I'm reading the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy right now. The author's writing style kinda sucks, in my opinion, and though there's lots of sex in every chapter, there's also a definite plot, and lots of romance and love, too. The characters are interesting, and I love the books. They're very weird and kind of alarming at first, but once you're mid-way through the first book, your views on the whole trilogy change. Mine did, anyway.
My co-worker had her nose in the Fifty Shades of Grey book during grad class today. It makes me want to read it because yet another person I know is reading the book. I want to see what all the fuss is about.
My mum hunted them down because she read the first few chapters a friend's copy so I started the first one last night and finished it this morning. The writing is pretty awful and makes me laugh. I was pointing out to Jen all of the blatantly obvious Twilight links. I don't understand why the author feels the need to drop in loads of big words, it just seems really out of place. Also I wish she'd just made the characters British because that's clearly what they are, even as a Brit myself I can't help pick up on some words that Americans just don't use. Saying that I really couldn't put it down and I'm looking forward to reading the next one, haha!
That is berry berry exciting! I need to try to join in...
I didn't read anything but required material during the school year, so I've been catching up on my teen supernatural romance fix. I'm reading hush, hush right now, last week I finished Dormia and Beautiful Creatures at the beach ;D
I would be way too embarrassed to pick up 50 Shades of Gray in a bookstore or a library Plus my family always comes over to ask me what I'm reading. But it does interest me... this is what I would use a Kindle for if I had one.
My grandma gave me two new books today one I think Kazzie might like; The Kommandant's Girl by Pam Jenoff and the other is some crime thriller which I'm not sure about called The Mushroom Man by Stuart Pawson.
