Fifty Shades Withdrawals

Don't laugh.
But seriously, I am having withdrawals from reading the fifty shades trilogy.
So, one day I was just wondering what all the fuss was about and downloaded the sample for the first book on my kindle. After finishing that, it leads you to the page to buy it and I didn't hesitate for a second. I bought the trilogy set on kindle.
A few days later I finished it. While I was reading, I would actually put off doing things, and rather find myself laying in bed all propped up reading my kindle. It was kind of pathetic. I would rather read than do things in the real world. What is worse is that the drama and story going on in the book affected my real life! When I wasn't reading, I was thinking about what was going on, and the events in the book would be what I lived in life. Not literally, but mentally. This all sounds too lame to be true. But I'm trying to be honest here.
After finishing it, I was bored. I literally didn't know what to do with myself. I didn't want to do anything except read and I had read it all. My life suddenly was boring because I was living vicariously through their story. It was my world...I looked forward to diving into that world each day and now that I'm done, I don't know what to do.
When I finished, I looked on my kindle for other books to read, in any genre. I found nothing I wanted to read. I found books I wanted to read, but when I started reading them I was only thinking about Fifty Shades and therefore, not involving myself in the other books at all.
I don't know why I want to keep reading this story, it isn't like it left me hanging or anything. It summed up really well at the end. So I didn't want to keep reading due to incompleteness, but rather to keep living the life. I'm Lame.
Now, don't get me wrong, I am not referring to the sex. I'm actually referring to the story, which is why this romance/erotic story hit it big. You don't often see erotic romance in the headlines, this is because it's usually too corny and doesn't have a good story line. That's why this one stands out, it's beautiful. Truly.
I have nothing but good words, it was a beautiful story, and extreme, which happens to be a common trait in the books I honestly enjoy.... I feel like such a fan girl, but I'm sad there's no more to read and that I only got to vicariously live that life for a few short days.
As a result of this book, I learned more about wines & champagnes (I'm being serious). Also, I had more sex that week hahahaha (for real, though).

Alright, go ahead and laugh at me. BUT don't be shy and hide your story about a good book that took over your life! I want to read it!

Until Next Time!
