I don’t know if you’ve seen the movie, “What’s Up Doc?” but it’s a screwball comedy with Ryan O’Neal and Barbara Streisand. There’s one line in the movie that I repeat often to myself: “What more can they do to me?”
And that was my exact reaction when I heard that the husband of author E.L. James, writer of Fifty Shades of Grey, was going to write a young adult novel. Ok, I know, I’m not being fair.
I mean just because you’re married to someone who wrote one of the most talked about books of 2012 doesn’t mean you’re going to cash out by default, but still, that’s not gonna hurt Niall Leonard’s (the hubs) chances of success.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, “Leonard’s young-adult book, described as a “gritty” tale about a 17-year-old London teen who gets framed for his stepfather’s murder, will be published by Doubleday, a division of Random House Children’s Publishing, in September, according to The Bookseller website.”
My question to you is: Will you read Leonard’s book? And if you do, is it because you liked Fifty Shades of Grey or because you disliked it?
Curiosity is a powerful element in why I pick books. I’ll wait and see if more info comes out about the book before I decide.
Crazy – Fifty Shades of Grey has seriously shaken up the reading world no matter how you look at it!
