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 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 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.

DNF at 14%

I've had this book on hiatus since January 2017 and have not thought about it once since then unfortunately. I do remember a little of what happened in the section that I did read, but I'm not curious about where the story is going at all. Nothing really grabbed me and I've decided to just put it away for good.

I did receive a copy of this book from Jellybooks in exchange for my participation in their test reading campaign, but this does not affect my opinion of this book.

Books: My Thoughts on The Breakdown

My rating: 1 of 5 stars

DNF at page 117.

I've had such trouble getting into this book. I believe it is entirely due to the question this story is based on. By the point of the story when I put the book down, I was pretty sure how this story was going to end up. I had not been motivated to pick it up since then unfortunately. I did read the last chapter today and found out that I had been right about my guess as to how this was all going to end up.

I was sent a copy of this book by the publisher for review and this does not have any impact on my feelings regarding this book. I did like Behind Closed Doors so I will probably try another book from this author in the future.

Books: My Thoughts on Legacy of Kings (Blood of Gods and Royals #1)

Legacy of Kings by Eleanor Herman
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

A big thank you to my friend for gifting this to me for my birthday! You know who you are ^-^

An enjoyable read. I always have a bit of a problem when there are multiple POVs, so I think that is probably why I can't give this a higher rating. It also took me a while to become absorbed in the story and be familiar with our cast of characters, but once I was familiar it was a much more enjoyable journey for me.

The audiobook helped a bit too as the presentation helps me to know which POV we're in at any moment in the story. I will be continuing with this series and look forward to the next installment.
