'Fess Up!

Booking Through Thursday

Okay, there must be something you read that's a guilty pleasure . . . a Harlequin romance stashed under the mattress. A cheesy sci-fi book tucked in the back of the freezer. A celebrity biography, a phoned-in Western . . . something that you'd really rather not be spotted reading. Even just a novel if you're a die-hard non-fiction fan. Come on, confess. We won't hold it against you!

- There are many books that I read that I might consider as guilty pleasure and one I might consider are not. It just the question of what is guilty pleasure to you.

I think mainly to me, it would be the erotic genre that I would think be my guilty pleasure. I admit I have hide some erotic books, but there are some erotics that are put on shelves where it can be display for the world to see *grin*. I do love my erotic books.......enough said! :)

P.S. - You might wonder why I would hide my books in public, even when am upset about people labeling the book as "trashy" books. If am upset about that, I shouldn't hide it and not care what people think, right? Well I hide it because I don't want to go through confrontation with someone who tell me my books are trash. I want to avoid that at all cost. I may not be shy online, but I am in person. And if I know you, then am not shy to show you my erotic books or any books :) OOPs! I'm chatty today LOL!

Happy Booking Through Thursday!

Hey Julia, sometimes I think the covers don't do any justice to the books!!! Don't you hate it when people thinks it's a trashy book just because the cover features a couple embracing or whatever, even though it's a great read?

Happy BTT!

I so agree with you! I do hate it when people call it trashy books, urgh! They shouldn't judge until they read it, is my motto LOL

Thanks Melody for visiting my blog :)

I think anyone who would approach you to comment on your book as being trashy is just plain rude. I know some of the covers on certain types of books can be quite racy, but it's what's inside that counts--and that you enjoy what you read. :-)

No, not me! I respect whatever it is people are reading. :-)))) But I have encountered people coming to me and tell me this straight to my face, "Gosh, you're reading that ah?...", as if I've sinned or something like that. I'm speechless!

Melody said...

Exactly! I just hope those people will keep their opinions to themselves, after all to each his own.

Long live the "trashy" books. I love to read them and to heck what anyone else thinks. Someone will always have something to say.
