Description

FROM THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR & GLOBAL TIK TOK SENSATION, EMILY HENRY

'One of my favourite authors' COLLEEN HOOVER, It Ends With Us
‘Emily knows how to craft a love story like the all-time greats’ TAYLOR JENKINS REID, Daisy Jones and The Six

-----

Daphne always loved the way Peter told their story.

That is until it became the prologue to his actual love story with his childhood bestie, Petra.

Which is how Daphne ends up rooming with her total opposite and the only person who could possibly understand her predicament: Petra's ex, Miles.

As expected, it’s not a match made in heaven – that is until one night, while tossing back tequilas, they form a plan.

And if it involves posting deliberately misleading photos of their 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-fiancé’s new fiancée’s ex . . . right?

Emily Henry does it again. I’ve loved every single one of her books, each one better than the last, and Funny Story is no exception.

First, I want to thank EH’s team for the great honour of getting to be one of the first people to read this book. I am, once again, forever indebted to you for your kindness.

Every time I pick up a new one of Emily’s books, I’m immediately thinking ‘Wow, this is my new favourite book’. And that statement never fails to be true.

Daphne and Miles’ story is one for the ages. It’s always kind of crazy to me how EH manages to give relationships so many layers. They weren’t only falling in love, they were also becoming integral parts of each other’s lives all while finding love in the most important way; through friendship.
I loved that they grew together and I’m eternally grateful that they were a bit older but not too ‘adulty’, if that makes sense to anyone but me.
It’s also amazing that their heartbreaks and their love for each other wasn’t the main part at all times. It was finding friendship and companionship in other people as well. They taught each other to need and appreciate everyone in their lives, not just each other. I think it’s so important and very under-represented in many other books.

Anyway;
Emily, you truly are the one true love of my life. Whatever you write is gold in my eyes. I open one of your books and I’m immediately transported into a world of communication and love. Of understanding and problem solving. I wish the men you write were real because then I could still believe in love. Actually, scratch that, because of you I still believe in love. Thank you. I will appreciate you until my lungs give out and my heart stops beating.
