Wonderful Wednesdays #4 (Guilty Pleasures)
Wonderful Wednesdays is a meme about spotlighting and recommending some of our most loved books, even if we haven't read them recently. Each week will have a different theme or genre of book to focus on.
This week's theme is guilty pleasures.
What books do you love but don't want to admit you love?
My own guilty pleasure is the Sookie Stackhouse series by Charlaine Harris. It's definitely a guilty enjoyment because I'm one of those snobs that looks down on paranormal romance and goes on about how they mainly read literary fiction/classics! :P
But I'm a sucker for a good story as much as anyone else and when I'm tired or had a bad day or my brain isn't working properly or it's been too long since my last holiday, I love the pure escapism of these books. I like getting inside Sookie's head for a while and I like that I know most of the characters before I even open the first page. Reading one of these, my mind is always taken off whatever is worrying me.
How about you?
