The Siren Book Review
The Siren - Kiera Cass

Man, I have a lot of things to say about this book. And none of them good. I'm surprised I actually finished all of it. It's that bad. I enjoyed The Selection series. But The Siren is a weird love triangle that didn't work.

 

Kahlen's parents died in a boat accident years ago. But she was miraculously saved. Of course, there is a price to pay being turned into a siren. No one can hear her talk and she'll live the same for years and years. She's okay with that until she meets McKinley, the handsome college boy she can't help but love. But the ocean keeps calling her back. 

 

This is a weird story about a love triangle between a Siren, a human and the ocean. And it is bizarre and I hated it. Kahlen is obnoxious. The relationship between her and McKinley was awkward. Most of all, there is no plot. 

 

The Siren could have been really cool if it focused on the mythological aspect of the siren. But, it is Kiera Cass. But unlike The Selection Series this one just didn't work for me. One of my least favorite books so far this year.

I was digging the Alien franchise...
Alien Omnibus 1 by Steve Perry (January 19,2016) - Steve Perry;Stephani Perry

I was even going to get this book tomorrow.  

 

There was one horrible second in Aliens where I went from wishing the alien would eat everyone to wanting her to die.   Why, movie, WHY?

 

Aaaaand now I'm done with the Alien franchise.   I'm cutting ties completely.  I still feel like crying.

Favourite book of January 2016
Faithful Place - Tana French

Well, it's a toss-up between this and another Tana French book, The Likeness.

 

Needless to say, I hope to read the next Dublin Murder Squad book, Broken Harbour, in the fairly near future.

 

I also plan to start searching the used book store to find copies of her novels--these are definitely "must own" books for me.

January has been a good month for me reading wise. I read 9 books!! (NOT including my re-reads - more on that later). Otherwise it has been pretty much like this:


Hot

 

Technically its storm season in QLD and we continuously get storm warnings, for the last two weeks they have been warning us today is the day! and yet nothing..... we might get a shower for 20 minutes, some lighting and thunder but no actual storm.... and because there hasn't been a sufficient amount of rain its HUMID AS FUCK. When I say humid I mean we can sit of our asses and be soaking wet -_- not something I particularly enjoy. Its currently midnight and still 26C with 89% Humidity (which according to my phone makes it feel more like 28C, at MIDNIGHT!!!) This time last year we had hail storms and floods << not something I'm hoping for but I just want this miserable weather to be over with, then we have these crazy people who actually enjoy this heat!!!

 


Anyways onto more important things. I read a surprisingly large amount of books this month, I can't even recall the last time i managed to fit in this many books! (looks like being jobless isn't all bad).

 

Top 3 books of January
This month I had quite a few exceptional reading experiences. Starting off with...

In the Hand of the Goddess

In the Hand of the Goddess

✮✮✮✮ 1/2
This book was fantastic and beyond anything i could have hoped for. I can't thank Shera enough more for pushing my to read this series. Tamora and this series in particular has been something I've been meaning to read for years, and I'm so glad I finally have. Alanna is such an exceptional MC, and a fantastic role model for the younger generations (though I would choose someone else *cough cough, George*  for her romantic interest instead, lol)

Updating Pritkin

Updating Pritkin

✮✮✮✮✮
This is a short story based in the Cassie Palmer world (book 5.5)
UP was an excellent example of why I love Cassie so much! Even though under the circumstances she should have been crazy with grief and fear, instead she was having the time of her life kicking demon ass while waiting for the rest of the 'badass' to catch up!! On top of that its a free short story - oh how Chance spoils us so!! gotta love it! (^_*)

Magic Breaks
✮✮✮✮✮
Have I ever told you how much I love Kate Daniels and this series!? No?
Amazing!!
To help you understand it is ^^that^^ good and made me do things like this
OMG
So good I wont even sum it up in words, just show off handy Gifs. Really what you need to do is run out and go check it out for yourself. Then we can have our minds blown together.
And this book was no less exceptional than all the rest, it has intense action/fighting scene's, some very serious life and death scene's where i constantly found myself holding my breath due to all the anticipation and drama, good laughs and some cute touching scenes. It had it all trust me.

Enjoyable Reads

Magic Rises

✮✮✮✮
Tempt The Stars
✮✮✮✮

Alanna: The First Adventure
✮✮✮ .5

Not a Drop to Drink
✮✮✮ .5

The Finisher
✮✮✮.5

Worst Book

The Pale Assassin
Why is this even a book? it was truly atrocious. It had no redeeming characters, the name makes zero sense in connection with the actual story, and the story line was just blah and don't even get me started on the writing!. It could have been so good, the bases it there!! but it just goes so wrong

DNF

What doesnt kill you

 

Nope. Just no.



Currently Reading

Obernewtyn

Fields Of Glory

Blood Sisters
The First two of which I am contemplating DNFing. -_- sigh.
Besides my current reads overall a very successful reading month. I am quite happy with it!!

Well Goodbye January Hello February and hopefully cooler weather!!

Highly anticipating Deadpool
