you-reccomend

Guys, you’re taking over my blog.

At least for today, anyway.

This blog is basically one huge recommendation for reading. There’s an endless amount of books talked about on here, but even so, there’s even more I’ve not yet discovered.

Now, recently I posted my Reading Resolutions for 2017 video. For those who you who haven’t seen it (which you totally should, you know. Would be very much appreciated *winks*), three of the resolutions on there are about bringing a difference to my reading taste.

1. I hope to read more nonfiction

Me before you

*All reviews I write are spoiler free*

I feel like everyone is reading this book lately thanks to the movie trailer being released, and while I don’t usually like contemporary books, I had to jump on the bandwagon with this one. I watched the trailer more times than I cared to admit, so I ordered the book as soon as I could and dove into it the very same day it arrived at my door.

So let’s talk about Me Before You!
