Reading this at the moment because Priory was starting to feel a little daunting not because it‘s a bad book but because it‘s so long so I‘m reading something shorter to get me back in the mood 😊

Well I wrote a review and then it disappeared. Hmm starting again albeit shorter. Love conquers all and souls can be joined is the message here. Short and sweet. YA romance with a fantasy twist. It lacked an emotional tug for me that I felt it was trying for though. ⭐️⭐️⭐️ #mbcreadathon #mbcfrogsread 4 hrs read

I had just finished Fahrenheit 451, so I enjoyed this book as an easy read. I see a lot of so-so reviews for this book, and I feel like people were expecting more from the author than what they got (I haven‘t ready any of her other books). Its a stand-alone fantasy book that‘s relatively short and a love plot that is a little unrealistic (guy seems too good to be true), but that‘s what I expected. I read it all in one day and was satisfied.

I thought this was a cute quick read. I liked the characters well enough. I feel like there could be more, like a bigger explanation as to why the ocean needs the girls to do what they do. How everyone pans out, like Padma... there should be more after this book.

So this isn't the best YA romance novel out there, but it was a sweet and easy read, something I needed after the crazy week I had last week.

I love the author Keira class although this book to me was one of her downfalls. The ending leaves you on a cliffhanger which will never be solved at this book is not part of a series and it just wasn‘t good in my opinion. It was such a great book and there was so many good ideas but the ending ruined the whole book

This book was okay, and was a really nice, lighthearted beach read to kick off my summer when I first read it. There were some plot weaknesses, like the insta-love (omg it was actually so unrealistic), but there were also some serious strengths. I really liked the idea that the Ocean had to eat people to survive, and the way the Cass approached the Ocean as a character with a personality. Btw this book is very different from The Selection series

It was a great, quick, and entertaining read but it was a bit basic for a siren story pretty much the same as any other Siren book I‘ve read but honestly it was fun to read!!

Kahlen begs not to die during a shipwreck, and the price is being a siren for 100 years. She the other sirens lure humans to their deaths. 80 years into her sentence, she meets a boy who sees into her soul. Akinli is a likable hero, but the bonds of sisterhood between the sirens and the Ocean‘s role as a mother to them all get most of the page time. Dragged at times, satisfying ending.

This book was absolutely AMAZING!!! Here‘s a quick summary of you haven‘t read it: A girl named Kahlen becomes a siren(mythical mermaid like creature that sings sailors to death) and faces many challenges. She can‘t talk to anyone, except for her fellow sirens. I would definitely reccomend this book for anyone who is a childhood fan of “The little mermaid.”

I really enjoyed the first half of this book, but I‘ve been busy and hadn‘t had the time to finish it. But today I read the rest in one sitting. I loved the whole book right up until the second to last chapter. The ending left me feeling kind of empty. I don‘t know, it just seemed lacking. I‘m not really sure if I‘ll read this one again.

About to die in a ship wreck, Kahlen takes up the offer to become a siren, a being who serves the Ocean by calling to people to jump off ships and die. I didn't feel that Kahlen's mixed emotions made sense. Every time it came up I got more and more irritated. I loved the Selection series so I thought I'd try this one, but was disappointed.

marineko I was pretty disappointed in this one, too :( 2y
bibliophiliac @marineko I'm sorry to hear that. I really wanted to like this book, but just couldn't! 2y
marineko @bibliophiliac me too; I think it was okay, but nowhere near as addictive as The Selection books. 2y

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️I knew that KC was a skilled storyteller - that‘s the only thing that helped me get through The Selection series. This book captured my heart from the first chapter. It is unique, incredible, and perfect. And to think that this almost went unpublished. From the characters - seeing their development, to the mythology - this book has everything that is great about the YA fantasy genre. I wish this book had a five part series.

I had high hopes for this book. It‘s a quick read and it wasn‘t what I expected. I wish the characters were more developed. I still enjoyed it... I mean who doesn‘t enjoy a book about Sirens!

i read the siren when it first released and enjoyed it, not as much as i was hoping for but it was a good and easy read and really fast paced. plus, it's about sirens so that's cool, and there's a love story and it's just overall interesting with how the story goes.

I finished the audio book of this today at work. Firstly, it was one of the best preformed audio books I've listened too. Secondly, for once I wasn't mad at the ista-love, because it made sense within the mythology of the book. A fantastical romance with a unique twist, great characters, and a touch of heart wrenching drama. If you're looking for a good beach read, check this one out (though, it might make you afraid to go in the ocean...).

Wasn't bad. I finished it pretty quickly and it was an easy/light read. I liked reading about an idea I haven't read about too much but I feel like it's missing something. I thought the romance parts were sweet, and this is really a good beach read.

🌟🌟🌟🌟

This book is captivating every thread of story is interesting, but there‘s also something about nearly every storyline that I feel could have been mproved upon. Ultimately The Siren is a very good book and I don‘t think it gets enough love there‘s so many good things in it.

I cried when Aisling had to go
I just loved this book
Its great to read between "heavier" books

Tbh i thought that her love for Akinli was transforming her back to human ahah

Question: would you prefer to be a Siren or a Mermaid?

Linear I thought it was turning her back as well. Then I thought of the love sick bit 6mo

This was my first Kiera Cass book and I don't think it was a very good introduction to her work. The cover is lovely but the story falls very flat. It was very strange - focused on the sirens relationship with the ocean who is their mother figure. Interesting concept that was't fully realized. Romance is not the main focus and is pretty bland. Full review on my blog - www.noveldescent.com - I'd skip this one 😞

cleoh I like her other series better. From what I understand, this was self published about ten (maybe???) years ago and then republished by her current house 2y
EliNeedsMoreShelves This is actually a rewrite - the original version of this novel is quite different, and (in my opinion) much better. It's nearly impossible to find, though, since the new version has come out. Definitely not her best. 2y
TbrandBeyond @EliNeedsMoreShelves That is really. Interesting. I had no idea. I will def check out The Selection series though. Looks like a lot of fun. 2y
