I finally had to find out what all the hype is about. Come on, the old Mills & Boon concept has been around for yonks. What is all the fuss?
A poor friend phoned from her sick bed asking to bring her a good book. This was my chance to buy not one, but all three of the books! I thought it was a great joke and would crack her up, plus I’d get to read them afterwards. Little did I know another friend had already lent them to her!
So on a girls weekend away where it rained most of the time I was tucked up in bed getting to know Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele. I’m up to page 50 now and of course I love those romantic English classics; the Brontë sisters, Thomas Hardy, Jane Austen – which were quite scandalous in their time, but true love always wins over. But so far it’s just an intriguingly cute little girl meets boy crush… turns to… who knows what?? I don’t yet. But even my friends 15 year old daughter seemed to know it was about some sexually deviant scenario!
I just googled it and found this article which gives me more of an idea and I’m not sure I want to read on… I like to think of myself as a bit of a women’s libber.
But I did get VERY excited about the fact it’s being turned into a movie with Vampire Diaries Ian Somerhalder being auditioned…
Have you read them yet????
Anyway, I’m home now and knackered and my gorgeous man told me to have an early night, I should crawl into bed now and keep warm. Little does he know, he’s sending me to bed with another man… hahahaaaha
