The Best of Me by Nicholas Sparks
If you liked The Notebook, then I would definitely recommend picking up The Best of Me. Another Nicholas Sparks book, The Best of Me will take you on the complicated journeys of Amanda and Dawson, seperate and together. At the beginning, it appears to follow the typical Romeo and Juliet plotline, but as you delve into the book, it becomes so much more. As Amanda and Dawson begin to open up to each other after ten years of being apart, they begin to be honest with themselves, too. You’ll flip through the pages faster and faster to see how Amanda’s well-to-do Southern mother reacts to her rekindled friendship with low-class Dawson, and to see what Dawson’s revenge-driven uncle will do to him. I wish I had read this book by a beach because it would be a perfect novel to read leisurely in the sunshine while daydreaming about your soulmate. Oh, Nicholas Sparks.
