50 shades of you know what...

Friday, May 18, 2012

[The blog pinch-hitting continues - this time, here's Allison, a.k.a my first blog friend EVER who apparently thinks about sex when she thinks of me ;)]

While Alexa lays relaxing on a beach with a mojito or vodka soda in her hand sunning herself safely with SPF 30 (put it on my friend!), she commissioned a few her fellow bloggers to contribute to the Plum! I was so excited to participate!

The first thing that came to mind - Sex. I don't know why it just did.


The second thing that came to mind - 50 Shades of Grey.

If you don't know what I'm talking about, you are, in fact, living under a rock my friends so pull yourself out from under it and grab a copy.

It's the book I've been reading after I heard a fellow friend talk about it a few months ago and then the media took a hold of it, so it was quickly moved up my summer reading list.



If you'd like a preview of what to expect, please laugh your ass off to Ellen reading some of the adult scenes between the two main characters - Anastasia and Christian.


Is the book all about sex? Yes, pretty much but there are definitely interesting underlying storylines, however, if they aren't having sex, she is biting her lip and getting promised sex or spanking or something of that nature.

Is it believable?
I suppose the whole college-student-meets-28-year-old-gorgeous-billionaire is possible but I question the fact she was a 22 year-old virgin. Yes, that's right - she has her V card and goes from virgin territory into a relationship with a dominant sexual partner. I don't make this up, people!

Will I keep reading?
Oh my god yes! It's hilarious and at times I say out loud, "She did not just say that" or "What the hell is that" and proceed to google said contraption I'm sure of.

Should you read it?
Duh. If nothing else it provides lots of inside jokes between you and your friends or an excuse to spontaneously have a "book club" to discuss what happens in the book.

So, if you read it - are you a fan or not? If you aren't reading it, why the hell not?!?

  1. So I just started watching Girls on HBO and there's a 22-year old virgin on that too!! Is this a trend?

  2. So... I hate this book. I can't finish it, but I feel like I HAVE TO. That Ellen bit was so funny that I think I'll give it another go.

  3. I did read it and laughed and/or cringed through a lot of it. But will I take books 2 and 3 on my honeymoon to read on the beach. Yes, I will.

  4. Haven't read it b/c I keep hearing that people either say they LOVE it or it's kinda dumb. I haven't had time to get a copy and find out for myself. Once my neighbor is done with her copy, I plan to check it out.

  5. This is so funny, because I too just got back from a beach vacay (with 20 older women I might add) and every one of those silver foxes was engrossed in this series! Hahah I was dying hearing them read passages out loud!
