Aahana I really want to read A Deadly Education!

Ruxandra You should read this book if you like: superior romance novels
That sounds... not good to me, especially since we're talking about Nicholas Sparks here, who's had some controversies.


message 3: by Jay (new)

Jay The Loop! Sounds amazing!


message 4: by Samantha (new)

Samantha Not listed above, but I am looking forward to reading Dear Justyce


message 5: by Claudia (new)

Claudia L Sterling Jasper Fforde! Quirky sense of humor and fantastic imagination. I gobble his books up.

I don't like this genre, nor do I like Nicholas Sparks' books, so this does not appeal to me in the least. But I'm curious -- what controversies?


message 7: by Jennie (new)

Jennie It's not on this list, but I'm super excited for Matt Haig's The Midnight Library


message 8: by Nathan (new)

Nathan The Midnight Library, Deadly Education, The Loop, & Skyhunter. Big week for book pre-orders!

Azizi Mansor Family dynamics

kittykat AKA Ms. Tortitude That Sparks person does not write 'superior' romance novels, far from it. He writes mostly tragedy laden [insert word of choice here]...

tung le I really want to read The Return
by Nicholas Sparks


message 12: by JessDevon (new)

JessDevon Good list! I've read The Return by Nicolas Sparks, and I can say that it's good enough. I like to ask my students to write essays on the books they've read. But today, there are many writing services, so I use https://edubirdie.com/plagiarism-checker to be sure that they use only their brains. I can say that a plagiarism checker is a popular tool among teachers of literature today.


message 13: by Michael (new)

Michael Smith I've just finished both the Novik and the Hornby (both "automatic" authors for me), but I'm surprised you didn't include the new Cormoran Strike novel, Troubled Blood. Just finished it, too, and it's the best in the series yet.
