Now, it's time to vote for the Sparks books you think are his best, vote down any you don't like and, if you want, re-rank this list in any order you want.

Nicholas Sparks' best books are those that include sweeping, poignant, romantic stories. His works are heavy on the romance, with some stories covering decades of togetherness. Not everyone is a Sparks fan (some believe he's among the lamest authors of all time), and that's perfectly okay. To each his own, right?

Many of the best Nicholas Sparks books have been turned into major motion pictures. In 1999, the first big screen adaptation of a Sparks novel, 'Message in a Bottle,' starring Kevin Costner and Robin Wright, was released. That was followed by 2002's 'A Walk to Remember' (starring Mandy Moore and Shane West) and then 2004's 'The Notebook.'

Of all Nicholas Sparks movie adaptations, 'The Notebook' is perhaps the most popular. It certainly ranks way up there among the greatest chick flicks of all time. The film made a star out of Ryan Gosling, and he had incredible on-screen chemistry (and off) with his co-star, Rachel McAdams.

Say what you want about Nicholas Sparks' books, but it is impossible to argue that he's beloved by millions of romance readers. If you've read all of Sparks' novels and want to find a new writer that's similar, check out this list of authors like Nicholas Sparks for inspiration.
