Yesterday my husband went to Barnes and Noble on his lunch break. As he was there he saw a cart filled up high with books waiting to be put out. Well, of course he went over to see what they were, and what did he find? Two titles: Fifty Shades of Grey, and Fifty Shades Darker.
Richie’s question to me was: “Do you think everyone has gotten a bit obsessed?”
My answer: Have you heard there in going to be a movie? And why don’t you read it and find out.

I read Fifty Shades of Grey a few weeks ago and really liked it. In fact right after reading Fifty Shades of Grey I bought the rest of the series and read it all in just a few days. Yes, I know I am late in all the hype. What actually got me to reading the books by EL James were negative reviews on Goodreads. One even saying that there is something wrong with people who liked Fifty Shades of Grey…Well, once I read that I had to read it right?!?!
For those of you who have not read this series, here are some questions you may have:
What kept you from reading this to start with?
I all honesty, the cover. Yep, I’m a cover snob and the tie just did not catch me… Now after reading FSoG I know that THAT tie is the perfect cover.
Is there really a graphic BDSM relationship between the main characters?
Yes, that is one of the reasons going into this series I was worried. But, there is an actual storyline in the book and having read romance, and paranormal romance a lot in the past I am no book prude. I said a few weeks ago when I read this it may not be for everyone because it is graphic. For me, this was a very readable story. I cared enough about the characters to have to know what was going to happen to them from one book to the next.
Did you know that this was originally a fanfiction?
Yes, I did know that going into it. No, I did not feel like I was reading about Edward and Bella.
My questions to you:
Have you jumped on the bandwagon? Have you read this series?
Are you OK with sex in books? or do you avoid those books like the plague?
Everyone from Ellen to the ladies from The View are talking about this book. Did you know Fifty Shades of Grey is going to be a movie?
How on earth do you think they will go about making the Fifty Shades of Grey movie?
What do you think it will end up being rated?
Who would you want in the roles?!?!
I’m excited to here back from you on this one:)
