Read the book, saw the movie. What's Next after "Me Before You"?

Missing Will and Louisa from "Me Before You"? Jojo Moyes created memorable characters in the 2012 book and the movie released this year carried the legacy well. I was swept away by Louisa's transformation and how much I wanted to know more about her. Last year, the follow-up novel, "After You" carried the story forward. Personally, the sequel was as good as the original. I can highly recommend it. However, if you are like me and want EVEN more, I've got more titles that create wonderfully romantic and moving stories of unique individuals. All of these titles are found in the adult fiction section. First, Rowan Coleman brings us "We Are All Made of Stars" with thought-provoking and optimistic characters that we can all root for. Next, I recommend "Lily and the Octopus" by Steven Rowley. This heartbreaking, intimate novel focuses on love, loss, and grief whereas Michelle Wildgen's novel "You're Not You" focuses more on the new relationships young adults form when becoming caretakers to others confined to wheelchairs. For them, it becomes a life changing transformation. Transform your reading experience by diving into some life-affirming stories. For more suggestions, stop by the Fiction Desk and ask for me!!!

Need a fictitious departure from reality?

Called a "laugh-out-loud" novel of ambition and marriage and politics, Jennifer Close's "The Hopefuls" may bring a smile to those that want a break from the realities of the current election cycle. The story centers around Beth who follows her husband Matt first to Washington, D.C. and eventually Texas in pursuit of his political aspirations. At first she is willing to sacrifice everything but grows bored until the couple meet-cute another politically ambitious couple. Evangelical Ash and charismatic Jimmy become fast friends with Beth and Matt. After a time, however, Beth realizes that she's more attracted to Jimmy than her less-than-perfect husband Matt. Friendship, betrayal, hunger for power, young love -- all of MY ingredients for a great late summer beach read!!

Missing the Outlander series already?

Jamie and Claire may have just wrapped up their second season in the STARZ Outlander TV series. I, of course, have to wait until the library receives the TV series on DVD (not coming soon enough)! However, the historical fiction series started by Diana Gabaldon back in 1991 lives strong. Season 2 follows Gabaldon's Dragonfly in Amber.
