"Jojo Moyes has a hit with AFTER YOU.”—USA Today
“The genius of Moyes…[is that she] peers deftly into class issues, social mores and complicated relationships that raise as many questions as they answer. And yet, there is always resolution. It's not always easy, it's not always perfect, it's sometimes messy and not completely satisfying. But sometimes it is.”—Bobbi Dumas, NPR
“Think Elizabeth Bennet after Darcy's eventual death; Alice after Gertrude; Wilbur after Charlotte. The 'aftermath' is a subject most writers understandably avoid, but Moyes has tackled it and given readers an affecting, even entertaining female adventure tale about a broken heroine who ultimately rouses herself and falls in love again, this time with the possibilities in her own future.”–Maureen Corrigan, NPR
"Charming." —People Magazine
“Like its predecessor [Me Before You], After You is a comic and breezy novel that also tackles bigger, more difficult subjects, in this case grief and moving on… We all lose what we love at some point, but in her poignant, funny way, Moyes reminds us that even if it’s not always happy, there is an ever after.” –Miami Herald
Praise for ME BEFORE YOU:
"A hilarious, heartbreaking, riveting novel . . . I will stake my reputation on this book."—Anne Lamott, People
“When I finished this novel, I didn’t want to review it: I wanted to reread it. . . . an affair to remember.”—New York Times Book Review
“An unlikely love story . . . To be devoured like candy, between tears.”—O, The Oprah Magazine
“Funny and moving but never predictable.”—USA Today (4 stars)
“Masterful . . . a heartbreaker in the best sense . . . Me Before You is achingly hard to read at moments, and yet such a joy.”—New York Daily News
“Funny, surprising and heartbreaking, populated with characters who are affecting and amusing . . . This is a thought-provoking, thoroughly entertaining novel that captures the complexity of love.”—People Magazine
Praise for STILL ME:
“Still Me offers a warm conclusion to the Me Before You trilogy. . . resulting in the best entry in the trilogy yet. . . Moyes has crafted a clear-eyed tale of self-discovery and the sacrifice required to live a life honestly in pursuit of the things you love. [It will] keep you sighing with delight to the very last page. A.” —Entertainment Weekly (online)
“Louisa is the perfect mix of daffy and brilliant, a sartorial risk-taker with a knack for solving other people’s problems. It is utterly satisfying to watch her tackle her own. Readers of Sophie Kinsella and Graeme Simsion’s The Rosie Project will want to start at the beginning. … Moyes fans will be clamoring for the return of Louisa Clark.” —Booklist (starred review)
“Jojo's work never fails to bring a smile to my face with her honesty, humour and empathy about what it is to be human—[Still Me is] a must read!” —Emilia Clarke
“You sobbed through Me Before You. You sped through Me After You. And now, Lou is back in Still Me. . . don’t miss this funny, romantic third installment.” —HelloGiggles
“Moyes’s easy way of making you instantly care for her characters (deeply) prevails.” —goop
Praise for ONE PLUS ONE:
“Safety advisory: If you’re planning to read Jojo Moyes’s One Plus One on your summer vacation, slather on plenty of SPF 50. Once you start the book, you probably won’t look up again until you’re the last one left on the beach…[a] wonderful new novel.”
—The Washington Post
“Jojo Moyes’ new novel One Plus One adds up to a delightful summer read, where the whole is greater than the sum of its charming parts…Moyes’ observations on modern life are dryly hilarious…You don’t need to be a math whiz to figure out this book is one worth adding to your summer reading list.”
—USA Today (4 stars)
“Bridget Jones meets Little Miss Sunshine in this witty British romp from bestseller Moyes…Wryly romantic and surprisingly suspenseful.”
“Fans of the 2006 summer sleeper hit Little Miss Sunshine will find a lot to love in British author Jojo Moyes’ latest, about a madcap road trip that’s packed to the boot with familial drama, class clashes, and romance.”
—Entertainment Weekly (A-)
“No need to worry where this road trip is headed. Just sit back, roll down your window and enjoy being a passenger.”
—Cleveland Plain Dealer

The book quite literally begins with a bang (or crash?) with Louisa taking a bad fall and being collected by the paramedics. Intense and sad when we see just how (view spoiler). Once she is out of the hospital her parents insist she go to a support group for grieving people and she reluctantly agrees. Then, a teenager named Lily shows up on her doorstep with a surprising revelation and Louisa's life is embroiled in Lily's teenage drama. Then, she meets the paramedic that helped piece her back together after her fall and finds him just as wonderful as he was the night he saved her. Things are slowly turning around for Lou and she doesn't feel like she is letting Will down as much. But this is just the calm before the storm and while she tries to move on with Sam, can he deal with hr still painfully mourning Will? Can Lily ever get ehr head around her family issues and can Lou help her or is she just a punching bag for this hormonal teen with, rightly so, abandonment issues.
People looking for another heartbreak like Me Before You will be sorely disappointed. This is Lou's life moving on from that epic romance/tragedy. Why anyone would want to put her through something like losing Will a second time is beyond me. The story is intriguing and entertaining and no less Louisa Clark than the first book but it is MUCH more lighthearted (in comparison). Up next, Still Me. Enjoy!
I wish that I could say that I went into this book with a totally open mind but I find that impossible to do. I did not go into with a completely open mind because I was so invested in the story. The first book was so extraordinary that it set this one up to potentially fall on its face. Unfortuantely, in some ways, it did. It was nice to see how Lou was doing but some of the events completely came out of left field and I was not quite sure how to process them. Good character development for some and so so for others.
I am rating this book Three Stars because it fell short but I did not hate it. Predictable in some ways. Random in others. Upon finishing it, I hoped that any future books in the series would bypass this one. I wish that I could rate it higher because I loved Me Before You so much but I cannot. Not a horrible read but not up to the standards that the author gave us in the previous book. On the fence about recommending.
I hope there is another Louisa novel in the works as I've grown quite attached to her.
I'm not ashamed to say that Me Before You had me up reading until very late at night and then crying my eyes out until very early the next morning. It was the kind of book that sticks with you, the kind of book that is extremely hard to follow up. It ended on a very powerful note, so any book that calls itself a "sequel" has to match that kind of power. This didn't, not even close.
We follow Lou's life a year and a half after the death of Will, and we see what her life has become. Honestly, I didn't enjoy this Lou very much. Gone is any spark, any vitality, any humor, and without those aspects of her personality I had trouble staying engaged with her. I didn't like this pushover Lou, and I barely recognized her from the previous book.
Her life is wholly depressing. Lou is stuck completely in this sort of limbo, and reading about her mostly boring day to day things felt one note and tedious. Lou's family details, like her mother's newfound feminism and her sister's meddling, seemed contrived and almost silly. I didn't get what those side plots added to the story, and I didn't find them compelling.
Lou's love interest was just... there. He was sexy in a classic romance way- the patient, motorcycle-riding savior- but I simply didn't feel the chemistry between him and Lou. It felt like a relationship without weight, certainly without the intensity of Lou's relationship with Will. If you are going to present a love interest to follow the one from Me Before You, it would have to be absolutely epic... this wasn't.
And don't get me started on Lily. No spoilers from me, but Lily just irritated me to no end. She was SO selfish, and I struggled to feel much sympathy for her rich girl plight. I know the author tried to give us reasons to empathize with Lily, especially near the end with her convoluted backstory, but I was rooting for Lou to branch out and have more of the story-line to herself.
However, this book's greatest crime, IMO, was that it was boring. I kept putting this book down and starting other stories, only to force myself back to this one after a few hours. And though this book has brief moments of greatness, and it wasn't bad or offensive in any way, it also failed to grab me the way I was expecting it to. After the way Me Before You gripped me, I think this was the biggest let down of all.

It’s taken so long for me to read book 2! And this was by chance as I had run out of reading material on holiday and was given this book by someone else.
I loved it. I was worried because Me Before You was so good! How could book 2 match up?!
Personally, book 1 is my favourite, but I still loved After You. It really spoke to me. I’m grieving, and this book deals with that a lot.
I can’t wait to read book 3 and find out more about Louisa Clark!
I had wanted to get back into reading after not 'finding the time' for the past couple of these. I managed to finish this book in 2 days so it is amazing where you find the time when you are hooked to something.
I would highly recommend this book and collection to anyone looking for something light and easy to read. It is gripping from the get go and you won't be able to put the book down. Perfect read for the garden or if you have any holidays planned.
Recommend for all types of readers.
This book drew me in and kept me hooked in the same way as the first one, reading about Louisa again as underlining back an old friend and I fell in love with the new characters very quickly.
A great read, gripping, emotional, happy, sad it's all in here. Can't wait to read the next one!
I read two other books of hers a few years ago, liked them both, which is the reason I started reading her books again. However, I really hope I would not see the same pattern in “Still Me”.
I had a kind of a love hate relationship with this book. At times the soppy cheesiness was just too much and it reminded me quite often through the book of a Bridget Jones type writing and narrative style.
However I can’t deny that I couldn’t stop reading it and was desperate to find out what happened.
I can this this being made into a movie as well.
