So last week I succumbed to the hype that is the 50 Shades of Grey Trilogy and bought all the books for an amazing £12 on Amazon. I am a huge reader but I have never been one for erotic friction or 'mummy porn' as some are calling it, but after the first chapter I was hooked. A week after purchasing them I am five chapters into the third book and confident I will finish it before the weekend comes. 'Romantic, liberating and totally addictive. This is a novel that will obsess you, possess you and stay with you forever' - truer words have never been spoken.
Don't get me wrong it's a great insight into the life of a Dom-Sub relationship and at times I felt slightly embarassed reading (being the same age as Anastasia myself), but it's the story behind that which is most captivating. The love, the neglect, the hunger, the desire. Not only has this book extended the minds of most women who read it, but it has given me like others more confidence, more love and more drive.
These books have made me appreciate my boyfriend more, not to take things for granted, to love more and have great confidence in myself in all decisions I make. After reading chapter after chapter I feel liberated and empowered, like I could take on the world. Never has a book given me such confidence and I thank E L James for her imagination and writing. Ladies, if you haven't read these yet I highly recommend you do - you won't regret it. And please, let me know your thoughts if you have read them in the comments section, I'd love to know!
