50 Shades of Happiness

“There’s a very fine line between pleasure and pain. They are two sides of the same coin, one not existing without the other”

E.L James

I read 50 shades of Grey E. L. James. Since lately I’ve been reading longer books I am proud to say that I read a book of 514 pages and I do feel accomplished. This book start out with Anastasia also known as Ana taking the place of her friend Kate who was head of the news paper and got sick and couldn’t do an important interview with an the rich Christian Grey. This is where these two main characters meet. He makes her sign contracts in order to have a relationship with him which also includes a lot of BDSM acts.  In order to have this relationship she can’t speak of their sexual encounters or anything of that nature to anyone but it takes her sometime to sigh the contract. BDSM turns into abuse and Ana finds  that her and Christian shouldn’t be together. 50ShadesofGreyCoverArt.jpg

Let’s get to my opinion things. I feel that this book was incredible. I know it makes a few people upset but this book  is real. This happens in real life and people seem to look over it. It actually an eye-opener to see that some men have a different definition of what sex is supposed to be like. And in that case when does the court becomes involve or the legal acts. If two people are having sex but the sex is harming one is it only abuse when the person speaks up? Or is a person’s definition of sexual intercourse accounted for in that case. I personally understand why this book is in the category of banned and challenged books. No child should read this, it simply can change the mind of a child and what they think sex should be like. I do think in order to read this book you have to be mature and don’t let the book influence the way you do things.

Oh Mondays!!

“I am going to have coffee with Christian Grey… and I hate coffee.”

-Ana

This past week has been one of my hardest weeks ever! It has really hit me that I am becoming an adult and life is much different. Things just don’t come as easier as it use to and I had started to become very discourage. But I realized that the “Hard Life” is the average life of a college student. I had to step up my game and remind myself my goals and remember nothing last forever and especially trying times. Overall, my make up skills are becoming much better! I have yet to start my portfolio and try to get my work out though. I’m not sure what I am waiting on. I have been considering applying for jobs at make up stores and move up from there with my business where in these stores I can find loyal clientele for myself.50ShadesofGreyCoverArt.jpg

But enough about me and my sad stories. I’m reading 50 Shades of Gray by E. L. James on page 102 of 514. I know some of you all are thinking “Why in the world would she want to read that?” and others might think “I love that book, great read!” Well that’s exactly why I am reading it! I have never heard so many different reviews on one book there’s in no between. It seems like you either like it or you don’t and that is so interesting to me. So far my opinion is going towards the side of like. It kind of puts myself to dream what would I do in that kind of situation. Does this really happen at big colleges? Like is this normal? This book excites me so far. I have so many unanswered questions and that’s what makes me want to read more of the book. It seems like the beginning can capture anyone. So I am curious of just what the turn around is and why don’t some people enjoy this book.

The Kill Right On Time

“It ain’t easy saving the world, even once case at a time.”

-Lucien

A Time to Kill By John Grisham was the longest book I have ever took time to read. 515 pages of the excellence. This book has so many emotions all stirred up in one. This book begins with a young African American young girl begin raped and beaten by two white male named Pete and Billy Ray. They think that is ok and funny but Mr. Carl Lee, her farther, thinks otherwise. Now this book take place in 1980s in Mississippi where racism was prevalent. Carl Lee has a good friend, a white lawyer, named Jake. Jake was with Carl through thick and thin knowing that his friend wanted to kill this two guys, he said nothing to the police. I believe that the love in this book over comes all anger. This book gives a complete insight to what goes through rape victims father’s mind.

Carl Lee kills the two men! No that’s not a spoiler and no that’s not how the book ends. Pure Climax! The toe-curler is Carl Lee id that the people want Carl Lee receives the death penalty because of two disgusting men that abused his daughter. What goes on while Carl Lee is behind bars is the story. Jake does all that he can to protect his family because this case had reached the public and the public took things in their own hands. Billy Rae had a brother named Freddy, he wanted his revenge. He brought in the Ku Klux Klan also known as the KKK, this group brought so much havoc that people died. There is one con I have with this book and it’s that everyone can not read this book it’s very visual and it has the ability to paint a picture in one’s mind and leaving it there. I would not recommend this book to one who has been raped or abused. Overall wonderful story I would read it again. I wouldn’t recommend watching the movie until you read the book. It gives so much more details.
