If you are interested in what I thought, well then continue reading.

I am terribly embarrassed to say that I actually read Fifty Shades of Grey after lots of prodding from friends. And yes I found it terrible. The writing was awful, the characters immature, and the story line completely repetitive. However, that author is obviously doing something right because she was been on the best sellers list for more months than I care to count and has continuously made headlines. The trilogy is even going to be turned into a movie, so obviously some people enjoyed it.

In the wake of the previously mentioned book, Sophie Morgan wrote about her actual life and lifestyle choices in Diary of a Submissive. I wasn’t sure I wanted to read this book, namely because I wasn’t sure I wanted to discuss this topic on my blog. However, I opted to go ahead and sign up. I really feel quite bad for ever comparing this book to Fifty Shades of Grey. It is completely different with a writing style I can respect. With that said, if you did enjoy Fifty, I think you would also enjoy reading this book.  The lifestyle is intriguing. And while it is definitely not my cup of tea, I still enjoy learning about what other individuals can tolerate and find worthy/necessary in a relationship.

I’m not going to recommend this book to everyone. If you are at all close minded, this is not for you. The scenes are explicit and made me uncomfortable frequently. However, like I said, it is very interesting to learn about other people’s lifestyle choices. This book opened me up to a whole new realm of individuals.
