  1. Great list! I have read and seen the Nicholas Sparks’ ones and cried a little too much. 😀🙈 I am currently reading this book ‘ The fault in our stars’ by John Green. That’s also made into a movie, and has good ratings too. I think you will like the book. May be, you have already read it. Have you?

    1. Hey…. Nicholas Sparks is an amazing writer, isn’t he?? But most of his works somehow contains a devastating incident or ending.. my fourth part will be about all his works.
      And yeah I had read ‘The Fault In Our Stars’. I read it during my holidays. Within three days, I completed the book because I was obsessed with the whole story… I fell in love with Augustus Waters and Hazel Grace!!! Their love is unique. But my advice is that don’t take the book too close to you,like I did. You will take over weeks to recover (not a spoiler but… ) But it is amazing. You will love it!
      If you have read it till chapter two, the I will tell you the lines that i loved the most..
      The paragraph starting with ” I FELT This WEIRD MIX OF DISAPPOINTMENT…” To ” IT’S A METAPHOR”
      Look at the end of chapter 1.
      That was my favourite part!
