Never Reading That One

Saturday, September 15, 2012

I'm slowly failing Photo A Day Challenge, I know.  It's just when classes do not want to be nice to you, they aren't.  But I do have a few hours before I have to go back to memorizing speeches and studying for tests.  I have made up my mind to also join yet another challenge, 30 Day Book Challenge from Jude at In Between, this one about books (so you won’t think I am abandoning my life-long passion).  This is a site about books, is it not?    

I do remember I have offered you extra entries to all the contests this month.  Therefore, if you play along with the challenge too, then you get three extra entry points.  That’s right, three points! 

All you have to do to get those extra points is tell me in the comments, what book haven't you read and have no intention of doing so?

Book I haven’t read and have no intention of ever reading

Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L. James
When literature student Anastasia Steele is drafted to interview the successful young entrepreneur Christian Grey for her campus magazine, she finds him attractive, enigmatic and intimidating. Convinced their meeting went badly, she tries to put Grey out of her mind - until he happens to turn up at the out-of-town hardware store where she works part-time. 
The unworldly, innocent Ana is shocked to realize she wants this man, and when he warns her to keep her distance it only makes her more desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her - but on his own terms. 
Shocked yet thrilled by Grey's singular erotic tastes, Ana hesitates. For all the trappings of success – his multinational businesses, his vast wealth, his loving adoptive family – Grey is a man tormented by demons and consumed by the need to control. When the couple embarks on a passionate, physical and daring affair, Ana learns more about her own dark desires, as well as the Christian Grey hidden away from public scrutiny.
Can their relationship transcend physical passion? Will Ana find it in herself to submit to the self-indulgent Master? And if she does, will she still love what she finds?
Erotic, amusing, and deeply moving, the Fifty Shades Trilogy is a tale that will obsess you, possess you, and stay with you forever.--Goodreads
4 Reasons Why I Am Not Reading This One

1. Fanfiction of Twilight by Stephenie Meyer.  This seems like a very adult book and the target audience to Twilight happens to be 12 and up.  And do we need anymore Twilight related things?  Twilight was a great book.  The end.

2. Erotic romance.  I don't really like reading romances to begin with because of all the cheese, so I'm probably never touching this one.

3. Abusive relationship.  I don't know much about the book but I have heard lots of things about the content of the novel.  Abusive, romantic relationships definitely turn me off.

4. There are so many reasons to make fun of this book.  Hilarious videos and reviews.  I feel like if I read this novel, I won't laugh as hard as I have when reading all those awesome takes on the book.

What book have you never read and never will?
