Lou Clark knows too many things . . .

She knows how many miles lie between her new home in New York and her new boyfriend Sam in London.

She knows her employer is a good man and she knows his wife is keeping a secret from him.

What Lou doesn’t know is she’s about to meet someone who’s going to turn her whole life upside down.

Because Josh will remind her so much of a man she used to know that it’ll hurt.

Lou won’t know what to do next, but she knows that whatever she chooses is going to change everything.

First sentence

It was the moustache that reminded me I was no longer in England: a solid, grey millipede firmly obscuring the man´s upper lip; a Village People moustache, a cowboy moustache, the miniature head of a broom that meant business.


 My thoughts

Me Before You by Jojo Moyes is extraordinary. After You by Jojo Moyes is a wonderful read. But Still Me is unique – as unique as Louisa Clark.

Jojo Moyes is one of my favorite authors and to be honest, it is quite a challenge to write sequels to a book like Me Before You. But Jojo Moyes managed to engage me in a story that reminded me so much of my own life that sometimes I had to put the book down to give myself time to think.

Louisa Clark is as loveable as charming. She finds herself in New York, not knowing whether she belongs into this world of blurry lights or if she might want to return back to London. Louisa works for a family with too many secrets and problems that seem irrelevant at first but really are not. Nathan, Margot, Sam, Josh Lily – Louisa is not on her own, although one must not forget a very little someone turning her life upside down: Dean Martin.

This story is not only about the obvious. This book is about finding yourself in a world that gives you little room to find out who you truly are. Jojo Moyes finds a way of making you explore the world whilst making you think about yourself and this is what struck me as absolutely unique. I´ve hardly ever read a book that made me think so much and made me not only want to change, but to be the person I truly am. This might sound cliché, but it´s true. This book will give you confidence in what you do and for me, it came at the right time.

I am me. And if I am anything like Louisa Clark, I will find my happily ever after. But most importantly I will be one thing: Still Me.

This book is one of my 2018 highlights and I strongly recommend it. Read this book – it will give you room to think while entertaining you in the best way possible.

I award this book with:
