Favourite Books Of 2016!

Hey ForeverBookers,

WOW! What a year 2016 was...I surpassed my Goodreads goal with 76 books (my goal was 75)...Here's my top 10 list of favourite books (I just read them in 2016. Not all were published in 2016).

10) Divine By Mistake by PC Cast - a mythological romance. It's ADULT.

9) The Hollow by Jessica Verday - a YA urban paranormal, using certain parts of The Legend Of Sleepy Hollow.

8) Crave Me by Geneva Lee - A contemporary ADULT love story.

7) Timeless by Gail Carriger - a cute and funny historical, paranormal story. I'd say this was adult too.

6) Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige - a great story featuring elements of The Wizard Of Oz. For aged +14 readers.

5) A Year And A Day by Isabelle Broom - a cute contemporary with enchanting and mystical elements. Could be a trigger for those who have gone through a loss though.

4) Ascend by Amanda Hocking - another great fantasy. I love the main couple in this. One scene that could be classed as new adult.

3) The Thousandth Floor by Katherine McGee - I loved this dystopian and I normally dislike all dystopian reads. I love all the romances in this story. It's a mash up of Gossip Girl and Pretty Little Liars. Certainly for upper YA readers (16+).

2) Cinder by Marissa Meyer - my favourite book of The Lunar Chronicles. I love Kai and Cinder's relationship and we see the most of that develop in this book.

1) A Court Of Mist And Fury (ACOMAF) by Sarah J Mass - my favourite book of the year! I LOVE Rhys, and how he is with Feyrah. It only took me 3 days to read this and it's over 600 pages!! Can't wait for A Court Of Mist And Ruin!!! Definitely new adult though so for older teens and adults.

Most of the books above have reviews on my blog: If they don't have a review, it obviously wasn't because they were bad. I was just too excited to get onto their sequel(s).

What were some of your favourite reads and why? Happy 2017!!!

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…
