Hey bookworms! How is your week going? I can’t believe it’s already Thursday! I swear without school I have no internal clock… Any who today is about the books we try to hide the cover from eyes… Well at least in public… Let’s face it when it comes to blogging I have no shame admitting to other readers what I am reading. I feel like the internet is easier to own up because you guys get past the sweet shell and get to the real bookworm. So that is how I am going to handle this question because let’s face it I’d never be ashamed to admit what I am reading to you all. So with that said let me talk about the books I am glad to own an e-reader for so no one can peak at the cover and some with content that might get me judged if outside people knew about the content. The choices listed below are also quick reads in my opinion and is another factor of what makes them guilty pleasures. They aren’t really to feed my time just things to pass the time. So with all that said let’s begin!
Day 23: Guilty Pleasure Reads
Before I get started let me say the first book isn’t just for the book, but for the genre. Unless you know me personally I give off a sweet and innocent girl. I am not one to openly check out people. 1. I am loyal 2. I am veeeeery picky If I do look or think things at least I like to think to myself that I am very discreet. So a genre I am glad to have a nook for is New Adult. Some of the covers are a dead give away to the content and therefore a give away from what is going through my head. Not only are the covers a give away but the titles are too.
Exhibit A: Losing It by Cora Carmack
I mean by the position and look of her face on the cover. You have a pretty good idea what they’re doing or at the very least: What I’m reading and let’s just say I don’t want random strangers to come up with uncomfortable or false ideas about me. People who take the time to know me can get to know my true mind ^_~
So if you don’t know what this book is about I won’t spoil it, but it was banned when it first came out for it’s content. If you read it now you can still get why people were/are turned off by it, but again if you look deeper at the themes you can pick apart some reason and even some understanding and sympathy for these characters. Then again it may just be the English major in me.
Well that is it for now bookworms! How do you feel about reading certain books in public? Do you have guilty pleasures or do you show all your reads off with pride? Let me know down below in the comments and if you have read the two books listed above your thoughts on them. Happy Reading!
