"Fifty Shades" by E.L. James

So after hearing so much about the book series called "Fifty Shades" I got curious. I needed to read them, so I would know, what everyone was talking about. I figured I would download an example on my iPod, and then I could see if I wanted to keep on reading. Well I did, so I went to buy the first book. I must say that I loved it! It was so different from anything else I've ever read, but I just couldn't stop reading. The sex scenes were way too descriptive, but at the same time, they gave you insight on Christian Grey and who he really was. It was like reading his mind. I kept on reading, because I needed to know how Ana's life was going to turn out. It was a true love story or a nightmare somehow. But by turning each page I started to love the characters. I felt bad for Christian not being able to love anyone, and I felt bad for Ana not being able to move on. But in the end you got to see how much they cared for each other. So if you want to read a love story with a little twist, this would be one of the greatest.

The writing was not as good as I had hoped for. But then again it made me laugh so much at times. It was written in the everyday language, and I felt like it made it easier to "connect" with the characters. I've never read a book with so many cusswords, but it only made the book much more human.

I'm buying the second book tomorrow, and I can't wait to read it!

I was thinking of blogging to you guys about my newest obsession: ICE COFFEE. It is THE greatest drink on earth! Its just so coffeeliscious and creamy. Anyways for the past few weeks I've been trying to find a good recipe, but I didn't have any luck until yesterday. So therefore I'm bringing this Danish recipe into the life of the blogger!


1 1/2 cup of skim milk
1/2 cup of heavy milk
1 cup of cold brewed coffee - A strong one (espresso would be awesome!
2 tsp of sugar
A little vanilla essence if you like
5 ice cubes
And a little chocolate for the top

What you do is that you pour all the milk, coffee, sugar and only 3 ice cubes in a blender, and as simple as it is you BLEND :D Crush the two last ice cubes and put them in a tall glass, then you pour in the ice coffee and tadaa you have one great drink for your evening with the ladies :) Remember this recipe is only for one glass.

Ps.: This drink is perfect for a good book or movie
