Me Before You by Jojo Moyes

I listened to Me Before You by Jojo Moyes a while ago, and am thinking I will listen again, as I recently heard they are making it into a movie which will release in June 2016!

They had nothing in common until love gave them everything to lose . . .

Louisa Clark is an ordinary girl living an exceedingly ordinary life—steady boyfriend, close family—who has barely been farther afield than their tiny village. She takes a badly needed job working for ex–Master of the Universe Will Traynor, who is wheelchair bound after an accident. Will has always lived a huge life—big deals, extreme sports, worldwide travel—and now he’s pretty sure he cannot live the way he is.

Will is acerbic, moody, bossy—but Lou refuses to treat him with kid gloves, and soon his happiness means more to her than she expected. When she learns that Will has shocking plans of his own, she sets out to show him that life is still worth living.

A Love Story for this generation and perfect for fans of John Green’s The Fault in Our StarsMe Before You brings to life two people who couldn’t have less in common—a heartbreakingly romantic novel that asks, What do you do when making the person you love happy also means breaking your own heart?

You may think I take the easy way out sharing snippets from other places online, but honestly I can’t say it better than Amazon or the author, herself!

I loved this book.  I loved the characters and was truly sad when it ended.  I get so caught up with characters in books, and literally feel like I lost a friend when the book is over!

There are a lot of great quotes from this book.

There is a sequel called After You, which I have not read or listened to yet, but plan to!

Do you have any books to recommend?
