Books you're embarrassed you read and liked!

Like Tree1Likes

I recently started reading the Georgia Nicolson series... And I'm enjoying it so much, because they're hilarious! Unfortunately, they're geared towards girls like 5 years younger than me.

And the names of the books are all so ridiculous - Angus, Thongs, and Full Frontal Snogging being the first one. Yeah, the person working the counter at the library gave me a weird look for that one!

How about you guys? Are you reading/have you read any books you liked, but are embarrassing?

The entire Twilight series.

ETA: These books really were poorly written and very cheesy, and I had no desire to read them the first few years. One day I picked up Twilight because I was bored and ended up reading all 4 of them in 3 days. That's embarrassing enough, but I read them 4 times in two weeks!

I still have my American Girls books, and I get them out occasionally. Judy Blume books, too.

I liked Marcia Brady's autobiography.
I had 2 weeks off sick and ran out of reading material - and ended up reading the Twilight books (belong to daughter), and re-reading all of my Nancy Drew books.

It was great entertainment!

And I love the Angus, thongs and snogging film

Ender's Game. All 8 books in the series. They are in the category for young adult boys. I'm a 26 year old female.

Ahh, but they are so good! Kids battling aliens..and taking over the world!

Melissa Gilbert's autobiography. I'll admit it, I only read it to see which celebrities she'd slept with. I was like, "Whoa, Half-pint!" It actually was pretty entertaining.

No! No!

Melissa Gilbert slept around?

Another illusion shattered.
Sorry, Ninja...

I just can't wrap my mind around the idea of someone with that many freckles --- and who wore gingham on a regular basis---being promiscuous.

It's like.....Little Debbie being a stripper, or something!
Well, I wouldn't exactly say she was promiscuous. She was in relationships with most of the guys she was with. It was just a lot of guys (by my estimation). The stuff about her and Rob Lowe was pretty interesting.

I think it's best if we just forget we had this conversation, nynaeve.
Percy Jackson and the Olympians...not really embarrassed (I recommend them to all my friends), anything by Marian Keyes.
Tori Spelling! Stori Telling was hilarious. Mommywood was good too but not as funny. I love reading about celebrities trying to be 'normal'. She almost had it too!!

I too must add Twilight to the list. I just had to know what all the hype was about!!

Now I'm onto Nicholas Sparks books and can't stop reading them... so sad.
Why hello there, Mrs. Munkey!!! I think I know you from somewhere!!!

Hmm...sometimes I am embarrassed about the vampire books that I enjoy. The JR Ward ones, specifically. They really aren't that great, but the steamy parts are pretty good.

Unfortunately I cannot remember the name of the one romance novel I bought. Something about a nightingale or something. But that one too.

OMG. VC Andrews!!! I haven't read any of those in a LONG time...I will totally be looking for them at the used book store.

I liked the Flowers in the Attic series the best, and My Sweet Audrina was good, too!
