Then Came You (Compass Cove #1) by Jeannie Moon Review

Hi ForeverBookers! How are you all doing today?
I've just finished Then Came You by Jeannie Moon, which is a really heartwarming contemporary story. It's told in 3rd person, which I'm not normally a big fan of, but I thought it worked well here. The story was so compelling to read that I didn't really care what perspective it was told in. 
Then Came You will only be in ebook form. It releases on 26th September 2017 though, so you don't have long to wait. I requested it through NetGalley so thank you to them for giving me the chance to read and review it. 
Then Came You does have sex scenes as well as a bullying parental figure so I'd say it was 17/18+ readers. 
5 Stars...

Then Came You tells the story of Mia, a woman in her late 20's who has an unstable life at the beginning of the novel. She's been looking after her nephew, Ben for years after her sister, his mother committed suicide. She doesn't get along with her own mother and she lost her father too…

The Scandal by Fredrik Backman Review

Hi ForeverBookers, 

I'm sorry that I haven't posted in a while. I've finished The Scandal and it was good! It took me a while to read because it's over 400 pages and it took a while for me to write this review too.

NetGalley provided me with an e-arc of The Scandal so thanks to them for letting me read it. 
3 Stars!
The Scandal takes place in Beartown, which is in Scandinavia, in this novel. 
"Beartown isn't close to anything". This means that without hockey, the main thing that holds this community together, the people of Beartown wouldn't have anything. It's their life source. 
"Want to bet?" Kevin grins. "100 kronor" Lyt nods. They shake on it"
They use the kronor as their currency. This is how we know the novel takes place in Scandinavia.
It's a very sports dominated book so if that isn't your type of book, maybe don't pick this up. There is emotional stuff as well though, although it's not a romance at all! 
NOTE…

The Futures by Anna Pitoniak Review

Hey ForeverBookers, 
Yesterday, I finished a contemporary book called The Futures by Anna Pitoniak and it was great! This would have been what I read for Read A Hyped Book for the booktubathon, as I've heard a few Booktubers hype it up.
It's now available to buy/download too. I read the arc from NetGalley so thanks to them for giving me access.
It's told in duel POV format, where we see how the main events of the book affect both our main characters, Evan and Julia. The perspectives were quite easy to tell apart as each chapter is titled with the name of the character it's coming from. Also it switched every chapter as well as the personalities differing throughout. I normally don't like it when a female author writes a male POV or vice versa because I don't think they know what men feel, just as I don't think men know what women feel. I, however thought that Pitoniak did a good job in this case as the story deals more with emotion than sex, I guess. The Futur…
