weekend scenes...

this weekend consisted of...
 trying out a new-ish coffee place.
 uncharacteristically warm weather in january in canada. it was 13 degrees saturday, but the average is usually around -1.
 reading this book (i liked it!), then watching the movie right away (hated it!). (*and trying out new camera apps*)
endless peach bellini's, homemade pizza, and deep fried wings.

ok, seriously though, did anyone read or see the lucky one? i read the book in 2 days this weekend and thought it was pretty good. i was excited to watch the movie once i was done, so on sunday morning, i watched it while dylan was still sleeping. it was so completely different from the book, and not in a good way. so much was left out and changed and i just wasn't a fan. i didn't feel the chemistry between them and she just looked too old for him. i know she's older than in the book, not by much though, and in real life, but they just didn't mesh. the more i think about it, the more i think i hated the movie. meh. but zac efron was still a treat to look at for 1 hour and 40 minutes.

I didn't bother with The Lucky One, book or movie. I feel like Nicholas Sparks' writing has really regressed since becoming so famous, so I tend to bypass his works now :(

Oooh the coffee looks delish!

I saw The Lucky One before I read the book. (which I never do!) after seeing the movie, I didn't really have any interest in reading the book though. I hear there were a lot of differences!

I agree with Brit. Maybe I'm just disappointed as a North Carolinian that his books are so predictable. The Lucky One was the last Nick Sparks book that I read because I was tired of reading the same story over and over.

My fave Nick Sparks "series" (other than The Notebook and The Wedding) are True Believer and At First Sight.
