Typos

I was surprised seeing the dreaded typographical error after reading my novel for the nth time. I even let an English Prof edit it and most of my friends read it but nobody caught the “at one” instead of “at once.”

Ridiculous but I realized, I really have to read it out loud… which is sickening…

But I have to finishing reading it… I might catch more typos… Just irritating…

I am tired of reading it all over again and again but when I thought of the happiness writing bring me, every doubts I had disappear.

I have to get back to work. Polish my words until they shine.

Fifty Shades Freed

Well… what can I say? Hmmm. I’m glad I’m free from reading it?

It took me 100 pages before I got hooked on it. Maybe I got bored about the sex stuff (shrug). It started to be exciting then it’ll be plateau again. Gosh… It took me a little while to finish this–because I’m not hooked at once.

They got so sweet and cheesy that there’s no tension at all. The story as a whole was really not that deep and as complicated. The only reason I decided to read it was because my friends were asking me about it, knowing me, I’m a curious creature, I started reading it.

I must say I liked Fifty Shades of Grey and Fifty Shades Darker than this book. I only thing that made me picked up my reading speed was when Ana became ********! Haha of course this is not a spoiler for those who haven’t read it.

Parts of the story bored me, knowing they are already *******. Less tension, less grip. They were quarrelling about the same thing all over again. And the dialogue –The fair/good point well made–made me roll my eyes in a bad way. Maybe, because everything suddenly becomes cliches. Nothing new.

The villains… seemed not so threatening at all. Like Christian Grey could simply crush them all…

Only after page 300 that I read faster, wanting to end this… agony? Well… I simply don’t really feel the emotions of this book unlike the first two. It made me laugh somehow but it did not affect me as the first two books did.

I would want read the first two books again but not this one. This feels like a fairy tale without much tension. I miss the intensity of the emotions this trilogy started. I’m just glad I finished it. I can concentrate on my editing and critiquing my own work of blood on paper.

Well… I’m still looking forward for the upcoming movie. Still hoping for Ian Somerhalder to play Christian Grey, knowing he would be perfect for that. I hope E L James and the producers will consider him or even choose him! I would definitely jump to my feet to know that.

Despite all the bad reviews I read, the typos in the books I noticed and weird vocabularies, I still fell in love with Christian (Mercurial, Fucked-up, Control Freak, Palm Twitching CEO) Grey.
Anyway, I can see Alexis Bledel to be Anastasia Steele. lol
