Like most everyone who has read it, I fell so in love with Me Before You–I even liked the movie! Unlike most everyone, I also liked After You. I’ve worked with a lot of Will Traynors–well, pre-accident Will Traynor-types. It rang so true. The third installment of this series, Still Me, keeps the high standard of the series, but like book two, can’t hope to achieve the glorious love-pain of Me Before You. But don’t worry–there is still so much to love that you will definitely want to read it. Even more than an adorable pug named Dean Martin!
This time around, Louisa Clark has landed in what at first glance appears to be the Trumps with a side dish of Mrs. Danvers. But keep reading. The Louisa we all love is in there–big time. New York is the perfect antidote for Louisa as she tries to find out who she really is, what she really wants to do with her life and who and what she really needs in that life.
If you were upset with After You, give Louisa a second chance. You won’t regret it. And, I can’t wait to see who plays Dean Martin in the eventual movie. This book is the Bees Knees! And, yes, that line is important!
