Yes, it happened.
I’ve read 2 1/2 books in a week’s time. And you know what? I’m not ashamed to admit it. I cannot. put. them. down.
Is it the best thing I’ve ever read? Absolutely not. Are phrases overused? Um, yea. But then again, how many times were we reminded of Edward’s GOLDEN EYES?
But all the panting, lip biting, dark and gray, super gray, intensely gray, intense AND gray, serious and gray, super gray, [insert 100+ other ways to say "gray eyes" here] aside, I LOVE this series.
And not because of the erotic scenes — seriously — I could take them or leave them — in some cases, actually, I find myself skimming through them to get to the actual plot. These books are a true testament to “behind every great man, is a great woman.” I have completely fallen for Anastasia and Christen and quite frankly fear for those around me if the series doesn’t end with them living a very happily ever after. These two characters are some of my very favorites I’ve “met” (DORK alert.)
I simply adore Anastasia — one of the strongest, most relate-able female characters I’ve seen in my time. If you have apprehension tot his book, put it aside and give it a try. It really is so much more than the hype.
Have you read Fifty Shades? Why do YOU like or NOT LIKE the series?
