15 posts | 7 read | 3 to read
Anger. Betrayal. Exile.Isla always knew she would be queen. One day. But after the death of her mother, matriarch of the Southern Pacific merfolk kingdom, that day grew much closer than she was prepared for. Worse, to become a mermaid queen, she must marry. It is the only way to protect her kingdom.Forcibly betrothed to her childhood friend and father's fiercest warrior, Isla is desperate for an escape--no matter the cost. But until she marries, her father is filled with a power his body cannot handle, and his control is steadily slipping.After an explosive fight with her father, Isla flees to the surface, only to find herself in the middle of a violent storm with two choices: swim to safety or save the human man she sees drowning in the tumultuous waves.Her decision will change her life, as well as her kingdom, forever.A story inspired by "The Little Mermaid" like you've never seen before.

A friend of mine recommended this book. It's inspired by The Little Mermaid. I loved it! The plot twist that popped up was awesome. I totally didn't expect it! Definitely give this a try! 😃

I finally got to read this today. I know I cut it short, but grad. school is done for the semester! So more free time reading!

Mixed feelings about it, but excited to talk about the book.

I'd probably give it a 6/10. The protagonist mainly got on my nerves and I honestly think if you are going to write a story with multiple POVs you should do so from the start -- not introduce it halfway through the book. On the plus side, the lore/magic tied to the mermaids was a neat concept and the mermaid society is mostly ruled by women so that was cool. #WomenReading

Well, I was on track to finish this for #womenreading today. I said WAS. My #LazyCoworker lay beside me in the bed earlier for a nap, threw his head back and headbutted me right over my eye. Now I think I'll just have a migraine all day. I really need to fire this guy

One down! Thanks for the read @SumisBooks ! I enjoyed this more as it went on — I struggled to get into it at first because I found Isla pretty irritating. But her growth as a character made her much more endearing as time went on.🧜🏻‍♀️🥰 Can‘t wait to chat about it with you all! #WomenReading

So I would like to go ahead and change my book selection since we are doing ebooks this round. I would like to choose this book but it is only free on eBook until the 25th of March. So we need to grab it up quickly.
Should we start with this one first and then go around in the circle the way it is to read everyone's book each month?

Okay here are my finals stats for our #24B4Monday readathon! I did well over my expectations and I am so very very proud of myself!!! 🎉🎉🎉
I hope you all had fun reading with us! And don't forget we'll see you next month for the last weekend of the month! 😘

And a big thank you to my wonderful co-hosts 👏👏👏
@Andrew65 @jb72 😘🤗😘🤗

julesG 👏👏👏👏👏 Now that was a very successful reading weekend for you! 4y
jb72 Awesome job! 🎈🎉🎊 4y

Andrew65 You should be beyond proud of yourself, this is a totally phenomenal total. 👏👏👏🙌🙌🍾🥂🎊🥳🎉🏆😍 4y
Megabooks Amazing!! 🥳🥳👏🏻👏🏻👍🏻👍🏻📚📚🎉🎉🍾🍾😁💜 4y
Eggbeater Impressive job!!!🎉😙 4y
BeansPage @julesG @jb72 @JazzFeathers @Andrew65 @Megabooks @Eggbeater thank you so much my friends. Your encouragement means so much to me ❤️🤗❤️ I really think I outdid myself this time. Now next time if I want to hit a higher goal I think I'm screwed 😂😂😂 4y
Andrew65 @TheReadingMermaid What about 31 hours and 14 minutes. 😂 That‘s at least 30 seconds more. A lot depends on the timing of the Readathon, how you are feeling (not just you, but any of us), tiredness levels and what else is going on. July, August, December, possibly March (depending when Easter is) will always be my best Readathons. (edited) 4y
Andrew65 And possibly October‘s. All linked to school holidays. 4y
Andrew65 Can I just check are we doing the August Readathon on 23 - 25 August? 4y
BeansPage @Andrew65 this is so true and you are so very right. August and September will probably be good months for me as well. But once we had October the busy season starts up again (for me anyway). 4y
BeansPage @Andrew65 yes it will be the 23rd through the 25th. I would have liked to do it on the very last weekend but unfortunately there's no Sunday. Sunday starts the next month. 4y
Andrew65 @TheReadingMermaid once you get to November tiredness as the school year progresses starts to hit me more. 4y
Andrew65 @TheReadingMermaid That‘s actually better for me as we will be driving most of Saturday night - Sunday night on 31st / 1st (500+ mile journey in the motorhome) and getting ready for the new term that starts on 2nd around this. I will be able to contribute more around the earlier weekend. How about making it an end of Summer (Winter in Southern Hemisphere) Special Readathon and doing it over the Friday - Monday. I know the Monday is a Bank Holiday. (edited) 4y
Andrew65 🖕for us. 4y
BeansPage @Andrew65 I like the idea! I have not made up the poster yet so how exactly would it run? 4y
Andrew65 @TheReadingMermaid I would say exactly like we did for the New Year one, think that was five days. Same target 24 hours but over the four days from Friday - Monday (4 days). This would allow (Hopefully) more people to get to 24 hours and enjoy the Summer. (edited) 4y
Andrew65 Could we target some Summer Time Books, books that take place in the Summer, Beach Reads, Summer in the title, etc. (edited) 4y
BeansPage @Andrew65 and what should we call it my dear? I'm going to make up the poster right now 😁 4y
Andrew65 That‘s where my creativity ends 😂😂😂🙈 #Summer24B4Tuesday #EndofSummer24B4Tuesday??? Possibly prefer the first one. If not want to exclude the Southern Hemisphere #EndofSeason24B4Tuesday? 4y
Andrew65 Possibly prefer this one.... #AugustSpectacular24B4Tuesday (edited) 4y
BeansPage @Andrew65 or we could always keep the hashtag for less confusion #24B4Monday and just label it as a special edition "End of Summer" or "August Spectacular". What do you think? 4y
Andrew65 @TheReadingMermaid Yes good idea to keep the #24B4Monday tag. I think possibly August spectacular so people in the Southern Hemisphere (and we had a few of them this time) don‘t feel excluded. Felt this Readathon had the most involvement and some of the highest totals we have seen so good to build on that. 4y
BeansPage @Andrew65 I totally agree. And I want everybody to feel like they are included in this. So August Spectacular it is!!! 🎉 4y
BeansPage @Andrew65 and yes let's focus on summer reads this next time around. I think that's a good theme and I think it would be a lot of fun. 4y
Andrew65 @TheReadingMermaid 🎉🥳🎊🍾🥂 Roll up , roll up for the August Spectacular! 4y
Andrew65 Now need to deal with my post Readathon blues and try and do some reading. 4.40 pm and not read one page. 😳😔 4y
BeansPage @Andrew65 I don't get the luxury of having post read-a-thon blues. I have to read the rest of NOS4A2 before Wednesday. 😱😲 4y
Andrew65 @TheReadingMermaid 😂 Perhaps that‘s what I need, another target. As you will have noticed I am very target driven.good luck with the read. 4y
BeansPage @Andrew65 and good luck with yours my friend ❤️🤗❤️ 4y
Andrew65 @TheReadingMermaid Thanks 😘❤️ 4y
