YOU GUYS!! Can you believe there’s only a few more days left of 2021 😳 this year felt like the longest ever, but at the same time flew by really quick.

There were a lot of firsts. I moved into an apartment, did my first in-person semester of college, and inevitably, made a lot of new experiences there, some good and some bad. Regardless of how this year turned out, I know it’ll be a memorable one for so many reasons.
All that being said, I’m ready to say bye to 2021.
I have been COUNTING DOWN THE DAYS until Taylor Swift drops Red (Taylor’s Version),,, and on November 12th, you can probably catch me laying on the floor of my room with a box of tissues nearby 🥲 most of those tears will probably be shed from listening to the 10 minute version of All Too Well.
Now, whether or not you’re a self proclaimed swiftie, I’ve tried my best to have a book from a variety of genres so hopefully you can find something that fits the vibe! My goal was to have a book for everyone, but it did prove to be quite a challenge. This honestly might have been the hardest post I’ve ever written, and I realized in the process that I really have not read as much romance as I would’ve thought,,,and also I’m a huge fan of second-chance romance, apparently, so expect a lot of that.

If I could describe Everything I Never Told You in one sentence, it would be this: a heartbreaking book about a fractured family told in a beautiful way. Luckily, I have more than one sentence to write this review, but frankly, I don’t think anything I write could truly do it justice.
This book takes place in the suburbs of Ohio during the 1970’s. The Lee’s are a mixed-race family of four who have a seemingly perfect life. However, the story starts with the body of Lydia Lee, the oldest daughter, being found in the local lake. In her wake, Lydia’s mother, father, brother, and sister are all left to deal with their grief and figure out where they stand as a family and as individuals without her. We follow multiple timelines, like when James Lee (the father) and Marilyn (the mother) first met, their romance and struggles as an inter-racial couple in the 60’s/70’s, the lives of their kids growing up, and more.
