Fifty Shades of Grey - E.L. James
If you're going to read this book, just make sure that you know going in that it's erotic literature. I also noticed in a few reviews that people who didn't like the book mainly critiqued the fact that they'd heard a lot of buzz about it, but had no idea what it was about. The content is explicit but I found it to be an entertaining read. I read over 300 pages yesterday afternoon, and finished off the remainder of the book this morning, so it's an easy and captivating read. And I can't wait for next book to arrive at the library, so I've decided to order to the set from Chapters. Yes, they're THAT addicting.
Edit: OMG. I just became a fan of the author on GoodReads and discovered that she has a playlist for each book on YouTube. One of my favourite things in books is when the characters listen to a particular song that I haven't heard before and I end up listening to it and the book just comes alive just that little bit more. I loved all of the references to opera songs, and it's amazing that they're all linked up in one spot! Plus, Tess of the d'Ubervilles has been on my TBR for a long, long time, and this book just reinforced my desire to read it sooner, rather than later.
