Book Review: Me Before You (Me Before You #1) by: Jojo Moyes

Release Date: December 31, 2012
from Viking Adult
Goodreads | Amazon

"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."

My Thoughts:

I was warned. I knew going in that this book would hurt and it really did. There were tears and ugly sobbing. It was not pretty. But at the same time this book is gorgeous. I loved every single word of this book and its one of those books you know you will never forget.

Louisa and Will were both wonderful. I loved Will and his grumpy ways and dry humor. I loved Louisa and her quirky attitude and crazy clothes. I loved how they brought out the best in each other. I liked watching these two people go from hating each other to so much more. I just loved it all. It was crazy to see both characters evolve so much over the course of the book. I also loved the view of both families in this one. Neither of these families are perfect and I was so mad at so many of them a lot of the time, but I really appreciated certain people towards the end.

I know I’m being intentionally vague but I don’t want to spoil anything and I’m really a bit at a loss of what to say so I’ll leave it at this: Me Before You is a gorgeous and heartbreaking read and I recommend it to all.

  3. Oh gosh oh gosh oh gosh I know this book will leave me in a bucket of tears. I don't even want to read it! I do but I don't, if you know what I mean. I don't usually like YA contemporary so this is one that I would usually avoid, but I also want to know. You know? :D I'm glad you enjoyed this book, Teresa! <3

  4. Oh, I got this in audio and am excited to listen. I'm kind of dead inside so I don't expect much, but I do like a good romance/sad story, lol.
