As I was working in a library when it came out, I was compelled to read some of it to see why it was so popular.xD We all have to start somewhere. I'm a bit of a literature snob but its refreshing to see someone agree its trash. By the middle of the book I was questioning my life's decisions as well. I couldn't get into the caning. *cringe face* I can not imagine doing that to someone I love. If anyone is needing a pick me up after reading that garbage watch gilbert godfrey reading fifty shades of grey. You'll feel a bit revived.
I want those minutes of my life back.
I also read Twilight for the same reason and I didn't think it was terrible. Not up my personal alley but not as bad as I thought it would be.
