Being sick has it's advantages.
It makes sure you feel like doing very little, except reading.
Useful when you have library books to finish!

I really enjoyed this book. It followed some of the older mermaid myths, and then added some of it's own. ;-)

This book was good, but it was also pretty confusing. There were some things that I think the characters should have figured out sooner, but I was totally clueless as to how the story might end. Other than that, I don't really have too much to say about this book. It wasn't particularly fascinating for me, but if you like mermaid/siren stories, you might like this one. Overall, I probably could have lived without reading this book though.

I really enjoyed this book. It took such interesting twist and turns,I think the topic can reach a variety of ages and genre lovers. The only thing that I had a problem was that some details were never explained so at the end of the book you are trying to make a connection. But I am excited to read Undercurrent :)

I absolutely loved this, and to be honest, the way it ended was so unexpected and was the one ending that never came to my mind, and that itself says how great and breath taking this book was

I really enjoyed this book. I really wish it ended a bit differently and she explained the whole thing about the picture more, but overall i liked it. I'm really excited for the sequel as well :)

This book was not at all what I had expected. Instead of being immensely boring and dreading to force myself into finishing it, I was hooked from the beginning. I guess I was not too intrigued by the cover or the description, which just goes to show you that you need to actually pick up a book and read it cover to cover in order to judge it fairly.
I loved the main character because she had so much substance, flaws, as well as anxieties that i could relate to. This book was not focused entirely on romance between two characters, which is what made this book very distinguishable from others. I loved the siren aspect to it; very original and intriguing. This book was great, it feels like there is another, or at least there should be one. :)

Vanessa, 17, wishes that she was more like her confident older sister Justine and was less afraid of the dark and the ocean at her family's Maine summerhouse. Then, shockingly, Justine is found dead on the shore, and although the death is termed accidental, Vanessa decides to travel from their family home in Boston to Maine to search for answers. There, she learns that Caleb, Justine's regular summer boyfriend, is missing, and of the mysterious, sea-related deaths of local men—each, eerily, found smiling. Together with Simon, Caleb's brother, Vanessa begins to unfold intertwined mysteries and searches for the courage to thwart a sinister, potentially deadly plan.
