Me Before You by Jojo Moyes

My Tuesday Intro pick is Me Before You by Jojo Moyes. This book has received a lot of praise and many of my book friends have said it is one of their favorite books of 2013. I just received a copy of the book, and I am hosting a giveaway so see my sidebar to go to the link and enter, or go HERE.

~ Excerpt From Bookbrowse, go to link to read the first two pages. 

The first chapter, titled "2009", pulled me in more than the prologue so keep on reading!

What do you think? Would you keep on reading 
or move on to something else?


  1. this is the third blog I've seen this on today--must be good. I think I'd better read it. kelley—the road goes ever ever on

  2. Kelley is right; the buzz on this book just grows and grows. I can't wait to get my hands on a copy - I entered your contest:)- especially since the book is being adapted for the screen. From what I've heard it will make a fabulous film - but i gotta read it first, eh. Yes, keep reading.

  3. Well this sure is a popular book today! I'll look forward to reading all the reviews :-)

  4. I don't want to tell you this but it took me a good 150 pages before I was invested in this book. But once I was--boy was I!! I think you'll enjoy it.

  5. I have this one on audio and is next up. Maybe we can chat about it after we're done!

  6. Everyone seems to like this book. Makes me want to read it too.
