Q: What is your guilty pleasure as far as reading? Is it a genre, or is it a certain type of book?


Oooh, guilty reading pleasure? I'd have to say young adult books. Since I am a good 20 years more A(dult) than Y(oung). I think that I enjoy them so much because they are usually quick reads and they are different from my life. As a single mom of two little boys, I don't really want to read about single moms with kids. I'd rather read about someone completely different from me. What about you?

  1. Good answer! I used to feel guilty about reading YA but no more! Lots of adults love so no need for guilt :)

    1. I guess this is one time when it is a GOOD thing that hardly anyone I know reads...I don't have to defend myself in reading YA! ;-) Thanks for the friend request on GR. I added you asap!

  2. I'm still a teenager so I'm not embarrassed by reading YA book but I think they'd become my guilty little pleasure when I'm older. :)

    1. I think that it is one of the most popular genres right now but it's good to hear that I am not the only one that enjoys it ;-)

  3. Well, I'm 19, but I'll probably keep reading YA many more years ;)

    1. Yes, you probably will but when I was in college I wanted to read older. I didn't want to read about my age then. As I've gotten older my tastes have changed back to reading YA. Full circle. Thanks for the follows. Following back!

  4. I definitely think that as you become more A than Y it starts to feel like a guilty pleasure. Other adults look at you and are like really?! But as the years add on I still find myself sticking to the YA section, and I can't imagine myself ever leaving it. Those teenyboppers will just have to get out of my way! Muhaha... ;)

    1. I don't think I'll ever stop reading it either AND I think that the authors and works are just getting better and better!

      Thanks for the follow..following back on bloglovin!

  5. Ha, almost all of my friends read and even though most of them are my age some of them the read Tolstoy and Voltaire so I have to defend my books a lot. (-_-ll)


    Odd because I'm a young adult reading young adult books... no need to be defending my book choice. But I still do. Just becasue they're not intellectual doesn't mean they aren't awesome! :D

    1. I've learned in all my years that sometimes people read "intellectual" books and don't know what in the heck they even are about! LOL I feel strongly for reading what you want to read. My mom reads books that I wouldn't touch but she enjoys them and that's what counts!

  6. I'm only a few years out of the "young adult" age bracket, but even I get strange looks sometimes when I mention my reading preferences. I just think it's important to read what you enjoy, whatever that may be!

    1. YA rocks! Glad that others love it so much too. And I totally agree that the whole point is to read what we want to read because we like it.

      Thanks for the follow. Off to check your F&F.

  7. I'm with you on that Dana. I love YA because I'm not a YA for one, and second they are such fast reads!
