Engrossed in 50 Shades

Hi Prowlers!

Where have I been you ask.... I've been engrossed reading 50 Shades of Grey. Yeah I know, I'm a little late on the bandwagon but one of the guys at work gave me the first book to read (yeah I'm not even going to ask why he bought it haha) and after reading it in light speed, I was onto the second and third.

Okay I'm no literally genius, but the book seems poorly written, corny and predictable. But all that said and done, I totally got hooked in! So easy to read, and I felt compled to find out what happens in the lives of Christan and Ana. Before I started reading I had an impression the book would be kinky as all hell and was really reluctant to read it. But really its a romance - and thats what got me in! I finally finished it on the train this morning, and I couldn't help by smile and slightly awww at the ending (my fellow train travellers must think I'm odd) . Maybe I am a romantic at heart? Who would of thought it! 

Anywho, I hear there is a movie to come out based on the books. This intrigues me as everyone envisages Christan to be their own version of hotness. Which begs the question, Who is your Christan? 

I feel like a need to do like a Oprah's Bookclub debreif on the book haha.. so many questions.... Did you find the books controversial? Did you find them boring? Did you like Christan's character, did you find Christan and Ana's lack of communication a drainer?

Anyway back to the real world for me xxx 


  1. Haha you were a little behind on the band wagon!

    I was over all the sex by the third novel, I actually found it hard to finish it was dragging. But the first one sure did rope me in enough to keep reading the rest :)


    1. Yeah I totally agree - I know I found myself skimming over those parts by the third because it was just happening for the sake of it.

  2. I am awaiting for the releasing of the movie fifty shades.

    1. I know same here! Except the guy they cast isn't what I envisaged!

  3. I had to skim past the sex scenes by the second book, just got repetitive.

    Lots of babies born after the 50 shades boom, nelly included HAHA.

    1. Yeah thats why I think they are so easy to read, you just start skim reading the raunchy stuff.

      thanks for that insight into the making of Nelly lol
