The Vets At Hope Green - Part 2 by Sheila Norton Review

Hey ForeverBookers,

I've just finished Part 2 of The Vets At Hope Green, which is subtitled "Follow Your Heart" and I really enjoyed it again. I got The Vets At Hope Green Part 2 from NetGalley so thank you NetGalley again!

The Vets At Hope Green is at the moment a series of 4 or 5 parts to a full novel. In summer 2017 it will be released as a full novel. 

We still follow Sam, who decides to follow her heart and move in with her grandmother who lives in Hope Green. In Part 1, Sam went to visit her Grandmother during a rocky time with her boyfriend. At the beginning of Part 2, Sam and that boyfriend break up due to not wanting the same things in life. Sam's grandmother had losses of her own to deal with as well, in part 1. In London, Sam worked at a Vets. Before she leaves London, there's a cat that's brought in. Sam feels sorry for it and so takes it to her grandmother in the hopes that she'll look after it and be happier again. This seems to work. 

New friendships are made and progress on a relationship for Sam. I don't want to spoil who the other person is. At the end of this part there's a cliffhanger, which I again don't want to spoil but I'm excited to read Part 3 soon. 

I'm going to give part 2 4 stars. I didn't enjoy it quite as much as the first part but it still holds promise. With many book series' the second book isn't as good as the first, in my opinion anyway so I think of this like that.

Part 3 of this novel will release late February, I think.

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…
