This month’s BlogHer Book Club selection is Sophie Morgan’s Diary of a Submissive.
It would be nearly impossible to discuss this book without mentioning the whole Fifty Shades of Grey phenomenon. I was really looking forward to Fifty Shades but when I started reading it I was really disappointed, I could only get half way through the second book before I cut my losses and said ‘laters baby’ to the series. I could go on and on and on about the reasons Fifty failed me, but it’s Diary of a Submissive we are talking about, right?
Diary of a Submissive filled the void ‘the other books’ left gaping. Sophie Morgan is a pseudonym because this is a true story… a memoir of a ‘normal’ albeit kinky girl and her realization that she enjoys ‘normal’ albeit kinky men.
I recommend that anyone who loved Fifty read this book to get a grasp on reality and am confident that readers like me, who were let down by Mr. Grey will enjoy this book. Of course, if you aren’t interested at all in graphic sexuality… you might not want to read either.
