Safe Haven by Nicolas Sparks

Published by: Grand Central Publishing
Pages: 340

This is a fantastic light read, it is good to get a break from all the books I have been reading with a lot of heavy topics.

Katie is a really great strong character, I admire her strength to get through what she did, and is still able to come out of it and live a somewhat normal life. At the beginning of the novel we come to understand why Katie acts the way that she does, and why she keeps to herself.

I really liked Alex as well, he is a very genuine man, willing to help anyone that he can. I loved getting to know the relationship that he has with his children, and how they rely on each other.

The only part of this book that I would have liked to have seen changed would have been when the "I love you's" were exchanged, I felt it was incredibly early, and I think it would have suited the end of the book perfectly with the events that went on there, it would have made it a perfect romance novel for me.

As far as romance novels go for me, this is a 4/5, and I cannot wait to see it on the big screen, the actors chosen look like they will make it a good movie.


  1. I can't believe I've never read a Sparks book. My mom loves them. Glad you enjoyed it!

    1. Thank you for commenting! You should check out some of his books, they are really good light romantic reads, a nice break from some of the paranormal elements sometimes.

  2. OMG! Yes. I can not wait to watch the movie. It's going to be soooo good!
