Book Review: Me Before You by JoJo Moyes

Rating 4.5 stars out of 5 stars

How can I describe this book to fit in a particular genre is hard. The cover of the book gives it no justice or insight. This isn’t a light fluffy book at all, it’s very rich and beautifully touching. This story, some will say is a romance, but to me it’s hard to classify it as such; therefore, I will say it’s a relationship story about a 15507958woman named Louisa Clark and her growth as a young naive woman that expands her desires in life, versus settling for what she’s expected to be and do.

Be prepared for the handkerchief or tissues, to wipe those tears. Don’t be mislead if your not the crying sort, it’s well worth it. This story stayed with me for weeks and now that I’m finally getting around to writing my review I’m thrown back into it. What a great book, clearly it’s a favorite for me this year in my reading list for 2014.

My Favorite Book Quotes

“You only get one life. It’s actually your duty to live it as fully as possible.” ― Jojo Moyes, Me Before You

“Some mistakes… Just have greater consequences than others. But you don’t have to let the result of one mistake be the thing that defines you. You, Clark, have the choice not to let that happen.” ― Jojo Moyes, Me Before You

“The thing about being catapulted into a whole new life–or at least, shoved up so hard against someone else’s life that you might as well have your face pressed against their window–is that it forces you to rethink your idea of who you are. Or how you might seem to other people.” ― Jojo Moyes, Me Before You

“You cut yourself off from all sorts of experiences because you tell yourself you are ‘not that sort of person’”
“But, I’m not.”
“How do you know? You’ve done nothing, been nowhere. How do you have the faintest idea what kind of person you are?”
― Jojo Moyes, Me Before You
