Books I read in July:
Fahrenheit 451by Ray Bradbury
Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L. James
Misogyny: The World’s Oldest Prejudiceby Jack Holland
1Q84, #1 by Haruki Murakami
So I say “read” but I skimmed a lot of Fifty Shades of Grey. I thought it was worse than Twilight.
Here are a few quotes:
" His voice is warm and husky like dark melted chocolate fudge caramel… or something." What?!
" “Aargh!” I cry as I feel a weird pinching sensation deep inside me as he rips through my virginity. He stills, gazing down at me, his eyes bright with ecstatic triumph. "
" He lunges at me, pushing me against the wall of the elevator. Before I know it, he’s got both of my hands in one of his in a vice-like grip above my head, and he’s pinning me to the wall using his hips. Holy shit. His other hand grabs my ponytail and yanks down, bringing my face up, and his lips are on mine. "
Not appealing to me. I’m not a fan of all the “inner goddess” nonsense either, too much second-hand embarrassment.
I enjoyed the other 3 books.
