REVIEW & GIVEAWAY…Still Me by Jojo Moyes

Hardcover, 400 pages
Expected publication: January 30th 2018 by Pamela Dorman Books

In STILL ME, Lou arrives in New York ready to start a new life, confident that she can embrace this cross-Atlantic adventure and keep her relationship with Ambulance Sam alive across several thousand miles. Before she knows what’s happening, Lou is mixing in New York high society, where she meets Joshua Ryan, a man who brings with him a whisper of her past. As Lou tries to keep the two sides of her world together, she finds herself carrying secrets—not all her own—that cause a catastrophic change in her circumstances. When matters come to a head, she has to ask herself, Who is Louisa Clark?  And how do you reconcile a heart that lives in two places?

Going back to the heart of what made Me Before You an international bestseller, STILL ME carries the same mixture of levity and weight of Moyes’s previous books while exploring a city that presents new emotional, familial, and moral challenges. Moyes is an expert at capturing a full range of emotion while never ceasing to entertain and delight readers. 

Jojo Moyes’s profile is at an all-time high with worldwide sales of Me Before You and After You at nearly seventeen million copies. Her works are available in a staggering 43 foreign languages and have sold twenty-nine million copies in total worldwide. Readers across the globe are enchanted by Lou’s story, and this newest installment brings her tale to even greater heights as she is pushed into a brand new world.

My Thoughts…

Lou is now in New York.     This is a huge step in her life.   She has moved across the ocean to start her life over.     She is making new friends and finding her way.    She is saying YES to life, per Will’s lesson.    I love how she has moved on with her life and not in a small way.    I found it interesting how someone can come to the NY and fit in so seamlessly.    She fell in with the family she was working for, walked the streets of NY, made friends, and found a way to live again.   There were a few stumbles, a few hiccups, but mostly she made the most of the opportunity she was given.    I would love to have her guts and grit to take on a world that is so unknown to her.  

Still Me is a fast, uplifting book.     I hoped for the best for Lou, I wanted her to succeed, and I needed her to finally find her happy ever after.   Would she finally get it in NY or would she need to head back to the UK? 

I loved this book and this series.    Jojo Moyes is certainly a must read author for me.   I recommend picking up your own copy right away and getting to know Louisa Clark.  

Thank you Brianna Linden from Viking/Penguin for a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
