Me Before You review:





Snapchat: @clockwork_reads





Green Eggs And Sam says:

I recently used I’ll give you the Sun in one of my videos, I would love it if you maybe did a review on it! Subscribed (:

Trinidad Barañao says:

Have you Reader Gabriel garcia marquez????
Read it now
He invite magical realism

Kayla Rayne says:

I always see The Shadow of the Wind and have a desire to read it right away! It really does seem like a magical kind of book.

maryam batool says:

I love watching your videos!
Currently, The Catcher in the Rye is on my nightstand. The Shadow of the Wind might be the next book that I pick up, so high five! 🙂 I have heard nothing but amazing things about it so it better be good 😉

Jennifer Cahill says:

My answers would be:

1. Theft of Swords by Michael J. Sullivan (husband asked me to read it)

2. Queen of Hearts by Colleen Oakes (Alice in Wonderland re-telling)

3. V.C. Andrews (I became obsessed as a teenager and she really shaped my life & writing)

4. I guess some old romances I enjoyed in college? Not all that embarrassing though.

5. Right now we’re in an apartment so really not the way I plan to when we have a house and more shelves. The only organized shelf is the one in my bedroom, filled with favorites and series, a shelf I split with my husband that has my TBRs I plan to/might read this year (organized by month), and recently we cleared a space so I could do a rainbow shelf 🙂

6. I guess the Cinder series. I read Cinder when it was recent but then I guess I didn’t realize it was going to be a series because I never read the rest. I am remedying that this year, though. I also haven’t read anything by Sarah J Maas yet and had not heard of her until Booktube.

7. Wuthering Heights. I just didn’t enjoy it at all really!

8. Drawn to Horror, Controversial Topics, Dark fiction, but also Contemporary & Magical Realism. I am not a huge fan of Non-fiction or Sci-Fi for the most part.

9. I’m actually not really sure what I would recommend. Something inspiring that would help him understand everyday people, maybe.

10. I plan on reading either Dust Lands by Moira Young or Invisible Monsters by Chuck Palahniuk.

Jules hillman says:

YES! I couldn’t stand Me Before You, either! And whenever I try to talk to my friends about it they look at me like I’m crazy! Ugh, it was just terrible.

PixieTonic says:

Girl your skin looked absolutely RADIANT in this video<3 And omg I'm actually so surprised that you haven't read All the Light We Cannot See. I haven't read it myself but i feel like thats a very Hannah book. Lol idk sometimes i see books and i'm like "hannah would like this", like i don't even do that with anyone else i just feel like i have a good grasp on the books you'd enjoy??? x

Jennifer says:

Dang it! I just returned Vicious to the library because I needed to check another one out. I didn’t get to read it though. I’ll have to get it again!

Dolphin11 says:

I also think our 2 presidential candidates can benefit from reading “feminism is for everybody”

ohhthatskellie says:

I’m glad you’re enjoying I’ll Give You the Sun! It’s one of my favorite books (:

LeftyReads says:

I just got Vicious in the mail yesterday, and now I’m even more excited to read it! Also, I loooove your shelf organization system. When I get some more shelves, I might do something similar.

Sorry you didn’t like Me Before You. I personally did love the cap outta it, but I know that it can be problematic, so I get it.

Maddie says:

I love this tag. Great answers!(: Vicious is an amazing book. I read it last month, and I was so impressed by it. I need to read more V.E. Schwab books. I love her writing style. Your shelves are so pretty!(:

jo-die says:

I have the same feeling with The Cursed Child, I’m glad that I’m not alone 🙂

Oneradman93 says:

eyebrows on fleek

Leanne Rose says:

I have the same experience with All The Light We Cannot See! I’ve been meaning to pick it up for so long but just haven’t got to it.

The Ghost Writer says:

I have to start organizing by color.

Becks Bookshelf says:

You should read all the light we cannot see soon I love that book so much!

squibblesreads says:

Ok first of all girl you look GOOD in this video, and 10/10 would require the president to read Feminism is for Everybody! And if I am free I will hop on Shadow of the Wind with you!!!!!

Haley Wyatt says:

I have a question that’s not exactly on topic with this video. I know you (as most people do) hate love triangles. What if a character starts dating a guy, and realizes that’s not what she wants, then she breaks up with him and ends up going out with another that was already her friend?

Jose Mariaud says:

The Shadow of the wind is my favorite trilogy of life *o*

omecdazetlnjjjlt says:

you should make a video about the books you think you’ll never read! I think those videos are so interesting to watch 🙂 just a suggestion!

Alberte Larsen says:

I caught “milk and honey” by Rupi Kaur sitting on your shelf – do you mind sharing your thoughts on it? I’ve been thinking about buying it for awhile

Elizabeth Mueller says:

I am reading All the Light We Cannot See right now and it is amazing!!

AriaRecaps says:

I have been meaning to read Vicious for so long, I’m glad you loved it 🙂 YES I would love to meet J.K. Rowling, aside from the fact that she is an amazing author she is also an amazing person 🙂 I also really want to read all the light we cannot see, would you be interested in buddy reading it sometime?

Hannah Stevenson says:

Yes Vicious!

Sparky Loves Books says:

You should do a magical realism book rec video, because I’d love to read more books in that genre but don’t know of any!

QueenAurora'sBooks says:

i’m so sad u didn’t like me before u! it’s one of my all time favs I hope u still like the movie because it’s amazing! Although if u hated the book i don’t see how u could like the movie as it is very very accurate. Also idk if u noticed already sorry if u have but I tagged u in my original tag the phantom of the opera book tag here’s the link it’s okay if u don’t want to do it i just really want people to do it that love phantom as much as I do. I hope u do it, ur one of the top ppl i want to see do this tag but it’s fine if u don’t.

Jennifer Cahill says:

I had an interesting idea earlier concerning HP: What if JK did a spin-off of the series in which Neville was the chosen one? Thoughts?

I’m probably not going to read Cursed Child until I re-read the original series. Going to be hard, but I want to be really fresh with the story and characters before I dive in and it’s honestly been a while since I’ve read them!

Your shelves are beautiful and I agree that you should just do what works for you. Did you make the middle shelf the white/black because The Night Circus is your favorite and you wanted it eye-level/camera level or is that just a happy coincidence?

Me Before You seems to be a very mixed book on here from what I’ve seen. I’m not in a huge hurry to read it, but I will probably give it a go later on if I have time this year. Just to see which camp I fall in.

Eleanor Kate says:

All the Light We Cannot See is one of the best books I’ve ever read.

JAsmine Ong says:

can u please recommend some magical realism? I want to read this genre and I didn’t see any recommendations around ><

teresa rose says:

Great video! This tag seems really fun, I’m definitely going to have to do it myself 🙂

Natasha Paula says:

I was actually thinking about reading Me Before You but after learning more about the story I’ve decided not to. To me a story about a character with a disability written for able bodied people is just wrong is just wrong. It reminds me of things like Jenny’s Wedding which didn’t exist for lesbians to enjoy but to teach a lesson to straight people. Media like that to me is instantly a no for me

LucieReads says:

Feminism is for everybody is now definitely going on my tbr 🙂

PumpkinMozie says:

am I the only one who totally doesn’t get the name of this tag? Like is it just me or does it just not make any sense??

Annesofie says:

have you read like water for chocolate? it’s such a beautiful magical realism novel.

4484steph says:

I love your videos you’re so well spoken! I really enjoyed I’ll Give You the Sun and I hope you do too! I look forward to hearing your thoughts 🙂

Nuria says:

Have you heard of Christopher Barzak? I am not sure if you could categorize his books as magical realism, although I believe “The Love we share without knowing” could fall into that category for sure, but they have magical/paranormal themes in our normal world. Well, “One for Sorrow” is definitely more paranormal than magical, but my favourite “Wonders of the invisible world” has aspects of both magic and paranormality, I suppose. Either way, I highly recommend these books, they can get a little sad (especially One for Sorrow), but they are absolutely beautiful, incredible writing, and wonderful themes/stories 🙂

Natasha Hertanto says:

So much praise for Vicious going around, it’s making me really want to read it!

HeyyAshleyRae says:

where are your shelves from?

Jayna Lascaibar says:

So many great thoughts as always, and your make up is on point. I also organize my books in a variety of ways ranging from alphabetical, to series, to aesthetics, and topic.

Oh my, I love your review of Me Before You. I haven’t read the book, and haven’t been interested. I think that you illuminate exactly what I feared.

As a person who was conceived and born to a disabled man (he was cool with being called this) who had suffered a stroke at age 22, rendering him unable to have use of his left side (and he was a left handed person), I cannot imagine myself enjoying this book. My father did suffer depression and anger and many feelings of inadequacy, leading to a divorce. He did die young (37), but fortunately for his children it was of natural causes, not that this doesn’t devastate a 14 and 16 year old. He found things to live for for him, not even for us as his children. He built things from wood, mowed lawns, created beautiful landscape (all with his right arm). Everything took him FOREVER.

This life experience, as well as having a good friend whose mom did take her life because she could not handle the ailments of her MS, lead me to know that the perspective of this book (based on many reviews I have read) trivializes in vast degrees the people who are affected by suicide or assisted suicide other than the person making the choice. No choice is insular and, sometimes, even the best choice is selfish.

Okay, word vomit done. =)

Hannah Kania says:

What book did use as the background for the end of your video?

Céline says:

I’m so sorry you didn’t like Me Before You! I just read you review and I perfectly understand why you didn’t like it! I wanted to share my happiness because I officially finish on Friday, yeah!! I also wanted to thank you, because you always take the time to answer me and it always makes me smile, so thank you <3 You're very sweet and pretty!

Catriona Reads says:

I recently bought Vicious – really excited for it, I’ve heard such amazing things!
I really enjoyed All The Light We Cannot See, it’s definitely an Autumn/Winter read. Hope you enjoy it when you get to it!
