Many Shades A Let-Down

So me and four of my friends started a book club last month. Initially we had planned to meet at Vuvu's place but something came, so we met at a restaurant. Apart from one of the club's members pulling out on the day, all went perfect! So the four of us had our first, official book club meeting. Zisanda chose the ever so controversial 'Fifty Shades of Grey" by E.L James lol.

If you haven't read the book yet, I hope this doesn't spoil it for you. I won't bore you with the details. but will share this lil bit: we all found it to be lacking a solid storyline and details; Anastasia's response to sex and this whole new world seemed unrealistically perfect; the author should have done more to make the reader understand what made Christian the way he is; though the author did say she was inspired by the Twilight saga to write this, we felt it was more than just inspiration, Fifty Shades seems like a rip off. Take the Ana character compared to Bella, they're both virgins from broken families; Christian compared to Edward, cold and heartless and part of a weird and discreet world.

Pamela thought the book would've been more fun if Kate had turned to be on of Christian's ex subs.

I'll leave it there. now here are some pics  we took

my meal and Fifty

did I mention that I had a gigantic pimple just at the top of my upper lip?

  1. Awww! Sweet man. I love it when women come together.

  2. You look gorgeous (as usual) I love the book club idea!If I wasn't a student I would start one with my girls too.You know if you didn't mention the pimple on the lip-I wouldn't have noticed anything!

    1. Hopefully you'll start your own as soon as you're done with your studies! a reading nation is a winning nation

  3. You look lovely and the pimple is barely noticable! I love book clubs! You've inspired me to start my own!!! What a great idea!

    1. I'm glad I inspired you to start your own! it's so much fun

  4. You're gorgeous!
