E-mail to Christian Grey – Fifty Shades review!

On Goodreads I found this review of Fifty Shades of Grey. It is written by Claire from Claire’s Book Corner – you should go visit her blog. She has quite an amazing list of reviews.

Thank you, Claire, for giving me a good laugh and give me permission to post your wonderful review on my blog 🙂

Dear Mr Grey

Or should I call you Sir? I have recently finished the first part of your trilogy about the romance between yourself and Miss Anastasia Steele and like Miss Steele I thought it would be easier for me to write my feelings down in an e-mail to you. You see I don’t tend to read books like the one written about you. In fact if you take a look at my bookshelf you will see less than five.

So where shall I begin? Well I think I should start with my feelings for you. To put it bluntly Mr Grey you beguile me. Even though I have only known you for four days I am a little embarrassed to say that I cannot stop thinking about you Sir. It seems that my every waking moment is about you. I have even dreamt about you. I have been so addicted to your story that I have grabbed every moment I could to read about you. I have skipped meals because that would take me away from you, I have stayed up late reading about you and I have also been late for work because yes you guessed it I was reading about you. I do not think you would have been happy about my behaviour Mr Grey and I fear that if I were yours my behind would be fifty shades of black and blue. I would also like to say how much I approve of Miss Steele. You have a wonderful girlfriend, she is clever and funny and I like her very much.I loved reading the e-mails between you both they were very witty and entertaining.

I must admit that I have seen your book around for a while and many of my friends have read it and raved about it but I didn’t even give you a look until this week but I am so glad I did. I see that your story is classified as erotica but I’m afraid I do not agree with this and I would class it as romance. Yes there is BDSM in your story and very hot scenes of you and Miss Steele but for me it is a love story. I have read a couple of erotica books before and they are nothing like yours. Unlike the others, which seemed to be just about sex, your book has a plot and a story that needs telling. Have you ever read a book Mr Grey and wished that you had written it and that it was your words on the page? Well that is how I feel about this book, I absolutely love it. I love the authors words and style of writing, it has bewitched me. Could this be the best book that I have ever read? You know what, I think it could be. This book has completely taken over my life, a first for me I must say. I have even listened to Spem In Alium by Thomas Tallis this morning. You know, the music you make Ana listen to when you…well I won’t go into that here.

I need to go now and give my life away to you again in book 2 Fifty Shades Darker. I hope I find out more about you Sir and why you are fifty shades of f**ked up. So until next time Mr Grey I bid you farewell.

I wish I was yours.

Funny facts after 3 months of blogging!

Today I’ve been blogging for 3 months! I enjoy it a lot – I only wish I had more time, because I feel I have so much to share with you. I just visited my stats site and thought it would be funny to share some of them with you, so here we go 🙂

Visits: 1,827 from 31 countries in 5 continents

Most visitors from: Denmark, United States and United Kingdom

Most popular topic: Camilla Läckberg … And hold on now, she’s 1,100 % more popular than Fifty Shades of Grey 🙂

When I decided to write this post, I googled funny facts about books and found these things. Hope you’ll enjoy them as much as I did.

The origin of the Latin word for book, liber, comes from the Romans, who used the thin layer found between the bark and the wood (the liber) before the times of parchment. The English word comes from the Danish word for book, bog, meaning birch tree, as the early people of Denmark wrote on birch bark.

The Library of Congress, Washington DC, USA contains 28 million books and has 532 miles of shelving. If you were driving at a constant 70 mph in a car it would take you just under 8 hours to pass them all. And thats without stopping to go to the toilet!

The best selling book in the UK is not Harry Potter, Twilight or Fifty Shades of Grey … but The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown.

Happy weekend to all of you and remember; when life gives you a hundred reasons to cry, show life that you have a thousand reasons to smile 🙂

Surprised … but I really like Fifty Shades of Grey now!

A couple of days ago I finished reading Fifty Shades of Grey – the 1st in the trilogy written by british author E.L. James. As in the rest of the World her books are very popular in Denmark. Fifty Shades of Grey was published August 31, 2012 and within 3 days 50,000 people had bought the book. That is quite a lot in a country with a population of 5,500,000!

Go to Goodreads to read my opinion about the book.

Visit the Danish Fifty Shades of Grey website.

You can buy the Danish editions on this website.

According to E.L. James the books will be made into a movie – or hopefully three. At this time there has only been casting rumors and wishes, but my personal opinion; Ian Somerhalder IS Christian Grey 🙂
