I like to read trashy novels.
So when I went to the airport last week, crying my eyes out.... a total mess over leaving my kids and going to florida, I went to one of those airport shops and bought a couple books to cheer me up (and so that I could do something productive instead of crying the whole 3 1/2 hours on the plane). I'm embarrassed to say it, but I will, since I seem to write everything on this blog.... It was called The Quickie by James Patterson. I am not embarrassed to admit that I like to read trashy novels. Well maybe a little embarrassed, but I think most woman do. The other book I bought was Remember Me by Sophie Kinsella (author of Confessions of a Shopaholic).
I read Remember Me which was just a fun, easy, not too trashy, would like it to be a little more.. kind of book. For those of you who read it... I have two words.. Mont Blanc... Hahahaha. I liked that book.
I was way too embarrassed to read the other one on the plane. Especially not while sitting next to a guy who had his wife's hand on his leg and was going to Cancun for a getaway.
Anyway, I am reading it now and you know, I think I would really like to meet this guy James Patterson, because his "quickie" in the book lasted well over an hour. And if that's his idea of a quickie.......
The only quick thing about the book are his chapters. So annoying. Only 2-3 pages each. His writing is awful. I can't believe people read his books! I am not a great writer myself, but I am finding it quite painful to read. And this is coming from a woman who enjoys reading Junie B. Jones and the Dear Dumb Diary Series! (With the kids of course...)
I think that now that the good part is over, and truthfully it wasn't even that good, I might have to pass this book on to whoever has enough tolerance to read it. I think I'll stick to Nora Roberts for now... Anyone read Northern Lights by Nora Roberts? That was a good book.
I do read other books too. Not just fun and trashy. I loved A Child Called It and the ones that followed. Made me sick to my stomach that any person could be so cruel. Made me want to crawl into bed with my kids and give them a hug.
And I used to read all the Oprah book club books. But these days I don't have a lot of time to read, so I prefer the easy, fun, not too heavy ones.
Oh.... and US Weekly and In Style..... do those count?
