Hello out there in blogger land,
Today I got another kind of dozy one for yall. This one will pull at your heart strings, but in a good way. It makes you want to be a better person and shows you that no matter what happens in your life you can do anything you set you mind to. "Me Before You" by Jojo Moyes, is inspirational, moving, funny, and is just all around a gauntlet of emotion.
Here is the summary taken straight from Goodreads...
"Lou Clark knows lots of things. She knows how many footsteps there are between the bus stop and home. She knows she likes working in The Buttered Bun tea shop and she knows she might not love her boyfriend Patrick.
What Lou doesn't know is she's about to lose her job or that knowing what's coming is what keeps her sane.
Will Traynor knows his motorcycle accident took away his desire to live. He knows everything feels very small and rather joyless now and he knows exactly how he's going to put a stop to that.
What Will doesn't know is that Lou is about to burst into his world in a riot of colour. And neither of them knows they're going to change the other for all time."
Lou is your ordinary girl, trying to help her family and figuring out what's going on with her boyfriend. Will is a cocky, arrogant man and still is even after his accident. Put these two together and you got a beautiful story. I won't tell you what happens or why it's a beautiful story, that you have to figure out yourself. There might be a time or two when you want to cry or hit one or both of the characters, but to me that is when you know the book is worth the time it takes to read.
Hope you give this book a chance and you will want to go in with an open mind as well as an open heart.
Till next week!!!!
Rating: 4/5 Lou's and Will's that a fan of the book drew.......
