Finished Series: My Thoughts on Nightmare Inspector: Yumekui Kenbun, Vol. 9

Nightmare Inspector: Yumekui Kenbun, Vol. 9 Nightmare Inspector: Yumekui Kenbun, Vol. 9 by Shin Mashiba
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

After enjoying the other volumes in this series a lot, this volume and the end of this series was kind of a letdown if I have to be honest. The setup to this last volume was also very different from the previous volumes and I would've preferred if the series ended with volume 8. I really didn't feel the need for the story this conclusion brought. Maybe if I hadn't stepped away from this series for so long before I was able to obtain the last 2 volumes, I would've felt different. I'll definitely be re-reading in the future to see if my thoughts have changed when absorbing the volumes in succession.

While I didn't enjoy this one as much as the others, I do still recommend this series as it was very interesting and some of the stories had me thinking about them long after I read them.

A Magical Match A Magical Match by Juliet Blackwell
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I really enjoy this series and this installment was no exception. I was a little disappointed that a certain event hasn't taken place yet, but this installment was still very enjoyable and I look forward to reading the next one. Definitely one of my favorite series over the last few years.

Books: My Thoughts on Split Second (Sean King & Michelle Maxwell #1)

Split Second Split Second by David Baldacci
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Read as part of World of Sleuths ReadAlongs

This is the first book I've read by this author and I really enjoyed it. It had a good amount of mystery and action that kept me interested in the story. It was a good introduction to these two characters and I'm curious to see where the following books in this series goes.
