Book Lovers

As usual, another great read by Emily Henry. While I typically enjoy reading to escape reality, her books have always made me appreciate real life. The simple joys and tiny acts people do for each other always make me think about people in my life and to not take anything for granted.

Overall I loved the big city characters running into each other in a small town called Sunshine Falls where everybody knows everything about the people in it. How it forced them to slow down, appreciate everything around them and put themselves first. The ending was also very relatable to me in how you can love the right person at the wrong time. I especially loved that while our main characters knew they were IT, their circumstances kept them apart and they made logical decisions despite their feelings towards each other.

This book was amazing and I love that all of her books give me the same appreciation of life and feel-good (but not forced) endings. The writing style/language between all three of her books are also so unique. While they are similar in the sense that they all have some connection to books (readers, authors and agents) there are also major differences. In People We Meet On Vacation, the story bounces around between the past and present. Beach Read has a more stagnant feel with the majority of the book taking place in one location. Book Lovers was super fun because it gives us a story within a story as we get bits and pieces of the novel that Norah and Charlie work on together in a story book-like town.

All-in-all, this book was a must read. I may be biased and read pretty much anything Henry writes, but try reading this book and not falling in love with Charlie Lastra. You’ll see…
