Fifty Shades of What??

Unless you've completely avoided any kind of media in the last several months, you've heard of the novel that has brought BDSM into the mainstream, Fifty Shades of Grey by E. L. James. I had the pleasure (or is it the pain?) of reading this erotic romance over the last couple of weeks. The only reason it took me so long to read it was due to my horrific schedule lately.

E.L. James has created the ultimate fan fiction masterpiece. Fifty Shades of Grey is interestly written and immerses you in a world you may not have even known existed. I particularly enjoyed two things about the book, chapter 8 and the emails between Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey. Make sure you pay attention to Christian's signatures at the bottom of each of his emails.

After finishing the novel I asked myself if I would date Christian Grey. No. Here's why. I have a medical condition, undefined connective tissue disease, that causes chronic pain. Every moment of every day I struggle. Being involved with a man who 'needs' to physically hurt me doesn't do it for me. At all. People within the BDSM community may say it's a pleasurable pain. In my opinion there is no such thing. My wish is to have a day when I don't have any type of pain.

I highly recommend Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L. James. Once you read the first book you'll want to read the rest immediately. The trilogy is a fascinating read. If you're up for a little kinky fuckery and not easily offended, these are the books for you.

Buy the trilogy!!

Laters baby,


  1. I have also fallen into the hoopla and reading the book! Have not finished it yet though.

  2. I'm sad I'm done with all three.

  3. I have been trying to get it from the library... I was on hold and then it dissapeared from my list ?/ WTF I am looking forward to reading it , just to hear what the hype is about. I must say though, you are the first to say it is well written. The people that I have talked have read it online or via someones reader and say it is horrible writting, but they were unable to put it down. I cant wait to read it and form my own opinion.

  4. I think you'll enjoy the books. When I say well written I'm not holding it to super high standards. It's written like someone telling you a really good story.

  5. As soon as I read it.. I will share my opinion. I can't wait!

    1. Have you been able to read the books yet? :)

  6. I read a lot, but I must admit that I've never heard of this novel. I've always said that I'd try ALMOST anything once, but the BDSM thing is something I think I'd always stay away from.

    Still..........I do like the mask on the cover..........

  7. The books are quite naughty, but geared towards women.

    BDSM is not for everyone. I'm all about pleasure ;).
