Romance Books – Top Five Linda Howard Novels

THE NOTEBOOK (2004) is the film version of the mega tear-jerker romance novel of the same name by Nicholas Sparks. Nick Cassevetes (son of John C.) directed his mom and a good cast including good old James Garner for this a truly romantic movie shot in incredibly beautiful locations in South Carolina.

For the singles, do not expect too much this year. Make use of meeting the wrong people to determine who is the right one for you. romance comes, goes. Don’t be attached and take things as they come.

Most of the times, we let the movie makers decide it for us. But, a romantic movie that can spark up a laugh is not always romantic comedy for them. For example, if someone thinks that Fight Club (1999) is a rom-com, can you accept it? Of course, when you’re thinking Project Mayhem, there’s really nothing romantic about it. What you can accept though, is the attraction between The Narrator (Edward Norton) and Marla Singer (Helena Bonham Carter). Watching skyscrapers tumbling one after another together is not exactly an ideal date, but there is clearly romance between them. And some people do think that the movie, and the weird relationship, is funny. After all, she met him at a very strange time in his life.

Male escorts, cheaters, backstabbers, quirky characters, and unexpected love… is there a need to say more? The wedding date is a great movie to keep you laughing, but also shows how a couple can overcome love obstacles and that love can be found in the unexpected. A romantic movie for the couple who needs a good laugh and a lot of drama.

Another movie that surely must be mentioned on this list for me is Love, Actually. As a guy who normally does not like romantic comedies, I was very hesitant to see this movie, but sure am glad I did. It is a very well done movie, regardless of its genre.

You want to tell him how you feel, not blackmail him into saying it back. He may not be ready to say it yet, and if he feels pressured he’ll resent you for it. And no matter what you do, never blurt it out as part of an argument. Screeching, “But I love you!” isn’t romantic, it’s disturbing and selfish.

One the flip side, predictably, reasoning given by men of the bureau is not convincing at all. I haven’t read the short story but my understanding of the literature suggests that “the doors” must be metaphors for a bigger picture their but they are used in their literal meaning in this film. On the whole, it is nice watch, go for it!
