Nora works as an agent for authors. Her most famous author had placed the setting of one of her most famous books in Sunshine Falls. One day Nora‘s sister decides that they should go on a sister trip there for 4 weeks. Once there, Nora meets an editor she has meet before and didn‘t like. Maybe things will change this time? And will Nora manage to relax for 4 weeks?
This book was perfect. Absolutely perfect. I don‘t think a book has ever made me laugh out loud so much. I cried in the last chapter the happiest of tears. Nora and Charlie fit together so well. As an older sister, I also related very much to Nora‘s relationship with her younger sister, Libby. The audiobook reader was incredible. Such great acting skills. I am going to buy this book from a real bookstore; it‘s only right considering the story!
Gotta love a rom-com centered around sarcastic editors, eccentric authors, cool siblings and a funky bookstore—written by someone who really loves those Hallmark movies. What fun!
Thanks for this perfect gift @Sleepswithbooks ! I was hoping to finish this in time to wish you a Happy National Friendship Day! 🤗❤️
This was fun…my second Henry book, and I‘m officially a fan. Nora is a 30ish literary agent in NY. At 20, she took care of her younger sister Libby when their mom died and has always needed to make sure she‘s happy and has what she needs. Before the birth of her third child, Libby plans a sisters‘ trip to NC to the small town that her favorite author (who happens to be one of Nora‘s clients) writes about. Libby provides a bucket list of things 🔻
A cute and slow romance with two unique protagonists (with the alpha female front and center) and their quirky ways… filling the void with their unconventional constant banter with humor filled to the brim. An additional side story about a lil mystery of the sister 👩🏻 ! I enjoyed the worlds colliding and the family members of each protagonist taking part. Much more enjoyable & meaningful than “people we meet on vacation”! Give this one a chance
My first Emily Henry! Fun and charming with well-developed characters. It played with tropes in a deliberate way that I enjoyed. I enjoyed the main romance, and also really enjoyed the different family relationships that were all so important to the plot. Additional points for the character conceit - New York Career Woman keeps having her boyfriends dump her for Whimsical Country Folk - being hilarious.
I love Emily Henry. This book was another summer holiday read and was just the ticket. Summer was crap this year so a book like this really is what was needed. Loved the characters, not too predictable, lots of heart and humour. Can‘t wait for her next one. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I downloaded Emily Henry‘s Book Lovers last week while I was sick with a sinus infection. It was the perfect distraction while I was feeling under the weather. I love books where the characters grow on me and I change my opinion of a character from the beginning to end. Quick easy read!
Nora Stephens' life is books—she‘s read them all—and she is not that type of heroine. Not the plucky one, not the laidback dream girl, and especially not the sweetheart.
+ cute comfort read
This is my third time reading this one, and I felt like I just immediately settled into it - so much comfort & care in this story.
Julia Whelan continues to be my number one audiobook narrator & this book continues to be my top pick by Henry. And really just a top book of all the books.
The moment I finished I just wanted to start it again.
I listed to this one as an audio book. I enjoyed the banter between Nora & Charlie. I loved Nora‘s sarcasm & I loved Charlie in general. I lived in NC for a while & so loved the small town story aspect (which could totally see & the Blue Ridge Mountains are absolutely beautiful). A quick, fun listen. Perfect for the beach but I‘m still a few weeks away before summer vacation. #bookspin book
Airport reading - don‘t know why but it‘s special ☺️
Trip to the US was waaaay too short, feels like I just got here. Heading back to Germany already 🛫🇩🇪
Couldn‘t really concentrate on any real reading with all the family time going on so I started re-reading this book that was fun the first time and is more fun the second time 🤓 the banter and snark are a delight!! 💫
After a very jammed pack day . Meetings for me in the morning, followed by a very busy afternoon of Museum, IKEA shopping, Playdium, hotel pool and waterside the kids and the adults are all ready for a calm night and tucked into bed with books.
The tagged book is my last #roll100 for April.
I also finished Phoenix Flame. Both posts are live!
Still working on some travel posts.
I'm thinking about starting an email list, to keep readers updated on new posts. and not just book ones, but travel and work ones as well.
I'm not supporting any Meta social media, so any social media I'm exploring are listed a the bottom of my page. Check them out and follow!

This book redeemed the author, Emily Henry for me. A really well written romance book that pulled at my heart strings. The complexity of the characters is truly beautiful. The plot twists never stop coming. The only thing that annoyed me was the repetition of problems that could be solved through communication. Seems to be a common theme throughout her books. Overall, a beautiful story and I highly recommend it.
My Review: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ (4/5)
My latest charity shop buy ? I haven‘t read any Henry but when I heard about this one it really appealed to me so I‘ve been on the look out for it. A bargain at 50p. This book started its life in the USA and it never ceases to amaze me how much paperbacks cost across the pond. This one‘s RRP is $17 ? over here it would be Qf.99 full price and probably part of a buy one get one half price offer too!
Rereading Book Lovers is always the right call. As someone who is shark-esque at times, I love that Charlie loves that tendency about Nora, and I also love how much they both want each other to be satisfied with life! And all the little humorous details are pitch-perfect as always. #reread #contemporaryromance
