safe haven

On Thursday, Safe Haven -- the eighth film based on a Nicholas Sparks novel -- arrives in theaters just in time for your Valentine's Day-themed romantic pleasures. Sparks' published books -- of which there are now 17 -- are known for their romantic themes and simple if vague titles. To date, those titles include: The Notebook, A Bend in the Road, Nights in Rodanthe and Message in a Bottle.

This post began as a conversation about what we'd name a Nicholas Sparks book or movie if we were to be given such an honor (yes, booze was initially involved). Regardless, we wrote down our favorite fake Nicholas Sparks titles and we are now publishing them here.
