Nicholas Sparks Novels

Message in the Bottle was the first book I've watched and then read 8 years later. As year passess by, I was able to get hold of books written by Sparks. I found out through words how he can inflict emotional wounds and spark raw emotions. He is a master in storytelling that will make you question true love, God's plan and how life is woven intricately. He often draw lines that are worth remembering is applicable to life itself.

Thanks for sharing to us your encounter with message in a bottle. I researched about it and this is what I have learned. Message in a Bottle is the second romance novel written by American author Nicholas Sparks. The story, which explores the romance theme of love after grief, is set in the mid-late 1990s, then-contemporary Wilmington, North Carolina. The 1999 film Message in a Bottle produced by and starring Kevin Costner, is based on this novel.

I've only watched a few Nicholas Sparks movies (by few I mean all the books that has a movie adaptation.) I've yet to read them. I do have a lot of Nicholas Sparks ebooks saved on my tab. I'm still reading (or rather, trying to finish reading) Me Before You. Hopefully I can kick off this laziness and start reading soon.

This thread is interesting as the first book that I had read was a Nicholas Sparks' book too. It was 'A Walk to Remember'. I remembered crying and wanting to search for the email address of the author to ask why was the ending like that. Even though I know that all of the circumstances lead to that specific ending, I still couldn't accept it.

The last one I read was "The Last Song" but definitely my favorite one is "The Notebook". It is such a consuming story that made me believe in love all over again. Noah and Allie's deep and timeless love turns tragedy into triumph, it is a love so powerful that it makes miracles. I am sure you would also enoy the movie based on this book starring Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams.

Nicholas Sparks novel are very popular because his books tend to be love stories that are very melodramatic with similar plots and formulas. Young adult girls like them a lot because of the romance in the story. Some of his books also translate into decent movies.

for me, The notebook. I have read that book and of course watched the movie also. Nicholas sparks is a brilliant author. I cant wait to read his other books

Harry Potter series

I was so young back then when Harry Potter and the Sorcerer Stone was first published. My first encounter with the series is through a television screen and it had me hooked all the way until then. Now, I'm not getting any younger and all the series has been out in the market. Both in digital and in print. Unlike anyone who has far outgrown their crazy penchant for this series, I still harbor happiness whenever I encounter Harry Potter books and stuff. J.K Rowling has written a masterful piece whose audience doesn't only cater to children but adult at hear. I still flipped through pages and feel as if I'm inside Hogwarts whenever I read the series.

I can really sense you're really a great fan of Harry Potter. You make me curious and want to know more about Harry Potter. I have not yet watched all Harry Potter's movie. I have heard of it before and even is so popular even in our country yet I have not encountered his book and movie yet.

I have seen all the films, but never picked up a single book of the series. As a child, I was hooked on The Lord of the Rings, so Harry Potter felt way more childish.

This is what I learned from Harry Potter as I research. Harry Potter is a series of fantasy novels written by British author J. K. Rowling. The novels chronicle the lives of a young wizard, Harry Potter, and his friends Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley, all of whom are students at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. The main story arc concerns Harry's struggle against Lord Voldemort, a dark wizard who intends to become immortal, overthrow the wizard governing body known as the Ministry of Magic, and subjugate all wizards and Muggles (non-magical people).

I first found out about Harry Potter from my best friend in High School. It was already out for a few months when she first bought it. I was the first she lent her book to, and since then we waited for new books to come out. I still read Harry Potter to this day, and even watch the movies. I got to pass down my love for these books to my daughter who is now 13 years old. She loves them just as much and it's something we bond over. Harry Potter is indeed a magical series.

I was a little too old for Harry Potter when it first came out, and didn't take an interest until I was nearly 30, right around the time Deathly Hallows was published. I ended up devouring the entire series in about a month, and I've re-read it countless times since. It never gets old. JK Rowling is a superlative story teller. I think there are a lot of us who will never outgrow the series

I've never read the books, but I'm watching the whole movie series right now (my first time ever). I'm having a marathon to be honest, watching with the entire family for the first time. What I like about Harry Potter is that it's beautiful, in terms of the fact that for example it shows the way real friendship should be.

For me it is Prisoner of Azkaban but as I’ve grown, it’s become Half-Blood Prince. Those two are definitely my favorites. The first book gets a lot of shit and it’s probably the worst piece of literature but it does so much to set up the world and story. Basically I love them all.

I am currently reading Book 3: The Prisoner of Azkaban. I have always wanted to read the books but they cost a fortune and I do not have friends I can borrow from. So far, it was as fun as i expected. I love their adventures, the thrills, and the friendship. Those three things always engage me to read more and love the book. I feel like I could read and reread it at least 10 times and never get tired of it.

Harry Potter will prove to be one of the most influential book series written for young people of all time, if not the most influential. The classic tale of good against evil, light against dark, is told in such a wonderful sensory way with such unique and unusual characters never seen before that it is enjoyable from start to finish. This opinion on the series is certainly colored by how I felt about the books when I was young. Perhaps I would look at it in a different light now that I am older. In the mean time there are other books I'd like to read but Harry Potter will always be one of my favorites.

When the movies were in full bloom I was a child, but unfortunately hadn't the chance to watch them when they were released. I actually started reading the books just after the series ended. I started to watch the movies as I finished each book, although I didn't watch the whole series, just read the books. I've been itching to revisit the books.

Good luck with your books, I hope to see them one day. The book you mentioned sounds like a very useful read for anyone who writes their own books and wants to publish them someday. I'll definitely keep an eye out for this as well.

I'll take a look at it sometime. So far, I've only published e-books and sold them myself through forums, but it's always interesting to find out more about how to get your book accepted for publication by an editor.
Caguioa747 - 1 point - 3 months ago
thanks for the suggestion mate. like you i have been considering on publishing a book for so long now. will gonna totally check that out.
dullian - 1 point - 3 months ago
Does it cover how to present your text? I mean, how to format your book on the computer or printing guidelines. I guess that's a work for graphic designers, but I'm not too sure if that's something you really should be worried about in early stages.
DamianTyrell - 1 point - 3 months ago
Best of luck in your endeavor. If I ever write a book and need to publish it and I am not sure how I will purchase this book about publishing books. I'll read this book and take what I know to publish my own book. Excited to report back!

Good luck! Please, do keep us posted about your book. If you publish it, I'd love to read it!

It's quite hard to get your book published indeed, but sadly, not worth the effort anymore if you ask me... Many people prefer to get digital books, such as audiobooks, instead of holding a real one in your hands.

You have to believe in yourself, you know! Also, listen to what some other, smarter people have to say! Listen to their advice! Be ready to modify some parts of your work if you want it to be published! Smile and believe!

The Sigma Protocol

This book has been on my shelf for several months until I come upon an urge to flipped upon it's pages. Robert Ludlum creative genius lingers in the written lines of his last work. I find the first chapter to be boring that I stopped reading it for some time. But then again, December vacation allows me the luxury of time to go squander and rest, up to my heart content. I tried to read the book and was held like a magnet. It was engaging that I couldn't put my mind away from it. I was glued to it, in a way that I wanted to read the whole book in one setting.

Thanks for giving your good review on this book The Stigma Protocol. The Sigma Protocol is the last novel written completely by Robert Ludlum, and was published posthumously. It is the story of the son of a Holocaust survivor who gets entangled in an international conspiracy by industrialists and financiers to take advantage of wartime technology.
Caguioa747 - 1 point - 3 months ago
I would like to check that sigma protocol got me interested but what i can suggest you is 'Any Human Heart' by William Boyd. It made me feel like a lived a whole other life. I couldn't put it down, and when it was over I couldn't just go to sleep, because that whole extra life was over. Probably never had any book affect me so profoundly.
theresajane - 1 point - 3 months ago
I honestly haven't heard of The Sigma protocol. But, I think I would love to read that.
