I just wanted it to be over. Super cringey. Very cheesy. Too long.
I couldn’t wait for this boring, cringy cliche to be over. Brutal.
Very sweet! I enjoyed it!
Wow. I Loved it! Have read
Loved this book so much!
LOVE this book! Interesting characters, lots of humor, and of course, excellent love story. Julia Whelan is amazing narrating, as usual.
Great listen and book! The story, especially the humor is smart, with the banter between characters well written. The narrator, Julia, is by far my favorite of all! I would listen to any book she reads!
Great read!! Finished in 2 days!
Perfect read to start the summer!
This might be the best read of the year! It is best narrated no doubt! Loved every bit!
Lovely well written book. Perfect summer read.
Great story that was so fun and easy to listen to. I loved the characters, loved the setting, loved the writing and the sense of humor.
This is the first book I've read by this author, but I do plan to pick up another one. I enjoyed her style and humor and hope that Book Lovers isn't just a copy-cat story of the other books she's written because I want to see how wide she can spread her humor and style. This story was somewhat original for a romance novel and that made it fun for me to read, plus, it was a compelling story that I just wanted to hide in a closet to listen so that no one would try to talk to me while I listened. Also, Julia Whelan is my favorite narrator so it made the book that much greater to enjoy.
I love romance with wit and humor and this certainly delivered!
Very predictable and very hallmark. BUT it was a cute fun lighthearted read. Perfect feel good book!
I absolutely loved this book! Didn't want it to end!
Very sweet, my favorite of her books so far!
Highly recommend. Great character development… somewhat predictable, but what do you expect when reading this genre. It was a captivating read!
I don’t do Hallmark movies and I certainly don’t want to read a Hallmark book. Awful. Not my cup of tea.
Just what I needed. A light read (listen) with a great plot and clever dialogue.
This was a good read. love to read happily ever after. Good for the soul!
I wasn't captured immediately, but the book turned out to be a great read. Now I'm looking forward to read more from Emily Henry!
Emily never disappoints. The pace of Nora and Charlie was perfect. The sister dynamic was enjoyable to read.
The book was just okay. I like the narrator
Very cute book...thoroughly enjoyed the plot. Narrator is one of my favorites. Would definitely recommend.
Eh, it was fine. Kind of too predictable and I listened to the audiobook which was narrated by Julia Whelan who reads TONS of books and her dude voice kind of irritates me so…yeah it was just okay.
I think if I was reading this book, it would have been a DNF. The narrator is excellent. The story was good, just not great.
This book is absolute trash. It’s the cheesiest, most cringy book I’ve read since I was in like 8th grade. No spoilers or anything, but the whole books is basically three extremely immature characters; two sisters (one is the protagonist) who act and talk to each other like they’re 10 year old stuck up VSCO girls, and then the two main characters who just snipe at each other for hundreds of pages on end. Literally every conversation is just sappy and cheesy sarcasm and passive aggressive passes at each other. Not sure if it’s supposed to come off as flirtatious, but it’s really just incessantly annoying, immature and made my ears bleed (I listened to the audiobook. If I’d had a physical copy I would’ve burned it and flushed the ashes down the toilet). The main characters are both book editors, If Emily Henry spent quadrupole the amount of time as the two protagonists editing the book, it still wouldn’t be enough to make it not absolutely SUCK. If you want a mind numbing, stereotypical summer romance book with no substance, then read or listen to this book at your own discretion.
I’m going to sound like a grouch, just saying beforehand. This book drive me crazy. It was a good 30% too long. There were way too many repetitive descriptions of the main character getting aroused over the guy. After a while it just got irritating.
One of my least favorite things, both in the real world and in fiction- doing something naughty on a bet (skinny dipping, in this case), then acting surprised when it leads to something. “Hey I’m just swimming naked in the dark in front of you to fulfill a bet - what are you doing thinking I’m into you?!)
I love a good metaphor as much as anyone. It’s like icy tea in a wet glass on a hot day. But to describe virtually every thought and emotion, big or small, in the book this way? It’s like swallowing a snow ball full of tiny knives, and makes my head hurt as if badgers are playing volleyball in my skull (you get the idea…).
Lastly, I found the protagonist’s martyr complex extremely annoying. And she kept it up after her sister explicitly asked her to stop.
I could only keep going because I will apparently listen to Julia Whelan read absolutely anything (she’s the best!).
I loved this book! I especially liked the dialog between the main characters. Very snappy and humorous and clever. Plus, the writing is excellent too. The story was a bit different, but somewhat unpredictable. I only put 5 stars on books I will listen to again and this one is definitely on the list. I thought the narrator had the right voice too and did a good job of differentiating the voices too. The narrator added a lot by her inflection too. Very good!!!
