If you've read my review of Me Before You (by the same author), you'll know that I am a big, big Jojo Moyes fan. Me Before You had me in floods of tears and affected me in a way that very few books have. I am so excited about Jojo Moyes' new release, The One Plus One, and I hope that it will be just as good, if not better, than Me Before You. I usually stick to YA when reading, probably just out of habit, but its the occasional book, such as this, that has the power to draw me away from the teenage drama to more serious stories. Anyone else read Jojo Moyes' work? I've only read Me Before You but I've heard her other stories are excellent too. 

Check out my review of Me Before You HERE.

What's everyone else waiting on this week? Let me know in the comments below! :)

  1. I keep hearing amazing things about Moyes and I never read anything from her. Maybe it's time I changed that. :)
    Hope you get it soon!

  5. I've only recently started to read Adult (instead of all YA :P), and this sounds like it would be really great :) I love that it's about people falling in love who have kids, etc.
