Beach Read – Emily Henry

If you think you’re about to read a chick-lit book about a beach vacation when you pick up Beach Read, then you are wrong. Myself included, I had no idea the depth to this book and upon reading several similar reviews, concluded that the title (and cover art) is incredibly captivating and misleading at the same time. …
