Shame, Shame: An Intro to Guilty Pleasure Reads

In this first episode of BBE Shorts, Jennifer spends some time musing over what “guilty pleasure reads” means to her, and even reveals some of her favs to fall back on when she’s feeling down. She also explores what our listeners think of as guilty pleasure reads and hints at future episodes that dig more into why we feel guilty about reading certain things rather than others.

Some of Jennifer’s fav guilty pleasure reads:

  • Any Jane Austen books
  • Mr. Darcy’s Diary
  • Captain Wentworth’s Diary
  • Anything by Eva Ibbotson
  • Crown Duel by Sherwood Smith
  • Radiance by Grace Draven and company
  • Winternight Trilogy by Elizabeth Arden
  • Then honestly probably some of my fav webtoons that I read and re-read over again, which I am already planning on mentioning those more in a later episode.
  • Interested in any of these books? Some of them are available on our Bookshop store!
