Mermaids on Memorial Day

Tangled Tides (Sea Monster Memoirs #1)- Karen Amanda Hooper

Tangled Tides (The Sea Monster Memoirs, #1) 

What’s a better read than a mermaid story for Memorial Day? Tangled Tides seemed like a good choice, but I’m not going to lie—-Tangled Tides was just okay for me. The first few pages I had no idea if it was a boy or a girl protagonist. Then Yara is like “hey let’s just run off with this stranger.” Did someone not teach her stranger danger? Cause for real, that’s just dumb.  After those initial problems, Tangled Tides rallied a bit with interesting world creation and mythology. As the story continued the entangled relationships seemed a bit confused for me. In the end, I was kind of just “meh” about it.  If you’re looking for a quick mermaid read for the beach then this hits the mark, just don’t expect much more than that.

Overall: B

Tangled Tides is out now and free for Amazon Prime users right now ($4.99 for other Amazon users).  Check it out here.
