Books that I have been seeing all over Instagram this week

Welcome to my All Over Instagram post! I am always interested in seeing what other people are reading, so each week I will highlight the book/s/ author/s that have been catching my attention on Instagram.

Quite a mixture again this week, but a couple of authors that have stood out to me are Ali Hazelwood and Taylor Jenkins Reid:

Book Review – The Love Hypothesis by Ali Hazelwood (click for my review)

Book Description From Goodreads:

“As a third-year Ph.D. candidate, Olive Smith doesn’t believe in lasting romantic relationships–but her best friend does, and that’s what got her into this situation.

Convincing Anh that Olive is dating and well on her way to a happily ever after was always going to take more than hand-wavy Jedi mind tricks: Scientists require proof. So, like any self-respecting biologist, Olive panics and kisses the first man she sees.That man is none other than Adam Carlsen, a young hotshot professor–and well-known ass. Which is why Olive is positively floored when Stanford’s reigning lab tyrant agrees to keep her charade a secret and be her fake boyfriend. But when a big science conference goes haywire, putting Olive’s career on the Bunsen burner, Adam surprises her again with his unyielding support and even more unyielding… six-pack abs.

Suddenly their little experiment feels dangerously close to combustion. And Olive discovers that the only thing more complicated than a hypothesis on love is putting her own heart under the microscope.”

Love on the Brain by Ali Hazelwood (click for link to Goodreads)

Book Description From Goodreads:

“Bee Königswasser lives by a simple code: What would Marie Curie do? If NASA offered her the lead on a neuroengineering project – a literal dream come true – Marie would accept without hesitation. Duh. But the mother of modern physics never had to co-lead with Levi Ward.

Sure, Levi is attractive in a tall, dark, and piercing-eyes kind of way. But Levi made his feelings toward Bee very clear in grad school – archenemies work best employed in their own galaxies far, far away.

But when her equipment starts to go missing and the staff ignore her, Bee could swear she sees Levi softening into an ally, backing her plays, seconding her ideas… devouring her with those eyes. The possibilities have all her neurons firing.

But when it comes time to actually make a move and put her heart on the line, there’s only one question that matters: What will Bee Königswasser do?”

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid (click for link to Goodreads)

Book Description From Goodreads:

“Aging and reclusive Hollywood movie icon Evelyn Hugo is finally ready to tell the truth about her glamorous and scandalous life. But when she chooses unknown magazine reporter Monique Grant for the job, no one is more astounded than Monique herself. Why her? Why now?

Monique is not exactly on top of the world. Her husband has left her, and her professional life is going nowhere. Regardless of why Evelyn has selected her to write her biography, Monique is determined to use this opportunity to jumpstart her career.

Summoned to Evelyn’s luxurious apartment, Monique listens in fascination as the actress tells her story. From making her way to Los Angeles in the 1950s to her decision to leave show business in the ‘80s, and, of course, the seven husbands along the way, Evelyn unspools a tale of ruthless ambition, unexpected friendship, and a great forbidden love. Monique begins to feel a very real connection to the legendary star, but as Evelyn’s story near its conclusion, it becomes clear that her life intersects with Monique’s own in tragic and irreversible ways.”

Malibu Rising by Taylor Jenkins Reid (click for link to Goodreads)

Book Description From Goodreads:

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.”

Books that I have been seeing all over Instagram this week

Welcome to my All Over Instagram post! I am always interested in seeing what other people are reading, so each week I will highlight the book/s/ author/s that have been catching my attention on Instagram.

It is always hard around the end of the month because a lot of the posts are wrap up posts, however the book that sticks out most this week is Love On The Brain by Ali Hazelwood (click for link to Goodreads). Rather predictably the most popular author is Colleen Hoover (click for link to Goodreads) with a few Sarah J Maas‘ (click for link to Goodreads) A Court of Thorns and Roses series.

Love On The Brain by Ali Hazelwood (click for link to Goodreads)

Book Description From Goodreads:

From the New York Times bestselling author of The Love Hypothesis comes a new STEMinist rom-com in which a scientist is forced to work on a project with her nemesis—with explosive results.

Bee Königswasser lives by a simple code: What would Marie Curie do? If NASA offered her the lead on a neuroengineering project – a literal dream come true – Marie would accept without hesitation. Duh. But the mother of modern physics never had to co-lead with Levi Ward.Sure, Levi is attractive in a tall, dark, and piercing-eyes kind of way.

Books that I have been seeing all over Instagram this week

Welcome to my All Over Instagram post! I am always interested in seeing what other people are reading, so each week I will highlight the book/s/ author/s that have been catching my attention on Instagram.

As with the last few weeks Book Lovers by Emily Henry (click for link to my review) is still the most popular book, however I have also seen a few of It Happened One Summer by Tessa Bailey (click for my review) and Hook, Line and Sinker by Tessa Bailey (click link for my review).

I have read all of these books and my favourite was Hook, Line and Sinker, but you need to have read It Happened One Summer first to fully appreciate Hook, Line and Sinker.

Book Lovers by Emily Henry (click for link to my review)

Book Description From Goodreads:

“One summer. Two rivals. A plot twist they didn’t see coming….

Nora Stephens’ life is books—she’s read them all—and she is not that type of heroine. Not the plucky one, not the laidback dream girl, and especially not the sweetheart. In fact, the only people Nora is a heroine for are her clients, for whom she lands enormous deals as a cutthroat literary agent, and her beloved little sister Libby.

Which is why she agrees to go to Sunshine Falls, North Carolina for the month of August when Libby begs her for a sisters’ trip away—with visions of a small-town transformation for Nora, who she’s convinced needs to become the heroine in her own story. But instead of picnics in meadows, or run-ins with a handsome country doctor or bulging-forearmed bartender, Nora keeps bumping into Charlie Lastra, a bookish brooding editor from back in the city. It would be a meet-cute if not for the fact that they’ve met many times and it’s never been cute.

If Nora knows she’s not an ideal heroine, Charlie knows he’s nobody’s hero, but as they are thrown together again and again—in a series of coincidences no editor worth their salt would allow—what they discover might just unravel the carefully crafted stories they’ve written about themselves.”

Book Review – It Happened One Summer by Tessa Bailey

Book Description From Goodreads:

“Piper Bellinger is fashionable, influential, and her reputation as a wild child means the paparazzi are constantly on her heels. When too much champagne and an out-of-control rooftop party lands Piper in the slammer, her stepfather decides enough is enough. So he cuts her off, and sends Piper and her sister to learn some responsibility running their late father’s dive bar… in Washington.

Piper hasn’t even been in Westport for five minutes when she meets big, bearded sea captain Brendan, who thinks she won’t last a week outside of Beverly Hills. So what if Piper can’t do math, and the idea of sleeping in a shabby apartment with bunk beds gives her hives. How bad could it really be? She’s determined to show her stepfather—and the hot, grumpy local—that she’s more than a pretty face.

Except it’s a small town and everywhere she turns, she bumps into Brendan. The fun-loving socialite and the gruff fisherman are polar opposites, but there’s an undeniable attraction simmering between them. Piper doesn’t want any distractions, especially feelings for a man who sails off into the sunset for weeks at a time. Yet as she reconnects with her past and begins to feel at home in Westport, Piper starts to wonder if the cold, glamorous life she knew is what she truly wants. LA is calling her name, but Brendan—and this town full of memories—may have already caught her heart. “

Random Things Blog Tour – Book Review – Hook, Line and Sinker by Tessa Bailey

Book Description From Goodreads:

“King crab fisherman Fox Thornton has a reputation as a sexy, carefree flirt. Everyone knows he’s a guaranteed good time–in bed and out–and that’s exactly how he prefers it. Until he meets Hannah Bellinger. She’s immune to his charm and looks, but she seems to enjoy his… personality? And wants to be friends? Bizarre. But he likes her too much to risk a fling, so platonic pals it is.

Now, Hannah’s in town for work, crashing in Fox’s spare bedroom. She knows he’s a notorious ladies’ man, but they’re definitely just friends. In fact, she’s nursing a hopeless crush on a colleague and Fox is just the person to help with her lackluster love life. Armed with a few tips from Westport’s resident Casanova, Hannah sets out to catch her coworker’s eye… yet the more time she spends with Fox, the more she wants him instead. As the line between friendship and flirtation begins to blur, Hannah can’t deny she loves everything about Fox, but she refuses to be another notch on his bedpost.

Living with his best friend should have been easy. Except now she’s walking around in a towel, sleeping right across the hall, and Fox is fantasizing about waking up next to her for the rest of his life and… and… man overboard! He’s fallen for her, hook, line, and sinker. Helping her flirt with another guy is pure torture, but maybe if Fox can tackle his inner demons and show Hannah he’s all in, she’ll choose him instead?

In the follow-up to It Happened One Summer, Tessa Bailey delivers another deliciously fun rom-com about a former player who accidentally falls for his best friend while trying to help her land a different man…”

Book Review – Reckless Girls by Rachel Hawkins

Library Book

Genre: Thriller/Mystery

No of Pages: 309

📖PLOT SUMMARY FROM GOODREADS 📖

When Lux McAllister and her boyfriend, Nico, are hired to sail two women to a remote island in the South Pacific, it seems like the opportunity of a lifetime. Stuck in a dead-end job in Hawaii, and longing to travel the world after a family tragedy, Lux is eager to climb on board The Susannah and set out on an adventure. She’s also quick to bond with their passengers, college best friends Brittany and Amma. The two women say they want to travel off the beaten path. But like Lux, they may have other reasons to be seeking an escape.

💭THOUGHTS💭

This was quite a popular book on Instagram and so when I saw that it was available at the library I got quite excited!  

The writing was detailed and set out in an interesting way (past and present chapters interspersed with letters and messages from people who had previously visited the Island). This style added suspense and gave the story a good pace, nothing felt rushed. It was mainly from one character’s point of view, but there were other characters that had their own little bits in their own chapters. 

The chapters were fairly short and along with the random letters/messages from previous visitors to the Island, there were chapters based in the past. Whilst there were these different chapters you always knew where you were. The story was built up well and you really got sucked in. 

The characters were excellent. I was completely taken in by them and there were so many twists and turns throughout the book that I just didn’t know who to trust. Just the way it was written made you feel like something could happen at any moment. 

Lastly the settings were excellent. The Island was so beautifully described, yet you were torn between wanting to be there and wanting to run away. I loved the way that there were so many ways to die so that when a death did happen you were never quite sure how it happened. 

Overall I really enjoyed this book. The only reason I didn’t give it 5 stars was because of the language used. There was a lot of swearing that wasn’t necessary to the story. 

⭐Rated 4.5/5⭐

Book Review – Book Lovers by Emily Henry

📖PLOT SUMMARY FROM GOODREADS 📖

One summer. Two rivals. A plot twist they didn’t see coming….

Nora Stephens’ life is books—she’s read them all—and she is not that type of heroine. Not the plucky one, not the laidback dream girl, and especially not the sweetheart. In fact, the only people Nora is a heroine for are her clients, for whom she lands enormous deals as a cutthroat literary agent, and her beloved little sister Libby.

Which is why she agrees to go to Sunshine Falls, North Carolina for the month of August when Libby begs her for a sisters’ trip away—with visions of a small-town transformation for Nora, who she’s convinced needs to become the heroine in her own story. But instead of picnics in meadows, or run-ins with a handsome country doctor or bulging-forearmed bartender, Nora keeps bumping into Charlie Lastra, a bookish brooding editor from back in the city. It would be a meet-cute if not for the fact that they’ve met many times and it’s never been cute.

If Nora knows she’s not an ideal heroine, Charlie knows he’s nobody’s hero, but as they are thrown together again and again—in a series of coincidences no editor worth their salt would allow—what they discover might just unravel the carefully crafted stories they’ve written about themselves.

💭THOUGHTS💭

I got this book for my birthday and was looking forward to reading it as it has been so popular on Bookstagram. It was a good book, but something was missing for me. 

The writing was good and had a lot of different elements to it. I enjoyed the sister relationship as well as the romantic relationship. I thought that gave it something extra. 

The chapters were long and you got a good chunk of the story before you moved on. Sometimes the chapters were split which made them longer. For me they could have been shorter and more to the point, but you do feel like you know all there is to know about the main characters and their settings by the end! 

The characters were excellent. I loved the main character and appreciated that her past shaped who she was and it was that experience that made her act the way that she did. I really felt that we got to know her inside out by the end of the book. 

Lastly the settings. I loved the contrast between New York and a village in North Carolina and I also liked how the story ended. I was however a bit confused by the epilogue and didn’t really see how it fitted with the story. 

Overall a good book, but with something missing for me. Having said that it hasn’t put me off reading Emily Henry’s other two books and I couldn’t give this book less than 4 stars so it’s not all doom and gloom!  

⭐Rated 4/5⭐
