Can’t Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Wishful Endings, to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read. Generally, they’re books that have yet to be released. It’s based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

Dreamland by Nicholas Sparks
Publication Date: September 20, 2022
Publisher: Random House
Contemporary Fiction


From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Wish comes a poignant love story about risking everything for a dream—and whether it’s possible to leave the past behind.
Colby Mills once felt destined for a musical career, until tragedy grounded his aspirations. Now the head of a small family farm in North Carolina, he spontaneously takes a gig playing at a bar in St. Pete Beach, Florida, seeking a rare break from his duties at home.
But when he meets Morgan Lee, his world is turned upside-down, making him wonder if the responsibilities he has shouldered need dictate his life forever. The daughter of affluent Chicago doctors, Morgan has graduated from a prestigious college music program with the ambition to move to Nashville and become a star. Romantically and musically, she and Colby complete each other in a way that neither has ever known.
While they are falling headlong in love, Beverly is on a heart-pounding journey of another kind. Fleeing an abusive husband with her six-year-old son, she is trying to piece together a life for them in a small town far off the beaten track. With money running out and danger seemingly around every corner, she makes a desperate decision that will rewrite everything she knows to be true.
In the course of a single unforgettable week, two young people will navigate the exhilarating heights and heartbreak of first love. Hundreds of miles away, Beverly will put her love for her young son to the test. And fate will draw all three people together in a web of life-altering connections . . . forcing each to wonder whether the dream of a better life can ever survive the weight of the past.

Why I Can’t Wait!

It’s been a while since I’ve read a book by Nicholas Sparks, but I’ve enjoyed every book of his that I’ve read.

  1. I must admit, I have never read a Nicholas Sparks book. Don’t think I’d enjoy one, but I hope you enjoy this one.

  2. It has been yearrrrsss since I’ve read him. I think this sounds good. I read one of his first ones after his divorce and hated it. I can’t remember what it’s called but I remember what it looks like… I think it was called See Me, maybe? I hope this is great though!! I might give it a go.

  3. You remind me that I need to dip my toe into a Nicholas Sparks’ book at some point. The set up for this one sounds like it will be a good heartwarmer.

  4. I do love a good Nicholas Sparks book and it’s been a while for me too (not really into reading about tragedy right now). I hope that you enjoy it Wendy. I look forward to reading your review.

  5. I didn’t even know he was still writing – that sounds like a good story though so I’m going to be adding it to my goodreads

  6. I love his books (the ones I have read so far)! I have so much catching up to do, but eventually I’ll read them all. This sound like another good one. 🙂
