Hello bookworms!! Standalone Sunday is a weekly meme created by Megan @bookslayerreads!! She also created the graphic above and gave us permission to use it. This meme is about a standalone book (that is not part of a series) that you loved and would recommend. I highly recommend you check out her blog. Her content is amazing and she is the sweetest.
I know you are all probably wondering why I posted a picture of multiple books. I wanted to recommend a Nicholas Sparks book because like I have said several times on my blog he is my favorite author. All of the books that I have actually read by him are currently packed up though so I couldn’t take a picture of a specific book. Even though I would recommend all of his work (at least the ones I have read so far) for the sake of todays post I am going to go with The Last Song!
Seventeen year-old Veronica “Ronnie” Miller’s life was turned upside-down when her parents divorced and her father moved from New York City to Wilmington, North Carolina. Three years later, she remains angry and alienated from her parents, especially her father… until her mother decides it would be in everyone’s best interest if she spent the summer in Wilmington with him.
Ronnie’s father, a former concert pianist and teacher, is living a quiet life in the beach town, immersed in creating a work of art that will become the centerpiece of a local church. The tale that unfolds is an unforgettable story about love in its myriad forms – first love, the love between parents and children – that demonstrates, as only a Nicholas Sparks novel can, the many ways that deeply felt relationships can break our hearts… and heal them.
I absolutely love all of Nicholas Sparks’ book. They are always so relatable. His characters always go through real life problems some of which I have personally gone through myself in a way. Plus there’s usually a romance that takes place as well. When I first read this book I literally couldn’t put it down and I cried like a baby. I don’t want to say to much about it because I don’t want to spoil it for anyone. Also, this probably will not be the only Nicholas Sparks book that I recommend sorry guys I just love his books so much.
What standalone book would you recommend? Feel free to participate in this meme!!
