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 ...more
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. ...more
Firstly 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 egocentri ...more
So it was really against my instinct and better judgement that I began readin ...more
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 w ...more
Totally sobbed at the end...thinking about filming a review because I have a lot to say about this book.
Very well done, heartbreakingly so
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 opinio ...more
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 sh ...more
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 ho ...more
“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 goodreads than you know all this month I've only (well mainly only) been reading books suggested to me from
Before you start this book... be prepared to cry. You will cry happy tears and sad tears. You will smile, laugh, be devastated, ugly cry, and if your like me- you will love the journey this book took you on.
This is a story of two people who meet each other by chance, and change each others lives forever.
Will used to be active. H ...more
“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 ...more
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 O ...more
LIVE BOLDLY. PUSH YOURSELF. DON'T SETTLE.

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 ...more
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 connectin ...more
Oh my god this book was so mind blowing but mostly heartbreaking.
Best before : 19 March 2007
Lou 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 contradict ...more
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 anymore.
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 s ...more
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 ...more
“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."

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 ...more

Me encantó el humor negro y sarcástico de Will y la relación que construye con Lou y aunque se me hizo bastante predecible el final de la historia, esto no hizo que me parecería menos conmovedor y emotivo.
