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?

  1. Mummy porn didn't do it for me either!
    I wanted to yell ( in shouty capitals) ANA GO AND GET A LiFE HE AIN'T WORTH IT!!!!!
    On the bright side it's encouraging women to read rather than watching stupid reality TV!


I love reading your comments.... thanks!
