Would you read the fifty shades of grey series and add it to your blog? Even being that it has strong sexual content.
I've had some friends of mine say I should read them. I've been using my reading to blog what I've read to keep track of what books I've already read. If I was to read the books should I write what I think of them on my blog?
I've been going around and around about this for a few weeks now. Not sure of what to do even though my friends say read them.
Any ideas would help me.
I think it really depends on what you are comfortable reading. If reading erotic literature is something that you feel uncomfortable than I would advise against reading it or publishing it to your blog. I also think that you may want consider what you are comfortable with posting and having others read. If you can't say that you feel comfortable with writing about an erotic book and reviewing it on your blog then don't. Hope this helps!
I can only agree with what Sarah advises. Nothing more to add.
I agree that it all comes down to personal preference. If this type of book is something that you don't normally read or don't feel comfortable with then I wouldn't do it. Personally I wouldn't recommend these books, not because I don't read erotica or wouldn't recommend erotica, but I had tried to read the first one and didn't care for it.
Fifty Shades - is what it is - an erotic read with a whole lot of hype behind it.
If you dont usually read erotica then you'll probably want to scrub your brain clean after reading Fifty. It's not a book that's particularly well written either, so the main reason for reading is the curiosity factor to see what the fuss is about. If you are a serious reader with a huge TBR pile and you dont usually read erotica - then save several hours of your life and read something else.
I know everyone has their own tastes, but I have to agree with what Grace says!
Lots of my friends read it because they wanted to see what the hype was about.
As for me, I started reading it and got to about the fifth page. I haven't read it since. It could be because romance and erotica are my least favorite genres- I will read them, but if the story doesn't hook me on the first couple of pages, I go on to something else, usually horror. :)
Start out by reading the sample and see what you think- my own personal choice is I would not pay 9.99 for the e-book.
I would say that as long as erotica (BDSM style) isn't offensive to you, go for it. I reviewed all 3 books on my site if you want to learn more without spoiling it. They were not super well written, but certainly entertaining.
Don't listen to any reader who hasn't at least read the first 6 chapters. It takes a little bit to get going, but if you can get past that hurdle, its a fun ride.
Did you enjoy Fifty Shades of Grey?
Check out my review of Bared to You by Sylvia Day, which has been called "the next Fifty Shades".
I started reading Fifty Shakes of Grey on a recommentaion from a friend and lasted about one hundered pages. I am not offended by the subject matter, but I thought it was very poorly written, the characters were not engaging and the sex scenes made me cringe (and I am no prude). Of course, it's up to you what you feel comfortable with, but I honestly think that there are much better books out there that you could be promoting.
What is the attraction of this book? Several of my co-workers are passing this book around. Prior to this, I ad never heard of it.
Personal Preference all the way on this one. However, for me, I love this book and I'm not even finished with the first one yet. Ha! Like you, I was conflicted and wasn't sure if I would like it, or if I could even get into it. But after much advice from everyone else, I tried it and haven't been able to put it down since. AND...your husband will definitely reap the benefits! HA!
