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.

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…
