Book Review – Me Before You by JoJo Moyes

Just, wow! For me, a great story is made by its ability to pull me in, affect my emotions, challenge my thinking, and stay with me several days after making it difficult to move on. Me Before You did all that! This is more a story about love rather than a love story, but there is a definite connection between the characters. The author did a tremendous job writing from both the perspective of caretaker and physically challenged, as well as differentiating between the classes. I can sympathize with every emotion expressed by Will, and I would love to meet him and have a conversation. Lou was a beautiful character. This is a tremendous story that I recommend everyone to read. I struggled with the topic of euthanasia. It does make me happy that I choose life.

Book Review – Loving Mr. Daniels by Brittainy C. Cherry

I’ve been aware of Loving Mr. Daniels¬†for some time and the rave reviews that it has received. For some reason, I had it listed on my TBR list and have held off reading it¬†because of my own stupidity of being embarrassed reading a new adult novel at my age. How wrong I was! This was a well written and captivating story! Without any spoilers, I was concerned with my assumption concerning the ages between the main characters; this was handled perfectly. I felt every connection between the characters, every moment of pain and every moment of peace. I love the struggles and the quirkiness of the heroine, and I respect all choices that she made in the story. It isn’t often that we find a strong heroine that we completely agree with, and Daniel is definitely one of the better book boyfriends! Just remember to keep a box of tissue nearby.
