Emily Henry's writing feels effortless and it shows how talented a writer she is. Book Lovers is *chef's kiss*. It's a love letter to those who feel like they have to be the capable ones, to hold everything together, and are often told they're too much, but also not enough.
It's a brilliant enemies to lovers story, Nora and Charlie have such an intense chemistry, and watching them reveal themselves one witty conversation at a time is so satisfying. It's not just how they see each other, but also how they begin to see themselves. I loved Nora and Libby's relationship, how important they were to one another, and how supportive as well.
Adequately describing how amazing Book Lovers is a difficult task. I didn't know I'd be getting a beautiful story about love, family, relationships with this amazing depth and insight. It's so subtle and smoothly done. I wasn't expecting that sort of finesse, but probably should have known comes with reading an Emily Henry book.
I highly recommend going into this story blind, and if you're an emotional reader like I am, keeping tissues handy- just in case you need them. I know I will be thinking about Nora and Charlie for a while, marinating in my thoughts and feelings. I have a feeling you will too once you're finished reading.
