So, I don’t know if it’s just my imagination, but there seems to have been awful lot of 50 Shades of Grey rumors this week. I know the story has been circling for months, ever since they announced the movie (…maybe that was even a year ago? Who can keep track these days, amiright?) but every blog I read had some story about it.
I only read the first 200 pages of the first book. I’m 20 and 50 Shades was not written for me. Personally I took offense to how silly the main girl was. (Is anyone really that naive?) I tried and tried my hardest to get into it and I couldn’t.
But hey, the book is totally popular! My 55 year-old-aunt who claims she “can’t read” because she hates reading so much loved them so much she bought a Kindle and read them like, four more times. So kudos to E.L. James for inspiring non-readers to get literary!
Me? Well, I’m just excited to see which one of my hollywood crushes 50 Shades of Grey casts as Christian. As I said up top, I couldn’t care less about the chick, but I will pay anything to see Ian Somerhalder on the big screen (aside from that time he played a teen male prostitute, ’cause that was just sad).
So here are my favorite tweets about the books, the rumors and everything in between!!!
Think of something you want me to make a list about? Tweet it to me @origToriqua or send it via email at email@example.com
Keep reading, y’all!!!
