Day 23 – Most Overrated Book

30 Day Book Challenge – Day 23- Most Overrated Book

Fifty Shades of Grey


I knew what I was laying my hands on when I picked up the book. But IΒ really wasn’t expecting this:

  • A story about a girl (Ana) who couldn’t hold herself together after setting her eyes on a hot guy (Grey). I mean, she either tripped or went all gaga wanting to kiss him.
  • And should I say about Grey, I would just give him one name, A Demigod. I mean he was pictured to be perfect. Frankly, I loved the description about him. But what I couldn’t digest was, he could do just about anything. Bug the girl’s phone even without touching it (Really!?), be at the right place to rescue her when she was all drunk, and why not!? He had lots of money and a driver/security who just about did anything for him (Which includes buying lingerie for his newly met girlfriend).
  • The weirdest part, he could chain her, spank her and do all the supposedly ‘normal’ things but he couldn’t handle a cuddle. *Kill me already*
  • Oh! How do I forget? Nor should she bite her lips. What I never understood was, Ana was never hungry. But she chewed her lips all the time. Specially when he asked her not to.
    Throughout I imagined a girl who kept gnawing at her own lips. eew!

I just read the 1st book and that was it. I struggled to even write this much about the book. Because,Β everything about the book sucked!

      You can read it if you want. It is just that you will get bored halfway through. (Just my opinion)

  2. I have read a lot about this book but was never interested in reading it. Some people call it the erotic bible, but as always, books like these are over-rated… thanks for saving me the trouble of reading it and getting bugged on my own πŸ˜€

    1. Being erotic literature is one thing. But when a huge crowd was giving the green signal, I assumed would be some impressive content too. But it merely seemed like the author kept forgetting that it was also a story.

      1. Shows you why a crowd is usually wrong. We are bombarded by so much BS that people think their lives are boring and feel that such books must be the reality. Little realising that relationships are about little things… Not just fun and games…

      1. No, I mean there are so many better books awaiting their limelite. Unfortunately, sleaze seems to get lapped up. Atleast let it be good sensuality. How about that in your next list – the best sensual scenes in books?

      2. Wow! That seems like a good one. Just when I was wondering what next. But I don’t remember any of the scenes. Hm, this will need some thinking. πŸ™‚
