    A 4.5 star read!

    January Andrews is an author of romance novels. She’s had a lot of success in her first novels, but is now battling writer’s block. She’s also faced a lot of change in her life recently, including the death of her father and the breakup of a long-term relationshipFurthermore, she learns of her father’s secret life with another woman in another town - North Bear Shores. In fact, he leaves his cottage in North Bear Shores to January in his estate. Confused, broke, grieving and with a looming literary deadline, January leaves her home for the summer in hopes of writing her next novel, and cleaning out the cottage so that she can sell it. On her first evening at the cottage she is re-introduced to her next door neighbour, Augustus “Gus” Everett, whom she recognizes from her college days. Gus is an author of literary fiction and is in the process of getting a divorce. Like January, he is also broke and battling writer’s block. The two agree to try something new - January will write a book within the literary fiction genre and Gus will attempt to write romance. While one can surmise that a romance between the two will develop, this book is about so much more. Through a series of field trips intended to guide the other in their writing, the couple learn more about each other and about themselves in the process. Each carries some significant “baggage” that needs to be addressed in order for the couple to begin healing individually, and to come together. The book kept me engaged throughout. I felt connected to the characters and sensitive to their pain and insecurities. It reinforces my belief that it’s important not to judge others until you have heard, and understand, their story. I highly recommend this book to those that enjoy either contemporary romance or general fiction. Thanks to Edelweiss and Berkley Publishing for the ARC of this book in exchange for the honest review provided here.

    A swoonworthy story!!

    Don't be fooled by the cover or the blurb of this book. Beach Read by Emily Henry was so much more than a romance. It's such a deep rooted story about love, loss, life, and everything in between. The tale begins with the heroine contemplating her perfect life and what went wrong. She's broke, she no longer has the boyfriend, nor the loving parents, and she's lost her writing inspiration. January finds herself at a gorgeous lake house that once belonged to her deceased father. January discovers that her neighbor is non other than Augustus Everett, her nemesis from college who also happens to be a writer. Once again, they're butting heads. Gus proposes a bet of sorts to swap writing genres and see who can finish a book first. January and Gus embark on these research road trips, where they slowly open up to each other. Soon, conversation between the two becomes an easy going thing as they get to know the other on a deeper level. Two slightly broken people who have loved and lost, learn to care for the other. January being at her most vulnerable brings her closer to Gus. Beach Read was such a swoonworthy story that will open your mind and your heart to endless possibilities. Emily Henry has warmed my heart with her writing and these wonderful characters. Sign me up for her next book please! Must read 🏖

    Loved It!

    I really loved this book! It wasn't at all what I thought it would be ...it was so much more. It wasn't just a light fluffy rom com, it dealt with some much heavier issues and I loved every minute of it. This was the first book I've read by this author, but I will definitely read more.

    Emotionally explosive and loving

    This book is a feelings bomb in all the best ways. I devoured it in less than sixteen hours—one break to sleep— and can't believe how many books in one this is. Part love story, part sexy romp, part identity deconstruction, part post-mortem, I recommend NOT reading "Beach Read" on the beach, for you'll surely sunburn. Read it tucked under a blanket in your coziest chair, and be sure to have a loved one nearby to help feed you so you don't have to stop reading.
