Movie Monday: The Longest Ride and Point Break

Movie Monday is a weekly feature here on my blog, in which I’m rambling about movies I’ve watched lately.

This week I watched one romance and one action movie.


The Longest Ride

the longest ride

The Longest Ride is a movie based on the novel written by Nicholas Sparks.
It follows two love stories, one being placed in our time, and other being placed in the past.

The story follows a bull rider who’s name I forgot, but is played by Scott Eastwood who wants to qualify to go on championship in Las Vegas.
However, some of his old injuries are standing on his way.

He meets a girl and the story goes from there.

Although I did enjoy watching this movie, I also found it to be pretty boring.
I would still recommend it to girls. But please, if you love your boyfriends, don’t make them watch it with you!


Point Break

I watched this movie yesterday mainly because my boyfriend chose it, as he likes extreme sports.

The story is good, nothing special really, but the scenes we got to see in this movie were simply amazing.

The story follows a guy who was an extreme athlete but after the death of his friend he joins FBI. Now, he works on the case to catch other extreme athletes who break the law while completing their list of missions.

All in all, I pretty much enjoyed this movie and would definitely recommend it to everyone who likes to see some gorgeous scenes with nature in it.

Waiting on Wendesday (#8): P.S. I Like You by Kasie West


Waiting on Wendesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. It spotlights upcoming releases we can’t wait to read.

This week I am eagerly anticipating:

p.s. i like you

P.S. I Like You by Kasie West

Publisher: Point

Publication Date: July 26th, 2016

Summary (from Goodreads):

What if the person you were falling for was a total mystery?

While Lily is spacing out in Chemistry one day, she picks up her pencil and scribbles a line from one of her favorite songs on the desk. The next day, someone else has written back to her on the desk! Soon enough Lily and the mystery student are exchanging notes, and lyrics, and even sharing secrets. When Lily finds out that her anonymous pen pal is a guy, she’s flustered — and kind of feels like she’s falling for him. She and her best friend set out to unravel the identity of the letter writer — but when the truth is revealed, the guy is the LAST person Lily could have ever imagined it to be. Now that Lily knows the truth, can she untangle her feelings and gather the courage to listen to her heart?

From beloved author Kasie West (The Distance Between Us) comes an utterly charming story about mixed messages, missed connections, and the magic of good old-fashioned secret admirer notes.

Why am I waiting?

If you know me for some time now, you know that I often like to say that Kasie West is my ya contemporary queen.
I read all of her contemporary books so far and loved every single one of them.
Her books always put me in great mood, I love to reread them and I can’t get enough of her writing.
She also creates awesome characters that I want to befriend with.

Overall, when it comes to this genre, I can’t imagine anyone doing it better then West.

I just can’t wait to see what she cooked for us in her new novel.
I just KNOW I’ll devour this story!
