Fall 2015 Edition

The Perfect Match: A seasonal feature where I play matchmaker but with books! What happens when you take Book A and combine it with Book B? The answer is Book C!

This time I’m giving you one hybrid for all ages: one YA, one NA and one Adult!

Why This Match?

Charade is one of my favourite New Adult novels because I love the connection the characters make while dealing with a family illness. I loved the relationship that forms. Maggie & West in Until Friday Night really reminded me of Mia & Jace from Muse. She’s a bit of an outcast at school and he’s the BFF of her family member who brings her out of her shell. Just a sweet romance that deals with some heavier stuff in both cases.

Why This Match?

The leads in Bad Romeo meet while attending a drama program in university–much like the leads in Losing It. I also thought the humour in both books was pretty similar. Fifty Shades of Grey may seem like an odd choice but the mystery of Ethan’s past in Bad Romeo and how Cassie helps him confront it was really reminiscent of the mystery behind Christan Grey…just minus all the BDSM/alpha crap.

Why This Match?

Playing for Keeps and Tangled were two of the funniest adult contemporary novels I have ever read…and Wallbanger deserves to be in their company. The antics between Simon and Caroline reminded me of the tension between Jason and Haley (Playing for Keeps). Then you have the character development and them discovering what it means to be in a relationship, much like Drew and Katherine discover in Tangled. All of these books are so much fun but still have that sweeter side them.
