I lost a few days again...
What happened? 50 Shades of Grey is what happened!
I am not the Danielle Steele type, I prefer Nelson DeMille or Stephen King, maybe a little Anne Rule, and Sookie Stackhouse, but with all the hoopla about this book I had to read it. I mean not every books gets banned from libraries, compared to Twilight, and Cinderella, and is called Mommy porn.
This is what EL James' website has to say - When literature student Anastasia Steele goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating. The unworldly, innocent Ana is startled to realize she wants this man and, despite his enigmatic reserve, finds she is desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her, too—but on his own terms.
Shocked yet thrilled by Grey’s singular erotic tastes, Ana hesitates. For all the trappings of success—his multinational businesses, his vast wealth, his loving family—Grey is a man tormented by demons and consumed by the need to control. When the couple embarks on a daring, passionately physical affair, Ana discovers Christian Grey’s secrets and explores her own dark desires. you can check it out here
I don't want to give anything away - but I will say, if you are the sort of person who likes to go to the movies, and will sit through a bad one or two because your best friend loves it, then I highly recommend 50 Shades of Grey. If not, you could turn it into a drinking game... take a shot for each time the author uses "wicked grin", "flushed crimson", "panties", "inner goddess" or when Christian calls Ana "baby" - you could be flat out drunk by Chapter 4!
Laters baby, now back to reading A Storm of Swords and Insurgent.
