Apparently, I wasn’t the only one that raised an eyebrow at these results – I laughed out loud when I read this from fellow reader, Desmond:
“Manny the Main MAN v.s. Fifty the Fast Foot fighter
Lets get ready to RUMBLE!!!!!
*Punch* *Punch* *Euuuuu blood* * Uppercut* *Block*
and the winner was….Manny
*records scratches* and the crowds looks to each other, and winces.
You mean Manny Manny? Payne’s Manny? Dr. Manuel Manello? Butch’s possible half brother Manny? That Manny? He won Goodreads Choice Awards over Fifty?
Usually I love all things J.R. Ward (I even have the standard jail issued Cellie tattoo) but Manny? At the risk yet again to my Man card, he didnt do it for me. He was cool but not comeonman (excuse my southern drawl).
Fifty is literally 50 shades of F***ed up-ness (wait is that a word?) but he’s cooler than a polar bear’s toe nail way cooler than Manny. I guess second place aint bad but I wonder if we can request a recount.
P.S.- I’m super stoked for “Eden” by Jamie McGuire.
and I love your blog!
Laters Baby *in my Fifty’s voice*
Thank you Desmond. That made my day!! LOL!
But of course we can cheer anyway, because E.L. James was ecstatic that Fifty received such props!! Here’s what she posted:
Thank you, thank you, thank you to each and every one of you who voted for Fifty Shades of Grey in the Goodreads Choice Awards… I am beyond thrilled to come second and doing cartwheels around my kitchen. This really has made my year.Thank you once again for your awesome, awesome support.
I’m with you and Desmond. As big a fan of BDB as I am, Manny doesn’t hold a candle to Fifty.
Tickled by your choice of words!!! Laters baby…still makes my butterfliey fly!!!!!! Fifty has my vote!!!!!! Seriously, no comparison for me!
After that comment I am adding Desmond to my virtual BFF list.
Yeahhh… his “Laters baby” made me giggle like a schoolgirl 😉
Ya’ll sure know how to make a guy smile.
Desmond – couldn’t have said it better myself. xxx
I am with you all, Manny over Fifty??? Not even close! Can’t wait for my next Fifty Fix!
My palm is twitching reading this. I totally love the BDB but fifty is my fave out of the two. There needs to be a RECOUNT (shouty capitals) 😉 xx
I LOVE SHOUTY CAPITALS!!!!!!! hehe
