It’s been all about Christian Grey for me the last several days…
It started on Thursday when Grey was released. I’ll share my thoughts on that in another post, but suffice to say it was definitely emotional and intense for the moment…in the best way possible.
Once I finished I felt the need to do an immediate reread of Fifty Shades Darker. I don’t know if I’ve ever shared that FSD is my favorite of the original trilogy. That’s a real oddity for me because usually it’s the first or the last book in a series which is closest to my heart. In fact, it may be the only time that’s occurred. Anyways, once I reached the end I began Fifty Shades Freed. I’m about 3/4 through it now. If I haven’t had enough of a Christian fix then I guess I’ll listen to Grey, since I purchased the audible copy as well. Yup…I’m completely Greycessed right now.
There are characters for all readers who stand out in such a way that it’s just impossible to ever really get enough. Most of mine are the guys…my forever favorite book boyfriends, and Christian is and probably always will be in my top 3. I think part of what makes him such a memorable character for me personally is because he was just so different from any other guy I’d read before. I’m not just talking about his kinky fuckery though that’s certainly provocative and arousing. I think it’s more about his journey from the person he was to the person he becomes. It’s all the issues, all the discoveries, all the challenges, all the changes he undergoes.
I could never describe Christian Grey in a word, or a sentence. He’s too much for that, and maybe that’s yet another reason why he will always have a very special and unforgettable place in my heart.
I am so grateful to have all of the original books to read over and over. I’m grateful to have a new book…his book…to treasure along with the others. So, now I’m going to go back to spending a little more time with him.
Christian Grey. That pretty much says it all 🙂
