Follow Friday (#4)

Follow Friday is a fun way for bloggers to find new blogger friends!  It's hosted by Rachel at Parajunkee's View, and it's such an awesome idea! 

And the Feature blog this week is:
And the question this week is...
"What is the book that you really don't want to admit to loving?"
Now, this is a hard one.  I'm really quite open about what books I like: I don't care if people think I'm insane (which is a good thing, as that is what all my family thinks of me).  But, I guess I do have one or two guilty pleasures...  One is Shakespeare: everytime I mention how Romeo and Juliet or King Lear being on my favourites list, people tend to stare at me like I've lost my mind.  Did you know that apparently it's weird to be able to understand Shakespeare-talk?  Another would be all my movie/TV tie-ins (Buffy, X Files, Charmed), and a 7+ series called Beast Quest.  I don't know if any of you remember, but a few weeks ago, a boy called William did a review for my blog (you can see it: here).  Well, he has a twin brother, Joshua, who loved the series by Adam Blade and made me read them.  Honest, he actually pestered me every time he saw me until I gave in.  The books are easy, definately too young for me, but full of action and mythical creatures. 
Well, there are the books I can't admit to loving.  Only, I guess I've just admitted...  Well, anyway!  Sorry if I bored you with a that!
Thanks for stopping by!  If you found me through FF, leave a link so I can follow you back.  Once again, if not, you could always leave a comment telling us about your guilty pleasure!
Thanks and have a great weekend, one and all!

I read a bunch of the roswell books a while back.

Embarrassing. . .

Happy Friday and thanks for following me! Following back!

Have a fabulous, book-filled weekend!

My brother used to read Beast Quest. But then he got bored because they were all basically the same!

Delphyne said...

TV tie-ins is a great answer! :)

I'm a Shakespeare girl! My blog buddy and I go around school quoting Hamlet and people look at us funny- I think the whole thing is great! Here's my hop:
Happy reading and have a lovely weekend!

I've seen some surprising answers but I think my response to this week's Follow Friday question will shock most.

I have to say that I loved the Harry Potter series but have a really hard time admitting it. It's teenage stuff. Perfect for the YA audience, sure.

But a grown man who just last week blogged about wishing he could step inside the Rogue Warrior book series with Navy SEALs shooting, looting, drinking and wenching has got a real hard time admitting to loving teenie-bopper Harry Potter.

I go into much more detail on my blog and welcome all comments -

All I ask is that everyone try and keep their comments civil. It's cool to disagree but flame wars are NOT cool.

Thank God it's Follow Friday!

People look at me the same way when I say I like YA books. They just don't know what they are missing!!

Yours is the longest answer I've seen so far. Mine are so short!

Happy weekend!

Sara: Well did you like them? If you enjoyed them, then there's nothing to be embarressed about!
Jessi: Thank you, and you're welcome!
Delphyne: Thanks! I thought so: it's a little embarressing, but I love 'em!
One Pushy Fox: Thank you!
Gina: I quote it too. And I get annoyed when people quote it wrong! My family does it on purpose now! Thanks!
Howard Sherman: HP's the best. No one should feel embarressed by that one! (:
Mrs C: Yeah, I refounded them! I had to have an 'X', so I found X-Files. Love 'em! And thank you!
Christy: Shame on them! They should so read them: they're sooo much better than adult books! (:
aLmYbNeNr: Yup, I have a tendency for going on an on! Thank you!
Dana Amla: Thank you! I will!
