Thursday Musing: Summer Reading Continued
After finishing the Fifty Grey’s trilogy, I found myself bored and in need to find more books to read, just to contain my boredom (I’m babbling here).
So what did I read you ask? Well, I read:
- Gone Girl- by Gillian Flynn: This book was definitely my favorite read out of these three books! It was a thriller and has twist and turns every time you turn a page. Let’s just say it makes you love both characters at first, like one over the other a third of the way through, then it makes you change your mind about who you like. By the end of the novel, you end up hating/loving both in a weird way. It’s just one of those reads that you have to really process while reading and not want to put it down. Seriously, go buy this book!
- My Life Next Door- by Huntley Fitzpatrick: It’s a cute read and insightful way people look at different families. I’m not sure I liked the ending, it could have been better, but a good read nonetheless.
- Ten Things We Did (and Probably Shouldn’t Have)- by Sarah Mlynowski: This book was on sale on amazon for Kindle App for $2.99 so I bought it. It was basically, meh. Definitely dumbed down. Deals with real life situations, yet with a cliche teenage drama. It’s a book you basically read right through, fast, because it’s really bland. I wouldn’t recommend paying more than $2.99 for this book. It’s honestly not that good.
There you have it. My summer reading is up to 6 books since the second week of July, and the month hasn’t even ended. Next book? Lost Symbol by Dan Brown; old book, but I’m curious, so I’ve finally decided to read it.
Until next time,
Thursday Musing: 50 Shades of Grey. Yes I read the books.
Why have I neglected my blog for so long this week, besides my Manicure Post earlier in the week you ask? Well, I was consumed by a trilogy that many have already read and I just got around to read it.
Fifty Shades of Grey.
Where should I begin?
Well, I had asked before on a previous post about some good summer reading and everyone kept mentioning these books, and then I’d hear it on TV and people described it as “mommy porn”. Sorry, but I’m 22, and definitely not a mommy, and a description like that makes me, for lack of a better word, uneasy.
Then Sunday night, I got my iPad and downloaded all three books. Then Monday morning I began to read. (Side note: Once I begin a book, I HAVE to finish it that day, no matter what.) Not gonna lie, I was slightly disturbed at what I was reading. Tuesday rolled around, and you can guess the pattern, I finished the second book, then Wednesday the third, which happened to be my favorite.
Now, my favorite character in the books? Christian Grey of course, even though that might sound a little weird once you start the book series, but in the end you’ll understand why. His character is, well developed (no pun intended).It seems a little twilight-ish, but better? I think.
Anyways, now I hear they are making a movie. Um, excuse me? This movie is probably going to be Rated-R, if that! Yeah, I believe this will be a story that is going to be a little weird to portray in the big screen.
And yes, I have an actor in mind that should play Christian Grey. First it was Matt Bomber, then I changed it to Matt Dallas (KY XY main character), then FINALLY, yes FINALLY, I came to the conclusion that Ian Somerhalder (Vampire Diaries) IS CHRISTIAN GREY. As far as Anastasia (the other main character) I think maybe Lucy Hale (Pretty Little Liars).
I will be so upset if Ian Somerhalder doesn’t play Christian Grey. He’s just so good at being bad. Yes I said.
Until next time,
