Book review: Book Lovers by Emily Henry

Well hello to you my reader chums! I’m not one for romance books usually, however, this one intrigued me because it focused on a literary agent and had a book-loving theme about it.

If you’re looking for a non-so-typical romance, here’s my full book review of Book Lovers by Emily Henry.

Book review: Book Lovers by Emily Henry


The plot follows Nora who has been burnt many times by guys and thinks she’s the girl men date before they find ‘the one’. Nora and her sister Libby are inseparable and completely opposite with Libby as a mum and in a long-lasting marriage and Nora, as a professional literary agent whose life is her career. Libby wants some sister time and a break, persuading Nora to take a month out and head to Sunshine Falls on a vacation, with the hope of Nora having a holiday romance.

Characters and relationships

The protagonist Nora I really loved as I related to her on so many levels, including her determination, hard work ethic and love for her sister. She has definitely taken the protective role in the sibling bond and puts people’s needs before her own, a completely giving soul. Libby, Nora’s sister is joyful and a bubbly and wild character in many ways. I loved reading about her spirit and her enthusiasm for lots of creative ideas.

Nora and Libby’s bond was my favourite to read about because it was incredibly real and honest, what many strong sibling bonds are like including my own. They care about each other on a very deep level, they laugh like only sisters can and fight the same. It’s true love and a blessing to delve into their world.

Nora and Charlie’s relationship was interesting as her potential love interest, it’s not what you’d expect from a typical love story relationship. At first, they hated each other and I loved how the author develops their bond.

Overall thoughts

Overall, I really enjoyed reading this book because it has a strong focus on the character’s development and how each of them flourishes. Also how the destination and plan of the vacation link in with the entire plot. It’s genius and sweet in the best kind of way and I could really see myself in that small town.


I won’t give away the ending, however, it’s a beautiful note to end the story of all characters as they got what they needed. It was happy, and enlightening and made me smile.

I hope you enjoyed this! Are you a romance novel fan?
