Day 18: Book you’re most embarassed to say you like
I’ve read my fair share of books that I have liked despite myself, the type where I blush when I tell people that I enjoyed them.
I love a shameless re-reading of the fantasy books I read when I was younger, of young adult books in general. I get wrapped up in a book by author’s like Jodi Picoult, whose work many of my friends would never think to read. But there are fourteen books on my shelf, all written by a single author, that are the most embarassing to admit that I liked them (devoured them!).
Argeneau/Rogue Hunter Series – Lynsay Sands
This series is pure guilty pleasure. Vampire romance at its most powerful – and I have loved reading most of them! Devoured each one in a day or so. These books are like comfort food, in sexy vampire romance form. Perfectly paired with your most comfortable bed sheets, a glass of wine and a tub of icecream.
Though, to admit, I have gotten a little bit over them. It’s hard to sustain interest after the twelfth book…
Nonetheless, despite being the most embarassing books I have on my shelf, I do really like these. In fact, my favourite part of them isn’t the romance, or the sexy vampires, but the vampire (‘immortal’, more accurately) origin story. I’ve read a lot of vampire books, a lot of ideas about their origins, but Sands has written my favourite. Think Atlantis, nanotechnology and a medical cure for every illness. Side-effects: need for blood, eternal youth, virtual immortality. I think it’s fantastic! Doesn’t stop them from being embarassing though… 😛
