Still Me by Jojo Moyes

Still Me by Jojo Moyes

I read Me Before You much, much later than everyone else did. I am not one of those people who eschew from things because they are everywhere in popular culture; quite the opposite actually. With the first in Lou’s story I just missed everything. It was very different with After You which I have reviewed here. I read that in 2015 and re-reading my review I think I was very kind. Frankly I didn’t enjoy it. So when I managed to grab an advance copy of Still Me at the end of last year, I was very reticent about actually reading it. But read it I did.

WARNING: there are spoilers for both Me Before You and After You in this review.

I am particularly in love with the green  

I came to Me Before You late and I mean years late. When everyone was gushing about it in 2012 I was completely unaware and more interested in the Olympics. It entered my radar in 2013 when it was a World Book Night book but only in a vague sort of way. Then in 2015 there was a buzz about the movie and I was intrigued. I wanted to read the book before I saw the film – and my review of the book is here. I am so, so glad I waited so long to read the book. Thanks to my ignorance I only had to wait a little over a month to read the sequel After You.

When is tarted reading Me Before You I didn’t realise just how much I would fall in love with it, but I did, as you can see from my review here. So when I had the chance to meet the author Jojo Moyes herself at the launch of the sequel, After You I jumped at the chance. And by jumped I mean I bought the tickets on the first day they went on sale and then counted down the days.

I started reading this book yesterday and finished it today. This morning I was so engrossed in Me Before You that I didn’t notice the train start and fell on a very good looking man. This made some random woman’s day as she couldn’t stop laughing.
