A Bend in the Road Nicholas Sparks books are like comfort food, you need them once in a while to feel good.”A Bend in the Road” is a romance and mystery smash up, unlike other books from this author.

Miles Ryan’s, deputy sheriff of New Bern is living with only one goal- that is to catch the person who killed his wife in hit and run accident. He doesn’t believe that it is an accident, he thinks it as crime. He lives with his son Jonah and all the time worries about him and wants to bring the man to justice who took away Jonah’s mother and his wife. Then Miles meets Sarah, Jonah’s second grade teacher who moved recently to New  Bern, hoping to start over a nasty divorce. Soon Miles and Sarah are falling in love but they are unaware of a secret which is bound to them. Once the secret is out it will make them question everything, including their love.

It is a good novel, with lot of emotions, romance and a little mystery. Surprisingly I didn’t cry this time reading this book as I do always while reading books from this author. My rating: 3 out of 5. A good read, recommended for people who are looking for a light read filled with emotions.


The RescueNicholas Spark’s novel never failed to make me cry, and this book is not different. I have read 10 books from this Author, including ” The Rescue”.  There is something in his novels which makes you get attached to the characters and see them as humans rather than just characters. When he writes a story every character comes into life. The Rescue is about a mother with her abnormal child, who has got learning disabilities and a gentleman who is commitment phobic, and with a terrible past memory making him suffer every moment.

Denise and her son Kyle meets with am accident in a bad weather right after moving to a new town. They are rescued by a volunteer fireman, Taylor and from there their friendship blooms. Kyle is attached to Taylor as he never was attached to anyone. Denise who is single mother and gone through lot of difficulties is scared to take the friendship to next level. But Taylor with his charm and gentleness gets hold on her heart. Everything is perfect until Taylor’s previous self is returned and the chilling truth is that he shows no interest anymore. Will Denise be able to go through this heart break? Will Kyle understand what it means that Taylor can’t be there for him anymore? Whats is this thing keeping Taylor away from everything?

Its a good book, I recommend for those who enjoy Nicholas Spark’s novels. I read it somewhere that this is his debut. My ratings: 3 out of 5.

P.S: I was crying when I reached very close to the end of this book, reading Denise speak out her feelings. I was travelling in bus with lots of tissues in hand, but fortunately as it was afternoon time there were very less people to notice me!

A Walk to Remember”Love is always patient and kind. It is never jealous. Love is never boastful or conceited. It is never rude or selfish. It does not take offense and is not resentful. Love takes no pleasure in other people’s sins, but delights in the truth. It is always ready to excuse, to trust, to hope, and to endure whatever comes”

”A walk to remember” is one movie where I cry every time no matter how many times I watch it. I absolutely love it. But I never thought of reading it. I like Nicholas Sparks novels, I have read many- ”The Last Song”, ”Dear John”, ”Message In the Bottle”, ”The Note Book” and never failed to cry 🙂

This is a beautiful, romantic, heartwarming story that will surely leave you crying at the end. It is narrated by Landon about his early life in 1950 during his 17 years he ”grows up” to what he is now. The minister’s daughter, Jamie Sullivan helps him to grow up from what he was before, self absorbed and self fish person to real man. Jamie is a kind of girl, whom every elders liked  and children of her age made fun of but secretively felt guilty about themselves in her presence because she had that power of innocence and helping nature. Even Landon made fun of her for carrying bible and wearing the same brown sweat shirt through out the year. But one day due to some situation he asks her out and from there everything changes. She says not to fall in love, but he does exactly opposite to that. From there their short romantic journey starts off.

I totally love both, the movie and the book.Only hope is a wonderful song in the movie. I recommended many people to watch the movie. I recommended my husband to watch this when we were engaged he watched and absolutely felt the same way as I felt then when we watched the movie together after we  got married and started staying together, I almost scared him by crying like a mad person 🙂 This is the second book I love after ”Love Story” which is some what similar at the end. I give it 5 out of 5.
