    Thank you NetGalley and Simon & Schuster for generously sharing the ARC of this book in exchange for my honest review I chose to read this book because in the Advance praise section I had read,Oh wow. Just wow. If you liked Me Before You, you'll love You, Me, Everything. Heartbreakingly beautiful’Claire Mackintosh And I am a sucker for heartbreak !! But, I was left disappointed after this book. When the story began, I instantly liked it. I was...

    Wow! What a brilliantly written, lovely book. Everyone: you HAVE to read this if it's the only one you read this year. Just make sure you have the tissues handy though as it WILL make you laugh and cry throughout its pages.
  • Kathy - Books & Munches
    The one thing that definitely deserves to be mentioned first is how there are so many hard topics tackled in this novel. From illness to alcoholism to being a single parent to the pressure kids can have on a relationship - it's all there!And all those topics made this book that more amazing to read because they are incorporated in a real, genuine way that made my skin crawl at times. You can feel the hardships all characters are dealing with - p...

    Oh My Heart! I just need to take a little breath before I write this review, because this book is just so incredibly gorgeous. It is such a beautiful book. It made me laugh, it made me cry, and I fell in love with all of the characters. I couldn't focus on anything else while I read this book, set in the beautiful Chateau de Roussignol, in the French countryside. It waa all consuming.It's a book about lost love, about paternal lov, about the love...

    Oh, this book really got to me and it is a story that will not be easily forgotten. Jess and Adam fell in love but it wasn't enough to keep them together. Ten years later and at the request of her beloved mother who is fading away before their eyes, Jess is heading to France with her amazing ten-year-old son so that Adam can form a real bond with their child. And who wouldn't enjoy a few weeks in a lovely chateau in the beautiful French countrysi...

    I loved this book, i loved the way the story was told and I loved Jess as a lead character. This books is exactly what it says it is, heartbreaking and hopefully all the same time. You will not want to put it down once you have picked it up because Jess is such a great character to spend time with, but also you will need to know what is going to happen next. As soon as I started reading this book, I felt like I just needed to settle in for the ni...
  • Jessica
    I had absolutely no idea when I picked up this book to read how emotional it would be! It is a real tear jerker so you will definitely need plenty of tissues when reading this!The main character Jess has been through so much and at parts of the book you just think it can't get any worse for her then it does and my heart just went out to her. She is an incredibility strong person that you instantly connect with.The thing I loved most about this bo...

    2018-04-07 first scene in the prologue when Jess is giving birth gives a very clear picture of Adam and where his loyalties lay. Then 10 years later, Jess and William are packing for their summer stay with Adam. While in the Dordogne, Jess reflects on her relationship with Adam before she fell pregnant which I must admit, made me feel ambivalent towards him. I didn’t want to like him but found myself as emotiona...

    A summer in France will bring more than a suntan for Jess, William and Adam.Pass me the thesaurus. I simply do not have adequate vocabulary to express how much I love You, Me, Everything. Let me be honest, it isn’t the most literary work of fiction I’ve ever read, it doesn’t have a heart thumping plot with visceral murder and psychologically challenged protagonists, but I absolutely adored every moment of being submersed in the lives of tho...

    I loved this beautiful book which is guaranteed to pull at your heart strings!! It had me burning the midnight oil a sure sign of a fantastic read. Jess the main character who I s facing an uncertain future due to illness selflessly puts her own feelings aside to try to forge a relationship with her son and his father. Family relationships, love,seperation, illness and friendships are all beautifully explored . A emotional must read.
  • Kaisha (The Writing Garnet)
    All reviews can be found on my blog at https://thewritinggarnet.wordpress.comOh.....I don't even know where to begin. How do you even review a book like this? I hadn't even reached the halfway point before my heart decided to start breaking. 'You Me Everything' is a story which managed to capture my heart almost straight away. As a single mum myself, it was pretty clear that I was going to side with the main character and relate to her point of ...

    3.5 Stars...I REALLY love second chance Romance and I always mention that. So anyway, when I saw this on, I was excited to read it. But I wasn't expecting Adam to have a current girlfriend and FOR ME that was a big turn off. But to the good stuffs first. I love almost everything about this novel. I love Laura and how she managed to take care of her son, William, all these years and how her parents included in his son's life. Her par...
  • Grace J Reviewerlady
    I'm not quite sure exactly what I expected from this novel, but I got so much more than I ever thought. It will leave you worn out, exhausted - and desperately sorry that you've reached the final page.This is usually where I give a brief outline of the book - without giving away more than the synopsis alludes to, but this time I don't want to expand on the blurb one little bit. This is a book about happiness, friendship, children, relationships, ...
  • Linda Hutchinson
    ⭐⭐⭐⭐ “You Me Everything” written by Catherine Isaac is at its core a precious love story. Like most love stories, it’s a journey filled with good days, bad days, horrific days, and wondrous days. I enjoy these type of books because they are sweet reminders to live each day to the fullest and treasure what we have, to live in the moment. I can’t share too much without giving away the plot but I really thought it was a charming stor...
  • Jinghay (TheSecretNoceur)
    I absolutely adore this book SO much. It constantly had me engaged with the story and when I wasn't ugly crying from how tragic life can be I was laughing so hard until I ended up crying again anyway.The characters are so lovely, and that just makes the events that happen all the more heart breaking.. (You might want to send help because i'm kinda still in pieces over here). I feel like reading "You Me Everything" will really help to show you wha...
  • Valerie
    thank you Netgalley for providing me with this book.Ik vond dit echt een prachtig boek, het einde heeft me echt verdrietig en tegelijkertijd blij achtergelaten. Het is heel mooi geschreven, over de liefde en over het leven. Ik weet dat meerdere boeken hier over gaan maar niet iedereen kan het pakkend schrijven en het ook mooi neerzetten. Het verhaal leest ook als een trein met de kleine hoofdstukken en de makkelijke schrijfstijl.
  • Saarah Niña
    Underwhelming This book fell a little short for me. Just, underwhelming considering I thought it might be like Jojo Moyes' Me Before You or just Moyes' writing. The only comparison? It's a love story. And, one I didn't enjoy very much. Nor, did I like the way the book was written- it was unnatural. The reader was told too much too soon. There was no anticipation, until near the end but everything else was immediately put out there. I had no curio...

    4.5 starsYou Me Everything is beautifully written, emotional, and heart wrenching story about second chances, family, and courage in the face of a devastating illness. I loved everything about the book: exquisite writing, complex characters, gorgeous setting, and a beautiful life-affirming message. So grab a glass (or two) of delicious French wine, a box of tissues and enjoy this wonderful story. *ARC provided by the publisher via Edelweiss.
  • Kate’s Book Spot
    I received this very special signed proof a while ago and have been looking forward to it ever since. Written by Catherine Isaac, who is also known as Jane Costello (a favourite of mine), I already knew this would be a pretty standout read.An eventful prologue set the scene for a warm and witty story that sparked a whole range of emotions within me. Not all of the characters were completely likeable to begin with. Adam was very much being painted...

    Single mum Jess has travelled to the Dordogne with her young son William so he can spend time with his father, Adam, who lives there. Having only sporadic contact with him in the past since their relationship broke down when William was a baby, Jess is determined father and son bond...and her urgent reasons become clear as the story progresses.Although very readable, I didn't feel that emotional pull that other books in this genre have managed to...

    review to follow closer to publication.
  • Gaele
    For ten years now, Jess has believed the worst of Adam, her son William’s father, absent at the best of times, disconnected always, and decidedly unreliable, she’s in Adam’s hotel for a summer stay with her son, for them to spend quality time together. Jess isn’t particularly enamored of this idea, but her mother’s determination and pushing her to rely on someone to be there for young William is just too much to ignore. But she still se...
  • Chelsea Lowe
    Such a wonderful, life-affirming read! I am a huge Jane Costello fan (Catherine Isaac's pseudonym) and so heading into this book I had a lot of expectations, as well as a few concerns. With any author I love, I am always a bit paranoid that their next release won't be as good as the previous. But I can honestly say that Isaac excelled herself with You Me Everything! The story focuses on Jess, a young mother to a 10-year-old boy called William. Je...
  • Ruby
    Full Review:'You, Me, Everything' is the first novel under the pseudonym Catherine Issac, however, although I have seen this book marketed as a 'debut' novel, the author has previously written as Jane Costello, therefore, I personally wouldn't read this as a debut. However, this novel is starkly different to Issac's previous work and therefore, the name change is understandable. This book was beautiful!'Yo...
