Weekly Reads: Me Before You

This little beauty came in for me at the library after a very long hold waiting period, right before I was heading to Vegas with room only for my Nook.  Sadsies.  I'm excited to spend some quality time with Me Before You as soon as I get my final week of classes wrapped up.

The summary (from goodreads):
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.

I read JoJo Moyes' The Last Letter from Your Lover, and adored it.  When Jennifer wakes up in a hospital, she has no memory of her accident, or the last few years of her life with her husband.  When she finds a love letter from someone signed only as 'B', asking her to leave her husband, her world is turned even more upside down trying to figure out who she was prior to her accident.  This is a great love story with a mystery twist!
