Mini-Reviews // First Half of January 2021

I always enjoy seeing a round-up of people’s mini reviews, as well as their bookish photos of each book. So, I present you with my mini-reviews from my Instagram for the first half of the month!

I have had such a great reading month so far! It is kind of crazy to me that I have already read 8 books this month! Also, I have had three 5 star reviews, which is also very out of the ordinary for me. Let’s hope the second half of the month is just as good!

Monthly Wrap-Up: November 2020

Hello everyone! This month, I read a total of 5 books! My monthly total has been down the past few months, but I am way ahead of my yearly goal, so I’m trying not to be too anxious about it haha

I’m going to try to do things slightly differently this year. I am going to keep y’all updated on how my various book challenges are going in each of my monthly wrap-ups.

Let’s get into it!

Mini-Reviews // November 2020

This year I started writing mini-reviews over on my Instagram whenever I finish a book. It has been a really great way of remembering more about my thoughts on a book and why I gave it the star rating I did. So, I thought it would be good practice to corral those mini-reviews into one place twice a month (whenever I think about it haha) so that all of you can take a peek at what I’ve been reading and see my thoughts on each book.

Book Review: Chasing Lucky

Chasing Lucky by Jenn Bennett ~ 416 pages ~ to be published 11/10/2020 by Simon Pulse

Goodreads Synopsis:

Budding photographer Josie Saint-Martin has spent half her life with her single mother, moving from city to city. When they return to her historical New England hometown years later to run the family bookstore, Josie knows it’s not forever. Her dreams are on the opposite coast, and she has a plan to get there.

What she doesn’t plan for is a run-in with the town bad boy, Lucky Karras. Outsider, rebel…and her former childhood best friend. Lucky makes it clear he wants nothing to do with the newly returned Josie. But everything changes after a disastrous pool party, and a poorly executed act of revenge lands Josie in some big-time trouble—with Lucky unexpectedly taking the blame.

Determined to understand why Lucky was so quick to cover for her, Josie discovers that both of them have changed, and that the good boy she once knew now has a dark sense of humor and a smile that makes her heart race. And maybe, just maybe, he’s not quite the brooding bad boy everyone thinks he is…
