“That’s the thing about women. There’s no good way to be one. Wear your emotions on your sleeve and you’re hysterical. Keep them tucked away where your boyfriend doesn’t have to tend to them and you’re a heartless bitch.”

Book Lovers is Emily Henry’s latest book and if you read the genre you know how big her latest books have became in the last couple of years. This time the story follows Nora Stephens who works as a book agent with her younger sister Libby and the editor she keeps crossing roads with Charlie.

The author mentions that it is the story of the girl who is left behind for the other typical heroine. The supposedly bitchy icy queen. To be honest, I did not get those vibes from Nora. She is not the most typical female protagonist but she’s not bad at all as the author wants her to be. I think the story focuses more on her relationship with her sister and the romance is there but it is more of a subplot and less steamy than her previous books.

I love Henry’s writing and although it took some time to get into the story. I knew the ending would be the best part and I was just waiting for everything to drop into place and get teary as I did in her latest two novels and guess what? I think Emily Henry is the second author to make me tear three times while reading her books (The first author is Fredrik Backman) and that’s a huge thing for me.

Despite not getting the intended vibes from Nora, I still liked her as a character. Libby is decent too and Charlie understood the assignment. I think the character development was good and as usual in Henry’s story the past is kind of vague at the beginning and we get to unravel it through the story which gives more depth to everything.

“Sometimes, even when you start with the last page and you think you know everything, a book finds a way to surprise you.”

Summary: I enjoyed Book Lovers because at this point, Henry is one of my auto-read authors for romance. Her stories do have cute romances but they always have more than just that. The writing is good and I enjoyed getting to know more about the publishing world. The characters were likable and the story folded very nicely.
