“The Longest Ride” by Nicholas Sparks

17407748Sorry, I’ve been law schooling and it’s hard and scary and there’s a ton of not fun reading. But I finally finished this book that my lovely boyfriend gave me for my birthday! Which was four months ago… But hey, better four months later than not at all, amirite?

Anyway, this book is typical Nicholas Sparks-esque romance and such. I like his concepts a lot but sometimes his dialogue just makes me think, “Real people in a relationship would not say these words.” But apparently it works for these fictional characters. I just think if I never used contractions when I spoke to my boyfriend he would think something was defective and he would return me for a newer model.

I digress. I just want to see this movie now so I can complain about how much better the book is. Then I can watch the movie a second time to actually pay attention to it as a movie.

Law school takes up a TON of time but I’ve been reading for funsies to retain my sanity. Probably should be using that free time to study for impending finals, but whatevs. I’ll just keep putting it off until I can do so no longer. At that point I will put down the books. Until Christmas break.

Next on the list is the second book in the Matched trilogy by Ally Condie, called “Crossed.” It’s been a while since I finished “Matched,” but I started listening to “Crossed” as an audiobook today. I also have to continue reading the Harry Potter series. I’ve gotten through the first two, but that means five more to go.

Yay books!
