You’re probably thinking, “X.. what?” but wait for it. X is and abbreviation meaning adult audiences only. How clever am I? Not very, but there isn’t a whole lot of x words if you haven’t noticed.
So, x is for adult content only. I’m not talking about 50 Shades of Grey here. That’s not really my thing. BUT I do enjoy a book with some steamy romance parts every once and a while. What 20 year old girl doesn’t? I love reading YA books and even sometimes some middle grade books, but I love my adults only books. It’s not the writing or that the characters are older, I just like reading about some things that are for a slightly older audiences. The YA books only have so much romance in them.
Here’s some of my favourite adult content books:
- Slave to Sensation by Nalini Singh
Kind of sounds like an erotica book but I promise it’s not. It’s a really cool fantasy series with some heavy romance in it.
- Bitten by Kelley Armstrong
Another fantasy series that isn’t as “adult” as the previous one. Still, there are some sex scenes so close your eyes children.
- A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness
This one doesn’t have any inappropriate scenes like the others but it’s still a very adult book just because of content. The writing is more adult, the characters are older and there’s references to things younger people just wouldn’t understand. I think only adults can really enjoy this book.
