STOP WHAT YOU ARE DOING AND FANGIRL WITH ME.
Today I received a review copy of Still Me by Jojo Moyes. People who have been reading my blog for a while now will know I am obsessed with the Me Before You books!! The book does not officially come out till the end of January 2018!

I am so freaking excited I could scream and cry continuously. Thank you so so much to Penguin (in particular Michael Joseph) for sending me this!!
They also sent me this super cute bookmark and tote bag, which I cannot wait to use. AHHHHHHH the bees.
Have you read Me Before You or After You?
Today I received Still Me by JoJo Moyes to read as PREVIEW copy! I was shaking with happiness and anticipation. Imagine Louisa’s face when she pulls out the black and yellow tights…that was me when the first chapter was downloading.
As you will all know by now, I AM OBSESSED WITH Jojo Moyes, especially her Me Before You books featuring my all time favourite protagonist Louisa Clark. Ahhh what a wonderful character she is.
I instantly stopped my day and devoured the first chapter, forever eager for more knowledge of Louisa and her travels. I can already tell that this book is going to give me what I want (and need!) Book two offered me the initial closure after the heart-shattering events in book one but I still long for more. Louisa is off to America for this next story and I am SOOO excited to see what adventures she goes on this year and I hope more of her quirky and awesome personality shines through in this one.
What do you think of the cover? I personally LOVE IT. I love the ‘black and yellow stripes’ look and the little bumblebee.
I am also really excited about more Louisa and Nathan, as I really liked their relationship. Honestly, in the second book I was a little disappointed in Louisa – I completely understood her loss and felt compassionate but I just missed happy go lucky and charming Louisa. I missed her go-get-it attitude at the end of book one, I just wanted to jump into the book and tell her to live the life Will wanted her to.
This chapter is already so telling – she has upped her life and moved to America, she is exploring the unknown and pushing herself. I LOVE IT and wish Jojo Moyes could release a book a year about Louisa because I feel like she is my friend.
I also hope we hear more about Lilly and Sam in this one!!!!
You will not be disappointed… Louisa is back and is as charming, wonderful, kind, strong, quirky and curious as ever.

What books comfort or stay with you?
On Thursday last week I went to an event at my university called Philip Pullman in discussion. Basically Pullman discussed his new book Le Belle Sauvage: The Book of Dust Volume One for a while and then he signed books.
AHHHHH HE SIGNED BOOKS!!
I stupidly left my copy of his new book at home so I purchased a different copy of Northern Lights.
Have you read any of Philip Pullman’s books? Have you read his latest one?
I need some help. I need you to leave me some book recommendations in the comments below!! Myself and my university friends are planing on starting a book club and I need some great book titles to suggest.
What have you read recently?
Also don’t forget to go and check out my Instagram or ‘bookstagram’ over at book_captivation.
I have just finished reading my review copy of Some Kind of Wonderful by Giovanna Fletcher. OMG I LOVVVVVVVEEEEE IT!!!
I am currently reading Turtles All The Way Down by the one and only JOHN GREEN. I have been longing for this book since the moment I finish all of his other books.
What are you currently reading?
“Or yet in wise old Ravenclaw,If you’ve a ready mind,
Where those of wit and learning,
Will always find their kind.“
As a lot of you will know, I am a Ravenclaw – Pottermore confirmed it and I feel it in my heart.
With these traits in mind, I thought I would recommend some books for fellow Ravenclaws.
- Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel.
- Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard
- The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion
- Atonement by Ian McEwan
- Emma by Jane Austen
- Matilda by Roald Dahl
