General Update

Hello everyone. I feel bad not being on for a while not that anyone probably noticed. I still feel bad though. I’ve been busy with real life. Real life is so dull. Anyways, I few things I’m going to try to publish today. I read and finished After You, the sequel to Me Before You by Jojo Moyes. So expect a review on that. I started reading Glass Sword, the sequel to Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard. While I’m not finished with that I do want to rant about it so look forward to that. And to leave off another hand made bookmark. This one is for my coworker. Sorry for my questionable camera. I’ll eventually get an actual camera that isn’t my phone.

Book Review – Me Before You

This book destroyed me and it was so amazing I plan on reading the sequel. This book is a very unconventional love story between a quadriplegic and his newly hired caregiver. All I can say about the synopsis is go watch the movie trailer. Normally this isn’t something I would read but the trailer drew me in. The characters are so real and human that you can’t help but to be drawn into all their happiness and triumphs and sorrows and failures. Louisa Clark is unexpectedly given a job caring for a man paralyzed from the neck down. He’s cold to her and she avoids him as much as possible until she starts treating him like he’s normal by calling him an “arse.” This book was a heartbreaking tearjerker and I highly recommend it to anyone with any interest in temporary fiction. And just be warned there is a sequel that you are definitely going to read after you finish the first book. After You. Don’t make the mistake I made and not have the money for it. This book was beautifully written with wonderfully human characters with all their faults. 5 stars definitely.

When You Finish A Really Great Book and Are Too Broke For the Sequel

I think the title speaks for itself for this post. I recently saw a movie preview for a book-turned-movie and it looked really interesting so I decided to get the book. Me Before You by Jojo Moyes. This book is a special kind of heart breaking and it was beautiful. Had me in tears and I loved it. (I’ll review it in another post.) Anyways, after I finished it I found out there was a sequel and I really want it but I am definitely too broke for it. I have no choice but to wait for Friday when I get paid. 😥 I had a chance to read the first 20 some pages of it at the bookstore before my friend and I went to see Deadpool and those first 20 pages were beautiful and I can’t get it off my mind. I go to read something else and as soon as I put that something else down my mind goes to After You, the sequel. I’m in deep…
