14 Thought's on 50 Shades of Grey

I don't really even know where to begin this one...

I know I'm like the 5th million blogger to write about this but I just kind of really need to get my thoughts out there on this one. And since I don't really know anyone in real life I can discuss it with, you get to read all about it. Unless of course you decide to just skip this one. Which is okay with me. Kind of.

1) The writing wasn't quite as awful as I thought it was going to be...

2) The author is in serious need of a thesaurus. How many can one character say "murmur" "jeez" and "oh my", seriously?

3) Also, commas. You missed a lot of them.

4) I find it seriously hard to believe that a college girl didn't have a cell phone and a computer. It's 2012, ya know?

5) Last but not least: Dear authors of the world, please research an area before you write a novel set there.

6) It's pretty obvious this was a fan fiction.

7) Naive alert: I didn't even know half the "toys" they used were real things.

8) Likewise, people actually do that shit? I mean, no judgement but I might have some questions for you.

9) Also, people read this book in public? You, public reading friends, have guts.

10) Older people saying they've read this book, and couldn't put it down, just makes me really awkward. Sorry, but I just don't need to know that.

11) A movie, out of this? Really, Hollywood? Unless they changed A LOT of what happens in the book, it'll end up in the back room of Family Video. Just sayin'

12) On that note... Wentworth Miller for Christian? Anyone?

13) No? I'll also take Ryan Gosling. Though that might be too much to handle for me.

14) Also, the entire time, whenever Taylor was mentioned all I could think of was Hector Elizondo in The Princess Diaries - he might be getting too old for the role now though.

That's all I have for now friends... if you've read it let me know so we can shamelessly talk about it.
