    The first Kushiel trilogy by Jacqueline Carey. Not because they were badly written or anything, far from it. Carey is an incredible writer. The storyline and characters were wonderful. It's just that ...they were kind of smutty, lol. Downright kinky, to be honest. I wouldn't recommend them to my mother, or even a teenager. I probably wouldn't recommend them to anybody unless I was sure the person wouldn't get uncomfortable or offended by- shall we say... alternative intimate practices. ;)

    Oh, is that series about the cats? My daughter reads those and is a huge fan! Those are GREAT kids' books!

    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

    I LOVE Meg Cabot. I'm slowly working on my own personal collection but keep ILLing a ton of her books (my local library is shockingly lite on her catalog). One of my prize possessions is a copy of Princess Forever autographed by her my cousin gave me as a maid of honor present. I also follow Meg on Twitter. I love her tweets, she totally seems like the type of person I'd be BFF's with.

    I've been very addicted to YA fiction lately, though there's a lot of supernatural out there that is getting way old. I just read Going Bovine by Libba Bray and loved it.

    Trashy trashy bodice rippers like

    'Ransom my heart' by Meg Cabot and, worse, Judith Mcnaught books with titles like 'Whitney my love'. Gag.

    In fact I don't really like these, they irritate me, but sometimes you just need to read some really trashy, pathetic, sappy book like that, full of tiny beautiful, kind heroines who need a bad tempered, older, dark and brooding (who is naturally a sex god in bed), man, who they reform. I hate these books, the story is always the same, and the characters awful, but... I do admit to owning a few and reading them occasionally when I feel the need *blush*

    Nancy Drew/ Hardy Boys Super Mysterious. Written at the height of 80s cheesiness, but so so good. Seriously considered wrapping them in some type of paper while out in public....

    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

    Twilight series

    Black Dagger Brotherhood series

    Jackie Collins' books

    Shopaholic series

    Bergdorf Blondes & the Debutante Divorcee by P. Sykes

    I LOVED the Shopaholic series....I started reading it years ago. I'm embarrased that I'm waiting for the release of the lastest edition....

    I'm embarrased to admit that I'm a HUGE Anita Blake series fan. I've read and own all 19 books.

    I stalked the library for these books as a kid. Let's not forget the Babysister's Club either!

    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! :eek:

    HEY! PERCY JACKSON IS NOT FOR LITTLE BOYS!!! *shakes fist*

    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*

    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.:happy4:

    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! :D

    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 :D

    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! :angel9:
    I STILL LOVE my steamer! :toothy4:[SIGPIC][/SIGPIC]

    :D 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.
