At the beginning of July I set a rather lofty goal for myself to read 20 books in the month. So how am I doing? Not bad, though I am bit off target. So far I have read 10 books this month and starts on four others. I've read some good books and some not-so-good books.
The Vow by Kim and Krickett Carpenter falls in to the latter category. Don't get me wrong. I like the premise of the book---a young married couple, deeply in love stay committed to each other and their marriage after a head injury causes amnesia and a personality change. The book, written from a Christian point of view, is also very inspiring and refreshing. It just isn't very well written and it seems that it was written because of the movie, not the other way around. Though I understand that there is much more in the book about the couple's religious beliefs than the movie portrays. I am interested to see what Hollywood did with the Carpenter's love story. I recommend that you skip the book and head to theater instead.
