The Forest Of Adventures (The Knight Trilogy #1) by Katie M John

Hi ForeverBookers, 

I have a new book to add to my list of favourites! The Forest Of Adventures is a great book if you love romance, adventure and history/fantasy as it has all of those elements. 

This book is mature in some aspects so I'd say only age 16+ readers should read it. It doesn't get graphic but sex is still brought up. 

We see from Mina's perspective throughout so the main girl in this story, who's seventeen years old. She's at college when she sits next to a boy, Blake Beldevier. He's a very charmingly mysterious guy. Mina is already in a relationship with Sam. A guy she's known from years before this book starts but she's attracted to Blake. When Sam sees Mina walking with Blake one afternoon at college, he gets angry and has a car crash. The rest of the book centres around this accident and Mina's relationship with Blake as well as other characters, her mother for instance who has always wanted Mina to marry Sam when she's old enough. Mina herself doesn't want this though after meeting Blake. This is quite an ista-love book, which I love but if you don't like that then maybe it wouldn't be for you. 

There's also another plot point. The Arthurian legend sub plot was interesting to read. It's what the fantasy subplot is based on. You could tell that the author had done her research but that she'd also changed certain aspects of history to fit in with this story. I'd never read a book even slightly based on the Legend Of King Arthur so this was interesting to me. 

The characters were well developed. I could see myself in Mina. And Blake has a past, partly dark but you could tell that he's the hero in this story. The evil characters were great. You can tell they're going to cause havoc in the rest of the trilogy. 

I'm giving this book 5 stars because I loved it! The slightly new adult elements helped me enjoy it more, I think because it seemed more grown up that regular YA stories. If I could have changed one thing, it would have been seeing a few of the chapters from Blake's point of view, just because I think this would have opened his character up a little bit more if we could have seen from his POV. 

The sequel to this book will be great as it will expand on the plot points bought up in The Forest Of Adventures. I can't wait to read it and review it for you guys.

Have any of you read this? What did you think? Would you read this if you haven't already? I really enjoyed it as you can see! 

I look forward to choosing my next read soon!

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…
