Beach Read by Emily Henry  –  A Book Review

Here’s the thing about writing Happily Ever Afters: it helps if you believe in them.

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.

Beach Read, much like it’s name, is not at all what I anticipated it to be. Neither did I anticipate loving this book as hardly as I came too when I read the first couple of chapters.

Thrillers and KU Romance Books – My August Reading Plans

Thrillers and KU Romance Books – My August Reading Plans

For most of June and July, my reading life was really dry and boring. In the last week or so, I’ve been adding way too many books to my to-read pile. But I’ve rationalised my recklessness because it’s made me excited to pick up books again.

A lot of those books added to my to-read pile were thrillers. I think because we’re getting closer to October my priorities seem to be shifting and I just want to read more spooky things! I also started a Kindle Unlimited subscription because my library is closed. Now I desperately need to make use of that subscription.
