Moondance of Stonewylde (Stonewylde Book 2) by Kit Berry Review

Hey ForeverBookers, 
How are you all? I hope you’re great!
I’ve just finished “Moondance at Stonewylde” by Kit Berry, and I really, really loved it! It’s the second book in the "Stonewyldeseries.The books have to be read in order so please read Magus of Stonewylde” (book 1) first. Here’s my review of it: http://foreverbooks18.blogspot.com/2018/05/magus-of-stonewylde-stonewylde-book-1.html.
“Moondance of Stonewylde” continues the events of “Magus at Stonewylde”, where our main characters Yul and Sylvie are trying to find ways to be together, without getting in trouble with Magus or Sylvie’s mother, Miranda. Added to this, Sylvie’s Moondancing is far more prominent in this novel, as the title and cover suggests.
Sylvie and Yul start to develop deeper feelings for each other, which only incenses Magus and makes him more determined to keep them apart, no matter what the cost, even the lives of them. Magus’s brother, Clip plays a bigger role here, too. He actually helps Magus tort…

A Duke Like No Other (Playful Brides Book 9) by Valerie Bowman Review

Hi ForeverBookers,

I’ve just finished “A Duke Like No Other” and I liked it. 
“A Duke Like No Other” is about the relationship between Nicole, a headstrong girl and Mark, a man concerned with getting what he wants. The Playful Brides series is a collection of standalone novels. 
NetGalley gave me permission to read “A Duke Like No Other” so it’s thanks to them that I was able to read it! 
2 Stars!
I read this for: 
• Book Bingo on Facebook! It completes the challenge of reading a book about death. There’s a Murder mystery that takes place within “A Duke Like No Other” - https://m.facebook.com/events/1442935242483308. 
Spoilers Below...
“For the love of God, he’d nearly died for this promotion”
At the beginning of “A Duke Like No Other”, Mark’s biggest concern is getting the job of Home Secretary, “or die trying” to get it. He’s advised that he needs to be married and settled to get the job, though. 
“Lord Tottenham doesn’t want a secretary who’s a bachelor. He wants someone settled,”
shows that …

This Savage Song (Monsters Of Verity Book 1) by Victoria Schwab Review

Hey ForeverBookers, 

I’ve just finished This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab and it was freaking fantastic! 
4.5 Stars!
This Savage Song tells of a dystopian USA, where there are 3 types of monsters amongst humans, Corsai, Malchai, And Sunai. In this version of the USA, it’s split meaning that some of it is in Harker territory, while the other half is in Flynn territory. These rival territories make up part of the story. 
When August Flynn, the ruler of the Flynn territory’s son goes to school in Harker territory to spy on Kate Harker, the leader of Harker territory’s daughter that’s when the story really starts. As Kate and August get to know each other can they work together to figure out what’s happening in their world?  
I again read This Savage Song for a few different readathons:
* Reading Rivalry, for a book with over 400 pages, as well as another book that involves children - https://www.facebook.com/search/top/?q=reading%20rivalry,

Alice’s Adventures In Wonderland by Lewis Carrol Review

Hey ForeverBookers, 

I’ve just finished Alice’s Adventures In Wonderland by Lewis Carrol, because it was so short! I enjoyed it more than I thought I would, surprisingly. 
3 Stars!
Alice’s Adventures In Wonderland fulfils the challenges of:

* Reading Rivalry, for a book about children because Alice is a child and we’re seeing the events of the novel through her eyes! - https://www.facebook.com/search/top/?q=reading%20rivalry,
* Popsugar 2018 Challenge - A childhood classic that I’ve never read - https://www.popsugar.co.uk/smart-living/Reading-Challenge-2018-44211686
• Book Bingo on Facebook! It completed the goal of reading a book about travel because Alice travels to Wonderland. There’s quite a long section describing her decent into Wonderland even. ://m.facebook.com/events/1442935242483308
It’s a children’s book so it’s okay for anyone of any age to read! 
The characters of Alice’s Adventures In Wonderland are very unique. You won’t find a talking Dormouse or Cheshire Cat in just any story…

Magus of Stonewylde (Stonewylde Book 1) by Kit Berry Review

Hey ForeverBookers, 

I’ve just finished Magus Of Stonewylde by Kit Berry and I really loved it! It was a reread but the first time I read it, I was only 16/17, so it’s been a while. 
Magus Of Stonewylde is about a young girl, Sylvie who might die without getting the opportunity to go to Stonewylde, a magical place of healing and happiness. When she’s there, however things happen that make her question her values and who she is as a person. Our other main character, Yul is a poor villager who experiences abuse and anger at him from his father as well as other characters.

5 Stars!
