PS I can’t wait to start reading Lena Dunham’s Not That Kind of Girl.
A few weeks ago, I went to the bookstore on a whim. I went in with a list of books I wanted to get, but a couple were out of stock and a few didn’t look as interesting as I thought they would be. I walked around the store probably four times picking up different books before stumbling on a table with Me Before You. I have lost track of how many times this book has been recommended to me, so into my pile it went.
I highly, highly recommend it. Definitely tops the list of great books I’ve read this year. In the book, the main character takes a job as a caregiver and companion for a quadriplegic. The story is wonderful, and sad, but still… wonderful. I will say that everyone told me I was going to cry… and I didn’t. (Probably because I kept expecting to burst into tears… I just never did.) Some parts really hit me hard and the ending was a tough swallow.
Have you read this? Any other books you recommend?
