    There are stories that rise from mysterious, unknown places, and others that are discovered, a gift from someone else. Found near a sandy dune, on an actual stretch of North Carolina beach, sits a community mailbox—owned by no one and everyone. A character in its own right, Kindred Spirit rests atop a driftwood post, waiting to share the hopes and dreams entrusted by past visitors, along with this resounding message: love endures. Letters and p...

    Spoilers ahead! I just finished Every Breath this morning and it turned out to be pretty good. Once I got about half way through I was leary with the direction the book was taking, but by the end it came together nicely.Hope is in a relationship that she isn't exactly content with. Her boyfriend Josh doesn't seem to be committing and after six years she wonders what their future holds. Her dad has been diagnosed with a debilitating health conditi...

    I loved this novel. For those that enjoy a timeless, classic, romantic love story....check this one out. From the beginning author’s introduction from Nicholas Sparks to the very end, I was fully enraptured and captivated. As so many important novels do, it had me thinking about life and circumstance throughout reading and left me with similar questioning thoughts once I turned the last page. This book has all the makings of a love story to rem...

    *https://mrsbbookreviews.wordpress.com3.5 starsThe king of contemporary romance fiction returns with a brand new love story titled, Every Breath. This is a love at first sight classic romance, that sees destiny play a huge role in shaping the lives of two individuals, Tru and Hope. Sparks describes his latest novel as ‘a classic story of lovers long denied’. I think this quote perfectly summarises what you can expect when you pick up Every Br...

    After six years with her boyfriend Josh, Hope Anderson is not sure what comes next. Far too often the relationship between her and Josh is one that fluctuates between on and off. She needs to decide what she wants and how much she is prepared to invest in a relationship that seems to be going nowhere. The other main character is Tru (short for Truitt) Wallis, a safari guide, who has lived for many years in Zimbabwe, a country he has no intention ...

    Eeep - finally another Nicholas Sparks book!I just love his stories. A WALK TO REMEMBER was the book that started my reading addiction back in 2002 or somewhere around that time.Every Breath is really heartbreaking and sad and moving and hopeless but also full of hope and love and family and loss and ... so much. Full of all those beautiful and heartbreaking things a Nicholas Sparks book needs.☺We start with 42 year old Zimbabwe tour guide Tru....

    Aún me cuesta entender por qué me gustó tanto este libro, pero es que los amores imposibles para mi son mi placer culpable y el autor ha escrito un romance que me caló hasta los huesos. Debe ser por que no es una novela juvenil y siento que la historia tiene mucho peso, pero tanto Tru como Hope se van a quedar un buen tiempo en mi mente y en mi corazón!Reseña completa: https://megarybookss.blogspot.com/201...

    Title: Every BreathSeries: StandaloneAuthor: Nicholas SparksRelease date: October 16, 2018Every Breath had a lot of promise to be a big winner for me, but unfortunately it didn't reach the expectations that I anticipated. Based on the synopsis, it sounded like an emotional ill-fated love story with the potential for a second chance later in life. How long can a dream survive? it poses. Mistakes were inevitable, and she’d concluded that regrets...

    “The destiny that matters most in anyone’s life is the one concerning love.” Every Breath is a tear jerker. You have been warned!For the longest time, I resisted reading Nicholas Sparks novels. I had seen the movies like A Walk to Remember, Message in a Bottle, Dear John and The Notebook. So I knew his main characters either didn't stay together or one of them died. As a true romantic, this really hurt my heart. Then, I read The Longest Ri...

    What a beautiful story. It just shows you how small the world can be at times. Once I started reading it, I didn’t stop. A quick one sitting read. One thing I thoroughly enjoyed about this one was Nicholas Sparks’ personal words within the book. It really indicated how moved he was by the true story that inspired him in writing this book. It was lovely. There’s really no other way to put it. My quick and simple overall: devastatingly beauti...

    I’ve been pretty critical of Nicholas Sparks’ last few books. I have always admired his novels and credited him for being such a force in the Romance genre, as a male author I think it is so unique!! I’ll probably repeat myself again but when he wrote The Notebook, Message in a Bottle, The True Believer duet, nights in Rodanthe, his memoir 3 weeks with my brother - he really upped his game, those were all my favorites!!! And I have to remem...

    I really wanted to give this 5 stars before I read it, because I love Nic Spark books. However, this one had just a little too much unbelievable sap for me. Too far fetched. I disliked the 20year fast forward as well. I’m both disappointed and pleased. I liked it in spots and I disliked it 🤷🏽♀ I really wanted to give this 5 stars before I read it, because I love Nic Spark books. However, this one had just a little too much unbelievabl...

    Nicholas Sparks, you never cease to amaze me. With your words you create worlds and stories I could never even imagine, and in a few pages you make us read about the love of a lifetime. And “Every Breath” is just another example of how great and unique your writing skills are. Thank you, thank you, thank you, for making me believe and fall in love with love itself at every turning page.

    “It’s because of you, after all, that I now believe in miracles. With us, I want to believe that anything will always be possible.” I remember the first Nicholas Sparks novel I ever read. I was in 6th grade (2003) and I picked up A Walk to Remember at Walmart. It was the movie tie in cover, with Mandy Moore and Shane West holding hands— which I still have to this day. I read the whole book that night and begged my mom to buy me the movie...

    2.5 starsEvery Breath is the first Nicholas Sparks book I have read. I wanted to love it but, unfortunately, I was underwhelmed. The author wants us to believe that Tru and Hope fall passionately in love after spending two days together. It is not entirely improbable, but to me it felt more like two strangers forming a wonderful bond of friendship rather than starting a romance. Any sparks are tepid at best, and the declarations of love come out ...

    Romance novels aren’t really my genre but I’ve heard a lot of good things about Nicholas Sparks and thought it was time to try and read a novel by him. That’s not the only reason I picked this book, but also because the story seemed really nice and it seemed like something I would enjoy reading. What I liked most about this novel is that it’s a true story and it’s just such a cute little romance novel with an equal amount of sad moments...

    This book was just okay for me. Interesting enough to keep me reading but I never connected with the characters. And instead of finding their story wildly romantic, I found it way too unrealistic. Normally that doesn’t bother me but when even the conversations between characters seem forced and awkward, nothing hits home for me. I didn’t even shed a single tear for what I’m guessing was supposed to be the emotional bombshell at the end. Fir...

    2.5 starsI'm annoyed by the fact that I don't hate Sparks' books even though they annoy the crap out of me more and more. Yet I keep reading them. Wtf, Kelly? Get your shit together.My main annoyance with this one was the woman basically stayed with her shitty boyfriend instead of the hot African dude solely because she wanted children and Mr. Africa was sterile. So she gets her kids which end up barely getting mentioned because she's pining for ...

    In typical Nicholas Sparks fashion this love story is almost unbearably sappy but shines in that it’s based loosely on a real couple spanning decades. If you need a good cry or are in the mood to believe in true love pick this one up!

    Classic NS. This is written in a very unique way. I don’t want to say too much and ruin the storyline for anyone but I enjoyed the not so happily ever after ending that was happily ever after. This also reminded me a bit of Bridges of Madison County (one of my faves).

    *2 stelle e mezzo*Non so, leggo Sparks da anni ma a questo libro manca decisamente qualcosa!Bello l'espediente di Kindred Spirit: una cassetta delle lettere solitaria, poggiata sulla spiaggia per raccoglie i desideri e rimorsi di chiunque abbia voglia di lasciare un pezzo della sua storia all'oceano e a chi passerà di lì... Interessante lo scorcio d'Africa che viene proposto, sebbene in maniera frettolosa. Però la trama di per sé non ha nulla...

    Que saudades de ler um livro do autor! Um livro maravilhoso, lindo e com uma história tão bem escrita! Adorei a introdução para o leitor entender o enquadramento da história! Gostei tanto da caixa de correio "Alma gémea",saber que há pessoas que escrevem cartas tão bonitas! Não vou desvendar mais nada sobre o livro... leiam, pois vale bem a pena!

    Sparks jest dla mnie fenomenem. Nie mogę się nadziwić, że takimi książkami zdobył tak wielką popularność wśród czytelników. Jego opisy miały chyba być piękne i patetyczne, a za każdym razem wychodzą tak banalnie, że oczy bolą podczas czytania. Dialogi? Nie znam ludzi, którzy tak ze sobą rozmawiają. Zresztą dialogów jest stosunkowo niewiele w porównaniu do rozdmuchanych opisów, które wypełniają znaczną część jego ...

    I can always rely on Nicholas sparks for a beautifully written love story, one that makes me cling to every word cry and laugh and just never want to put the book down and miss the characters as soon as I close the book when I’m finished reading. Every breath introduces us to Tru Walls who travels from Zimbabwe to North Carolina to meet his biological father. Here he meets Hope Anderson. The five days Tru and Hope spend together will forever ch...

    Nicholas Sparks is one of those authors that I never would've picked up by myself. This is the second book of his, and the more romantic of the two.Hope and Tru are star crossed lovers, but mature ones. Though there is tragedy and angst, they make mature decisions. (Though I do wonder how many men like Tru are actually out there.)I cried at two different places.
