Fifty Shades of Disappointment

It’s not rare that I get all pumped up for something because of its rave reviews. Seems I’m easily influenced, so if someone says it’s great then I’m willing to give it a try. Movies, books, you name it and I’ll probably try it if you tell me it’s worth it (food excluded – I’m an extremely picky eater!).  Fifty Shades of Grey? No different. After hearing so much about it and being an avid Cosmopolitan reader I wanted in on this craze. And in I jumped…

I was intrigued, then I was bored, and then back to somewhat interested, back to bored… well you get the picture. I wanted to love this book, I really did, but it wasn’t all I thought it would be, I even skipped a few pages because they dragged on forever. If that’s not an indication of a bad book I don’t know what is. Now before people get mad, because I know there are a LOT of fans out there, this is clearly just my opinion. Everyone has their own “type” when it comes to books and maybe this wasn’t what I had in mind. I’m a huge Nicholas Sparks fan and recently got into Nora Roberts…Yep I’m a girl who loves her romance. Fifty shades is not so much about romance, it is more raw dirty sex. I knew this before I read it, since basically all news channels called it porn for women, but by the second time they were going at it, I was bored. Didn't they just do that last chapter? Yawn! And I swear I'm not a prude!

I can't say Fifty Shades of Grey was all bad though. The end even intrigued me enough to consider buying the second book but there is still a bit of hesitation. On the other hand everyone deserves a second chance right? If I do decide to buy it, I’ll let you know how it goes.

Anyways enough about my thoughts, what’s your verdict?
