This used to be a private blog, I am now going to change it over to a book review blog. Hope you will stick around to see what I am currently reading, what I think about the books that I have recently read.

Have any of you
seen The Vow starring Channing Tatum and Rachel McAdams? My sister wanted to
see this movie in the cinema, but after I saw the trailer, I figured I did not
want a repeat of our The Notebook catastrophe. O yes you don’t know about our
When The Notebook
was in the cinema, I think I was in about 10th grade, I am not sure
at this moment. A bunch of friends and I decided to go watch it. We did not
really know anything about the movie; we just figured it will be a great movie
to watch on a girl’s night out. So we bought our tickets, got some popcorn and
cold drinks, went into the movies all dolled-up, looking pretty. When the movie
was over we had to rush to the bathroom. Needless to say our mascara was all
over our faces instead of just on our eyes. We were about 6 girls and between
us, we had a tissue per person. We were not prepared for this movie. The best
part was getting to the bathroom and seeing that we weren’t the only girls who
were unprepared. The bathroom was filled with girls trying to fix their makeup.
We burst out laughing then.
So you can imagine
my reluctance. So we waited for the DVD, which came out last Monday. We rent it
over the weekend. Let me tell you I was very glad we watched it at home. I
could pause and get more tissues. This movie is one of the best movies I have
watched in a while. The story was moving. I fell in love with Channing’s
character. This guy had to get his wife to fall in love with him, twice!
The movie is based
on the actual relationship between Kim and Krickitt Carpenter, who after being
married for 10 weeks they were in a car accident were Krickitt suffered brain
injuries, and Kim’s love was so deep that he had to make Krickitt fall in love
with him again, since she could not remember him, or their relationship.
Here is a link to
the trailer, and if you can, rent it. It is worth it.
