As much as I like a good love story, I wouldn t call myself a romantic Not by a long shot In fact, I can be pretty cold hearted when it comes to romance books, remaining emotionless in the face of tragic heartbreak and loss The Fault in Our Stars didn t move me Eleanor Park was cute, but still an average read for me There s just certain things that I don t like Emotionally manipulative books that feel as if the author set out with an agenda to tug at my heart strings that would be up there with [...]
WARNING UNPOPULAR OPINION TIME People seem to love opening their reviews of this book with gifs of ugly crying I see your ugly crying and I raise you some rage This not a romance novel.This is a story that revolves around an immature, self centered, vacuous woman named Louisa She has no desire to do anything in life or better herself in any way, is perfectly content to work whatever job she can find, allow herself to be stuck in a loveless relationship, and forever remain a selfish child FFS, th [...]
I m sitting here with tears running down my face having just finished this book I know I should probably let my emotions settle before reviewing but I want to get all the feelings downFirstly I want to say that the cover does not do this book justice It gives the impression of a bland and fluffy read when in reality this is a heartbreaking story, with subject matter that may be difficult for a lot of readers The characters begin as likeable, yet maddeningly realistic in all their egocentricities [...]
Being a male reader on a booksite you kind of expect to be outnumbered when it comes to the sexes But that doesn t keep alarm bells from blaring like a convoy of reversing trucks when practically every reviewer of a book is of the female gender And when the author in addition is touted as the winner of multiple romance novel awards your primal male instinct is to run like your being chased by some primordial predator.So it was really against my instinct and better judgement that I began reading [...]
Did anyone else notice that the ultimate message of this book is that a disabled life is not worth living, even despite a caring family, endless wealth, the best medical care, and by the end of the book a devoted, loving romantic partner For a while I was enjoying the story, but by the end I was deeply distressed about the moral and ethical implications of the book s ending The book juxtaposes an adventurous, athletic, and sexually active lifestyle with life in a wheelchair and decides that life [...]
My video review discussion on this incredible book youtube watch v IbgM4 This was one of the best books I have ever read So good that it makes me want to lower the ratings of all of the other books I have read just so that this and maybe Clockwork Princess is the only book with a 5 star rating I can t properly describe right now how exactly this book moved me and made me analyze my own thoughts, as I am still currently crying, but just know that it did Absolutely wonderful.
Despite being a bit predictable, I adored this book I love the characters, and I sort of want to pick it back up and read it again I could have easily flown through this book in a day if I d had time , but I m glad I took my time with it I really got to know the characters, and I really liked the ending, and how it contrasted the beginning of the story SO BEAUTIFUL.
This book showed love and it s beautiful nature but also the harsh reality of life.Totally sobbed at the end.ing about filming a review because I have a lot to say about this book.Very well done, heartbreakingly so
I had a hard time rating this book one star, because up until the end I really liked it But the end is the most important part of every book because it s what stays with you and after that I just can t bring myself to rate it anything but did not like it.I am honestly shocked after reading all those 5 reviews Not because people liked the book, but because people somehow manage to get something inspirational and romantic out of it Seriously I don t want to judge people for their opinion, but that [...]
There goes my heart.Hold on I need a few seconds to make sense of what happened I can t believe it I was warned it would come as a shock, and even the author gently glided our thoughts toward that idea, but I still felt that PANG in my chest when reading the ending.That s all I m going to say about that, for fear of spoiling anything for you.Louisa is a simple girl She works She cares for her family She does what she has to do She doesn t take risks or ever act recklessly It s not who she is her [...]
Update 2 20 17 Lowering my rating from 4.99 stars to 4 because while I really enjoyed this romance, after hearing how harmful this book is to individuals with disabilities, I don t feel comfortable placing a higher rating on this book The story was great, I loved Will Louisa s relationship, but with the problems in medical information and how Will s story was primarily used for Louisa s gain, my feelings have most definitely changed a bit on this book.4.99 stars because the ending made me bitter [...]
This review contains spoilers So let s get started, shall we The first thing you should know is it s very rare that I give a book one star because I can usually find SOMETHING enjoyable about it But, that s not the case here There were absolutely no redeeming qualities in this book for me In fact, there were a total of two points and by points I mean singular lines in this book where I genuinely liked what was said The first was when Treena said, Oh, for Christ s sake, Lou For once in your life, [...]
You only get one life It s actually your duty to live it as fully as possible Going to start this review off by saying that if you don t want to have your heart torn from your chest and crushed into a tiny little pieces then don t pick up this book I kept seeing people say Now this is a book , and figured it was a lot of hype NO, NO it wasn t just a lot of hype If you follow me on than you know all this month I ve only well mainly only been reading books suggested to me from friends on here Me B [...]

Pages stained with tears Used tissues And my bruised, bleeding heart lying on the floor I don t know how long I ll survive with a huge hole in my chest I thought, briefly, that I would never feel as intensely connected to the world, to another human being, as I did at that moment I thought that I would never feel as intensely connected to a book as I did while reading Me Before You I finished it a few hours ago but I m still crying It feels like I ve shed an ocean of tears, fat, ugly droplets of [...]
4.5 Me duelen los ojos de tanto llorar.
Hey, Clark, he said Tell me something good This review contains spoilers.I decided to read this book right after watching the trailer and crying, partly because Mr Bates from Downton Abbey was there every single time he shows up tears start streaming down my face and partly because the story was so moving.But I honestly did not expect this book to impact me this emotionally.I thought Me Before You was going to be another book in the pile of books similar to John Green s The Fault In Our Stars bu [...]
LIVE BOLDLY PUSH YOURSELF DON T SETTLE RE READ ON 8TH SEPTEMBER 2013 WITH LA LIONEE ANA RITA, THANKS LADIES FOR MAKING ME RE READ ONE OF MY ALL TIME FAVES ORIGINAL REVIEW This book, holly hell this book I finished this yesterday and thought it was great but I can not express what I felt this morning when I woke up thinking about them Me Before You is real, just like life is real This is not a sappy book with silly characters that fall in love and that s it This is a book about friendship, love, [...]
I did really enjoy this but not as much as I d expected to I think too many people were telling me how much I was going to love it and how emotional it was and that kind of set me up for failure It was sad, but I wasn t moved to tears and while I really did like it, I didn t love it Update Just watched the movie trailer for the first time and I got chills Honestly I think this is one of those cases where I m going to like the movie better than the book I just had a lot of trouble connecting with [...]
I m not going to write a proper review about this book I dont want to spoil anything for you Just read it,you wont regret it.Oh my god this book was so mind blowing but mostly heartbreaking.WillBest before 19 March 2007LouLou has to work for Will and in the beginning things are very difficult for both of them Given the circumstances Will is all the time cranky, rude , vile to her because his life is miserable However, they start getting along because Lou is the only person who contradicts him an [...]
Why haven t I read this book earlier Have I been living under a rock I have actually heard about this book just a few months back, and I was deeply curious about it With a film adaptation coming soon, the book is one hot commodity I had to endure the long wait list at the library and my cheapness , but my turn did come up last week It took me a good part of the day to read this, and it took another day for me to get a hold of myself once I ve finished it I ve been crying my eyes out after I fini [...]
Rereading I just finished my re read of this book Sometimes a second trip into a book doesn t end well for me I see things that I did not pick up the first time and I end up not liking the book any.That didn t happen with this book.Because guess what I m doing I m sobbing Not crying Big ugly snot running tears.It takes a lot for a book to do this to me.There is no reason to go into what this book is about Most everyone knows or has heard by now The movie is soon to come out and the second book i [...]
It is rare to find a book that has the ability to make the reader look at life through a different lens, forcing us to re examine our values, prejudices, morals and ethics This book, is such a book Me Before You is a book that will touch your soul and may change your life.As a Registered Nurse that has dedicated my career to working with individuals with spinal cord injuries disorders, the subject matter is particularly near and dear to my heart I didn t know what this book was about when I star [...]

Final rating 5 5 stars Hey Clark , he said Tell me something good I stared out of the window at the bright blue Swiss sky and I told him a story of two people Two people who shouldn t have met, and who didn t like each other much when they did, but who found they were the only two people in the world who could possibly have understood each other Life is a wonderful thing, but then again, it can also be horrible and merciless We have been told that we are the creators of our own fates But what ha [...]
Oh goodness heartbreak I m one of those people that as soon as I hear a book is being made into a movie, I decide I should read it But honestly with this one, I have no clue why I waited so long I have heard over and over about how much others have enjoyed it and yet held off myself Lesson learned Me Before You is the story of a young girl who finds herself the caretaker of a quadriplegic man who is both charming and brash depending on the mood And yet, there s something about him that she finds [...]
SO I know that practically the whole world loves this book, and I m not trying to undermine the majority Truly, I m not I ve said it before, and I ll say it again, the biggest only downside to training yourself to read books critically for review, is that you can t turn it off I may never be able to devour a book, paying zero attention to anything but how it makes me feel, and enjoying it without any kind of expectations ever again.That probably sounds awful to a lot a people, but I don t mind I [...]
Una historia bella y conmovedora, creo que le este libro en un momento bastante adecuado, aprend muchas cosas que espero poner en practica pronto y disfrute la lectura de principio a fin.Me encant el humor negro y sarc stico de Will y la relaci n que construye con Lou y aunque se me hizo bastante predecible el final de la historia, esto no hizo que me parecer a menos conmovedor y emotivo.
I need a hug In fact, can someone just hold me for a week I think I am just gonna curl up in a ball and keep sobbing now.
This book was pretty awesome, but the ending kinda killed me
