Gem City GypsyWhen you read “Gem City Gypsy” you must conceptualize a whole world.
The Wright Brothers.
The KKK.
Industrialization leading to WWI.
So many vivid elements. The story is about a gypsy girl who must leap over bodies to survive the sinking Lusitania and escape murderous Germans who kill her mentor in Ireland. She later returns to her hometown, recreated as a wealthy woman trying to meld into the upper class.  Neci Star captures our imagination and heart as she claws her way out of one class and into the abyss of another.

Thanks for the giveaway! I do not look at what category that a book is labeled, not really. I read what is is about and see if it sounds interesting.

I love adult fiction. I preferred adult fiction over YA while I was in high school and college. It was just recently that I read YA books.

Thanks for participating in this (and thanks to the author!)

I enjoy YA/NA much more than the standard adult fiction books. While similar, general story lines can be used, I just prefer how things get presented in NA. The few books I've seen in adult fiction lately take their stories too far for my tastes. I want the focus to be on the story, not on multiple, ridiculous sex scenes. If I'm reading adult fiction, it's almost exclusively going to be from one of the classics.

I can't really say since I dont pay that much attention to the classification of a book. I read a lot of books (many classified as one genre when they should be labeled as another) and believe that I do like NA. I like a book that has a good story with interesting characters and a little bit of sexy

I like new adult books along with many other genre's, it just depends on the story :)

I really like YA but I'm not so sure about New Adult. Where is the line between the two. I think some books are pushed as YA that should be considered NA because the content is a little mature for YA readers. I don't know. Just a thought.

I like adult fiction, never really got into YA fiction.

Amanda M. Bowman said...

I love adult fiction and some YA. I like alternating between the two genres based on the story and how much time I want to spend on reading a book. If I am on vacation I like meaty thick books. If I just want a very quick lead, I like YA.

Juan Jesús said...

I love YA and New Adult, as long as it is a good story with nice characters :)
