Earlier this year I promised to write a review of every book I read in 2010 and I'm holding myself accountable for that promise! Since The Da Vinci Code I have only read two books. Can you believe it? I think I'm still trying to find my comfort zone being in this relationship and combining new habits with old ones. ;)
I read Dear, John and The Last Song by Nicholas Sparks. I used to read his books almost as soon as they came out, but a few years ago I think I got bored with them but after reading these two I think I'm back on the Nicholas Sparks bandwagon! So without further ado, here goes!
I bought Dear, John at that really cute bookstore in Cy's hometown so it will always remind me of that day!
This book, like all of Nicholas Sparks' books was a fast and easy read. It was definitely a tear jerker and made me really think about the different kinds of love we have for people. It also made me think about a comment that Amber wrote recently about fate and soul mates. I do believe there is one person that is made for you. Your true complement that God has planned for you, that person that immediately feels like family. But, I also believe that there are several people that you could spend the rest of your life with that, although are not your soul mate, you could live your life happy with.
On Friday I saw the movie, and I have to say I was very unhappy. If I hadn't read the book I probably would have liked the movie but some of the changes made were unnecessary and made the entire story awkward.
Have you read Dear, John or seen the movie? What did you think?
At first I was a little resistant of this one because I knew the role of Ronnie was practically written for Miley Cyrus. Not that I don't like Miley Cyrus, I'm just a little Miley'd out from the past few years.
This book was predictable Nicholas Sparks, but was still a page turner for me. I don't even know what to write without giving away the entire book, so I don't think I am going to write much. I'm really, really looking forward to this movie now and can't wait to go see it. I get the feeling (and really hope) that this one is going to be a hit like The Notebook and A Walk To Remember.
There are several more Nicholas Sparks books that I haven't read yet like The Choice and The Lucky One and I'm really looking forward to picking them up! His books always leave me feeling inspired and I love it!
Are you a fan of Nicholas Sparks?
