So, my husband...

We were both laying in bed reading the other night - I was reading Shiver byShiver Maggie Stiefvater
and Matt was reading one of the Dresden Files books by Jim Butcher. I was nearing the end of this amazing book and crying because it's absolutely gut-wrenching - beautiful, painful and uplifting. For those who won't read a book with a sad ending, this ends well - and it's about shape shifters.

But anyway, I was reading...and crying...like you do and Matt, never looking up from his book, hands me a tissue and says, "I thought you'd vowed to never read a Nicolas Sparks book."

I stared at him for a minute after blowing my nose and told him to fuck off. It seemed like the only reasonable response at that point - but I couldn't help but laugh. Honestly...like I'd read an N.S. book - no offense, Mr. Sparks, but there's more than enough depressing in the world. Thank goodness I have Matt around to make me giggle.

So funny. I can't read N. Sparks either. They never end well.

I read one...once, and made the same vow. NS, you are very talented, but I'm just too soft.
