A Raven's Touch (A Raven's Touch Book 1) by Linda Bloodworth Review.

Wow, this book was great!!!

It had everything that I look for in a good read - action, adventure, danger, and a swoon worthy romance. 

What starts off as quite a slow book certainly develops and picks up speed quickly. While I enjoyed the first few chapters, the story didn't really get going until a few chapters later. By around about a quarter of the way in I was really hooked. 

I loved Justice's character and how she stood up for what she believed in from start to end, while still being scared and worried about the future. She let others help her in her quest as well. This all made the story believable. 

The story is about Justice, who is just an ordinary girl to begin with. She experiences pain in lots of forms throughout the book. Some physical but most mental. At about the half way point she discovers something about herself with her parent's help. This discovery is pretty shocking to her. Her closest friend helps her through this transition and Justice learns that friend is also not all she seems.  

She meets a male character who has secrets and falls in love with him as the book progresses. He falls for her as well. There are tragedies as well, one for minor characters near the beginning and one for Justice in the middle. The male character is with her to help her through her own, personal grief. 

The personal attack is because of a kind of love triangle but it's not the annoying kind of love triangle. We never see the lead male character with the enemy but there are hints that they've been together in the past. The evil character wants the male to choose her but he chooses Justice instead. This inspires most of the hatred. At least in this book. The male character been looking for Justice for years - his soulmate - and he's finally found her. 

We meet about 5 main characters in A Raven's Touch. Justice and her beau, the best friend and her boyfriend, and a helper sent from a different world. Each character was lovable in their own way. 

I also liked the references to Sailor Moon, and the fact the lead male character has the same name as a character in the English dub of that. Sailor Moon also fights for what she believes in, just like Justice. 

I give this book 4 stars because there were a few elements that I would've liked to have seen drawn out but over all I loved this book as it showed real promise and had a unique storyline! I can't wait to read the next book.

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…
