To My Angel Baby 

To My Angel Baby

I never got to hold you, to smell your beautiful baby smell. I never got to hear your heartbeat or feel you move around inside of me.

Me before You

I have just finished this book.  Wow! I love to read but recently I just haven’t had the chance. I received this book as a Christmas present and I just could not put it down!

It tells the story of a young man who was involved in an accident, resulting in him becoming a quadriplegic and his carer. 

This book is a web of emotions. At some points I sat in tears and at others amazed at what us humans are capable of. It tells the story of pure human love and the sacrifices we will make to those most important to us.

I would definitely recommend this book. Have you already read it? What were your thoughts?
