Hey guys I thought it would be fun to do the Bookish Naughty or Nice Tag. I did this tag back in 2018 and 2019. I’m not sure why I skipped it in 2020 but I’m back to do it again. I always have fun with this tag. The two years I did it I had different scores. I’m really excited to see what my score is this year. So let’s dive in!
Genre: Fiction, Contemporary, Adult, Romance, Historical, Adult Fiction, Family
Pages: 369 pages
Publication Date: June 1st 2021
Publisher: Ballantine Books
Plot: Four famous siblings throw an epic party to celebrate the end of the summer. But over the course of twenty-four hours, their lives will change forever.
Malibu: August, 1983. It’s the day of Nina Riva’s annual end-of-summer party, and anticipation is at a fever pitch. Everyone wants to be around the famous Rivas: Nina, the talented surfer and supermodel; brothers Jay and Hud, one a championship surfer, the other a renowned photographer; and their adored baby sister, Kit. Together, the siblings are a source of fascination in Malibu and the world over—especially as the offspring of the legendary singer, Mick Riva.
The only person not looking forward to the party of the year is Nina herself, who never wanted to be the center of attention, and who has also just been very publicly abandoned by her pro tennis player husband. Oh, and maybe Hud—because it is long past time to confess something to the brother from whom he’s been inseparable since birth.
Jay, on the other hand, is counting the minutes until nightfall, when the girl he can’t stop thinking about promised she’ll be there.
And Kit has a couple secrets of her own—including a guest she invited without consulting anyone.
By midnight the party will be completely out of control. By morning, the Riva mansion will have gone up in flames. But before that first spark in the early hours before dawn, the alcohol will flow, the music will play, and the loves and secrets that shaped this family’s generations will all come bubbling to the surface.
Malibu Rising is a story about one unforgettable night in the life of a family: the night they each have to choose what they will keep from the people who made them… and what they will leave behind.
Hey guys!! I thought it would be fun to do another tag today. I had this in my drafts from September. I realized why not squeeze it in especially since fall ends on Monday. I always enjoy doing tags but then I end up falling behind on them. The lovely Destiny @Howling Libraries tagged me in this. If you don’t follow her you are really missing out. She is super lovely and such a great friend of mine. The tag was originally created by Sam’s Nonsense over on booktube. Let’s dive in and see what the questions are!

Snow Day – What’s your “comfort” book?
Harry Potter By J.K. Rowling. I remember I had gotten a bunch of the books for Christmas one year. Then my Dad decided to read them to me before bed. It was always my favorite part of the day. Then as the books continued to come out we would go to the midnight release. So I have a lot of cherished memories for these books.
Snow Angels – What’s a book that you love so much you would want to be buried with it(a little morid, but…)?
Hm this is a toughie for me. I am currently going through my Read book shelf on goodreads to see what sticks out to me.
(After a couple minutes of looking) Honestly this is harder than I thought. I kinda wanted to do a funny book title. Basically something to do with the situation I am in but it’s tough to pick one.
I decided on The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo. That book gives me all the emotions. Also like how cool would it be to be buried dressed like Evelyn on the cover. I’m down.
Warm Socks – What’s a book that makes you feel warm inside?(The fluffiest, cutest romance you’ve ever read?)
I’m looking at my favorite books and majority are thrillers. The romance books have a pretty sad storyline to them. Damn so I think I’ll have to go with Geekerella. I thought that was just cute an fluffy.
Hot Cocoa – What winter-themed novels have you previously read?
One by One By Ruth Ware. That book took place during an avalanche where people were getting murdered and there was no where to go. It actually was a very enjoyable read. If you wanna hear more on my thoughts you can find my review Here.
Sledding – What’s a book with the best plot twists? Who’s an author that always keeps you on your toes?
The Wife Between Us By Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen. This book had me sucked in right from the start. I was shocked by the outcome of the story and didn’t except anything.
Ugly Sweaters – What’s a book with the ugliest cover?
End of Watch By Stephen King. The first two books ended up matching each other. Then they decided to switch things up for the last book. I ended up getting rid of all the books because I wasn’t into the third one at all.
Movie Marathon – What’s the last book you binge read?
Unboxed By Briana Morgan. I know it’s a short story and is written in play format but it’s the last book I remember sitting and finishing from start to finish. This book had me invested and I couldn’t put it down.
Letter to Santa – What’s a book that’s on your wishlist this year?
Little Cruelties By Liz Nugent. Liz has become an autobuy author for me. I loved Lying in Wait and Unraveling Oliver. They were both just fantastic. Her third book which is Skin Deep was not published in the U.S. Thankfully my friend bought a copy from book depository. Anyway the moment I saw this was being published in the U.S. I knew I had to own it. I do hope I get it.
