BOOK REVIEW: Beach Read by Emily Henry

Release Date: May 19th, 2020
Genre: Romance / Fiction
Published by: Berkley
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️💫 My Goodreads Rating


BOOK BLURB: 

Augustus Everett is an acclaimed author of literary fiction. January Andrews writes bestselling romance. When she pens a happily ever after, he kills off his entire cast.

They're polar opposites.

In fact, the only thing they have in common is that for the next three months, they're living in neighboring beach houses, broke, and bogged down with writer's block.

Until, one hazy evening, one thing leads to another and they strike a deal designed to force them out of their creative ruts: Augustus will spend the summer writing something happy, and January will pen the next Great American Novel. She'll take him on field trips worthy of any rom-com montage, and he'll take her to interview surviving members of a backwoods death cult (obviously). Everyone will finish a book and no one will fall in love. Really. 

💛

MY THOUGHTS:

Every once in a while we're lucky enough to find a book that makes us fall in love with the characters and reminds us that LOVE is beautiful...even when the world feels pretty shitty.
I fell in love with this book.  
I could not put it down.
I actually ran out of post-it notes to mark the passages that I want to go back to!

But how could I not love it?  Let me give you 5 reasons to love this book:

  1. January is a hopeless romantic and Gus is a "life is shit" kind of guy. But not everyone is just one thing, is it? And as they start knowing each other, the layers start coming off, and they might discover that they are not so different after all...
  2. January writes romance novels and she believes that Gus thinks his writing is superior...
  3. The sarcasm...oh, that twisted humor and endless eye rolls that make sparks fly...
  4. Everyone has secrets, even the people we've loved all our lives...
  5. Finally, the love scenes, they were not so steamy, but were perfectly written.
🎧
Which song would I pair this book with?  COMING AROUND AGAIN by Carly Simon 

"I know nothing stays the same
But if you're willing to play the game
It's coming around again
So don't mind if I fall apart
There's more room in a broken heart

And I believe in love
But what else can I do
I'm so in love with you"


I do hope you get to read this book, and when you do, please let me know what you thought of it!

Happy reading!
