About this deal

I’ve been reviewing books for many years now, and over time I’ve become more jaded with each new release that has an overwhelming hype train behind it. they had such an enjoyable connection, which made reading their present day chapters so heartbreaking.

Which is how they find themselves sharing the largest bedroom at the Maine cottage that has been their friend group’s yearly getaway for the last decade.Trust Emily Henry to take the fake dating trope to another level with the messy complex history these two share and the spiralling lies. The holiday house where they’ve had so much fun is going to be sold, so there is only one last chance for a perfect week. the friendships and connections in this book is so strong, but it also tackles how friendships can change over time as adult friendships can become so difficult to maintain as you age with everyone being in different stages in their life. the reason why i loved this book so much, was not the romance but harriet’s introspection and character.

After reading this fantastic angsty romance/self-growth/beautiful friendship story, I decided it is my second favorite book by EH. Also not him acting shady and smiling at his phone for 70% of the book and making her think he already has a girlfriend, just for the big reveal to be that he makes tables for a living 😃 YES TABLES. But how can you pretend to be in love - and get away with it - in front of the people who know you best?her love towards her friends, her thoughts about herself, her conflicting emotions towards her family, even down to her thoughts about her job made me feel so seen. Brimming with characters you can't help but fall for and off-the-charts chemistry, HAPPY PLACE is Emily Henry doing what she does best!

I cannot explain this phenomenon, nor do I defend it, but I have a feeling I’m not the only reviewer who tends to duck and run when hyped books are saturating every bit of your online footprint.

wyn is such a pos, you can't convince me this man loved her for a single sec, they were together for almost 10 years and he broke up with her over the phone?

we also become immersed in wyn and harriet’s past relationship and we are taken back to how they first met and fell in love. i know that harry had problems with her job, but throughout the novel she reaffirmed that though it was hard, she enjoyed her job.Their only choice was to fake being together but how blurred the lines can become when they had already eight long years of practice? whenever we got a glimpse into how wyn felt about harry, it almost always felt very generic and there wasn’t anything that special or swoon worthy about it. harriet or should I say harry 😃 Harriet *deep sigh* I was rooting for u girl, we were all rooting for u. Yes Wyn, everyone voted for u to be prom king bc they felt bad for u 🥺 BRING BACK TOXIC MASCULINITY I BEG, I don't wanna read about whiny manwhores ever again. I know I’m reading something wonderful when I find myself pausing, taking a moment to sit with the story and reflect on my own life.
