About the book – Me Before You

Second month of book club, and I asked for some recommendations. I even looked into book club lists and this book popped up. It’s a New York Times number 1 bestseller, and was recommended by my librarian friend. I’m already excited to read it! From what I hear from others it is one that is hard to put down, might be tricky with a 10 month old, but still keen to try!!

I haven’t read any of Jojo Moyes work yet, but feel I may have been missing out!  The book was first published in 2012 and has been made into a film. I would be interested to watch the film, but definitely want to read the book first! Sometimes films don’t quite match the books, and I don’t want to have an image of it all in my head before I read it! Do you prefer watching the films first or reading the books? The synopsis of the book is as follows:

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.

I purchased my paperback copy from Amazon, it is currently in their 3 for £10 deal. You can also pick it up for the Kindle there if that is your preferred reading method!

I will write my thoughts for this book in a post on Monday 26th September, am looking forward to hearing your thoughts and sharing the book with you!

Happy reading 🙂 x

Me before you
