Book Review: Beach Read

Book Details:

  • Published Date: May 19, 2020
  • Author: Emily Henry
  • Genre: Fiction, Adult, Romance, Contemporary
  • Format: Kindle
  • Length: 380 pages
A romance writer who no longer believes in love and a literary writer stuck in a rut engage in a summer-long challenge that may just upend everything they believe about happily ever afters.

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.

A book, about books?! Count me in! I enjoyed this book!

This is my second book by Emily Henry and I can’t wait to read more books from her in the future.

This book is about January, an author with writers block and Gus, a rival author of hers since college. They cross paths again years later due to personal events in their lives. They make a friendly, rival bet about writing books that are different from what they would usually write and go on all these “dates” and the rest is history.

I loved seeing the character development in this book and seeing both January and Gus grow from the things that hurt them. Of course this book has a happy ending, but I enjoyed the ending. This book had my attention from beginning to end and that’s something I can throughly appreciate.
