Nicole Speaks: Fifty Shades Series by: EL James

Every now and then my sister drops by the blog to join me in my book rambling and share her thoughts. If you want to know more about Nicole, click here.

Release Date: May 25, 2011
Goodreads | Amazon

"When literature student Anastasia Steele goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating. The unworldly, innocent Ana is startled to realize she wants this man and, despite his enigmatic reserve, finds she is desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her, too—but on his own terms.

Shocked yet thrilled by Grey’s singular erotic tastes, Ana hesitates. For all the trappings of success—his multinational businesses, his vast wealth, his loving family—Grey is a man tormented by demons and consumed by the need to control. When the couple embarks on a daring, passionately physical affair, Ana discovers Christian Grey’s secrets and explores her own dark desires.

Erotic, amusing, and deeply moving, the Fifty Shades Trilogy is a tale that will obsess you, possess you, and stay with you forever.

This book is intended for mature audiences."

Nicole Speaks:
I was very hesitant when I first heard about these books.  I had heard a lot of terrible things about them, a lot of intriguing things, but also a lot of amazing things.  I was torn until I heard they were making Fifty Shades of Grey into a movie.  Well I knew I would probably end up seeing the movie and there was no way I was going to let that happen without reading them first.  So I tried my best to forget everything I had heard about them and was just going to give them a shot. 

While I was reading the first book I was still just as torn about how I felt.  I loved Christian and felt terrible for him, but I hated him too.  I felt myself arguing with Ana the whole book and confused about how I felt.  I wasn’t bothered with a lot of the aspects of his way of life, then all of a sudden I would feel him cross some imaginary line I drew and wanted her to run for the hills and never look back.  But as soon as I imagined her doing that I realized I wanted Ana to stay and fix her broken fifty shades.  This book made me doubt my own feelings.

Of course, as the series went on and characters grew I liked some even more, like Christian and Ana, but hated others more than I could’ve imagined, like Mrs. Robinson.  She is one of the main reasons I was disgusted with certain parts of this book.  I know that was the point, but I was completely on Ana’s side the entire series as her secrets got revealed.  

Another reason I had been nervous about starting this book was that I had heard her writing was not good at all.  I was worried that if I disliked her writing style I would hate the book.  Luckily, it was not as bad as people had made it seem, and as the stories went on either I got used to it or her writing improved.  Either way, the story was so enticing that I was able to enjoy these books.  

While I definitely wouldn’t recommend these books to everyone, especially anyone much younger than myself, I’m glad I decided to read them and am looking forward to seeing Mr. Grey on the big screen.

We are absolutely thrilled to bring you the Cover Reveal for Courtney Cole's GUARDIAN! GUARDIAN is a YA Paranormal Romance, and a book close to Courtney’s heart. It is being released on August 28th!
Guardian 
 Sometimes, things that go bump in the night are real. My name is Whitney Lane. I’m sixteen years old and at first, I thought I was crazy. I kept seeing shadows move along walls, and hearing whispers around corners, but whenever I looked, there was never anything there. Until one day, there was. Our world isn’t what we think. There are things around us, good things, bad things, scary things. Things that we tell ourselves aren’t real, but they are. They’re very real, and they’re terrifying. I’ve been swept up now, in a battle of good and evil, confused about love and what is supposed to be love, but isn’t. I don’t know what to think anymore. I can’t trust my emotions and I don’t know what is true. There’s only one thing I know for sure. Nothing is what it seems.

  ABOUT COURTNEY COLE: 

Headshot Courtney Cole is a novelist who would eat mythology for breakfast if she could. She has a degree in Business, but has since discovered that corporate America is not nearly as fun to live in as fictional worlds. She loves chocolate and roller coasters and hates waiting and rude people. Courtney lives in quiet suburbia, close to Lake Michigan, with her real-life Prince Charming, her ornery kids (there is a small chance that they get their orneriness from their mother) and a small domestic zoo.

Synopsis via Goodreads:"In the conclusion to the trilogy that Publishers Weekly called “a roaring—and addictive—gothic world,” Eleanor Fitt must control her growing power, face her feelings for Daniel, and confront the evil necromancer Marcus...all before it’s too late.
He took her brother, he took her mother, and now, Marcus has taken her good friend Jie. With more determination than ever to bring this sinister man to justice, Eleanor heads to the hot desert streets of nineteenth-century Egypt in hopes of ending this nightmare. But in addition to her increasingly tense relationships with Daniel, Joseph, and her demon, Oliver, Eleanor must also deal with her former friend, Allison, who has curiously entangled herself in Eleanor’s mission.
With the rising dead chomping at her every move and Jie’s life hanging in the balance, Eleanor is convinced that her black magic will see her through to the bitter end. But there will be a price. Though she and the Spirit Hunters have weathered every battle thus far, there will be consequences to suffer this time—the effects of which will be irreversible. And when it’s over, only some will be able to live a strange and ever after.

Sloppy Seconds: Destroy Me (Shatter Me #1.5) by: Tahereh Mafi


Welcome to Sloppy Seconds which is monthly feature hosted by myself and Michele of A Belle's Tales. Sloppy Seconds is a feature in which Michele and I buddy re-read some of our very favorite books and then post our thoughts and feels. So sit back, relax, grab a glass of wine, and re-live some great reads with us!

Release Date: October 2, 2012
from Harper TEEN
Goodreads | Amazon

"Perfect for the fans of Shatter Me who are desperately awaiting the release of Unravel Me, this novella-length digital original will bridge the gap between these two novels from the perspective of the villain we all love to hate, Warner, the ruthless leader of Sector 45.

In Tahereh Mafi’s Shatter Me, Juliette escaped from The Reestablishment by seducing Warner—and then putting a bullet in his shoulder. But as she’ll learn in Destroy Me, Warner is not that easy to get rid of. . .

Back at the base and recovering from his near-fatal wound, Warner must do everything in his power to keep his soldiers in check and suppress any mention of a rebellion in the sector. Still as obsessed with Juliette as ever, his first priority is to find her, bring her back, and dispose of Adam and Kenji, the two traitors who helped her escape. But when Warner’s father, The Supreme Commander of The Reestablishment, arrives to correct his son’s mistakes, it’s clear that he has much different plans for Juliette. Plans Warner simply cannot allow.

Set after Shatter Me and before its forthcoming sequel, Unravel Me, Destroy Me is a novella told from the perspective of Warner, the ruthless leader of Sector 45."


OUR DISCUSSION
**spoilers for the series ahead**

Teresa Mary Rose
So Wifey it was absolutely wonderful getting to visit Warner again was it not?

Michele Belle
It was even better than the first time if that's at all possible.  Tell me... when you read Shatter Me for the first time, did you fall instantly for Warner or did you find yourself loving him as more things about his character were revealed?

Teresa Mary Rose
Agreed. So much better the second time around. I don't know how, but it was. I think it was knowing the outcome of the series. 

I didn't fall instantly for Warner but I was definitely definitely intrigued by him. I could always tell there was much more to him than the front he put up but it did take some time. However, by the end of Shatter Me I was firmly Team Warner so really it didn't take me too long to love him. How were you?

Michele Belle
Oh, definitely!  Knowing the outcome really made it even better.  

I loved Shatter Me – that first book completely consumed me.  Tahereh’s writing blew me away, and I fell hard for Juliette.  Her thoughts, words, actions – everything.  I loved Adam, too.  I forget sometimes that I loved him, but I did.  But I was fascinated with Warner.  Could not stop thinking about him.  His focus, his obsession, everything about him.  I didn’t want him to appeal to me because of the things he had done.  I kept wishing to know his inner thoughts and what his motives were so I could feel justified in the fact that I couldn’t stop thinking about him.  And then I read Destroy Me.  Sigh.  I think my first emotion is relief.  I’m free to love this tortured soul, this beautiful man, and to know for a fact that this monster from the first book is anything but a monster.  I love Aaron Warner.

Teresa Mary Rose
Oh yes. You just described my feelings exactly. I loved Adam too. I really did BUT I absolutely loved and adored Warner. And like you I couldn't pin point why, but I was in love. He was such an intriguing and different character and I just wanted to know everything about him. Then I read Destroy Me and all I could think was "I was right, I knew there was more to him." It was so great knowing that there really was someone great behind his mask and that we were able to see it.

Michele Belle
Absolutely!  We were and are definitely on the same page when it comes to Warner and this great series.  

The only fault that I can find with this novella is the fact that it makes me go all day-dreamy where Warner is concerned.  I overindulge on swoon.  I am in fact way too old for such things; but instead of feeling ashamed, I will just pass the blame on to Tahereh Mafi.  SHE did it.  (And I love her for it.)

Teresa Mary Rose
I love it when we are on the same page! 

Well if that's the only fault then that's a good thing. It really is hard to move on after living with Warner for a while. It's very hard to compare to him. 

I think what I loved the most about this novella is that it really gives you all the answers without you even realizing it. Reading it knowing the outcome you could really see that Warner was it all along and I loved that.

Michele Belle
Me too!  Especially when it's a story I hold dear to my heart.  

It breaks you!  Even though this was a re-read, I had such a hard time selecting my next book.  A complete book hangover.  

I agree -- and the way the answers are presented: all tied up in that little, battered notebook that was left behind.  Gah, that notebook.  I want it.  Warner discovering answers to his questions about Juliette as he gave us his own secrets and truths.  Brilliant.

Teresa Mary Rose
It really does break you. It's very hard to move on. 

Yes yes. So brilliant. It's such an amazing presentation. And I seriously love how he thinks of Juliette. He truly believes in her and thinks she is strong and wants the best for her and I love that.

Michele Belle
Exactly!!  And he doesn't want to fix her because he doesn't believe she's broken.  What others perceive as her flaw or weakness, he sees as her strength.  Instead of a curse, he believes it's her gift.  And he's right!

And now that we've expressed our devotion to Warner and what a wonderful man he is... how about we talk about the man who gave him life and raised him.  Oh, how I detest his father!

Teresa Mary Rose
OMG yes. Exactly. She isn't broken or cursed. She is strong and powerful and he believes in her unlike some others. 

I detest his father. THAT MAN is the true villain of the series. He is incredibly evil and cold and I just dislike him immensely.

Michele Belle
Yes!  And though there are amazing secondary characters who do admire and believe in her, none come close to understanding her like he does. 

He is indeed the most evil and vile character.  He gives me chills!!  I hate what he put his son through.  The cruelty of his words and actions were astonishing.

Teresa Mary Rose
Yes exactly. And nobody can understand her like him because nobody else has grown up the way they have. It's hard to truly support someone without truly understanding them. 

So agree. He is horrendous and makes me so angry. He is so cold and cruel and that makes him terrifying.  

So I'm sure you knew this was coming, but I want to discuss the contrast between Warner and Adam's novellas. After re-reading I really think now the difference in the writing style was intentional. Warner and Juliette think alike and lyrically because they are alike whereas Adam really wasn't like Juliette at all, at least not the real Juliette. I'm still not the biggest fan of Adam's novella but I think I understand its purpose better now.

Michele Belle
That's a great point!  The difference between sympathy and empathy.  He knows her because in many ways, he is her.  

I was waiting for this part of the discussion!  Adam's novella gave me a multitude of grumpies, but you are spot-on in your assessment.  It did serve a greater purpose, and it really drives so many points home.  It makes perfect sense now.  

And even though Adam is not involved in this novella (other than a few venomous barbs being directed at him from Warner... which make me giggle) I want to say that I am not anti-Adam.  I really don't have any hostility towards him so for me it wasn't a "team" thing.  To me, what happens with Adam is really a mirror of what happens in real life.  You meet someone and think they're wonderful!  You see all the things about them that are right.  They put their best foot forward, and their first impression is very appealing.  But for whatever reason, the more layers uncovered and the deeper you get to know someone... you discover that maybe they aren't the perfect person for you that you initially hoped they would be.  It happens.  I think I want to express that thought for the sole purpose of encouraging readers who abhor Warner and think Adam is the only choice for Juliette to give the rest of the series a chance.  It's not about who wins the girl's heart.  It's about the girl.

Teresa Mary Rose
Yes it did give us grumpies but in retrospect it makes sense. It allows us to see the real Warner and the real Adam from outside of Juliette's perspective. 

Wifey I wholeheartedly agree with everything you just said. This story is so much more than who Juliette should pick. This story is about Juliette growing and coming to terms with herself. Adam is not a bad guy he just isn't the guy for Juliette. I don't hate him at all, I had some cranky moments with him but I don't hate him. They just grew apart and that is so realistic and I love that Tahereh took the story the way she did.

Michele Belle
Perfectly put, Wifey.  I love the direction the author took the story in, and I strongly encourage readers to read this novella before continuing the series or if they finished the series but struggled with the decisions of the main character to go back and read this novella.  It is incredibly insightful and well written.  I think you'll agree that Tahereh's writing is so lovely, we'd read her grocery lists!

Teresa Mary Rose
Yes. Absolutely. The novella, while not necessary, really does give that something extra to the story and I love it. 

Also I need to mention this because I'm sure you loved it too. Did you not melt inside when Warner was feeding the stray dog?

Michele Belle
It's NECESSARY!  It's a must!!  They HAVE to... yeah, okay... you encourage them and I'll insist.  Good cop, bad cop.  

One of my favorite parts!  A complete puddle of feelings.  It doesn't matter who Juliette may choose in the end -- the long baths, the love for dogs, and decidedly favoring coffee makes Warner the man for ME.

Teresa Mary Rose
Yes. We got this. *glares* 

I knew you would appreciate that part as much as I did. It was just such a sweet moment! Yes all those things you just said. Juliette can pick whoever but you and I decidedly choose Warner. 

Is it quote time?

Michele Belle
Hahaha!  I love you.  All the agreeing and concurring in the world. 

It is!  Choosing quotes by this author is one of the easiest and hardest things to do... hardest because I have a hard time reeling it in.  I've tried very hard to control myself, but these are my must-shares:  

“And suddenly this small, battered notebook means more to me than anything I’ve ever owned.”

“I knock the notebook to the floor. I’m upright in an instant trying to steady my heart. I run a hand through my hair, my fingers caught at the roots. These words are too close to me, too familiar. The story of a child abused by its parents. Locked away and discarded. It’s too close to my mind. I’ve never read anything like this before. I’ve never read anything that could speak directly to my bones.”

“She’s found the cracks in this cast I’m forced to wear every day, and it petrifies me.  That this girl would know exactly how to shatter me.”

“I take a deep breath.  Take another sip of this coffee.  I’m surprised to discover how much I enjoy the bitter taste of it.”

“My mind is a warehouse of carefully organized human emotions.  I lock away the things that do not serve me.”

“I’ve come to believe that the most dangerous man in the world is the one who feels no remorse. The one who never apologizes and therefore seeks no forgiveness. Because in the end it is our emotions that make us weak, not our actions.”

Share with me your favorites!  I can't wait to see!

Teresa Mary Rose
Oh Wifey I have so many favorites and surprisingly ours do not overlap this time. I think that's a first haha. Okay here we go. 

"Funny, how accustomed I'd become to visiting her here; how it gave me a strange sense of comfort to know that she and I were living in the same building. Her presence on base changed everything for me; the weeks she spent here became the first I ever enjoyed living in these quarters. I looked forward to her temper. Her tantrums. Her ridiculous arguments. I wanted her to yell at me; I would've congratulated her had she ever slapped me in the face. I was always pushing her, toying with her emotions. I wanted to meet the real girl trapped behind the fear. I wanted her to finally break free of her own carefully constructed restraints."

"This girl is destroying me. A girl who has spent the last year in an insane asylum. A girl who would try to shoot me dead for kissing her. A girl who ran off with another man to get away from me. Of course this is the girl I would fall for. I close a hand over my mouth. I am losing my mind."

"I want her to know that I understand now. That I didn't understand before. She and I really are the same; in so many more ways than I could've known. But now she's out of reach. She's gone somewhere with strangers who do not know her and would not care for her as I would. She's been dropped into another foreign environment with no time to transition, and I'm worried about her. A person in her situation - with her past - does not recover overnight. And now, one of two things is bound to happen: She's either going to completely shut down, or she's going to explode." (He was SO right btw)

Michele Belle
Those are wonderful choices!  Confession, I did have one of those, but I edited my choices down.  I felt confident you would pick it... and you did!  Still twins. lol 

Wifey, thank you for re-reading this one with me.  We've never chosen a novella before in our discussions, and I really enjoyed it.  I definitely see the two of us re-reading more books from this series in the future.

Teresa Mary Rose
Yes! Still twins! That was close lol. 

It was an absolute pleasure re-reading this with you and I definitely see us re-reading more of this gorgeous series!

Weekly Recap 7/27/2014 and New York Author Occasion 2014 Recap


Life. Is. Busy. I am so incredibly busy at work as it is once again busy season aka I need it to be August 7th already so this can be over season. So as you may have noticed, things are a bit slower on the blog and I'm also getting less books. But I did get a few fun ones this week. And while it is busy season and I am working weekends as well, I squeezed in some time to make sure I attended the New York Author Occasion because Samantha Young and Nicole Williams were going to be there and I NEEDED to meet them! Really glad I made time for that because I had a blast. But first, let's recap the books I got during the week. I grabbed Her Mad Hatter which is a novella and an Alice In Wonderland twist so of course I needed it and best of all IT WAS FREE. Thanks to Brandee from Bookworm Brandee for introducing me to this one. I also grabbed The Wedding Wager and Inevitable because they were free. I am on the blog tour for Flawed and am really excited to continue with that series, such a cool dystopian world. Then came time for the signing and I had so much fun! I finally got to meet Nicole Williams and I may have fangirled a bit and I also got to meet Samantha Young which was amazing! Gots tons of goodies signed and a whole bunch of swag. I was pretty good and only got books signed that I already had BUT while I was there I had to pick up Taint because MY GOSH THAT COVER and I also kept eyeing Making Faces so I ended up picking up that one as well. The event was organized really well and it wasn't overly crowded so everyone was able to spend time with the authors. Also, my Elsa shirt was a hit, which I never expected.
