Are there any answers when someone you love makes a tragic choice?

Before and After. That’s how Rowan Areno sees her life now. Before: she was a normal sixteen-year-old—a little too sheltered by her police officer father and her mother. After: everything she once believed has been destroyed in the wake of a shattering tragedy, and every day is there to be survived.

If she had known, on that Friday in March when she cut school, that a random stranger’s shocking crime would have traumatic consequences, she never would have left campus. If the crime video never went viral, maybe she could have saved her mother, grandmother—and herself—from the endless replay of heartache and grief.

Finding a soul mate in Eli, a witness to the crime who is haunted by losses of his own, Rowan begins to see there is no simple, straightforward path to healing wounded hearts. Can she learn to trust, hope, and believe in happiness again?

I just finished Me Since You and I am ripped to shreds. I’m done. Gone. Completely owned by this book. I just felt like I had to tell SOMEONE about the incredible power and amazingness that is this book. It needs to be known and shared with the world, so that you can go request it on Edelweiss and read it immediately.

If you hate tear-jerkers or books that will make you cry, then I admit that Me Since You isn’t the book for you. I cried all the tears in the world over this book. It wrung me out until not a single tear was left.

I don’t think I’ve ever read a more real and genuine book in my life! I absorbed every single emotion from this book and felt them as if they were my own. They CRIPPLED me!

I was right there with Rowan screaming to her dad, WHY WHY WHY??? HOW COULD YOU DO THIS?? HOW COULD YOU LEAVE ME?? HOW COULD YOU PUT MOM AND I THROUGH THIS?? Never before have I felt so much grief and anger towards a fictional character. I was confused, lost, and I totally retreated within myself to wallow in these emotions.

If you want a book that will strip you bare and somehow put the fragments of your soul back together again, you need to read Me Since You.

I feel so sorry for Allegiant because I’m reading that book next and I just know it’s not going to be as good as Me Since You. This book has ruined me for all other books!

This is just a preview to share my excitement! Look out for my full review on February 1st!

  1. Is it morbid that I sort of love books that are so gut wrenching and intense and painful? Or am I just a glutton for punishment? I dunno but I’ve got a serious case of grabby hands just seeing your reaction to it. The Fault in Our Stars had me in puddle but I don’t think you had the same reaction to it. So I have a feeling Me Since You might send me over the edge. And I can’t wait. : ) *sends up a wish to the Edelweiss people*

    1. I’m totally there with you! I love the gut wrenching books. They’re the ones that really make me FEEL and I think it’s amazing when a book can do that to you!

      Yeah this is The Fault in Our Stars times a million if you ask me!

  2. Aww I’m glad that you loved this so much! It sounds so emotional and I think I’m going to request this soon just because I NEED a book that will make me cry to kick me out of a reading slump. I’m really glad that you thought Me Since You was really genuine, I think I remember you using this as a WoW book 🙂

    1. YES! Omg Eileen I hope you love it!! *fingers crossed* If you don’t, then don’t tell me, because that would just make me sad. LOL

    1. Yes there is closure! There’s nothing to leave you hanging or unsatisfied. 🙂 It’s really well wrapped up and ends pretty brilliantly.
