Fifty Shades of Grey - E.L. James When one of my non-GR friends read this and couldn't stop talking about how hot this book was I thought I would give it a try to see how it compared to some of my other "erotic" reads. Since I could borrow in for free from the library's ebook service I figured what the heck. Well, I wouldn't classify this with they typical BDSM erotic books out there. It was steamy, but it wasn't even close in content with some of the books I have read in this genre. If I was to rate this solely as based on content and writing I probably would have given a single or 2 star rating. However, I have to agree with some other readers, that like the Twilight books it was originally based off of (don't get me started on the similarities) the story itself got me hooked and I couldn't put it down, despite how infuriating it was.
