• Question: Do you ever crave reading crappy books? {source}

Sometimes I need a lighthearted, romantic comedy book. Sometimes I need a cozy mystery. Not every book can be Crime & Punishment! And sometimes the crappy books are the popular books and I want to know what everyone's fussing about (like Fifty Shades of Grey or the Twilight series).

But I don't necessarily think ChickLit or cozy mysteries are crappy, most of what I read is well-written and has clever plots and charming characters.

That's a huge misconception among people and something which cannot be helped. I also don't believe these books are crappy.

I think it is important to enjoy a variety of books...and we need to mix them up. If I only read the dark, deep books, I would be soooo depressed. LOL

I love reading a variety of books and as you imply not everything you read has to be worthy. I read for enjoyment and relaxation so that's what I look for when choosing my reads.

Yeah I don't believe those books are crappy, but I agree that sometimes I just need a more lighthearted read.
