*I did not receive anything in exchange for this review. I just read it with my book club and wanted to share.*
I’ve been going to a book club for a couple months now and really love it! It gets me out of my comfort zone with books and actually forces me to read since I’m on a timeline to finish a book. I have a hard time buying books or checking out books from the library, and letting them pile up into an unmanageable stack of to-reads! Last month we read Me Before You by JoJo Moyes.
I don’t know why I do this, but when I’ve had a rough day or I’m feeling lazy, I will watch a ton of TV. It’s completely illogical because I never feel more refreshed after a day, afternoon or weekend of binge watching. This book is written so well that you really relate to the characters. Their personalities and behavior is completely believable.
Feeling kinda blah and bored tonight. Believe it or not, an hour spent on facebook did NOT change that.

One Sunday night I was feeling bummed and lonely. I had watched several episodes of How I Met Your Mother on Amazon Prime through my Roku. Finally I put on real pants and walked across the street to my favorite bar with a dying iPhone and my kindle. It was the best decision I made that weekend. That night is when I got totally hooked on the book and couldn’t put it down. I hung out for two hours drinking wine (my favorite bar tender kept walking by and sneaking more wine into my cup), eating mashed potatoes (second best decision that weekend) and reading Me Before You.
I really want mashed potatoes. But thought ordering a side for $4 would make me look really weird at this bar. So I ordered a meal w/ MPs.

I heard tons of people rave about The Fault in Our Stars. When I read it I did really enjoy the book, but I didn’t get the hype. Me Before You reminded me of TFIOS, but in this book I really did love the characters and bawl my eyes out. If you liked that book, I think you’ll love Me Before You. Check it out.
Have you read Me Before You? What did you think?
