The Book Club: Complete

Guess what guys??
I finished reading Fifty Shades of Grey by E L James.
If you remember from this post, Peaches and I started a book club in honor of this romance novel.

What did I think of the book?

Sometimes I loved this book, and other times I absolutely hated it.
While I wanted a small piece of Christian Grey, I had a very rough relationship with him.
While I secretly loved Anastasia Steele, sometimes I wanted to shake some sense into her.
The bottom line is, even when I hated this book, I absolutely loved it.

This book really made me think.
The author made the characters so relatable that I felt like I knew them.
I actually would get angry when these characters did certain things.
Does it make me crazy that I gave a fictional character the silent treatment?  Don't answer that..
This book gave Peaches and I the material needed for heart felt talks about things like depression, child abuse, control issues, and relationships as a whole.

Was the book as juicy as promised?

This book was even juicer than I originally thought.
And, yes, it lived up to it's lady porn reputation.
There was drama, hidden back stories, and loads of kinky sex.
I learned all about the world of dominants and submissives.
The juice was literally dripping off of every single page in this lengthy erotic romance novel.

What was your favorite part of the book?

Anastasia Steele had two imaginary helpers to give her advice throughout the book.
There was her sensible subconscious that was constantly trying to protect her.
Then there was her inner goddess that would gloat every time her man looked at her.
My inner goddess was constantly giving her inner goddess nods of approval.  Ok, and a few winks...
The humor, desire, and passion of Steele's inner goddess was my favorite part of the novel.

You read the book, now what are you going to do with your little book club?

Excuse my inner goddess as she rolls her eyes.  Wait, don't people get spanked for that???
Fifty Shades of Grey is from a series of 3 books.
I still have two more books to go until I finish the series!!

Now, excuse me while I go order the next two books.  I'm dyeing to know what happens next!
And, yes, that was my inner goddess doing a cart wheel while holding pom poms!

Did you decide to join in on the Fifty Shades series yet?

  1. Sounds like an interesting read. Yep, it does sound like female porn. I loved your review style. I may steal that first line and morph, "does it make me crazy ....., don't answer that" would come in handy .

    1. Thanks!!!! The compliments are appreciated!

      LOL That line is great ;)

  2. It sounds like you had a great time reading it and it's not weird to have feelings about the characters even though they happen in your mind. It's just a sign that you're invested in the characters. I'm wondering how men felt about this book if they'd read it and what they thought about the two primary characters. That could be an interesting angle for a post.

    1. Ohh, Anne, I LOVE that idea. Now we just need to convince a guy to dive into this steamy read and then write about it!! I'll start recruiting. You know of anything would willingly read something so juicy??? (I get the feeling boys are intimidated by juice...lol)

  3. Jax, I'm sorry, but I'm not much a reader. My attention span is not long enough. I'm more of a picture book kind of guy ;)

  4. if she's Peaches, is you Apricot? :)
    I like kinky if it has meaning, and not if it's put there just to shock the nation.
    I swear I read so many stupid kinky things in books, like TRUE BLOOD where a vampire effs the main character crazy, and then bites his finger, sticks it into her kagina :) and does a few circles there so that her kagina would recover from the banging thanks to his vampire blood. I swear I wanted to arrest the stupid writer after that. She needs counselling :)

    1. LOL No, I'm buttercup or sugar plum :) hahahaha

      Oh, this was meaningful kink! It was all about taking control and being submissive. Very juicy!!!

      I never read or saw True Blood, so I can't comment. But that does sound interesting. I may need to second your vote for the author to go for counseling. LMAO

  5. My favorite part of the book was when Lea told Han that she loved him and he said, "I know" as he was being lowered into the carbonite.

    Replies
    1. LOL I think we're talking about two different books. I mean, wth is carbonite??? LOL

      Delete
    2. It's when Han was captured by Jabba the Hut and was frozen in a liquid Carbonite formula.

    3. Oh. LOL I never saw any of that so it's foreign to me. I know ti's one of the star wars or star trek stuff. Woops...lol

    1. Ohh, really?? You read them all already? Oh, I'm so jealous!!!

  9. Well it sounds like it was quite the book. Crazy? You? Pffft never. But you actually gave them the silent treatment with your blabber mouthing, that takes skill...LMAO

    So the imaginary friends are kind of like those old cartoons with a devil on one shoulder and an angel on the other, being opposite concious things, except a whole lot kinkier I guess..haha

    Hmmm intrigued a bit I suppose still not sure it is enough to get me to read it though..haha..the whole lady porn distinction still throws me off..hahahaha

    1. LMAO, It does take skill!!! And I'm certainly NOT crazy. Hmp!!

      No, no!! LOL It's her subconcious and inner goddess. Neither is evil or bad. One just has needs that the other one doesn't. LOL One wants more and the other one wants mooorreee. "More" was a recurring theme in the book.

      I think you should read it!! Anne wants to know a man's point of view. Who better than a rhyming cat??? LOL

      Delete
    2. LOL see the question mark, I never said you were crazy, maybe just implied it..haha

      Ohhhh I get it. Everyone wants more. You'd think a good whipping and spanking would be enough...hahaha

      LMAO a rhyming cat huh. I can just see what he would say now. Oh that would be too funny. He'd even dedicate it to Anne..hahaha

      Delete
    3. LOL Implications are bad enough!

      LOL Well the inner goddess wants more of her man, while her subconscious wanted more of a relationship. Inner battles both wanting more!! Ohhh, the juice!!!

      hahahaha Oh, Anne would love that!! For Anne. Do it for Anne!!! haha

  10. Girl, I'm over 1/2 way through the book and it sure is STEAMY!!!! You know I'm taking notes along the way for my blog. I'm gonna keep it real for the folks who care to read that post when I'm finished with the entire kinky novel. LOL!!!!

    1. Isn't it good?! Oh my!! But I still want to punch Christian in the face a few times for demeaning my lady. LOL

  14. I approve of book clubs. I approve of lenghty erotica. But what I really approve of is imaginary friends for adults. I, too, have imaginary playmates that help make my existence a little more exciting. It's one of those things that really hurts a person when they lose it to 'letting go of childish things'. Let's take a mid-day nap!

    1. LOL Sounds like you approve of a whole lot of things. My internal goddess gives you a thumbs up. hahahaha

      Delete
    2. Your internal goddess should meet either my invisible girlfriend, or invisible lawyer. Either one would have both thumbs up as well! Hahahahaha.

      Delete
    3. LMAO I'll take the g/f. My inner goddess doesn't approve of lawyers ;) hahahaha
