They conversations below are not exactly spoilers, but… you know… a little too much for those wanting to go in blind. 😉

Amy: Me Before You…it is SO worth the heartache. It’s a beautiful heartache…. I swear, the movie Me Before You made me love Emilia Clarke even more than I already did. And my Sam Claflin crush just deepened all the more…
R: I finally saw Me Before You today and I honestly think reading it beforehand may have saved my life. My poor daughter on the other hand had no clue. I’ve never heard gasping sobs quite like that come out of a person in public. The whole place was staring at us. I rubbed my hand over her back to soothe her, but let’s face it, I was really just making it known that the crying wasn’t coming from me.
Northernstar: I just finished Still Me by Jojo Moyes, the conclusion to the me before you series. The second book left me unsatisfied and I was chopping at the bit to get to this one. It did not disappoint. This book continues with the self discovery of Louisa Clark as she moves to New York City. I loved the characters in the book – my favoirite was Dean Martin. Although I would have liked an epilogue it was a wonderful read.
About book #1:
They had nothing in common until love gave them everything to lose . . .
Louisa Clark is an ordinary girl living an exceedingly ordinary life—steady boyfriend, close family—who has barely been farther afield than their tiny village. She takes a badly needed job working for ex–Master of the Universe Will Traynor, who is wheelchair bound after an accident. Will has always lived a huge life—big deals, extreme sports, worldwide travel—and now he’s pretty sure he cannot live the way he is.
Will is acerbic, moody, bossy—but Lou refuses to treat him with kid gloves, and soon his happiness means more to her than she expected. When she learns that Will has shocking plans of his own, she sets out to show him that life is still worth living.
