Publishing two posts – one at the beginning and one at the end of the year (without publishing anything in between) is fast becoming a thing for this blog. I’m sorry. I’m certain everyone would agree that this year really sucked.
Although I know many of you were able to take advantage of the lockdowns to be able to read more, I had quite the opposite experience. However I shall not delve into that in this post because what I wanna do right now is to just look back into my reading year and pick my top 8 reads, and maybe some honorable mentions on the side. I have only read 40 books as of posting this but I’m expecting to be able to read at least 3 more before the year ends. I’ll make the necessary updates soon!

This book made me SAD for two reasons: First, finishing it meant saying goodbye to Port Snow. I thoroughly enjoyed dipping into this series not just because of the characters, but also because of where all the books were set. Port Snow is definitely the perfect small-town romance setting and I no doubt fell in-love with it! Now that the fourth book of the fourth brother is out, I feel like there’s nothing to look forward to in that small town anymore and it leaves some sort of a hollow feeling inside me. *Gah, the drama I know! But you get what I mean.*
The second reason is ~ and god I hate to say this but it needed to be said ~ I didn’t quite like it. In fact, I was freaking annoyed with Brig the whole time because of how blind he was and it was just so frustrating to read! I kinda liked his being clueless in the beginning, it was still cute and all, but when it just dragged on and on until 80% of the book? Man, even I was hurting for Ruth the whole time! She’s was practically shoving herself to him and he still didn’t know what’s going on? I mean. Man. Pass.
I am giving this book an over-all rating of 3 mainly because I got to revisit Port Snow again and I got to see my favorite characters like Griffin and Rogan. But as much as I would like to love Brig ( I know he’s the sweetest of them all!), I was just left frustrated and annoyed.
