    50 Shades of Grey.

    Who's read it yet?! I think I'm going to finish it tonight and it's my second day reading it haha. I'm really liking it so far.

    Opinions?

    I kind of want to read it because I want to see what the hype is all about but I saw it on my mom's kindle... all 3 of them.. and I was very disturbed by that.
    Alexithymia is a term coined by Peter Sifneos in 1973 to describe a state of deficiency in understanding, processing, or describing emotions. It's pronounced uh-lecks-uh-thigh-me-uh.

    I'm reading them to see what the hype's all about. I'm in the middle of the second one. I find myself skipping over all of the juicy scenes because there are just too damn many, & I'm trying to find the storyline amidst all the ****ing. It's moderately better in the second, as in sometimes they finish their entire meal before sleeping together for the third time in 20 minutes, so.

    Omg I'm dying to read it, smut is my genre.
    When people purchase that book from me at the checkout they always look embarrassed until I say, "I want to read that!" And then their faces bright up and we have a huge convo about how awesome it sounds, lol. I've had these convos with women anywhere from 20-60 years old. It's amazing, the power of smut. hahaha.

    On the one hand, I'm glad smut/erotica is becoming more socially acceptable. On the other hand, I hate that it has to be a book that can be seen as degrading so easily. I've read smut that is much more celebratory of the female body, and I'd rather that hit the NYT best sellers list.

    EDIT: Also, it was originally a Twilight fanfic. I'm pointing it out because I know how much some of you hate Twilight/Bella.

    It was on my to-read list just because I keep hearing it around, but last night my sister told me that it's a smut fic, and now I just have zero interest in it. That's really interesting that it was originally a Twilight fanfic. So not surprising.

    Lol seriously? Just another reason to never go near it.

    I started reading it not really knowing what it was about. I didn't get very far. I was pretty disturbed by the lead male character, and the sex is just so unrealistic. Plus there's really not much of a plot. It's kind of sad that it's a best seller when there are so many better authors out there who don't get any recognition. But I guess this is what our society wants to read now...porn. They actually had it in a sex store I went in with my bf lol.

    Here I go, scream my lungs out and try to get to you
    You are my only one
    I'd let go, but there's just no one, no one like you
    You are my only, my only one

    I'm breathing in your skin tonight, quiet is my loudest cry. I would not want to wake the eyes that make me melt inside. And if it's healthier to let you be, may a sickness come and set me free. Kill me while I still believe that you were meant for me.

    I literally just recoiled from my computer...Who the eff thinks that's slightly sexy? I've read the plot summary on wikipedia and honestly it just sounds awful...Both from the "that's stereotypically degrading" standpoint and "that's stereotypically unoriginal and badly written" stand point.

    I knew if I came here someone would have a post about it! lol. At first I LOVED it, but then when we found out she was a virgin, the book went a tad down hill. When I first heard about the book there were a lot negative reviews on Amazon but months later a really good friend suggested so I bought the second book accidentally from the bookstore, so she loaned me her first book and I loaned her the second. I'm only going to finish the book so I can read what I paid for lol

    But on to the book, it is decent. I don't think I would read it again or suggest it to anyone. What kind of baffles me is that this Plain Jane girl who [I assumed/pictured] to be so insecure and shy is okay with loosing her virginity to this guy after knowing him for a week. And how she suddenly gains all this confidence. Then this guy who has had sex with 15 other women (which is pretty high count to say he's so young) is turned on by her wearing his underwear or using his toothbrush. And then I am amazed at how well she gives oral sex for never doing it before or ever watching porn. I mean my first time I sucked (no pun intended) and the guy had to TELL me what to do! Guess she's just lucky... Also the way Christian speaks is too weird/creepy sometimes. Some woman in the airport told me she's hooked to the trilogy and is now midway through the second when I was just on the second chapter, she said the sex scenes are OOOOHHH! So I get to them and they are okay, I mean maybe since I read Zane and other "erotic fiction" back in high school it's not that hot to me IDK. Ana cries at the drop of a dime, he game me an orgasm waaa, he gave me a new car waaa, he won't cuddle waaaa, he holds my hand waaa. I also don't know a guy who will buy a women who he is not in a deep committed relationship with a new car or some books worth 4,000 but I also don't know millionaires so... And if this woman uses the word murmur one more time I'm going to KILL myself!

    Sorry for the rant, I'm tired of talking to the same person about this book.

    I'm reading it online now [since I don't have money to buy it new, and if I get it used I'm afraid I'll get old woman vagina slime all over my hands, gross.]
    The writing is horrible. My 6th grade homework was written better than this.
    But the plot is interesting... thus I'm still reading.
