Then those books must be old or Spanish. Spanish books, for some reason, use em dashes for dialogue. But you should acknowledge that in modern literature, quotations marks are used instead of dashes. Like I said before, if you have no real reason to use dashes other than that's what you're used to, then use quotation marks.
And no, that's not just fan fictions. Read something like
The Grapes of Wrath
To Kill a Mockingbird
, both illustrating quotation marks used. I was simply proposing an experiment of some sort. Might I ask what books you looked in?
