I got my book last saturday. I was planning to buy a Nicholas Sparks book but I’ve read it’s summary at the back and it was interesting.


It was really good even though I still haven’t finished it. My classmates told me that the movie is also good & dramatic ( which I still haven’t seen ). The movie was released last 2009, The film stars Susan Sarandon, Amanda Michalka and Stanley Tucci. The film received various accolades, including a Golden Globe, Screen Actors Guild, BAFTA and Academy Award nominations.

Hmm tell me.. is it good? I bet it is! :)


Happy Reading.
