Fifty Shades of Anonymity

Oh dear. Oh dear. Oh dear. 

Newsflash: In my rush to get the last post done (Happy Face) before hitting the real workload falling asleep, I made a massive faux pas of sorts. I shared the post to my Facebook page. Except instead of going to the INSANE JANE facebook page (which is here) I accidentally shared it on my PERSONAL TIMELINE. Quel horreur! 

All I can say is THANK GOODNESS I haven't written a three-part trilogy about bondage porn with some impossibly rich, really, really ridiculously good looking but completely messed up billionaire. Oh my!

Anyway, now it would seem I am not as anonymous as I once thought. I am terribly sorry if I have offended anyone by not telling you personally that I've been a-blogging. And terribly sorry if you are just down right offended!

I do hope that self-outing  doesn't subconsciously cause me to censor my posts from here on in. Especially since my last post was about not hiding! And I know I won't be writing about any red room of pain in the near future.

OH MY, indeed! 
 

Seriously, I wonder if this is how the author of Fifty Shades of Grey felt. We all know now that EL James is not her real name and that she is indeed a working mother-of-two from England.
The thing that SHOCKED me most in Fifty Shades was not the bondage, it was the fact that she never got an editor to have a look at the books before she published. They are really horrific.

Oh My, I mean who actually says "Oh my" anyway?

Yet still I read it. I read all three books actually. I found it to be like Chinese food. You know it's bad, you know you are better than that, but still you persist.

And I hope you will persist with this blog as well.

From Insane Jane who is not really insane and is not biting her lip, rolling her eyes, or bemused in any way.

Oops! I have 50 Shades on my bookshelf, waiting for a quiet moment or two..waiting, waiting..is it worth the wait?

Oops alright. Fifty Shades is a page turner...you may not be able to put it down but the writing is atrocious. It's repetitive and HIGHLY unbelievable in many, many facets. I read all three books on my iPhone months ago before the hard copy came out.

I flicked through that book at the Sydney airport bookshop after I saw Ellen talking about it on tv. It didn't even look rude to me. I can write so much better than that LMAO!! Nat x

Excellent, great post. Even in Canada everyone is talking about 50 Shades of Grey!

OMG I hope I never do that cause no one in real life knows I blog.

That way I can bitch about them freely.

My husband downloaded the book, I haven't read it yet. From what I have heard maybe I should get HIM to read it and surprise me? *waggles eyebrows*

Ahh, completely anon--I like it, Kelley. I am thinking of doing a restart and moving to an unknown part of the blogosphere ...

Re fifty shades: Maybe not such a good idea letting hubby read it ... you could be in for a surprise whipping!

Love your blog by the way. :)

Anyone would think it is the first book written like this. There are thousands of them and all of them are better quality. I don't know why this one got so much publicity but I think it was something to do with the fact that it used to be fan fiction for Twilight before it was published with names changed. Christian used to be Edward and Ana was Bella.

Fifty Shades of Repetition. Also the characters spend SO MUCH TIME talking about their relationship. It gets very, very annoying and sometimes you just want to slap both of them. Pun intended. xx
