Forever (Book 3 in the Mercy Falls Trilogy) by Maggie Stiefvater

A great finale! 

This book had it all! It did have a few boring slow moments but it also had fast paced action moments. I love some romance as well and that was in there too. 

While this book did have a few slower sections as I wrote above it did have short chapters, which I appreciated as I could read them easily without having to put the book down. All of the Shiver series had short chapters actually. This kept me really gripped to the story in this case. The last 100 pages or so really had me gripped...I stayed up until late to finish the book. 

Forever carries on and finishes what Shiver and Linger start. Read those books before you read the rest of this review because there are slight SPOILERS! 

Grace is still a wolf where Forever starts. Sam wants her to be human (like him at that point of time). He and Isabel and Cole (two characters from in Linger) try to find Grace but they are unable to find her at first. When they do find her she stays with Sam at the estate that the werewolves live on when they're human. Isabel's father wants to kill all of the wolves for so say killing her brother (if you've read Shiver and Linger then you know what really happened). This is bad because Sam doesn't know if he'll be able to keep Grace or Cole human for long enough. We can really see a friendship developing between Sam and Cole in this book. 
We see the problematic relationship between Grace and her parents come to fruition as well as killing's and savings as well. 

I give this book 4.75 out of 5 stars because it really was a read full of emotion, drama, comedy and supernatural. The first time I read it I can remember feeling it was good but not as great as this time reading it. That goes for the whole Shiver series. I don't think I really appreciated it for what it was back when I was younger. I'm really glad I've reread it now. 

Stand by for my next TBR tub pick. I wonder what it'll be...

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…
