IMA READ

Ok, I gave up on 50 Shades somewhere around chapter eight and I do not even want to understand why I bought it in the first place. I guess I was curious to see what the hysteria was all about and I thought it would be an easy read. And an easy read it is, but after a while those ‘scenes’ became a bit boring to me and I really wanted to skip them, so I skipped all the way to the end without reading a single word. No more 50 Shades for me…hmm or maybe I will try the movie instead.

On other currently popular books, I just recently got gifted A Memoir by Grace Coddington and even though I am not nearly half way there, this is gooood! There is something about Grace and the way she writes that is just very…graceful, very intriguing. Feels like a perfectly executed small peek into the secrets of the high and higher in the fashion industry.

What are you reading at the moment?

ps: I stole this title from the homonymous song from Zebra Katz, that I am still playing very regularly after hearing it for the first time at Rick Owens last year and seeing all the editors (yes, also the very big ones) moving their heads to the beat during the show.

  1. I’m still curious to read 50 shades because of its hype but something is stopping me, I guess somewhere deep inside i know that it’s not going to be my book.
    This one looks good though, what is it exactly about? It it fiction?

    I’m reading Rant by Chuck Palahniuk at this moment. Weirdest book I’ve ever read but there’s something intriguing about it that makes you keep reading. I like it so far.

    Love,

    • I love all his pieces! have you read “Invisible Monsters” ? Very good. He also has a really gross one about “mishaps” when people get to experimental. Read on an empty stomach and definitely not before you go to bed.

  2. I just have finished the memoir of Grace and it is a great book because you can feel that she is a sweet person. I also finished reading The fountainhead by Ayan Rand, I book I always wanted to read but never had the chance before. Now I am reading a book by an Israeli writer that hasn’t been translated yet.
    I also started reading 50 shades 6 months ago, but had to stop after one third of a book. It was really boring and badly written.

  3. Deel 1 van de 50 Schades trilogie al sinds de zomer half gelezen op mijn nachtkastje. Het is niet dat ik het niet boeiend vind en daarom ben gestopt, ik ben gewoon geen lezer. In mijn vakantie, lekker buiten in het zonnetje kan ik me er nog toe zetten maar binnen met alle technologie van de wereld om me heen krijg ik het gewoon niet voor elkaar. Ben wel heel benieuwd wat je van het Grace Coddington boek vind, zie het overal voorbij komen maar waar ik normaal toch wel nieuwsgierig word naar een boek heb ik dat nu totaal niet…xx

  4. I was going through some of your old posts and came across one from NYFW exactly one year ago, before your haircut! Man, is that the best decision you have ever made or what? It has made you ten times more beautiful than you already were. Doubting even more to make the cut myself now… especially with all that “the Karlie” stuff!

  5. I’m reading Tales of Mystery and Imagination by E.A. Poe
    I haven’t tried to read 50 Shades, and after your review I won’t to. Grace Coddington’s Memoir is my must-to-read book, but I cant find it in my city. Do you know some good e-bookshops?

  6. I didn’t know they were making a movie about 50 shades. I did the same thing, but gave up two chapters in. I don’t think I even got to the kinky parts. I guess the writing was too horrible for me to actually read it!
    I just finished reading, Under the Hawthorn Tree, and it was really amazing. Great love story! Grace Coddington is my favourite!
