Another Book Everyone Liked But Me...

Oh why do I torture myself?

Once again I gave in and tried a book that "everyone" was reading. I knew it wasn't my style, but I thought I'd give it a whirl. It's a #1 Bestseller...I've got to like it, right?

I read 300 pages before finally giving up.

Fifty Shades of Grey was sexy, steamy...and so silly! The entire plot was that of a man seducing a young girl who becomes his sex slave. At least that's the gist I got after 300 pages. Maybe there was more to the story, but I wasn't going to read another 200 pages to find out.

Adding this to the list of books that everyone liked but me:

Fifty Shades of Grey
Eat Pray Love
Poisonwood Bible
Three Cups of Tea
Time Traveler's Wife
Harry Potter

A few "bandwagon" books I did like were The Help, Kite Runner, Unbroken, The Shack, The Book Thief, and The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks.

Oh well. You don't know until you try.
