Books you're embarrassed you read and liked!

All of the Harlequin books that I read. It started when I was in a train station and I was talking with some lady and mentioned that I had forgotten my boos at home. She let my read one of her Valentine edition anthologies, and I loved this novella called "Chocolate Kisses." (I know, cheesy, right?) She let me have that book, and I've managed to make my Harlequin "library" larger since then. I read quite a few when I have the time. Don't tell anyone!
Percy Jackson books are aimed at boys? Please don't tell that to my 9-year-daughter, who thinks they are the best books EVER! I liked them, too, though not nearly as much as I liked the Harry Potter series.

I read a lot of books that are recommended to me by my kids. I like a lot of books that are aimed at older elementary school kids and tweens. Books for adults often have too many extremely disturbing scenes of violence. Some of my favorite books that are aimed at kids are:

the Books of Ember series- Jeanne DuPrau
Olive's Ocean- Kevin Henkes
Elsewhere- Gabrielle Zevin
Memoirs of a Teenage Amnesiac- Gabrielle Zevin
If I Stay- Gayle Forman

OK - maybe the were originally intended for them but I think they are brilliant and they are my favorite books in the world (in fact I mostly just read 'teenage' fiction and I don't care lol)

Also I have a bad habit of getting book crushes on characters *cough* Percy Jackson being one of them! *ahem*
Although im not embarrassed i still hav my 30+ collection of Goosebumps books that i had read all in one summer as a kid. Im a college student and i still keep them on my bookshelf but i cant seem to let them go, even though i havent read them in so long.

Well I've just started _Lover Unleashed_ by J.R. Ward today.

J.R.Ward - The Black Dagger Brotherhood, Dark Lover, Lover Eternal, Lover Awakened

I think I've posted my shame of them here before?... so as of today, I've read and/or listened to all of the BDB books. Some more than once.

For some reason I'm ashamed of most chick lit..I love reading it but hate carrying around this big pink book with a large glittering picture of a shoe on it ha ha

I've got some does-it's-own-thing 3B hair!

Big fan of curl-activating creams (to balance the mostly-3B with some wannabe-4ish hair). Not such a fan of gels (it makes it crispy and dry, then I start playing with it, then it gets frizzy, then I get frustrated and start looking for scissors...)

Always wished I could have bangs and I'm attempting them this evening. Wish me luck!
lol....I thought I was the only one. Books with high heels, rings and pink covers make me blush. However, sometimes I need something to read that's just easy, flowery and fun!

Get a Kindle! No one will ever know what you're reading! Best gadget I've ever owned and best gift from hubby!

I'm embarrassed to say that I seem to be interested in vampire books. Not sure where that came from, but it started last Spring :|

And since getting my Kindle, I've been reading a lot of independent authors, not ashamed of that, just sharing

Any sex book. I like to stay informed, but I really don't want anyone to know that I have a good stash of "sex" manuals. I made the mistake of leaving a copy of "Yummy Sex" in the bathroom when I still lived at home, and my Mom found it!
I STILL LOVE my steamer!

Keeping it simple...
@MontrealLady... a Kindle is a good idea. I download free audiobooks from my local library onto my IPod. I've listened to several of the vampire books including the Twilight and House of Knight series. I'm listening to one now called "Blood Oath: The President's Vampire."

Lol....kinda cheesy but still fun.

I loved the Sookie Stackhouse ones. Just read an independent author's series, loved it. Her name is Amanda Hocking.

i gave all my goosebumps books to my younger relatives, after i reread them all!

i love vc andrews! when i saw flowers in the attic, which is not much like the book, i had to read the book! i was like 7 or 8 i think. my mom never read the book so she had no idea!

Can you imagine a 7 year old walking around reading that book! after that i was hooked! I was devestated to find out the newer books weren't written by her because she was dead!! you can so tell the difference between vc andrews and the ghost writter andrews.
