So here we are again, how quick does Sunday come around?
This Sunday I would like to share my love of reading with you.
For the last 4+ years I have been an avid fan fiction reader, a huge online site where novice authors write and load up their stories for folks like me to read and review. They don't get paid for it and they must spend a lot of time on these stories for little or no reviews. There are 1000's or stories featuring your favourite characters from book, TV show and everything in between. Be it Friends, House, CSI or Harry Potter there are stories with your favourite characters all over the net.
( only read compete stories with 2000+ reviews to save your brain getting fried)
I entered the fan fiction world via Twilight, after watching and re reading these stories again and again, I was lost as to what to do next and found myself online, reading stories which all featured Edward and Bella in every story line you can ever imagine and some you cant.
This is where I first read Master of the Universe, 3 or more years ago it was freely available to read and I was delighted to make the connection to the very much talked about 50 Shades or Grey books.
Why you might ask because it is no way a literary masterpiece and has received much criticism regarding it content.
I was delighted that someone who had spent an enormous amount of time writing something for pleasure, shared it with others not knowing how well it would be received, had her work published!
It's what every would be author dreams about and I am pleased that she has been successful in writing a store that was read by 1000's, got picked up by a publishing house, has a "hot" best seller and now a movie deal, AWESOME RESULT
and no matter what you think of the story its is a dream come true for
the woman who started off on fan fiction.
I shall not go into the phenomenon that is 50 shades and how it is now acceptable for woman of all ages to read erotic literature because its for sale in Asda so it must be OK
and how there are many men out there that are very happy that their women have picked up these books ;)
So that's me up to date with my paper backs, whats next?
Have you read any good books, where should I go next?
