Fifty Shades of Grey - E.L. James

When literature student Anastasia Steele goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating. The unworldly, innocent Ana is startled to realize she wants this man and, despite his enigmatic reserve, finds she is desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her, too—but on his own terms.
 
Shocked yet thrilled by Grey’s singular erotic tastes, Ana hesitates. For all the trappings of success—his multinational businesses, his vast wealth, his loving family—Grey is a man tormented by demons and consumed by the need to control. When the couple embarks on a daring, passionately physical affair, Ana discovers Christian Grey’s secrets and explores her own dark desires.

Erotic, amusing, and deeply moving, the Fifty Shades Trilogy is a tale that will obsess you, possess you, and stay with you forever.

This book is intended for mature audiences.

                                                               

 

Once upon a time I once said that I would never read this book, and a part of me wishes I had never read it. But I kinda sorta liked it. it reminded me of bad reality shows, you know its shit but you just have to keep watching it because it’s entertaining, that what fifty shades of grey was to me, utter and complete shit but I had to keep reading because I was somewhat entertained. What really made me dislike this book was the fucking idiotic and completely brain dead main character that goes by the Anastasia Steele, this bitch was so dumb that pretty much every chapter I wanted to strangle her. She never stood up for herself and just let Christian treat her anyway he wanted, never said anything until she was miles away from him. And then she constantly tried to use his past against him, then only time I was actually happy with her was the end but it didn't last for long because he asked him to do it, UGH! I really just hate her!  Then to add fuel to the fire we have “I’m fifty shades of fucked up” Christian Grey.  Who I have a love hate relationship with, I hate that I love him because I really just fucking hate him!  He is controlling, bipolar, and fucked up, that’s why I hate him, but I can’t help but feel a little bit of love for him when he does those sweet little things, and he is just carefree and actually acts his age. But the little love I feel cannot compare to the overwhelming amount of hate that I have for him. This book made me want to rip my hair out but I just kept coming back because I just needed to know what would happen next. Which is also why I will be reading the next two books in this series, I must be as stupid as Anastasia Steele to pick up the next to books!

So True!
So True!
SPOILER ALERT!

The Goddess Inheritance

The Goddess Inheritance - Aimee Carter

Love or life.
Henry or their child.
The end of her family or the end of the world.
Kate must choose.


During nine months of captivity, Kate Winters has survived a jealous goddess, a vengeful Titan and a pregnancy she never asked for. Now the Queen of the Gods wants her unborn child, and Kate can't stop her--until Cronus offers a deal.

In exchange for her loyalty and devotion, the King of the Titans will spare humanity and let Kate keep her child. Yet even if Kate agrees, he'll destroy Henry, her mother and the rest of the council. And if she refuses, Cronus will tear the world apart until every last god and mortal is dead.

With the fate of everyone she loves resting on her shoulders, Kate must do the impossible: find a way to defeat the most powerful being in existence, even if it costs her everything.

Even if it costs her eternity.

                                                

 

From the very page of the Goddess Test I was hooked then Goddess Interrupted was just as good if not better than its predecessor, so when I finally got around to picking this one up I expected it be just as good…
This one was the worst in the series and it sucks because it’s the last book! I fell for this series because I am a sucker for mythology especially Greek, and the fact that the Persephone myth is one of my favorites. I enjoyed Carter's take on the myth and quickly found myself falling for the characters. Kate was my all-time favorite character because she was strong, independent, fiery, selfless, and she didn't take no for an answer. Even in the novella the Goddess Hunt, she stood up to Walter and everybody else, and I loved her for it, which means a lot because I have a hard time finding I female lead character that I honestly, truly love.
In this book the Kate that I have come to love completely wilted away. While I can understand the way she acted the way she did and her decisions and actions, it made this book in my opinion horrible. Some things Kate did and said made me stop for a second and ask “are you fucking stupid?” or “are you kidding me right now?” after about a hundred pages I was tired of her, and desperately wanted to read from another person’s POV. And another thing I found that made this book so annoying was how redundant it was. I mean Kate I get it you love henry you’re not going to cheat on him, and we all know that you and James are just friends; I got all that after the first time you said it IN THE FIRST BOOK no need for you constantly repeat over the span of this book, I GET IT!
Now onto Ava, at the beginning of the book I was completely angry with her just like Kate, but unlike Kate I got over it quickly. Ava was doing all those things to save her husband, when the person you love is in danger you will do absolutely anything to protect them no matter what, but Kate couldn’t see that even though she was willing to do anything to protect her family. That was another reason why I just couldn’t like Kate; even though she repeatedly said that she understood why Ava did the things she did, but she just couldn’t forgive her but then at the end of the book she is willing to visit Cronus every once and a while just to let him know that he is not alone after he killed Ava and millions of people! That was something I just could not understand. The other characters in this book where kind of dull in my eyes also. Henry was annoying, James was alright, Dylan was a dickhead (but he made me laugh), Diana was eh, Walter was eww (he is basically a villain), Calliope was an evil, psychotic bitch (but once I stopped to think about it I could totally understand her hatred towards Kate), the only character in this whole entire book that I truly loved was Milo!
This book let me down so much but I am glad that I read it because all the other books in this series are still absolute favorites of mine. Even though I did not enjoy this book there are still a few things that I liked about it, so it was all BAD just most of it.

My Childhood was calling...

Ghosts Don't Ride Wild Horses - Debbie Dadey, John Steven Gurney, Marcia Thornton Jones

 

The day I finished this book was also the day that I finished my first year of college. This last semester I spent the months analyzing poems, short stories, and plays, so to celebrate not having to read those things again... at least not until next semester, I picked up a book so easy my six year old nephew could read it. I remember reading these books in elementary and middle school, and i never knew how much I missed them until I finished this one and then another and then I got two more from the library. These books are about 70 pages long with pictures on every other page. Of course when I was younger I would have given it 10 stars but now they only get a three. Even though this book is about third graders I enjoyed their ridiculous stories and adventures and it brought back so many memories!

To Be Read Pile

  I have gone a little overboard on my book buying this year; I mean I’m almost embarrassed to say that I have bought over one hundred books... Never in my life have I ever bought that many, and never in my life have I ever had so many unread books. I feel ashamed when I look at my bookshelves and see that most of them are unread, so to shrink my unread pile I have decided to participate in Project Ten Book! And the books I have picked out are...

 

1. Sea of Monsters by Rick Riordan

 

 

2. Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi

 

 

3. Rumors by Anna Godbersen
