It's the latest series creating a stir among women. The book "Fifty Shades of Grey" is classified as an erotic romance novel.
"I would read all night take it to work with me and read on my lunch break, I just couldn't put it down," Aubrey Palmer said.
The graphic novel is about the relationship between a business man and a young female student.
It details their erotic relationship, a topic some are too shy to talk about.
"There is a stigma that you are not supposed to be into the subject matter and it's wrong to actually be excited about reading this book," Palmer said.
But people are excited about reading it. And don't expect to find it at the local library. A hundred people in Kern County are on the waiting list to get their hands on the book.
"There are books that just spark interest and you never know what book that might be," library interim-director, Sherri Gomez, said.
While some libraries across the country have banned the book, the Kern County Library is ordering more copies.
"Kern County is part of the San Joaquin Valley library system that's nine jurisdictions from Kern County all the way to Merced County," Gomez said. "There are 500 holds on the book for the San Joaquin Valley library system."
The first book in the series was published a year ago and climbed to the top of the New York Times bestseller's list. Its only grown in popularity, spreading by word of mouth.
"I'm reading it, I've told all my friends about it and my sister and my stepmom," Palmer said. "It's also very well written and it leads you on a journey in their life and you feel really close like you know these people"
Some have criticized the book for being sexist. There is talk of a movie in the future and a big debate over which actors would fill the roles.
