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...

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 Futures by Anna Pitoniak Review

Hey ForeverBookers, 
Yesterday, I finished a contemporary book called The Futures by Anna Pitoniak and it was great! This would have been what I read for Read A Hyped Book for the booktubathon, as I've heard a few Booktubers hype it up.
It's now available to buy/download too. I read the arc from NetGalley so thanks to them for giving me access.
It's told in duel POV format, where we see how the main events of the book affect both our main characters, Evan and Julia. The perspectives were quite easy to tell apart as each chapter is titled with the name of the character it's coming from. Also it switched every chapter as well as the personalities differing throughout. I normally don't like it when a female author writes a male POV or vice versa because I don't think they know what men feel, just as I don't think men know what women feel. I, however thought that Pitoniak did a good job in this case as the story deals more with emotion than sex, I guess. The Futur…
