Trending: Fifty Shades of Grey

Fifty Shades Reading AdventuresTapping Into My Inner Goddess:

Well I’ve officially succumb to the trend of reading the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy.  I know I’m jumping on the bandwagon a bit late, but with all the commercials airing of the Fifty Shades of Grey movie trailer more and more frequently as we approach the Valentine’s Day release date, I have to admit I became intrigued.

I finally borrowed the trilogy over the holiday break and thus began my obsession for this past month of January.  I’ll be the first to agree that there was a serious lack of writing care taken (where were the editors?), and I know I’m not perfect (you’ll probably find tons of grammar mistakes throughout this blog!), but I had to re-read a couple of sentences to realize they were missing a word here or there.


None-the-less I kept reading and just wrapped up the trilogy earlier today. I would say it was definitely as hot as everyone says, and now I’m super excited about seeing the movie next month.  Who’s ready to plan a girls night out?


So now I’m looking for my next read…. I’ve heard the Up In the Air series by R.K. Lilley is similar to Fifty Shades of Grey, but with much better writing.  So if I end up going that route, I’ll definitely let you know how it goes.


But seriously, I was so addicted to getting through this trilogy (such a quick and easy read) that I’m ready to tackle my next obsession…. so please leave me your suggestions below! 😉

Laters, Baby!


  1. I have to say, reading the books, I was appalled at the poor writing. Not only were there errors, but the style was just… bad. Despite this, I couldn’t help but finish the trilogy. I am disappointed with the cast, though.

    1. I know – I can’t believe how addicted I was to finish the trilogy despite the poor writing! I think it helped that I did not start reading the books until the movie was cast so I could imagine the characters they chose in reading the book… but I’m a huge fan of Charlie Hunnam and would have LOVED to see him has Christian Grey 😉
