March reading: Me Before You

“Hey @BetteMidler I know it’s past your bedtime but if you’re still up and reading this send nudes #justkidding” – @kimkardashian

Like my mother always told me, readers are leaders. And since this bad bitch is aiming for world domination, I’ve got my public library card handy & ready to go.

After seeing this movie trailer and having the #feels, I opted to give the novel a look before the movie.

In my humble opinion, book reviews are v. boring 99% of the time. So instead of summarizing the whole damn plot (you can def read this wikipedia page for that) I’m going to give my highlights: Short. Sweet. To the point.

Setting
English countryside

Characters-
Will Traynor: early 30’s, previously adventurous & wealthy businessman, but now a quadriplegic living with his parents in the countryside.

Louisa Clark: twenty-something quirky woman who abruptly takes a position as Will’s caretaker in order to financially support her whole family.

Top 3 words to describe it
British, sweet, sad
(that description reminds me of Jude Law in The Holiday. Ey, anyone?)

Favorite quote
“Some mistakes… Just have greater consequences than others. But you don’t have to let the result of one mistake be the thing that defines you.”

Why should you read it?

  • Easy read.
  • Hello, English countryside. That setting alone gets me hooked.
  • Unconventional love story.
  • Duh, it’s being made into a movie. So this is a necessity to your reading list.

 

Let me know in the comments below what you thought of the movie trailer/ novel if you decide to go all in!
