I don’t understand all this hype about Fifty Shades of Grey. I’ve talked to some of my friends who are also trying to finish this book, and they are in the same dire situation! This book bores me, like how Twilight bored me. The difference is, I made myself finish the entire Twilight series (it may have taken some Red Bull, but hey, it worked), but I can’t make myself go past a few pages of Fifty Shades. Every time I tell myself  “girl, you bought this for $10.

Midwestern Nick and New Yorker Amy, both writers, meet at a party in NYC. They fall in love, get married, and are super happy until they both lose their jobs due to the recession. They move to the Midwest, where Nick uses Amy’s money to open up a bar, called The Bar. On their 5th anniversary, she disappears; all signs point to him being the murderer. That’s not true. The best part is that you get to read the novel from both point of views, and learn about both of their dark, twisted, effed up loved up relationship. I never knew what to expect next, and that’s what I loved.
