Last Sacrifice (Vampire Academy Book 6) Review

Hey ForeverBookers, I've just finished Last Sacrifice (#6 of Vampire Academy) And it was really good! 

The book takes you on an adventure more so than the other books I believe. Blood Promise and Last Sacrifice are my favourite books of this series because we see Rose fight and stand up for herself more than ever before, I believe. Blood Promise was more about her fighting for the man whom she loved, whereas Last Sacrifice has Rose standing up for everything she believes in!

SPOILERS below for if you haven't read this book OR series! 

Last Sacifice takes the reader on a journey through watching Rose, Dimitri, Sydney, Adrian, Lissa, Christian and other minimal characters stand up for what they all believe in. 

At the end of Spirit Bound (book 5) Rose was accused of killing Queen Tatiana (an offence that would lead to a death sentence for the murderer). Because of this potential death sentence, Rose, Dimitri, and Sydney (a character from Blood Promise) go on the run in the hope of finding Lissa's long lost relative so she can be Queen of the Moroi race. If Lissa is Queen it's thought that Rose won't be charged with murdering Tatiana. They travel far to find what they need to clear Rose of any charges. They come across a camp of Moroi who live by their own rules, not conforming to the majority, 2 slightly villainous characters from previous books, one of which helps turn a Strigoi into a Moroi, that Moroi then helps them by pointing them in the direction of Lissa's long lost sibling. While this is going on for Rose through the bond that Rose and Lissa have we also see what happens to Lissa back at court. 

Lissa, is trying to become Queen to take the pressure off of Rose. The court is busy trying to find a new queen after Rose and Dimitri break out of court to do what they're doing above. This means that Rose doesn't have to hurry quite as much to find out a) who killed Tatiana and b) who Lissa's brother or sister is. She also doesn't have to rush too much to get back. 

We do get to see some romance for both Rose and Lissa separately. Rose's romance was a bit back and forth between Dimitri and Adrian but I'm overall pleased with who she chose to be with. Lissa's romance was only with one person whom I didn't really like in the first book but by the last book, I liked him.

I don't want to put who the sibling is but we've seen them in other books. I'm not going to reveal who did kill Tatiana either as that's also a major spoiler (if you know one or both of these things, please DON'T comment who they are as they're both big surprises). I was shocked when I read who killed Tatiana. 

Overall, I really enjoyed Last Sacrifice and the series as a whole. I give Last Sacrifice 5 stars because it had everything I love: a great plot, romance, humour, action etc. While I'll be sorry to say goodbye to these characters for now, I'll see most of them again when I read the Bloodlines series, which I look forward to doing sometime 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 Thousandth Floor by Katharine McGee

Hi ForeverBookers, 
I've just finished The Thousandth Floor by Katharine McGee and I thought is was a GREAT start to a series! I got an E-arc from NetGalley. The release date is 30th August 2016.
At first I thought it was going to be a dystopian novel but I hadn't read that it was a cross between Gossip Girl and Pretty Little Liars set in the future so if I'd have read that I would have gone into it knowing what it was about more. It certainly starts off as more Gossip Girl and goes to Pretty Little Liars as you go through.

I don't like dystopian so that's why I thought I wouldn't like it. When it started it gave me dystopian vibes as well. It became more of a contemporary set in the future as it went along. 
You're reading from 5 different perspectives, which is quite unique in YA/NA reads. These different perspectives range from the weak (at the bottom of the tower, to the rich (at the top of the tower). 
There are scenes of a sexual nature (although nothing i…
