Booking through Skeletons

btt button

What reading skeletons do you have in your closet? Books you’d be ashamed to let people know you love? Addiction to the worst kind of (fill in cheesy genre here)? Your old collection of Bobbsey Twin Mysteries lovingly stored behind your “grown-up” books? You get the picture … come on, confess!

I read a wide genre of books now. I have been doing that for a long time. But there was a time when I only read romances.....namely Mills & Boons and Harlequins. I still own around 400 of those books. I am trying give those away but something prevents me. When my mood needs boosting, I pick one up and start re-reading! Many of these romances have been read again and again. Some authors remain favourites even now: Liliane Peake, Carole Mortimer, Sally Wentworth and lot more. Janet Daily too. Does anyone else recall these authors?

Goodness, 400 Harlequins is a lot of romance! :) Hahaha nice answer.

Stop by The Crowded Leaf and join in on my new meme, What Were They Thinking?!

I am really ashamed to admit that I read the "House of Night" series. I don't own these books anymore.

I can honestly say I've never read a M&B book, but then, I've never really been into romances. I know a lot of people who love them though. :)

Never read a lot of those kinds of books; none of the authors you mention. Here's my BTT

I am not sure of the authors you listed, so I am pretty sure I've not read any books from them. Romance novels can be fun sometimes and nothing to hide from,lol.

I don't think anyone should be ashamed of anything they read.

Why should I be ashamed of owning to read something I used to love? And still do it at times...

Janet Dailey was a longtime favorite of mine growing up. I still have some of her older books to read when the mood strikes. I've read some of my romances over and over again too. I don't really do that with any other genre.
