I got of course “The Lucky One”

I bought Nicholas Sparks’

The Lucky One


So I think I’m starting a trend for myself here. Not at all on purpose but continues to be a coincidence so might as well make it a little tradition.

Years before “The Notebook” my friend Vanessa got the book cause of the cover; it intrigued her. I later read it and fell in LOVE with the story. I read it in 2 days which for me is NOT usual cause I’ve never been much of a reader.

Other than the Bible, Nicholas Sparks is the only author who can capture my attention to read a book entirely in a matter of days.

Then about 5 years later, they made the movie. I’m a theater/film girl so I love VISUAL!

I was beyond excited that this story I read so long ago and loved was adapted to film. Then I read “A Walk to Remember”, then “Dear John”, “The Last Song” and I read “The Choice” (which has not been adapted into a film).

Wow…I’ve actually read a few of his books. Anyway, now I saw in the rumor mill of “la internet” that they are making a film for his novel “The Lucky One”.

I had caught my attention a couple of years ago but never got it. I decided with the movie coming out next year, why not. So I got the book and will let you all know what I think.

Granted, you would think I’ve learned my lesson after “Dear John”. (Past post: I read it before and saw the movie after and it was a train wreck!)

Just thought I’d update you all that have followed my series of Nicholas Sparks books-to-film.

Happy 2011!

I am a dreamer, a seeker of hope, I find magic, beauty & fear in the night sky and long to dance in the sunlight. Life has not been easy but most would never know cause I hide my heart & tears well. So here I am, wishing to release, discover, mend & find but only writing helps release the voice within that fools herself into believing, "she'll get through these things alone..." Here's pieces of me for my own release...
