You must be living under a rock if you haven’t heard of Fifty Shades of Grey by EL James. The Twilight fan-fiction-inspired story features Bella-like college grad Anastasia Steele and super-rich, super-hot CEO Christian Grey. Basically, James swapped the vampire theme with BDSM.
I admit I had a hard time reading the first few chapters, but once I made it a third of the way through I was hooked. In just a couple of weeks, I’ve already read the whole trilogy (Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed) and have gone back a few times to re-read the first and second books.
Yes, I’m a Greyophile. I love Christian Grey. I’m addicted to the 50 Shades trilogy.
Here are a few signs you’re addicted to 50 Shades of Grey too:
- You start calling your husband “Mr.” – as Ana calls Christian, Mr. Grey. I’ve been doing it a lot with my Mr. lately. Bonus points for using “sir” or “master”.
- You start talking to people about your hard limits – like, “I will not wear pink nail polish. It’s my hard limit.”
- You have a sudden urge to buy your husband a silver grey tie.
- You start buying Bollinger wine. It’s the Greys’ favorite.
- You’re re-thinking your spanking beliefs – and not for the kids.
- Vanilla ice cream has become you’re new favorite flavor.
- You start biting your lip and rolling your eyes hoping your husband will order you to stop.
- You have a new fascination with elevators.
- You start sending inappropriate emails to your husband at work.
- If you attended BlogHer ’12, you’re wondering where you put your Eden Fantasies swag bag and if it came with any silver balls.
