Book Lovers is a hilarious story that will have you chuckling all the way through. Emily Henry taps into the headspace of the everyday person, deftly portraying insecurities and problems. The main protagonist may be short on self-esteem and very complex, but she has more than enough sass to make up for it. She isn’t backward in coming forward, which can lead to some awkward, yet funny moments. 

The characters are well defined, and the use of dialogue is both believable and entertaining. The plot develops at a good pace and the reader is instantly engrossed in the unravelling of feelings and emotions. The relationship between Nora and Charlie serves as the bedrock of the story, you can’t help but want them to be together.

This story is a welcome ray of sunshine, a little lightness to brighten up dark days. I’d say readers need to look no further and grab yourself a copy.  I highly recommend it. 

Thank you, Beauty and Lace, and Penguin Books Ltd for the opportunity to read and review.
