I am finally uploading this after it being in my draft box for ages…forgive me. I have previously done Ravenclaw , so if you want to read it – click here.
So, without further ado these are my book recommendation for those Harry Potter fans who think they are in Gryffindor.
The Princess Bride by William Goldman.
The Sun is also a Star by Nicola Yoon
Black Beauty by Anna Sewell.
A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens.
Yes Please by Amy Poehler.
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen.
All The Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr.
Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor.
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.
Lets chat all things Me Before You, After You and Still Me — Have you read the books or watched the film? What is your favourite quote? What is your favourite part? If you didn’t enjoy them, why?
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?
