Book club: 8 raunchy books you don't want to read in public
While public opinion is generally divided on the phenomenon that is the sexually charged Twilight fanfiction known as Fifty Shades Of Grey, one thing we can all agree on is that it was super weird to see people reading it on the train. Since the kinky side of the book is so well documented it meant that every time you saw somebody reading it with a little smirk on their face you just knew they were reading a sex scene, and with the publishing industry regurgitating similar covers to take the guess work out of your book-buying experience there's no hiding the fact that your book choice comes with a dollop of kink.
While erotic fiction isn't the first genre I reach for when choosing a book (mostly because I read almost exclusively on the train and blush like a bandit at anything remotely sexual) I have to admit that as long as a book has well-crafted characters, a good storyline and some good old-fashioned conflict then that's what really matters. For now, let's just say that what happens between the pages is between the characters, me and that guy with the knowing smile sitting in the chair opposite.
