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.

Me Before You is now one of my favorite books. I highly, highly, recommend you pick this one up.

I was completely committed to our main character, Lou's, story and Will’s too. I found Moye’s writing to be absolute perfection. With everything going on in my life right now, for me to feel a complete escape with a book is not something I was expecting.

It was impossible to put down, seriously. If it wasn’t the start of the semester I would have stayed up all night and finished it. I started this book on Wednesday night and finished late Thursday night. All of Wednesday it was the only thing that my thoughts kept drifting to. Now after finishing it, it's still what my mind keeps going back to.

If you pick up this book, which you without a doubt should, be prepared to be completely immersed and have your mind belong to only the story. I’ve never really felt this way about a book before. It’s a new experience with reading that just validates how incredibly special books can be.

Trying to form coherent thoughts on this book is impossible. All I know is I can't stop thinking about it and that Me Before You will stick with me for decades to come.

It’s like I’m not really sure how I’m suppose to feel and maybe that is the point. Maybe there’s not suppose to be answers to everything, even the important things.

Thank you so much to Briana! Seriously you have the absolute best taste in books! Thank you! :)
