I’m not so sure that a pleasure should be guilty, not if it isn’t hurting anyone else or against any law. But, in the spirit of this blog post I shall share with you what would be considered as my guilty pleasure.
Some would call certain books that I read trashy love stories, I would call them books. I have a huge collection of Mills and Boon/Harlequin type books, as well as others in this particular genre. And I am not ashamed to say I love reading this type of book, nor am I ashamed to say I love the Twilight saga – both the book trilogy and the films. I’m not really interested in anyone else’s opinion on whether this is trashy, it’s my escape not their’s.
On social media I have witnessed people aim sly digs my way whenever I’ve shared anything about my “guilty pleasure” but I’ve just ignored them. On social media I have witnessed people posting almost constantly about soap operas, reality TV shows and zombie led shows.
Do I like such things?
Nope. But I respect that person’s right to enjoy whatever show or book, or film, that they damn well please. For the record, I hate zombie stuff and reality tv and soaps, but if anyone else likes them then that’s just fine. It is their prerogative to watch this stuff, or read books about these things, just as it is mine to read what I do.
So, if you want to deem it as my guilty pleasure, that’s up to you. I, on the other hand, don’t feel any guilt at all about reading and enjoying ROMANCE NOVELS.
