2011 Nicholas Sparks Reading Challenge - FAILED

Nicholas Sparks Reading Challenge

Nicholas Sparks Reading Challenge
hosted by The Book Vixen


  • Runs January 1, 2011 through December 31, 2011(books read prior to 1/1/11 do not count towards the challenge). You can join at anytime – Sign up on The Book Vixen’s blog.
  • The goal is to read or re-read as many Nicholas Sparks novels as you’d like. See the different levels below and pick the one that works best for you. Nothing is set in stone; you can change levels at any time during the challenge.
  • Books can be any format (bound, eBook, audio).
  • Re-reads and crossovers from other reading challenges are fine.
  • You can list your books in advance or list them as you read them. It is not required that you review the books you read for this challenge but feel free to do so.
  • Post this reading challenge on your blog so you can keep a list of the books you’ve read for this challenge. Please include a link back to this post so readers can join the challenge too.
  • You do not have to be a book blogger to participate. You can keep tabs on books you’ve read for this challenge on Goodreads or LibraryThing if you’d like (maybe make a shelf for “Nicholas Sparks Reading Challenge”). If you are not on either of those sites then you can list the books you read for this challenge in the comments on my wrap-up post, which will be up at the end of 2011.


     First Date – Read 1–4 Nicholas Sparks novels
     Going Steady – Read 5–8 Nicholas Sparks novels
     Engaged – Read 9–12 Nicholas Sparks novels
     Married – Read 13–16 Nicholas Sparks novels

I am going for the Engaged level. Every book listed below, with the exception of The Wedding, Three Weeks With My Brother and Safe Haven, will be a re-read for me.

  1. The Best of Me

I failed this challenges miserably. And it was my own reading challenge!! I still hope to get around to reading The Wedding, Three Weeks With My Brother and Safe Haven as well as re-read some of his other novels.

    Very nice badge.

    BTW - I meant your favourite Nicholas Sparks book, lol, I can't imagine you trying to come up with the 'ultimate' favourite.

    I'm almost definitely not going to join this one (LOL!), but I have to say I was surprised to learn that Nicholas Sparks is now the author of sixteen novels! I remember when I could count them all on the fingers of one hand. Where did the time go . . . ?
