Safe Haven
Safe Haven | Nicholas Sparks
When a mysterious young woman named Katie appears in the small North Carolina town of Southport, her sudden arrival raises questions about her past. Beautiful yet self-effacing, Katie seems determined to avoid forming personal ties until a series of events draws her into two reluctant relationships: one with Alex, a widowed store owner with a kind heart and two young children; and another with her plainspoken single neighbor, Jo. Despite her reservations, Katie slowly begins to let down her guard, putting down roots in the close-knit community and becoming increasingly attached to Alex and his family.But even as Katie begins to fall in love, she struggles with the dark secret that still haunts and terrifies her . . . a past that set her on a fearful, shattering journey across the country, to the sheltered oasis of Southport. With Jo's empathic and stubborn support, Katie eventually realizes that she must choose between a life of transient safety and one of riskier rewards . . . and that in the darkest hour, love is the only true safe haven.

Sparks is one of my Safe Havens (get it? ba dum tiss) and his books never fail to interest me and make me satisfied at the ending. Another solid one.

This book was so good! Nicholas Sparks will never let me down! Great love story but with an amazing end! Amazing book, but of course now I'll have to see the movie (;

I haven't come across a Nicholas Sparks book I didn't like, and this one wasn't an exception! I want expecting the plot twist at the end, but I love the way this book ended, which is a big deal for my overall view of a book.

Somewhere between a pick and a so-so for me. I liked the general story but the characters seemed a little stale and one dimensional. I would love to see this type of story written by a really dynamic female author.

I‘ve been collecting some Nicholas Sparks books from Goodwill but I haven‘t read any of his work yet. Opinions? I love the movies that have been adapted from his books.

I've only been to a #BedandBreakfast twice, but they both had amazing front porches where I could read! This one, that I visited last year, is in Southport, NC, where the tagged book is set. The movie was filmed there. (I've never read the book, but I watched the movie, and at the end I said, WHAT?. No spoilers for others. But really.) #AugustIsATrip @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @vkois88

The same old Sparks' plot with different characters in different circumstances and situations. A woman or man with a past and they fall in love but the other one is hesitant because of the his/her past but what the heck they still fall in love. A man is always present to ruin their relationship but at the end there will always be a confrontation wither verbally or physically and their love becomes stronger.

Please excuse me while I ugly cry... this is why I don't read romance... I stick to suspense and mystery because they don't rip my heart out.. Jo's letter at the end has me in my feelings!!
Ugh, but I freaking loved it.. thanks Nicholas Sparks, my pillow case is now wet.

Side note: the husband says i'm no longer allowed to read romance. Lol 😂😭😂😭

I love this tote bag I got from Books a Million. I also got this book, Safe Haven, from Goodwill this past weekend for $3.68. Pretty sweet deal! I have no plans today which means I can read a good part of the day. Yay! I hope everyone is enjoying their day 😊

Day 7: Lighthouses

Surprisingly I don't have/can't remember a book with a lighthouse on the cover, so here's one of my favorite beachy reads with one of my many lighthouses in my house. It's the only Nicholas Sparks novel I read but I loved it! Katie Feldman is such a wonderful character!

This is one of my favorites by Nicholas Sparks. The story is quite intense but also beautiful, Alex is dreamy. Like all books by Sparks I was left with a great feeling once I finished it.

Sometimes you need an easy read where you can anticipate the next move. A book that'll help you get over a book slump. For me, I turn to a Sparks novel. There's a little romance, a little tension, but in the end you can most likely expect happily ever after.

KrisConstantReader @KariAnderson I kind of feel the same way. Even after nearly 4 years, sometimes I still expect him to just walk through the door. He still feels very near; memories of him are still quite vivid, which I am grateful for. 3y
