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: http://foreverbooks18.blogspot.co.uk/?m=1. 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!!!

This Side Of Murder (Verity Kent #1) by Anna Lee Huber Review...

Hi ForeverBookers, 

I've just finished This Side Of Murder by Anna Lee Hubert and it was great! This isn't my normal type of read but I still enjoyed it. 

NetGalley allowed me access to This Side Of Murder so thanks to them for letting me read and review it.

This Side Of Murder tells the story of widower, Verity. She's going to a house party on an island near England. This story is really about Verity trying to figure out a code as she was a secret code breaker in the war. Verity lost her husband in the War, or so she thinks...
4 Stars
The book is set just after World War 1 so there are some customs that are different to now, smoking being seen as a good or relaxing thing, for example. 
Verity meets another attendee of the party, Max on the way there. They strike up a friendship. The other attendees are rather hostile to Verity. The other women treat her terribly and the other men just seem to ignore her. 
This is a mystery novel where we're trying to work out lots of things.…

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…

This Mortal Coil by Emily Suvada Review

Hi ForeverBookers, 

I've just finished an awesome book! I got This Mortal Coil from NetGalley so thanks to them for letting me read it. It was soooo good!! 
5 Stars!!!
This Mortal Coil is a dystopian story that tells the story of Catarina who, along with friends has to find out who she is among the strife of a deadly plague that's killing off the worlds population through hydra clouds. 
The story is told from first person POV, which I loved! I thought the author did a great job at tackling different emotions that our main character, Catarina went through. 
There are too many good parts to quote. I'm not going to do that as this review would be so long if I did but I've summarised what happens below...SPOILERS!!!  
We see Catarina start as a shy girl with not much experience of the outside world become a warrior. Some may class this as a "special snowflake story", whereby Cat is the special one that everyone has been waiting for. She doesn't know this, tho…
