Fifty Shades of Hot

From the beginning to end, this book had me at the edge of my seat. One hand holding the book open, the other hand reaching for my underwear drawer in case I needed a change. Some of those–ALL of the ‘intimate’ scenarios were extremely hot. Funny enough, when I first heard about the book, and from Wendy Williams no less, she said it was “mommy porn.” She described it as women who were dominatrices. Or at least that is what I gathered from what she was saying. That is NOT what the book is about.  I finally decided to buy this book and give it the once over. I’ve been engrossed in sci-fi for the last year and it was time for a change. Oh,my! Ana Steele is a strong female character with a “Bella Swan” weakness to her. She has that whole, “he’s beautiful and too good for me but I’ll never listen and do everything I can to sabotage our relationship” thing going for her. Christian Grey. Well, he just makes me forget I’m a Christian. The way E. L. James portrays this character, the sex appeal and vulnerability just oozes from the pages. I can almost see this man when I’m reading. I recommend this book to anyone who wants a good laugh and dirty secret. haha. You never know when Christian is going to break out the silk tie, and where you’ll be reading when he does. I was in church the first time. Don’t worry. I prayed extra hard for forgiveness. But I couldn’t wait to get home to read some more. 😉

    Yours is the first review I’ve actually read on this book — I had no idea what it was before. Even though it sounds good, I’m one of those people who get embarrased for book and movie characters. My face would be ted for a week!

      I’m one of those people, too! haha. I really thought that was just me being a goober. I had to stop reading sometimes because I was embarrassed and in movies…I totally fast forward if it gets too awkward. Thanks for stopping by!

    I’ve heard so much about this book, but only recently have I heard enough to make me want to read it. If I ever get the book in my hands I won’t pass up to opportunity to read it, but I probably won’t go looking for it at the bookstore just yet.

Thinking about it?

It is about the Day to Day thoughts we receive that can be accompanied with actions. I believe that the Holy Ghost doesn't only prompt us in big decision making but also in the very small ones. As we begin to note down the small daily prompting we receive, we begin to notice clearly what spiritual promptings are like and how they can be recognized in the huge decision processes. It is a learning process. One must understand the techniques of little addition and subtractions before understanding that of algebraic equations. My goal is to expressly apply the small daily inspirations I receive from the scriptures and or spontaneous inspirations into actions that can benefit me and others to becoming better children of a Heavenly Father. First think about it and act upon the will of God.
