Year 16, Book 101

101. People We Meet on Vacation by Emily Henry

Poppy and Alex became unlikely friends in college where they started a tradition of taking vacations with each other every summer. Even after their lives took them to different places they still made time to do that annual vacation each year until two years ago when something on that vacation ended their friendship. With her life not where she wants it to be and missing her friend, Poppy reaches out to Alex proposing a new trip and hoping to use it to restore their friendship and perhaps even more.

I thought this was overall a good, entertaining read. There was lots of good banter and I liked the characters. I thought it was a little ridiculous that they never got together or even made a move towards it in any way until the events that happened in the book. It seemed very unlikely to me, but if you just go with that then the rest of the book is a cute little rom-com. I give it a 7 out of 10.
