There are stories that rise from mysterious, unknown places, and others that are discovered, a gift from someone else.
Found near a sandy dune, on an actual stretch of North Carolina beach, sits a community mailbox—owned by no one and everyone. A character in its own right, Kindred Spirit rests atop a driftwood post, waiting to share the hopes and dreams entrusted by past visitors, along with this resounding message: love endures.
Letters and photocopied drawings available for perusal during th ...more
I just finished Every Breath this morning and it turned out to be pretty good. Once I got about half way through I was leary with the direction the book was taking, but by the end it came together nicely.
Hope is in a relationship that she isn't exactly content with. Her boyfriend Josh doesn't seem to be committing and after six years she wonders what their future holds. Her dad has been diagnosed with a debilitating health condition and she doesn't know how much time they have le ...more
This book has all the makings of a love story to remember from the characters’ strength, resilience, and ...more

➽ KITTY KATS CRAZY ABOUT BOOKS
In the romantic tradition of The Notebook and Nights in Rodanthe Nicholas Sparks brings us EVERY BREATH which Is a full length, stand alone romance novel.
Like previous novels by this author he has such an uncanny knack of weaving a magic spell over his readers Every Breath is no different, unique in every way, it drew me in as soon as I started reading it.
In this we’re introduced to forty two year old Tru, an uncon ...more
The king of contemporary romance fiction returns with a brand new love story titled, Every Breath. This is a love at first sight classic romance, that sees destiny play a huge role in shaping the lives of two individuals, Tru and Hope. Sparks describes his latest novel as ‘a classic story of lovers long denied’. I think this quote perfectly summarises what you can expect when you pick up Every Breath.
The latest novel from Nicholas Sparks begins with ...more
Eeep - finally another Nicholas Sparks book!
I just love his stories. A WALK TO REMEMBER was the book that started my reading addiction back in 2002 or somewhere around that time.
Every Breath is really heartbreaking and sad and moving and hopeless but also full of hope and love and family and loss and ... so much. Full of all those beautiful and heartbreaking things a Nicholas Sparks book needs.☺
We start with 42 year old Zimbabwe tour guide Tru. He's the grandson of one of the countries' richest ...more
“The destiny that matters most in anyone’s life is the one concerning love.”
Every Breath is a tear jerker. You have been warned!
For the longest time, I resisted reading Nicholas Sparks novels. I had seen the movies like A Walk to Remember, Message in a Bottle, Dear John and The Notebook. So I knew his main characters either didn't stay together or one of them died. As a true romantic, this really hurt my heart. Then, I read The Longest Ride, See Me, and Two by Two and I became a fan of his s ...more
“It’s because of you, after all, that I now believe in miracles. With us, I want to believe that anything will always be possible.”
I remember the first Nicholas Sparks novel I ever read. I was in 6th grade (2003) and I picked up A Walk to Remember at Walmart. It was the movie tie in cover, with Mandy Moore and Shane West holding hands— which I still have to this day. I read the whole book that night and begged my mom to buy me the movie, and thankfully, she did. I think I watched that movie ...more
What I liked most about this novel is that it’s a true story and it’s just such a cute little romance novel with an equal amount of sad moments involved. It’s so pure and Sparks writes so beautifully it’ ...more
I disliked the 20year fast forward as well.
I’m both disappointed and pleased. I liked it in spots and I disliked it 🤷🏽♀ ...more
Non so, leggo Sparks da anni ma a questo libro manca decisamente qualcosa!
Bello l'espediente di Kindred Spirit: una cassetta delle lettere solitaria, poggiata sulla spiaggia per raccoglie i desideri e rimorsi di chiunque abbia voglia di lasciare un pezzo della sua storia all'oceano e a chi passerà di lì... Interessante lo scorcio d'Africa che viene proposto, sebbene in maniera frettolosa. Però la trama di per sé non ha nulla di speciale, una bella storia ma non memorabile.
Hope and Tru are star crossed lovers, but mature ones. Though there is tragedy and angst, they make mature decisions. (Though I do wonder how many men like Tru are actually out there.)
I cried at two different places.
The destiny that matters most in anyone’s life Is the one concerning love... 💗
Son of a Safari.... Nicholas Sparks... you slay me Every.Single.Time. From the first line, I could not put this book down, I devoured it. I was once again transported into this beautiful place you created with your magical words and imagined being inside this story right along with the characters. This was such a timeless romantic story that leaves you remembering his earlier works, such as A Walk to Remem ...more
Tru is leaving everything he knows to visit a man he never met, his biological father, a man that is dying.
Hope is saying goodbye to place she grew up in and putting this beautiful place in her rear view mirror looked good until a man came up with her dog.
Hope and Tru fall madly in love only to be separated for years. They have a life apart but there is always that yearning for the other.
What can I say besides Nicholas Sparks always delivers a beautiful story.
I can already pictur ...more
When I first found out he was writing another book I looked into what the book was about and then completely forgot about it because I have the worst memory so I pretty much went into this blind. Like I've already mentioned Nicholas is my all time favorite author so every time I read one of his books I go into it with high expectations and I have to say that to this day he has never let me d ...more
