Book Club Challenge: Part 1

If you all remember from this post, Peaches and I started our very own exclusive book club.
Obviously, you were all welcomed to join!
The first book that we chose was one that was turning the heads of females everywhere.
We picked Fifty Shades of Grey.
It was promised to be dirty, witty, and above all juicy.
I am only halfway through the book, but boy did it deliver so far!!
The juice is practically dripping off of the pages!

There are two main characters to the story.
Anastasia Steele is a young, naive girl that is in the midst of graduating from college.
She's real innocent, super quirky, and absolutely gorgeous.
She's one of those girls that's pretty and doesn't even know it!  Basically, I love her!!
Christian Grey is a young billionaire that is busy running his own company.
He's a real naughty, control freak that is so gorgeous every girl loses her breath.
In the book he's described as so good looking, that his looks should be illegal!  Yum!

After getting to know these two characters inside and out (literally!), Peaches and I began to talk about them like they are our old friends.  We began gossiping about their lives as if we just accidentally bumped into them at Starbucks!  That got us thinking.
Clearly we have an image of who these characters are in our minds.
Besides, word is they will be making a movie out of this steamy book real soon!

Our first book club challenge is to pick two actors that we imagine these characters to be. 
 The physical description needs to match and the personality should be fitting.
My OCD says so!!  Sorry, Peaches, but the brunette male hottie doesn't qualify!  :)

Peaches Picks:

Anastasia Steele as Vanessa Hudgens.
I can't believe I just posted a Hudgens pic on my blog...Only for Peaches...


Christian Grey as David Beckham.
So yum!!



Jax Picks:

Anastasia Steele as Evangeline Lilly.
Absolutely gorgeous without even knowing how pretty she is.  I love her!


Christian Grey as Chris Hemsworth.
Double yum!!!



Did you start reading The Fifty Shades of Grey yet?

  8. Okay so unlike yesterday I can find joy today..hahaha...Evangeline Lilly definitely wins for me. Even if she likes blowing houses with people in them and running from the law..haha

    That is when you know a book is good when you can talk about the characters as if they are real people. Even if it is kind of taking the whole imaginary friend thing to a whole new level..hahaha

    You have me intrigued but still hmmm not sure i can bring myself to read it..haha

    Oh dear, gloria is still going on about the dear even here..hahaha

    ReplyDelete
  9. @Leslie...Ohh, steamy is an understatement ;)

    @Rooth...I'm not embarassed. I read it proudly!!! But, many claim to be embarassed. Sigh...

    @Gloria...You need to read it!! You'll love it!! :)

    @Gloria...Don't let that bully of a cat intimidate you!!!!!! You can dear all you please on my page! In fact, I'll dear with you, dear :)

  12. I haven´t read this book yet! i´m on the last few pages of the third book of the millenium saga! you know "the girl with the dragon tattoo" that got Rooney Mara to the top? well i´m almost done with that trilogy! each book is 700+ pages long so it wasn´t what you call a fast read!
    i like beckham and evangeline for these roles... :)

  14. But sadly she chose Charlie in real life and I guess Sawyer in Lost life, guess Fox just didn't cut it..haha...interesting how she dated the guy from Lord of the rings and is now starring in the hobbit.

    LMAO so true, although with imaginary friends like them, one may not leave the house..haha

    I suppose I just may have to now. And oh dear I've started something with the dear hating hahaha

    @Krysten...I don't know how you're waiting!! You should buy it!! Sooo good :)

    ReplyDelete
  20. @Pat...She chose Jack in Lost life!!!!! Sawyer chose Juliet. Sigh...I'm disappointed in you!!!! hahahaha I read a lot of her interviews. I love her thoughts on life. Just all around admire her. You know she's Canadian, right?? haha

    Dear, you're going to read this book?? Oh dear!!! (The dear is kind of addicting...LOL)

    ReplyDelete

  22. Nope I have to live vicariously through you my friend! When I could see I would have read it in a heartbeat!

    ReplyDelete
  23. @Melynda...Ohh, no worries. I will tell you all about it!! Do you listen to audio books at all? I wonder if it's on there. That would make for a real steamy listen ;)

    ReplyDelete
  24. Where did you get that picture of me? ...what? Christian Grey? Who?

    ReplyDelete
  25. I haven't read this book (and probably never will) but I definitely think your pick for Anastasia Steele is best!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Oh my. I need to read this book. Your picks are great. My friend keeps gushing about these books.

    ReplyDelete
  27. She only chose Jack once they were all umm dead off in la la land. So technically she never chose him in lost life, she chose him in lost death..haha

    Yeah I knew she was Canadian, as she almost didn't get the role on Lost because her passport almost didn't come in time for her to get down there.

    My dear I do not know if I will read your dear book. But I'm sure an oh dear will come from reading it if I do, dear. lmao

    ReplyDelete
  28. @Mike...I apologize. I didn't mean to exploit your personal photographs like that. hahahaha

    @Beserc...You have good taste ;) But you should definately read the book!!!

    @Miranda...Join the club!!! Give in a read them. I swear you won't regret it!

    @Pat...Nooo, she chose jack on the island too right before he died! She just pitied Sawyer and he was always there. Kate and Jack forever!! hahaha Did you just dear me???? How dare you, dear!! LOL!! That's noted for Gerard Butler at some future point and time.

    @Baur...yes it does!
