Fifty Shades of Red

I have been reading as a hobby ever since I can remember and although English is not my native tongue, I always preferred English literature. But you should know, I do not read anything other than fiction. I never read the news paper mostly because it's extremely depressing and boring. Incredibly ignorant of me, I know, but I just can't stand it. I'd rather read a book where it starts with once upon a time and ends with  happily ever after any day. Also, of all the books I own, except for only a few, all are romantic comedies. I love those novels. Two of my most favorite authors of this genre are Jill Mansell and Sophie Kinsella

Oh, wait! I do like other genres. Sidney Sheldon's novels are by far, the best I have ever read. I have read all eighteen of his novels and his autobiography. His novels range from adventure romance to thrillers and crime. I loved all of them and own like nine. Also, I have read a few novels by Dan BrownRobin Cook, and Danielle Steel.

Enough about my hobby. What I really wanted to write about is the latest series of novels I read...the Fifty Shades series by E L James :D For a while, I just read about the books in the gossip columns, but I never knew what it was about. Apparently they were a big deal and everybody had a copy and it was a must read and stuff. So yeah, obviously I got a bit curious. But later I started seeing the series being referred to as mommy porn, which is when I decided to completely stay away from them. Because, mommy porn? Ugh! Right?

But then my best friend showed up in mid August and started raving about it. She told me that they were so good and that I just had to read it. By this time, I also read that the series was going to be turned into movies and that they were considering people like Matt Bomer, Ian Somerhalder and Chris Hemsworth as Christian Grey. So I had to read it! Naturally.

So my best friend sent me the ebooks. I was going to wait until semester break to read them but one night I decided to take a peek just to see what all the fuss is about, you know. And then I read the whole book in one night! Within the week that followed, I finished all three. I gotta tell you...whoever is saying they are bad is wrong. It's not just mommy porn. I think it's for everyone...of legal age.

Is it Erotic? Yes. A bit of Soft Porn? Yes. But it's really really good. I love the way it was written...and Christian Grey...SWOON! (blush). I mean really. You might not meet a guy that hot in real life. He's so gorgeous and naughty that it'll make you turn fifty shades of red when you're reading it ;) 

If anyone is interested, I have the ebooks and I'll gladly send it to you girls :) It'll make any woman go weak in the knees. E L James did a good job and I cannot wait for the movies.
