"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. But as the summer stretches on, January discovers a gaping plot hole in the story she's been telling herself about her own life, and begins to wonder what other things she might have gotten wrong, including her ideas about the man next door"--… (mere)

Zero Stars! Another entry in my quest for a readable light summer book. This was the worst one yet. Sloppy writing, glaring editorial mistakes, and two so-called protagonists who were just not likeable. The search continues

I read “Beach Read,” by Emily Henry based upon a recommendation from someone I trusted. Unfortunately, the book was disappointing.

The book was very slow to get into. I almost abandoned it about a fourth of the way in, but I continued since I had invested time into it already. It took me two weeks to trudge through the book, and that is a long time since I usually finish a book in a few days.

The characters were poorly developed. I felt I knew January somewhat, but I never felt like I had a clue as to who Gus was. His character flip-flopped several times with no consistency whatsoever. January was such a wuss, always running away from any uncomfortable situation, never standing strong.

My greatest issue with the book was it was highly predictable. After just a few chapters I knew exactly what was going to happen. Once Gus and January met, I instantly knew they would renew their college rivalry, be mad at each other for a while, start to like each other, fall in love, and get married. The plot was too predictable to enjoy the book. Beach Read is the stereotypical romance trope. The book also contained too many coincidental occurrences. January just happens to move into a house next door to her college nemesis. He just happens to show up at the same book club.

So boring. Skip this one and save your money and time. ( )

Definitely more of a 4.5 but I’m rounding up.

CW: talk of the existence of a cult in the past and it’s destructive end; cancer, death of a parent

I knew I was gonna love this book when I first saw the cover; I just did. It has the two main characters reading books on a beach and that’s the best kind of afternoon I can imagine, so I knew in my heart that this was going to be lovely. And maybe it was not as “fun” as it’s marketing seems to make it out to be, but it was so much more than I expected.

The writing in this story is just so beautiful and charming that I was completely lost in it and didn’t put it down except for very short breaks. The conversations are insightful, the banter is excellent and even the sad parts are so full of feeling that I was quite emotional through most of it, while also having a lot of fun. I was actually dreading what would come up when the romance genre or women’s fiction is talked about (the genres get enough snootiness to deal with irl), but I was so glad that it never happened and that any discussions about book genres were much more thoughtful and sweet. I also quite enjoyed the setting of the book at a beach/college town, where neighbors can communicate through windows and decks and most locals know each other. However, the one reason I didn’t like the book being perceived as a romcom is because a huge part of it is about dealing with grief and I thought the author handled it with a lot of sensitivity, but it also means that the book tends to be more introspective and solemn than a comedy.

I really loved both the characters of January and Gus, and I think it’s been a while since I’ve had a situation where I couldn’t decide who I liked more. They are the perfect embodiments of the grumpy and sunshine trope, and I thought the author did a wonderful job giving us context for why they are the way they are, and also ensuring that we get to know the depths of their heart. I related to both of them on different levels but particularly with Janie’s belief in true love, romance and the power of happy romantic books in sweeping us away and making us forget the many real life problems we are dealing with. Gus’s belief that no one can love him because of the way he is, is very heartbreaking and I related to that feeling as well sometimes. But I also liked that the author made his character grumpy but an overall nice guy and not letting him fall into the the very common trope of the guy being an asshole because of a sad backstory. They both have issues but they work through them, get to know each other, form a sweet friendship and support each other in their writing and I just loved the development of their relationship from the beginning to the end.

To conclude, I read a lot of amazing romance novels all the time but this book felt very satisfying in a way that I can’t articulate. And I won’t deny that I’m a probably a bit biased because both the main characters are authors. If you are looking for a novel which has a nice slow burn love story, great characters and is more on the quiet and reflective side, I think you’ll love this book. I’m feeling very happy after finishing it and I needed that. ( )

January has been left a house in Michigan by her late father. She goes up to live in it when she is broke and still is working on her current novel--or rather not working on it. Her next door neighbor is Gus Everett, her rival in college. After taking potshots at each other, they decide to have a contest where he writes a rom-com and she writes a literary novel and see which one can sell theirs first. In the course of their writing, truths come out.

I loved this book! I loved January. I could relate to her as she and Gus have their discussions at the end of their days of writing. I understood her thoughts. I also loved Gus. He is similar to January but his thoughts took on a darker tone. Once January can get him to open up, he reveals a lot to January--things she never expected. I did appreciate their openness when their thoughts and explanations came out. It is rare to have that much communication between characters. His explanation when they went to New Eden was wonderful and swoon-worthy.

I loved the other characters--Pete, Maggie, even Sonya. They are quirky (not Sonya). I was glad when Sonya made January listen to her. So much was said and pain was let go eventually. I wish January's mother had been more open with her earlier so her father's death would not have been a shock.

I liked the humor. There were times I was laughing out loud as I pictured these scenes. The dialog was snappy and snarky (reminds me of the dialog in The Maltese Falcon). This is one of the top books I have read this year. It is wonderful watching a curmudgeon fall in love. ( )
