A Walk to Remember

      I stopped reading Delirium and switched to A Walk to Remember By: Nicholas Sparks. The reason I “dropped” the book Delirium was because it was going very slowly. I might pick it up again when I have time. It was a good book but dragged on for a long time.

      But A Walk to Remember is about this boy, Landon Carter who was a senior class of 1958. He didn't care about his future. He dated a few girls and told that he was in love. But he didn't expect it to be Jamie Sullivan, the daughter of the church’s minister.

"Love is like the wind, you can't see it but you can feel it." 
Nicholas Sparks (A Walk to Remember)

     Never expecting it to be the girl who was shy, quiet, kind and a girl who didn't care about clothes and makeup, because she wasn't his "type". But, he finds his way to fall in love with her anyway. Funny huh? Love comes to you in weird ways.

     I just started reading the book and I know I will love it. I love how Nicholas Sparks writes. He writes with emotions he’s experienced before; like pain, empathy, and affection. Writing your experiences is the best writing a reader can read, because we can connect to it and understand what the author/ characters go through.

"Without suffering, there'd be no compassion." 
Nicholas Sparks (A Walk to Remember)

As I continue to read A Walk to Remember, I can’t wait to see what Nicholas Sparks has for me to read this time!
