I usually have 3 books on the go.. This is 2/3.. 😊
I've had this on my Kindle for a while, time to get it read & catch up with Louisa.. 😊
Really enjoyed the details of the journey of Lou, not just to a new city but also as a woman discovering herself and her passion.
It‘s a love story. And I love it. I liked it much better than the second volume. Of course, it‘s not free from foreseeable turns and cliche-like developments (Agnes, Sam, Margot) but I loved Lou‘s New York too much to let this mess my reading experience and entertainment. The bits of life wisdom on top made my heart melt.
Plus: My alarm clock ⏰ will ring in about three hours. 😱 Who writes an excuse note for me❓
Almost page 200.
Almost halfway through. 🤥
Okay, through with a bit more than one third.
But I like it, it‘s quick, easy and entertaining in a good way. Not as lengthy as volume two.
But *sigh*, yes, I know that there are genre-regularities to “obey”, but, you know, the plot is set in the Internet Age. So, why not use the possibilities this offers instead of artificially forcing exactly that kind of conflict every 5-year-old can guess. 🤐
Littens, I don‘t know, if it‘s worth it to be rich. (Most of the time I think, no.)
But having a personal assistant, my own personal assistant, only at my side for _me_ and me only, seems veeeery tempting, doesn‘t it❓
Or is it just me and my snobby self❓
(It reads easy. More fluent and entertaining than my last book.)
A link for my German followers. Just in case that someone finds her- or himself in similar situation to the one I am in at the moment:
Needless to say that the link offers spoilers, I think.
Also from yesterday‘s stop at the bookshop. 😇
It‘s the third volume in the “Me-before-you”-series and I wasn‘t really sure if I wanted to read it when it was announced/came out because I didn‘t like the second volume very much.
But as I saw that it is available as paper back and quite a tome it was a bit of an impulse purchase.
Now I‘m looking forward to it but I think I need to find out about the ending of the predecessor, first.
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Oh, Louisa Clark, your quirkiness & big heart are just what I needed! Admittedly, I was miffed when Moyes wrote a sequel to the thought-provoking Me Before You. I didn‘t think it was needed. Read After You & was underwhelmed. So, I wasn‘t going to read this third installment, but I‘m happy I did. In NYC for temporary work, Louisa continues her path of self discovery. She befriends several unique individuals. It‘s really a lovely story.
I hate reading a book only to realise halfway through that it is part of a series and it's like the last one 😭 Now i feel obliged to wait until i have the other books in the series and start from the very beginning how the author intended it to be! 😩
Sorry JoJo! The part of 'Still me' i read was fantastic, but i can't carry on until I've purchased and read the first two in the collection 😞
I love how honest Louisa's voice is. While I loved book one (and was so-so about book two), the events in book three felt a lot more relatable. I think every emotion Lou had in regards to relationships in this book I have also had. Nice ending to the series and definitely threw me a couple of things I didn't see coming.
My public library is having its biggest book sale of the year so my personal library shelves just gained a significant amount of weight. I was missing the 3rd book of this series and that was just wrong - problem solved for 2 bucks!

You‘ve got to love the books that have you excited to finish but sad to be done. This series is light, fun, and full of feels.
New to this, but not to reading...yes, my shelves are double stacked...no, that‘s not my only bookcase 😬 #booklover
This would make for a good book club read, I think. Louisa Clark is such a fun character, and it's nice to see her find her way in NYC. ...in contrast, the rest of the characters are a bit too one note for me, which requires more suspension of disbelief than they warranted. This is nit-picky, but there's a letter written from an American character that is written in a VERY British voice - see picture above. It kind of snapped me out of the story.
Loved this! Not as much as the first one but definitely more than the second one.
So right here is why Louisa Clark's story is one of my top favourites.
I relate to Lou's life on so many levels, her past, her personality and character.
Because in those lines she described me, i felt she was talking about me!
Whenever she talks about her feelings i felt her so personally.
That's why i took her story personally, her ups and downs in life her succes and failure everything is so special to me.
Thank you Jojo Moyes for this.
Name a better combination
And cup of tea
I‘ve been monstrously sick, but I managed to finish this #bookclub read this morning! I‘ve joined a new book club, and I‘m excited for the first meeting in a few weeks. I haven‘t read the other books in this series, so this was my introduction to Jojo Moyes. Overall, I think it was a charming book. I loved all the British slang—took me back to my London days!
Hey guys new to litsy here my first post.
Starting off the new year with this book, I've always been a fan of Jojo Moyes and her Louisa Clark trilogy, I relate to Lou's life on so many levels maybe that's why.
Not finished yet but i'm loving it so far can not put it down!
This book had so many twists and turns, some I saw coming, others I didn't, I loved every minute. Since it took place in NYC, I used it as my #happyplace in the #booked2019 challenge and also a book I meant to read in 2018 for the #popsugarchallenge
