I picked up Emily Henry’s Beach Read from my local library on a total whim yesterday. The premise—two very different writers (with a shared college past) stuck in neighboring lakehouses, who forge a plan to rid themselves of writer’s block—sounded like too much fun. And I really need some fun.
Beach Read is my favorite kind of fun, in fact: skillfully drawn, fast-paced and fresh, and sexy as hell. Whip-smart, funny dialogue had me flipping pages deep into the night. I gulped it down in one sitting (despite the fact that I’m a mom and it was a school night). I’m so happy to have found a new (to me only: she’s a New York Times bestseller) author to enjoy.
