Does anyone have any suggestions for adult books with YA pacing?
I mean books like Vicious by V.E. Schwab (my fave!) and her Shades of Magic series (my fave series ending ever). Both are addictive, fast paced, relatively short, and not primarily about self discovery.
I find myself reading a lot of YA because I love the pacing, but as I get older I find it harder and harder to relate to the protagonists. Adult books oftentimes move too slow to peak my interest and although I love fantasy, I don’t always have time to dive into a 800+ page novel.
I love fantasy books the most (The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch will forever be my fave because sharks, swearing, thievery, and humor), but I am open to reading other genres.
