The Book Vixen is having a NIcolas Sparks Challenge

  • Runs January 1, 2011 through December 31, 2011(books read prior to 1/1/11 do not count towards the challenge). You can join at anytime – Sign up on The Book Vixen’s blog.
  • The goal is to read or re-read as many Nicholas Sparks novels as you’d like. See the different levels below and pick the one that works best for you. Nothing is set in stone; you can change levels at any time during the challenge.
  • Books can be any format (bound, eBook, audio).
  • Re-reads and crossovers from other reading challenges are fine.
  • You can list your books in advance or list them as you read them. It is not required that you review the books you read for this challenge but feel free to do so.
  • Post this reading challenge on your blog so you can keep a list of the books you’ve read for this challenge. Please include a link back to this post so readers can join the challenge too.
  • You do not have to be a book blogger to participate. You can keep tabs on books you’ve read for this challenge on Goodreads or LibraryThing if you’d like (maybe make a shelf for “Nicholas Sparks Reading Challenge”). If you are not on either of those sites then you can list the books you read for this challenge in the comments on my wrap-up post, which will be up at the end of 2011.



Levels:
     First Date – Read 1–4 Nicholas Sparks novels
     Going Steady – Read 5–8 Nicholas Sparks novels
     Engaged – Read 9–12 Nicholas Sparks novels
     Married – Read 13–16 Nicholas Sparks novels

List of Nicholas Sparks novels:
     The Notebook
     Message in a Bottle
     A Walk to Remember
     The Rescue
     A Bend in the Road
     Nights in Rodanthe
     The Wedding
     The Guardian
     Three Week With My Brother
     True Believer (read this first, before At First Sight)
     At First Sight (read this after True Believer)
     The Choice

If you need recommendations – like books with a HEA, or books geared towards a YA audience – let me know!


The level I will be trying is The First Date will list books soon.

Thanks for participating in the reading challenge! I can't wait to see which of his novels you read :) And if you need any recommendations, let me know.

Thannks I surely could use some recommendations , been wanting to read him but never have.

The Book Vixen said...

Do you want a HEA (Happy Ever After ending), something geared towards a YA crowd?

I ask about the HEA because most of his books do NOT have a HEA.

BLHmistress said...

I do enjoy HEA's but they don't necessarily have to be a top priority for me to read no.

The Book Vixen said...

If you're looking for a HEA then I'd recommend The Lucky One, The Rescue and A Bend in the Road.

If romantic suspense is your liking, then I'd recommend The Guardian and Safe Haven.

For YA, I'd recommend A Walk to Remember, The Last Song and Dear John.
