The Guardian by Nicholas Sparks

How I Read It: Audiobook/ Ebook

Dates Read: 6/26/19- 6/28/19

Well looky here! I knew I had read this book before, but man, was this book good! I am kinda disappointed it was never turned into a movie!

This book is about Julie, a widow with a Great Dane (and yes, this took me 5 minutes and this is the best description I could come up with). So Julie went out with this guy Richard, and while they had a few good dates, she just wasn’t feeling him. But home girl was feeling her husband’s best friend (technically he isn’t her ex-husband, but I don’t know what signifier you use for this situation. Widowee? Widower is when the wife dies, which BTW is a really dumb rule, but whatever. Look man, I’m trying here), Mike. When Julie and Mike start to get close, Richard gets mad. As Richard’s stalk continues, Julie and Mike’s relationship is put to the test. But can they survive all this?

Firstly, Singer is a good boy. Give him some Scooby Snax and rub his belly because he deserves the day off.

Secondly, I think this book did a really good job of addressing the feeling of loving someone who was close to your ex. At the end of the day, love is love, and sometimes it does not fall into place at exactly the time you were hoping for. I think this one did a really good job of saying, “hey, that’s okay, but that doesn’t mean you have to be unhappy.”

Thirdly, just read it, man. Just read it.
