A New Emily Henry Book Is Coming!

Emily Henry
The queen of the rom-com strikes again. Not long after releasing her sixth book, “Happy Place,” the New York Times bestselling author has surprised fans with news of a new book coming out on April 23, 2024 -- “Funny Story.” In her newsletter, Emily revealed, “‘Funny Story’ is my personal breath of fresh air. To quote the great American poet, Taylor Alison Swift, it was the breeze in my hair on the weekend.” How can we not be excited when she’s quoting Taylor Swift? By the name and cover alone (I mean, he’s wearing Crocs sans sports mode for godsakes), I can already guarantee there will be maximum tension, butterflies, and a whole lot of love. 

What's Emily Henry's new book about?

According to the synopsis published by Berkley, the story centers around the pragmatic and buttoned-up Daphne, who was happily in love with her fiance Peter until the moment he realized he was in love with his childhood best friend, Petra.So where does that leave Daphne? In beautiful Waning Bay, Michigan, without friends or family, but with a dream job as a children’s librarian (that barely pays the bills), and proposing to be roommates with the only person who could possibly understand her predicament- Petra’s ex, Miles Nowak.Scruffy and chaotic, Miles is exactly the opposite Daphne. The roommates mainly avoid one another, until one day, while drowning their sorrows, they form a tenuous friendship and a plan. If said plan also involves posting deliberately misleading photos of their summer adventures together, well, who could blame them.But it's all just for show, of course, because there’s no way Daphne would actually start her new chapter by falling in love with her ex-fiancee’s new fiancee’s ex…right?That’s right, folks. Fake dating. Forced proximity. What more can we ask for? Start preparing a readathon with your book club come April! WOOO!!
