THROWBACK THURSDAY #TBT ~ The Fifty Shades of Grey Triology by E. L. James

Features a book that was published more than a year ago.
A book that I have re-read at least once.

My #TBT this week is a combination of Throwback Thursday while Waiting on Wednesday. Yes it's the book that everyone loves to hate, Fifty Shades of Grey.

I can't tell you how many times I've read and re-read this series, each time like it was the first. Fifty Shades of Grey was THE series that brought me back to reading.   I never understood why people hated this book. I mean if you're looking for a book to get you THINKING, umm this is not the book. Looking for something THOUGHT PROVOKING, umm yeah wrong again. THIS BOOK IS SMUT at its best or its best worst. (Yeah, I meant to write that)

Do you know of any 22-year-old female equipped to handle a man that is as emotionally and sexually fucked up as Christian Grey? I'm a thirty-something female, and I'm barely equipped to handle a hormonal teenager. When I first read this series I didn't think Ana was whiny childish, she didn't annoy me.  I thought it was a romance novel similar to the Harlequinn Romances "My Momma" (that's her name) had hidden in her closet. Just with whips, canes and blindfolds. If you read and enjoyed those books way back when WHY not this one?

If I hadn't read these books I probably would not have found authors like, CJ Roberts, Tiffany Reisz, Olivia Cunning, and Michelle Valentine just to name a few. I purchased the first book in the series on April 2012 and according to Goodreads I have read 1003 books, not including re-reads. Love it or hate it this series brought a lot of people back to reading.

Now for my Waiting on Wednesday ~ I am waiting on February 13, 2015 release day for the Fifty Shades of Grey movie!!! I'm can't wait to see how my imagination matched with the producer and writer. I just hope I'm not disappointed.  Oh and that remix of Crazy in Love by Beyonce is HAWT!!! Can't wait to see the what other songs are on this soundtrack!!!

Happy Reading
