BOOK CLUB TAKEOVER: Angie from 'Beauty She Wrote'

My name is Angie, I'm a nail varnish hoarder and borderline crazy cat lady (who am I kidding, I'm well over borderline!) and I blog over at, which is a blog full of hauls of my impulse purchases, posts about my girl crushes, outfits that I deem acceptable for public consumption and whatever else drops into my brain that I think my lovely followers would enjoy :) So come on over and visit, we're a friendly bunch over there!

My favourite book is a highly contested title as I've been reading avidly since I was four years old! And I've read so many amazing books that got me hooked and made it so I couldn't put them down, but one book that soared above all of the rest of them as soon as I started reading it was Me Before You by Jojo Moyes.
I love this book because it's both happy and sad, funny and heartbreaking and completely inspirational. The characters were so original because, as much as I loved them, they also frustrated me at times and I would find myself thinking ''No! Why would you do this?'', because I was thinking of them as real people! As much as I've read so many amazing books, it's very rare that I get sucked into the characters like that, which is testament to Jojo Moyes' excellent writing.
As for the ending, well I won't spoil it, naturally, but safe to say it was the first time that I was literally sobbing at a book, I've had the odd tears in my eyes when it came to books before but these were full on, chest-heaving sobs! 
Don't let that put you off though, the tears were both happy and sad tears and I promise, if you read this book you WILL love it!
My review
This story centres around Lou Clark, a girl whose day-to-day life is mundane, but enjoyable for her.
But her life changes when she loses her job at The Buttered Bun tea shop and has to go and work for Will Traynor, who was in a motorcycle accident which took away his desire to live.
He pushes everyone away and lives a joyless life....until Lou comes along!
She bursts into his world and as well as her changing his life, he also helps change hers for all time.
There's not much else I can, or want to, tell you after that, I wouldn't want to spoil any of the plot at all because I think it's such a beautiful book with such faultless writing that it needs to be experienced first hand to do it any justice whatsoever.
