Actor. Musician. Heartthrob. Feminist icon (sort of). There's only one Ryan Gosling. Women want him. Men want to be him. Most Tumblr blogs are about him. No mere Hollywood pretty boy, he's symbolic of everything modern manhood should aspire to. Did you see The Notebook? Exactly. Packed with trivia, jokes, and over 100 full-colour photos that graphically illustrate his physical perfection, 100 Reasons to Love Ryan Gosling provides scientifically irrefutable evidence of exactly why Ryan is so damn loveable. Is it because he takes his mom to film premieres? Plays in a hip indie band? Carries his dog through airports? Breaks up street fights? Furthered the feminist cause without even trying? Has no problem with nudity even when the script doesn't strictly require it? It's all these things and more.
THANK YOU PLEXUS, I LOVE YOU!
When the fantastic Brenna at Plexus sent me a copy of this book, I may have screamed a little (a lot)
But admit it ladies *coughs* and gents wouldn't you? For within my hands is an incredible array of Gosling photos and facts.
The first time I read this book, I took in no words, but let's admit it, we knew this would happen,
I was able to stare and drool, whilst taking cold showers at my leisure and genuinely bask in the HOTNESS, that is Ryan!
But then something happened, in the process of stroking his pictures, my mind started to read the words and soon I was learning things that my google image searches had never taught me before.
I discovered his favourite movie, how he attended school, who his distant cousins are.
I even found out things about his mum!
The BEST thing I discovered though, is how much me and Ryan have in common, which has only made me more determined to make this long distance relationship we have going on, really work.
I love this book, it's funny, factual and full of GOSLING.
I would (do) read this daily, it's bed time reading for grown ups and guaranteed sweet dreams (or hot nights)
