Valentines Day Plans?: Fifty Shades of Grey Movie Date!


February is finally here and so the countdown to the highly anticipated Fifty Shades of Grey movie release has begun! I am extremely excited for this film as I was slightly obsessed with the books when they first came out and reading them non-stop. Plus I loved going into work and having a gossip with the girls on what chapter they were on!

I know a lot of people weren't keen on the trilogy when the hype first came around and a few people mocked then and compared them to their nan's old Mills and Boon books but I do have to give FSOG a bit of credit and say for "Erotic Romance" books, they're actually quite good.

I love reading and when I was teenager I had piles of girly romance books (even a few Ashley and Mary-Kate series) which I really loved but obviously as I grew up, so did my tastes in reading. My mom (also a keen reader) used to have so many different genres of books, mostly crime and thriller, and none of them took my fancy. I loved reading and I felt that I couldn't really get into anything that was easy going but nothing too hardcore that it felt like a chore.

That was until I found Twilight. Go ahead, mock. But Twilight was at a level that had my lovely romance but also had that drama/action that made the book slightly more adult. (Yes, I can't believe I'm saying this about Twilight). A few years after my obsession with Twilight was over though, I heard about this new and saucy book which was actually inspired by the Bella and Edward love story so of course I had to give it a try. I'm not really into Erotic books and even I will admit I skipped through a few of the sex scenes (seriously how many times did they have sex?!) but I absolutely loved it. The romance between the characters was gripping and you felt like you couldn't put the book down because every chapter ended with a cliffhanger. Like I said above, I know people mock the series but the books got me back into reading again and for that I cannot fault it!

So to summarise, Fifty Shades of Grey is basically like Twilight mixed with Porn.
