I like some of the movies made from Nicholas Sparks books (The Notebook, Nights in Rodanthe, A Walk to Remember, Message in a Bottle, etc.) but I don't like the endings that are usually sad! I was hesitant to read this book because I didn't want a sad ending. I went ahead and bought it since I needed something to read while I was waiting for my husband at the doctor's office. It's a nice story, but I was dreading the ending, the main character was a firefighter and I was just sure he would have an accident! I'm happy to say it had a good ending! Yay! Do you like books with sad endings?
Recently I told you about reading The Help (click here.) I finally saw the movie last week. I liked the movie, but was glad I had read the book before seeing the movie as it filled in a lot of the blanks. I do think the movie was well done. Did you like the book and movie?
Here's another book my daughter gave me for my birthday in May (or Mother's Day.) I have enjoyed it a lot.
It's hardback and has lots of beautiful wedding pictures of William and Kate.
but it is mostly about their life stories, very interesting.
Their college graduation day:
It also has several other stories and photos of other royal weddings, a brief history of each.
Below: Prince Henry and Lady Alice Montagu-Douglas-Scott, 1935
There's twenty-two pages with a brief history of many royal wedding. Photos are in black and white. At first I was a little disappointed about all this in the William and Kate book, but after reading the stories I found it all very interesting, so many heartaches among the royals.
I pray this couple will have a very happy ending!
because they had some different pictures, such as this:
Did you buy any books or magazines about the royal wedding? I was surprised to see some apathy about the wedding in the U.S. I found it all very intriguing! I guess I'm just a romantic at heart!
