Fifty Shades of Grey

So I've been hearing all the gossip floating about the erotically-acclaimed fiction book Fifty Shades of Grey by author E.L. James. It's been dubbed the most recent "mommy porn" book out there being that it's recommended for the "older crowd".  It's the first installment of a trilogy (with Fifty Shades Darker as the second volume and Fifty Shades Freed as the third) which follows the sordid relationship between innocent, new college graduate Anastasia Steele and the young, dark,and handsome business mogul Christian Grey. The series has been reported to have sold around 10 million copies worldwide. I'm not going to lie, with it's buzz all over the news and internet I am definitely intrigued to read it. I love a good book about the loss of innocence, power, and SEX!!! Of course with popularity comes criticism. The books are being criticized for lacking literary content and having extremely explicit sexual scenes. Well, once I read it I'll make up my own mind thank you very much. I just ordered the book two days ago and will definitely post about it after I've read it.
