I’ll admit it
I will admit it…I like Nicholas Sparks. I know a lot of people don’t. I do. I remember watching the beginning of his career in a CBS special about how he got his first novel published. It was sentimental and sweet. It was very much like his novels. I know a lot of his novels are similar. So are Danielle Steele’s, John Grisham’s and Nora Robert’s. I am not a huge fan of Danielle Steele, but the other people I do like. I also love that Nicholas Sparks now lives in my state. I am currently reading Safe Haven. I am not far into it, but it takes place in an area where I want to live. I would move there in a heartbeat! It’s close to Wilmington, NC. He gives the area a Mayberry-esque personality but with beaches.
I told y’all I got my e-reader the other day. It is allowing me to get back to one of my basic loves again. Reading. I want to write more in the style of Nicholas Sparks. He knows how to grab the heart. I want to do that. I also want to use my wittiness (read that as me being a smartass). I think a combination of Nicholas Sparks, Helen Fielding and Jennifer Weiner might provide for some good reading. They are on my reading list. I haven’t read them in a while. So now y’all know who I read. Who do YOU read?
