Here I go with round two of my book reviews for 2013. After finishing The Murderer's Daughters I knew Safe Haven by Nicholas Sparks would be my next book; I definitely want to see the movie, and I like to read books before I watch their film adaptation.
The basic outline:
I went with four stars for this book; there was nothing earth-shattering or even distinctly original in the storyline, but it kept me engaged from the first page. I am a fan of Nicholas Sparks and I'm not ashamed to admit it- the cheesy love stories get me every time :) I won't reveal too much, but I did shed quite a few tears at one point, and I think that shows that I really was invested in both the storyline and the characters!
As usual with Nicholas Sparks, many of the characters seemed almost too perfect, but honestly I'm okay with that. I read love stories for entertainment, not for a completely realistic portrayal of the human condition. Sometimes it's nice to just read about people from the best possible angle- and Nicholas Sparks definitely has this down to an art form.
Now I cannot wait to see the movie!!!
Julianne Hough & John Duhamel in a Nicholas Sparks movie?
Count me in!
Have you read the book or seen the movie? How did you like it? If you haven't, do you want to?
