I know, I know. Many seem to LOVE this cringeworthy, hot mess of a so-called book. Me? I’ve tried reading it twice and was only able to barely make it through the first few pages. But the movie is coming out next year and stars Mr. Hottie McHotster, Jaimie Dornan.
And yes, I will absolutely, positively see this craptastic masterpiece of a movie when it comes out on Netflix. Because I have a 5 year-old and have pretty much forgotten what a movie theater looks like.
I first noticed this gorgeous man, Jaimie Dornan, in Marie Antoinette, playing Count Fersen. Whooo! Is it getting hot in here? And I remember some scenes where he was grinding up against the lucky, lucky Kirsten Dunst.
Yeah, it is hot in here.
Now, I’m not a book snob by any means. I mean hello, I look forward to my US Weekly coming in the mail every week and may even do a happy dance when I see it. But 50 Shades Of Grey is pretty fucking awful. And that’s putting it mildly.
So, a few days ago I gave myself a little talk. I said “You know what, me? This craptastic book must be read! It’s not like you need to read it for the movie or anything. You must read it for the laughs.”
Keep in mind. There are a few universal truths:
1. Laughter really is the best medicine.
2. You need those guilty pleasures because life can be a pain in the ass.
3. Jaimie Dornan is such a hottie.
Now, this is where you may or may not come in. I would love for us to read this “book” together. And no, I won’t judge you if you’ve already read it. Or maybe even liked it. Okay, I probably will judge you but that’s besides the point. I promise not to hold it against you.
We need to read this book together, have some laughs, and snark the shit out of it.
I will try my best to give weekly updates on it and you are more than welcome to do the same. Whether you put your take on it in the comment section of my blog, on my FB page, or if you have your own blog and aren’t worried about your readers and/or family members questioning your life choices and sanity.
Whatever the case may be, if I have your permission, I’ll include your views of this book in the updates or link the post you write on your blog.
So, who’s with me?
Don’t worry, if you’re all for it and want to participate but then decide not to, no big deal.
So, ladies… this week, we will be reading the first 4 chapters.
Remember, Jaimie Dornan is counting on us!
Oh my, excuse me while I stick my head in the freezer and cool off.
