Beach Read by Emily Henry
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Hands down 5 stars.
What did I love about this book? The vivid characters, the messy history, the messy present, the slow, slow burn, the hate to love done really well. The main characters, the side character, the setting. The character flaws, the character growths.
I don’t know what I was thinking expecting this to be a fluffy rom-com full of rainbows and sunshine, but what I got was was deep and dark and messy and emotional. And maybe it hit a little too close to home in a lot of ways, making this book, the entire experience, so damn relatable.
This is a book I will definitely want to reread, like a favorite movie. Absolutely one of my top reads of 2020 so far, if not the top read.
I predict this will boot The Hating Game from many most-beloved romance lists, and it’ll be well-deserved. I’ll also definitely be watching out for more from Emily Henry.
