I don't believe in guilty pleasures, I believe you should be able to like what you like ~ Dave Grohl
Bookshops are selling out of it. Comedians are lampooning it. It even made it on to our national news.
Everyone seems to be talking about Fifty Shades of Grey.
I'm a wee bit hesitant to wade into the Fifty Shades frenzy but it's such a cultural phenomenon that it's pretty hard to ignore. AND I'm dying to know what you lovely readers think...
Now I'm no book snob, I mean, what's not to love about fun trashy quick reads, right ladies? I'll happily own up to being one of the legions of Twilight, Sookie Stackhouse, and Jamie Fraser fans but with Fifty Shades....me not so likey. I don't even know if I enjoyed reading the books. Not because I was put off by the smexy factor (although some of it was cringe) but it was more that books just weren't that great a read. They weren't terribly romantic at all: Christian was a bully, Ana, a push-over, there wasn't a heck of a lot of plot, and the whole thing just dragged ooooooon. Anyhoo, have you dipped into the Fifty Shades books? What did you think? Am I being too harsh?
On a semi related note, this recipe for Chocolate Bourbon Pecan Tarts is so adaptable, I like to think of it as Fifty Shades of Pecan Pie: dark, sinful, and easy to whip up.
