Who doesn't love racy teen lit?

Via twitter, Cassandra Clare tweeted about Glamour magazine mentioning her books, The Mortal Instruments. The article goes on to express a guilty pleasure of loving to read racy teen lit. Read it here.

As stated in the article, the author says she's embarrassed to admit to reading teen lit. This I could relate to and it made me wonder who else felt this way? I know some of our followers ARE teens, and it's totally acceptable for you all.. but what about the oldER crowd here?

5 enjoyed the bouquet.:

There have been times when I've been embarrassed to browse the teen lit area. I think I'm much more embarrassed about looking through the romance section though.

I think my most embarrassing momentfor me was at Barnes & Noble when I was buying that Twilight Scene-It game, along with a few RPattz magazines before I came to visit MN!! lol I kept turning the box over, hoping no one would see it.. but the Twilight label was all over it!

I just always act as if I am browsing for gifts!
I'm not too embaressed to read really anything! I used to read Star Wars books in High School! and I read VC Andrews in 3rd grade!

HAHA! Yeah Jes, I read all the SW's a lot too! I don't think I hit VC quite THAT early but it was late grade school/early middle school! I guess I went kinda bacwards, adult books in the teen years, now I'm enjoying the teen books in my adult years!

This may be hard to believe, but I HATED reading up until a few years ago. So when I was a teenager, and SHOULD have been reading this stuff.. I didn't! I regret it now. But it's never too late to start!! lol
