Everyone seems to be reading 50 Shades of Grey, and yes I'll admit it, I bought the book too! Sure, it was great for the first night of reading, I read through the first 100 pages in no time at all, but I've been trying to get past it and unlike everyone else, I just can't seem to get through it; I have no will to pick that book up. Maybe it's just not interesting to me, (or maybe it's not the best of writing that factors in), but hey, these fashion and fragrance books are a lot more enticing and are definitely right up my alley.
