    OOOOHHH the movie opens TODAY!! now, i'm not likely to ever see the movie, but i will say it's pretty ballsy to cast the romantic lead - a character who ties up ladies for erotic enjoyment - with the actor that many people only know as the character who ties up ladies for erotic enjoym...

    Uh, wow. So this is IT?!! The book that the whole world is in utter fascination with?!! I think someone is laughing their way to the bank. First, here is a mini review of this book in two GIFs: About the plot: About the writing: Got that?? OK, now more of my sordid tho...

    This was like reading a jackhammer. This was like if Hannah Montana tried to write an erotica novel. The popularity of this book makes me need to move to a different planet. I am making the assumption that it comes from people not actually liking to read, but liking to have t...

    Post Script on May 8, 2012 This book has exploded since I first read it and it seems to be one that is either loved or hated. I'm actually very thankful that I read it before any of my GR friends or anyone I knew, because I feel like if I read it now, after hearing all the hype, it wo...

    Bad Book Is Like Other Bad Book Shock At a standing-room-only press conference earlier today, top researchers from the world famous Goodreads Center for Bodice-Ripping, Bondage and Twilight Studies revealed that a bad book was quite a lot like another bad book. "When I saw the fi...

    What in the hell just happened? Did I really read that? Oh, my god, I did. I did read that. Meet Anastasia Steele: Ana is just a giant mess of a human being. She's insecure to the point of it being laughable, 'klutzy' (even though she only trips twice in the entire book)...

    I didn?t want to start this book. Many people are praising it but I?m simply not into erotica, it?s too cheap for me. But here I am in the mind of the innocent waiting to be devoured by the big bad wolf. Sounds pornographic, doesn?t it? That?s because it is? Christ...

    Let me start by saying.... Wow! Just Wow!! This book is 5+ stars for me!! It is my favorite kind of story. You know what I mean...just so intense that the characters get so far under your skin that you can't stand to be away from them for any length of time? Well, that was me while ...

    Garbage. Absolutely horrifying, utter trash. A waste of trees, bookshelf space and precious, oh so very fucking precious braincells. Honestly, why is this even published? Every single book store in Sydney is promoting this tripe, claiming it to be some kind of awesome romance novel. Ar...

    Huh. Let's see how bad this book really is. *reads some quotes from others' statuses* This book is trash and I don't even want to finish the damn thing. The excerpts are enough. I will not be under the influence of this devilry! Not even for the snark! Not even to make ...

    I have finally made a decision about Fifty Shades of Grey. I know, I know, my review of this isn't really needed, everybody's talking about this book, everybody's got the general gist of what it's about. But I've spent quite a long time thinking about this novel, the characters, and ...

    0 stars. DNF @55%. Review edited February 12, 2015 ?Sex is more than an act of pleasure, it's the ability to be able to feel so close to a person, so connected, so comfortable that it's almost breathtaking to the point you feel you can?t take it. And at this moment you'r...

    You know, I was beginning to wonder if I needed to change some of my two star books to one star. I was thinking that I might not ever personally read a book worthy of one star, and I was messing up my scale by giving some of the more lame books I've read lately two stars instead of one...

    Really.. blah, blah. On & on. No purpose, no plot, meandering for meandering's sake. I didn't finish it because, quite frankly, the 'heroine' got on my last fucking nerve. The writing style is atrocious and I can't fathom how or why so many people love this tiny slice of interweb f...

    2.5 stars. I don't think I've ever read a book that's left me quite as bemused as this one has. The writing left a lot to be desired, the heroine didn't impress me at all and yet I find myself wanting to read the next in the series. After having a day to let this sink in I have ...

    Okay? I realized by people's comments that I never said exactly what I thought about this book. Well, I loved it. I've now read it four times. Christian Grey ranks right up there with Travis Maddox in my book boyfriend world. This series is addicting. When I need a good read this is ...

    I only bought this on Kindle because I was curious to see whether a professional edit made it any better than the original fanfic (which I abandoned once I realized the plot wasn't original enough for me to suffer through the cut-rate writing). Paging through this "published" version m...

    In the words of Miss Steele, "You need to sort your shit out, Grey!" Good day, sir! Fifty Shades of Grey, more like Fifty shades of fucked up nonsense *rolls eyes* I should get a medal for just finishing this tripe. I honestly do NOT feel like revisiting this book and writ...

    ONE HUNDRED BILLION NEGATIVE STARS Well, I think it?s safe to say that I?m buying myself a chastity belt and am joining a nunnery. This book has put me off sex for ever and ever. I know I said I was never going to touch this with a ten-foot pole, but then this happened: ...

    I read this book back before E.L. James even wrote it. I don't brag about a lot of things, but my review skills are one of the few things I will brag about. E.L. James read my review on this book and she loved it SO much, she decided to go ahead and write the book. Here is a word-fo...

    I feel like there is a deeper meaning behind Fifty Shades of Grey then just BDSM and sex but the huge downfall of this book was the writing. I can see both sides of the fifty shades argument. There are points in the book where I can see abuse but there are also points where there is no...

    I love the Fifty Shades trilogy! I've read this book so many times and each time I enjoy it as much as the last. It's one of those books that doesn't really need a review. Christian Grey will always hold a special place in my heart and on my list of book boyfriends <3 ...

    The first time I tried to read Fifty Shades of Grey, I almost threw the book out of the window. I read the first 10 chapters and gave up. I have a really hard time DNFing a book. I'm always curious to find out how things will end, even though I have an inkling about how thin...

    *Trigger Warning: This review contains strong themes, to include rape.* Before I begin what will likely become a very long rant/public service announcement, let me first say a few words. I have nothing against E.L. James. Nothing. She?s said that this series is a fantasy she manag...
