So we did.
I will never be the same.
I expected this cute, quirky, coming of age story and though I got that in a lot of ways, it was also SO much more. I can't even explain how much more it was. I laughed. I cried. I fell in love. More than that I was MOVED. Moved in a way I haven't felt in a long time, or at all.
It's ridiculous because I'm a writer and I can't put into words how amazingly beautiful this movie was.
What I can say is, I've never felt anything like it. That THAT movie is what I strive for. I would give anything to make a reader feel the way I felt after watching that movie. To move someone so much.
I've been in funky reading quirks lately. I haven't been really GRABBED by much. I haven't felt characters to the marrow of my bones the way I felt Charlie, Patrick and Sam. It's days later and I'm still thinking about their story. I want to read that. I want to write that.
What's the last book or movie to really MOVE you?
And don't forget, we're in the final days of Steph Campbell's Paying it Forward giveaway where you can enter to win about fifty books (including paperbacks of mine).
Lastly, if you didn't see my suprise post from yesterday, scroll down. It's a fun one :)
And I am totally reading Perks soon!
