Ok, so to start off with - for Beach Reads I would expect something not too heavy, not too emotional, just something I could read without having to think too hard - that’s how I see Beach Reads.
Bye Bye Bad Boy I freaking love this one - tbh it would have suited the Hidden Gems shelf more, but I’m so happy it got featured anyway. I remember first reading the open scene and I was blown away. I think I read it all in one night because the directing and plot just had such a strong pull.
12 Nights I read this one a while ago too, but I’m behind because I had to re-read episode 3 and so I have been avoiding it until I can be bothered to do said re-read. This had another unique plot, though I think I remember seeing the author on the forums once mentioned the name was taken from the play (Idk if it’s a revamp of the play though). The mystery side of this story is intriguing, though I don’t think the plot has fully kicked in just yet and is still being set up. Also, I will be extremely disappointed if this doesn’t end with exactly 12 episodes.
Enemies with Benefits This might sound harsh, and I know this is a popular story, but I didn’t actually like this too much when I read it a few months ago. I felt there were way too many love interests for the sake of having multiple love interests. And what bothers me is the name of the story didn’t end up having all that much to do with the plot. Sure, MC has an enemy, but the benefits? It was mentioned once in the story, and it’s not in a FWB type of arrangement like the title would have you believe.
