As a crazed reader I read everything! From the Sports magazines to whatever is available. Guess that is why I love! my kindle. I can carry hundreds of books so I am never without a goodread. Tha being said I am always reading and hunting magazines and online recommendation sights. So.....I was intrigued by the buzz about FIFTY SHADES OF GREY. Primarily because I have read some Twilight fan fiction and thought it was pretty good, as well as I have actually written some. So I bought the book and sstarted reading it and for the first few chapters I kept waiting for a vampire to appear. Not goon happen! The author took the THEMES in Twilight and went with them. I thought I would just read one and that would be it, but after I got pulled into the first, I immediatley bought the rest of the trilogy. The author is a screen writer in London and she does an excellent job of building a story and by the middle of the second book the erotica part of the story really starts to be replaced by the emotional turmoil the characters go through. I personally loved the books and read them non stop until I was finished. For the adult reader I can't say enough about them. Definitly not a YA!
