Trigger Warning This review contains strong themes, to include rape Before I begin what will likely become a very long rant public service announcement, let me first say a few words I have nothing against E.L James Nothing She s said that this series is a fantasy she managed to put on paper and that she never expected it to gain such momentum Good for her for perusing her dream of writing If this book also fulfills one of your fantasies, or if you just plain enjoyed it, good for you too This rev [...]
You know, I was beginning to wonder if I needed to change some of my two star books to one star I was thinking that I might not ever personally read a book worthy of one star, and I was messing up my scale by giving some of the lame books I ve read lately two stars instead of one.Thank you E.L James, for proving to me there was something worth waiting for Something that truly exemplifies the meaning of terrible.Now hold up, all you would be defenders I read this whole thing I did not skip anyth [...]
What in the hell just happened Did I really read that Oh, my god, I did I did read that Meet Anastasia Steele Ana is just a giant mess of a human being She s insecure to the point of it being laughable, klutzy even though she only trips twice in the entire book , and a complete ditz She s a virgin of course who s never taken any sexual interest in anyone before Right I m fairly certain there hasn t been a woman this naive since round about 1954 At one point, she thinks putting her hair in pigtai [...]
Introducing an even abusive and disturbing TWILIGHT Now with whips and chains Fifty Shades of ShitHaters, please exit stage left.I m not sure what possessed me to pick up Fifty Shades of Grey I thought I might genuinely like it before I started, but all I was left with was one hell of a mindfuck Whatever it was that brought on this knee jerk purchase seems to have mercifully left me with enough common sense to say I will not be continuing on with this series.Recently I discovered one of my favo [...]
In the words of Miss Steele, You need to sort your shit out, Grey Good day, sir Fifty Shades of Grey, like Fifty shades of fucked up nonsense rolls eyes I should get a medal for just finishing this tripe I honestly do NOT feel like revisiting this book and writing a review I d rather spend the time searching for ways to remove this utter nonsense from my memory However, this book is so bad that I feel the need to warn others from this drivel Luckily, I did not buy this garbage I do not even kno [...]
Garbage Absolutely horrifying, utter trash A waste of trees, bookshelf space and precious, oh so very fucking precious braincells Honestly, why is this even published Every single book store in Sydney is promoting this tripe, claiming it to be some kind of awesome romance novel Are you absolutely shitting me There is nothing romantic at all about this book And I don t mean the BDSM erotica themes, I mean the fifty levels of abuse in this friggin thing In fact, that s what this book should be cal [...]
Head s up If any of you fuckers comment at the bottom of this review and say, You don t understand BDSM I will hunt you down and make you eat your computer, plus the mouse, plus the keyboard, plus any other internet connected devices in your home, including but not limited to iPhones, iPods, iPads, Androids, games consoles and ereaders This book is not an accurate or healthy portrayal of a real BDSM relationship between two consensual and enthusiastic parties Thus, by defending it as such, you a [...]
0 stars DNF 55% Review edited February 12, 2015 Sex is than an act of pleasure, it s the ability to be able to feel so close to a person, so connected, so comfortable that it s almost breathtaking to the point you feel you can t take it And at this moment you re a part of them Author unknown I ve had a rather long list of issues when I decided to abandon ship FSoShit is garbage and if I had read a paperback I would have burned the fucking offending thing It s a total mystery to me why this book [...]
I didn t want to start this book Many people are praising it but I m simply not into erotica, it s too cheap for me But here I am in the mind of the innocent waiting to be devoured by the big bad wolf Sounds pornographic, doesn t it That s because it is Christian Grey A hot dude that melts a woman s panties off with just one look The perfect sex toy set out to conquer an innocent girl Grey the sick f ck is considered one of the hottest characters out there but he doesn t get to me His dominance [...]

Really blah, blah On on No purpose, no plot, meandering for meandering s sake I didn t finish it because, quite frankly, the heroine got on my last fucking nerve The writing style is atrocious and I can t fathom how or why so many people love this tiny slice of interweb fan fiction garbage.
Rating negative sixty septillion starsIt s National Book Lovers Day A day to bask in the amazing power of books to inform, amuse, educate, and alter our views and viewpoints.
I read this book back before E.L James even wrote it I don t brag about a lot of things, but my review skills are one of the few things I will brag about.E.L James read my review on this book and she loved it SO much, she decided to go ahead and write the book Here is a word for word copy of our email exchange from that day E.L James Hello, Colleen Hoover I saw your book review on Fifty Shades of Grey and I loved it so much, I decided I would write the book I m already finished writing chapter t [...]
Okay I realized by people s comments that I never said exactly what I thought about this book Well, I loved it I ve now read it four times Christian Grey ranks right up there with Travis Maddox in my book boyfriend world This series is addicting When I need a good read this is my go to series I didn t know what to think about this because I wasn t sure how I felt about BDSM but this is sooooo much than that One of the BEST love stories I ve read to date.
OOOOHHH the movie opens TODAY now, i m not likely to ever see the movie, but i will say it s pretty ballsy to cast the romantic lead a character who ties up ladies for erotic enjoyment with the actor that many people only know as the character who ties up ladies for erotic enjoyment and then kills them now hear me out, people i liked it, but i didn t like it like it the writing is shitty, it is, but i am a sucker for enthusiasm and you can tell she has it at the reading of hers i worked, she did [...]
I only bought this on Kindle because I was curious to see whether a professional edit made it any better than the original fanfic which I abandoned once I realized the plot wasn t original enough for me to suffer through the cut rate writing Paging through this published version makes me embarrassed for the author than I was when it was in the fanfic domain, and it DEFINITELY made me lose respect for The Writer s Coffee Shop.Most distracting is the schizophrenic voice of the main character, Ana [...]
I have finally made a decision about Fifty Shades of Grey I know, I know, my review of this isn t really needed, everybody s talking about this book, everybody s got the general gist of what it s about But I ve spent quite a long time thinking about this novel, the characters, and the relationship portrayed I ve been thinking about all the reasons people hate this so much and love it so much I need to confess for those who missed it that I originally reviewed this first book immediately after fi [...]
Post Script on May 8, 2012This book has exploded since I first read it and it seems to be one that is either loved or hated I m actually very thankful that I read it before any of my GR friends or anyone I knew, because I feel like if I read it now, after hearing all the hype, it would probably disappoint.People have very strong reactions to Fifty Shades and just to put in my two cents you read different books for different reasons In my opinion Was this book a great piece of literature No Were [...]
I feel like there is a deeper meaning behind Fifty Shades of Grey then just BDSM and sex but the huge downfall of this book was the writing I can see both sides of the fifty shades argument There are points in the book where I can see abuse but there are also points where there is none I just hate the fact that if people enjoy this book they are labeled as pro rape advocates or pro abuse STOP IT Stop trying to belittle others, everyone is entitled to their own opinion You may not agree but don t [...]
ONE HUNDRED BILLION NEGATIVE STARSWell, I think it s safe to say that I m buying myself a chastity belt and am joining a nunnery This book has put me off sex for ever and ever.I know I said I was never going to touch this with a ten foot pole, but then this happened Basically, my co blogger dared me to read the books after a joke about the author, or I was never allowed to diss the books again the joke wasn t worth it.This piece of shit, this sorry excuse for a book is without a doubt the worst [...]
Bad Book Is Like Other Bad Book ShockAt a standing room only press conference earlier today, top researchers from the world famous Center for Bodice Ripping, Bondage and Twilight Studies revealed that a bad book was quite a lot like another bad book When I saw the final results of the data analysis, a cold shiver went down my spine, said the Center s director The chain of inference is long, and at first we weren t sure all the steps were watertight, but now we re confident enough to go public Ex [...]
Let me start by saying Wow Just Wow This book is 5 stars for me It is my favorite kind of story You know what I meanjust so intense that the characters get so far under your skin that you can t stand to be away from them for any length of time Well, that was me while reading this book, I couldn t concentrate to get anything done There are a lot of reviews on this book, and obviously the majority love it, so I am simply going to explain some of the reasons that this story grabbed hold of my heart [...]
Huh Let s see how bad this book really is reads some quotes from others statuses This book is trash and I don t even want to finish the damn thing The excerpts are enough I will not be under the influence of this devilry Not even for the snark Not even to make fun of it Not even And after seeing this And that has got to be the LEAST disgusting creepy nonsensical thing that slime bag has said THE LEAST No effing way I m only seventeen going on eighteen I have a future to look forward to And I nee [...]
2.5 stars.I don t think I ve ever read a book that s left me quite as bemused as this one has The writing left a lot to be desired, the heroine didn t impress me at all and yet I find myself wanting to read the next in the series After having a day to let this sink in I have to try and put my feelings succinctly into a review How do I say this exactly Anastasia damn near killed me There were just too many things about her that turned me off bigtime I can understand how her vulnerability could ma [...]

The first time I tried to read Fifty Shades of Grey, I almost threw the book out of the window I read the first 10 chapters and gave up I have a really hard time DNFing a book I m always curious to find out how things will end, even though I have an inkling about how things will go I can t claim to have great taste I was one of those crazy Twilight obsessed teenagers Yeah So I said to myself, Okay, I ll try give it one shot Time spent reading is never wasted Maybe I was wrong, maybe the book is [...]
This was like reading a jackhammer.This was like if Hannah Montana tried to write an erotica novel.The popularity of this book makes me need to move to a different planet I am making the assumption that it comes from people not actually liking to read, but liking to have their self destructive cultural values reinforced Girls don t like to eat If you do whatever he says, he ll turn into a handsome prince It s not his fault he s abusing you, it s only because mommy was mean To have good sex, a gi [...]
