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…

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…
