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. Alice is a very curious little girl, and I laughed while reading some parts of this, too! 

The animated Disney film follows the original story quite closely. There were only a few parts that I didn’t recognise from the movie. 

I’m not going to write anything more because it’s such a short book and a children’s book at that, it’s quite easy to just pick up and read one afternoon, like I’ve done today. I will say that Alice’s Adventures In Wonderland brings together prose and poetry in a way that I didn’t find annoying. I appreciated this!

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…

Starlight Nights (732 Days #2) by Stacey Kade Review

Hey ForeverBookers,
“Starlight Nights”, the first book that I read this year was fantastic! It was like a soap opera with how many storylines it had. There was a love story, a selfish parent story, a drugs story, a friendship story, along with more. The book is long enough to fit all those different stories too as it’s 400 pages.

"Starlight Nights" is the second book in a series of linked contemporary standalone novels. I say linked because there’s a character featured as a side character who’s a main character in the first book 738 Days by Stacey Kade, too. I read this as a standalone, though and it was fine. 

I read “Starlight Nights" for the “A book that’s published in 2018” goal on the Popsugar Reading Challenge. 
Netgalley were kind enough to grant me a review copy of “Starlight Nights” so it’s thanks to them as well as the publisher that I’ve been able to read and review this...
Calista and Eric are the main characters. “Starlight Nights” is told from both of their per…

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.…
