On the eighth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me…

Eight sparkly vampires!

The Cullens from “Twilight” by Stephenie Meyer

Seven deadly Horcruxes,

Six Lost Boys,

Five Famous Friends,

Four Little Women,

Three Weird Sisters,

Two Lovers’ Daemons,

And Mr Darcy in a wet shirt!

“You could run from someone you feared, you could try to fight someone you hated. All my reactions were geared toward those kinds of killers – the monsters, the enemies. When you loved the one who was killing you, it left you no options. How could you run, how could you fight, when doing so would hurt that beloved one? If your life was all you had to give your beloved, how could you not give it? If it was someone you truly loved?” 
― Stephenie Meyer, Breaking Dawn

I freely admit that i am a bookworm. (Nobody seems to use this word anymore, have you noticed?)

I was in fact assigned the official award for being a “bookworm” for my Year 6 class when i was a child.

So it is no surprise that i like books, any books. Well, nearly any books.

I recently started reading Charles Dickens’ “A Tale of Two Cities”, which i have never read before and decided that i need to cross it off my list of classics never read.

I am about 1% of the way through, according to my Kindle, but i have now been compelled to read something else as well. What wonderful book has turned my head away from a classic Dickens, i hear you wonder.

I picked up a paperback of….. “Twilight” by Stephenie Meyer.

Oh yes, i am afraid to say that i do kind of like “Twilight”. My bad.

It’s a guilty pleasure, and i do read it from time to time, usually when it pops into my head and i feel that i HAVE to read it. Ok, so it’s lower in rank than many of the contents of my bookshelves, but everyone has that one book they like to read on the sly!

That is my confession.

Which book is YOUR guilty pleasure?
