Washing Ashore, by Ginna Moran

And here I am, finishing Ginna Moran’s Spark of Life series. Before I start this review, here’s a reminder: Though I’m spoiler-free for the book I’m reviewing, I cannot (and will not) guarantee that for previous parts in a series. In the first book, Diving Under, narrator Ava Adair was accidentally knocked overboard into the […]

Deception (Son of a Mermaid Book Three), by Katie O’Sullivan

Back when I first started reviewing books on my blog, I reviewed the first two books in Katie O’Sullivan’s Son of a Mermaid series. I’ve searched for other YA mermaid series to see the similarities and differences from my own. Diving into very different mermaid worlds and mythologies has been an interesting experience, especially when […]

Treading Water, by Ginna Moran

I had the pleasure of diving into Diving Under, the first part of Ginna Moran’s Spark of Life series, back in November. It tells the story of Ava Adair, recently graduated from high school, whose life changes when she’s accidentally knocked overboard into the ocean and saved by a hunky and sweet merman named Carter. […]

Diving Under, by Ginna Moran

I found another YA mermaid series! If you follow my reviews, you know that as an author of a YA mermaid series, I’m always looking for such books. I mean, those authors and I are inspired by the same folklore and mythology, yet we create vastly different worlds and circumstances. I enjoy the stories even […]

Submerge, by Tobie Easton

After finishing Tobie Easton’s incredible debut Emerge, which I loved and placed at #5 in my favorite books read last year, I couldn’t wait for the sequel. The story was simply lots of fun, and the plot and conflict were wrapped up so nicely, that I wasn’t sure what a sequel could even look like. […]

Ocean So Wide, by Nichole Giles

Almost two years ago, I came across Nichole Giles’s book Water So Deep, the first book in this series. As a fan of mermaids, I was drawn to the premise of the book, which told of Emma Harris, a girl who was slowly becoming a mermaid. I gave the book three stars because it dragged […]

Mermaid Month Wrap-Up

I named July 2016 MERMAID MONTH here at the Stuff to celebrate the release of Skipping the Scales, which I officially announced on the 14th. Click on the cover for it—or for first part Flipping the Scales—to be taken to their Amazon purchase pages.       But what other mermaid-ness was there this month? […]

The Mermaid’s Sister, by Carrie Anne Noble

Before MERMAID MONTH here at the Stuff draws to a close, I’ve got another mermaid-themed book to review. This book was the 2014 winner of Amazon’s breakthrough novel competition in the young adult category, and as a debut YA fairy tale, I can see why. There’s much to appreciate about the crafting of this story, particularly […]

How to be a Mermaid, by Erin Hayes

MERMAID MONTH continues here at the Stuff, and now that my book is all edited/revised and out there in the world, I get to enjoy reading books that aren’t my own. Yay! This one has been on my Kindle since it came out last summer as part of the Falling in Deep collection of novellas. […]
