Grey

Yes, I know. I’m probably the last person in the world to jump on the Grey bandwagon. My friend loaned me these books in December and I finally decided the summer was a great time to read them. What else will I do besides drink at the pool on my free Saturdays?

I ran errands ALL day Sunday. Literally from 2PM – 8PM. I had to unload groceries and other items and clean a little. Finally around 11 I decided to just open the book. I figured I would just read the first two chapters. Around 3:20AM I finally put the book down. Page. Turner. That my friends (that haven’t read it) is an understatement.

I am officially obsessed with this book. I am over half way through with the first. Yesterday at work, it was all I could think about. I had to go home at lunch! I was chatting with a friend of mine, and we both agreed that it was a life-changer book.

I’ve had the passion with an ex that is in this book, but not quite to the extent that they have it. It does make me wonder if I’ll ever have that kind of passion again. There were a lot of things wrong with that relationship (that’s another post for another day) but ultimately I know that real love will trump that relationship ten fold.

With paragraphs like this, how can you not love the book? This isn’t even the rest of this particular occurrence! For you non Grey people, this is actually the first time they have any physical contact.

 I’m so obsessed with this book I’ve even started deciding on who I think should be cast in the movie. ha! Here are some of my choices.

Anastasia Steele

What we know about her: She’s about to graduate college, she has fair skin and brown hair, doesn’t wear makeup, wears mostly jeans and Converse, beautiful, innocent but seductive, doe-like eyes, virgin.

Matt Bomer
 
Ian-Somerhalder
 
Ian Somerhalder – He’s already gone on record saying that he would love to play Grey.

Jake Gyllenhaal – According to Digital Spy, when Gyllenhaal heard the news, he responded: ‘That’s super flattering. I mean, I have not heard that, but if that’s true then that’s a nice thing. It’s always nice to be considered.’ As for considering the role? ‘Yeah, of course! I always want to work, man, of course.’
Michael-Fassbender
 
Michael Fassbender – not sure if he is handsome enough?
 
Chris-Pine
 
Chris Pine – He took his name out of the running for the star-making Fifty Shades of Grey movie role during an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.
 
 
I think Emmy Rossum and Lily Collins could pull off a great Ana. As far as Christian goes, I think Chris Pine would be perfect. Mike Bomer is set to play Superman, and I couldn’t see the same person pulling off Christian. I really think that they will cast people that are less known for the movies.
 
The one thing that I don’t like about the book so far, is that whole “Laters, Baby” thing. UGH that annoys me because it’s so dumb. That, and when she’s describing where he touches her, she sometimes says “my sex”. Pet peeve. Let’s just call a spade a spade ok E.L.?
