Like many avid readers, I have jumped on the Fifty Shades trilogy band wagon. I'm about two-thirds of the way through the final book and I'm really feeling the need to disembark or throw up in my mouth a little bit. Really, I'm pretty fed up with the mind-blowing sex with the tragically naive, beautiful (and she doesn't even know it) girl. I'll finish the trilogy. I've put in the time but it's really pissing me off right now. I think I'm going on my third week of not reading this book - wasted time indeed. If I had the physical book I would have tossed it across the room on several occasions. Unfortunately this is not possible with the ereader. One strike in its favor I tell you. Who knew almost 1000 pages of reading about the hot, damaged guy in love with the innocent, vulnerable girl could make me start looking for sharp objects?
Today: I plan on writing my summer manifesto inspired by Ms. Ali Edwards. I'm only running a few weeks late. I also plan on coloring more than ONE image today. I have exactly 16 days to finish 55 cards - which roughly evens out to three to four cards per day. I also plan on treating myself to a big cup of coffee, blueberry muffin, and possibly finishing at least one book. Hope everyone's having a lovely Tuesday. Until then...
P.S. For those of you that LOVE the trilogy - you know who you are - I'd like to apologize for my remarks. I hope this doesn't take away from your own reading experience. Please don't let my views deter you from reading the books either, remember you're dealing with a girl who pinned this and is wondering if she can make a sign for when she leaves the house. Nutcake, indeed.
