Me Before You

Me Before You (Me Before You, #1)Me Before You by Jojo Moyes
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Dear Goodreads-

Can you please give me half-star ratings? I devoured this book - hooked, almost against my will, in to the story of Will and Lou. The preview of the movie based on this book made me think that "Me Before You" was a romance. It really isn't, and for that reason, I loved it more. Really I want to give this book 4.5 stars because I've thought of the story every day since I finished it.

Also, can you give more tags or warnings to the books? Like, this book is not made for public consumption aka no reading in coffee shops or parks. I ugly cried through the ending. I just couldn't help it. Lately, I've thought so much about living a more authentic life and not wasting time - it's too short not to live well. This story is a thought provoking look into what it means to pursue your path - whether or not people agree with that path. I may not don honeybee tights or get a tattoo with a "best before" date, but I want to look back at my days and years and be content with my choices. I am definitely content with the time I spent reading this book.

Happy reading and happy living!

Love, Me

ps. Seriously, where are we on the half stars? Not all fours are created equal.

Have you seen the movie? I laughed and cried all the way thru- loved it. And we've been drawn towards the same type of stories on living authentically. So great to remember not to waste moments, time, thoughts on things that don't matter 💛
