Summer Reading, 50 Shades of Grey by E L James

The latest book that everyone is going crazy over is 50 Shades of Grey, written by E L James.

The first time I heard the title 50 Shades of Grey was actually on the news. The local news was talking about this interesting book that many people are trying to read and no libraries on my side of town are carrying. The excuse of the librarians is that it's a poorly written novel. Soon after I started hearing that the book came with a lot of controversy. Some people say it's really explicit and others say it gives BDSM a bad reputation. However, what really made me curious about buying 50 Shades of Grey is my best friend is also currently reading it.

Upon buying the book I discovered that there's a 50 Shades series. It consists of three books called 50 Shades of Grey, 50 Shades Darker, and 50 Shades Freed. So I plan to read all three.

Currently I'm halfway through the first book. While the book has its sexual moments, I think people have been exaggerating nature of this book a little. It's really just a cute love story written from the perspective of a girl falling in love for the first time. That's always dangerous.

So I will make it through this series and perhaps my opinion will change a little. Until then I also need to find more books to read after this series. Will you let me know of any new good books to read? You know where to find me (on the internet that is).
