GIVEAWAY: Nicholas Sparks' Novel Learning Series (NLS), including Dear John and A Bend in the Road

If you know me, you know I'm a huge fan of Nicholas Sparks' books, and the book-to-movie adaptations as well. I've reviewed The Best of Me and The Last Song on this blog, and I believe I reviewed The Last Song movie on my film blog as well. So I was excited to hear that Sparks has a teen reading series that takes his novels and adds questions and writing prompts within them so that students can use them to prep for college and the SAT/ACT.

It's called the Novel Learning Series (NLS), and Sparks is including three more books in it this summer: Dear John, A Bend in the Road, and Mary Shelley's Frankenstein.

More info about the series:
  • Each book contains study guides and "question and explanation" sections
  • NLS was launched in 2013 with four of Sparks' books: The Notebook, A Walk to Remember, The Last Song, and Three Weeks with My Brother. The Notebook, Dear John, and The Last Song will also be a part of Walmart's back-to-school promotions.
  • Each book also contains standard test questions, which will help students prepare for standardized tests like the SAT and ACT
  • Sparks has future plans to publish more of his own titles as well as other "classic works" by authors (such as Mary Shelley, with Frankenstein)
One lucky Books I Think You Should Read reader has the opportunity to win two of Sparks' new books in the series, Dear John and A Bend in the Road! Enter via the Rafflecopter form below. The contest will end on Wednesday, August 7th, at 11:59pm EST, and the winner will be contacted on August 8th and have 24 hours to respond, or an alternate winner will be chosen. U.S./Canada only, please.

Good luck!

  1. TBH - It's been awhile since I've read Nicholas Sparks but I would love to try these! My fav is the Notebook.

    1. Had to look up "TBH" lol - "to be honest"?
      I love his books. The Notebook is one of my faves too but they changed the ending in the movie, which I guess worked for the big screen but I was surprised at it.

  2. I still love The Notebook! One of my favorite books by Nicholas Sparks!

    1. Same :) such a classic. I love the movie (and own it) too but the ending was different, which I didn't like.
