A Book Recommended by Your Local Bookseller: Me Before You by Jojo Moyes 

This is not a book I would typically pick up and read on my own.  While I liked the book and have purchased the second book, it just left me feeling unfilled.  I wanted so badly for it to end differently but I know the author was trying to make a point with this book.  Maybe the follow up book will make me feel better.  But I am at least glad I read it.  It was a real eye opening book.  

Southern Belle Reads: Me Before You

I decided to read Me Before You in case I went to see the movie.  Cause we all know the book is always better than the movie.  I have not seen the movie yet, but I will someday.  This is not the type of book I usually read.  I like books with a happy ending, but from what I had heard I knew this was going to be far from happy.  But I liked this book, far more than I thought I would.  I did not want to put it down.  Of course I would have liked it more if it had a happier ending but I think the ending really drove home a point.  But I can’t wait to see the movie to see how they compare.

2016 Reading 

By now I should be nine almost ten books into my 2016 reading Challenges. I have one book read out of the twenty-four total I am challenging myself to read. I have two challenges of twelve books each I am trying to complete. My personal reading challenge; 12 of the 100 Books to Read in a Lifetime and the one from The Modern Mrs. Darcy Blog, the one book that I have completed so far is one for the Modern Mrs. Darcy Reading Challenge, a book published this year. The book I have read that was published this year is Stardust in Dixie by Beth Albright. It is part of a series so of course I was all over that. It was a good book and I can’t wait for the next book in the series. I love those Sassy Belles. I need to get my butt in gear reading though; I have some big books on my list. The next book I think I am going to read is Me Before You by JoJo Moyes. Just in case I want to see the movie, because if a movie is based on a book you never see the movie before reading the book!
