{ 31 days of books - fifty shades of grey }



Fifty Shades of Grey Trilogy 




I don't think that I've ever read a book that has been so popular but that so many people have opinions on that couldn't be more different.  It's either you hate it or you don't.  I answered several questions about Fifty Shades in my review posts for Bloggy Book Club here so you'll know that I am on the liked it side.  To a point I guess, it wasn't the best written book I've ever read, nor was it the worst.

The phenomenon of Fifty Shades has spawned parodies, hotel packages, makeup, jewelry and yeah, toys.  And the movie.  Oh my wow the movie.  Do you have any opinions on the cast?  Everyone else does.  I found this e-card and thought it was hilarious.




I do think that this book crossed boundaries like no others and most likely opened doors for others.  It's not quite as taboo as it used to be and maybe it's a fluke and the novelty will wear off fairly soon.

But I firmly believe that "Laters, baby." will be around a lot longer.  The first time I ever heard a guy say that out loud and in person I honestly admit to laughing so hard I almost cried.

  1. I read book one because everyone was going crazy about it and i think I read most of it with my mouth wide open and a lot of "omg" remarks! haha Part of me wants to read the other 2, but on the other hand I just don't.

    Yeh that movie is going to be interesting...

  2. I haven't read them , I don't think I will bother unless I got it from the library. I find that there are a bunch of free romance+ books from iBooks that probably have similar style.
