Teenage Fiction Author, Emily henry, writes a funny and predictable easy read for the summer vibes.
It’s based on Augustus Everett is an acclaimed author of literary fiction who apparently had the hots for January Andrews. January writes best selling romances whole Augustus kills of his entire cast so their tastes in lit are far from similar.
Little did they know, the next three months, they’d be living in neighboring beach houses. Both broke and suffering writer’s block.
Until, one hazy evening, one thing leads to another and they strike a deal Augustus spends the summer writing something happy; January pens the next Great American Novel. She takes him on field trips worthy of any rom-com montage, and he takes her to interview surviving members of a backwoods death cult. Everyone will finish their book and they will not fall in love. Ha!
We are warning you now. This is no ordinary chick-lit. A teenage fictional background would make anyone worry that you are going to read something super hormonal. Surprisingly. this is not the case at all. Henry writes the book in a friendly, fast paced and witty tone which adults can enjoy. If your not the romantic type then we wouldn’t suggest this book but there is a side of us that wants to suggest it to get the inner romance out of you. You will need your tissues for this, seriously.
In the midst of the antics going on, it’s probably needed. Don’t you agree? Beach Read was released on Amazon Kindle early May. When getting the notification, it was nice to have something to read in the summer sun. The themes of the book take on strong women working against dominant, successful men who wants to be matched in the same respect as a writer. Although she has title of best seller, January she lacks positivity. Whereas, Augustus is the typical bad relationship type that doesn’t ever take anything seriously (only his work). They both balance off each other well and this makes them so suited. Henry also draws the light-hearted, flirty banter in but allows herself to draw on their background through these traits so they seem more realistic. The focus of the overall novel was about them falling in love so don’t over think any other themes that arise when reading or the way it has been worded.
