Chrissy Teigen is a little late jumping on the bandwagon, but the model decided that the erotic best-seller Fifty Shades of Grey would make for fun holiday reading on her beach vacation in Mexico.

"Need a book for our holiday away," she Tweeted on Thursday. "Kind of want to read 50 shades and basically mystery science library it for you via twitter."

Then she shared a pic of "two riveting reads" she'd purchased – Fifty Shades and Seal Team Six. And it all went downhill from there.

Teigen, 28, didn't get very far into the tale of Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele before throwing in the towel.

"Annnnd I'm done," she revealed on Friday, sharing a pic of E.L. James's book discarded on the sand. "2 pages in thank you for enjoying mystery science library."

But in the interests of "science," she tried again.

And failed.

"I have an extremely high pain tolerance. But I honestly don't think I can do this," she wrote. "This book is f---ing horrendous."

"Throwing this in the ocean," she threatened.

But then she came up with a better idea.

She buried it in the sand.
