Yellow Brick War (Dorothy Must Die Book 3) by Danielle Paige Review

Hi readers, I'm sorry it has taken me SO long to put this review up for a relatively short book. I've been really busy and I haven't had time to read :(. 

Yellow Brick War starts from where The Wicked Will Rise finished. Amy and Nox have both just battled to try to save Oz. 

Spoilers below...

In the first pages of the third book we're thrust back into the action straight away. We see Mombi, Gurt and Glamora asking for the next witch to step up and join the circle. Amy thinks this is her but is a little confused when she realises it's Nox. Nox does step up to save the place he's called home but he knows that a relationship between him and Amy is forbidden when he does this. I, personally love a forbidden romance in a book so I was all up for this. 

Amy is told by the witches to go back to Kanas and find shoes that Dorothy left there. They will be the only thing that will let her defeat her. She does this because she wants to check on her mother more than for what the witches want. 

When she returns to Kansas alone, Amy finds her mother living in a flat with a boyfriend. Her mum seems to have calmed down some since Amy left and isn't as wild anymore. The shoes are at the school so Amy has to go back there and get detention so she can clean up to find them. Madison, her enemy from before Oz becomes her friend and helps her as well as Dustin Sr and Jr, Madison's boyfriend and son. What is revealed while she's at the school is surprising though. I don't want to spoil it here as it's what makes this book exciting. 

When Amy returns to Oz after Kansas she's back into trying to pinpoint Dorothy's whereabouts with the witches. Before Amy left Oz Nox was cold towards her. It's only when she comes back that Nox begins to realise what he feels for Amy is important. As their relationship continues to develop, they find both Dorothy and Glinda. While Glamora deals with Glinda - Amy is left to fight Dorothy. She does this with the help of Nox. She also destroys the castle of the Emerald City but she does "defeat" Dorothy. I put defeat in quote marks because we're not actually sure that she is defeated. Glamora becomes merged with Glinda so no one is sure if she's good or evil. 

There will be another book!!! I cannot wait to read it as I love these stories. I really hope there's more romance in the next book. I've got a feeling there will be as Amy and Nox have to help Madison and Dustin defeat someone other than Dorothy and Glinda/Glamora. Someone from their world. 

I'm giving this book 4 stars because the only thing I would have added to it were more Amy and Nox moments. I love the way the author writes her version of Oz. It sounds so whimsical and fairytale like. 

Have any of you read this series? If so what do/did you think of it? Did you like it as much as I did? Comment below and tell me.

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…
