And a good book will take fantasizing to a whole new level. I mean, epic love stories and hot-and-heavy scenes are sooo much better in words than they are on the screen, right?? A well written piece will have you swooning for someone you can't even see IRL, which is pretty much like swiping right on Tinder, only better. This unexpected love story between a year-old woman with Asperger syndrome and a hired male escort became a sensation in , and for good reason: Hoang charms readers with a complex protagonist and inspired critics to reconsider what makes a modern romance novel.

Skip navigation! A few years ago, people around the world were completely incapacitated by a literary phenomenon. I saw rows of mothers reading the book in chaise lounges while their kids splashed in swimming pools. I saw people hiding the book's cover behind other books on the subway. I myself took the book out from the library and read it during college orientation. Still, E. Yet, with Fifty Shades of Grey, that's exactly what happened.

No matter how you feel about Fifty Shades of Grey as a book or film, its meteoric rise in popularity has put the spotlight on a frequently misunderstood and underappreciated genre of pop culture that deserves the attention: erotic fiction. The common misconception about the genre is assuming the word "erotic" immediately translates to smut or filth or straight-up pornography. People seem to forget that erotic is a blanket term for anything that turns us on sexually, and the beauty of turn-ons is that they're different for everyone. Same goes for the world of erotic fiction. Not every erotic novel revolves around BDSM, billionaires, and mousy brunettes, but the most popular titles do have one thing in common: a great love story.
