"It's Monday! What Are You Reading?" is a meme hosted by Sheila from Book Journey where readers share what they are currently reading, recently read, or plan to read next. This is my first time participating in this meme and I am excited to see what everyone else is reading!
A member of my book club selected "Fifty Shades of Grey" by E.L. James as our group's current read. This book has received massive media exposure due to its graphic content targeted toward female readers. I'd love to hear what others thought of this book.
I recently won a copy of this novel from Random House Reader's Circle and am looking forward to delving into it. Here is a brief description from Good Reads:
It is the late summer of 1938, Europe is about to explode, the Hollywood film star Fredric Stahl is on his way to Paris to make a movie for Paramount France. The Nazis know he’s coming—a secret bureau within the Reich Foreign Ministry has for years been waging political warfare against France, using bribery, intimidation, and corrupt newspapers to weaken French morale and degrade France’s will to defend herself. For their purposes, Fredric Stahl is a perfect agent of influence, and they attack him. What they don’t know is that Stahl, horrified by the Nazi war on Jews and intellectuals, has become part of an informal spy service being run out of the American embassy in Paris.
