Okay…shoot me. After months of self debate, I have purchased my copy of 50 Shades of Grey.
What can I say?
Don't tell anyone I am reading this novel.
I am not a romance reader by any stretch, but I could no longer resist the hype surrounding this novel.
40 million copies worldwide?
It started as an E-Book?
Book rights in 37 countries? The fastest-selling paperback of all time?
Surpassing Harry Potter?
Chapter 3 is around the corner. I like the style of the writer; quick, witty, moves the story, and it's clean prose. At least, I believe, she is better than that vampire girl, Stephanie. I suffered horribly through Twilight, but then…I’m not a 14 year old girl.
I have met Mr. Grey and Anastasia Steele seems a doofus, but I picture a pretty lady. I am noticing what seem "romance novel character names", but story trending, arcs, surprises, seem plausible...although there are a lot of blondes.
