These books my friend, are most likely part of the new book genre called New Adult. "New Adult fiction bridges the gap between Young Adult and Adult genres. It typically features protagonists between the ages of 18 and 26." (goodreads.com) This means that these books still has that Young Adult feel to it but now, it has more mature and in depth issues regarding family, life, and love. These books are usually set in college or during the protagonists' first job and it usually involves that person's first serious relationship.
Who doesn't love a good drama? The books in this genre is full of that and that is one of the main reasons why a lot of people are getting hooked. New Adult books show the start of the "outside world" for most people and although it can be unrealistic at times, a good escape from reality is just what a person might need.
