Fifty Shades Darker
Fifty Shades Darker | E L James
Romantic, liberating and totally addictive, the Fifty Shades trilogy will obsess you, possess you, and stay with you for ever ...Daunted by the dark secrets of the tormented young entrepreneur Christian Grey, Ana Steele has broken off their relationship to start a new career with a US publishing house. But desire for Grey still dominates her every waking thought, and when he proposes a new arrangement, she cannot resist. Soon she is learning more about the harrowing past of her damaged, driven and demanding Fifty Shades than she ever thought possible. But while Grey wrestles with his inner demons, Ana must make the most important decision of her life. And it's a decision she can only make on her own ...

Not going to become a classical piece of fiction anytime soon, but compared to the first installment, Fifty Shades of Grey, this one does have more character development, plot and more of an overall storyline.

Ana (who still drives me crazy with her indecisiveness) has found her way back into Christian‘s arms. Their love story just continues to grow as does Ana‘s career. Drama at every corner for these two!

It was okay, but nothing special.

suzie.reads I've never read a worse piece of writing than the fifty shades trilogy. I found it appalling but my god Jamie Dornan in the films ❤ 3mo
Megabooks So agree @suzie.reads !! 3mo

Oh sigh...

Recently read the first in this trilogy so I thought I might as well give the second one it‘s listen.

I will admit to liking this one better than the previous one. More of a plot I suppose.

Something to do while I walk. About forty percent through.

Up front: I have not seen this film, but I read the books. Had to know what the fuss was about.

I would caption this seen as follows.

A pick as this book met my expectations exactly:

✔️Lots of lip-biting and hands running through hair
✔️Highly descriptive, gratuitous sex of an S&M nature
✔️Somewhat basic writing style
✔️Very entertaining and made me want to keep reading

This book was an easy read and made me smile many times. I wanted nothing more from it. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Ok, now allow me to be a party pooper. They make a movie about a book club and its topic is Christian Grey? So disappointing. I blame Stephenie Meyer and her sparklepires. 💩

Well book number 2 down. See happily ever after all as predicted. So many things wrong with this story. A true fairy tale for sure. I hate how the ending makes me hope for love and partially admire them. But in no way do I want to back down that terrible road. Real life is not a fairy tale.

Excuse my language but holy F***!!! On page 334 past the scene with the ex in Ana‘s apartment and after the forever kneeling. Pure panic engulfed me when he screamed at Ana to go to leave him with her/it. This book is so fucked up and unrealistic. Pure fantasy hoping to changes Fifty into something he is not nor ever will be. Only in story world will it ever be possible. I was her hoping and praying and killing myself my soul for him.

BrandedCowgirl I wish people actually discussed books on here. Am I the only one mentally torturing myself? But I can‘t seem to stop!! I f****** hate how this story is going to end. Just like any other fairy tale happily ever after bullshit endings. Do I dare read the 3rd book? Of course I do I want to finish the series. So unbelievably screwed up. Isn‘t there a fourth now? 2y
BrandedCowgirl This is not a book to base hope of love off of but I want to soooo badly!! But it‘s lieing to yourself thinking you can help someone that far gone!!! No one can help you but yourself!!! 2y

This book is erie and give me chills. On a another note, the same descriptive words are used through both this book and the first one and every sex scene ends with the exact same words. It‘s annoyance my how often they fuck. And it‘s only what week two. That‘s also another annoying thing, the time line. Book one week one. Book two week two and a crazy ex sub. I‘m not enjoying this book anymore.

16 pages in they only been apart 5 days... sitting here screaming at her no! Don‘t go back! But I like the glimpse into one of his nightmares in the prologue. Will we see both sides of the story now? Mainly what‘s going through his head? But I‘m panicking over this book, it triggers my ptsd. I guess I can use this book as an exposer exercise. Hate the things we need to do to get better. I don‘t like the panic feelings!!!!

I'm doing two #bookpairings today because I couldn't decide. Two of my favorite things: books & music. When I first read the Fifty Shades books years ago, I made myself a playlist of a lot of the music mentioned in the book-so much good stuff.

Say what you want about the books & movies, but the OST for the movies are 👌🏻. I especially love Darker's: Zayn, John Legend, & The-Dream songs are 🔥🔥

#fallintobooks

batsy Love The Weeknd's song from the first one, I think. 2y
sprainedbrain @batsy Yes! He's got two on that one, I think. I also love the Sia song on that album. ❤️ 2y
SheReadsAndWrites I make a playlist for every book I write with all the songs that inspired me while working on it. 😊 Some of the songs I put in the book too. #lovemusic #muse 🎶 2y

LauraBrook Agree 100% to all of this! And every time an author includes anything classical, I get overly pumped. Yes, I'm the kind of girl who gets pumped over classical music. 🤓 Hmmm, reminds me that I bought Darker but have yet to watch it since then. Hello Amazon Prime! 2y
sprainedbrain @SheReadsAndWrites I love that, and I love it when authors share playlists with readers... it definitely adds to the experience of the book! 2y
sprainedbrain @LauraBrook Agree! There is a lot of classical on my original Fifty Shades playlist. 😍 2y
Bookzombie Yes! When I walked out of the first movie, I was all about the soundtrack. I haven't seen the second movie yet, but I have already listened to the soundtrack a number of times. 🙂 2y
sprainedbrain @Bookzombie they are both really good. Can't wait to see what's on the soundtrack for the third! 2y
Liatrek Totally agree! I loved Annie Lenox one the first soundtrack 2y
RadicalReader @sprainedbrain my two favorite songs are: Love Me Like You Do ( played when Grey takes Ana to his Mansion via Charlie Tango) and I Don‘t Wanna Live Forever( Ana and Grey are on the boat together) 2y

Honestly i felt like "Fifty Shades Of Grey" was a fine book a few more pages added to wrap up the idea would've been much better than 2 more books. I only got half way through "Fifty Shades Darker" and I bailed under the realization that it's quite a cheap book.

I'd like to say I'm not ashamed for having just seen this, but that'd be a lie. It's terrible. Killer soundtrack though!

I still can't for the life of me figure out why, out of all the amazing steamy books out there (Gideon Cross, anyone?!), THIS is the one that took off 🙄

Suzze Me either. Poorly written. There are better books by much better authors. It grinds me to no end that she has made millions on this crap. 3y
candyflossramparts I think it took off because Twilight was such a hit. I've never actually read the Grey books, because I didn't make it beyond page 100 of Twilight. 3y
