Calling all book lovers! If you’re looking for the perfect summer read, then look no further than Beach Read by Emily Henry. This contemporary romance follows Augustus Everett, an acclaimed author of literary fiction, and January Andrews, a bestselling romance writer. When January pens a happily ever after, Augustus kills off his entire cast. Despite their differences, they find themselves living in neighboring beach houses and struggling with writer’s block. To get out of their creative ruts, they strike a deal: Augustus will write something happy and January will pen the next Great American Novel. What follows is a summer-long challenge that may just upend everything they believe about happily ever afters.
Beach Read is a feel-good book that offers its readers an escape from their own heads while imparting a lesson or two. January and Augustus have solid characteristics with amazing character development. Their characters represent two kinds of different people, one with a happier outlook and the other with seriousness, bleakness and some sense of intensity – looking at the world not with pessimism but with realistic eyes. The book also highlights the notions on women’s fiction and how it should be valued just as much as any kind of literature. The slow burn romance was played out well and the characters’ banters and palpable sexual tension give this book so much color.
Beach Read is the perfect summer read and will be loved by many. It’s fun, sweet, tug at your heartstrings, with relatable characters and have an awesome setting. Get your copy on Amazon, Book Depository or Book Of The Month and join in on the conversation! #BeachRead #EmilyHenry #BerkleyRomance
