Film Release Date: September 26, 2008

Inspiration: “Nights in Rodanthe was not inspired by specific people in my life, other than the names of the two lead characters.   “No,” I said, “I don’t,” and she quickly responded, “Paul and I would like our names in one of your books.”

The Guardian NS

7. The Guardian

Published Date: 2003

Published Date: 2003

Film Release Date: N/A

True Believer NS

10. True Believer

Publish Date: 2005

Film Release Date: N/A

At First Sight NS

11. At First Sight

Published Date: October 18, 2005

Film Release Date: N/A

Inspiration: “The idea for this book arrived in a burst of inspiration. This seldom happens, by the way. For me, anyway. Usually, the creative process seems less creative and inspiration-based than tedious. “

12. Dear John

Published Date: 2006 

Film Release Date: 2010

Inspiration: ” The most obvious – and relevant – reason that two people who love each other can’t be together is that one or both is already married, and they are loathe to divorce their spouse for family reasons.  This was the “obstacle” that kept the lovers apart in both”

The Choice NS

13. The Choice

Published Date: September 24, 2007

Film Release Date: N/A

Inspiration: “After finishing Dear John, I set out with the hopes of capturing at least a bit of that magic once more, if only to show that I hadn’t forgotten why people began to read my novels in the first place. The Choice was the product of those efforts.”

The Lucky one NS

14. The Lucky One

Published Date: September 30, 2008

Film Release Date: 2012

Inspiration: “The Lucky One is unique among my novels in that it is the only novel inspired by an image.”

The Last Song NS

15. The Last Song

Published Date: September 8, 2009

Film Release Date: 2010

Inspiration: ”  I was gravitating toward writing another “teen” story, especially since I hadn’t done one since A Walk to Remember.  “

Film Release Date: October 17, 2014

The Longest Ride NS

18. The Longest Ride

Published Date: September 17, 2013

Film Release Date: April 3, 2015

Inspiration: “The story for The Longest Ride really began when I learned about Black Mountain College. I had been struggling to find something that excited me for my next novel when I came across a reference to the college online.”

Lastly here are two of Nicholas Sparks Quotes, well 2 of my favorite!

“You’re going to come across people in your life who will say all the right words at all the right times. But in the end, it’s always their actions you should judge them by. It’s actions, not words, that matter.”

-Nicholas Sparks
