Inner Beauty Friday - Book Club!


It's Friday and time for Book Club!  Once again I am linking up with Heather at Blonde...Undercover Blonde for Book Club.

This week I read "Me Before You " by Jojo Moyes
Me Before You

Here's the synopsis from "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."

What I thought:  This was a really nice story, and one I felt was actually realistic.  I mean Will being a Quadriplegic isn't nice, and OF COURSE he has money, but other than that I felt it was really great story about complex friendships and family connections.  This is a good story a bit of a sad ending, but in the end it's a lot like life. 



  1. Sounds interesting, might pick it up. Though I don't like sad endings :P

  2. I absolutely LOVED this book! And the author just came out with another which I can't wait to read!

    1. I saw she has a couple of books - it's always good to find a new author!
