Hi everyone, welcome back to my blog! I’ve been really enjoying doing these mini style reviews for 2021 releases throughout the blog so this is my latest instalment in that series! I’ve been getting more and more into new releases this month so I’m hoping you’ll see a few more of these posts sooner than later on my blog! Grab a snack because today I’m reviewing One Last Stop by Casey McQuiston, Mrs Death Misses Death by Salena Godden and Malibu Rising by Taylor Jenkins Reid!

One Last Stop – Casey McQuiston | 🎧🌈
“August is a time and place and a person.”
I walked into this one completely blind and I just walked out of it with a sudden love for trains??? Casey McQuiston what have you done to me?!?! This was so much fun and had so many elements that I absolutely love. Found family, mystery, pop culture, drag queens, first love…trains.
Above everything in this book though, I loved the friendship between Wes and August!I love how Casey McQuiston writes romance but I’d love if they wrote a purely found family story sometime in the future!
Mrs Death Misses Death – Salena Godden | 🎧
I don’t totally know what to say about this book. It was a whole EXPERIENCE. It was hard to stomach because death can be really hard to talk about or read about but overall, I really enjoyed reading this and I highly recommend the audiobook! This book lends so well to being told out loud and I think it makes the reading experience even better!
Malibu Rising – Taylor Jenkins Reid | 🎧
I had no idea what to expect from this because as usual, I didn’t read the description. I just knew it was the new TJR book and that I needed to read it! I usually don’t gravitate towards books about fame or featuring famous characters but TJR seems to be the exception because I really really liked this and I think it was the perfect length for this story! I can’t wait to see what TJR writes next!
