Follow Friday - November 1

Friday Follow is a blog hop that was started by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read.  Each week a different question is posted by our hosts and we will answer!  This is a great opportunity for bloggers to network and interact. 
This week’s question – 

What book are you embarrassed to admit you LOVED? (try to think beyond Twilight).

This is a tough one for me.  I don't think I've ever been embarrassed for liking a book.  I used to be embarrassed because I liked to read so much but I soon got over that when I found my own inner self-confidence and didn't care what others thought.  I LOVED Christopher Pike books and Sweet Valley High books when I was younger (much younger).  Looking back at them now and comparing them to the YA fiction on today's shelves, they might seem rather tame and a bit predictable.  What's your embarrassing read?

  1. Well, I was going to say Twilight but it says think beyond it. Aside from bodice-ripper books that I was embarrassed to tell my friends, I don't have any book to be embarrassed about.

  3. I agree, I wish that they had the YA books that they have now when I was in school. I also read the Sweet Valley books. I picked a 2 children's book series for mine that I read a couple of years ago. My Feature
