Follow Friday - Embarrassing

Follow Friday is a feature created by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read.  It's a fun blog hop where you meet other book bloggers and find people to follow.
What book are you embarrassed to admit you LOVED? (try to think beyond Twilight).
I'm going to be honest with you here, I don't tend to be embarrassed by books that I love. Sometimes I'm surprised and not sure why I like a book or series so much, but embarrassed...nope. Honestly I think there's a place for fun books and guilty pleasure reads.  Some of my favorite books are silly and snarky and they completely own it.  I'm not the pseudo-intellectual type who gets judgey judgey about the type of books you should like. Like snarky fun YA? GOOD. Love serious literature with densely written prose? Good for you! Devour guilty pleasure erotic e-books? That's fine too (if all you ever read is very poorly written re-purposed fanfiction that might be a problem, but if you read that and other stuff then fine by me). Honestly most of us adults read for enjoyment, so read books, have fun and be merry.

Good answer. I picked mine based on the reaction I get from people when I gush about them, not really that I am embarrassed of them per se. Here's mine: My Feature

Hey! I like poorly written fanfiction. ;-) Not really, I love well written fan fiction. I know what you mean.

Exactly! Everybody likes different things, and no one should judge or be embarrassed about that. :)

I feel the exact same, sometimes I question why I love a book but I am never embarrassed by it! Instead, I pretty much proclaim my love to anyone who will listen.

Well-written fanfiction is perfectly fine by me. I had my fanfic writing days. Been feeling like reading some fanfiction again lately. (I may have been slyly referring to one particularly bad well known fanfic-to-novel).
