What I am Reading

I am a big book reader when I find the time.  I love to sit with a good book and totally lose myself.  I use to be really into murder mystery type books, but then I started having bad dreams about them.  It was about the time I had my first son.  I think that made me start to realize bad things at work in the world and I let my imagination get away with me.  So then I turned to chick literature.  These types of books are about all things I love to read about: fashion, romance, and shopping.  I also am a big fan of series books.  I loved Harry Potter and the Twilight series for this very reason.  My neighbor down the street is also a big reader and she asked me if I had heard of the Shades of Grey series.  She saw a piece on the Today show which I am linking below.

I headed to my local library and checked the series out.  And can I say, "Holy shades of gray".  I loved the romantic storyline of Twilight and this has that element, but it has a whole lot more in the adult side of things.  Wink Wink.  They are pretty easy reads and it has a great story line to go along with it.  One of the reviews I read recently was a woman husband saying if it brings this much action into my bedroom then please read away dear.  Let me know if you have read them or if you have another series that you are currently enjoying. 

The triology is by E L James
1. Shades of Grey
2. Shades of Darker
3. Shades of Freedom


  1. I love to read too. Love to cuddle on a comfy sofa and just read on. Never heard of this series. Will check it out. Following you. Hope you have the time to check my blog out and see whether you like to follow too.

  2. I keep hearing all the buzz about this book. Mine arrived the other day from amazon and it is just sitting on my nightstand waiting for me!!

    I cant wait to start reading!! Happy Thursday

  3. I used to read murder mysteries as well but they got too dark for me. I LOVE Harry Potter and I re-read the series every summer. (It's my tradition). I have a friend who read the Twilight series and she said that even though they were aimed at tweens, that they were addicting. So I am going to have to read them too. She said the Hunger Games is the same way. Have you read that yet? I am slowly getting through The Other Boleyn Girl right now. (I have a 3 year old and a 7 month old so I don't get to read as much as I used to.)
