Goodreads Monday | 05.17.2021

Hello, book lovers! 💕

I’m back with another Goodreads Monday, a is a weekly meme that was started by Lauren’s Page Turners. The meme is pretty easy to follow; to participate simply choose a random book from your TBR and explain why you want to read it! I originally saw this post on A Little Haze Book Blog, who is amazing and you should definitely check their blog out.

I use a random number generator to pick the book from my Goodreads TBR. This way, I have no idea what book I’m going to end up talking about in today’s post.

So without any further ado, let’s get onto the book that I’m going to discuss!

So the book that I chose based on the random number generator was The Last True Poets of the Sea by Julia Drake. This is a book that I randomly added to my TBR last year because I found it on Audible as an audiobook included with my membership. I’ve never heard about it before I found it, and I’m not really even sure what it’s about to be honest.

The following synopsis is from Goodreads:

The Larkin family isn’t just lucky—they persevere. At least that’s what Violet and her younger brother, Sam, were always told. When the Lyric sank off the coast of Maine, their great-great-great-grandmother didn’t drown like the rest of the passengers. No, Fidelia swam to shore, fell in love, and founded Lyric, Maine, the town Violet and Sam returned to every summer.

But wrecks seem to run in the family. Tall, funny, musical Violet can’t stop partying with the wrong people. And, one beautiful summer day, brilliant, sensitive Sam attempts to take his own life.

Shipped back to Lyric while Sam is in treatment, Violet is haunted by her family’s missing piece – the lost shipwreck she and Sam dreamed of discovering when they were children. Desperate to make amends, Violet embarks on a wildly ambitious mission: locate the Lyric, lain hidden in a watery grave for over a century.

She finds a fellow wreck hunter in Liv Stone, an amateur local historian whose sparkling intelligence and guarded gray eyes make Violet ache in an exhilarating new way. Whether or not they find the Lyric, the journey Violet takes-and the bridges she builds along the way-may be the start of something like survival.

I completely forgot that I had I added it to my TBR, but now it’s one that I really want to read now.

Based on the synopsis, it gives me siren vibes, and I’m definitely intrigued to get to it. It seems like the perfect summer read, being on the ocean and all that. And from the reviews I read on Goodreads, it seems that it’s a very comforting, but hard-hitting YA book. And I’m here for it.

I look forward to getting to it, which will hopefully be soon!

So there you have it. That’s the book that I picked for Goodreads Monday! Have you read this book? What did you think about it if you did? I’d love to chat about it in the comments below!
