Book Review: After You by Jojo Moyes

Tuesday, 4 April 2017

Another book review, I am a bit slow on getting this up - this was my second read of the year and I'm now on my fourth - I've kept up with the 'book a month' thing really well so far! Now I did feel like a shame to the reading community when I read this, as it is the sequel to Me Before You which I haven't actually read, I've only seen the film instead (woops). I loved the film though so definitely need to pick up the book, even if I do know the ending!

After you looks at Louisa's life after Will. I know I like my thrillers but I was really looking forward to a slightly lighter read and I found this brilliant. A bit slow to start but by the end it had me hooked, wishing for Lou to focus on herself for once. It takes you through her bumpy journey of learning a new way of life without Will, and allowing herself to meet someone new, with plenty of drama chucked in for good measure.

I definitely would recommend this for a read, especially if like me, you were left teary eyed after the film or last book, it's nice to have a happy ending!

  1. I absolutely love Jojo Moyes, Me before you is such a beautiful story! I need to read After you as well! Thanks for sharing! Great post!



  2. I'll have to give this a read as it sounds great! I haven't seen the film before though but if I enjoy the book I might do! X


  3. I read the Paris for One by her and it was quite good! Think I need to read this series :)

  4. I also haven't read the book, only watched the movie, but instantly felt in love with Luisa's honest character. I didn't know there's sequal to the story and defenitly want to know what it's about, but I'll try starting with the first book.

    Thx for the info.




  5. Oh god I was DEFINITELY left teary eyed after the film - I watched it with a boy I kind of fancied at the time and I was like DON'T CRY DON'T CRY DON'T CRY but it was just so hard not to eeeek !

  6. I've not read or seen me before you, I'm kinda scared because I think I'll just cry the entire way through haha!
