Last year, at this time I was attempting to complete the #AtoZChallenge. I failed. I got to L and quit. I am not sure why, but if I was to guess I would say real life got in the way.
I was writing about everything - my funny kid, coffee and how I sometimes miss being single. Oddly enough, my most viewed post of all time came from the #AtoZChallenge - Listable Life and Nicholas Sparks' Movies - #AtoZChallenge. The post listed my top 5 reasons that I can't stop watching his movies.
Now, I love Nicholas Sparks' books and I love his movies. But, I don't love that the movies are never as good as the books. Don't get me wrong - they are great as movies but the books are wonderful and the movies lose something in the translation. Like Safe Harbor. Great as a movie but the adaptation lost how wonderful the father was with this children and the quite strength that radiated from the main character.
I would still watch it again because it is Josh Duhamel for crying out loud and he is in a Nicholas Sparks' movie but I may turn down the sound and read the book while I am watching it.
My wish is that he would write screen plays and write books but not make his books into movies.
Oh, who am I kidding? I would read and watch whatever that man put out. I just adore him.
Do you have a favorite from Nicholas Sparks?
Speaking of books... come back tomorrow and join this week's Because Prompts are Fun. This week's theme is books!
