Rating: 3.8/5


It was 1958 and Landon Carter was spending his time eating peanuts, applying to colleges, and passing time as he finished his last days at Beaumont High School. He never knew that going to Homecoming with Jamie Sullivan, the town’s good girl, would change his life. As, he begins to spend more time with Jamie he begins to understand what it means to do something for someone else. Jamie shows him the depth of the human heart through her daily acts of love and compassion. Landon sees her compassion and begins to wonder if he has fallen in love with Jamie Sullivan.



I know okay I’m a cliché for reading Nicholas Sparks but this book was lovely and sweet and just what I needed after Valentines Day. Landon and Jamie’s story is so cute and incredibly cliché she’s the innocent girl who carries around a bible and he’s the guy who thinks he’s the shit. So, after starting this book I heard from many people that it was incredibly sad but me being a dummy decided “No it couldn’t be sad it’s such a sweet story.” But I was wrong, this is how it happens he says “I love you” and then she says “I’m dying” at this point I am full on bawling and screaming at the book “FUCK YOU NICHOLAS SPARKS!”

So, if your looking for a sweet and sad story read this book but by the end you will want to scream from anguish.



Here’s a song that I think fit the book;

Good Girls– 5 Seconds of Summer

“She’s a good girl
A straight A-student
She’s really into all that self-improvement
I swear she lives in that library
But if you ask her she’ll say,

“That’s where you’ll find me!”

But if you look then you won’t find her there
She may be clever but she just acts too square
‘Cause in the back of the room, where nobody looks,
She’ll be with her boyfriend, she’s not reading books”

  1. Ok I haven’t read this book and I’ve only seen the movie which btw I loved. I like sappy love stories…I cried when I saw the movie, I’ll admit it. But you know I never knew the story was supposed to be set in 1958. Wow. Thanks for the review.
