For the people that have been following me for a while now, you might remember that my two friends and I run a book club together, which we’ve recently just opened up to you guys! (If you’re interested, you can check out our Goodreads group here!)
If you have no idea what I’m talking about, you can check out this post, but here’s the general gist: My friends and I read a book together each month, and then write a chat post about it, talking about our thoughts on the book of that month. You can see our December Group Read Chat to see what we did last month!)
Anyway, onto the point of this post!
Beth suggested a book for next months read, and it’s called The Love That Split The World by Emily Henry, and it sounds cool!
Here’s the Goodreads synopsis:
Natalie Cleary must risk her future and leap blindly into a vast unknown for the chance to build a new world with the boy she loves.
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 pre-school 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.
That’s when she gets a visit 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.
I’m not going to lie, when I first read the synopsis of this book, I wasn’t keen. But after it being chosen for our group read for February, I looked back at it again, and found that it sounded much better than it first had!
Unfortunately, it doesn’t come out in print form until 13th February in the UK, but it does come out on 26th January in the US (you guys are so lucky!!).
If you guys are interested in reading this book with us, come and join our Goodreads group! We’d love for others to get involved and tell us their opinions on the books we’re reading, and offer suggestions for another months read!
Have any of you guys heard of this book? What do you think about it from the synopsis?
You can get this book from Amazon here.
