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!
