50 Shades Over It!
Yes, I have been sucked in by the hype of 50 Shades of Grey. The peer pressure got to me eventually, and I had to read it to see what all the fuss was about.
And I hate to admit it, but it has sucked me in.
I need to know what happens......
God I am sooooo over reading about these two having sex every two minutes. Seriously. Yes I get it. They are "into" each other. But really??? Does anyone do "it" THAT often?? I was warned that it was "mummy porn" and that it is.
But I have resorted to skimming these bits to get to the story.
The story of a damaged and tortured soul coming back to the light.
Or so it is meant to be. Poor Christian.
Would you let any man dictate to you, in a supposed adult, consensual, loving relationship what you can wear, who you can see and how many times a week you should work out. Even if he was a billionaire? Seriously Ana, grow up!
Also, I like to read to escape (and yes, I know and can close the book and not open it again, but can you turn off a movie and not find out what happens?). More fool me. Trouble is, this book invades your brain, and not in a jump into bed way, in a GET OUT OF MY HEAD way (yes SHOUTY capitals!).
So the question is with two books down, to I finish the story and see what happens? Or do I put it to bed (no pun intended) and step away from this world I find slightly repulsive.
I haven't decided yet. Will let you know.
What would you do?
