This is a place for you to discuss how the theme of love appears in the books you are reading. How do your characters experience it? What type of love (romance, familial, friendship, etc)? What are your personal thoughts? Don't forget to tell us what book you are reading.

The theme of love appears in the book I am reading because Noah and Allie had a love when they were younger and so many obstacles were in their way but love found a way. The type of love is romance love of course. My personal thoughts on the book so far is it really is a good book if you like romance and cliff hangers. And love always wins in the end.

Abby Rogers | 1 comments In the book that I'm currently reading, "A Walk To Remember" the characters Landon and Jamie start as acquaintances and slowly fall in in love. Jamie is a very religious person unlike Landon, but Landon asks Jamie to a school dance and they start to see each other more often. Everyone saw Jamie as the "weird" kid and didn't like to talk to her.

The theme of love is a constant theme by this author which is why I've read so many of her works. In this installment of her series Cam, one of the seven fallen angels she writes about, has descended into Hell to save his one true love from her own personal version of it. He only has 14 days to win her over while her soul is still angry with him for hurting her hundreds of years before. If he doesn't convince her to fall for him again then he belongs to Lucifer forever as his right hand.

Grace Burton | 4 comments In the book I am reading, Where She Went, the theme of love is shown through the young boy that is still in love with his teenage girlfriend. The love that he has for her is so strong that the few years of being separated has only made him want her more. Tragic and major life events made it almost impossible to stay together causing her to break up with him and move away. Ever since the day she left, he has dealt with depression and a never ending feeling of loneliness . I have just gotten to the part where they have reunited and I am so excited to see how they react!

Jordann Hart | 1 comments The book I am reading is "The Longest Ride". It is about a bull rider who falls in love with a college girl. In the beginning it talks about an older couple who fell in love with someone and how they're love story started. The older guy wrote a passage in a diary everyday about how his day was with the lady. Soon after she dies, the old man goes and reads back through the diaries. I recommend this book if you like romance.

Taylor Hartis | 3 comments In the "Last Song" by Nicholas Sparks, Ronnie is slowly falling for Will. In the beginning, Ronnie was cold and introverted when she arrived to stay with her father. She was rude to Will and pushed him away, but now she really likes him and can even see a future together. Their romance is growing too. The Last Song by Nicholas Sparks

Lindsey Carroll | 4 comments In "Let It Snow", so far two of the three stories that intertwine have had romance themes as well as a coming of age theme. In the first story, although Jubilee has a boyfriend, she can't help but have a strange attraction to Stuart, who she ends up falling for and spending Christmas with in the small mountain community known as Gracetown, NC. In the other story, so far, Tobin, JD and the Duke have all decided to go down to the Waffle House on Christmas Eve to meet up with their friend Keun who works there and is surrounded by cheerleaders. The Duke, whose real name is Angie, has been treated like "one of the guys" all of her life and she is fed up with it. Tobin slowly begins to realize that he is attracted to the Duke and she feels the same about him.

Savannah Adams | 4 comments I'm reading Gossip Girl. My book has a lot of themes but a very common one is love. Dan is absolute love with Serena and Serena is almost creeped out by him. He writes poetry about her and sends them to her and the thinks this is weird. Dan thinks that Serena fell from heaven and is a gift to the world. Serena just looks at him as if he is a normal nice guy. Dan is in love with her and she is not in love with him at all this has been going on for a while and isn't a new thing so Serena will probably never love him like he loves her.
