Starcrossed Series Review (No Spoilers)!

Hi ForeverBookers, 

Sorry I haven't been here recently. I've been too busy for reading :(. I've read the Starcrossed series, but this'll just be a quick series review as I didn't have time to review each book. 

Starcrossed (I have an indidual review for this but I thought I'd write another and put it with the others)...4 stars
This book was good as it focused on real life and there wasn't much of the mythological element. I think it's hard to write about Greek/Roman myths as no one knows what really happened. The romance in this book was okay. There wasn't too much to overwhelm the book as the title might suggest as when I see the word Starcrossed, I automatically think Starcrossed lovers.
The writing in this book was good. But the chapters were too long I thought. 

Dreamless...3 stars. 
This was the book that I had the most issues with in the trilogy. The story introduced a new male character that was meant to portray a rival love interest for the lead female character. I didn't like this book because it was too heavily focused on the new male character and the lead female's relationship. 
The story was okay. The lead female character has a mystery to work out and save the world from appocolipse. 

Goddess...4 stars
This book was better than the second and probably better than the first for me. This book was more focused on the secondary characters but still had its primary focus on the lead female trying to save the world. 
There were a few mistakes in this book but I still enjoyed it. 

Overall the series was a 3.75 stars for me! 

Look out to see what I'll be reading next soon...

Solstice at Stonewylde (Stonewylde Book 3) by Kit Berry Review

Hi ForeverBookers, 
I’ve just finished “Solstice at Stonewylde” by Kit Berry and I really liked it! It’s the third book in the Stonewylde series, the finale of the original trilogy. This was a reread as the first and second book were, as well. I don’t think I necessarily had as much fun as I did reading the previous two books because I didn’t think quite as much happened in it. Reading is subjective, though, so we all experience different thoughts and feelings as we read. That’s part of what I love about it. Anyway, there are 5 books in the Stonewylde series in total. The last 2 focus on a different storyline to the others, however, with the lead characters from the first three books as adults. 
4 Stars!
In “Solstice at Stonewylde” we’re still following Yul and Sylvie and their relationship where they’re trying to be together no matter what. Living in a society run by a tyrannical leader makes that hard, however. Magus, the leader of Stonewylde won’t let Yul and Sylvie be together and he…

Scythe (The Arc Of The Scythe Book 1) by Neil Shusterman Review

Hey ForeverBookers, 
I’ve just finished “Scythe” by Neil Shusterman. I was really surprised by how much I enjoyed it because it’s written by a male author. If you know me then you know that I generally don’t reach for books written by men. It had an exciting plot as well as great characters who were always surprising me. 

5 Stars!!!!!!!!!!!!
Citra and Rowan are our two main characters. They become apprentice Scythes at the beginning of “Scythe”. Michael Faraday (he’s known as Faraday in the novel), their mentor is a mysterious character, who I don’t think we’re ever meant to be sure of until the end. The first part of the plot surrounds these three characters as they get to know each other and Citra and Rowan learn what they’re going to have to do to actually become scythes. 
A scythe is a weapon. Scythes in this world are the people who control the population. “Scythe” is set in the future. “2042. It’s a year that every schoolchild knows.” This is significant because 2042 is only 24 year…

Magus of Stonewylde (Stonewylde Book 1) by Kit Berry Review

Hey ForeverBookers, 

I’ve just finished Magus Of Stonewylde by Kit Berry and I really loved it! It was a reread but the first time I read it, I was only 16/17, so it’s been a while. 
Magus Of Stonewylde is about a young girl, Sylvie who might die without getting the opportunity to go to Stonewylde, a magical place of healing and happiness. When she’s there, however things happen that make her question her values and who she is as a person. Our other main character, Yul is a poor villager who experiences abuse and anger at him from his father as well as other characters.

5 Stars!
Magus Of Stonewylde fulfils the challenges of:
• The Fae Readathon! Reading a book with a different magical creatures - Stonewylde is all about the magic of nature. As well as Moongazyness - https://www.facebook.com/events/174558623203831/
* Reading Rivalry, for a book with a feather on the cover. ACOFAS didn’t count towards this as the feather is just going off of the book. Instead there’s a bird on The Magus…
