Suzanne's Diary for Nicholas
Suzanne's Diary for Nicholas | James Patterson
James Patterson has written a love story! -a powerfully moving and suspenseful novel about families, loss, new love, and hope. Katie Wilkinson has found her perfect man at last. He's a writer, a house painter, an original thinker-everything she's imagined she wanted in a partner. But one day, without explanation, he disappears from her life, leaving behind only a diary for her to read. This diary is a love letter written by a new mother named Suzanne for her baby son, Nicholas. In it she pours out her heart about how she and the boy's father met, about her hopes for marriage and family, and about the unparalleled joy that having a baby has brought into her life. As Katie reads this touching document, it becomes clear that the lover who has just left her is the husband and father in this young family. She reads on, filled with terror and hope, as she struggles to understand what has happened-and whether her new love has a prayer of surviving. Written with James Patterson's perfect pitch for emotion and suspense, Suzanne's Diary for Nicholas captures beautifully the joys of a new family even as it builds to an overwhelmingly moving climax. This is an unforgettable love story, at once heartbreaking and full of hope.

⭐️⭐️⭐️ 3 Stars

A beautiful yet heartbreaking story with mediocre writing (sorry, I must be in minority here...I know a lot of people rave about this one). This could have been so much more, but it was great for a quick read.

Jennifer3 I think I enjoyed it because it was a quick read but there was definitely more that could have been done with it. I felt like it was because this was one of the first times he wrote a story like this? There is also 1mo
baes @Jennifer3 I‘ve read that one too. I just don‘t think I‘m fond of his writing style (at least for this genre), but the other one did seem a bit more thought out if I‘m remembering it correctly. This one seemed so rushed. 1mo
Jennifer3 @baes I agree the other one was better. I haven‘t read any of his books in ages. 1mo

This book was given to me in a donation for my little free libraries and the person who donated it told me I should read it. well, you know how it goes with all of those books people give you and say you should read, on the stack lol 😂 This was #5 for my #14Books14Weeks. A quick read, def different than your average James Patterson book, much more in the vein of Nicholas Sparks. Reading the diary portion was very emotional!

Someone left a note (with their email) in the last page of the book before putting it in the donation pile. The email address is relating to reading, so maybe he just wants to talk about great books with strangers... maybe I just email him back, and tell him about Litsy. 😆 #Booksurprises #leaveanote

I took this photo earlier, when I first started reading Suzanne‘s Diary for Nicholas. Two hours later, I am a complete wreck. (Thanks for the heads up @TheBookHippie 😭😭😭😭 ) I didn‘t expect it to be as heart wrenching as it was. I‘m pretty sure I cried straight through the last 60 pages. I definitely recommend, but with a BIG heads up that it‘s a freaking emotional rollercoaster.

RadicalReader James Patterson is such a wonderful author the move is also equally good hope you check it out sometime soon from the library 7mo
Clwojick @RadicalReader I‘ll be able to get it on my Kodi box when I‘m ready, but that might be a while. It was so heartbreaking, that I might need to wait before watching the movie. 🥺 But I will definitely be checking it out eventually. Along with Sunday‘s at Tiffany‘s. Read that book years ago, and just recently found out they made a movie. 7mo
marleed I was literally snowed in most of January and 4 days without power. This book was one of my afternoon reads (when I still had light). At least when the sun went down I had this story to cry about instead of the weather! 7mo

Going w/ Audible today so I can work on this light fixture. I loved this vintage beauty but didn‘t love the chain swag it hung from. I updated it by removing the chain and plug and hardwired it to hang directly at the ceiling. It turns out my project is much more interesting to me than this book. I don‘t like the characters, am annoyed by the narrator, and if this story doesn‘t go anywhere I will not be shocked.

Warning: book violence has occurred.

This is where this little book landed when I chucked it across my bedroom. I feel like I have been emotionally abused by Mr. Patterson, and it was willful and deliberate. I'm not sure I like being manipulated like this!

That said, this was a quick book (Bookout says I read it in just over 2 hours), and I'm not sorry I spent the evening reading it. It's sweet (almost sickeningly so) and simple.

⭐️⭐️⭐️

Laalaleighh I've never read him bc im not sure which of his books he wrote. Is he good? 2y
sprainedbrain @Laalaleighh I don't really know... this was my first and I really don't plan to read any more. It seemed very formulaic to me. 2y
IolaGoulton I read that he doesn't actually write his own books any more. This could be why it felt formulaic. 2y

Overall a pretty great book. It has it's sad, happy, and frustrating parts, but it all adds together and makes the book worth the read. I usually read his thriller genre like books, but was pleasantly surprised by this one.
