I didn't want anything to do with this book/movie. As most people who know me know, I hate liking things that are cool "in the now". I didn't watch The Office until after the 3rd season. I didn't watch scrubs until it was well into it's 4th or 5th. I didn't watch Desperate Housewives until earlier this year (and quickly fell out of it). But while on vacation my sister, who is an English teacher and reads lots and lots of books, told me the Time Traveler's Wife was really good. I saw the trailer for the movie, and it made me laugh. It seemed like the main character was just whining, "you're never home, you're always off time traveling". But I bought the book Wednesday night, and started reading it yesterday. I finished it last night at 1am. I couldn't put it down. It was amazing. Sure, there are loopholes and whatnot, but the pure romance helped me to look past that. Unfortunately, what always happens, happened. I read the book, loved it, felt it too much, and cried until 3am. This is why I don't like romantic movies or books. I just feel too much. I feel silly now this morning. But looking forward to seeing the movie later tonight. $20 my next post is about my new celebrity crush on Eric Bana.
What books make you feel like this? I'm a masochist, I want another.
