"Generally speaking, Nicholas Sparks sets out to write an easy-to-read, entertaining, original love story with a poignant ending, one that generates genuine emotion."

I’m always a fan of Nicholas Sparks writing. I love how he portrays an exciting story and the unexpected twist. He always caught my attention how he delivers the plots, the emotional dramas, and full of surprises to the extent. Just when I thought I knew the ending of the story, he is a master in making the readers want it more and longs for another story to unveil. As usual, he never forgets the reality that there are a couple of other permutations that create roadblocks to happiness. The story is formulaic, but is imbued with a great deal of life. He has the charm to tickle the imagination of every one not only the teenagers but different kinds of people whatever their present state, in love or in heart aches.

1999, I started collecting his books. His first novel in my hand was a Message in a Bottle. I like it so much and had decided to follow his writings. Yesterday, while I was busy finding a novel of Elizabeth Gilbert the author of Eat, Pray, Love I saw the missing piece of my collection THE LUCKY ONE. Some say im so weird because of my nature to be attached in their writings. Once I have a favorite author, I make sure I read all his/her novels. The first author I had completed my collection was Sidney Sheldon (sad to say, I lost some of it because of typhoon that rampaged our place) Harry Potter Series (the last book was sent by Ma'am Suming Tsai while I spent my vacation in Philippines. Although Mitch Albom books I also have in my possesion but I'm a bit disappointed, so far i only love his Tuesdays with Morrie. Ironic, Khaled Hosseini stop writing after his 2 best selling novels, (The Kite Runner novel I considered one of the best). The Twilight Series came from Yiyeh. Now, I am following Jodi Picoult :)

It's my dream to have a mini library in my own house. :)
