    I'm so torn about whether or not to read Me Before You–It's on my to-read list, but I know it's just going to leave me in BUCKETS of tears!

    I so wish I could read Me Before You for the first time again- so good! I've been in a huge reading rut and feel like everything I've read has been so iffy/ I just can't get into it.

    I actually have no idea what Me Before You is about even with the movie out or coming out but I think I need to read it pretty soon

    I am literally the only person I know who hated Me Before You, hahahah. BUT that other book sounds super interesting! I'm excited to pick it up!

    Read my comment below Britt. I hated the ending so much that I just can't recommend this book to others! Haha.

    I saw the movie, Me Before You and now I want to read the book. It was so heartbreaking and I loved the characters. I can't wait to read it… thanks for suggesting it! I'll also look into The Girl You Lost.

    I just finished Me Before You a few days ago. I boycotted it because I am like that. If something is super popular it turns me off, lol! I needed a new audio book though and it was sitting there staring at me so I figured what the hell. I am really glad I did though and I am now finishing up After You which is also good.

    I'm so glad that you loved Me Before You – definitely one of my favorite books that I've read this year and probably ever. The story has still stuck with me months later.

    Your description of emotions while reading/after reading Me Before You is completely accurate. I finished it on a plane while the sun setting out my window and I just set there and tried to silently cry—ha!

    I absolutely adored Me Before You and I even enjoyed After You. I will have to try the other book you read, I do like a good mystery from time to time!

    We do have a very similar taste in books. šŸ™‚ The Girl You Lost is so crazy and disturbing but such a good read! I haven't read Me Before You because someone accidentally spoiled it for me, so I'm not sure if I'll feel those same emotions everyone else did now that I know the ending. šŸ™

    Neither of these sound like my cup of tea, but they both sound really good! I'm glad you enjoyed them!

    Am I the only person on the planet who will not recommend Me Before You to others? I enjoyed the book, but hated the ending. Hated it. The hashtag for the movie is #liveboldly and I don't think that ending aligns. Ugh. I did love the characters though. But I love you and always enjoy your recommendations! I'm reading The Love Song of Queenie Hennessey (A follow up book to the Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry, which is a great one if you haven't read that! ). I am loving it so far.

    I really want to read Me Before You!! Right now I'm reading "A Tree Grows in Brooklyn" which I've heard a lot of good things about.

    I love how two books a month is slow for you…haha. I'm the slowest reader! I've heard so many great things about Me Before You and am waiting for it to become available at my library.

    I cried my eyes out reading Me Before You. I can't bring myself to see the movie after knowing how it ends. I just finished 'What She Knew' and that is a great mystery, but an emotional roller coaster as well.

    Me Before You is on my to read list and I have managed to avoid any spoilers too! I need to get on it soon though!

    I've heard great things about Me before you! I haven't been reading at all the last few months likeI thought I would be during summer time. Boo!

    I have Me Before You on my list to read sometime soon, and I'll definitely make sure to have a box of tissues ready for crying!

    I just finished Me Before You and I cried too. I predicted the end, but it was such a great book. I can't wait to read the sequel. Now I want to read the Girl You Lost. You have me intrigued.

    Yay I love a good review šŸ™‚ Thanks for not spoiling Me Before You. I also know nothing about it other than that it's sad. I want to read it too!

    I just finished Three Wishes by Liane Moriarty and it was SO GOOD (as are all her books).

    I read Me Before You right before the movie came out and was lucky enough not to have it spoiled or even know what the plot was about. It's a really interesting book. I wondered if places like the place Will goes to in Switzerland or the place they went to vacation to actually exist. Lou was such a great character.

    Are you going to see the movie Me Before You? I'm waiting it to come to DVD so I can cry loudly on my own couch when I watch it šŸ™‚

    i loved me before you šŸ™‚ i picked it up before it got too huge and i didn't really know the subject matter until about halfway through and then i remembered reading the synopsis months ago. so good. i have the other one on my list!

    I actually had a lot of issues with Me Before You, but I really want to see the movie. I'm wondering if I'll have less issues with the movie and be able to enjoy the story more. I love the other books by Jojo Moyes that I read, though, including the sequel to this one. šŸ™‚

    That thriller sounds amazing. I am putting it at the top of my TBR.
