About this deal

Fizzing with romance, wit and characters to fall head over heels for, Happy Place is a gloriously feelgood novel of fake relationships and awkward holidays from the bestselling author of Book Lovers and Beach Read.

Well, aside from the FOMO that had built continuously, the marketing of friends-to-lovers-to-enemies really got me, and the fact that this was being paraded as her angstiest book yet (I love a good tummy turmoil romance) sealed the deal.How hard could it be to stay in the same room, touching and kissing your ex in front of others when you are still harboring your unresolved feelings?

To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. It was an overall sad read, focusing on friendships drifting apart, parents getting old/dying, and failed expectations (imposed mainly by self doubt and pressure from friends and family). we see his character as very self conscious and never believes in himself, we can see that he feels he is not enough for harriet and his self doubt instincts always take over but he loves HARD. Not only will they make you happy, her latest may just make you fall in love with falling in love again. Harriet and Wyn are the perfect couple - they go together like bread and butter, gin and tonic, Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds.There is just one small problem with this plan - perfect couple Harriet and Wyn have actually been broken up for 6 months and neglected to tell their friends.

He was with sabrina for 10 years or whatever but got annoyed at her for reacting the way she did and didn't think of finding her after she was gone for the whole day? I’ve memorized the rhythm of his breathing when he sleeps and the smell of his skin when he’s been out in the sun. Emily Henry is a bestselling American author of romantic and Young Adult fiction, best known for her TikTok-conquering novels Beach Read, You and Me on Vacation and Book Lovers.And if I am being totally honest, I felt like the ending was not enough payoff for the all the emotional trauma we were all put through.

Ok so even though I did have my issues with this book, obviously, I still really thought it was beautiful. The found family aspect represented belonging in a way that I think we all want to experience, with people who just know and accept you at your core. Harriet is a person who doesn't know how to fight, hates conflicts, and tries to please everyone around her. weirdly, i still don’t believe that he and harriet fully understand the reason that they broke up or they didn’t work out. I was sitting there feeling awkward and out of place because a friend group I’m not a part of was the main character, not the relationship.i get what he was going through at the end, but his character still felt very one dimensional to me. Miscommunication is a relatively common theme throughout the story whether it be between lovers or friends; some is minor but it is a major theme for Harriet and Wyn’s relationship. Emily Henry has written the friendship dynamics brilliantly and made the friends sharing a summer house story more complex and dynamic. My dream was to become a neurosurgeon, so I was speechless and almost screaming like Regina George in Mean Girls).
