The Lucky One by Nicholas Sparks

Sorry for the lack of posts, AGAIN. My internet has been acting all weird and it's still not acting completely normal.That's why there's no picture for this post :( Today's book is The Lucky One by Nicholas Sparks. The description of this book is:


After U.S. Marine Logan Thibault finds a photograph of a smiling young woman buried in the dirt during his tour of duty in Iraq, he experiences a sudden streak of luck — winning poker games and even surviving deadly combat. Only his best friend, Victor, seems to have an explanation for his good fortune: the photograph — his lucky charm.

Back home in Colorado, Thibault can't seem to get the woman in the photograph out of his mind and he sets out on a journey across the country to find her. But Thibault is caught off guard by the strong attraction he feels for the woman he encounters in North Carolina - Elizabeth, a divorced mother — and he keeps the story of the photo, and his luck, a secret. As he and Elizabeth embark upon a passionate love affair, his secret soon threatens to tear them apart — destroying not only their love, but also their lives.


So, this book isn't technically YA fiction, but it was still really good! As long as you're about 14+ this book should be fine for you. Nicholas Sparks' books are never too inappropriate, but they are more mature. Anyway, I really loved this book! The first book by Nicholas Sparks that I read was The Choice, and that one disappointed me a lot. I didn't really like that one, but The Lucky One was VERY good! The main characters aren't too old to enjoy their experiences and it is a really cool story. I love Ben, he's just so cute! This book had me wanting to know what happened sooo bad. I loved everything about this book, except Clayton, but that's normal. You guys will see why. This book has a cute romance, a little suspense, and a great plot! Nicholas Spark's is a very talented writer and I love that his books are always set in North Carolina. When I went to meet Sarah Dessen, I actually saw some of the places he mentions in his books! So, bottom line, try this book if you like a good love story! Hope you guys enjoy :)

  4. So I can't let my daughter read it? Hmmm, she loves this site and she's read almost all of the books you've recomended and now this one is too old.

  5. Mrs. Tapes,
    It's really up to you if you think your daughter should read it or not. The reason I said around 14 and up is because it has a lot of adult things in it. It has descriptions of bad war images, a lot vulgar things towards women because of one of the characters, and some swearing. If you think your daughter is mature enough to be fine with that, then she can read it. I'm not saying its way too horrible for her, I just recommended that age group. Hope that helps :)
