Thanks to Parajunkee and Alison Can Read for hosting Follow Friday every week.
This weeks question:
What is a book you didn’t like that all your friends raved about or what book did you love that wasn’t popular?A: I don't know if this counts, but I really wish that NO ONE liked 50 Shades of Grey (Gray? I don't really care). I've read enough reviews and I've seen enough people go absolutely ridiculous over this book that it makes me feel nauseous. I don't want to read "mommy porn". I don't care HOW much you say I will like it. There is nothing sexy or romantic about a woman allowing a man to BEAT her. Absolutely nothing. I was actually IN an abusive relationship. Mentally, verbally, and occasionally physically, and I tell you what... it didn't turn me on. It made me angry. It's an awful thing to experience. I can promise you that I will never EVER read ANY of those books.
Sorry, I'll step down off my soap box now.
