A book that taught me what is love

The best love is the kind that awakens the soul and makes us reach for more, that plants a fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds.

– The Notebook

Love..

Whenever i hear this word, the first name that comes to my mind is Noah-Allie.

I will be honest with you guys.. i didn’t really know what love truly is or how it really feels like to be in love until i read The Notebook.

I didn’t plan on falling in love with you and i doubt if you planned on falling in love with me. But once we met, it was clear that neither of us could control what was happening to us.

– The Notebook

From start till end.. it holds your attention and you can’t help but feel a small part of love that Noah and Allie feel for each other.

The story starts with an old man in a hospital who shares thoughts about his life and his beloved. It all starts with a notebook.. a notebook which has captured their memories, their pure, eternal love.

You are the answer to every prayer I’ve offered. You are a song, a dream, a whisper and i dont know how i could have lived without you for as long as i have. I love you Allie, more than you can ever imagine. I always have and i always will.

– The Notebook

Reading that book really made me feel that perhaps there’s nothing better in this world than loving someone with all your heart and soul. There’s nothing as beautiful and as satisfying as loving someone and be loved in return. It taught me what it means to love someone unconditionally with all your heart.

There are so many books written about love, there are also some books that maybe misguide you or plant a wrong idea of love in your mind. For me, reading this book felt like understanding true love.

So it’s not gonna be easy. It’s gonna be really hard! We’re gonna have to work at this every day, but i want to do that because i want you. I want all of you. Forever. You and me… Everyday

– The Notebook

I have cried many times while reading the book.. the letters they wrote for each other, the love they have for each other, the way they struggle to be together, all that makes my heart melt.

When you read the book, it just feels right. The way Nicholas Sparks has written it is outstanding!

While reading that i could actually connect to the characters and understand their emotions. That’s the thing about Nicholas Sparks’s books – he tells you everything about the character, you know why he is the way he is and you could really feel him.

You are every reason, every hope and every dream I’ve ever had and no matter what happens to us in future, every day we are together is the greatest day of my life. I will always be yours.

– The Notebook

For me, Notebook is the best book on love and romance I’ve read till date. And it will always be special 💖

I haven’t really written a book review before and I don’t know how to articulate a book perfectly but i had to write about this one, because Notebook is ♥️.

I hope you read it at least once in your lifetime and more than that, I hope all of us get to experience love so pure and true.


Have you read The Notebook? Or any other book of Nicholas Sparks?

What’s your favourite quote from the book?

I’d ♥️ to know! 🙂

  1. I tried reading one of Nicholas Sparks’ books (I don’t recall which one) and I wasn’t that big a fan of his writing style, but I still really like how he creates stories, so I like the movies based on his books – especially The Notebook.

      1. Hey Vrunda! I have read the book and it is beautiful ❤
        My favorite are:
        “Poets often describe love as an emotion that we can’t control, one that overwhelms logic and common sense. That’s what it was like for me. I didn’t plan on falling in love with you, and I doubt if you planned on falling in love with me. But once we met, it was clear that neither of us could control what was happening to us. We fell in love, despite our differences, and once we did, something rare and beautiful was created.”

        In times of grief and sorrow I will hold you and rock you, and take your grief and make it my own. When you cry, I cry, and when you hurt, I hurt. And together we will try to hold back the floods of tears and despair and make it through.

        Silence is holy. It draws people together because only those who are comfortable with each other can sit without speaking. This is the great paradox.

        Thank you for making me read that🤩

  2. Love that is True and
    Legend is Measured by
    All Four Seasons of Life…
    As Far As Allie and Noah
    And ‘the Notebook’…
    What lives
    Longest is
    The Feeling
    Of LoVE NoW
    As Shells of
    Form Drift Away
    Essence of Love May
    In Deed Be Captured by
    Art too… my Uncle and
    Aunt approaching 90
    Can’t remember
    Their Living
    Children
    But they
    Still Smile
    Together..
    In this way now…
    Love is the memory
    That never Really dies..:)

  3. I have watched movie only. Until last year, I was very much into RomCom movies and watched many. As of now, big NO to love stories in any format. Priorities you see! 😅 Also, the more you read the more characters you will meet and the more shades of love you will get to see. Hope, your best love story be yours own. 🙂
