I read books a lot. I use to feel ashamed of telling people that reading books is my favorite hobby because I do not want people to think that I'm a nerdy, boring, serious type of a girl. Good thing I learned to accept myself just as I am. I'm also glad that I am a bookworm. I know which book is good and which one is bad.
Speaking of bad. One of the worst books I read is the much-hyped, Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy. Yep, I read those three. It is not because of the content because I learned a few tricks and tips here and there. Ahaha! I don't really know if the book depicted BDSM (bondage/discipline, dominance/submission, and sadism/masochism) itself since I have never been interested or even curious about that topic.
The plot is ho-hum. This is the reason why I seldom read pure love stories. My mind don't get stimulated. The characters are bland as well. I don't know. but they are just not that interesting. How can I forget the lines? "Stop biting your lips!", "Good point well made, Miss Stelle/Mrs. Grey", "Oh My!" These are almost present in every chapter. Ughh!
This book is badly written. The author has a writing skill of a novice writer. It makes me feel like I can make my own book and publish it to the world. I don't want to criticize someone of how bad he/she is in writing because I know I'm not in the position to do so. Just look at my blog? I write things as I would say it. But if you're going to publish your book to the world, wouldn't you think grammar is as important as the story?
This is just my opinion. I'm sorry to the book's fans. I don't understand why a lot of girls would consider this a great book when clearly, it's not. I just hope the movie version would be a lot better. For those who haven't read the book, I have an e-book (epub) I can share. Just leave me your email addrsss. Read it (if you can bear it) and tell me what you think.
