This week's topic is:
Most Romantic Book or Movie Ever:
I seriously didn't know how I was ever going to write about this topic. I mean, I've read so many romantic books. After all, my favorite genre is romance!
So, I decided against trying to narrow my choice down to one book and instead decided to write about the "Most Romantic Movie Ever". The fact that it was a book first isn't lost on me. However, I haven't read the book, so I'm going to be focusing on the movie.
Without further ado my choice for this topic is:
The Longest Ride
When I was brainstorming romantic movies, my husband actually suggested "The Longest Ride". If a man thought it was romantic, it must be romantic! (He then went on to suggest "The Water Boy", but I digress... lol)
After thinking about this movie for a few minutes, I had to agree that it was extremely romantic. But, for more reasons than what you may think.
Yes, it stars Scott Eastwood and he's a cowboy! (oh, baby!) Yes, it is based on a Nicholas Sparks book (instant romantic hit). Yes, the main characters, Sophia and Luke, fall in love (it wouldn't be very romantic if they didn't).
However, the part of the movie that really drew me in were the scenes with Ruth and Ira. I don't know if it was the time period, the costumes or the love letters but their story was so very romantic!
I loved the dual timeline of the movie. I loved everything about this movie! The fact that it is a tear-jerker makes it all the more spectacular. And the ending! Ah, the ending was such sweet sorrow. I loved every minute of this movie.
If you haven't seen "The Longest Ride", I suggest watching the trailer below and then finding some way to stream the movie because you're going to want to watch it!
Honorable Romantic Movie Mentions:
The Lake House
Pride & Prejudice (2005)
So, what do you think is the most romantic book or movie ever?
