Books: My Thoughts on Hour Game (Sean King & Michelle Maxwell #2)

Hour Game by David Baldacci
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Read as part of World of Sleuths Readalongs

Another enjoyable read. Been listening to it on audio through Hoopla and I do enjoy the narrator. Lots of twists and uncovering the reason behind the murders was interesting. Each puzzle piece fit together well and I was surprised with the outcome.

The murders were much more violent in this one than the previous installment, but I think I did enjoy this mystery just a touch more than the first one. I do enjoy seeing how King and Maxwell work together as private investigators. Will definitely be continuing on to the next installment and am interested to see what mystery that one brings.

June Wrap Up Including #MangaReadathon

So delayed, I know. The heat made it impossible for me to film at home, so I had to borrow a co-worker's office. The #MangaReadathon was super fun and has made me want to read manga more often! I also kind of feel like I'm heading towards another slump, but manga is helping me to keep reading.

I also have a Facebook page now, so please feel free to follow me there as well! https://www.facebook.com/disis19 ^-^

Finished Series: My Thoughts on Fairy Tail, Volume 63

Fairy Tail 63 by Hiro Mashima
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I thoroughly enjoyed this series. I'm really going to miss these characters and the adventures that they go on. This final volume had enough closure for me that I am not left with questions and it really emphasized what I loved about this series in the first place - the friendships.

Books: My Thoughts on The Heart Forger (The Bone Witch #2)

The Heart Forger by Rin Chupeco
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I definitely enjoyed this much more than the first installment, as I had suspected I would. The pace was much better. I still do not enjoy bouncing back and forth between past and present though.

This time I listened to the audiobook and that did help me a lot, especially because the past is narrated by a female and the present is narrated by a male. It eliminated all the confusion I had while reading the text in the previous book because I knew in what time the chapter I was reading was taking place.

Looking forward to when we finally get entire story of what happened to Tea and how she got to where she is at the beginning of The Bone Witch.
