Summer reading update: How Keanu Reeves is making me read less

Hi beauties! I thought it was about time I gave you guys a reading update since I haven’t done one in literally forever. As a law student with no summer job when the semester ended I was like, I have so much time on my hands. I’m going to read all the books! But then something monumentous happened. I developed a crush on Mr. Breathtaking himself, Keanu Reeves.

I’ve always known of Keanu Reeves. I knew he was in Speed and The Matrix. I knew he was part Asian. What I didn’t know was that he was hella hot and such a cool dude.

Basically it all started when I watched Always Be My Maybe. I knew Keanu was in it, but I watched it mainly for Randall Park. When Keanu came on screen I was like, No. No. No. That cannot be Keanu Reeves. Why did no one tell me he was this hot and this funny? How did I miss this? The seed for my crush was planted at that moment.

As pretty much everyone with an internet connection knows, this is the year of Keanu. He’s everywhere. It’s no surprise that my crush on him grew exponentially. Not only is he super good looking at any age, but the more I learned about him, the more I liked him. He’s such a humble and down to earth guy. Like did you know he owns a publishing house called X Artists’ Books and published a poem he wrote called Ode to Happiness? He also owns a motorcycle company called Arch Motorcycle. Talk about getting a guy who can do both. So swoon-worthy.

To satisfy my Keanu Kraving (a term I just coined right now) I decided to watch as many of his movies as possible. Prior to this crush I’ve only watched bits and pieces of Speed and The Matrix; nothing substantial.

As of the writing of this blog post I have watched the following movies that feature Keanu in some capacity:

  • Always Be My Maybe
  • Toy Story 4
  • The Matrix
  • John Wick
  • John Wick: Chapter 2
  • John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum
  • Destination Wedding
  • The Neon Demon
  • SPF-18
  • Point Break (currently watching)

And I’m just getting started. I still have more movies left on my Keanu binge. As you can see, this cuts into my reading time significantly. I’m not reading as much as I would like to. But I’m 100% okay with that because Keanu Reeves. Enough said.

Have you fallen prey to the Keanussance? Let me know in the comments!

    Omg YES. I’m all for Keanu. I’ve always had such a huge crush on him and I honestly don’t know why he hasn’t been more popular (until now). I love his movies–even the ones that weren’t rated so well, like The Lake House (with Sandra Bullock!). So swoon worthy. All the swooning all the time for this guy!
