From the New York Times bestselling author of The Giver of Stars, discover the love story that captured over 20 million hearts in Me Before You , After You , and Still Me .

Louisa Clark arrives in New York ready to start a new life, confident that she can embrace this new adventure and keep her relationship with Ambulance Sam alive across several thousand miles. She steps into the world of the superrich, working for Leonard Gopnik and his much younger second wife, Agnes. Lou is determined to get the most out of the experience and throws herself into her new job and New York life.

As she begins to mix in New York high society, Lou meets Joshua Ryan, a man who brings with him a whisper of her past. Before long, Lou finds herself torn between Fifth Avenue where she works and the treasure-filled vintage clothing store where she actually feels at home. And when matters come to a head, she has to ask herself: Who is Louisa Clark? And how do you find the courage to follow your heart--wherever that may lead?

Funny, romantic, and poignant, Still Me follows Lou as she discovers who she is and who she was always meant to be--and learns to live boldly in her brave new world.

Louisa has always been a survivor. She knows how to tear her way through problems. As always a joyous ending.

Obviously, if I am to compare, no book in this trilogy could even get smallest bit close to how good “Me Before You” was. However, on its own, it was a really good book and much better than the second one!

I picked this book up without realising it was the third in a trilogy! Whoops. But still enjoyed and gathered enough from the plot to understand the themes in the previous books. Good easy to read summer novel.

In some trilogies, the first is good, the second is better, and the third is a disappointment (Star Wars, Indiana Jones, etc.). Some trilogies get it right the first time and gradually get worse (I'm looking at you Jurassic Park). And then you have some trilogies that peak high, dip low, then course correct somewhere inbetween at the end. That is where "Still Me" falls. I think Louisa Clark made the wrong choices, and I could not stay invested, despite the strong start.

I will preface this by saying I really loved the first book and enjoyed the second the same and was really excited to read this however I just fpcould not get into it and it seemed lik a cash grab by the author. I may read the first two again and give this one another shot but for now I will add it to my DNF list and suggest you pass this one up

The book hooked me pretty quickly and I looked forward to reading it every day. This author definitely has a formula for her stories, but I thoroughly enjoy it. It helps me unwind and forget about the world for a little while.

The first book intrigued me but then I wanted to throw it across the room. The second book had me hooked to the point that I read it in four days. But this.... I have tried to read this three times and have yet to get to the fourth chapter. That should speak volumes as to why I don't think this book was necessary.

I loved this book. A story of family, love and a quest to find who you really are. I enjoy the way Jojo Moyes writes. I would highly recommend her books.

The love I have for not just this book but the whole series.
This book tipped me over the edge with love. I talked about this one so much so that my partner purchased me the hardback version of it (and the rest of the series) because I wouldn't stop recommending it to people or bringing it up in discussions. By the third you feel like your Lou's friend. And you're sitting on the edge trying to see what she's going to decide to choose to do next. There were parts I found unnecessary, as though JoJo was running out of time and trying to add conflict (like Josh's storyline) but overall. I can't recommend this book enough. And we finally see Wills perspective of life (before the accident though). Amazing. 

Also people who didn't bother reading the story didn't find that she became independent and what a wonderful thing that was.

"You gotta have your places for community." Ashok raised a hand emphatically, slicing the air. "You gotta have places where people can meet and talk and exchange ideas and it not just be about money, you know? Books are what teach you about life. Books teach you empathy. But you can't buy books if you barely got enough to make rent. So that library is a vital resource! You shut down a library, Louisa, you don't shut just shut down a building, you shut down hope."

“I thought about how you’re shaped so much by the people who surround you, and how careful you have to be in choosing them for this exact reason, and then I thought, despite all that, in the end maybe you have to lose them all in order to truly find yourself.” - p. 375
