February’s Book of the Month!

February’s BotM is Me Before You by Jojo Moyes

After reading this book I can certainly see why it’s been receiving so much praise! This book is totally worth its hype and is so much more than just chick-lit. This is the incredibly moving story of a quadriplegic man who wishes to end his life legally in Switzerland and his carer the warm and likeable Lou who is on a race against time to show Will the beauty in life to make him change his mind before it’s too late. This was just such a beautiful, controversial, thought provoking and moving book, I read a lot of fantastic books this month but this one is one that really stands out to me and will be an all-time favourite for years to come. You can check out my full review here.
