This week's question/activity:

What book are you embarrassed to admit you LOVED? (try to think beyond Twilight).

Hmmm... I'm generally not embarrassed that I read something and enjoyed it. If I were pressed, I'd probably just throw out the 'new adult' category that's emerged. And not because they're poorly written or whatnot, but because so far the ones I've read all seem to be the same formula... broken girl meets broken boy, they fall in love, something happens to tear them apart (secrets kept, past catches up...), then they forgive each other and move on, stronger than before. Yet, for some reason, I still enjoy them. I wouldn't say LOVED them, but enjoyed them. :)

What about you?

Smiles,
B

    1. I'm glad you do! I definitely enjoy them, but don't anticipate them as I do others. :)

  3. True, I've been avoiding New Adult for exactly the reasons you mentioned. But hey, if you liked them - more power to ya!

  4. It's really nice to see most of the answers being that they're not embarrassed about what they read! Because you shouldn't be. I haven't actually read any New Adult, but I'm not too bothered about samey-samey, as long as it's written well. :)

    1. I'm with you on the written well part. That's the key to nearly any book, formulaic or not. :)

      Thanks for stopping by!

  5. Hopping through. I like numerous formulaic romances. Formulas work for a reason.

    1. They haven't been bad, they just haven't blown my socks off. And it seems like so many of them include explicit sex scenes and it makes me wonder why not just dub yourself erotica... idk.

      Thanks for coming by!

  7. Aah, I have to say I love the NA category, although I definitely know what you mean about the formulaic plots and whatnot. Thanks for stopping by and following!

  11. I love NA, but the really good ones don't use the same formula...but you're right, most of them do and I fall for it every time! lol
