How did you come to read Fifty Shades of Grey?
I was actually looking to read a crime novel, and as I was walking through the store I saw this book with handcuffs on the cover and a round red and white sticker that read “Yes, this is the book that everybody is talking about.” I had heard about Fifty Shades but didn’t know what it was about, just that the main male character was amazing. So thinking Christian Grey would be some kind of special agent solving exciting crimes I bought it. After reading the first 2 chapters I realized I was reading the 2nd book of a trilogy that had nothing to do with what I had imagined and of course, I was hooked on Mr. Grey. So I bought the other 2.
Did you read an actual book or an ebook?
Which is your favorite book in the series?
I’m still deciding between Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed. In Darker we find out a lot about Christian and why he is the way he is. But the excitement of Freed really keeps you turning pages no matter what time it is.
What is your favorite scene in the series?
I have 2: When She tells him she’s a virgin and he goes ballistic. And when he asks her to cut his hair because it makes him feel loved.
How many times have you read the series?
Four, 2 in Spanish and 2 in English
Outside of Fifty Shades of Grey, what is your favorite book, series or author?
Larissa Ione’s Demonica series and Lords of Deliverance Series. Gabriel’s Inferno Series and Alexandra Adornetto’s Halo series
If you were to meet E L James today, what 2 questions would you ask her?
1. Why does Christian brush his teeth before breakfast and not after?
2. What parts of your personality are reflected in Christian Grey?
Have you had any unique experiences because of your love of Fifty Shades of Grey?
Yes. I came to Seattle for a Fifty Shades event and have met some amazing people from around the world thanks to this. I fell in love with the city and I’m actually working on moving here. It kind of changed my life. I also realized I have a friend whose a lot like Christian Grey hehe.
What scene are you most looking forward to in Fifty Shades of Grey The Movie?
All of it! lol. But mostly (again) when she tells him she’s a virgin, when he rescues her from Jose and the dancing scene at his apartment before they go his parent’s house for dinner. I love a man who can dance
