    OH MYYYYY GOODNESSSSSS Finally literature gods heard my prayers that I’ve been reuesting to read a fantastic romance that I’ve been craving for so long I need something heart wrenching shaking me to the core help me feel everything at the same time happiness angst joy forgiveness enjoyment resentment hurting Yes I LOVE THIS BOOK SO MUCH I want to scream it Oh thankfully I already did I have to add that This is not beach read This is GLUED READ You don’t want to end it and you don’t want to stop reading it so you carry your book at everywhere as if it’s one of your internal organs I expected to read something chic lit soft sweet story but instead of that I got an amazing fiction a remarkable romance juggles between so many things at the same time from friendship regrets cancer betrayal dysfunctional families and their secrets enemies to friends and friends to lovers rivalry between the authorsThe things I loved mostly Sarcastic but so smart entertaining uniue dialogues between January and Gus The soul crushing tear jerker heart shattering intense father and daughter relationship Captivating the story telling from the beginning I couldn’t put down this book I actually devour the pages maybe I accidentally licked my kindle but its screen looks dustless and I’m the grossest person right now I couldn’t stop reading January and Gus’ growing attraction their struggles to open up and their scares not to get hurt their stupid and childish actions towards each other Yes I had some many “awww” and sighing moments My husband thought I was secretly ordering cases of French wines because I smiled so much and I got appointment from the surgeon because it glued to my face and I’m looking like worse version of Joker right now I cannot stop A witty plot Two writers were nemesis from college now neighboring beach houses They both have their deadlines for their books but they’re suffering from writer’s big bold scary blog Did it ever happen to me? Nope after drinking words pour out from my mind like torrent but next day editing them when you are sober is the most painful experience Gus thinks that HEA doesn’t exist but he can push himself to write about it and January could also write some high rated complex fiction instead of swoony romances So they bet and replace their places but for inspiration to do that they have to spend time together by experiencing the shiny and dark sides of the life That means January will take him to carnival romantic beach and field trips to watch the sunset as Gus takes him to hike at the graveyard or arrange an interview with a grieving woman who lost her death cult member sister See it was impossible not to get interested and hooked from the beginning Characterization January and Gus seems like polar opposites One pessimist who had problematic childhood with his abusive father and one optimist Pollyanna who loves to see from the brighter side even though her childhood was affected by her mother’s big C hanging over her head like the Sword of Damocles They are suffering from loneliness and their wrong choices about their love lives Actually they have so much in common and don’t forget THE SIZZLING CHEMISTRY and UNDENIABLY GROWING ATTRACTIONLAST PARTS OF THE BOOK Oh boy Please prepare your napkins paper towels anything to dry your non stop dripping tears I’m not giving spoiler but Ms Henry is an emotional torturer knows exactly how to sing to our hearts how to break into pieces and magically gathers each pieces and heals you with soul brushing poignant words She is a heart whisperer She knows how to melt your heartOVERALL This is not only one of my favorite books of this year but it is also gonna be my all time favorite romance books I’m so happy my great written romantic fiction craving is overSpecial thanks to NetGalley and Berkley Publishing for sharing this year’s one of the best books’ ARC COPY with me in exchange my honest review And Emily Henry thank you for reaching my heart with your effective soul touching talented workbloginstagramfacebooktwitter

    I did what any reasonable adult woman would do when confronted with her college rival turned next door neighbor I dove behind the nearest bookshelf I really needed this book I didn't realize how much I needed it until I was giggling along with all the awkwardness and banter and feeling like I'd been taken away from the dark dreariness of this lockdown It's exactly what it seems to be a very cute sweet romanceBeach Read is a warm summery story about a romance writer January Andrews and a vair vair serious literary writer Augustus Everett who have been long time writing rivals ever since they attended college together They find themselves in neighboring beach houses for the summer each trying to write their next novel whilst doling out perfect comebacks to each other What could possibly happen?As they get to know each other a little better they decide to strike a deal Augustus will write a happily ever after and January will turn her talents to the serious world of literary fiction Whoever sells their manuscript first winsI really enjoyed the dynamic between January and Gus It's not uite lovehate because the author stops short of really making them tear into each other but there's a lot of tension created by their competitive history The banter is funny; a little snarky at times but good natured Emily Henry has also perfected that blend of broody and sweet with Gus it turns out Romance love interests can be both darkly mysterious and not assholes Who'da thought?The story is told entirely from January's POV which I personally like I prefer single perspective romance novels because I think a good portion of the tension comes from not knowing what's going on inside the other person's headI will say that I might have been critical of some aspects of this if I was in a different mindset right now While I expected the novel to be cute and a little cheesy it is a bit cheesy and sentimental than I usually prefer I would have been happier without things like this I don't need snowflakes He kissed me As long as there's January I also expected it to be a little saucy lol There’s sex scenes for sure but they’re cute and kinda dorky rather than tense and exciting I know that a lot of people prefer that; I just thought the whole competing authors dynamic was pretty hot and would have liked to see that played upon a bit And I loved the jokey banter I just sorta wanted them to stop the jokey banter DURING sexBut fuck it This was such a heartwarming feel good book I had a good time that's all I can sayFacebook | Instagram

    ohhhh mythis was a goddamn delight i know i’m surprised too another romance book that i loved? unheard of tbh i can’t even really explain my change of heart maybe the turbulence of the year 2020 has softened me to the idea of cliche tropes and consistent Happily Ever Afters maybe i’ve always been a suishy hearted romantic in denial or maybe i’m just finally learning how to pick titles that tickle my fancybut i’m not really that invested in justifying my newfound love of literary love i’m too busy having the time of my life beach read was soft and sweet with lots of flirty banter mixed with family dramadiscussions and research about CULTS yes u read that right there was a good amount of purse wine drinking and a killer second chance romanceand boy did i enjoy it imo emily henry managed to strike a great balance between beachy summertime fun thoughtful convos about grief and childhood trauma as someone who loves the wholesome romances but also gravitates towards books about dark sad shit this hit a LOT of buttons for me i’ll say it again cultsi know that this has been getting an extraordinary amount of buzz and i’m just a romance newbie who probably doesn’t have the cred to say what exactly is top tier however as someone with too specific taste most of the time this definitely got the job done for me u might like it too? or not in which case gus everett for meeeeeeeee

    This was a fun read but just that At least for me I read the synopsis and I was so excited it sounded like a romance I NEEDED to read I mean the main characters are both authors that write totally opposite genres and they develop sort of a enemies to lovers relationship? I WAS SO IN But sadly I found it a little boringI may be the exception here I've only read GREAT reviews for this one Maybe it is because I'm not that into romance stories? SURE I love romance IN my stories just not so much if it's the main theme But sometimes it can happens that a romance books sweeps me away and makes me swoon Examples To all the boys I've loved before The Hating Game Red White Royal BlueSo yes there are a few romance books that I love and I'm always trying to find the next one to add to that list and I was hoping this was it But it was notNevertheless it wasn't bad I really enjoyed some parts and I was rooting for the main characters And I really liked the dare So January is a romance author and Gus is writes dark literary fiction and they dare each other to write the thing the other one usually writes That's the sinopsys and it sounded awesome It was kinda awesomeBut yeah I didn't like the book as much as everyone else The middle part dragged a bit to much and the way Gus handled the situation when things were getting hard was frustrating And it wasn't a good kind of frustration it was one that made me go ugh STOP Anyway everyone is loving this book so my opinion is an unpopular one EspañolEsta fue una lectura divertida pero sólo eso Por lo menos para mí Leí la sinopsis y estaba súper emocionada ¡sonaba como el romance ue necesitaba leer YA Es decir ¿los personajes principales son autores ue escriben géneros totalmente opuestos y van desarrollando una relación estilo enemies to lovers? SÍ DAME POR FAVOR Pero tristemente me terminó aburriendo un pocoCreo ue soy la excepción auí pues sólo he leído reseñas EXCELENTES de este libro Tal vez sea porue no me encantan los libros de romance Sí amo el romance DENTRO de las historias ue leo pero no me gusta mucho ue sea el tema central Eso sí a veces pasa ue uno ue otro libro de romance me toma por sorpresa y me enamora Ejemplos A todos los chicos de los ue me enamoré Cariño cuánto te odio Rojo Blanco y Sangre AzulAsí ue sí hay algunos pocos libros de romance ue amo y siempre estoy intentando encontrar el nuevo ROMANCE UE CLAU AMA para agregar a la lista Esperaba ue este lo fuera Pero noDe todos modos no estuvo mal Disfruté mucho de algunas partes y sí uería ue los personajes principales uedaran juntos ¡Y de verdad me gustó mucho el reto O sea January es autora de romance y Gus escribe ficción literaria muy oscura y se retan a escribir lo ue el otro suele escribir Esa es la sinopsis y sonaba increíble Sí lo fue un poco la verdad Pero sí al final este libro no me gustó tanto como a otros La parte de en medio se alargó mucho y me frustraba bastante cómo Gus manejaba la situación cuando las cosas se ponían difíciles Y no era una frustración de la buena era más como ugh ya basta Jajajaja En fin soy minoría auí todo el mundo está amando el libro

    “I’ve never met someone who is so perfectly my favorite person” I picked up Beach Read on a whim looking for a fun distraction to while away the day and found a couple my heart won’t soon forget Deeply moving and perfectly paced Beach Read is a love story riddled with infectiously snarky banter hiding behind a somewhat ironic title This emotionally adept read was everything I didn’t know I needed at this very momentUtilizing her engaging and clever wordplay Emily Henry brings readers into the lives of two very different writers There’s January Andrews a once optimist romance writer battling her own heart while slogging through a bout of writer’s block And then there’s Augustus Gus Everett a twice published literary author all broody and mysterious fighting creative demons of his own A mix of crappy circumstances and serendipity find January in a lake house for the summer and next door neighbors to her college rival Gus While there are some lust filled memories for her to conjure from college January knows behind that sexy evil grin of his grumpy Gus has never taken her writing seriously In an attempt to banish the writer’s block and prove they can write in each other’s respective genres a challenge ensues And it’s not your typical lovehate battle It’s a tit for tat sarcastic tease fest that made me laugh brought me to tears and ramped up the pitter patter of this optimist heart of mineHenry is masterful in her unraveling of both characters really getting down to the crux of who January and Gus are and importantly why Proving assumptions can be the inhibitor of joy And while this story is told entirely from January’s perspective a heady mix of her goading slipped secrets and admissions from the man himself provide a glimpse into the soul of lovable Gus His heartfelt musings to January are everything “Before that” Relatable raw and at times even a little awkward January and Gus together managed to chip off a chunk of my heart to call their own Witty exchanges paint the pages and provide the perfect counterbalance to the hurt in their apprehensive hearts Yet it’s the undeniable connection they share and the palpable tension clouding every nook and cranny around Gus and January that makes for such an unforgettable readThe title seems a bit ironic given Beach Read has substance or depth than it suggests Considering the author’s level of biting humor throughout the novel and her exploration of the stereotypes swirling around the romance and women’s fiction genre I assume this was purposeful And very well played If you pick up one love story this year make it Gus and January’s Thank you thank you thank you to Berkley Publishing for access to an advanced copy via NetGalley A book I'm labeling best of the best and purchasing for my collection of greats Here’s to hoping I can track down a signed copy ♥

    i need new letters to create new words because love is too small to encompass everything i am feeling about this booki have always enjoyed EHs diverse writing but i think she has really come into her own with this story there is so much i love about this i really have no idea where to begin the clever humour? the crackling chemistry between the two MCs? the tenderness with which heavy topics are discussed? the ease that i devoured the writing? the way i fell absolutely head over heels in love with this?i laughed i cried i swooned and i felt inspired so dont let the cover and title fool you this is so much than just a summer read its perfection on paper i am eternally grateful to berkley publishing for sending me this ARC↠ 5 stars

    Don't let the cover and blurb fool youThis ain't stereotypical chick lit And before anyone gets their feathers all ruffled at my use of the term chick litcalm down I actually picked this out as one of my Book of the Month picks this April because I thought it was chick lit And if you have read my reviews or followed me for any length of time this would surprise you as I have traditionally NEVER been drawn to those kinds of books Nothing against them they just never interested me But alas as I have mentioned in some reviews over the last couple years my tastes have changed a lot lately and I am reading all kinds of genres I never used to be interested in Personal growth? Maybe The fact that I am uickly approaching middle aged? Perhaps But I digress The blurb on this really interested me I thought it was going to be light and exactly what I needed to forget the world for a few hours And it was But it was also so much than that The two main characters here January and Gus were both going through some shit that felt real and nuanced There was a depth to them that was tangible And the setting while seemingly plucked straight out of a Nicholas Sparks book never felt contrived or cliche The romance and so many other elements in the book usually considered trope y in chick lit or women's fiction was written with a tongue in cheek hilarity that on one hand called itself out and on the other served to undercut any sense of the cliche I was really impressed with Emily Henry's writing and style I enjoyed her ability to flirt with the fourth wall and turn certain things on their head in a manner that made you laugh at it but also seriously consider it at the same time I also really enjoyed all the discussions on writing and the literarypopular culture jokes and references sprinkled throughout the story In short I loved every moment of this book and will definitely be reading from this author in the future
