Is it possible for 2 people to fall in love with each other all over again? The Wedding surrounds the Lewis Famiy, More Specifically Jane and Wilson, Who have been married for 29 years. But during a busy streak with work, Wilson makes the terrible mistake of forgetting their 29th Anniversary. Jane, upset and sad, starts pulling away, Leaving wilson to realize that he is losing her, or that he already has lost her. Desperate to save his marriage, Wilson begins on the long road of trying to have his wife fall in love with him all over again. The Wedding is the "Sequel" to The Notebook, Although someone can still read it and enjoy it having never read the Notebook. It is more based on Noah and Allies Children, Especially their oldest Daughter Jane. But Noah still plays a big part in this book, It was great to get to know more about him, and to learn more about Him and Allies relationship beyond "The Notebook". Like All Nicholas Sparks' books, You will probably cry, so keep the tissue close by, Which should not be a surprise. This book contains everything we love about Nicholas Sparks, Love, Miracles, Small Town Life and Self Growth. The Wedding is a great summertime read. A quick but lovely story

In Order to save her young brother, She puts him in their secret hiding spot, a cupboard in their room. Promising to return to get him. Julia Jarmond is a 45 year old american who lives in paris with her french husband Betrand and their daughter Zoe. Life for Julia was simple and routine. But when she is given an assigment from the magazine she works for to write about the 60th Anniversary of the Vel D'Hiv roundup. Julia finds herself infatuated with that dark day on July 16, 1942. And finds herself yearning to know more about Sarah. Only Julia soon finds out that a connection stronger than anything she expected links her to the young girl she is fighting to know. Sarah's Key was a truly captivating book. The Book is based on 2 point of views, Someone who endered it, and someone who later on discovered it. It goes back and forth from Past to Present. I found it extremely hard to put down, The things that Sarah and her family and many other Jewish families had to endure had me in tears. The book was very descriptive, Making it easy to imagine yourself there, With Sarah. This book was amazing, and I will recommend it to all my friends. I think it is a book that everyone should read atleast once. It is a rare jem.

Stephenie Meyer has proved herself to be an author that writes about powerful love, love that fights against all odds. She has been known for that from her famous books The Twilight Saga. The Host was a whole new ball game. This book was packed with so much suspense and drama that i found myself flying through the pages dying to know whats going to happen next. The beginning is a little slow but once you pass the 100 page hump it really picks up and gets going. The Entire love story is painful and beautiful. It will make you sad and happy. You Will need the tissues near by for this one. Stephenie Meyer blew me away with this book. I Would love to read a sequel, i hope there will be one. If your looking for a book that is jam-packed with, Passion, Drama, Suspense and most importantly Love then don't pass this book up.
