Fifty Shades of Grey


Because the whole world is going on and on about this one, I tried it. I read about sixty pages. But I couldn't do it. I can usually stick with a bad book just to see what happens. But this was THAT BAD. I just couldn't go any further.

One Day by David Nicholls


Can I give this book exactly 2.5 out of 5? Because I'm on the fence - I liked the fact that every chapter was July 15th - following the two main characters every July 15th for twenty years. I liked the easy prose, the setting, the comedy. But I disliked the melodramatic, the over-the-top and the predictability. So, 2.5 out of 5, which I suppose means I'm undecided. I will read some reviews on goodreads.com and see what others thought.
