This week’s topic:
Guilty pleasure books
My guilty pleasure books are erotica and bodice-ripping romance and urban novels. I don’t own many since I unhauled most of them so here’s my small selection.
If you recall my Top Ten Tuesday post where I discussed my most-read authors, you’ll remember that among those middle-grade/young-adult fantasy authors were romance authors — Rochelle Alers and Mary B. Morrison — and an honorable mention to an erotica author, Zane. Back in the day, I read a lot of romance and some erotica and urban fiction. But I haven’t read much of them lately. I read a short erotica story last year and hated it and before that, I attempted Fifty Shades of Grey, which I think I DNF’ed. I haven’t read much romance either except the young-adult fantasy books that are dripping with it and I haven’t touched a Black urban fiction novel in years. But, a time will come when I’ll be in the mood to read them again.
Here are a few I’d like to reread to see if I’ll still enjoy them:
Lessons of a Lowcountry Summer by Rochelle Alers
The Coldest Winter Ever by Sista Souljah
Street Dreams by K’wan
True to the Game by Teri Woods
Skyscraper by Zane
So, what are your guilty pleasure books?
How this meme works:
- Take a “shelfie” (a picture of your bookshelf). Preferably literal, but e-shelves work too.
- Write something on the day’s prompt.
- Give the blurb and the cover of the book (and what you thought of it if you’ve read it).
- Link back to Victoria’s post.
