Eliza And Her Monsters by Francesca Zappa Review

Hi ForeverBookers, 

Who watched the Royal Wedding earlier? I know that I did. 
I’ve just finished “Eliza And Her Monsters”(after watching all of the Royal Wedding) and I enjoyed it. Certain elements of it weren’t to my liking but overall it was a good story. 
3 Stars!
I read “Eliza And Her Monsters” for a few readathons, again:
* Reading Rivalry, a book with over 300 pages.

“Eliza And Her Monsters” is a contemporary YA novel. Eliza is a stay at home, in her bedroom kind of teenage girl. She doesn’t like doing things at school or outside with others. She’s also the author of this webco…

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:

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!
Magus Of Stonewylde fulfils the challenges of:
• The Fae Readathon! Reading a book with a different magical creatures - Stonewylde is all about the magic of nature. As well as Moongazyness - https://www.facebook.com/events/174558623203831/
* Reading Rivalry, for a book with a feather on the cover. ACOFAS didn’t count towards this as the feather is just going off of the book. Instead there’s a bird on The Magus…

A Court Of Frost And Starlight (ACOTAR 3.5) Review

Hey ForeverBookers, 
 I’ve just finished ACOFAS and I’m soooo sad! I absolutely LOVED it, don’t get me wrong but it’s the last book from Feyre’s (and Rhys’s?) perspectives, as I understand it! It was just about everything that I wanted to happen as well as a few other bits and pieces too! 
5 Stars! 
I HIGHLY recommend the ACOTAR books if you want a romantic, action packed fae read! 
ACOFAS wraps up Feyre and Rhys’s story (from their POV’s, anyway), with the Winter Solstice. Feyre experiences new things as High Lady of the Night Court, as well as making decisions about her life as a 20/21 girl, while Rhys is making sure the lands are okay, as well as trying to redeem himself. We also get 3rd person chapters from some side characters. It was interesting to have these characters on their own. 
I would have LOVED it if ACOFAS had been a full length novel because it just wasn’t enough. I NEED more of both Feyre and Rhys in my life!!!
I read ACOFAS, again for several readathons.

A Court Of Wings And Ruin (ACOTAR Book 3) Review

Hey ForeverBookers,
How are you all doing today? It’s been a nice sunny day where I am. A little on the chilly side still, though. 
I’ve just finished A Court Of Wings And Ruin or ACOWAR as it’s maybe better known by Sarah J Maas and it’s made it to my Number 1 read of 2018 so far, just as ACOMAF, A Court Of Mist and Fury made it to my Number 1 read of 2016. I chose to read it now for a number of reasons. The main one being the fact that A Court Of Frost And Starlight (ACOFAS) has just released, which I preordered last week. It’ll hopefully get here before the weekend...PLEASE...and ACOWAR also goes towards several readathons that I’m taking part in at the moment as well.
* The Fae Readathon hosted by a Facebook friend where you have prompts to read Fae related books. I read ACOWAR for the book that came out before 2018 challenge - https://www.facebook.com/events/174558623203831/

Beautiful Illusion by Christie Nelson Review

Hey ForeverBookers, 

Last night I finished “Beautiful Illusion” by Christie Nelson and I enjoyed it! I’ve been busy over the past couple of weeks so it’s taken me longer to read this than I would have liked. Therefore, this review will be quite brief.  
3 Stars!
I requested “Beautiful Illusion” through NetGalley so thanks to them for allowing me to read it!

There’s talk of drugs as well as an unhealthy relationship in “Beautiful Illusion” so if you’re sensitive to either of those things, maybe don’t read it.  
“Beautiful Illusion” tells the story of a girl called Lily who’s writing an article for a new build called Treasure Island in San Francisco Bay. The novel is set in the 1930’s as it charts the build of The Golden Gate Bridge partly, too. “You’re a regular Joe, she said” demonstrates this as the language isn’t what we’d say today. 
She meets characters who she becomes friends with as well as characters that she instantly dislikes. Woodrow is a character she likes, as is Tokido. Woodrow…

The Heart Between Us by Lindsay Harrel Review

Hi ForeverBookers, 
It’s really hot where I am at the moment! 
Anyway, I’ve just finished “The Heart Between Us” by Lindsay Harrel and it was good! It took me a little time (just over a week) to get through it, mainly because the book felt really segmented. 
NetGalley granted my access to “The Heart Between Us” so it’s thanks to them that I was able to read and review it.
3.5 Stars (3 Stars on goodreads)! 
It’s told in third person about a set of female twins, Megan and Crystal. Megan has been sick since childhood with a heart condition. The events of the novel take place when the girls are in their early thirties. Megan recently had a heart transplant, while Crystal has been becoming an architect. Megan lives in Minnesota while Crystal lives in New York at the beginning of The Heart Between Us. They haven’t seen each other in years. 
This novel is really about taking chances and not being afraid to be brave. The main part of The Heart Between Us is Megan wanting to travel the world for a g…
