Sometimes I need to break up my reading a little bit. I might listen to an audiobook, read an adult novel, bury myself in a classic, and sometimes I indulge in trash.
And I feel SO guilty about it.
I don’t question swapping out a review book for a classic, but picking up a New Adult read on my Kindle? Which I would never read in physical form, by the way. That, I feel guilty about.
But it’s New Adult that gets me out of my slump. It’s New Adult that I fly through without thinking about having to write a review or when I need to finish it by. I just enjoy it. Or enjoy ripping it apart.
Why should I feel guilty about reading something that makes me happy? Something that’s easy and relaxing?
Do you feel guilty about your guilty pleasures?
