“I hadn’t realized that music could unlock things in you, could transport you to somewhere even the composer hadn’t predicted. It left an imprint in the air around you, as if you carried its remnants with you when you went.” Jojo Moyes, Me Before You
What a surprise I got and want to share with you. Jessie over at Behind the Willows is a very active and interesting woman who writes an amazing blog about her children, her life, the books she reads, their hunting dogs, and then some. When I get time for blog visiting, Jessie always delights with her entertaining way of writing with her frank humour. But she surprised my boots off when she wrote about ME! No kidding, go check it out. She has a short video in that post and that’s Jessie playing in the video. Thanks bunches Jessie!
“You only get one life. It’s actually your duty to live it as fully as possible.”
“Push yourself. Don’t Settle. Just live well. Just LIVE.” — both quotes JoJo Moyes from Me Before You.
Me Before You by JoJo Moyes: Right from the beginning, I was loving this novel and didn’t want to put it down.
On my Goodreads account I gave it 5 stars out of 5. I absolutely loved this novel and would give it more stars if I could. The characters, especially Lou, were irresistible. The story is funny, sad without being maudlin (oh well, maybe some of us might get a bid maudlin near the end), insightful, thought-provoking, and not a boring moment to be had. I loved this book, period.
Definitely recommended — and great for book clubs (although I did not read this for book club). And it’s with this novel in mind I leave my final thoughts.
Until next Monday dear friends and readers, try something outside your comfort zone, live your week fully, leave an imprint.
PS: You all need to know how much I value your comments — they really are the best bits for me. And I appreciate the time you take to pop in here and then take even more time to leave me a note. You’re the best.
