Happy TBR Thursday!
Our book club chooses by consensus. Each month we bring suggestions and decide together what we’re going to read next. For our June pick, we wavered between possible fantasy and contemporary reads, but ultimately we were still all in the mood for a lighter, happier read, so we went with a contemporary book by an author many of us already like.
Our book club pick for June 2022 is Book Lovers by Emily Henry.
“One summer. Two rivals. A plot twist they didn’t see coming….
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. In fact, the only people Nora is a heroine for are her clients, for whom she lands enormous deals as a cutthroat literary agent, and her beloved little sister Libby.
Which is why she agrees to go to Sunshine Falls, North Carolina for the month of August when Libby begs her for a sisters’ trip away—with visions of a small-town transformation for Nora, who she’s convinced needs to become the heroine in her own story. But instead of picnics in meadows, or run-ins with a handsome country doctor or bulging-forearmed bartender, Nora keeps bumping into Charlie Lastra, a bookish brooding editor from back in the city. It would be a meet-cute if not for the fact that they’ve met many times and it’s never been cute.
If Nora knows she’s not an ideal heroine, Charlie knows he’s nobody’s hero, but as they are thrown together again and again—in a series of coincidences no editor worth their salt would allow—what they discover might just unravel the carefully crafted stories they’ve written about themselves.”
If you’re interested in a relatively light read that is likely to be moderately full of romance, read along with us this month! We’d love to hear your thoughts when we post the wrap-up following our June book club meeting.
