Book Review: Me Before You by Jojo Moyes

Let me find a good book to read. A love story? Well, it was one of the genres which I have stopped reading since long as it doesn’t interest me anymore. Recently, I have cultivated the habit and interest to read the murder mysteries, suspense, something which contains historical values, etc. But a love story, ugh, it is so clichéd these days that it tells nothing other than two people dancing in the rain, or just having sex on the table while betraying their partners whom they were never in love with and all that bullshit. They are so made up that I could not connect myself with.

Then I got to know one book by Jojo Moyes which was an unconventional love story. A love story of two different people who help them to change the way they see the world in the span of six months.

An embittered quadriplegic handsome man who can’t really do anything but surely has the power to make the girl dream bigger and let her explore different horizons of life which she’s never felt in 26 years of her life.

Me Before You by Jojo Moyes- A book which is full of emotions, betrayal, self-realization, unconditional love, guilt, and everything a human can feel in himself.

It is a book that will tear your heart in front of you and you will sob while holding your heart in your hands.

Thanks to Pranjali for gifting me this amazing book which I was not expecting. It is always good when your loved ones give you something which becomes so close to your heart. I am in love with.. you know further… haha! 😉


5 stars (A must read. MUST)
You will never regret after reading this book. But you’ll surely regret if you don’t.

Fun Fact:

This is the shortest time I have completed any book ever since I have started working. It only took me 4 nights to finish this 500 pages book. It was a month end, work (precisely overwork), pressure, longer work hours, and there could have been many reasons for me to come home late and sleep. But I chose not to because my discipline and consistency which defines me, which defines SumitOfficial’s writing and blog. 🙂


There is a trilogy of this Me series which includes:

1) Me Before You

2) After You

3) Still Me

I’m gonna get the second book tomorrow and I’ll surely review that one as soon as I complete that. Let me know your views in the comment box, if you’ve already read this book.

Thanks for reading! Have a good day/night. 🙂

  1. I read this post way back but did not find time to comment.
    This book seems pretty interesting.
    I wonder how many books you have read till now 🙄
    No wonder why your mind is so sharp. You have been such a reader throughout.
    Do you have a count?

    1. Oh is it? I remember you telling me that you didn’t get the time to leave a comment. This is one of them na.

      Hahah! Actually, along with writing this is again one of the deliberate habits I’ve created last year. Reason?

      Because I have always been good at writing but bad a reading. So I made a habit of coming home after 12 hours of working, and then 1 hour of writing, and 1 hour of reading.

      It was my daily routine for the entire 2019 and by doing that I completed 26 in a year. 1 book in every 15 days for an entire year.


      1. I would have instantly adopted this habit if it wasn’t lockdown..
        I mean I am so impressed to know it all from you. The way you constantly working to improve yourself day by day. And your efforts are seen in your posts. You have come a long way….

        Yaa this was one of the post I saved to read later.. I found the book interesting but more than that your review on it…

      2. You say I inspire you but the truth is you’re always keen to learn, to grow. And I love such women who are not into bitching, into someone else’s life, or gossiping about other women, but purely dedicated on her own goals. This will keep you far away from such people.

        You’re such a sweetheart to say kind words. I’m smiling.
