Books: My Thoughts on The 7th Victim (Karen Vail #1)

The 7th Victim The 7th Victim by Alan Jacobson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Interesting, very interesting. I read this for #MarchMysteryMadness

I've had this book on Kindle for a very long time. I picked it up free but never read it, so March Mystery Madness was the perfect time to dust it off. There were a couple twists in this book that I didn't see coming and the twist at the end was super surprising. You learn a lot about Karen throughout this book too.

This book does contain more gruesome crime scenes and violence than I'm used to reading, but it's not unfamiliar for me as I do watch shows like Criminal Minds which contain similar themes. I listened to a majority of this on audiobook and thought the narrator did a good job. I'll definitely be checking out other books in this series in the future.

Books: Super Late May Wrap Up | 2017

Ok, I know this is super late, but I figured I should share this anyway. This was the last video I filmed before I hit The Reading Slump of 2017 and stopped filming altogether!

Books: My Thoughts on Ninth Key (Mediator #2)

Ninth Key Ninth Key by Meg Cabot
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

It's been a while since I read a book this fast. This one takes place about a week after the incidents of the first book in this series. Though it's been a while since I read the previous book, it wasn't hard to get back into this series at all. Really enjoyed it and highly recommend if you like Young Adult Paranormal Mysteries.

Books: My Thoughts on The Brightest Embers (Broken Destiny #3)

The Brightest Embers The Brightest Embers by Jeaniene Frost
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Good conclusion to this trilogy. As always with this author's books, I had no trouble getting into it and it kept my interest. Though this story had lots of predictability to it, I still enjoyed it. The ending was definitely abrupt and I think there could've been more exploration into a particular situation. Maybe that will come in a subsequent novella, but the story had enough finality to me that I am satisfied with the end if there isn't more to the story in the future.
