Goodreads Summary:
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

My Thoughts:
So this was a tearjerker. The movie is currently in the making with Emilia Clarke and Sam Claffin as Louisa and Will. I think they are perfectly casted and really hope the movie will do the book justice.

I read the book in one go and cried multiple times. The cover suggest this book is a happy, fluffy, romantic story, but it isn’t. It is a more serious book that makes you think about some important subjects. The characters are likeable and realistic and I really enjoyed the writing: it is strait forward, no medical jargon etc.

Just read this book, you won’t regret it!

” You only get one life. It’s actually your duty to live it as fully as possible ”
