Emily Henry recommends
The Looking Glass (2018)
Janet McNally
"Reading this book feels like standing in a sunbeam and watching the dust glitter. McNally transforms the mundane into the extraordinary, expertly pairs life’s bitter with its sweet, and coaxes her readers into a world they won’t soon want to leave. The Looking Glass is pure delight."
East Coast Girls (2020)
Kerry Kletter
"A brilliant firecracker of a book. East Coast Girls perfectly captures that time in a girl's life when friendship and the summer sun is enough to make you feel invincible--and the fallout when you realize that you're not. A beautiful, heartfelt, and life-affirming story about the things worth holding onto and those moments when you just have to let go."
In A Holidaze (2020)
Christina Lauren
"In a Holidaze is everything I've ever wanted in a wintry love story. As hilarious as it is sweet, and sexy as it is tender, this story is pure, irresistible magic from start to finish. I couldn't possibly love this book anymore--my favorite Christina Lauren novel yet!"
Just Last Night (2021)
Mhairi McFarlane
"[A] book I almost wish I’d written, except that would have robbed me of the intense joy of reading it... the kind of novel that will have you putting everything else on hold so you can keep turning pages until you reach its sparkling, brilliant end."
Anywhere for You (2021)
Abbie Greaves
"Abbie Greaves's Anywhere for You is a gorgeous story about hope, healing, and human connection--one of those rare novels that is as elegantly written as it is emotionally raw. Greaves's words will stay with me for a long time."
