Follow Friday (44)



Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee's View and Alison Can Read



This week's question:

What is your guilty pleasure as far as reading? Is it a genre? Or is it a certain type of book?

I was surprised by my own answer! Young Adult is definitely my guilty pleasure. My fave genres are adult Urban Fantasy and Paranormal Romance, with all their fighting, supernatural mysteries, and steamy sex. But, a YA book is a guilty pleasure for me because I can read them quickly and often the plots are more straightforward. Its fun to read about characters in those tumultuous teen years, coming of age and experiencing all the angst and first love. And when you throw in vamps, weres, witches, goddesses, post-apocolyptic worlds, and other monsters, things get EVEN BETTER! Some YA books are even more complicated, emotional, and shocking than adult books. And when a YA book is like that it feels like even MORE of a guilty pleasure!

Some of my favorite guilty pleasure YA books/series:
Unravel Me (Shatter Me, #2) My Soul to Save (Soul Screamers, #2) Crimson Frost (Mythos Academy, #4) Opal (Lux, #3) 
Deity (Covenant, #3) Scarlet (Lunar Chronicles, #2) The Golden Lily (Bloodlines, #2) Last Sacrifice (Vampire Academy, #6)
What's your reading guilty pleasure?

  1. I don't reads TONS of YA, but probably too much to consider it a guilty pleasure. I think when I read a cheesy teenage love scene, though, and totally love it, then it becomes a guilty pleasure! :D Great answer. Old follower. Happy Friday!

  2. I love most all of those books! (A few I haven't had a chance to read yet!) I love Richelle Mead and I am a huge fan of the Soul Screamers series.

  7. I love the whole first love thing in YA books, too!! The Lux series and The Lunar Chronicles. Definitely some of my favorite series. Although the ending of Opal was brutal. I need Origin!
