5 – If you don’t have a blog to post, just leave your list in the comments =)






This week’s theme is Favorite Guilty Pleasures! 


I have quite a few guilty pleasures, but I'll try to narrow it down to 5, starting with my book-related guilty pleasure.

1. I've been told that being in my late 30's I should have long since been too old for Harry Potter. Nonsense! I absolutely adore this series, especially the audiobooks read by Stephen Fry and I regularly re-read or listen to them.


2. Gossip Girl is definitely one of those shows that I know I shouldn't enjoy as much as I do. But I have watched every single episode of every single season and I still absolutely love Blair and Chuck

3. America's Next Top Model, another show that I have watched faithfully from the very beginning. Its absurd that I enjoy it so much being that, as a work-at-home mom, I live most of my life in pajamas and can't think of a time in the last decade that I picked up a fashion magazine. 

4. Audiobooks....some may say that I'm a lazy reader, but I can't think of one thing more relaxing than having someone read to me. Listening to audiobooks is a recent addiction for me, I always loved the feel of a book in my hands but lately, most of what I read is in audio format unless its a new book that I simply must have that isn't in audio format yet, or an old book that has never been in audio. Audible.com is where I spend most of my "book" money lol.


5. Eating dark chocolate in the middle of the night. Sometimes I wake up from a dead sleep craving dark chocolate so bad that its my only coherent thought. No idea what this is about.... but I always keep some close by anyway. 


So thats my 5 guilty pleasures. What are yours?

Hi there! What a good post. I think I'll join in as well.

I also wanted to thank you for joining Book Blogger's Unite. I'd love it if you felt like promoting the group a bit on your blog, but if not I completely understand.

Thanks again :D

You have some great guilty pleasures there. Chocolate is also one of my guilty pleasures but I don't eat it in the middle of the night. :) I am a heavy sleeper. Nothing wakes me up.
