After You by JoJo Moyes

After You (Me Before You, #2)

When I first heard that Me Before You would have a sequel I wondered how Jojo Moyes would be able to pull it off. It either could go fairly decently or be a big old hot mess.
How do you top a book that was perfection to me?

The author does have a bit at the beginning asking readers to not spoil anything for other readers and I will respect that, because just because a book doesn’t work for me doesn’t mean that everyone will feel that same way.
It’s just that….I felt so personally invested in that first book.
When this one started out I was okay. Lou was battling her grief over Will’s death. I know how hard losing someone can be. It’s devastating. Hell, Will was a book character and I shed a whole lot of tears over him myself.
I feel like JoJo Moyes should have had a best friend that just stopped her when she presented the idea of this book to her. Instead of encouraging her….

Because, it did not work. AT ALL.
