"I’m always amazed at friends who say they try to read at night in bed but always end up falling asleep. I have the opposite problem. If a book is good I can’t go to sleep, and stay up way past my bedtime, hooked on the writing. Is anything better than waking up after a late-night read and diving right back into the plot before you even get out of bed to brush your teeth?" -John Walters 

LOVE reading. Although, I didn't actually start readingreading until July of 2012 when I got my Nook, the love of my life.

Abbreviations I use in my reviews:

WTS (Wrist Twitch Syndrome) - The compulsory jerking of the wrist in an effort to pitch the nook away from the body to reduce mental anguish and self inflicted bodily harm. 

ERS (Eye Roll Syndrome)The act of rolling one’s eyes multiple times in a matter of mere minutes.

The severity of this syndrome tend to vary from benign eye rolls every now and then, depending on the situation and protagonist, to intense eye rolls, of which, cause the body to seize up for minutes at a time.

**Both symptoms tend to manifest as a result of naive, stupid, clueless, lovesick, rose-glasses wearing puddle-depth fucktard protagonists or an ag-on-izing storyline.

Fifty Shades Trilogy - E.L. James My thoughts. First: If you really adore the words 'heady' and 'wanton' you will really enjoy reading this book. Second: If you ever loathed Bella Swan, Sookie Stackhouse, Katniss Everdeen or Elena Gilbert (to name some) you will definitely loath Anastasia Steele. Period. The reason why woman authors continue to portray leading female characters as being weak, incapable of making a decision or perpetually emotionally befuddled will always escape me. Third: By the second book all of the 'erotic' scenes were first, getting redundant and second, completely unrealistic...you show me a man that can go that many rounds in one day...one week...one month and I'll show you a purple polka dotted flying monkey!

My overall impression though? *shrug* Eh, it's a decent read, I actually enjoyed the storyline of this series and could have done without as much "erotica" that was portrayed and would have still really enjoyed reading these books.

My advice? Read them yourself and draw your own conclusion. :)
