Fifty Shades of Grey

There are two reasons I haven't written anything for 5 days. I was very busy:

1. being on a business trip for 5 days. It was quite demanding - first renting a new car, then driving for 500 kilometers and then working there, in big caotic city. But I had nice moments... it is always nice to visit a new city.  I will tell you more about destination in a separate post, when I download the pictures.

2. reading Fifty Shades of Grey. First of all I didn't want to read it at all since the reviews are quite bad. But since my best friend read it and knowing that publishers of this book broke many records, I wanted to read it as well. And - I love it!!! Well, I read only 200 pages so far (I guess the nastier stuff comes after the page 200), but so far I just loved it . Can't wait until my DH comes home :) 

(PS: it is actually too personal ... so just a short comment that it really sucks how infertility affects sex life. Luckily, the black years are alredy behind us!)


  1. My sister's friend lent the book to my sister and now she is on the second one. She didn't want to read it at first either, but now she is hooked. I guess maybe I should give it a whirl myself one of these days. I know exactly what you mean about how infertility affects your sex life. After our 2nd miscarriage in 2010 I didn't want sex (my head was so mixed with emotions), but I am glad to say that once we fully accepted our new "status" of childfree we are now back into the swing of how it use to be in the beginning of our relationship - so much happier :)

  2. Ok, ok…I read all 3 books in the series! I just had to see for myself what they were about. I actually liked the first book. It has its own weird draw that I found interesting. Books 2 and 3 I didn’t like, but I made myself finish them because I am weird like that.
    I totally agree that what infertility does to you sex life sucks… but it’s fun to try to restore it!!!
    Have fun reading:)

  3. Since I have a long commute to work everyday, I tend to listen to audio books. I have this one resevered at the library - and should have it sometime in the next few weeks.

  4. WOW...driving for 500 km in a new city? Sounds demanding indeed! I've been sick for the past few days, but I'm feeling better every day though not 100% yet.

    I can truly relate to your P.S. The moment when we decided to let go of TTC was the liberation from scheduled-unnatural-sex-acts and we could start making love again. :-)

  5. It is only 6:30 in the morning and I just finished reading the book. And I already made reservation for volume 2 and 3 for next week. So... looking forward to more reading :)

    Dear KT - it made me smile, imagining you among crowds, listening to some juicy parts of the book :)

  6. *grin* Sorry I'm on the other side- I -had- read the book, not wanting to rely on reviews, I ended up tossing it out in disgust. Reminds me too much of domestic violence and mature version of Twilight. I like Anne Rice's Sleeping Beauty series better, with healthier relationships and roles.

    Have fun reading your book! :)

  7. Hi Wolfers,
    I was almost 100 % sure that I will toss the book out in disgust. Well, sometimes I can even surprise myself :)

    I will check Anne Rice out... I haven't heard of her yet.

    I am always on a hunt of different books. I love reading now, that winter is approaching.

  8. Loved the book as well...well, all three books! They weren't the best written books, but they were quite entertaining. I read all three in 4 days!

    My husband was quite happy! :-)

    1. dear Kellie,
      your last sentence made me smile. Yup, my husband was also happy after the first book :)

      And guess what - yesterday after work I went to a bookstore and bought second and third book. Already reading :)

      (just to boast a bit: the second and third book aren't even translated yet in my language... so I am really happy to speak English :) )
