Weigh In Wednesday- Review: Tangled Tides by Karen A Hooper
And that's five in all caps because this book is AWESOME!!! It's the best book I've read this year and last. It was one hell of a page turner and I HATED when I had to put it down. I was pretty sure it'd be good when I read it, but it surpassed any feelings I could've come up with. I bow, humbly, to Karen Hooper for this book. She did an excellent job.
Yara is a seventeen, almost eighteen, year old girl who lives semi on her own and semi with her Uncle. In the midst of a Hurricane she's rescued and then thrown into a world she never imagined was real.
Here's the deal, and you all know what's up, it's time for SPOILERS. This is another one of those books that I SOOOOO don't want to spoil for anyone who hasn't read it. I should just leave it here and be done. However, I know some people like spoilers so if you MUST, then go ahead and click read more...but you really shouldn't.
UGHHHHH! You clicked it? For real?
Well, you'll be disappointed because I refuse to spoil this awesomely fantastically fabulous book for you, yep that's right, I won't do it.
I'll tell you it's a story with a take on mermaids, selkies, sirens, and gorgons. It's not like your typical fantasy, and it's just freaking awesome. And that's all I will say. Quite honestly, I feel like that's too much. It's that good.
So go grab your copy and read it!
