Review: Daughter of the Pirate King by Tricia Levenseller

Review: Daughter of the Pirate King by Tricia Levenseller

It took me two tries to get into this book. My first attempt I DNFed it within 25-30 pages, because the way Alosa regarded men grated on my nerves. The second time, I went in with low expectations and an open mind, promising myself to take it at face value and not look at it too closely. Honestly, the first half of this book is absolutely ridiculous. It was a constant back and forth of Alosa escaping and getting thrown […]

Review: To Kill a Kingdom by Alexandra Christo

Review: To Kill a Kingdom by Alexandra Christo

A princess must have her prince. This book was so delightfully twisted! I loved the dark concept of the sirens and their tradition of taking human hearts for every year of their life – literally. Like I said, twisted! It was basically a dark retelling of The Little Mermaid – the original one, by Hans Christian Andersen. Definitely no Disney here, folks. Lira was fierce AF! She took only prince’s hearts, thus her moniker was Princes’ Bane. Bad. Ass!! She had a great […]

Review: Waterfell by Amalie Howard

Review: Waterfell by Amalie Howard

How to review this book? I had some very mixed feelings about this book. The concept was actually quite brilliant, but I found the delivery to be lacking. The premise was pretty awesome! Very cool! That is mostly where my enjoyment ended. I didn’t care about any of the characters and couldn’t connect to Narissa. Actually, I didn’t like our lead female much at all. She was kind of immature and hypocritical. There were times where I actually hated her – […]

DNF Review: September Girls by Bennett Madison

DNF Review: September Girls by Bennett Madison

Thanks to HarperTeen for providing a copy for review! Honestly, I didn’t even plan on reading this book. Just from the synopsis I wasn’t sure I’d even like it. But I got an ARC in one of my Harper packages, so I figured, why the hell not? Sigh. Now I know why. I would never call anyone’s hard work crap, because I know writing a book is hard and time-consuming and probably devours a little piece of your soul; but […]

Review: Just for Fins by Tera Lynn Childs

Review: Just for Fins by Tera Lynn Childs

Just like the first two books in the Fins series, Just for Fins was a cute and fun read! I devoured it all in almost one sitting, and in one day (that doesn’t happen very often!). Lily and Quince are back for another magical adventure, and their relationship is stronger than ever. The romance wasn’t the biggest focus in this book, but their love for each other was obvious in their actions. I love Quince! There was a lot of politics […]

Review: Monstrous Beauty by Elizabeth Fama

Review: Monstrous Beauty by Elizabeth Fama

I’ve been looking for another mermaid book that I could love as much as Forgive My Fins. Alas, this was not the one. I loved the premise, really I did. The back story was fantastic. I just didn’t care for the delivery or the prose. Or any of the characters. I was skeptical about the book as soon as I read the prologue, but I decided to give it a chance anyway. In the beginning, a mermaid is ‘in love’ with […]
