Books that Make you Blush
Have you ever read a book that you couldn’t take out in public?
I have to say I am a huge closet Erotica reader, not so much now that I am a blogger, because well I like to tell people I have a book blog, and what do you know I leave reviews when I read books that are for Adults. One thing that I will give Fifty Shades of Grey is it is now “cool” or acceptable to read Erotica.
The first ever Erotica novel I read was The Beauty Series by Anne Rice, I remember feeling so naughty and guilty reading it (I was 15 at the time). I was also the nerd at school that people would tell dirty jokes to and I would still be puzzling over it hours later to work out what they meant. For anyone who has read the Beauty Series would know that it is a real eye opener.
Men can sleep with who they want and be a hero, women who sleep with who they want are a slut . But in books and In private we can take the protagonist and call her a hero, that she can be free and wild without any repercussions.
Feminists may say that we are losing what hold we have on female rights, by reading erotic literature but really we are liberating women, and I believe that we are also seeing this in the popularity of the New Adult Genre as well.
I love reading Erotica but have been putting them off since starting my blog because I didn’t feel that it was appropriate to leave reviews on my blog of books that people under the age of 18 may be interested in reading so to combat this I have started a new blog where I will review my Erotic novels. You can find it here at Guilty Pleasures, from down under.
