Fifty Shades of Grey

One of my friends recommended this book to me. She let me know that multiple people hada suggested it to her so I felt pretty confident that I would enjoy it. 

A few days later, I saw them talking about it on Chelsea Lately and even saw it on E! News. I knew that I had to give it a shot. Lucky for me, it was my turn to pick our next book club book. 
Well I started last night and, let's just say, I'm officially hooked. I'm only 33% complete and already this book has a hold on me. Unlike most books, the beginning doesn't drag and you immediately feel connected with the characters. I'm wishing I didn't have to work today, I'm wishing I didn't have lunch plans with a friend, I'm wishing I had anytime at all to sneak in even a few more pages. It's extremely intense and definitely not the type of details I typically like to read, but there is something about it that captivates you. Actually, I suppose it is similar to being in the presence of Christian Grey. Thankfully, it's a trilogy so I get to read a few more books before having to say goodbye to Ana and Christian, at least I hope so. 

If you're looking for a great book, I would suggest Fifty Shades of Grey. It's extremely graphic so I would read the synopsis before diving in. it's one of those books that you can't put down and that's always a good sign.

That is all for now :)


  1. Great Book Series. We read the first one for our April book club and the second for our may book club. I read all 3 in a week lol!

  2. It's on my list of books to buy!

  3. I have heard nothing but great things about this book. I almost puchased it this past weekend, but didn't! I will definitely have to read this.
