Books you're embarrassed you read and liked!

SCGSCG Posts: 5,416Registered Users
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. :laughing7:

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! :p

    That book has actually been made into a movie and it's really adorable! I watched on an airplane last month.

    I saw it on tv a little while ago! It was actually what inspired me to read the books. It was a cute movie!

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

    I loved those! I listened to the audio versions, and they were great, too.

    I liked Marcia Brady's autobiography. :confused5:

    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.

    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!
  • nynaeve77nynaeve77 Posts: 7,135Registered Users
    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. :smurf:
    I ain't thirsty. There's plenty of fish in the sea, but I don't want all of them, can I have some standards? Or do we just have to settle, for someone's who meh and will do.

    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.

    All books from VC Andrews (that I still own btw!) :oops:

    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!

    I also love the Georgia N books! Laugh out loud funny.

    Percy Jackson- adore and they are aimed at tween boys!

    Twilight (hate them now but devoured them all in a 3 days)

    Judith McNaught- sappy bodice ripper type (Im very sorry to say- but can only take these in very small dosage!)

    I love the Georgia Nicholson series! I even got some friends into it. One is a 25 year old big guy, and he definitely got some weird looks when he went to the library asking where Dancing in My Nuddy-Pants was located.

    I also read Twilight and liked it. I would never admit that in real life.

    Oh god lol! I tried reading the first book. It was soooo cheesy and badly written I cringed the whole way through. For such a 'hard-ass' vampire he sure does act like a pathetic sissy!

    Im sorry I couldn't stand it! The characters were so one-dimensional and annoyingly wet! :laughing6:

    I find 'teenage' adventure books some of the best out there. I get bit bored with some 'adult' books lol

    Probably why Harry Potter and Percy Jackson are and always be some of my fav books ever (along with Meg cabot!)

    I got a new bookcase this weekend so I organised all my books finally in one place- I have 28 books by meg Cabot! Its a very pink section lol
