Book & Movie Date

I love to read, a thing people either love or hate to do. I have this thing that if someone ever recommends a book anywhere I will write it down just for future reference. I have lists of books to read everywhere. When will I ever get to read all of them? And I love to buy them. The second I walk into Costco, I go straight to the book section and usually always end up buying a book, disregarding when I will find time to read it. So in my high school there are posters of books that are favorites of teachers/faculty, and one of my teachers put up a poster for Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen. So I just stored that information thinking, one day I'll read it. So when I heard a movie was coming out, I knew I had to read it. Always read the book before the movie! And it was my lucky day when I walked into Costco the book was there and I bought it, and read it.

P.S. You might be wondering... why Costco? Answer: the books are wayy cheaper there. (:

Book Review:
I actually enjoyed this book. It was interesting. There were descriptive parts that were kinda weird, but I liked the story. It's different from anything I've ever read before. It's not one of my favorites, even though I'm big on romance in books and movies and this had a lot, but I liked it, and I would recommend reading it.
I want to keep this short and sweet, so I'm not summarizing what happened in the story. Read the back cover when if you get the book. (:

So after reading I thought, well the movie's out, I must watch it.

Movie Review:
I liked the movie wayy more than the book. It was just less complicated with characters and dates/times. I know they had to shorten things to fit into an hour and forty minute movie, but it ended up being better. Rob Patty and Reese Witherspoon did a good job. Go watch it! (:

Anyways, it's Saturday night Sunday morning so time to get to bed.

Sounds like the book would be a fab read, I have always liked the books more than the movies though.

Everything is better in your own head. :)
