As all of you know, I’ve started reading the “Fifty Shades” trilogy and today I finished the first book. My reaction: Oh boy…
Addiction may not be a strong enough word to describe how hooked I am to this story, hence the lack of updates on my blog. But there’s also a positive aspect to consider. All these juicy scenes have fired up my imagination and I’ve invested it all into my novel.
I am tempted to post the prologue on here, so my question is this: Would you read it and give me an honest feedback?
Well, anyways, returning to the subject at hand, I’ve posted, as you can well see, a picture of what I imagine Christian Grey looks like. For those of you who don’t know who the guy in the picture above is, you can watch him play a delicious reformed art thief in the TV series White Collar. His name: Matthew Bomer. Now be prepared if you google image him, the pictures are not suited for the fainthearted.
I also find that these books distract me from my bad eating habits. Hmmm…could it be that I have found the secret? I tend to snack on chocolate whenever I’m bored, which I’m sure all of you go through one moment or the other, but since I can’t take my eyes off my Kindle, I hardly think about chocolate. I’m shedding the pounds as I write this. Cool, right?
So thank you Christian Grey and thank you E L James for introducing him into our lives.
Hmmm…I don’t know about you, but after a long day at uni or studying, I like to do something every evening to disconnect myself from all the daily stress. It helps me sleep better at night and allows me to take care of myself.
One such typical evening for me always involves some reading. It’s my way to imagine myself in a world far away from mine, where I can leave all my troubles behind. Two hours of that accompanied by a cup of hot chocolate with tiny bits of marshmallows in it is pure heaven!
Haven’t tasted hot chocolate with marshmallows yet? You don’t know what you’re missing. I recently discovered it at a store called Karstadt, here in Germany, where you can buy it for 6 euros. You can also get it on Amazon: Swiss Miss Hot Cocoa Mix, Milk Chocolate with Marshmallows – loooove it!
But that’s not all! While doing all this, I love wearing some really funky PJs. Mine are from Hunkemöller and you can buy them for 20 euros from their website: Hunkemöller PJs – I’m not sure if they deliver outside of Germany, but they’re really cool and pleasant to wear. For international readers, there’s always H&M, which I also love. Here’s a cool PJ for $12.95. I recommend Victoria’s Secret if you’re looking for something a little more sexy: VS Logo Lace Halter Babydoll, which is a bit more expensive at $29.50.
So how do you like to spend your evenings? Any tips?
