People We Meet on Vacation by Emily Henry
It’s June! Happy Summer, friends!!
If you are following along on my Instagram, you may have seen me share about a book that kept me up until 2am last week. People We Meet on Vacation is that book friends and it is our June pick! What better endorsement than staying up all night to finish it?! Seriously though, I couldn’t get enough of this book. The characters are so lovable and as she did in Beach Read, Emily Henry really delivers with some fantastic writing. I hope you love reading it as much as I did.
Poppy and Alex have been vacationing together every summer for a decade. After they shared a ride home from college one summer, they’ve been best friends ever since. And each summer they embark on an adventure together. Two years ago their trip went horribly wrong and nothing has been the same. Poppy is determined to get the spark back in their friendship after convincing Alex to take another trip together. Can she repair their bond in just one week? And will the unspoken tension between them ever be resolved?

Why We Chose It:
I may or may not have stayed up until 2:00 am to finish this book. I love Emily’s writing and savored every single page! Can not WAIT for you to read this one, I might just read it again with you!

I finished this book in about 36 hours earlier this year and legitimately missed Poppy and Alex when it was over. I was so invested in them and their story and I know you will be too!
This book exceeded my every expectation which was an impossible feat! It’s the sweetest story that will tug at your heartstrings with plenty of laughs along the way. I don’t know if I’ve ever loved characters this much!
