Greetings you guys! Gosh, we haven’t done a Throwback Thursday ever since we’ve switched to WordPress. I honestly can’t give you clear reason for that either. Probably admin. We hate admin and we had to add the new graphic to all the previous posts and make sure the old reviews are on the new blog and …. And that’s the main reason! I’ve realized that we are never going to pull in all the old reviews to our stunning new Ultimate Book Blogger Plug-in if I don’t make a plan around it. So joining in with Throwback Thursday, is our masterplan.
- The Chocolate Lady’s #Throwback Thursday takes place on the Thursday before the first Saturday of every month. Yes, there is a linky and it will remain open until she uploads the new one. Thank Goodness. My first and last sometimes gets very confused.
- Your post must highlight one of your previously published book reviews and Davida encourages other participants to do the same.
- Add the link to your post and remember to link back to The Chocolate Lady’s Book Blog And do not forget to #ThrowbackThursday!
It’s not quite yet the last Thursday of the month, but if we do a practice run this week, I’m sure we will have a perfect post next week. As this is our tenth Throwback Thursday and we have managed to upload the first 9 reviews ever written on our new blog, we can look back at our tenth review that was first published on July 23rd, 2016.After You by Jojo Moyes

How do you move on after losing the person you loved? How do you build a life worth living?
Louisa Clark is no longer just an ordinary girl living an ordinary life. After the transformative six months spent with Will Traynor, she is struggling without him. When an extraordinary accident forces Lou to return home to her family, she can’t help but feel she’s right back where she started.
Her body heals, but Lou herself knows that she needs to be kick-started back to life. Which is how she ends up in a church basement with the members of the Moving On support group, who share insights, laughter, frustrations, and terrible cookies. They will also lead her to the strong, capable Sam Fielding—the paramedic, whose business is life and death, and the one man who might be able to understand her. Then a figure from Will’s past appears and hijacks all her plans, propelling her into a very different future. . . .
For Lou Clark, life after Will Traynor means learning to fall in love again, with all the risks that brings. But here Jojo Moyes gives us two families, as real as our own, whose joys and sorrows will touch you deeply, and where both changes and surprises await.
Louisa Clark (she doesn’t go by ‘Lou’ that much anymore) is no longer just an ordinary girl living an ordinary life. After the transformative six months spent with Will Traynor, she is struggling without him and she finds it difficult to hold dear to the promise that she will live her life to the fullest. In fact, she might be even more confused than when she met Will 2 years ago.
How did she end up working in an airport bar watching over people go on the journeys Will so wished she would undertake herself?
Why doesn’t the flat she’s owned for a year feel like home?
Why does she dress in cheap jeans and un-imaginative t-shirts?
When a “this-will-only-happen-to-Lou” accident forces Lou to return home to her family, she can’t help but feel she’s right back where she started. While her body heals, Lou knows that something needs to change and she needs to be kicked back to life. Which is how she ends up in a church basement with the members of the Moving On Support group.

We didn’t tweak all that much on this review. First of all, it takes way too much time and it was a fun review to write 6 years ago. We still love Jojo Moyes and read just about anything published by her.
