Love at First Sight by Nicholas Sparks

            So I started a book club a couple months ago and this month we are reading "The Selection" by Kiera Cass. I encourage you to read this as well and let me know what you think about it. Next month Kiera is coming to Dallas for the Romantic Reads Convention and I am very excited to meet her. I have been waiting a long time to meet her. Who's your favorite author and have you met her/him?

           What a cute book! I love the way the titles reflect the book and the beautiful way Sparks executes the entire book. The development of the characters can always be better, but I believe that Nicholas Sparks did a great job with Lexie and Jeremy. It is set in a small town in South Caroline. He writes articles for various newspapers exposing that the  paranormal has science behind it. But Jeremy meets Lexie at a cemetery in Boone Creek and what else is to happen except fall in love. Of course relationships are not easy. And if you can't do your job to support yourself or your love finds out she is pregnant, that is just the cherry on top of the ice cream. When Lexie finds out she's pregnant Jeremy decides to move to Boone Creek to help her raise his kid. But then he gets mysterious emails from an unknown source making him question everything!
            I would give this book probably a 4/5. It is a good book and I would recommend you read it. I do not think this book is for everybody, but for the romantics  and maybe even if you are not a romantic it could be for you too.
            Join Lexie and Jeremy on their journey through life... Only through about a year's worth, but still. Have fun reading!
"The first time you fall in love, it changes you forever and no matter how hard you
 try, that feeling just never goes away."-Nicholas Sparks

Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins

            I just can't even... It is so good... I don't know that it's realistic, but other than a American school in Paris, I think that it is realistic. Every, almost every, teenage girl dreams of growing up and getting married.

            Anna and St. Claire are my OTP. (One True Pair) We get to see all of them. (All of their imperfections.) Anna is from Atlanta and she grew up in one place. Her parents are divorced and her dad is a romance writer that is quite popular. St. Claire is a short, but confident guy. He is very interesting. He speaks with an English accent, has a french name and is american. They meet at SOAP. (School of America in Paris) And without any friends Anna meets St. Claire, Meridith, Josh, and Rashmid. All of them are seniors except for Josh and we get to read all about this school year. What did they do? Who did they meet? Do they fall in love? They are in the city of LOVE! 
            Don't miss the chance to read this intense book by Stephanie Perkins. The emotions are there. It might make you cry. Anna and St. Claire meet on weird terms and although they came for different reasons, they are a great match. Find out if they end up together and order your own copy here
             I hope you love it as much as I do. I think it is amazing and I hope you read it.
