This week's question is: What book are you embarrassed to admit you LOVED? (try to think beyond Twilight)

MY ANSWER: Embarrassed? Hmm...well I am embarrassed to admit that I read the Twilight books, but one that I am embarrassed that I loved/enjoyed? Hmm...that's a little hard. Normally I'm not embarrassed for liking particular books, although there have been some covers that I am shame-faced for reading and have to pull out the book covers!

I guess, maybe sort of...and really this is a sort of hesitation, because I wouldn't say I am embarrassed to having liked these, but yeah, I do get red faced with them and tend to want a hide a cover a bit as well!

Christine Warren's The Others series! 

It was bit more on the romantic side than I thought and I swear every time sex scenes come up and I'm reading in public, I feel like people know I am reading a sex scene!

It doesn't usually help when the covers are a bit racy either. Although these covers here and this one in particular are a bit tamed, even though there are definite suggestions of a sexual nature going on. Or perhaps I think that because I've read the book completely red faced!


  1. I don't often read in public but when I do it's usually on my phone so there are no covers to give away what I'm reading

    Thanks for stopping by my FF.

  2. i have felt the same way when reading a sex scene, Its even worse on audio. I am sure I am turning red.

  3. I totally agree with you, the cover may be the problem sometimes.

  4. I know exactly what you mean about covers and sex scenes. I only read those types of books on my iPad so nobody sees the covers and if someone walks in the room during a sex scene I usually go to an app or something, lol. Here's mine: My Feature

  5. Sex scenes... Ah yes I know how that is lol I try to hide the book when I can lol
    Thanks for stopping by earlier!

  6. Hopping through. It is a little awkward to read books with really big sex scenes around other people. I know what you mean - it's like they can tell.

  7. Racy covers aren't really a problem for me, since I have a kindle. But even when I read erotica, I'm not ashamed that I'm enjoying it! If I'm happy with a book and I really enjoy it, then it did its' job, you know?

    Thanks for stopping by earlier, Jessica. I hope you're having a fantastic Friday!

  8. I totally know what you mean about the sex scenes - sometimes you just have to glance around and make sure no one's looking too closely at what you're reading!! :-)

    Thanks for stopping by my FF!

  9. I feel the exact same, like everyone knows that's what I'm reading at that moment - especially when they look over at me!!! My FFF.

  13. LOL...I am the same way. I get all paranoid when I get to a racy scene. I swear I'm a dead giveaway ;)

  14. I totally agree with you about people just knowing I'm reading a sex scene! lol.

  15. If you are worried about sexy covers, you can get very cheap plastic book jackets from eBay or make your own. Just slip it on and no one will know you aren't reading classic literature :)

  16. I haven't heard of that book before. Interesting.

    Thanx for visiting my FF!

  17. Thanks for visiting my FF! I think that at least 2/3 of the embarrassment factor of any book is usually the cover. Also, you should definitely read (or listen to) Pride and Prejudice sometime. It's worth it! Old follower passing through. :)
