DAYS 68-69

Day 68:

i stole this from her facebook :)

I didn't really do anything this day other than work. When I did come home however, Sara was back! She went to Disney for a week with her family and had come back to Athens that night. So now, although it's summer, everyone is here in the apartment. As for the rest of Athens, I cannot say the same. It's not nearly as busy as it normally is which is weird, but I like it.

Day 69:


On the list of books that I pick out for Sara to read, Message in a Bottle was one of the Nicholas Sparks choices. Sara finished it a while ago so when I was home this weekend, I stole it from my ma and brought it back here. We watched it tonight! I still liked it a lot and Sara was baking most of the time so I don't know how she felt about it and Kayla thought it was another predictable girly movie. In my opinion, the book is better than the movie, but this is one of the better film adaptations of a Nicholas Sparks book.

Today, I made a trip to my dad's house. I always steal books from my stepmom (she's my Nicholas Sparks library), but I've never taken one of my dad's. Well that all changed, I brought Bag of Bones by Stephen King and Deal Breaker by Harlan Coben home with me! I also took some books for Tammy to read. She kept The Love Season, The Time Traveler's Wife, Water for Elephants, and Dead Until Dark. I can't wait to finish my book now and start the others!


  1. I agree, I think it was one of the better Nicholas Sparks movies....but I still think Kevin Costner in any kind of love situation is creepy.

  2. I've never seen this movie, but have always wanted to! I might have to go find it online now haha xo

  3. i've never seen this!!
    or heard about it.... haha.
    i dropped the ball on that! i must check it out now!

  4. LOVE message in a bottle!!!

  5. I've never seen or read Message in a bottle (Don't like Kevin Costner), but loved the Time Traveler's Wife. (both the book and the movie) and just finished Stephen King's Under the Dome, which is a HUGE book, but a pretty fast read.

  6. I've never read the book, but I love the movie! Is it as good as the book?

  7. the movie is good, but i personally think the book is better. of course they change some things in the movie, but i still think you should read the book!

  8. I have never seen it, but the cover looks so lovely.
    Books are always better than movies, so I agree with you.
    Have a lovely weekend.


  9. I read and watched message in a bottle. I so didn't enjoy the film. It was so long and it killed the essence of what nicholas sparks created. I adored the book. Have you read the rescue by N.S?

  10. that's one of the few of his that i havent read! hopefully ill finish all of his soon though. i think i only need to read that one and the choice!
