Binge-watched Normal People and Love is Blind and now looking to escape into another suitably steamy love story? Look no further...
TWO WRITERS, ONE HOLIDAY. A ROMCOM WAITING TO HAPPEN...
January is a hopeless romantic who narrates her life like she's the lead in a blockbuster movie.
Gus is a serious literary type who thinks true love is a fairy-tale.

They're both broke.
They've got crippling writer's block.
And they need to write bestsellers before summer ends.
The result? A bet to swap genres and see who gets published first.
The risk? In telling each other's stories, their worlds might be changed entirely...

Romeo and Juliet meets One Hundred Years of Solitude in Emily Henry's brilliant follow-up to The Love That Split the World, about the daughter and son of two long-feuding families who fall in love while trying to uncover the truth about the strange magic and harrowing curse that has plagued their bloodlines for generations.
In their hometown of Five Fingers, Michigan, the O'Donnells and the Angerts have mythic legacies. But for all the tall tales they weave, both founding families are tight-lipped about what caused the century-old rift between them, except to say it began with a cherry tree.
Eighteen-year-old Jack “June” O’Donnell doesn't need a better reason than that. She's an O'Donnell to her core, just like her late father was, and O'Donnells stay away from Angerts. Period.
But when Saul Angert, the son of June's father's mortal enemy, returns to town after three mysterious years away, June can't seem to avoid him. Soon the unthinkable happens: She finds she doesn't exactly hate the gruff, sarcastic boy she was born to loathe.
Saul’s arrival sparks a chain reaction, and as the magic, ghosts, and coywolves of Five Fingers conspire to reveal the truth about the dark moment that started the feud, June must question everything she knows about her family and the father she adored. And she must decide whether it's finally time for her—and all of the O'Donnells before her—to let go.

Emily Henry's stunning debut novel is Friday Night Lights meets The Time Traveler's Wife and perfectly captures those bittersweet months after high school, when we dream not only of the future, but of all the roads and paths we've left untaken.
Natalie's last summer in her small Kentucky hometown is off to a magical start . . . until she starts seeing the "wrong things." They're just momentary glimpses at first—her front door is red instead of its usual green, there’s a preschool where the garden store should be. But then her whole town disappears for hours, fading away into rolling hills and grazing buffalo, and Nat knows something isn't right.
Then there are the visits from the kind but mysterious apparition she calls "Grandmother," who tells her, "You have three months to save him." The next night, under the stadium lights of the high school football field, she meets a beautiful boy named Beau, and it's as if time just stops and nothing exists. Nothing, except Natalie and Beau.
Emily Henry is "one of YA's preeminent voices....an exquisite, genre-bending novel. --Booklist
The Serpent King meets Stranger Things in Emily Henry's gripping novel about a group of friends in a small town who find themselves dealing with unexpected powers after a cosmic event.
Almost everyone in the small town of Splendor, Ohio, was affected when the local steel mill exploded. If you weren't a casualty of the accident yourself, chances are a loved one was. That's the case for seventeen-year-old Franny, who, five years after the explosion, still has to stand by and do nothing as her brother lies in a coma.
In the wake of the tragedy, Franny found solace in a group of friends whose experiences mirrored her own. The group calls themselves The Ordinary, and they spend their free time investigating local ghost stories and legends, filming their exploits for their small following of YouTube fans. It's silly, it's fun, and it keeps them from dwelling on the sadness that surrounds them.
Until one evening, when the strange and dangerous thing they film isn't fiction--it's a bright light, something massive hurtling toward them from the sky. And when it crashes and the teens go to investigate...everything changes.
charmante romantische Komödie über Bücher, das Leben und natürlich die Liebe
Wie schreibt man einen Liebesroman, wenn die eigene Beziehung gerade in die Brüche gegangen ist?
In einem idyllisch gelegenen Strandhaus hofft die New Yorker Romance-Autorin January, ihre Schreibblockade zu überwinden, denn der Abgabetermin für ihren neuesten Liebesroman rückt unerbittlich näher. Gleich am ersten Abend beobachtet January eine wilde Party bei ihrem Nachbarn – der sich ausgerechnet als der arrogante Gus herausstellt, mit dem sie vor Jahren einen Schreibkurs besucht hat. Als January erfährt, dass Gus ebenfalls in einer veritablen Schreibkrise steckt, seit er sich vorgenommen hat, den nächsten großen amerikanischen Roman zu verfassen, hat sie eine ebenso verzweifelte wie geniale Idee: Sie schreiben einfach das Buch des jeweils anderen weiter! Ein Experiment mit erstaunlichen Folgen …
"Verliebt in deine schönsten Seiten" ist das Debüt der amerikanischen Autorin Emily Henry: eine moderne, locker-leicht erzählte romantische Komödie über zwei Autoren mit erheblichen Vorurteilen gegen das Genre des jeweils anderen, über die Liebe zu Büchern und zum Lesen und natürlich über das Suchen (und Finden) der ganz großen Liebe, die sich gerne da versteckt, wo man sie am wenigsten erwartet.
