Guilty Pleasures

As far as your reading, do you have any guilty pleasures? There are times when I do not want to analyze anything but want a good, tight storyline that keeps me interested. These are typically books that I would never pick up otherwise. Not because they are not well written, but just because they are so different than my typical tried and trues. That sounds like an awkward statement, “tried and trues” but that is what I call them.

One of my fave indulgences is any book by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child. They’ve written many books together and I’ve liked all of them. Some more than others but as a rule, they are pretty consistent. The first book I tried was Relic. It was later made into a really bad movie but I loved the book. I later enjoyed Riptide and Mount Dragon. Both of which were good.

Another indulgence is anything by Dean Koontz. My fave being Watchers which was also made into a horrible movie with Corey Haim of all people. UGH! What’s up with all the horrible movie adaptations?

‘Fess up. What are some of your guilty pleasures as far as reading is concerned?

  1. I usually turn to fluffy chick lit when I need a break. Jennifer Weiner, Anna Maxted, and recently, Meg Cabot, have been some of my favorites. I also like to pick up small volumes of short fiction that I know I can read in one sitting if I just need a short break.

  2. Romance novels! I am a sucker for a good love story with a happy ending.I have Diana Gabaldon’s first one in my TBR, I keep thinking I should move it up.

  3. My guilty pleasure is definitely chick lit, preferably by British authors.Shana< HREF="" REL="nofollow">Literarily<>

  4. I guess if I had to say it would be a little chic lit, or lately a certain young adult series that I can’t put down. 🙂
