THE BOOK I COMMITTED TO READ:

Immortal

by Gillian Shields
in my pile since March 2011

I just finished reading Immortal just in time for this Saturday's TBRIC. I give it three out of five apples but I won't be giving a lengthy review. It was quite good but I cringed at the insta-love. I'm all for instant connection and all but to declare love after just how many days? Yet, I was giddy with what Sebastian's eventual actions - throwing away possible immortality for the safety of the girl.


THE BOOK I COMMIT TO READ THIS WEEK:  

Tempest Rising 

by Tracy Deebs
in my pile since June 2011

Synopsis from Goodreads:



Tempest Maguire wants nothing more than to surf the killer waves near her California home; continue her steady relationship with her boyfriend, Mark; and take care of her brothers and surfer dad. But Tempest is half mermaid, and as her seventeenth birthday approaches, she will have to decide whether to remain on land or give herself to the ocean like her mother. The pull of the water becomes as insistent as her attraction to Kai, a gorgeous surfer whose uncanny abilities hint at an otherworldly identity as well. And when Tempest does finally give in to the water's temptation and enters a fantastical underwater world, she finds that a larger destiny awaits her-and that the entire ocean's future hangs in the balance. 


It has been long since I've read anything from my 'sea' folder' so this is my pick for this week's TBRIC: mermaids! You know, the synopsis reminds of the movie Barbie: A Mermaid's Tale. Yes. I still watch Barbie movies.

  1. I thought Immortal was interesting in a dark gothic kind of way. Sebastian isn't super squeaky clean, he's tortured and has a troubled past. He's kind of disturbing actually.

    Good luck this week! I hope you enjoy Tempest Rising! :)

    1. Yes, I didn't like him that much and I really didn't believe all those proclamations of love when they were starting out. But his actions at the end partially offset his actions although I think he's not completely reformed. I guess I'll read the second book to find out.
