The Christian Grey Addiction…And The Benefits

Image

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. 

Laters, baby. x

Jumping On The “Fifty Shades” Train

I’ve heard so many things about this series, that I just had to grab myself a copy of the first book. I’ve only read the first two chapters till now, but it already has me giggling with every new line. The writing is not as good as I expected it, but it makes up with the story. I have to warn you though, the sexual content is pretty high, so if you’re under 18, keep your hands and eyes away from this.

Well, I’ll keep on reading cause I’m really interested to see how this story develops, but my mum, who’s started reading the series a few days ago, says it’s very entertaining. Hmmm. Anyways here’s the story description:

When literature student Anastasia Steele goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating. The unworldly, innocent Ana is startled to realize she wants this man and, despite his enigmatic reserve, finds she is desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her, too—but on his own terms.

Shocked yet thrilled by Grey’s singular erotic tastes, Ana hesitates. For all the trappings of success—his multinational businesses, his vast wealth, his loving family—Grey is a man tormented by demons and consumed by the need to control. When the couple embarks on a daring, passionately physical affair, Ana discovers Christian Grey’s secrets and explores her own dark desires.

Erotic, amusing, and deeply moving, the Fifty Shades Trilogy is a tale that will obsess you, possess you, and stay with you forever.

Sounds yummy, right? Well I’m off to read some more and I’ll update you along the way.
