    1. Uhm. It is somehow related because Gone Girl tackles obsession which was also present in some of Nicholas Sparks novels, like in Safe Haven. Katie’s husband is obsessed with her. And in The Guardian as well where Richard is obsessed with Julie.

      Thank you for the visit! 😀


      1. Oh I completely understand. 🙂 Gone Girl is really crazy. And at once glance Sparks novels look too cheesy but sometimes Nicholas also features some creepiness in his stories. 🙂

        Thank you for the visit! 🙂


  1. This is a great great list! I love Nicholas Sparks! I have all his books so this was an exciting post! I’ve only read If I Stay and TFIOS from your list but I’ve read other Jodi Picoult books and they were fantastic! I’ve also read Rainbow Rowell books and Mitch Albom books, just not the ones here haha. Thanks for the recommendations!
