Beach Read by Emily Henry

Hello bookish friends!  Today it’s my pleasure to be sharing my #WhatsTurningMyPages review of Beach Read by Emily Henry with you! ✨




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…


My Thoughts


I was SO excited to start Beach Read – I’ve been on a bit of a thrilller drive for a while and the promise of a good rom-com was too much to turn down.  I wasn’t disappointed.  This book is rom-com gold – and there is STEAM aplenty!


Written with electrifying sass (and not in the slightest bit slushy or gooey); I found it so hard to put Beach Read down.  With hilarious and at times side-splittingly funny and awkward banter, Beach Read really is just the ticket for the misery in which we currently find ourselves.


Being an aspiring writer myself, I was enthralled by the fact that both Gus and January were writers and fascinated by their individual journeys towards their finished pieces.  This really gave the story some flesh and credibility; setting it apart from a typical summer romance.


So friends, I’m happy to admit that my name is Mrs Cooke and I am in love with Augustus Everett… and what?!  Trust me… you will be too… 😉


Smart, sexy and dripping with sparkling wit, Beach Read is this year’s essential Summer book!


Beach is out on 09 July in paperback and you can preorder it here .  My thanks go to Georgia Taylor and Viking Books for my finished copy and also to Aperol Spritz for my fabulous hamper 🍹🧡

Until next time! Have a wonderful day!
