Top 5 sexiest books: That will get you hot and bothered.

 

Still going on the Valentines theme here is my top 5 sexiest books. Disclaimer: these are the books that I have read so I’m not going to list books that I have not read. 

 

The Story of O by Paulin Reage 

 

Top 5 sexiest booksYou thought Fifty Shades of Grey is raunchy? Think again this is the original Fifty Shades of Grey published in 1954 under the pen name of Pauline Reage, the author stated she wrote the novel under series of love letters to her lover.

 

The themes of the book consist of bondage, anal sex, objects inserted into women and branding.

 

Here is a synopsis

 

The Story of O relates the progressive willful debasement of a young and beautiful Parisian fashion photographer, O, who wants nothing more than to be a slave to her lover, René. The test is severe—sexual in method, psychological in substance… The artistic interest here has precisely to do with the use not only of erotic materials but also erotic methods, the deliberate stimulation of the reader as a part of and means to a total, authentic literary experience.

 

  1. Delta of Venus by Anais Nin 

 

Top 5 sexiest booksPublished in 1977 but the stories were written in 1940’s it is a collection of short stories. Although sometimes the book has sexually graphic scenes, I loved her writing its rich, poetic, and stimulating.

 

Synopsis

 

In Delta of Venus Anaïs Nin penned a lush, magical world where the characters of her imagination possess the most universal of desires and exceptional of talents. Among these provocative stories, a Hungarian adventurer seduces wealthy women then vanishes with their money; a veiled woman selects strangers from a chic restaurant for private trysts; and a Parisian hatmaker named Mathilde leaves her husband for the opium dens of Peru. Delta of Venus is an extraordinarily rich and exotic collection from the master of erotic writing

 

  1. A sport and past times by James Salter

 

Top 5 sexiest booksAnther of top 5 sexiest books published in 1967 a young adult novel set in 60’s this is a sad story about a Yale dropout who falls for a French girl. The story is told from the perspective of the unnamed unreliable narrator so there is a surprise ending.

 

Synopsis

 

As nearly perfect as any American fiction I know,” is how Reynolds Price (The New York Times) described this classic that has been a favorite of readers, both here and in Europe, for almost forty years. Set in provincial France in the 1960s, it is the intensely carnal story—part shocking reality, part feverish dream —of a love affair between a footloose Yale dropout and a young French girl. There is the seen and the unseen—and pages that burn with a rare intensity

 

  1.  Women By Charles Bukowski 

 

Top 5 sexiest books Written by one of my favorite authors and published in 1974. I love the honesty and simplicity of his writing no big fancy words but straightforward vulgarity. It was so vulgar that made me both laugh out and be shocked at the same time.

 

A piece of dialogue from the book.

 

“I want to fuck you it’s your face.’”

“What about my face?”

“It’s magnificent I want to destroy it with my cunt.”

 

Synopsis

Low-life writer and unrepentant alcoholic Henry Chinaski was born to survive. After decades of slacking off at low-paying dead-end jobs, blowing his cash on booze and women, and scrimping by in flea-bitten apartments, Chinaski sees his poetic star rising at last. Now, at fifty, he is reveling in his sudden rock-star life, running three hundred hangovers a year, and maintaining a sex life that would cripple Casanova.

 

  1. Tropic of Cancer by Henry Miller.

 

Top 5 sexiest booksAnd the last one in top 5 sexiest books published in 1934 banned from the United States for being too risqué this autobiography of the author while he lived in Paris. One of the most shocking rather funny quote from the book I remember I nearly choked when I read this xD

 

“Yes, he knows how to build fire but I know to inflame a cunt.”

 

Scandalous 0.o

 

Now hailed as an American classic, Tropic of Cancer, Henry Miller’s masterpiece, was banned as obscene in this country for twenty-seven years after its first publication in Paris in 1934. Only a historic court ruling that changed American censorship standards, ushering in a new era of freedom and frankness in modern literature, permitted the publication of this first volume of Miller’s famed mixture of memoir and fiction, which chronicles with unapologetic gusto the bawdy adventures of a young expatriate writer, his friends, and the characters they meet in Paris in the 1930s. Tropic of Cancer is now considered, as Norman Mailer said, “one of the ten or twenty great novels of our century.

Behind Closed Doors By by B.A. Paris

 

 five thrillers to read this summerThe first on this list of five thrillers to read this summer. This book is chilling, it’s about Grace and Jack the envy of all couples, or so it seems. He has the looks (if you like the George Clooney feel in a man.) and wealth. She’s beautiful and elegant. They are never seen apart, it seems like true love. But why does she never meets her friends for coffee, although she doesn’t work? Why does she never answers her phone? How does she cooks those elaborate meals and still remains so slim. But more puzzling, why are there behind bars on the windows?

Behind Her Eyes by Sarah Pinborough

 five thrillers to read this summer

 

 

This had to the best thrillers to read this summer, if not this year. I can’t say much because everything can be a spoiler. It’s famous for its ending and I assure you its mind blowing. I can’t presume that you will like it but to me it was simply brilliant. Louise is a single mother who meets a man in a bar and kisses him even though she knows he’s married. When Louise arrives at work on Monday, she meets her new boss, David, the man from the bar. His wife is Adele, a beautiful woman who’s new to town. Louise and Adele become friends. Louise has an affair with David. Adele seems terrified of her husband. You’re in for a surprise for this one.
