She used to be on here a fair amount, not so much for close to a year.

I’ve read the books but haven’t seen the movies. I’m much more a reader than a movie person.
Critically the books are not the most well written pieces of literature but they are tantalising and thought provoking for the genre intended lol.
I enjoyed them, they were fun, not always expertly written but definitely hit the target market....
Middle aged housewives lol

Ohh and is it sinful....???
Well that entirely depends whether a fictional novel can be construed as sinful? Possibly but once we start down that path many novels spring to mind as possibly sinful and to ban, deter or demonise literature then we open a floodgate to artistic and creative expression as controlled by ethics or societal norms and I think history has shown that that outcome is never beneficial.

The 21st century woman has her own money, and doesn't need to rely on her husband's money, FYI.

Surely anything argeted at middle aged house wives would have sandwiches in? ;) So then, as a matter of interest, which was your favorite scene/s?
