This got me thinking about my own guilty pleasures. When it comes to TV, I have several, including Grey's Anatomy, Private Practice, and Dance Moms. The last one is particularly awful....I'm embarrassed to admit I watch it, but the little girls are incredibly talented and it's fun to watch them dance.
But what about books? Have you ever read a book that's considered pure escapism? My reading guilty pleasure would have to be Pretty Little Liars. These books are completely addictive....I powered through the entire series in a matter of days, and occasionally I tune into the TV show, which deviates enough from the novels to still surprise me. Now, I doubt you'll find anyone who argues that Pretty Little Liars is great literature (nor does it aim to be). And as a writer, I do love great literature. But their appeal and enjoyability can't be denied. And sometimes, escapism is exactly what the doctor ordered.
So what about you guys? Do you have any guilty pleasures, reading or otherwise?
