TWO WRITERS, ONE HOLIDAY. A ROMCOM WAITING TO HAPPEN…
January is a hopeless romantic who narrates her life like she’s the lead in a blockbuster movie.
Gus is a serious literary type who thinks true love is a fairy-tale.
But January and Gus have more in common than you’d think:
They’re both broke.
They’ve got crippling writer’s block.
And they need to write bestsellers before summer ends.
The result? A bet to swap genres and see who gets published first.
The risk? In telling each other’s stories, their worlds might be changed entirely…
Set over one sizzling summer, Beach Read is a witty love story that will make you laugh a lot, cry a little and fall head over heels. For fans of The Flat Share and If I Never Met You.
Emily Henry writes stories about love and family for both teens and adults. She studied creative writing at Hope College and the New York Center for Art & Media Studies and now spends most of her time in Cincinnati, Ohio, and the part of Kentucky just beneath it.
WHAT DID I THINK
Writers doing what writers do, get away from it all, go to the beach if possible and write, but does that actually make you write? These two writers turn it into a competition and write the others genre, easy or not this makes for some fun reading and then you throw a romance into the pot and you have a nice summer read for when your laying on the beach.
I sometimes wanted to shout at these two as there is a lot of wasted moments spent wondering will they or won’t they get together and what is he hiding. It all becomes clear and I will leave you to read it and see if you got it right.
