I have to say that I don't hate the first book at all. I'm actually interested in it. With that said however, if i read, "Oh my!" or "He cocked his head to the side" one more time I will scream. More than that, I will hunt down the writer and make her edit the entire thing. Just kidding, more power to her. A lot of people have complained that it's not real literature, etc but hey, she didn't know it was going to go through the roof in sales so why penalize her? It's not my cup of Earl Gray Tea but again, I don't hate it. I do think there should have been more research into American things since the protaganist in the book seems to like all things UK and even uses phrases we don't use over here like pram yet she is from America.
But yeah, it's okay and I'll definitely finish it. I just can't see myself plastering my walls with Mr. Grey quotes quite yet.
