Hello, lovely ladies 🙂
So? How was your week? Read anything interesting? I bit the bullet this week and dipped my toes into something a bit darker. Go me!
But first, let’s look at some news, shall we?
It seems that filming is wrapping up for all but the few actors heading to France for the Honeymoon scenes, and evidently, the reportedly close-knit crew is finding it hard to say goodbye to the FSOG saga. Thanks to Susan I have this pic from @fsog_greysessed that hints at the camaraderie on set.
This week also saw some Red Room pics as Christian and Ana further explored the decadent world of BDSM…
Just Jared reports on Amelia and Dakota sharing a meal amidst the rumour mill’s upsetting stories of Jamie and Dakota being more than just co-stars. Believe it or not, but there are actually people called “Damies” who are rooting for the dissolution of Jamie’s marriage so that “Christian and Ana” can finally be together. So sad. I for one hope the marriage stays strong. If you consider the real-life logistics of filing a movie like this, plus all the crazy rumors, you can only imagine what a trying time this must have been for a committed relationship.
Lastly, the 50 Shades of Grey Support page on Facebook shared this beautiful poster:
Dramatic, huh? 😉
Before we start with the book club portion, I’ve been asked to put my Goodreads star ratings along with my reviews here on the blog. You should see it as gold stars at the bottom of the book cover pics. I’m going to try my level best to remember to add these, but if I forget, please forgive me 🙂 You could always check them out by following me on Goodreads.
This week I read:
Rebel and Rogue by Callie Hart, book one and two in the Dead Man’s Ink series, was the darker series I read after I managed to pull on my big girl panties. Book one did not disappoint. The subject matter, though potentially graphic, was treated very carefully, and for once, didn’t cause me any nightmares. But that does not mean that it wasn’t gritty and, at times, scary. Book two, on the other hand, left me with a small complaint. I had an issue with the overall plausibility of the plot. Some very dubious decisions by the main characters made me believe in the story just a little bit less. I will be finishing the series, but will be looking at something lighter first. Take note that book one ends on a small cliffie. Luckily the series is complete.
Currently I’m reading:
Always by Nina Lane, the fifth and final book of the Spiral of Bliss series.
On my shelf I have:
The Bourbon Thief by Tiffany Reisz. I’m super stoked to find out what new intrigues come from Reisz’s fertile imagination.
These pics are taken from the Goodreads site and the links are NOT live.
Have a great weekend, girls. I shall see ya’ll next week!
