BTT - Skeletons

In honor of Halloween this weekend:

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 romance? Your old collection of Bobbsey Twin Mysteries lovingly stored behind your “grown-up” books? You get the picture … come on, confess!

This is a bit difficult...I never feel ashamed of what I read. But if I really have to choose which one is it, then I choose a series of romance by Kyoko Hikawa.

I don't like Shoujo Manga (Manga for girls) because it always fill with cheesy teenagers romance, however there is this 1 series I love so much. The story is about Chizumi, a very careless girl, and her boyfriend, Fujiomi who is very handsome but cold. No girl dares to get close to him, but when he starts dating Chizumi...all the girls started thinking that Fujiomi is not as cold as he seems.

BUT....in truth, I'm not ashamed of this Manga at all, I even recommend it to my friends, let's just say this one is the most different of all books I usually read.

There are 3 books that tell the story of Chizumi and Fujiomi and I love all 3 of them.

I still couldn't read any Romance novel...but I can allow some romance Manga to enter my shelf :)

How bout you?

Great answer. I don't think we should ever be ashamed of something we love to read.

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

I've never read any manga - perhaps I should give it a try, although I don't think I'd go for the romance ones - not my style at all.

It is grea to read all kinds of books and there is no reason to be ashamed or try to hide it either.

@Alayne Your meme is funny...I like it

@Diaryofadomesticgoddes It's not my style too :)
I usually read Shonen Manga (Manga for boys) but there are some exceptions, some shoujo manga that I like

@SocialFrog I haven't read all kind of book genre, but when I finally do, I won't be ashamed of that genre I read.

Great post! I don't think people should be ashamed of what they read either.

Shoujo manga I recommend Lovely Complex, Ouran High School Host Club and the latest Kimi ni Todoke. MY favorite is Lovely Complex. Mad funny. The anime is great, too. HAHA!

Those Mangas you've recommended are long volume mangas, right?
I don't know if I'm ready to read long volume shoujo manga yet...unless if I can borrow it ;)
