Still Not Over Fifty Shades However

I’m still not over the story of the Fifty Shades, considering it’s a trilogy and I have only seen one on the big screen.

However, I’m open about the idea of reading other novels having the same theme of Fifty Shades, particularly erotic and romance novels. Its not that I’m addicted but I love to read as well as writing. I did some research and here are some novels I find interesting and may have the same impact like the Fifty Shades Trilogy.

  • Bared to You, Reflected in You, Entwined with You, and Captivated by You – Sylvia Day

  • Blindfolded Innocence (Trilogy) – Alessandra Torre

  • An Innocent in Paris (Classic) – Barbara Cartland

  • Fever Series – Karen Marie Moning

Hopefully, I can read it soon enough! 🙂

Kindle: A Reader’s Perspective


Up until now, I’m very much dismayed by the fact that Amazon Kindle is not recognized here in our country.

Since yesterday, I have been asking people here in my workplace, in my social media account, even in the mall. Sadly, all of them don’t have the idea of what I have been looking for.

Does it mean Filipinos are not good readers? I mean, having a single Kindle is almost equivalent to thousands of books. It can save money, time and effort in one hand than buying in bookstores. Book stores where books are often out of stock.

Think of it. I’m saying all of these because I’m really disappointed. But, I think I really make sense.

Need and Want


If only I have extra money, I could buy Kindle. Kindle is a gadget exclusive for reading. I’ve looked up the price online and it cost $79.00 at the Amazon website, the only problem is I don’t have a Dollar account. If you convert it to Philippine Peso it is almost equivalent to Php3,397.00 which is affordable.

I’ve also looked at online stores here in PH but the price is expensive, it costs Php9,000.00, it makes a lot of difference from the Dollar price.

I still got hope that I can find a Kindle that is affordable here. For the meantime, I downloaded the Kindle app in google playstore, so I can read on my phone.

So many books, so little time

After going to church, I decided to go to the mall. While waiting for my mother,  I entered the National Bookstore.

There are so many books that got my attention and interest. If I will be given enough money, I would buy all those books.

I don’t know what gotten into me to be so inlove with books. Before, reading is the least favorite thing I like to do. I’d rather watch whatever there is to watch. But now, all of my interests are suddenly connected with books.

Actually I have borrowed many books from my officemate before, up until now I can’t read them all. I really find it hard to save extra time for reading.

If only I have plenty of time and money, surely I will enjoy reading as much as I enjoy writing. For me, reading and writing are just like family,  hard to separate.

I even have this crazy imagination of having a large library and everyday I will just take my time to read all of the books.

I wish I could buy kindle, sadly I can’t afford the price. 😦

Fifty Shades Fever


“We aim to please Ms. Steele”

– Christian Grey

One of the familiar lines in the Fifty Shades Trilogy by E.L. James.

These books have taken the world like storm with over a million copies sold, making it a worldwide bestseller. All avid fans of the book are very much aware of the movie adaptation which will be shown three days from now.

However, not all countries are open to the idea of showing the movie in their respective cinemas. Somehow, fans from those countries are disappointed, especially when they are expecting it.

Here in my country, several months ago, a news suddenly came out of nowhere that the movie will not be shown in cinemas.  Since I’m an avid fan, I’m really disappointed. The idea of downloading the movie thru torrent sites came up to me. We really need to watch it.

Just last week, I saw that the movie will still be shown here in our country. Happiness and excitement was felt. As the days came closer, the feeling just got bigger.

But seeing headline news on the internet, like “Fifty Shades of Grey Banned,” “Fifty Shades of Grey will not be shown”, I feel bad for those who cannot see it.

Just now, I saw this on the newsfeed of my FB account, ‘Blurred’ and ‘blocked’, ‘Fifty Shades’ not in SM Cinemas due to MTRCB rating. It was given an R-18 rating and now this one. A big “OH NO!”.

Some may think that the BDSM theme of the movie is really a no-no in the society, but come to think of it, in some way it really does happen in real life situation.

Looking at a different perspective, this movie can also be acceptable, I’m not saying because I’m a fan but a reader, I have read the whole trilogy, mainly the theme of the books is BDSM however, it is also a story full of love, hope, and some humor.

To those who haven’t read the book, you better start reading now. It’s a page-turner. It will bring you sleepless nights. It brings out inner desires you never thought of. To summarize it all up in one word, ADDICTING.

Laters baby. x
