WHAT I'VE BEEN READING | Me Before You♥


Me Before You - JoJoMoyes

Hello lovelies! 

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

Have you read this book? What did you think of it? 

Is there anything that you would recommend me reading? I am ADDICTED! :) 

Hope you enjoy the book,

Kayleigh,

  1. I read this book on my holidays earlier on in the year and I LOVED it! I read it fairly quickly, but it was just such a good read. Really connected to the characters as well, which I think is so important in a book!

  5. I read One Plus One earlier in the year, but although I think I'd enjoy it I can't quite bring myself to read this one, after reading all the reviews which allude to the ending...
    I've become hooked on Liane Moriarty books recently - I've read four now but my favourite is What Alice Forgot. If you want a bit of light reading, but with a few twists and turns then check her out! xo

  11. Might give this a read! Apart from the fault in our stars the only other book that made me cry was the first last kiss that was a great read to.
