Hello there, lovely ladies 🤗

How was your week? My few days of rest flew by, but it was lovely to have a little break. 👍🏻

Of course, since the teaser trailer dropped, I’ve come across some fun edits. The first is the teaser accompanied by The Weeknd’s Nothing Without You:

And here’s a clip featuring some text from the book:

This one is completely unrelated to Fifty but funny nonetheless. I bet the wedded folks amongst us can relate. Thank you, Sharon for the marriage porn:

LOL! 😂😂

This week I read:

Him by Sabrina Bowen and Elle Kennedy, book 1 in the Him series, as mentioned last week, was my first forray into the world of M/M. I thoroughly enjoyed it and the romantic aspect was a pleasant surprise considering the theme.

Currently I’m reading:

 

Raw Heat by Cherrie Lynn, Book 3 in the Larson Brothers series and King of Code by C. D. Reiss.

On my shelf I have:

Dear Bridget, I Want You by Penelope Ward and Vi Keeland. I love this duo so I’m looking forward to this one.

Who says losing your head over a girl is a bad idea? Not this guy…

LOL!  😂😂

Have a beautiful week, girls. Drop by and let us know what you’re reading.

Hello there, lovely ladies 🤗

How was your week? Mine was nuts, but luckily I’m enjoying a short break now. Whoo-hoo! #LoveSchoolHolidays 😉

Last week I mentioned Goodreads’ 2018 release date for Freed from Christian’s POV, but Erika’s site says “sometime in 2017”. This week saw her bidding “adieu” to the NY offices of Penguin Random House (her publishers) on Instagram to much speculation around the next instalment of Grey. Perhaps we WILL see it before the year is out after all. 🤔

Also, I posted a short teaser followed by another clip which I believed was the actual trailer. Apparently I jumped the gun.

The longer clip was actually the teaser trailer and the shorter clip, well, I guess was the teaser’s teaser trailer?? 😂 It’s interesting to note that this time the teaser trailer is much, much longer than it was for the other two movies. Maybe it’s because the film is already in the can, or it could be because of the flagging interest in the coming Freed movie. Either way, I’m very curious to know what’s up with the wedding dress hanging from the chandelier in the opening scene. That’s just plain weird! Here it is again if you missed it the first time:

And if you’ve been following the Seattle Independent Press site, don’t forget to check out the latest developments. 

Then, adult toy company, Lovehoney launched their Fifty Shades Freed collection.

Lots of deep purple fun to be had, it seems. 😉

This week I read:

 

Neanderthal Seeks Human by Penny Reid, book 1 in the Knitting in the City series was another spectacular book from this offbeat author. A smart romance indeed, but, as a side note, the bedroom antics were very lite – implied rather than explicit. Nevertheless, I went onto my favourites shelf because it literally made me laugh out loud. 👍🏻

Fallen Heir by Erin Watt, book 4 in The Royals series was an excellent addition to this range. I enjoyed seeing the middle Royal’s intense struggle to find himself.

Currently I’m reading:

Him by Sabrina Bowen and Elle Kennedy, book 1 in the Him series. Yes, ladies. You are not seeing things. I’ve taken the plunge into the world of M/M. Let’s see how I go…. 😳

On my shelf I have:

Neanderthal Marries Human by Penny Reid, book 1.5 in the Knitting in the City series.

Katherine shared this delightful little bit of brave humanity…

Whahahahaha! 😂😂😂

Until next time, girls. Have a stunning reading week.

Here it is! The first Freed trailer teaser…

Hi lovely ladies 🤗

Here is the official movie poster:

And the first official trailer teaser:

Any thoughts, girls? 😉

Hello there, lovely ladies 🤗

Let me start off by saying good luck to all our US friends on the Florida coast. Let’s hope Irma’s rage is spent without too much damage. Please stay safe! 😳

Then, as I speculated last week, the hype for Freed is markedly subdued. The trailer teaser came and went with little hurrah. Nevertheless, here it is:

I’m still waiting for word on when we’ll see the actual trailer.

And as the Fifty-craze cools down, Game of Thrones news sizzles, not least of which, of course, is the melding of GOT and FSOG. I give you Fifty Shades of (Daenerys and Jon =) Jonerys:

I guess it was inevitable. LOL! 😂

Seeing as September saw the launch of Passionflix, the new book-turn-to-movie streaming company, we got a glimpse into Aftershock and Afterburn’s trailer, the film adaptation of Sylvia Day’s duo.

I’m very curious to get some feedback regarding this service and the quality of the adaptations of our beloved books. It makes me wonder, if Passionflix is set to develop this corner of the market, will they be selling their wares to the likes of Netflix and Co? Has anyone bought a subscription yet? Please share your thoughts if you have. I bet we ALL want to know. 

This week I read:

 

Beneath the Truth by Meghan March, book 7 in the Beneath series was good, but it didn’t quite reach Dirty Girl standard. I can’t say why, just a little something missing from the magic.

Wrecked by J. B. Salsbury was a struggle for me. I fought my way through the pages. Despite likable characters and a good ol’ tear jerking turn in the plot, I could not find my joy with this tale. Again, not anything I can put my finger on, but it definitely didn’t hold my attention until close to the bitter end.

Currently I’m reading:

Neanderthal Seeks Human by Penny Reid, book 1 in the Knitting in the City series.

On my shelf I have:

Fallen Heir by Erin Watt, book 4 in The Royals series.

That’s it from me for this weekend, girls. I’ll leave you with this sweet treat from Katherine:

I tag ALL of you, but especially Crystal! LOL! 😂😉

Have a good week!

Hello there, lovely ladies 🤗

Happy Father’s Day to my Australian friends and especially to my hubby. Our daughter is blessed to have you in her life. 😍 And we’re celebrating the start of a new season! Happy Spring (or autumn), depending on where you are. Personally I’m delighted to see our deciduous trees butting with fresh green colours and flowers dotting the gardens I drive by. It’s my favourite season! 🎉 Plus, the month will hopefully bring us Freed’s trailer. Anyone know when we’ll get a glimpse into what the final movie will bring? Also, I see on Goodreads that Grey’s POV of Darker is only expected next year. I wonder why. No doubt Erika and Hollywood will rake it in on the last film, but even among us diehard fans I can FEEL the interest waning. If it was me I’d have released Christian’s Darker around the middle of this year. But what do I know? Well. Nothing to do but wait. 😜

This clip is unrelated to Fifty but when I saw it it made me smile. A delightful cuddling tutorial ala John Stamos…

Cute, huh? 😉

This week I read:

 

Grin and Beard It and Beard Science by Penny Reid, book 2 and 3 of The Winston Brothers series. Again I LOVED both. Such beautiful language. I’ll be working my way through the whole, delicious range.

Currently I’m reading:

 

Wrecked by J.B. Salsbury and Beneath the Truth by Meghan March, book 7 in the Beneath series.

On my shelf I have:


Fallen Heir by Erin Watt, book 4 in The Royals series.

I’ll leave you with this little gem. It right up my sense of humour’s alley… 


😂😂 See, Katherine? You can tell your boys I’m not ALWAYS corrupting their mum! 👍🏻

Have a wonderful weekend, girls! Chat soon.
