Fifty Shades of WHAT?

I’m not really trying to hold myself up on a high horse or anything, but I just wasn’t that interested in reading Fifty Shades of Grey by E L James.  Both my siblings have read the first book in the series but after hearing them talk about how descriptive this book is, I wasn’t all that eager to run out and buy it.  In fact I’ve never mentioned the book to my hubby at all which is why I was quite surprised when he presented me the book today as a gift.  He told me it came highly recommended from his friend.  I, on the other hand, had mixed emotions upon receiving it.  I mean I’m grateful for any gift my super cute and wonderful hubby has to offer so that part was terrific, but I’ve heard this book has some disturbing content that I wasn’t all that crazy about reading in the first place.  It would be different if I was whining and walking around the house dropping hints that I wanted this book but I wasn’t, so I’m quite reserved after getting it. 

The question is do I read it?


  1. I read them all. They were graphic, but if you are like me, you skip most of the graphic stuff because there is home humor in there too and a real love story.

    Book two awful and really the writing was very elementary.

  2. It's not my cup of tea and for reasons you wouldn't think.

    Been there done that and it doesn't always have a fairytale ending.

    I won't touch the book.

  3. Phillipians 4:8 "And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise." This is the verse I have come to realize needs to be the barometer I need to test my choices by. Does what I'm doing, watching, reading, listening to fit these criteria? If not then I have to leave them alone. Just thought that might help a little bit :).

  4. Here is a blog post I stumbled upon and thought I could share it with you...

    I love how this blogger adds scripture and is humble in what she says.
