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 part of a book blog tour! I love these because a) I get to read a book well before publication, and b) well, I get to read a book well before publication.  Initially I wasn’t sent an actual copy of a The House. I was sent an envelope with a set of keys and a clue to unlocking a website….

Once I managed to solve that clue I was sent a copy of this book. It arrived almost perfectly as my holiday to Canada began so into my hand luggage it went. Enter stage left my mum who decided that she wanted to travel to Canada without hand luggage. I don’t know what her plan was – to survive a ten hour flight on wishful thinking and glitter? – but she lasted about three minutes after take-off before asking me if she could read The House. Since I am The Best Daughter In The World, I gave her the book and then spent a sizeable amount of time watching her plough through it, trying not to scream at one more exclamation of shock.

My first ever sports bra was a Shock Absorber one. I loved it and it suited my needs perfectly. However after working out more and developing muscles on my upper back, shoulders, and arms I found it really difficult to take the bra off. Enter stage left the new Ultimate Run Bra. I was so excited to try it on and do a few workouts with it. My review is below!

Stretching the truth on Instagram…we all do that don’t we? We pretend we ‘woke up like this’ when really it took 35 minutes to get the pillow creases from our face. No one wants to see pillow creases. What Katie Brenner does in Sophie Kinsella’s My Not So Perfect Life is take that one step further. She takes pictures of other people’s food and coffees when they are in the loo and posts it.

Yes. She does that.

When I read that I realised I couldn’t quite relate to Katie Brenner as much as I probably should have.

At the end of 2016 Beyond the Bathroom Scale’s Karen Oliver sent me a copy of her 12 Week Health, Fitness, and Wellness Planner. I was so excited to use this but when it arrived was actually terrified of getting started. So I put it off. Then I put it off a little more. Once 2017 started I gave myself a stern talking to and opened this beautiful planner.
