Amazed. Utterly amazed.
Never have I been so taken with a book from the off. I, being a true indie weirdo, tend to avoid ‘trendy books’, but when I saw the movie trailer on YouTube: I just had to read it.
The irony was – I’ve had this book on my shelf since 2012, buying it just after the ‘3 million copies sold’ mark. Now, ME BEFORE YOU has sold over 5 million copies; just a few short years later.
I posted this mid-read review on my Instagram page the other day:
***MIDREAD BOOK REVIEW*** Started reading this last night after I saw my friend @melissawood1 couldn’t put it down… and now neither can I! (Which is really bad of me, as it’s been on my bookshelf for at least two years…) I was hooked on the first page: the characters are so raw and unromantic that you’re instantly intrigued.
I’m only on Chapter 5 and I’m 80% sure this will end up on my Fave List!
Don’t think it will take too long to finish this one! #mebeforeyou #bookstagram #books #booktag #bookreview #bookhaul #jojomoyes #romancereads #amreading #instareview #vintage #bookclub
I ended up staying awake until 6 am to finish the book – and I don’t regret it one bit!
***END OF READ BOOK REVIEW*** The last time I cried this much at a book was at #theperksofbeingawallflower.
I read ME BEFORE YOU in about 9 hours… and it was worth staying up until 6am to do so. I rarely come across books that effect me, but this is a game changer.
I won’t give anything away. Just go and read it, now.

It’s been a few days since I finished reading, but I still can’t get Lou and Will out of my head. It was such a beautifully harsh story. It’s not just about love or romance: it’s about the hardships life throws at us.
It’s the only book I’ve read that tells the truth: life really isn’t fair. And sometimes, even the love of your life can’t change that.
