A Fin-Ish Delight

Happy Tuesday All,

A good story always makes me extremely happy. I love being taken to "another world" so to speak (whether it's actual other world, or just the author's world).

The other day I finished reading Forgive My Fins by Tera Lynn Childs. This book makes me so happy. It was a lot fun, plus there was enough romantic scenes to make a mushy romantic like me happy.

Forgive My Fins was an extremely fast read for me. I just had trouble putting it down. I started it in the afternoon and finished at 2 a.m. (there long  breaks in between when I had to do other things--like take a nap, and be with my family). Awesome book and I just can't wait until I get to read the sequel.

In Forgive My Fins, Lily (Princess Waterlily when under the sea) is half-mermaid/half-human (merman for a dad, human for a mom). For 14 years she lived in her father's kingdom, until her dad finally told her that her mother (who died when Lily was still a baby) was a human. So, Lily's made her way onto land, to live with her mother's sister, Rachel.

As heir to the throne, Lily has to choose a mate--that is, kiss a boy and that starts the bonding process. Lily has the perfect boy in mind--swimming wonder Brody Bennett. He's comfortable in the water and on land, gorgeous, and her knight-in-shining armour.

Unfortunately Lily is plagued (and thwarted in her goal) by next-door-neighbor motorcycle bad-boy, Quince Fletcher. Quince doesn't care what others think of him and thinks Lily shouldn't either. But Lily sees Quince as an annoyance, a real "blowfish".

But what happens in a dark library will change everything. Including what Lily thought she saw in those around her.

This is a fun YA Fantasy (with comedy sprinkled liberally) that I've fallen for hook, line, and sinker. I'm very excited to read the sequel and I love Tera Lynn Childs' breezy style. So get your tail fins over to your nearest bookstore and hook yourself a copy. Last one there is a guppy!

Have A Tantalizing Tuesday!

Sound adorable,Bethany! MJ Davidson said that she got wind that the next wave, (no pun intended on my part), the "new vampires" would be mermaids...guess she was right.[They were going to re-issue her "Fred" series.]I'm glad someone put something cute out, especially for for the kids, (which hers cetainly are not). I woke up this morning thinking ofthe Ghost Girl books.I guess I'm ripe for a YA series!
I'll have to look this one up.Thanks.

I also loved Goddess Boot Camp. It was cute too.

Tonette,

It's awesome! Yeah, I read somewhere that another author said something about mermaids being the next big thing--but I can't quite remember where I saw that. Thanks for dropping by :-)
