The Book Boyfriend Tag

Howdy!

I’ve been wanting to do this tag for a few months now, but I’ve needed time to think about my answers a bit. You’d think I would have all of my favorite book boyfriends straight but I don’t. I wish I had maybe then this post would have been a lot easier for me!

I found this tag on Jayati’s blog, so you’ll have to go visit it afterwards. She’s done a few others in the past that I have thought about doing too, but one step at a time here! Let’s start this post shall we?

Most Romantic Boyfriend

I feel like Augustus Waters or Gus from John Green’s The Fault In Our Stars is probably the most romantic dude that still haunts my mind but in a good way! He was so charming and he really pulled me into the story. I still think Ansel Egort was the perfect Gus because he had that cute baby face that I pictured for Gus everytime I would continue on. The end of his story about killed me but I still love him!

Dark & Moody Bad Boy With A Good Side

I think I have to say, Will Traynor of Me Before You. He is the only one–besides Damon Salvatore–that goes well with this question. .

Will was a troubled man after he become paralyzed, one of the things that he let himself do was become very bitter with his new life. He hated being the way he was and even though I understand where he is coming from, I also feel like he just gave up on everything. However, he was still charming and full of humor which is how he and Lou got so close because they basically matched with their personalities.

Paranormal Boyfriend

The only one that came to my mind was Stefan Salvatore. I have always loved Stefan! He was the one that initially got me interested in The Vampire Dairies. I don’t think any of my family actually believes that since I love Ian Somerhalder so much but I have always loved Stefan’s story compared to Damon’s .He had a good heart, thanks to Lexi of course, and I really wish I had completed the Stefan’s Dairies now!

Boy You’d Be Friends With Benefits With

Oh boy! This is actually really difficult because I have a couple as sad as it is. My answer at the moment is Sedric Lionheart from the Sinners Of Tour series by Olivia Cunning. Between him and Eric Sticks, they’re both members of the casual sex team. I still prefer Sed over Eric, even though I love drummers more than lead singers,. I mean, I am my mother’s daughter after all!

Your Soul Mate

I think I will forever have a weakness for the cool, slightly gorgeous high school boys and I definitely love Josh from To All The Boys I’ve Loved by Jenny Han. I did the same thing as Lara Jean and tried to stay far away from my sister’s exes. You can continue to be friends with them, but you can never date them, I’m in my late 20’s and that’s still a rule that I go by!

Boyfriend You’d Venture Anywhere With

The first person I thought of was Ron Weasley, mostly because I would want to explore the magical world outside of London and Scotland, which is a little shocking for me to say because I love England’s history in general but I just want to see what other places in the world through his eyes I guess!

Boyfriend You’ Want To Be Stranded On A Desert Island With

Hmmmm… I am torn between Ash from Roxy Sloane’s book The Invitation and Trey from the band “Sinners” in Olivia Cunning’s series that I’ve mentioned many times in this post already! Trey is my favorite out of everybody, while Jace is probably second in line.

What is clever about this though is that if I could get both of them on the island, it would work out pretty well for Trey anyways because he’s bisexual. I don’t know if Ash would object on it, but I would be a happy camper if it worked out to my advantage!

Most Badass Boyfriend

The only one I thought worked with this, was Marc of the Kaylpso Masters’s series Rescue Me Saga since he rescued Angelina from her crazy and abusive ex-boyfriend. Technically, all of the guys featured in the series are badasses, but I think Marc is my favorite of the bunch!

Well I think I am done. If you enjoy doing easy blog tags, then you should definitely try this one out on your blog. If you actually decide to do it, please link it back to mine so I can take a look at your answers! I felt like a teacher saying that, but I would like to check out the books you’ve read too!

Do you have any book boyfriends? Have you read any of the books I’ve mentioned above? If you have any suggestions that you think I should check out, let me know!

Writing Prompt: One Touch

Howdy!

I’m back with another post, hopefully this one will be on the lighter side of things compared to last week’s story! I found the prompt on Pinterest again, but what drew me to it was it reminded me of a song that I really love, and it’s called “Touch” by Natasha Bedingfield. I am obsessed with this song and when I saw this prompt, I was like “yes!” Apparently I have wanted to do this for a while and didn’t even know about it until now.

Since the prompt has two people, I think I’m going to try to write two people’s point of view on this post. I’ve never done this before, so please don’t judge me for my mistakes. Now here is the prompt for today, I hope you all enjoy it!

Coffee and papers flew into a mess as the two strangers collided on their hurried paths, unaware their destinies were now intertwined.


Jack

I cannot believe I am so late. I’m never late getting to work. Jack thought to himself while he stood in line at the coffee spot, just two blocks away from his apartment. He looked ragged, his face was a mess and his suit was wrinkled since he forgot to iron them after removing them from the dryer this morning. He knew his chance of impressing his bosses was lost now, but yet let out a big sigh while seven others stood in front of him waiting to order their coffee and breakfast pastries.

He had only been in the city for about three months, and was surprised by how fast he was able to find a job for himself in such short amount of time. He tried to send his resume everywhere he could think of, but it was a big city and figured it would very difficult to find a job when everyone else was looking for work as much as he was, so when he came home from job hunting to find an opening for a position at a place he applied was the shock of a lifetime. However, he hadn’t been there for a week, and he’s managed to fuck it all up.

After waiting in line for close to seven long minutes, it was finally Jack’s turn to order and as let out another big sign and started talking to the cashier in front of him, the door rang somewhat quietly as a person came into the place, but Jack wouldn’t hear it, he was such in a rush that he managed to block out any outside noises around him. He was just there to get a strong cup of joe and figure out a story to explain why he was late to his bosses. Coffee sat on the counter, steaming out of the lid as Jack got out his money to pay for it. The girl tore off his receipt and attempted to give him back his change, but he quickly turned away from her and headed for the door.

Stacy

Stacy was a free spirit, ray of sunshine kind of girl. She’s always been this way, but lately life hasn’t been treating her very nicely. When she first moved to the city, she thought it would bring her closer to her boyfriend Travis, since he was always working and couldn’t come home to her as much as they both seemed to wanted, but then one day after coming home from doing her errands she caught her boyfriend in bed with another girl. She was shattered. She was in denial with her family and friends when they tried to tell her how much of a player he was, but like most girls, she thought he cared enough about her that he wouldn’t do anything to hurt her. She risked everything for him and here he was, screwing away her hopes and dreams.

For the past two months she’s been trying to rebuild her life as a single woman. She tried her best to push her feelings back, but if you ever got up to her face-to-face, you’d be able to see the many layers of blush over her cheeks as she desperately tried to mask the steady stream of tears that fell from her eyes every night. She hoped and prayed that her fake smile will divert people’s worrisome thoughts about her love life, but unfortunately, it didn’t.

All wasn’t lost for Stacy though, as she had a great circle of friends to try to lend a hand or a shoulder to cry on; one of those friends recently got her a job at a coffee shop uptown. She knew how much Stacy loved meeting people, she has the perfectly personality to handle various attitudes. Stacy felt grateful for the opportunity, because she definitely needed a job since her ex-boyfriend was the source of her income. Today, she was about to start to learn the ins and outs of what it takes to make coffee and bake breakfast pastries, so she dressed in her favorite outfit: white T-shirt with a matching tulle-like skirt, she also wore a denim jacket on top in case she needed to cover up her upper arms and a pair of white flip-flops. She wasn’t known to wear anything practical, so until she was given a uniform she wasn’t going to change her dressing habits.

She finally made it to the shop, fairly early then she was expected to be there, as she wasn’t supposed to show up until noon to train under the manager, but she wanted to make sure to appear to be a responsible worker. When she entered the front door, it dinged from above and everybody on the other side of the counter looked at her with delight, she gave them a light smile as she let the door close behind her. A part of her felt weird to be standing in the corner of the doorway, but she wasn’t a customer nor a real employer yet so she stood next to the coat hangers, by a table of an elderly couple who smiled and nodded at her. The line to order was dwindling down after the morning rush and she vowed after the male in the half-washed suit left the counter that she’d make her move to the cashier about starting shadowing the manager. Since she knew she had some time to kill, she grabbed herself the local paper and started reading it, but as soon as she began reading the first big story, the man twisted on his toes in a hurry without taking his money, and didn’t see Stacy coming right at him and suddenly she regretted to wear all white on her first day.

What do you think happened to these two characters? All theories are welcomed!

Book Review: “To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before” by Jenny Han

I think the last time I reviewed a book was back in 2016. I lost my reading mojo, even though I continued to go on YouTube and watch over 7 different booktubers on a daily basis, adding new books onto my to be read list on Goodreads. In August 2018, I decided to take a chance and bought my first contemporary, trending book out there, it was Jenny Han’s To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before. Honestly, this book has been on my TBR list for two years, and I thought it would be one of those books that I’d either never want to read or purchase it because it was a bit cheesy. Fast forward to now, I’m thankful that I talked my mom into letting me buy it! And the fact that Netflix was releasing a movie based on it, definitely didn’t hurt either!

Backstory – Taken from Goodreads

What if all the crushes you ever had found out how you felt about them…all at once?

Sixteen-year-old Lara Jean Song keeps her love letters in a hatbox her mother gave her. They aren’t love letters that anyone else wrote for her; these are ones she’s written. One for every boy she’s ever loved—five in all. When she writes, she pours out her heart and soul and says all the things she would never say in real life, because her letters are for her eyes only. Until the day her secret letters are mailed, and suddenly, Lara Jean’s love life goes from imaginary to out of control.

I think I bought this book when the Netflix edition covers were released, because I almost didn’t recognize the title of it until I read the back of it and remembered the name “Lara Jean” so I was a bit intrigued but I also didn’t want to purchase it solely on the fact that it was going to be turned into a movie. I think I really got it for the fact that I hadn’t read anything in over two years and I made it my mission to make time for other things besides blogging throughout the week, so when I saw it, I hoped it would be enough to get me out of my funk and for like two months, it did that for me before I lost it once again. In my defense, I was an idiot and tried to read three books at the same time! Apparently I’m not that kind of a bookworm.

Overall

When I first started reading it, I wasn’t on chapter five yet, and I had already expressed to my parents how much I loved the book! I’ve been out of school, in what feels like forever, but this transported me back to my freshman year and I was seeing the similarities between what I did around all of the cute guys, except I never wrote them all letters. I only did that one and I delivered it in a full cafeteria, and how Lara Jean was around both Josh and Peter.

I think what I loved the most about her was how different or quirky as Peter describes her. I think that’s actually a perfect way to explain her to people. She is mostly a home body, likes to hang out with her family, and best friend Chris then getting drunk and/or high with the rest of the party goers. Besides all of the drama that ensues in the book, I honestly think the letters going out to the boys was the best thing for her. It got her out of comfortable shell and I think she started to learn something about herself as a person.

As far as the boys go, I was going back and forth with them. In the beginning, I was pulling for Lara Jean and Josh, but the more it continued I was really loving this “relationship” between her with Peter. I think my favorite outing between these two characters was their first one, where Peter takes her to go estate shopping at this old house. This is where you get to see Peter in a new light, he’s away from his friends and his attention isn’t on the ex-girlfriend Gen, they’re bonding throughout this little adventure. This is also the readers first glance at Lara Jean getting out of her comfort zone too.

Lastly, I need to talk about something that was added at the end of the book, and I’m not totally sure if the previous editions included them, but in my copy we get recipes of the cookies that were talked about towards the end of the book. I’ve only come across a book that had a recipe somewhere within the book and that was (weirdly enough) Duff McKagan’s autobiography It’s So Easy (and Other Lies) released in 2011. If you’d like to check out that review, you can click here, but I should say that the review was published in 2012. I wasn’t the best blogger at that time, so please ignore the many mistakes included in it, okay?

Have you read the book To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han yet? What were your thoughts about it? Which character is your favorite in the series?

Writing Prompt: We Could Have Been Happy

Howdy!

We’re in February now and like everybody knows, it’s a month dedicated to love, so in my way of showing a bit of love on here is to write some romantic stories. Honestly, I got the idea to do this after I finished with my Christmas prompts. I just enjoyed coming up with those cute and funny little stories that I thought, “why don’t I continue this for the next holiday?” so here we are! The only issue is that I’m not sure if I’m going to skip the last week of the month or not. I am considering it because it would help me get ready for my plans for March.

All of the prompts were found on Pinterest. I’d even change my mind about a couple of them at the last minute because I didn’t think there was enough variety between them. I didn’t want to be too cheesy or sexual, so hopefully these will be a good medium for everybody! They are ALL free write stories–so if you see a mistake, try your best to ignore it! I’d also like to say that I have tried my best to keep them happy, but as you’ll see it hasn’t happened… Anyways, the first prompts goes like this.

At one point of time, we could have been happy.


We moved too fast, at least that’s what she told me as she packed her stuff that she had recently shoved into my itty-bitty closet. I stood at the base of the bed we just made love in the night before. I was so confused. Why would she have sex with me if she knew she was going to break up with me the next day?

We were only dating three months, she fell just as quickly as I did. I mean, you couldn’t blame me for doing it either. She was the most beautiful woman I’ve seen in a long time. And the fact that I spend a good chuck of my time in a room full of gorgeous women everyday, because of my job as a casting director, she could knock every single one of them out of the ball park. She was tall, brunette, and had the silkiest skin on the planet. She was a goddess and she knew it too.

I watch her pace back and forth attempting to explain her reasoning for breaking us up. She can’t look up at me, but I want her to so bad. I just want to see it on her face, if she’s really done with me, her eyes will say it before her mouth comes out with it. She walks to the closet and removes her clothes on the hangars, and throws them into her suitcase. I try my best to calm her down to meet her gaze, but she will not let me, she keeps pushing me away. I start to wonder to myself, what have I done? I couldn’t think of anything, but that doesn’t mean anything. I know how women are, they like to gossip to one another, so if there was a rumor going around about me and some girl I was casting in an upcoming film, she’d probably know about it before I do.

At one point of time, we could have been happy. Now instead I am standing in the doorway of my apartment feeling distraught. She’s gone. She was here for an hour never giving me a direct answer for her actions, and never told me goodbye. So, I’m here and I have no idea what to do next.

So, what do you think of this little free write, heartbreaking story?

Blogmas | Christmas Movies I Haven’t Seen Yet

12376265_817579255018326_2863614440370404165_n

Howdy!

I’m back for Blogmas! Of course, I’m not blogging everyday this month but I give kudos to anyone that is, because that is very difficult. I’ve done this three years in a row, so my ideas have dwindle down like Santa Claus running out of his toys after a long Christmas night! Forgive me for the metaphor, but I hope you enjoy my holiday inspired posts–by the way, tomorrow’s post isn’t part of it. It’s more of a confessional than anything else!

I love movies a lot, but I always feel holiday films can be pretty cheesy. I like the ones with funny plots and with lots of children in there, but I’ve never liked romantic Christmas inspired films, which is the reason why I blocked out all of the Lifetime and Hallmark channels at the end of October. It’s a corny and overdone plot that somehow gets a whole bunch of people excited for the next one and I don’t understand it!

So, the list below is compiled of popular films that everybody else has seen and enjoyed over the years, but I haven’t had a chance to check them out. I hope you all enjoy!

Miracle On 34th Street (1947)

I will be honest, I was introduced to this movie while I was watching Home Alone because the beginning of the film does play after Kevin discovers everyone has left without him. I’ve had numerous attempts to actually watch both versions throughout my life, but I’ve never been able to clear my mind to devout to it. Everybody says it’s good, but I highly doubt I’ll ever get to watch it.

White Christmas (1954)

I feel extremely guilty about this, but I found this on the AMC channel on Black Friday, but forgot to tell my nana that it would be on that afternoon! I felt so bad! It’s one of her favorite films and I actually will not watch it until she has, so hopefully between my aunt, uncle and I, we can find the black and white version on TV for her to watch finally! I think after she’s seen it again, I will eventually get to it, but until then it’ll sit on this list.

Die Hard (1988)

I really don’t understand how this could be a Christmas film but apparently it is! However, if I’m correct, this might be just unique enough for me to enjoy, because I am a lover of action based films, I just want to know how Christmas is tied into it. I’ve been told that I should watch this franchise along with the Jason Bourne series, but I haven’t found any of them on our movie channels in order, so they all kind of belong on this post.

Jack Frost (1998)

I had to ask my mom if we ever watched this before, she thinks we have but agrees with me that we probably didn’t really like it too much. Michael Keaton is a hit or miss when it comes to him dressing up for various roles. I barely got through Beetlejuice in once piece because of him! What’s interesting is that, you’d think being made into a live action snowman it would be kind of cute, but I’ve always had issues with this part of acting. Now the question is, if it played on our movie channels, would I give it another shot? I would try it out again, only because if I can get through anything vampire and witch inspired films, this should be a piece of cake!

Love Actually (2003)

I find it a little odd that I haven’t seen this yet, because I have been trying my best to let myself watch romantic-comedies without any judgement–this is a lot more difficult then it sounds as seen above! I see this everywhere after Halloween, but I always tend to ignore it. Once I checked out who was in the film, I realized that it has a similar plot like New Year’s Eve where you have a large amount of actors, in different situations and love blossoms in each 20 minute scene. I might have to watch it, because I actually love NYE a lot!

Krampus (2015)

This was the movie that actually inspired me to create this post. I don’t really like creepy films despite the fact that I’m clearly a fan of vampires, witches, and werewolves, but the creatures in this are far beyond what I can take in both day and night. However, I do find the origins of “Krampus” very interesting. Even though this is clearly a thriller, it actually have some truth to it; here in the US, we say to kids all throughout the year that if they’re bad, then they’ll only receive a lump of coal. This has the same idea, but kids are basically being scared into behaving right with these half-goat, half demon beasts. Now you know why I haven’t seen this sucker yet!

I’m pretty sure I am missing quite a few others, but I just wanted to keep this list short and sweet, maybe I will figure out some more to do this again! Plus, it’s still pretty early into the month that I technically have plenty of time to watch one or two of the films on here and several others, so there’s like a 50/50 chance on whether I actually get to do a part two for Blogmas 2019!

Is there any Christmas-y movies that you HAVEN’T seen yet? What kind of genre do you prefer to watch for this time of the year?

Top 5 Steamy Reads!

Untitled

Howdy!

Every once in a while, okay, okay, three times a week I’ll make my way to YouTube and look up some of my favorite BookTubers, and check out their new book hauls and I’m really addicted to watching them, but when they all talk about the same books, it can get a bit boring. Sometimes I have to be a little creative with my words and there are some bookworms who talk about other subjects than say fantasy/sci-fi, so I usually put in the words: “steamy” and “historical fiction” and sometimes I get a good and interesting selection of videos!

Since I haven’t read as many historical books as I’d like, and trust me I have a whole shelf on Goodreads that has over 200+ books on it! I also have a semi large list of romantic books too and I thought I’d write a blog post about my favorite steamy books!

Now you’re all probably wondering what turned me on (no pun intended) to exotica novels, and honestly I think I just wanted to get out of the supernatural/paranormal genre. I didn’t read my first book until I was probably 19 or 20 years old, and no, my first book wasn’t Fifty Shades Of Grey either! I actually read this little novella that cost me about $2.99 and I bought it before my mom went to work one afternoon, and I literally read it in under thirty minutes. It was a quick read as it had over 80 pages and I felt like an idiot afterwards because I thought it would be longer with that price but I was sadly mistaken!

What you’re about to read are the burbs taken from each book on Goodreads plus my thoughts about each one! I also left the reviews I did after I finished the book, some are a little outdated considering I haven’t read a few in a couple of years! If you’ve never read a sexy book before, I wouldn’t close your mind from there, because they can be quite educational, especially for a young disabled woman in her twenties! So let’s not pull the guilt trip on me after this, all right!

Backstage Pass by Olivia Cunning – Read my book review here!

“For him, life is all music and no play…

When Brian Sinclair, lead songwriter and guitarist of the hottest metal band on the scene, loses his creative spark, it will take nights of downright sinful passion to release his pent-up genius…

She’s the one to call the tune…

When sexy psychologist Myrna Evans goes on tour with the Sinners, every boy in the band tries to seduce her. But Brian is the only one she wants to get her hands on…

Then the two lovers’ wildly shocking behavior sparks the whole band to new heights of glory… and sin…” 

Can you imagine on why I decided to read this? This was actually the book I found after I read the first Fifty Shades book. I find it really odd that I even enjoyed this, because back in the day I use to think rock stars were creeps and didn’t deserve real love. Thankfully, Brian and Myrna snapped me out of that!

I am three books away from finishing the whole series! I fully intend on getting Wicked Beat sometime, but probably not in its physical form! I don’t think my dad believed a word of what I said about the third book when I bought it back in 2012!

The Invitation by Roxy Sloane – Read my book review here!

“Hot, English businessman Ashton Pierce made a pact not to screw up his friendship with Justine ‘JJ’ Jenkins over a cheap one-night stand. Now, two years later, he’s going out of his mind with wanting her — but she’s still off-limits. 

Now school is over, and his control is wearing thin. They’ve got one last night together, and he’s determined to make it an experience she’ll never forget.

The one girl he swore off is going to have the night of her life. And with a sexy game of dare on the table, it won’t take long…”

I loved this story! It was even a freaking novella (I bought it while it was free!) and I still enjoyed it! This was the second book that made me really happy I had a Kindle on hand, because the description on Goodreads alone is pretty steamy! And, no, I didn’t want to read it for the fact that our leading man had a British accent, even though I did imagine Henry Cavill as Ashton for the longest time. I’m like Queenie from Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them I have troubles with Brit accents. I really just liked the chase of the two characters and their chemistry.

Nobody’s Angel by Kallypso Masters – Read my book review here!

“When Marc rescued Angelina from an abusive Dom at his fetish club, he never imagined she’d upend his safe, controlled life. But his SAR partner, Luke, a widower, thinks Angelina has been sent to him by his dead wife. Marc knows only he can fulfill her sexual needs, but won’t hurt his friend. When the abusive Dom stalks her, she turns to Marc for help and learns a submissive has power too.”

I have to say when I started reading it, I had some difficulties because it does discuss domestic abuse, and since I read this probably seven months after everything happened with my sister’s relationship. I thought the combination of talking about BDSM and domestic abuse was interesting. I remember when the first Fifty Shades movie came out, lots of people were against it because nobody understood the “rules” of the lifestyle, and I felt this book was very educational as to very sexy. Oh and I might’ve had developed a crush on Marc and Luke later on.

Diary Of A Wanted Woman by Donnee Patrese – Read my book review here!

“Hannah Jones was a wanted woman, not that she thought she deserved all the attention. She knew that she was beautiful with light skin and an award winning smile, but her past led her to believe she was not good enough.

Men flocked to her and it was easy to see why. Who wouldn’t want a woman that was obsessed with sex and willing to do anything in bed?

That was not what made David Castor fall for her, however. David Castor, young wealthy football player, has wanted Hannah from the moment he laid eyes on her. She was everything he always wanted in a woman. She was smart, beautiful and amazing in bed. He would do anything to make her his very own.

Yet he wasn’t the only one. He had competition from a member of his own team. Keith Morgan was a sadist that was looking for the perfect woman to dominate. When he met Hannah, he knew she was the one and it wasn’t hard to convince her.

David knew that his love for Hannah was amazing and was the kind of love that could change people. The hard part was convincing Hannah that she was worthy all the love he had to give.”

I thought this book had relatable moments, mostly for the fact that Hannah thought she deserved a certain kind of love because of the life she’s lived, but in reality it was really her mind messing with her. I believe everyone has had these types of moments in their life. I remember semi liking this book. There were a few mistakes and one thing was that I thought while reading it was the fact that it wasn’t looked over very well, there were lots of misspelling and the format was really bad, but I chose to overlook that and focus on the story itself and even though, it had a difficult plot, it was still hot!

Burn For Me by Lauren Blakely – Read my book review here!

“She’s the one fire he can’t put out…

Jamie Lansing has had it bad for firefighter Smith Grayson for as long as they’ve been friends. Yes, he’s ridiculously charming and she might stare a little too long at his abs, but his dirty-talking, rough-around-the-edges ways aren’t for her. Plus, she knows that as a serial dater, Smith isn’t the type to settle down. But then a terrible, fantastic, mind-blowing mistake leaves her body craving more than one night.

Smith Grayson has only ever had eyes for one woman in town—his best friend Jamie. But convincing her a relationship between them will work is next to impossible with her refusing to see beyond his past. But when she asks for a week of no-strings-attached sex to get him out of her system, Smith knows this is his one chance to prove he’s not just the man she needs in her bed, but the man she needs in her life.”

This was my first book about firefighters. One thing that you learn pretty quickly when you get into the exotica category is that there are generally four types of guys: billionaires, rock stars, firefighters and military. So the fact that I managed to have all four in one post is a bit of an accomplishment for me! This has a LOT of dirty talk in it, and a part of me wanted to put it higher on my list, but I actually didn’t like it enough that I want to read the rest of the series!

Have you read any steamy reads lately? I’m always looking for suggestions!

Favorite Nicholas Sparks Movies!

rather

Howdy!

Wednesday is Valentine’s Day, so if you’re single and don’t want to associate yourself with the day as a whole, I’d be getting your essentials the day before and stay in all day long! Now for those of you who have to work or be around family and/or friends who drive you crazy about the fact that you haven’t met your “soul mate” yet, just breathe and think happy thoughts. I’d still buy one or two bottles of wine for that night just so you’re covered though.

Well, as much as I don’t believe in love at first sight, even though I’m still a sucker for both old school Disney princesses, I have decided that I needed to discuss about my love for Nicholas Spark romance movies. I know, I know!

Before I worked on this post, I decided to put up a poll on both Facebook and Twitter. I figured I’d get a big amount of feedback because I know how much these books and their movies are so lovable, however I didn’t get as many people as I thought I’d get, but everybody seems to enjoy The Notebook and The Best Of Me the most! I’ve decided on four movies to talk about today! I originally had five, but I quickly realized that I’ve actually never finished The Longest Ride. I do remember starting it, but I never made it to the middle of it. I’ll be honest I only wanted to watch it because it had both Scott Eastwood and Britt Robertson in it. I adore the two of them. Hopefully one day finish the rest of the film!

4. The Lost Song (2010) – Miley Cyrus, Liam Hemsworth, Kelly Preston, and Greg Kinnear

Since I’m not exactly into romantic movies, I definitely didn’t watch this immediately after it was released on DVD. I think I saw it after I watched both Dear John and The Lucky One since they both appear to have been released the same year! To my brain, it would have been easier to get through them all at once and when you have a younger sister with a boyfriend at the time, you are looking for hopes that you’re going to have soulmate someday soon and I think that’s how it happened!

Unfortunately, I’ve only seen it once because I honestly didn’t like it as much, I thought it reminded me too much of Hannah Montana, since Miley’s character is into music in this movie. Another thing that these movies are good at, is making me cry! And to think, I did this multiple times to myself. Anyways, since only seeing it once or twice, I don’t really remember everything that happened but I am kind of happy that Miley Cyrus met Liam Hemsworth on that movie and that they’ve been together this long! I just find that really sweet!

3. Dear John (2010) Channing Tatum, Amanda Seyfried

Surprisingly, I have very vivid memories of this movie! I got the idea to do this post because this one was playing on Starz all month long. I haven’t decided whether or not I want to watch it. Like I said, I’m pretty sure Blondie and I actually went out to the movies to see this one, I don’t remember exactly but I think she brought her friends Jayde and Jace, because they all wanted to see it too. They sat next to me while I sunk down in my seat, trying to get through this in one piece. Thankfully we all cried and were pissed off at Amanda Seyfried after it was finished, so I wasn’t too alone in my feelings!

2. The Lucky One (2012) Zac Efron, Taylor Schilling, Blythe Danner

All right, as we continue on this track, the memories are getting stronger and stronger. I definitely remember this one, although there are times where I get it confused with Charlie St. Cloud too because they both have Zac Efron and the military aspect is in it too. I also thought they both were NS movies, but I literally just found out that it isn’t so I had to leave it off of this list.

I think this one is pretty sexual, compared to the other movies, but since I’ve seen such a limited amount of Nicholas Sparks movies, I can’t necessarily say that the others are about the same even TLR is right up there too!  I did enjoy this more than Dear John though, it didn’t really irritate me as much and it was pretty sweet too, but let’s be honest I could only be saying that because Zac Efron is in it!

1. Safe Haven (2013) Josh Duhamel, Julianne Hough, Cobie Smulders

This is definitely one of my favorite movies! I didn’t see this theaters like I did with the others, but I think I did that for a reason. Since dealing with the two above and the other romance movies, I think I’ve finally learned that it’s better to watch these movies in the comfort of your own room! My mom got it for me to watch for a night, and I watched it on my laptop and I really enjoyed it. Everything about it was easy to follow, parts of it were hard to watch because this was the same year that my sister was going through her troubles with her ex-boyfriend at the time, so I had to pause through it a couple of times just to get myself time to relax.

The ending has to be my favorite part though, not because the movie was done, but the content that they added in about a certain character. I am a sucker for those moments when they leave you breathless, it doesn’t happened very often so whenever it does, the movie will be embed into my brain for the rest of my life. Of course, I cried that much harder and basically had to tell my mom that she shouldn’t watch (and she never did) but they were genuine and good tears compared to the ugly crying I did for the others!

Are you a fan of the Nicholas Sparks books or films? What is your favorite?
