The Writing Rose

Romance fiction in most genres are my favourite reads. Having travelled a fair bit in my misspent years, I'm now a solo-mum to a VERY energetic and adventurous little one and I've turned my spare time into reliving some past travel adventures and expanding on them to write entertaining (hopefully) works of fiction. Maybe they'll be published, maybe not. Either way I'm enjoying where my imagination can take me.

Fifty Shades of Grey

Fifty Shades of Grey - E.L. James I'm sorry, but I just don't understand what all those readers who have been raving about this book could possibly have enjoyed. I seriously could not get past page 15 and it took me 3 attempts to get that far. I bought the book because of all the hype, but the writing style was just boring to me. I read a lot of different types of genres and while this story had a spicy allure I couldn't be bothered to read far enough to get to those parts.

The story began as an easy enough read, but there was no gripping prose or event that kept me enticed enough to want to turn the page to find out what happened next.

I've read a lot of indi authors that have not had the advantage of exposure to the level this book has received who, in my opinion, have a more engaging writing style and story plot.
