The Broken Lake NO SPOILER Review.

Hi ForeverBookers, 

The Broken Lake is the second book in The Pace series by Shelena Shorts. It follows a young adult girl who falls in love with a guy who's almost immortal. 

The Pace (book 1) ended on a cliffhanger so we see how that has affected the two main characters at the beginning of the book. The story just really continues on with the mystery and it is a really great book and series if you like romance. If you don't like romance the I really wouldn't start reading this as it's very romance heavy. 

The end of the book is okay as it leads to the third book in the series, so yes...another cliffhanger! 

I gave this book 4 out of 5 stars because it wasn't as good as the first but certainly wasn't terrible either. 

The thing that I didn't like so much were that more of the story was based on the friendships with side characters than the actual romance. That's why it didn't quite get 5 stars from me. However, I did love a certain scene toward the end of the book <3. 

Next I'm reading book #3 - The Iron Quill

Please leave comments below about what you think of this series if you have read it. But no spoilers in case someone else reading this hasn't and is interested in doing so. 

Thanks!

The Fifth Letter by Nicola Moriarty Review.

Hi ForeverBookers, a belated Happy New Year to you all! I hope you all had a great Christmas as well. The Fifth Letter was my first read of 2017, and I enjoyed it. It wasn't all that I thought it would be but it still held my attention.

I got The Fifth Letter as a NetGalley arc so thank you to NetGalley for giving me the opportunity to read it.


The Fifth Letter is published on January 24th 2017 but it's is very much an ADULT read! It's is about 4 girls, Joni, Deb, Trina and Eden who were friends at school. They go away to a house for a get together trip in their 30's. The main part of the story is set while the girls are in their 30's. One of them has the idea for them each to write a secret - something they've never told anyone else before but it's kept confidential. Then each one of the girls will read a random secret, and try to work out who it belongs to.

It's  set in Australia, which is a little different as most books I read are set in the USA/th…

The Bear And The Nightingale by Katherine Arden Review

Hi ForeverBookers,

I got The Bear And The Nightingale for review from NetGalley but I only gave it 1.5 stars (2 on Goodreads).

While I enjoyed certain elements of The Bear And The Nightingale, I found a lot of it to be quite confusing. The only thing that kept me reading was Vasya and her untoward behaviour to others as well as her relationships towards the end. I just skipped over the religious stuff as that didn't interest me in the slightest. The folkloric elements, while complex were again a little confusing.
This is a book to be read around Halloween/Winter I think as some of the elements are rather creepy. Because of these creepy elements I'd say this is an ADULT novel as well. It's also set in a cold Russia. 
I don't want to write spoilers at all in this review because I didn't understand all of the elements as I've said above and so there's every chance that I could get it wrong.
I'd give this book a 1.5 stars (2 on Goodreads) because I didn…

The Thousandth Floor by Katharine McGee

Hi ForeverBookers, 
I've just finished The Thousandth Floor by Katharine McGee and I thought is was a GREAT start to a series! I got an E-arc from NetGalley. The release date is 30th August 2016.
At first I thought it was going to be a dystopian novel but I hadn't read that it was a cross between Gossip Girl and Pretty Little Liars set in the future so if I'd have read that I would have gone into it knowing what it was about more. It certainly starts off as more Gossip Girl and goes to Pretty Little Liars as you go through.

I don't like dystopian so that's why I thought I wouldn't like it. When it started it gave me dystopian vibes as well. It became more of a contemporary set in the future as it went along. 
You're reading from 5 different perspectives, which is quite unique in YA/NA reads. These different perspectives range from the weak (at the bottom of the tower, to the rich (at the top of the tower). 
There are scenes of a sexual nature (although nothing i…
