Perfect Match by Zoe May Review

Hi ForeverBookers,

I’ve just finished another contemporary book called Perfect Match by Zoe May, and I enjoyed it. 

3 Stars!

The story follows Sophia, who lives with her best friend Kate. At the beginning of the book, Kate sets Sophia up on a dating website with a fake profile, because she can’t seem to find a date who’s worth it. Sophia has had 71 dates, all of which haven’t worked out for one reason or another. She gets a lot of responses to the fake profile but one sticks out, among the rest. The response is from a guy called Daniel. Sophia thinks she’s found her “perfect match” but has she? You’ll have to read to find out! 

I would say it’s more for over 18 year olds as there are a couple of sex scenes and some bad language involved. 

I’m not including a spoiler section (apart from the brief summary, I’ve given above) because at the beginning of the arc it says that I’m not allowed to reproduce, transmit or store any information from it. 

What did I like about “Perfect Match”?

I liked the characters. Sophia seemed very human, as did Daniel. 

I liked how the novel is a standalone - I know, shocker! It just seemed to wrap up nicely,  🙂.

What didn’t I like about “Perfect Match”?

I didn’t think “Perfect Match” was “a laugh out loud, romantic comedy” as it claimed to be at the start. I don’t think I laughed, once. It was entertaining but not funny. 

The novel dragged in a few places. I thought some of the scenes could have been made a lot shorter. 

I thought it was kind of predictable what happens at the end.

Overall, I didn’t hate “Perfect Match” but I didn’t love it either. It was a light hearted story that I found entertaining, rather than groundbreaking. That’s why I’m giving it a 3 star rating! 

Does “Perfect Match” sound like something you’d like to read?

Tales From The Shadowhunter Academy by Cassandra Clare, Sarah Rees Brennan, Maureen Johnson and Robin Wasserman Review

Tales From The Shadowhunter Academy chronicles Simon Lewis’ time as a ShadowHunter in training. 
4.5 Stars as a collection (5 on Goodreads)!
I’m using TFTSA as my book by two authors, as it’s by multiple authors. If anyone wants me to name just one story by two authors in the collection, then I choose Born To An Endless Night. I explain why in my review, below...

Welcome To ShadowHunter Academy
I loved this short story! 
5 Stars!
We get introduced to our main characters from the previous TMI books. Simon, our main character is entertaining as he tries to remember who he is or was before he lost his memories in City Of Heavenly Fire. We get a cameo from Isabelle who offers her heart to Simon. He however says that he isn’t interested in a relationship until he can remember who he was.
The new characters we’re introduced to are either students or teachers at Shadowhunter Academy. One student in particular, George, becomes Simon’s best friend supporting him through his worries a…

Solstice at Stonewylde (Stonewylde Book 3) by Kit Berry Review

Hi ForeverBookers, 
I’ve just finished “Solstice at Stonewylde” by Kit Berry and I really liked it! It’s the third book in the Stonewylde series, the finale of the original trilogy. This was a reread as the first and second book were, as well. I don’t think I necessarily had as much fun as I did reading the previous two books because I didn’t think quite as much happened in it. Reading is subjective, though, so we all experience different thoughts and feelings as we read. That’s part of what I love about it. Anyway, there are 5 books in the Stonewylde series in total. The last 2 focus on a different storyline to the others, however, with the lead characters from the first three books as adults. 
4 Stars!
In “Solstice at Stonewylde” we’re still following Yul and Sylvie and their relationship where they’re trying to be together no matter what. Living in a society run by a tyrannical leader makes that hard, however. Magus, the leader of Stonewylde won’t let Yul and Sylvie be together and he…

Scythe (The Arc Of The Scythe Book 1) by Neil Shusterman Review

Hey ForeverBookers, 
I’ve just finished “Scythe” by Neil Shusterman. I was really surprised by how much I enjoyed it because it’s written by a male author. If you know me then you know that I generally don’t reach for books written by men. It had an exciting plot as well as great characters who were always surprising me. 

5 Stars!!!!!!!!!!!!
Citra and Rowan are our two main characters. They become apprentice Scythes at the beginning of “Scythe”. Michael Faraday (he’s known as Faraday in the novel), their mentor is a mysterious character, who I don’t think we’re ever meant to be sure of until the end. The first part of the plot surrounds these three characters as they get to know each other and Citra and Rowan learn what they’re going to have to do to actually become scythes. 
A scythe is a weapon. Scythes in this world are the people who control the population. “Scythe” is set in the future. “2042. It’s a year that every schoolchild knows.” This is significant because 2042 is only 24 year…
