50 Shades of Ew
One little book has put the entire city of BlueBell up in arms. That book is none other than the most talked about piece of fiction of the year, “50 Shades of Grey.” The “Twilight” fanfic turned novel was April’s BlueBell Book Club pick. However, we had to cancel this month’s event after people were complaining about the book’s vulgarity. Now Dash DeWitt is no prude but when I opened this novel and started reading I nearly choked on my sweet tea. It wasn’t the pornographic content that hit me, but rather it was the idea that people around the country have been devouring this book at a rapid pace. It’s total trash! I love literature more than anything. The thought of curling up on my chaise, wrapped in a throw from CB2 (I love their website!), and reading a good book sounds like Heaven on earth. But “50 Shades of Grey” is not that book. “50 Shades of Grey” is just plain bad. Although it does give me hope. Perhaps, I need to take out my novel from under the bed in my guest room and give it a second look. I’ve been working on that thing for years! Because seriously, if “50 Shades of Grey” can get published, perhaps “A Cool Breeze” (my novel) can as well.
