Fifty Shades of Something

1 Comment

Just got back from vacation on Saturday. The ocean was beautiful and we had a great time just relaxing (and eating a lot!).

A few things on my mind:

1. Did anyone besides me dislike Fifty Shades of Grey? It wasn’t the explicit content that got to me, rather the character portrayals. Anastasia annoyed me with her naivete and blatant dependence on Christian. The character of Christian seemed to represent every woman’s ex-boyfriend (ex for a reason). Their back-and-forth relationship simply frustrated me and because of that, I couldn’t finish it.

2. I’m currently reading Yoga Bitch by Suzanne Morrison (memoir). Just another one of those books that I wanted to start this past semester but never had the time. Stay tuned for the review…

3. Sarah Dessen’s books are getting new covers! Dessen is, and has been, my first and foremost favorite author. I love all versions of her book covers even though I have probably the oldest ones since I bought them so long ago. It’s interesting to compare their evolution. Read her blog here:

5. On an unrelated note, I’m in love with the new John Mayer album. It’s quite different from his previous stuff – more of a country sound – but his lyrics and voice remain soulful and stirring. Favorite track is A Face to Call Home.
