If you could only have ONE – one book – for the rest of your life. Don’t cheat…what would it be?

Answer: Okay, first I want to say, this question was very hard. I wanted to say Harry Potter. But then I knew it would be torture to only be able to have one of the books in the series and not all of them. So I decided against picking it, though I am not happy about it. I also thought maybe the movies would still be around for me to at least be able to still enjoy him on film since I decided not on the pages.
I then thought maybe The Fault in Our Stars. Then I decided TFIOS will kill me if that is the only book I can read the rest of my life. It is so emotional and heartbreaking I couldn't do it to myself no matter how wonderful the pages are.
I decided on a book that is actually an adult book though I know many of you have read it and loved it. It is a book I read when I had a hurricane rip through my town and wasn't able to have electricity for over a month. The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks. I LOVE this book and I love the movie. It is one of the first Nicholas Sparks books I read and one of the only ones that really has had an impact on my life. So, with me looking for over an hour for which book I want, this is my decision.

Final Answer:
The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks
The Notebook

  4. I haven't read the book, but I have seen the movie. I don't know if I could stick with that one. Plus, I have the small problem that when I read romances I tend to get really angry that my hubby isn't a dreamy fictional character...

  5. I've read the booka nd seen the movie, and I have to admit I enjoy this movie more than the book.

  6. I've seen the movie, have yet to read the book.Hopping through.

  11. Awesome choice! That book would break me though. Like it does every time. I could just read the last half of the book and be an emotional wreck...

  16. Sounds like a great choice! I never read it but I watched the movie and I liked it! :)
    I agree that choosing only one book in the Harry Potter series is a torture! But I don't think I could ever live my life without Harry Potter next to me (well, I could...but I'd be miserable!)

    Follow you on bloglovin'! :)

  17. Hopping through. Though I haven't read this book the movie is an all time tear-jerker fave!

  18. Can't believe I have yet to read this. And, yes, it was such a tough question. My FF

  19. The Notebook is such a beautiful, sigh-worthy story! I haven't seen the movie but my friends are still raving about it, and it came out, like what, a decade ago? Thanks for stopping by my FF. Old follower.

  24. I have not read the book but I did see the movie. I'm a new Bloglovin' follower


  25. LOVE Nicholas Sparks! Love this book too! It's one of the few book to movies that was just fantastic, which is hard to do ;) Happy Friday! Old follower.

  26. I had a really hard time with this one too. I had several that I would choose based on different situations. Loved your reasons for picking this one though.

  27. It was a really hard question! I've seen the movie but not read the book, good choice though :)

  28. I haven't read this one but I've heard about it, looks like a great pick!

  29. Hmmm, The Notebook. I'm not a huge Nicholas Sparks fan, but I did see the movie. It was pretty good. I know some people who are HUGE fans of Sparks, but I'm not D: I'm an old Bloglovin and Google Plus follower :)

    Thanks for visiting my blog!

    Alyssa @ The Eater of Books!

  30. LOL! We both started to go with HP and then didn't for the same reasons...there just no way I could only pick one of them. I would have to have them all or nothing :) Thanks for stopping by this week!

    Traci @ Mad Hatter Reads

  31. Ha! See, I thought of Harry Potter first, too, but so hard to just pick one.
    I haven't read The Notebook, or watched it. My first Nicholas Sparks book was Dear John, so I loved that.

    I'm following you back via bloglovin and thanks for stopping by mine. :)

    Kirsty @ StudioReads

  32. I've not seen the movie or read the book... I admit... I got sick of Spark's formula and swore off any more of his stories (I'm sorry, don't hurt me!)

    However, I can understand how a good romance could be a great book to read over and over.

    1. Don't worry, I understand on the Spark's thing. I've read quite a few of his books trying to get any of them to be anywhere close to this one, but no luck so far. I didn't like most of his other ones. I would definitely still try this one out, I promise it's better than any of the others you've read by him!

  33. The Notebook is quite good. I have seen the movie but not read the book :(

    Following you back.

  34. Good choice! I loved this story too. I was going to pick HP too, but also decided against it because like you said it would be torture to only have one!

    Thanks for stopping by :)
