Wanting to know you Wens.

I couldn't put it down and once or twice i've texted my twinkie"i'm in love with christian grey."  

Yes, as in 50 Shades of Grey. I just finished book one and can't wait to get started on the next one. I know, it's poorly written and unrealistic in many ways... but man oh man, there's just something about it that makes you want more. 

Are you reading it and if so what do you think? 
+ who do you picture as Christian Grey? 

Marianne pictures her crush from White Collar and Steph pictures her crush from True Blood

This is my Christian Grey:

Can't wait to hear your thoughts on the book and who you picture as CEO of Grey Enterprises.

I'm torn. I'm still not even finished with the first book (I'm almost done though), and although I like the mindless escape, and I think the genre is interesting . . . it's hard for me to get past the terrible writing and the endless cliches and stuff. Also, I'm thrown by the description of Christian Grey as having "copper" hair, cause I can't really imagine that. But I like your choice. I don't know who that is, but he looks just right. :)

I have such a love/hate issue with this book. I read them all so fast and whilst I was reading them I completely fell for him too... but the writing, the silly decisions, the constant avoidance of actually talking to each other... I ended up more frustrated by it than anything lol and then completely appreciative of the the fact that Thomas and I have a functional relationship in comparison haha. I must be getting old and boring ;)

However I did read somewhere about the gorgeous Alexander Skarsgård being Christian and I did a little dance, I love his as Eric... your Christian is pretty yummy too though!!

Ryan Gosling a la airbrushed abs in Crazy Stupid Love... Sigh.

What a great question (and great timing) - finished reading this yesterday (started it Tuesday), and read the first few chapters of the next one.

It's tough to find someone to fit that exact character. Love the 2nd pic you selected.

Here is mine for now - subject to change:

I'm halfway through the second book now and I LOVE Christian too. He's so sexy and romantic and... well, you know what else ;) haha.

I can definitely see this actor playing him in the film! He's gorgeous!

Micaela said...

Claire, i know-- the copper thing threw me off too but i kept imagining this guy with copper undertones lol he's from "Something Borrowed." I fell hard for him after seeing the movie in the theater lol

Rhianne, you're just like my friend Steph and who she pictures and Natalie, that's exactly the guy Marianne pictures.

Faiza, LOVE the escape of this read. I was curious about it for a long while but you talking about it in SF made me go out and buy it when i got home. Ryan Gosling is always a nice choice ;)

Lauryn, YEP i know what else ;) two words: blue string. HA omg!

Leesh said...

I still don't know if I should read the book. I feel like I am missing out.

Man, Dex, as I like to call him, is such a hottie. He needs to be on a TV show or another movie. I miss Melrose 2.0!

Kristyn said...

I just bought the book, and I'm nervous because I've heard mixed things about it ! I'm definitely intrigued though!

I also have mixed feelings about this book. there is something sexy about Christian Grey, and I cant wait to read more about his fifty shades (i'm only two chapters into the second one!), but I really can't stand Ana and her "inner goddess" and I really don't like that in the first book, their BDSM agreement isn't totally consensual. she only wants to do it because he wants her to, not because she wants to herself. but other than that, i think the fetish/mr. grey side is very sexy ;)

AND, i know he's a little old to be 27, but i always imagine Jon Hamm as Christian Grey. because to me, he's the perfect amount of lovable and insanely sexy! or maybe it's just because he's the ultimate good looking dude to me haha!

I haven't started reading them yet, but man oh man he is gorgeous. I am in love with The Client List on Lifetime. He plays Jennifer Love Hewitt's brother-in-law!!

Ok, "I am in Love with Christian Grey" Seriously, how is that possible!??
I just finished 50 Shades of Grey....Loved it, couldn't put it down either.
My Christian Grey is Jason McKidd!! (Dr Owen Hunt from Grey Anatomy none the less)
I'm about to start 50 Shades Darker...and preparing to say goodbye to the next few days!

I finished the trilogy earlier today. I agree some of the storyline was a little frustrating but I definitely got caught up with the story and love both Anastasia and Christian. Colin is my choice together with Matt Bomer but Colin is my preference he is a stunning man he is a lot older than Christian but doesn't look it so could definitely do it!
