Description

I did find myself wishing that Harriett would stand up for herself a bit more though and I also felt the issues her friends had hindered the story. Sometimes we need to do that with our reading too, and what better way than with reading challenges. 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.

Bursting with warmth and wit, this unforgettable romance is one more reason my happy place is an Emily Henry book. i’m sure i forgot something and i’ll definitely come update this but at the end of it i do still love emily henry as an author and i will continue to read whatever she publishes. we see them both focus on their self-growth and healing, but seeing harriet go through her self-discovery journey and then finding her way back to wyn has me in my feels rn, it just felt so real.

We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others. harriet and wyn are so different from each other—yet so similar, this is why they instantly connected with one another. Plot twist: deep down, I'm a hopeless romantic who yearns to love and be loved for a really long time and to be in a healthy relationship, but that's not gonna happen, so).

The things I really enjoyed about the story was the strong bond between Harriet and her friends that has lasted long after their school days. In fact, my only reservation with this book is that I can’t believe that anyone shortens the name ‘Harriet’ to ‘Har’ (am I wrong? You're not only dumb (he failed gen ed math, whatever that means) but you also collect other people's trash? Love love love the book, how it seamlessly moves between real place and happy place, past and present merged into one yet distinct to make a beautiful picture. Harriet will be the driven surgical resident who never starts a fight, and Wyn will be the laid-back charmer who never lets the cracks show.she puts other peoples needs and feelings before her own to keep the peace, the way she has an inability to show others her emotions, especially during the break up bc she fears she will be a burden really hit close to home. i was meant to feel all sad and whatever but i didn’t feel whatever loving and amazing relationship they used to have BECAUSE HER INTERNAL MONOLOGUE WAS SOLELY WANTING TO FUCK HIM. The tension between preserving the past/tradition and moving forward to new experiences is well explored, as well as the extent to which someone should compromise within their relationship. After years of being in love, how hard can it be to fake it for one week… in front of those who know you best? This amount includes seller specified domestic postage charges as well as applicable international postage, dispatch, and other fees.

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? A wistfully nostalgic look at endings, beginnings, and loving the people who will always have your back. If it was possible to stop loving you, I would have managed it in that first year of desperately trying to.Harriet is invited to her Happy Place, where she has spent her most meaningful, unforgettable, sentimental moments with her best friends Sabrina, a hotshot lawyer, and Cleo, an aspiring farmer. He’s become my best friend the way the others did: bit by bit, sand passing through an hourglass so slowly, it’s impossible to pin down the moment it happens. I'm not going to include this book in my big hype big lie shelf yet because I honestly didn't have many expectations for Happy Place. not so much a huge rom com like her other books but it’s much more mature and melancholy and UGH there are some passages i teared up at. As someone who graduated college a few years ago, has felt the sadness of friends moving away and drifting apart, and looked back on my own happy place moments that feel too far in the past, this book HIT.

I also felt nothing, nor empathy, sadness, pity or whatever towards any of these characters or their problems and relationships. note: i’ve always liked emily henry because she hasn’t fallen into the traps of other contemporary romance authors of trying to make inside jokes with all the so cute stuff that happens *gag* but unfortunately it started to happen here. this story is narrated by harriet and it is alternated between a past and present timeline, and explores how this tight-knit friend group met and harriet’s life since then. It’s nice to have a friendship that can carry on with people taking different paths and not seeing as much of each other. Get ready to feel love, nostalgia and a keen desire to phone your best friend for a long overdue catch up.

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? I kept waiting for him to finally grow and fight for Harriet and it just never happens, even at the end it is HARRIET that moves first, it's always Harriett. Maybe I am just an old cynic and I know that this is a romance novel but it was slightly over the top for me.
