The Search for the Best Romance Novel
The Fifty Shades Trilogy became extensively popular around the globe since the first book, Fifty Shades of Grey, was published in 2011. The books’ focus on topics related to sexual encounters, love, and BDSM (bondage, discipline, sadism, and masochism) have become the main attractions for its readers, making it the best seller that it is today. The books – which include Fifty Shades of Grey, Fifty Shades Darker, and Fifty Shades Freed – are said to have sold over 100 million copies internationally.
Erika Leonard “E.L.” James is the author of the Fifty Shades Trilogy. She has received numerous awards and recognitions for her work, including: Time Magazine’s “100 Most Influential People” (2012), Publishers Weekly’s “Publishing Person of the Year”, and the National Book Award’s “Popular Fiction Book of the Year” and “Book of the Year” in 2012. Her work first gained attention as a fanfiction of Twilight Saga, which she wrote under the pen name “Snowqueens Icedragon” and which she referred to as a “reflection of her mid-life crisis and her fantasies”. EL James was a television executive before her big break as an author, and she is married to screenwriter and director Niall Leonard.
Aside from its popularity in digital format, Fifty Shades Trilogy is also a favorite among audiobooks, which you can download here. It’s not difficult to understand why; after all, who wouldn’t want to hear Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele, particularly during their most intimate moments? Producing the trilogy in audiobook format has become a huge hit as it gives life to the characters, and helps the readers to take their imaginations one step higher, thus giving them the full impact of every word written. THe three books are also available in kindle as an e-book, giving the readers the convenience to have a copy of the books wherever they go, anytime they want.
The books are such a huge success that the movie adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey will be released in less than a year. Fans of the books are all going gaga over the teasers posted on the internet, and a lot of debate and guessing have been done before the cast was revealed. The movie adaptation has provided a new stir for the books’ audience, and it is sure to draw the attention even of those who have not read the books. If the books – where the sex them had to be read – became such a huge success, then there is no doubt that the movie will become a sure blockbuster hit.
