Okay peeps, anyone interested in reading Me Before You by Jojo Moyes by JoJo Moyes? I know that Belkis, Tracy and Myself are going to start this, so if anyone else is interested, just come on by and let's chat about it as we read.

I've had this book for years sitting on my shelf and collecting dust. My version is this Me Before You by Jojo Moyes and I've been looking at it forever. It's pretty big lol. I also just found out that it's being made into a movie, which will be released this year and it is starring, I think, Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones) and Sam Clafin (Finnick from Hunger Games)…yummy!!





You know me and visuals…enjoy!

Whoo hoo. Now if I can just keep up with Belkis.

Oh who am I kidding, she will have this done in a day.

I still bet you will though. I just had a look through my kindle and found a copy of it on there too. Geez, I must of wanted to read this so badly if I bought an ebook and hardcopy too lol


Tracy | 7239 comments Mod
Haha Sylvia, I guess you did. Well I just got the audio as well. The narrator is or sounds the same as the one that did The Gamble (Colorado Mountain, #1) by Kristen Ashley and she has a pleasant voice.

I'm glad that the narrator is someone you like to listen to :D I've got it ready to go.

Hopefully they will! I'm really excited too and I'm in the mood for something like this :D


Belkis (bminaya) | 8313 comments I'm in of course :) I've wanted to read this book forever so let's do it! OMG I'm loving the visuals Sylvia and the fact that it's being turned into a movie and coming out this year! How did I manage to miss that tidbit LOL?! I've got both the ebook and audiobook for this one too girls so don't feel bad hahaha! Guess I really wanted to read it too. I can start on Sunday after I finish Read Player One which I started last night so have a ways to go on it still. But after that I'll start this one. I think Donna is going to be joining us on this buddy read too.

Yes Tracy she does have a nice voice. I enjoyed the narration of The Gamble so we should be good.

I'm loving the idea of seeing this on film and visuals are always important when reading lol I'll post more later

You are doing the British accent or are you listening on audio? Cause I don't think I am that talented.

Okay, I'm 26% (Chapter 8) and I feel so sorry for Will.

Oh, here is a pic of Sam and Emilia doing a reading of sorts for the movie …

Yeah, I'm not that talented. I'm starting today.


Belkis (bminaya) | 8313 comments I'm not accent capable either Tracy LOL! I'm starting it later today today.


Belkis (bminaya) | 8313 comments Thanks for the new pic Sylvia, love it :)


Belkis (bminaya) | 8313 comments I've started and yay! loving the British accent on the audio and the narrations are excellent!! Grabbed me from the first which is awesome as I came off of a boring boring read. So happy to be on a good one now. Currently on chapter 4 :)


Sylvia  | 13086 comments Mod
YAY glad both of you have started this and it is very attention grabbing from the start. I love how there is so much Australian references going on with the cafe owner being Aussie ... Very British of them lol

See Belkis you're already halfway of what I've read lol


Belkis (bminaya) | 8313 comments Heartbreaking from the start

Belkis (bminaya) | 8313 comments OMG poor people :( I can't even imagine what Will is feeling being tied to that miserable existence especially given the introduction to him in the first chapter right before the tragedy. He should've taken his chances with his bike let he was intending. I'm finishing off chapter 5....

Sylvia  | 13086 comments Mod
He really should of just ridden his bike like you said but instead he gets clobbered with one that left him in that awful state of existence. I'd give up too blah


Belkis (bminaya) | 8313 comments That's irony at it's most despicable :(


Tracy | 7239 comments Mod
I'm at chapter 7 and I agree with you guys. He should have taken the bike. I totally see why he is biter but I think most people would be after that. I don't think you could put a time on his healing process either. It's sad that something like that could and does happen.

Belkis (bminaya) | 8313 comments OMG her sister is such a selfish cow!! Oh thank goodness she's trying to makeup for it. So maybe she's not as awful as she came across LOL!


Tracy | 7239 comments Mod
I don't think she is Belkis. At first I thought so to but now I see why she is so upset. I would be to. I would probably be wheeling him around in circles I would be so upset. Then I would pop my mom upside the head.

Belkis (bminaya) | 8313 comments Oh lord that awful outing. How awful. OMG how terrible for poor Will :( could anything else possibly go wrong?? I want to weep for the 3 of them.

Well I didn't read your post well enough. I thought you said HIS sister because she was being rude. Her sister is a slfish cow. She has alwys gotten her way apparently.

Yes she has, really!


Tracy | 7239 comments Mod
I'm at 13 and we have had a couple of outings. The second one being very lovely, I think. I really hope he changes his mind or this book will kill me.


Belkis (bminaya) | 8313 comments I hope he changes his mind too Tracy but it has to be so hard for him :( I'm on chapter 15


Sylvia  | 13086 comments Mod
Oh shoot, I haven't had a chance to read at all today. Hopefully I can get the chance to read a little before going to bed. Been busy and ended up sitting at the hospital for ages. My uncle is dying from lung cancer and doesn't have long left. I couldn't stop crying seeing him like that :( only 55 years old.

You and me both Tracy. He's such a self-centered ass!

Oh Sylvia. I'm so sorry. That's so heartbreaking. I lost my auntie to lung cancer 4 years ago too. She was only 60 years old and we were devastated. Such a ruthless disease. My heart goes out to you honey.
