be impressive enough to rival the thought provoking circumstances or raw emotion Louisa and Will s story evoked from the masses At this point, I think not The takeaway here some things should be left to stand on their own.Why Jojo Moyes felt compelled to take a story as emotionally charged as Me Before You and drag it out to a trilogy, I ll never understand Was it a burning desire on her part to continue Louisa s story that led to After You book 2 orof an opportunity to exploit the success of Me Before You Is it possible Still Me book 3 was viewed as a chance to right all of the squandered opportunities we suffered through in After You or again,of a sales play Either way, I won t deny, this third installment was a muchenjoyable read than the prior Although, arguably, unnecessary in the grand scheme of things Regardless of the fact that Me Before You is a book I ve recommendedthan any other, I hesitated to commit to Still Me and for good reason Within the 370 pages of After You, Jojo Moyes created a scenario that worked against it s predecessor, tainting the memory of one of the most pivotal and adored characters The crutch she rested on felt cheap, overused and left me second guessing my feelings for the original story Let me tell you, that s a wretched place to be Not to mention, Lou s storyline failed to advance enough to even justify the sequel, making After You feel like littlethan a throwaway Third time book is a charm Well, sort of This isin line with what I initially envisioned for a continuation of Lou s story, but it s far from perfect With this final installment let s hope , Jojo Moyes captures that version of Lou readers initially fell for the quirky clothes horse who stood out in a crowd for simply being herself and delivers a journey of self discovery.This story lacks a bit in the emotional depth department, specifically with regards to the relationships and people Lou surrounds herself with, but it was entertaining enough to keep me engaged What I didn t like a few of the storylines felt unresolved Agnes , quite a few characters felt inconsistent Josh, Sam and Mrs De Witt and the messages along the way were a bit muddled If you re even remotely considering this one, I would say, go for it Even if for nothing other than the times Lou reminisces about Will The snippets of Will throughout letters written to his mother from his own time in New York and his anecdotes about life that pop up when Lou needs them most acted as a salve of sorts, healing some of my past disappointments and reigniting those feelings I experienced with their unforgettable beginning.Regardless of the fact that this go round with Lou was a muchpositive experience than the last, I feel strongly that this should be the final goodbye to the eccentric Londoner New Yorker Let s just hope Jojo Moyes and her publisher agree Hello again, Louisa Clark NEW YORK, NEW YORK Books teach you empathy I enjoyed a lot reading this book, since after three novels counting this one , Louisa Clark, is already a literary character that it s always a wonderful experience to read about.Louisa Clark goes to her next phase in her life, this time leaving

NEW YORK, NEW YORK Books teach you empathy I enjoyed a lot reading this book, since after three novels counting this one , Louisa Clark, is already a literary character that it s always a wonderful experience to read about.Louisa Clark goes to her next phase in her life, this time leaving her native England to go to work at New York She has to leave her family, her friends and her boyfriend, Ambulance Sam, only Nathan is with her, since it was him who helped her to get the job as personal assistant of the new wife of a very important and rich man, living at the famous Fifth Avenue, but you will get to know several places around the city that never sleeps, becoming another resident there as well as Lou.Jojo s narrative which turn into the very voice and thoughts of Louisa, take us to New York in a way that you can watch each building, you can feel each street, you can taste each weather.Something that I love about Jojo Moyes books at least Louisa Clark s saga that you learn empathy as the chosen quote clearly indicates , since you never has to rush to conclusions about the people that you meet, the same as in the first book and the second one too, characters that maybe get your nerves, you need to be patient, since you never know how relevant an unexpected character can be for the fate of Louisa Clark, the same as our own lives.You have to be true to yourself, don t look for doing bad things on purpose to others, never look for revenge, keep your soul and heart clean, and don t look for unnecesary enemies, since life will give you enough unavoidable foes, for helping to add others to the list, even since life doesn t help you giving people white hats or black hats , life isn t like an old western movie where isn t that hard to know who is good or bad out there.There are people that it s easy to know that can be a valuable friendship for you, but others won t be so easy to recognize be cautious, think before talk, and always do what you think is right There s always something Lou keeps trying her best to do her tasks in the best possible way, and certainly she will put to test when duty and righteousness, will become one single mess, not making easy to know how to act at certain times.Also, Lou will have to be strong about her own personality and the little things that made her like what truly is and don t betray herself Only Louisa Clark can be Louisa Clark and the literary world would be a sad place without her In the same way, only you can be you in our world, so don t make changes in your very foundation of what makes you, you.Moreover, beside to learn about the new life of Lou in New York, you ll be able to learn about the Clark family and the Traynors too After three books counting this one , they re like part of our own family too, since it has been quite a journey since we meet for the first time to Lou when she was fired from the coffee shop, never imagining all the stuff that she ll do from then on and all the incredible people that will get into Lou s life.For better or worse, always modeling into unexpected levels the life of our Lou Your life it s never quite, is it, loveThank you, Jojo, for giving us once again Lou and being able to walk side by side with her for a third time I think at some point, dear, you re going to have to work out who Louisa Clark is I don t think there needed to be a trilogy I really don t Let me start by saying I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED Me Before you It literally blew me away I read it twice and have seen the movie three times I think it is Moyes Swan song It doesn t get any better than that which is why the two books which followed could not live up to their predecessor.In this book we see our much loved Louisa Clarke moving to New Yor I think at some point, dear, you re going to have to work out who Louisa Clark is I don t think there needed to be a trilogy I really don t Let me start by saying I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED Me Before you It literally blew me away I read it twice and have seen the movie three times I think it is Moyes Swan song It doesn t get any better than that which is why the two books which followed could not live up to their predecessor.In this book we see our much loved Louisa Clarke moving to New York City to be the assistant to a wealthy young socialite A socialite who is not much liked by others in her social circles as her husband was once married to their friend A friend he divorced to marry his much younger massage therapist Before she is even over her jet lag, Louisa is running in central park, shopping and attending fancy social events She is thrown into a glamorous life one that is much different from the life she lived in England with her paramedic boyfriend, Sam.While out and about she meets a man named Josh Ryan who bears a striking resemblance to someone from her past They form a friendship while Louisa pines for Sam and throws herself into the NYC high society social circle Louisa continues to be quirky and finds herself in various situations both comedic and sad There will be misunderstandings, new friends, broken hearts, miscommunication, deceit and mayhem.In this book, Louisa takes Will s advice from Me Before you You only get one life It s actually your duty to live it as fully as possible She does take chances and tries to be her own person but sadly, it didn t really pay off for me in this book It was a solid 3 star book for me I hoped it would be better I can t fault he writing, the writing is good but the story lagged in places for me Again, I think she should have left well enough alone Good not great Thank you to Penguin Group Viking and NetGalley who provided me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.Seeof my reviews at www.openbookpost.com WHY

you re going to have to work out who Louisa Clark really isI loved that part, especially It was nice seeing her embracing her real identity and staying true to herself What s evenexciting was seeing Sam stands by her side all this time, I was obsessed with the letters Overall, I think this book was really a nice addition and it makes up for the second book, I was hooked from the start and it gave Lou s story a nice closure and the happy ending she totally DESERVES We who travelled far from home would always have our hearts in two places I was so pleasantly surprised by this one I didn t think

ever lasts with Lou and suddenly she finds her entire world thrown upside down Throw in the long distance dramas with Sam and I was hooked The parts with Sam really got to me, as I know first hand how god awful distance can be for a relationship, and I desperately wanted things to work out for themFor the first time since I had arrived in America I had an almost physical sense of being in the wrong place, as if I were being tugged by invisible cords to somewhere a million miles away Overall I loved all the new characters we are introduced to, including the doorman and his family, the 2 girls who run the vintage clothes store and the elderly neighbour with her mental dog.I love Lou as a character, she is so ridiculously relatable and I see parts of myself in her It was wonderful to see her

Moyes for bringing Louisa back to us. .Epub ♕ Still Me ⚓ From theNew York Times bestselling author Jojo Moyes, a new book featuring her iconic heroine of Me Before You and After You, Louisa ClarkLouisa Clark arrives in New York ready to start a new life, confident that she can embrace this new adventure and keep her relationship with Ambulance Sam alive across several thousand miles She steps into the world of the superrich, working for Leonard Gopnik and his much younger second wife, Agnes Lou is determined to get the most out of the experience and throws herself into her new job and New York life As she begins to mix in New York high society, Lou meets Joshua Ryan, a man who brings with him a whisper of her past Before long, Lou finds herself torn between Fifth Avenue where she works and the treasure filled vintage clothing store where she actually feels at home And when matters come to a head, she has to ask herself Who is Louisa Clark And how do you find the courage to follow your heart wherever that may lead Funny, romantic, and poignant, Still Me follows Lou as she navigates how to stay true to herself, while pushing to live boldly in her brave new world Few people can leave me emotionally jumbled quite like Jojo Moyes can The first book of hers I read, Me Before You , literally had me ugly crying, and I ll admit a healthy sob or two while reading its sequel, After You Even one of Moyes standalone books, The Girl You Left Behind , left me puffy eyed.Now Louisa Clark returns in a third book, Still Me While not as sob inducing as the first two, Moyes still knows how to play my feelings like a piano, and it was wonderful to be bac Few people can leave me emotionally jumbled quite like Jojo Moyes can The first book of hers I read, Me Before You , literally had me ugly crying, and I ll admit a healthy sob or two while reading its sequel, After You Even one of Moyes standalone books, The Girl You Left Behind , left me puffy eyed.Now Louisa Clark returns in a third book, Still Me While not as sob inducing as the first two, Moyes still knows how to play my feelings like a piano, and it was wonderful to be back with these characters I ve come to know over the last few years.Lou once promised someone special to her that she d live boldly But after rebuilding her life following crushing grief, she s finally gotten the courage to do just that, accepting a job working for an ultra rich family in New York City She leaves her family and her boyfriend behind and heads to America, ready to say yes to everything life has to offer her You re going to feel uncomfortable in your new world for a bit It always does feel strange to be knocked out of your comfort zone Working as the assistant to Agnes Gopnik, the much younger second wife of a tremendously wealthy financier and philanthropist, Louisa gets to see first hand that you can have everything you ve dreamed of and yet still be crushingly unhappy Agnes loathes being on public display, judged by the gossipy, vindictive friends of her husband s first wife, yet she is forced to travel in the same social circles She knows her stepdaughter hates her, knows their housekeeper likes nothingthan to torment her Yet she finds a kindred spirit in Louisa, in that they re both struggling to be present in two very different worlds You always have one foot in two places You can never be truly happy because, from the moment you leave, you are two selves, and wherever you are one half of you is always calling to the other This is our price, Louisa This is the cost of who we are It isn t easy juggling her responsibilities with thinking about her boyfriend and her family back home, all of whom seem to have made great strides in their lives since she s been gone Louisa likes being in the middle of fancy New York society but sees how it could feel so lonely, and sometimes is torn between the glitz and glamour, and thecomforting security she feels at an endangered library in Washington Heights, or a vintage clothing store which helps feed her unique fashion sense.When Louisa finds herself in an untenable position because of secrets that have been shared with her, she is unsure where to turn, a situation not helped by her anxieties over her foundering relationship with her boyfriend at home It takes meeting two people an elderly woman who knows all about doing it your own way no matter the cost, and a wealthy young man who reminds her of someone she misses dearly to show her the choices she needs to make, and the importance of remaining true to who you are The key was making sure that anyone you allowed to walk beside you didn t get to decide which you were, and pin you down like a butterfly in a case The key was to know that you could always somehow find a way to reinvent yourself again Still Me was really enjoyable and definitely poignant in places It s a powerful meditation on being true to yourself, no matter how many people want you to do otherwise, and the struggles doing so may cause It s also a story about the importance of saying what you think, of expressing how you feel which these characters were definitely not good at , or else what occurs around you might not be what you wanted.There aren t a lot of surprises in this book there were many times when something happened and I thought to myself, Ah, so this will happen at some point, and I wasn t ever wrong But that didn t bother me as much as it might with other books, because these characters are so engaging, and Moyes storytelling just draws you in and feels comfortable and familiar You could read this book without reading the first two, but you have no idea what you re missing, particularly with Me Before You Still Me didn t quite blow me away, but I devoured the book anyway Louisa is just one of those characters you root for even as she s making missteps, and it s so good to spendtime with her and her family again This is a series that keeps on giving the feels, that is See all of my reviews at itseithersadnessoreuphoria.blogspot.com, or check out my list of the best books I read in 2017 at I knew this was the way to madness yet I couldn t stop myself This seemed to be the overall motto of the third and last book in this series and I still don t know if I liked it or not My feelings for Still Me are rather mixed, yet I still found myself enjoying it somehow Which is probably a great testimony of Jojo Moyes easy writing style and the way she manages to capture her audience Still, for me it s also proof of the fact that a book can t only live from its interesting characters anI knew this was the way to madness yet I couldn t stop myself This seemed to be the overall motto of the third and last book in this series and I still don t know if I liked it or not My feelings for Still Me are rather mixed, yet I still found myself enjoying it somehow Which is probably a great testimony of Jojo Moyes easy writing style and the way she manages to capture her audience Still, for me it s also proof of the fact that a book can t only live from its interesting characters and the authors writing skills The idea of Lou going to New York and working for the Gopniks sounded intriguing and even though she had to leave her new boyfriend in London I could still understand why she decided to do it This was something she needed to do in order to find herself and their relationship was so fresh that she was allowed to be a little selfish I mean it was only for a year and Sam couldn t expect her to give up her entire life They barely knew each other and life altering decisions shouldn t be made hastily, let alone for someone you only just started to dateSo I did what every girl does when she s far from home and a little sad I ate half a packet of chocolate Digestives and called my mother Of course a long distance relationship is a challenge and not as easy as it seems I could relate to that part so much because I used to have long distance relationships when I was younger, the last one of them actually turning out be my husband lol Anyway, this part of the book was something familiar and something I understood, the rest of the book Well, let s say it kind of caught me off guard The Gopniks were a family I couldn t connect to and their life was a mystery to me I mean it was obvious that Agnes and Mr Gopnik loved each other, yet they still didn t give each other an inch when it came to certain topics Yes, Agnes felt isolated and the working hours of her husband certainly didn t help, but she sometimes acted like a spoiled child and that clearly didn t make their situation any better Neither did Mr Gopniks daughter who used every single moment she spent in her father s company in order to make Agnes s life evenmiserable So whilst I could comprehend Agnes s actions I still think that she should have approached her troubles differently A WHOLE LOT DIFFERENTLY I mean who cares about what those women thought about her If she felt inappropriately dressed for the events she had to attend, why the hell didn t she recruit a stylist Money obviously wasn t a problem and if you have a personal hair dresser, coach and assistant already I m sure it s not that hard to get a proper stylist as well She would have automatically feltconfident and comfortable and that would have had an effect on the people around her as well Also sometimes you just have to bite the bullet and hold your head high Well, at least that s what I would have done, along with giving them my best impression of the finger P Just sayingYou mustn t worry about me All this nonsense about women having it all We never could and we never shall Women always have to make the difficult choices But there is a great consolation in simply doing something you love So much to the Gopniks Anyway, I really liked Lou s other friends in New York and Ashok as well as his wife Meena were the best Nathan was still an amazing friend and even grumpy Ilaria kind of grew on me lol The best surprise was Margot though and I really started to like that old hag Still, the sudden change at about 50% of the book was something I just couldn t wrap my head around and all the problems that arose with it only left me with evenquestion marks Which brings me right to the part I didn t like and which caused me to give this book only three stars I wanted this book to bring me some closure I wanted Lou to get her HEA I didn t even care if it s with Sam or with a new guy all I wanted for her was to be stupidly and madly in love and most importantly happy and I wanted no new topics to be opened but old ones to be closed And I didn t get any of those things which makes me feel all sorts of bitter and salty lol Okay, we could argue about the HEA here but for me that ending just isn t satisfying I ve a love hate relationships with cliffhangers but what I really can t stand are open endings and this ending even though no real open ending still falls into that category for me And before I talk evenin riddles here I ll just make a spoiler tag and write it all off my chest Be prepared to get an uncensored and pretty ranty opinion here.Lou s love life view spoilerI think I needed a distraction from the loss of my sister I built a house so I didn t have to think I built a house because I needed to believe in the future But now it s done and I look around these empty rooms, I feel nothing Maybe some pride that I actually finished the job but apart from that Nothing at all I MEAN WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK I can t accept this happy ending because for me it s no happy ending Is it realistic, yes it is, but after everything Lou went through I really wanted her to be all smiley and happy I wanted her to be swept away by love and to grin stupidly but obviously nothing of that happened Instead of being madly and stupidly in love she and Sam got back together and this after everything he did Which was pretty rotten if you ask me He always claimed there was nothing between Katie and him and yet he cheated on Lou when the opportunity arose Seriously Are you kidding me You were apart for what Three months and you couldn t wait for your girlfriend I hate to break this to you but if you missed the physical part of your relationship there is always your hand, buddy Also they saw each other twice in those 3 months which isoften than some other people that have long distance relationships ever get Three months and he couldn t even try to keep tiny Sam in his pants ADFLKASDFKLASDJFADLKSFJASDLKFJASDLKFJASDJL I would have been so mad if I d have been Lou and I m not sure I would have been able to forgive him for it Alone the fact that he made her think that she s just a jealous fury even though her doubt was justified Nope, No, Noho I would have rather preferred for Lou to meet another man instead of trying it with Sam again But okay, it was Jojo s decision and I ve to accept that Joshua William Ryan the Third He looked like Will, he talked like Will and he seemed to work in the same job as him It s like Jojo Moyes wanted us to give Lou a second chance at Will but then decided against it, because he turned out to be completely different than Will in the end And that s bullshit Either you give our girl her second chance with a guy like Will fate or you don t Why even bring him into this book if she was bound to leave him again Also I don t buy that he was totally different than Will That might sound harsh now but I m pretty sure Will was a lot like Josh before he had his accident He even said as much when they spoke about his former life in Me After You He was a bon viveur and he also kind of defined his life through his job The only difference between Will and Josh was that Will had his accident and started to see theimportant things of life He began to value the small things and the overall picture instead of certain points So in my opinion in dating Josh, Lou actually dated Will before she got to know him It s only my opinion though and you re allowed to disagree with me I just think that Will was perfect for Lou because he changed after his accident and therefore didn t have a lot in common with the person he used to be before it hide spoiler The Gopniks view spoilerMr Gopnik, I don t want your money If I d wanted to sue you or or make money from your secrets I would have done it weeks ago, when I was left without a job or anywhere to live You ve misjudged me now as you misjudged me back then And I d like to leave now I can t believe we didn t get any closure to this story Yes, Mr Gopnik found out about Agnes daughter and he spoke with Lou, but damn that s not enough For the way they treated her he should have begged on his knees for her forgiveness And Lou Lou must be a saint because if they would have treated me like that I would have given him a piece of my mind It s good that she managed to make the deal for the library but seriously How they treated her was horrible and there are so many things that were left open For instance Agnes s affair with the artist What happened with that Did Mr Gopnik ever find out about it And why the hell didn t Agnes try to make amends All the while she told Lou that she s her best friend and then she betrayed her in the worst way possible and didn t even apologize for it I mean Lou covered for her she was jobless, disgraced and homeless because of the secret she kept for HER And she didn t even apologize when it all came out WTF That s so not okay What a spineless and unprincipled person It wouldn t have killed her to say sorry If I would have been Lou I would have been so damn angry GRRRR Lou is a saint I have no other explanation hide spoiler Mrs De Witt view spoiler Margot was such a difficult person but ultimately she had her heart in the right place and she really grew on me It was so sad that she had cancer and even with this storyline I couldn t help but feel left hanging Sure, Lou continued to have contact with her but urgh I would have liked them to be friends until the end sighs That her family took her home was all nice and good but poor Lou was left alone once again And that made me sad somehow Also I feel like someone should have confronted Margot and called her out on the way she treated people at the beginning of the book And this never happened so urgh hide spoiler Treena view spoilerAll this being said, even I know what all that matters in the long run is that these two girls of mine are happy And if you make her happy, Eddie, like Sam makes our Lou happy, then good on you I m very glad to know you I really didn t see that one coming but OMG I was so happy for her It might have been a late coming out but better late than never and Eddie was soo good for her She made her happy and that s the most important thing Even Lou s dad who s really conservative could see and accept that so I m really glad that Treena and Eddie met Plus YAY finally an f f couple in Jojo Moyes books XD hide spoilerI think about your sister a lot I think about Will too When people we love die young it s a nudge, reminding us that we shouldn t take any of it for granted, that we have a duty to make the most of what we have I feel like I finally get that Conclusion This was an enjoyable book and there is no denying that it kept me reading I basically devoured this in a few days, yet I still feel so very conflicted about it all When I went into this book I wanted closure and I didn t get it because Still Me somehow managed to leave me with evenquestions than I had before I wish I could say that to finish this series made me happy but I feel like Jojo Moyes let me down Maybe it were my high expectations, who knows All I know is that this gets 3 stars from me because there were just too many issues I couldn t overlook This said maybe the book just wasn t for me I guess we ll never know XDMhmm I really don t know if I liked this or not lol It was enjoyable to read and I kind of devoured it in a few days, yet at the same time it wasn t really what I expected wanted And even though this is the ending there are still so many things I want no scratch that, there are still so many things I NEED to be answered I think I wantedclosure Well, this is going to be a tough one to rate and review RTC soon, let s find out in which direction this will go XDI think it s about time to tackle the last book of this series I didn t read a decent romance for quite a while and since I already know Lou and want a happy ending I m finally going to read this Even though we all know that the perfect ending would have been with Will at her side Anyway I don t want to return this to the library once again When this curfew is over I will give this book back read lol I m kind of worried where this is going to head though, but I ll be open minded and see what Jojo has in store for me XD This has to be good, right I am a Louisa Clark fan I have enjoyed all three books in this series and I wish Louisa was a personal friend of mine Following her ups and downs and all the things she learns along the way is a real treat Each book she brings something along from the previous book s , but each book also stands on its own.I will say that I think I enjoyed this onethan After You Something about the story made it feellike a direct sequel to Me Before You Not that I was hoping it would be or that be I am a Louisa Clark fan I have enjoyed all three books in this series and I wish Louisa was a personal friend of mine Following her ups and downs and all the things she learns along the

story made it feellike a direct sequel to Me Before You Not that I was hoping it would be or that being like the first makes it better It was just nice to return to a story that felt like what I remembered from the first.For sequels, the question is often asked do I need to read the previous books I think that this one offers enough background from the earlier books and doesn t lean too much on their content so that you could read this without the others if you really wanted to But, I think that it is worth giving the whole series a go.If you are into slightly cheesy tear jerkers that warm your soul and tug the heart strings, acquaint yourself with Louisa Clark I gaurantee you won t regret it
