Me Before You by Jojo Moyes
Picked this based on other bloggers' recommendations. Not my typical genre - I'd still call it chicklit, but it gets a layer deeper than the usual boy-meets-girl. I decided to read it because everyone said grab some Kleenex when you read it.
A story that makes you cry? I'm game.
Yes it did make me cry. Yes, it made me stayed up to find out what happened on a work night. Yes it made me think what I'd have done had I been in the same situation (either as the male OR female protagonist). Yes I liked that the ending is a bit different.
But it was still predictable to me.
3.5 Stars - why not higher? It was a bit long and dragged on a bit, and some characters felt a bit flat and stereotypical. I did like it better than the typical chicklit though so 3.5 is actually a high score for this genre for me.
Note - The book was borrowed from the library.
