Een paar maanden na mijn Summer Reading List, ben ik de boeken weer gaan opzoeken. De liefde voor lezen verdwijnt niet en – ook al heb ik weinig tijd – ik wil weer beginnen lezen! Het lijkt alweer zo lang geleden, hoewel ik vorige maand nog twee boeken in m’n handen had. Mijn lijstje werd wat uitgebreider toen ik op vakantie vertrok. Uiteindelijk las ik: “Safe Haven” van Nicholas Sparks, “Girls in White Dresses” van Jennifer Close, “Twenties Girl” van Sophie Kinsella en “Don’t want to miss a thing” van Jill Mansell. Vooral “Twenties Girl” en “Safe Haven” vond ik echt de moeite waard! Deze boeken moet je gelezen hebben.
Wat staat er op mijn lijstje voor deze herfst?
It’s been a while, but Lara Carson’s back in Bath and lives are set to change as a result. Because Lara left her family and boyfriend Flynn eighteen years ago without a word to anyone. Why has no one heard from her since?
Her childhood best friend Evie is thrilled Lara’s back and able to share her happiness. Evie’s about to walk down the aisle with her dream man, Joel. Or so she thinks…
Then there’s Flynn Erskine, even more attractive now and stunned to see Lara again. The spark between them is as strong as ever, but how’s Flynn going to react when he discovers the secret she’s been keeping from him?
Oh yes, there’s a lot of catching up to be done…
“Everyone wanted to believe that endless love was possible. She’d believed in it once, too, back when she was eighteen.”
In the spring of 1984, high school students Amanda Collier and Dawson Cole fell deeply, irrevocably in love. Though they were from opposite sides of the tracks, their love for one another seemed to defy the realities of life in the small town of Oriental, North Carolina. But as the summer of their senior year came to a close, unforeseen events would tear the young couple apart, setting them on radically divergent paths.
Now, twenty-five years later, Amanda and Dawson are summoned back to Oriental for the funeral of Tuck Hostetler, the mentor who once gave shelter to their high school romance. Neither has lived the life they imagined . . . and neither can forget the passionate first love that forever changed their lives. As Amanda and Dawson carry out the instructions Tuck left behind for them, they realize that everything they thought they knew—about Tuck, about themselves, and about the dreams they held dear—was not as it seemed. Forced to confront painful memories, the two former lovers will discover undeniable truths about the choices they have made. And in the course of a single, searing weekend, they will ask of the living, and the dead: Can love truly rewrite the past?
