Miss Treadway, And The Field Of Stars by Miranda Emmerson Review

Hi ForeverBookers, 

I've just finished Miss Treadway, And The Field Of Stars and it was much better than I was expecting. I read this as a NetGalley arc so thank you to NetGalley for allowing me access. The actual book isn't released until 28th February 2017! (I'm writing this review in November of 2016). 
4 Stars!
NOTE: this is an ADULT book as characters are found in compromising positions and the language used isn't for under 16s, I'd say.
We follow a number of characters as they try to piece together the disappearance of another character. This is another book based in and around England.

Yolande Green is a well known actress at the beginning of the book. She's seen with Anna Treadway, the girl the title names in the first chapter as she comes of stage one night. After chapter one though the book becomes a mystery novel, as we, the readers don't know what's happened to Yolande Green either. I liked the continuing mystery factor of …

A Year And A Day by Isabelle Broom Review

Hi ForeverBookers, 
I've just finished one of the most enchanting, magical but real stories I've ever read! 
NOTE: this book involves talk of cancer and suicide so if you're uncomfortable with either of those topics, maybe don't read it. Also sex is mentioned a couple of times throughout the novel.
In this contemporary novel, we follow three couples as they go to Prague. Each couple has something to work through while in Prague. They all involve love in some way so this book was perfect for me. The title of this book all means something different to each character as well. 
4.5 Stars (5 on Goodreads)!
Slight spoilers below...
The first couple we follow is Megan and Ollie, two young friends. They've come to Prague to be inspired. Megan for her photography work and Ollie for his job as a primary school teacher teacher. At first they're no more than good friends but this changes while they're in Prague. Are they together come the end of the book? 
The second …

All I Ever Wanted by Lucy Dillon Review.

Hi ForeverBookers, I'm sorry I haven't been here in a while...I was in a bit of a reading slump :(. Anyway, for the past week or so I've been reading All I Ever Wanted by Lucy Dillon, which I got as an E-arc through NetGalley. This book releases in December 1st, 2016. This is an ADULT book because it has some bad language towards the end. 
Half of the story is basically the story of a family that go through trials and tribulations to work out how to be happy. The other half is about a woman, who's just lost her husband (not a spoiler as it happens in the first couple of chapters) learning to see the world as an open place, where anything can happen.

We first see the family that go through a lot, together in London. It's not often that I've found a contemporary novel set in England, where I live. It was nice to see names of places that I recognise. There are the parents and two children, a boy and a girl in this story. They are playing a wish…
