Complete Me (Royals Saga Book 7) by Geneva Lee Review

Hi ForeverBookers, I've just finished Complete Me and it was great! I enjoyed how we got to see all three of the already established couples here, instead of the book just focusing on one as the previous trilogies in the series did. 

NOTE: Royals is an ADULT series with sexual themes in! 

SPOILERS if you haven't read the other Royals' books. 

We see from King Alexanders point of view instead of one of the girls' in Complete Me. This was an interesting choice of the author's, I thought. I don't normally like it when a female author writes from a male POV or when a male author writes from a female POV but this was okay. That may have been because of the 3rd person parts as they kind of broke the story up. 

Smith and Belle were my favourite couple from the series so far, I think so I was pleased that their story continued here, along with Clara and Alexander's. In Royals' books 3-6 we see Belle meet Smith and fall in love. We see them want to fight for their relationship above all else, battling their pasts to be together. In the previous books we've seen them want to have a family but they were unsuccessful. This want continues in Complete Me and let's just say that I'm excited for Royals' Book 8 to see what happens. 

Clara and Alexander fight in Complete Me, which they hadn't really done in the previous books. We see them separated for a little bit. This was another part I enjoyed seeing Alexander's perspective from. He clearly loved and wanted Clara in every way. He just struggled with knowing how exactly to show it. Most couples fight at some point in their lives so it was good to see this represented here, in Complete Me. I'm also excited to see just wear their story goes in Royals' Book 8, as well. 

Spoilers for Complete Me...

Lastly we see our "new" couple, Edward and David. I say "new" because they haven't really been a couple in the previous books. Edward has been a side character throughout and we've known he's gay for most of those books but we haven't really seen him with David. Edward and David get married in this book. Out of the three main couples, this is the one that I dislike the most. I understand the author wanting to support gay rights but I just feel that Edward and David weren't represented as much as Clara and Alexander and Belle and Smith. I felt the wedding was very rushed and just skimmed over. We might see more of them in books 8 and 9 as we've had trilogies with the other main couples, although with the other stories going where they're going this seems doubtful. 

There's another plot going on besides all of the romances in Complete Me. This is about Alexander and Smith trying to vanquish what happened to them in the past, especially Smith. While I enjoyed this, what I was most interested in was the romance so this kind of flew over my head, a little. 

Overall then I enjoyed Complete Me. I had a few issues with equalling the story out between all of the couples but I'm still excited to see where Royals' book 8 and onwards goes. I'm therefore giving Complete Me 3/3.5 Stars. 

Have you read this? What did you think? Without spoilers. 

Who's your favourite couple of this series?

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…
