The Sin Eater's Daughter (The Sin Eater's Daughter #1) by Melinda Salisbury Review.

Hi ForeverBooker's, the Sin Eaters Daughter is really good book of revenge, love, intrigue, heartbreak, truths and finding oneself! 

There are some minor spoilers below. 

The Sin Eater's Daughter tells the story of Twylla, the Sin Eater's daughter who can't be touched by anyone. If she does touch anyone they'll die. 
Twylla is guarded at all times by two guards at first and then just one. This one guard, she falls hopelessly in love with because he is the only one who she sees day in, day out. The author made the love story really sweet and quite believable to me even though it was a little instant lovey. Because Twylla didn't see anyone else throughout her day, apart from her betrothed sometimes it was believable. Because of the betrothed and the guard there is a love triangle in this book but it wasn't an annoying love triangle.  
The Queen of this story is evil. She's told lies to everyone and they believe her because she is Queen. The author made it easy to dislike the Queen from the beginning of the book as she completely took control of whatever Twylla did. She made sure Twylla didn't do anything but stay in her Tower all day. 
Something is revealed towards the end of the book that really came to me as a surprise. I don't want to spoil it so I'll just say that Twylla is very upset at the end of the book because of events that befall her. 
I don't really know where book 2 will go but I can't wait to find out...

I give this book 5 stars because it had everything that I love. A good plot, a forbidden romance, and a fantasy setting that was different to the world we live in.

Tales From The Shadowhunter Academy by Cassandra Clare, Sarah Rees Brennan, Maureen Johnson and Robin Wasserman Review

Tales Of The Shadowhunter Academy Review...
Tales Of The Shadowhunter Academy chronicles Simon Lewis’ time as a ShadowHunter in training. 
4.5 Stars as a collection (5 on Goodreads)!
I’m using TFTSA as my book by two authors, as it’s by multiple authors. If anyone wants me to name just one story by two authors in the collection, then I choose Born To An Endless Night. I explain why in my review, below...

Welcome To ShadowHunter Academy
I loved this short story! 
5 Stars!
We get introduced to our main characters from the previous TMI books. Simon, our main character is entertaining as he tries to remember who he is or was before he lost his memories in City Of Heavenly Fire. We get a cameo from Isabelle who offers her heart to Simon. He however says that he isn’t interested in a relationship until he can remember who he was.
The new characters we’re introduced to are either students or teachers at Shadowhunter Academy. One student in particular, George, becomes Simon’s…

Starlight Nights (732 Days #2) by Stacey Kade Review

Hey ForeverBookers,
“Starlight Nights”, the first book that I read this year was fantastic! It was like a soap opera with how many storylines it had. There was a love story, a selfish parent story, a drugs story, a friendship story, along with more. The book is long enough to fit all those different stories too as it’s 400 pages.

"Starlight Nights" is the second book in a series of linked contemporary standalone novels. I say linked because there’s a character featured as a side character who’s a main character in the first book 738 Days by Stacey Kade, too. I read this as a standalone, though and it was fine. 

I read “Starlight Nights" for the “A book that’s published in 2018” goal on the Popsugar Reading Challenge. 
Netgalley were kind enough to grant me a review copy of “Starlight Nights” so it’s thanks to them as well as the publisher that I’ve been able to read and review this...
Calista and Eric are the main characters. “Starlight Nights” is told from both of their per…

This Side Of Murder (Verity Kent #1) by Anna Lee Huber Review...

Hi ForeverBookers, 

I've just finished This Side Of Murder by Anna Lee Hubert and it was great! This isn't my normal type of read but I still enjoyed it. 

NetGalley allowed me access to This Side Of Murder so thanks to them for letting me read and review it.

This Side Of Murder tells the story of widower, Verity. She's going to a house party on an island near England. This story is really about Verity trying to figure out a code as she was a secret code breaker in the war. Verity lost her husband in the War, or so she thinks...
4 Stars
The book is set just after World War 1 so there are some customs that are different to now, smoking being seen as a good or relaxing thing, for example. 
Verity meets another attendee of the party, Max on the way there. They strike up a friendship. The other attendees are rather hostile to Verity. The other women treat her terribly and the other men just seem to ignore her. 
This is a mystery novel where we're trying to work out lots of things.…
