So, ladies. Does anyone out there read…erotica?? You know, smut. Written porno. Anyone? Anyone? It can’t just be ME, can it? *shrieks*
Anyway, most of what I’ve seen out there is “plotless smut” which is like the cotton candy of fiction, kwim?? Sometimes a girl needs some PLOT. Some “meat” so to speak. *giggles* Which brings me to my book recc…
(And I apologize in advance for not telling you guys about this sooner…)
Fifty Shades of Grey. O.M.G. So so so good. FSoG is the first in a trilogy by new author E L James. She calls it “a love story with a kink“…as in kinky. *blushes* Here’s the blurb from Amazon:
When literature student Anastasia Steele is drafted to interview the successful young entrepreneur Christian Grey for her campus magazine, she finds him attractive, enigmatic and intimidating. Convinced their meeting went badly, she tries to put Grey out of her mind – until he happens to turn up at the out-of-town hardware store where she works part-time. Erotic, amusing, and deeply moving, the Fifty Shades Trilogy is a tale that will obsess you, possess you, and stay with you forever.
Honestly, that summary doesn’t do it justice. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll attack your significant other. Seriously.
Just read it. I’d advise getting the paperback AND the ebook b/c you’ll want to be able to read it at any time. Well, just not when the kids are around. *fans self* The smuttiness is EPIC. But, the love story may actually eclipse that. Just read it. You will thank me.
It’s getting a ton of buzz right now. The author E L James just did some press/interviews and events in NYC and the reaction has been overwhelming. How do I know? Well, I know her!! *brags shamelessly* She’s from London but I met her through my online book club and in person a few times over the last couple years. She’s lovely, kind, gracious, and wiTTy. (note, the Ts are emphasized b/c of how she’d say that with her BriT Tish accent)
Read the story. Do yourself a favor and buy all 3 of them together b/c you’ll HAVE to know how it all works out for Ana and Christian.
