For the love of Nicholas Sparks
But if you really paid attention guys, you would realise that Nicholas Sparks isn't always about candlelit dinners and rose petals, as I was reminded after watching The Notebook on Saturday night, curled up by the fire.
I had forgotten just how quirky and loveable Allie and Noah were, and fell in love with the story all over again. So I thought I would just remind you, especially those who have lost faith in love, that anything associated with the name Nicholas Sparks will renew your faith.
Although most of his stories have tragic, tear-jerking endings, his ability to tell a love story as it is from beginning to end is among some of the best.
Both the books and the movies have you laughing and crying, sometimes at the same time, and in the end, you wouldn't change a thing.
Love hurts. But would you rather feel the pain of love or spend your life feeling nothing at all?
I personally recommend The Notebook and Dear John as both books and movies. I've also read The Guardian, Nights in Rodanthe, and Message in a Bottle, and I plan to read A Walk to Remember next.
