damn you, Nicholas Sparks! DAMN YOU!!!!

I like to read.

I like pumpkin pie too but there's a point to this post.

Even though I'm somewhat of a sucker for chick flicks, I don't always show my romantic side in person. I do find romantic inspiration in books.

I cried when Edward left Bella in book 2 of the Twilight series. If you didn't read it, you won't get that. And if you did read it and didn't like it, go poo up a rope.

Anyway, a few months ago, I finally took the plunge and saw the movie I'd heard so much about, The Notebook based on Nicholas Sparks' book by the same name. I am not afraid to admit that I cried. I probably would have cried more had I read the book, but there are only so many tears I allow myself to shed in a certain period of time. *wink*

So when I was in Target a few weeks ago, having just finished a book and needed more reading material, I didn't hesitate to purchase The Choice by Nicholas Sparks.

*heavy sigh*

I can't say much more than that without giving away the story so if you haven't read it yet, go to your nearest bookstore immediately. Do not pass GO, do not collect $200, blah blah blah, just get the fucking book, will ya'?!

You had never seen the Notebook? It's amazing isn't it. I love that movie! James Patterson also has some good ones like Suzanne's Diary for Nicholas. That's a good one. Currently, I'm reading a book called I'm With Stupid. It's funny. I recommend it. I'm going to have to look into The Choice. I've become a libraryholic, getting all my books free.

I was just organizing my bookshelf this morning and yes Leave, that fucker James Patterson has a couple of tear-jerkers too! I actually found Suzanne's Diary for Nicholas and Sam's Letter's to Jennifer which, after reading the latter's book slip, I'm thinking I bought it but forgot to read it so I think I'll read that next. I also read just a few months ago Sundays at Tiffany's which, I believe, is his newest one. I rate those romantic novels on a 1-10 tissue rating and that, along with JP's other ones, was a 10 tissue tear-jerker! ;)

Of course, if we're gonna' talk about tear-jerkers, we can't leave out Robert James Waller's The Bridges of Madison County. *heavy sigh*

Boy, you're a mess when you read a book. Whatever you do, stay away from dog books, like Marley and Me.

I have not read the Bridges of Madison County, but I have read Sunday's at Tiffany's. Soooo good. I have read Sam's Letters to Jennifer as well. Since you're a dog person now, you should read Marley and Me.
