This week's question is: What is your guilty pleasure as far as reading? Is it a genre, or is it a certain type of book?


I love it when the nemesis becomes the close friend later on in the books. Something about the friction and hatred in the beginning and watching the characters get past it to become friends later - and usually better friends is a favorite of mine. I really like this in romantic relationships as well. Reading the ones where they don't really get along at all at first, but then gradually grow to tolerate, to accept, and then to love. Nothing better than reading funny arguments.

  1. I like a good love/hate relationship, too, as long as it's done well. There's nothing worse than cheeseball dialogue, IMO, but if it's done right it can be funny and emotional and really show character progression.


    Thanks for stopping by Cherie Reads!

  2. Ooh that's a great answer! I think that's hard to do well, but when the author pulls it off, it's always way awesome! Happy Friday!

  4. I agree...it takes a certain kind of story and author to pull it off, but I do enjoy it when done the right way. Thank you so much for stopping by :D Happy Friday!

  5. Hopping through. Interesting answer - there's not many books like that. You should read The False Prince by Jennifer Nielsen.

  6. I love that too. I love it when the bad guy has enough layers to give us something to root for and then throw in romance and I'm a goner! Makes me think of your Vlad character you cast in your Sidekick Saturdays. Old follower here. Here's my FF.

  7. I've read stories like that, they seem to hate each other at first but you can picture them together later on.

    Ooh I love that too honestly! Seeing that the "bad boy" or whoever, if it happens to be a bitchy girl, really does have a softer side! Yeah, I definitely like it more when it's more in the relationship sense, but The Soul Screamers series definitely has that with Kaylee and Sophie!

    Here's my Follow Friday

    Have a GREAT weekend!

  17. Ooh, I totally agree! :) My first thought was of Rachel and Trent. I like relationships that start out prickly and then turn sweet too. Happy Friday, Jaclyn!
