See Me by Nicholas Spark review
This book was definitely the first book in QUITE some time that I started and finished! With life being as crazy as it was over the last year, I would always start a book, but then never finish it. However for my 2016 resolution, I decided that I would read SOMETHING every single day. Whether it’d be a page, 10-pages, 100-pages, I promised myself to just read. I set a goal to read 12 books in a year. I’m hoping to read more, but we’ll start there…however…this may be easier than I thought as my first book of 2016 was completed in 1 week. :) Now, I did start with a book by my favorite author, so that may have attributed to how quick I read this book. LOL :)
BUT, I do have to say that this book kept me wanting more. It was an easy read and definitely was interesting at time. I tried to figure out the “twist” the further I read, but I couldn’t do it until it was right in front of me. A few things I caught, but not the main details to the ending situation. The book is mainly about Colin and his second chance at life. We find out that Colin has a history of violence which made him choose some bad decisions which lead to dodging the threat of prison numerous times. To keep his head on straight, Colin decides to apply himself towards a teaching degree so he can possibly change someone’s else’s life and get them on the right path before it’s too late.
We are also introduced to Maria, the hardworking daughter of Mexican immigrants. She’s you’re typical hard working young lawyer looking to make a name for herself by being married to her work. However, Maria’s life also has a traumatic history that compelled her to return to her hometown and start “fresh.”
The stars align and Colin and Maria meet by chance, which ends up happening once again thanks to Maria’s sister, in which as love unexpectedly takes hold between them, they dare to envision what a future together could possibly look like until Maria’s past begin to surface that brings on a series of threatening incidents. Maria and Colin are tested in increasingly terrifying ways.
I can definitely see this becoming a movie as it’s written very vividly and detailed with every word. Sparks definitely does it again by pulling me out of my reading slump! :)
