Eager reader of history, mystery, classics, biographies, steampunk, lit fic, science, scifi, and etc. My reviews are mostly positive--I rarely finish or write about books I don't enjoy. My TBR is too high for that.

Wake (Watersong, #1)

Wake (Watersong, #1) - Amanda Hocking

Great book featuring two equally interesting sisters living in what would be an idyllic small town by the ocean if it weren’t for three creepy but beautiful girls who are hanging around. In the water those creepy girls transform into what looks like mermaids but they’re actually sirens, overly attractive sea monsters who lure teenage boys to their deaths. Gemma, one of the sisters, is being pursued by the sirens, but her sister Harper is determined to keep Gemma out of trouble. Both sisters are portrayed sympathetically--a nice touch--and it’s a well balanced story with a mythological backstory, good pacing, and the early stages of young love.
