Fifty

Fifty Shades of Grey. 


Wow. 
I mean really... wow! I picked up the first book a little over a week ago and finished the entire trilogy in nine days. At first, I was a little apprehensive about the series. Usually a book with a lot of hype is either going to be really good or a bomb. Well let me tell you, this series was no bomb. And I'm already begging for more! Dear E.L. James, I am willing you to write another book and it continue from Christian's perspective. 


I want more Christian Grey! If you haven't read the books or if you're struggling (as I've heard some people are) to get through the third book then trust me... keep reading! The ending chapters of Christian's narrative was more than enough of an incentive to finish the book. Plus I can never just stop reading a book. I always have to finish them. 


Now that I've read the books, I've got my eyes out for all things 50 Shades. I keep looking at entertainment news on the latest gossip on who may play Christian and Anastasia. Also I'm really wondering who will play Elena aka Mrs. Robinson. I'm hoping that Ellen Barkin will get that role...
To me Ellen Barkin is completely Mrs. Robinson. She's got the look down for sure! As for Christian and Anastasia, I have my ideas as to who I could see playing them but I beg for the love of all that's good that Kristen Stewart does not have any role in the movie. I think her acting is horrible and she'll be no match for whoever they get to play Mr. Grey aka Sir.


Have you read the book? Do you love it and if so you do you hope to see in the movie?

I'm one of those people who are still thinking about it! But reading the three books in nine days is pretty telling!

I've heard so many mixed things about the book. Some say it's not written well and is an insult to literature... lol and some say it's so hot you basically wanna keep reading and jump someone's bones lol. I'm on the fence... but your review seems tempting.

I finished the first book but just cannot be bothered with the other 2. The bad writing just kills it for me.

And I hope Kristin Stewart doesn't play Ana for a totally different reason: E.L. James ripped this story off of Twilight. So using Stewart just seems like it would be another rip off.

Still on the fence, but leaning hard to reading it! 9 days is pretty impressive! Just saw the SNL skit- hilarious!!

I haven't read it, and I don't think I will - not because of anything about the book or the hype, but reading has become one of those things that I hardly EVER do anymore :(

I HATED it! LoL First, I was extremely irritated by the blatant copycat writing of Twilight. Second, I could QUICKLY tell the sexual content was going to travel too far from me. I doubt I will even finish the first book.

Hmm I thought I commented earlier but I don't see it. I was still on the fence about this series, but definitely leaning towards reading it. Also, did you see the SNL skit on it? Hilarious!

Have a great week!
