Welcome to another week, Fancy Oatmeal readers!
You’ll have to excuse this rushed post – I have a secret to share with you. I am really kind of embarrassed to share with you that I’ve been reading, and solidly hooked, on the novel, Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L. James.
I have been hearing about this book for quite some time, I fully understood the descriptor of, “romance novel for adult women.” Ok, well if it’s on the New York Time’s Best Sellers list then it can hardly be your run of the mill, tawdry romance novel, right?
I started reading at 2pm on Sunday afternoon, and forced myself to stop at 11pm. I woke up at my normal time to run this morning, but read for the entire two hours before it was time to get into the shower. Yea, it’s that page-turning.
I’ll get to my review once I’ve finished reading this thing, but my GAWD I’m almost embarrassed to write it. I barely had the nerve to share with you guys that I read the damn book. And now my mother knows I’ve read such things?!?! SHAME SHAME SHAME! But will that stop me from finishing the trilogy? Um no.
So if you’ll excuse me, I’ll write a proper blog post after I’ve gotten to the end of the first novel. Until then, SHHHH!
