    "Me Before You by Jojo Moyes is a heartbreaking love story. The main message is not as uplifting as one would hope for though."

    "This book does a fantastic job of allowing the reader to see both Julianna's and Bryce's views of their lives and how they proceed into their futures. It's a great novel for rejection at first, that evolves into something even stronger, later on."

    "If you find cheesy Lifetime movies entertaining ... well, I still don't think you'd enjoy this book. I wanted something fluffy and predictable to read, but I couldn't even find that in this. Back to You is badly written and nothing really happens until the end. It's a bore."

    "A very specific topic at hand, but I am very confident this is definitely worth reading if you want something in between relative to the topic. I would say the positive reviews are greatly helpful to read since a hundred of those basically can be considered trusted, I have not read this one yet, but that won't be the case anymore."

    "I think this book does a good job representing a change of heart. It's a solid read that has decently interesting character development. It felt a little slow early on, but was gripping towards the end."

    "It was a truly good book, I read it a while ago. I just can't recall if the romance started AFTER the hero rejected her or not. It wasn't that memorable if it did, so I don't think this is a great suggestion."

    "You have to get this book if you like paranormal romance and you don't like an immediate and predictable love story. The hardcovers start around just $2 so you really can't go wrong. For the price I love that because I got a good story and then I'll just take it to Half Price Books when I'm done or donate it to the library."

    "I didn't think the initial rejection was a strong theme in this book. I felt like their romance was a bit lackluster in this."
