Hey guys! Merry Christmas Eve Eve to you all! One of my favorite days of the year. I am so excited to bring to you my favorites of the year. I did notice I didn’t really give many books a 5 star. I think only 3 books which is wild to me. I feel this year has been a bit of an iffy reading year for me. I am hoping 2022 is better. That is so crazy to say. I still can’t believe it is next week. Anyway let’s dive in to see my favorite of the year.
Hi guys! I have been really enjoying trying chapters of different books. This week I decided to pick up some of the Taylor Jenkin Reid books I haven’t read yet. I’m trying to figure out which one I’m going to read next. I’ve been wanting to check out her older books and this is the perfect way to pick. So let’s dive in and see what I tried this week.
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 am finally talking about my favorite books of 2020. I just went through the books I ended up reading and I’m definitely struggling a bit to remember some of the plot from different books. I do feel a lot of what I did end up reading in 2020 was a blur. I know we all had a tough year so I’m sure I’m not alone in these feelings. I just feel some of these books I read way over a year ago. So please bare with me as I try to remember. I do have to say I feel 2021 reading is going better. I have been in the mood to physically read which I feel is a big step. So that has me really excited. Overall here is to hoping 2021 reading is better than 2020s. Let’s dive in to my favorites of 2020!
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!
Hey guys! So it is time for my October Wrap-up. I know that this is a bit late. I didn’t end up blogging during the month of November. I still wanted to update you guys on what I ended up reading in October. It did end up being a bit more than I remember. However I did read some short stories and some comics so that is part of it. I honestly felt like I read some of these books a while ago. My brain is definitely shot from this year. I do look forward to 2021 and starting a clean slate. I do hope it ends up being better. Anyway now let’s dive in to see what I read in October!
Hey guys, I’m back! I decided I would attempt to do Blogmas this year. Blogmas is something I started doing 2 years ago. It gives me a challenge and I always find it enjoyable. It’s my bookish way of getting into the Christmas spirit. Please bare with me. I haven’t been in the mood to blog and am in a bit of a reading slump. So I’m trying to use this to get myself out of both. Let’s hope this works.
Anyway, it’s time for another Top Ten Tuesday hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. The theme for this week is Books I Want to Read Again. I don’t reread books too often. I usually try to read books I haven’t read before. Sometimes though we need that feeling we get from reading our favorite book again. I also will reread if I’m reading a sequel. I need to start doing that more tbh. So let’s dive in !
Hey guys!! So today is my birthday!! I am thankful that I am actually off on my birthday. I will be spending the day watching movies with my boyfriend.

Sadly the person whose blog I found this tag on has been deleted. I am excited to be doing this tag. So let’s dive in!
