Look what I got in the mail yesterday. Front side Avett, Backside Zac-y boy. This is totally going on my desk. How am I supposed to get any work done? Gitte, you freaking ROCK!!! (Love the caption below Zac’s photo. You crack me up!)
And now for a more serious subject. Husband took me to see “The lucky one” yesterday. (Haha. I outed you Heath Hoover!)
Anyway…I know I wrote books that were sort-of contemporary romances. When I finished Slammed my mom said she was shocked that the first book I wrote was a romance, since I’m not into that at all. I’ve never read a romance novel…not even The Notebook. So it kind of hurt my feelings that she thought it was a romance novel. lmao! I’m so clueless about genre it’s unreal.
***I would like to say there are no spoilers in this movie review. But the fact that I didn’t like it may be a spoiler enough to change your mind. So although I give nothing away, that in itself may be enough to stop you from wanting to see it…so if you want to see it don’t read any further and we’ll walk away pretending I loved it!***
Well I thought Zac was just perfect in the movie. However, I didn’t really like the movie. In fact, it grated my nerves so much that I was practically shifting in my seat, waiting for it to be over. In fact, In fact, I left a few minutes before the movie even ENDED. But you gotta understand, I’ve been known to do that from time to time. I don’t have a lot of movie theater patience.
I’m not trying to ruin the movie for anyone. Pretty much everyone else in the theater LOVED it. I guess it was a mixture of the female lead (thought she looked too old for the character) and the fact that I didn’t really like the plot. Now granted, I’ve never read the book so I’m sure the emotions and backstory run a lot deeper, It just didn’t carry over into the movie with me. But I will say that the female lead had a scene that made my heart stop. She’s a VERY good actress, just didn’t feel it between her and Zac.
I don’t know why I felt compelled to do a mini-movie review. I guess because I also feel compelled to tell the world that Zac in the shower is worth sitting through a nerve-grating movie.
