Goodreads Monday: Me Before You by Jojo Moyes

My very first pick for Goodreads Monday is:

Me Before You by Jojo Moyes


Goodreads Synopsis

Louisa Clark is an ordinary young woman living an exceedingly ordinary life—steady boyfriend, close family—who has never 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, Me 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?

I got this book through my dear Twitter friend last November or early December.
I wanted to read this book so badly, but for some reason this book has been sitting on my bookshelf since then.
It’s probably the controversy and the backlash the book and the film have gotten from Disabled communities that make me a bit hesitant, but I think I’ll pick this one up next month. I’m saying this because I want you all to hold me accountable and remind me not to put it off any longer! (because I can be such a procrastinator… )

I’m pretty certain that most of you have already read this book, what are your thoughts?
Let me know in the comments below and Happy Monday to you all! 😀
