I'm Tempted... But I Don't Wanna

No matter how much I'm tempted I don't want to read 50 Shades of Grey
You can't make me read this drivel!

And I'll be honest- I'm seriously tempted to read this. It's basically porn in book format. The thing is, my reading time is so limited as is so I don't want to add a book I'm not interested in just because of the hype. Both my sister-in-law and sister have read it and my sis-in-law is desperately trying to get me to read it. My solution? I told her I'd read it if my husband read it first. He never reads books so I should be safe there. But really? I don't pressure other people into reading books I like. I might suggest something but I don't go to the extent of "you have to read this right now it's amazing, I'll never leave you alone until you do OMFG READ THIS!!!" (note the extra exclamation marks for emphasis)

2 words- STOP. IT. I don't wanna! You can't make me read terrible Twilight fan fiction for adults minus the supernatural BS! For now I'm happy currently reading Stephen King and Jenny Lawson. Those are good books. See? That's a good way to recommend a book without seeming pushy... But you should at least read Jenny Lawson's book if you're looking for a laugh.


  1. I'm going to recommend you NOT read Fifty Shades of Grey. It's got to be the most unerotic "porn" I've ever read, unless creepy stalkers and surprisingly boring kink is your bag.

    1. THANK. YOU. You have no idea how much this means to me. Everyone I've talked to about it seems to think it's great. But they also liked Twilight so I should've known better.

      But creepy stalkers (AKA douchebags) and S&M? This actually seems like a book Rihanna would like- zing!
