The following is an honest review of Book Lovers by Emily Henry and my suggested age rating.
Nora Stephan’s is a literary agent and a book lover but she’s never been the heroine of her own story. Libby, Nora’s sister suddenly demands Nora to leave town and take a trip with her. For all of August, Nora will work remotely from the small town of Sunshine Falls, North Carolina. Libby has a whole plan to make Nora the heroine, go on a date with a local, eat in town, take off work…. but fate has other plans. Nora isn’t hitting it off with farmers she’s physically and continuously bumping into Charlie Lastra, the last man she wants to see. Charlie is an editor and believes he will never be the hero in his story. Nora and Charlie both believe they’ll never be the hero’s but they end up being exactly what each other needs.
Review of Book Lovers
Emily Henry is extremely well known at this point, but I have found that she is worth alllll the hype. While Beach Read, People We Meet On Vacation, and Book Lovers seem cliche at first glance Emily’s characters always pull me in. Sure we have the classic backstory, falling out, happy ending timeline but done like no other. The banter is always amazing and this was no exception.
Book Lovers characters Charlie and Nora have a relationship unlike one I’ve ever read. They’re both witty and can mess around with each other, they can have deep chats, and they also have a friendship at the base of their relationship. Everything about Charlie and Nora was so believable and human. I loved the sister relationship aspect in this novel. I’m not a fan of miscommunication in books but it made sense in this one. Libby and Nora are the perfect balance, a push and pull relationship. We also see and understand Nora and the struggles of being the oldest and mothering your sibling.
Also, I loved the whole spin on the big city girl goes to small town and falls in love trope. As far as I can remember, I’ve never read a novel that does it in this way. Lastly, I loved Nora’s tall girl representation. It wasn’t cheesy or like she was quirky. It was just there and showed how it affects things and her life. ALL IN ALL READ THIS BOOK
Age Rating of Book Lovers
I’m giving Book Lovers an age rating of 16 and up. There is some sexual content that can easily be skipped and mature themes as the characters are adults working through adult problems.
