Fifty Shades Trilogy




I've read so many bad reviews of the 'Fifty Shades' trilogy but I think the author must have done something right considering the books are a sell-out.  I haven't read the books myself but they are definitely on my To-Be-Read list.  More out of curiosity than anything.  


There has been a lot of criticism concerning its 'fan-fiction' origins and the bad writing.  Some have labelled it 'porn'. Well, it has obviously stirred the literary world.  


And I think the bad reviews have only added to the mystery surrounding these books.  When you boil it down, it's the sales that matter in the end.  Especially for the author.


I thought this was a fair review so I am sharing it.  Thank you to Karen A Wyle.

  1. I'm sorry. I do not agree with what you said about its the sales that matter. What you write should matter to you, especially if it is something that might influence someone in a negative way.

  3. I agree with you! In the end sales do matter because obviously what the authors write does matter because that is why they wrote it right? Anyway I haven't read this series either and hope that we can do a buddy read on shut up & read if you want of course! :)
