Dear John

February 1, 2010

I’m not going to lie, I am a complete sucker when it comes to romance movies/stories. The older I get, the more they just pull me in and consume me. I can’t help it.

Last week, when watching one of my usual shows, probably The Biggest Loser or something, I had the pleasure of seeing a short trailer for the movie “Dear John”. From the very moment, the trailer began, I knew it was a movie I would have to see. I couldn’t wait for the movie though to know more about the story and found myself without even realizing it, quickly going to amazon to see if there was a book, and to my luck – there was/is! At least I know that I’m not the only crazy woman out there as within a day, amazon’s stock had been depleted and their website stated there would be a 1-2 week delivery. I couldn’t wait that long, so Saturday I made a point to go to my local Chapters with hopes that they would have a copy left for me. I was in luck!

I got home around 4:30 Saturday afternoon and immediately found myself curling up on the couch with my new book. Even though I was currently part way through “The Girls”, I just couldn’t wait and had to start reading “Dear John” right then and there. I honestly only put the book down to eat and sleep, and then to do my barn work Sunday morning. Last night in bed, with a tear in my eye, I finished “Dear John”. I read the book basically in a day and loved every single word, on every single page.

I warned C last night that I’m going to have to go and see this movie when it gets to the theaters. He said that he would take me. I have the best bf ever!

    The book is awesome!! I really want to see the movie, but I know I'm going to cry. Soooo I've decided to wait until it comes out on DVD so I can cry in the privacy of my own personal movie theater…erm I mean house!

    I received the book for Christmas and finished it in two days easily! Sooo good, I love Nicholas Sparks. I'd recommend reading anything he writes! Also saw the movie, it was good just very different than the book which is disappointing since the book is SOOO good!
