Nicholas Sparks is like comfort food, I always know going in the kind of emotional love story I’m going to get and I can count on being sucked into the lives, loves and heartache of his small town characters. They’re written realistic ...more
My friend, Megan and I decided to do a Nicholas Sparks reading marathon this month and as I was checking my Goodreads to see which of his books I’d yet to read, A Bend in the Road showed up. I decided to start there only to quickly discover I had read the book before, long before I started tracking my reading with Goodreads.
Nicholas Sparks was the author to introduce me to the romance genre. I used to read his new books religiously when they came out because h ...more

but again, it is nicholas spark. i enjoy it and it took me by surprise that i enjoy it. miles is a confusing character. sarah is facinating and jonah deserves a spin off.
I read last Sparks book in January, I have watched all the movies and now I am reading books, Yeah cycle is inverted here, There isn’t movie adaption of A bend in the road so I was clueless. It took me 80 pages to feel the Nicholas vibes, It was so different from the other books, MCs were widower and divorcee so this story mostly tackles adults problem which I wasn’t expecting 😐

Nicholas Sparks is my all time favorite go to author when i'm in the mood for a romantic novel. I know it will be a cute fluffy love story with a happy end.
And I wasn't disappointed this time. It had it all.
Miles lost his wife - the love of his life - in a car accident. He thought he could never fall for an other again after Missy. Untill he meeds his sons new teacher, the cute, kind, pretty Sarah. They get into a relationship with bumbs in the road. Will their love survive all ...more
Right, so I was recommended this book by my co-worker who I made read the Hunger Games, and ...more
Not a feel good fluffy kind of romance which Kasie West writes. This time for some serious shit.
Notable name sparked was Mr.Sparks...
Heard a lot about his novels and movies and uncertain about when and through which of his work I would get into his whirlwind. And it happened in the middle of Bent Road..
Yes, this is a love story with a tinge of mystery mixed in (if that is considered a mystery).
Though characters were bleak and non-attachable, story was not s ...more
While Miles immersed himself with his search, seven-year-old Jonah suffered. He missed not only his mother, but al ...more
Miles Ryan has been struggling over the past two years to find his footing in life after his wife Missy was killed in a hit and run. Just how disconnected he has been is brought home when he finds out how badly his son Jonah is doing in school.
This was pretty good, sure.
So there's a bunch of rivalry going on in this tiny city. Sarah-I think that's her name-had just come for a couple months, as a school teacher and meets this kid Jonas. He's kinda falling behind-no not dumb-but was not pushed to doing work and stuff.
And it was because his mom had died, so from pity, teachers passed him despite his lack of education.
So yes. A parent-teacher conference is needed.
And yes. Once a ...more
The emotional bondage between the lead characters during their different times was narrated so touchingly!! And yeah there is always the sparks kind of romance which is always a worth read!! The death of his wife and the repercussions were narrated in a wonderful way!! The pinch of sentime ...more
I believe it could have been much better in a number of ways though.
I won't recommend it but if ...more
