Me Before You – JoJoMoyes
Hope you all had a wonderful New Year, I certainly did 🙂
(Oppsss, this is the first time I have blogged in the New Year!) Can’t believe it is already 2015, 2014 seemed to fly by! I am really excited for the new year though and I have set myself a few goals this year, which I may do a post about very soon! Like a lot of people I really want to read a lot more this year, I have been reading a lot since I began my internship in June, and would really like to continue this in 2015! I find reading really soothing, helps me sleep better, improves my writing skills and provides me with a little bit of escapism in my life. Basically reading is fabulous!
This posts is about ‘Me Before You’ by JoJo Moyes. I had my eye on this book for a long long long time, after such brilliant reviews on Amazon! It currently has 4863 reviews as I write this, with a 5 star rating, which really is incredible! Whilst I was purchasing some Christmas presents off Amazon, I decided to add this little gem to my basket! I thought I would bring this title to my lovely followers eyes, in case you hadn’t heard of it before!
I am SO glad I purchased this! I read this really quite quickly, I was very hooked! I don’t think I actually read the blurb for this book, because whilst I was reading it, it really wasn’t about the subject that I thought it was. It is a girly romantic kind of story, with a twist. I really like JoJo Moyes as an author, after reading The One Plus One on holiday to Rhodes this year. I find that Sophie Kinsella has a similar writing style / subject, and I really like her too!
This would be such a lovely holiday read, but also a lovely cosy by the fire or in bed read! A really lovely story, I found myself smiling throughout, but be warned, that you will need tissues for the ending, it was very emotional and I cried for quite a while, and I couldn’t get to sleep because it upset me that much 🙁 Haha, I don’t usually get upset by books.. but I definitely do in films, so it really surprised me how much I cried over this story!
The storyline is so so thought provoking, and I LOVE a thought provoking read, I don’t want to spoil it for anyone, but it just really made me think, and the ending wasn’t what I expected!
You really warm to the characters and I feel I kind of appreciate life more, I felt the same after watching / reading ‘The Fault In Our Stars’ too. I worry about an awful lot of things in life, but these two books, as cheesy as it sounds, both hit me in the same way, in that I feel they change my perspective on life. I should stop worrying and appreciate life whilst I can really!
2015 is the year I really want to worry less, and I am facing the things that I fear the most, because, we only have one life, and we really should live it, and I really appreciate that I am currently ‘healthy’
This book is just seriously amazing, and at only £3.85 for paperback, or £3.32 for kindle – it is an absolute BARGAIN. If I haven’t convinced you enough, take a look at all these reviews! Click Here
