Embarrassed to Admit...: Fifty Shades of Grey by E. L. James. I managed to avoid reading this when everyone else was, but I was curious to see what the fuss was about. It wasn't as horrible as I thought it would be, so I did manage to get through it, but it was pretty bad. In order to not have to read the other two books in the trilogy, I read plot summaries and, boy, was that a hoot! The second and third books sound really stupid.
