Daring You To Read (19)......Forgive My FIns

Daring You To Read is a brand new meme by Tynga's Reviews. Is where you choose a book you’ve read, loved and would dare your readers to read! The book you choose must be an older release (at least 6 months ago), because let’s be honest, we’re all quite aware of the latest releases

Forgive My Fins (Fins #1) by Tera Lnn Child
Publication Date: May 19th 2010
Genre: YA Fantasy
Pages: 293


Lily Sanderson has a secret, and it’s not that she has a huge crush on gorgeous swimming god Brody Bennett, who makes her heart beat flipper-fast. Unrequited love is hard enough when you’re a normal teenage girl, but when you’re half human, half mermaid like Lily, there’s no such thing as a simple crush.

Lily’s mermaid identity is a secret that can’t get out, since she’s not just any mermaid – she’s a Thalassinian princess. When Lily found out three years ago that her mother was actually a human, she finally realized why she didn’t feel quite at home in Thalassinia, and she’s been living on land and going to Seaview high school ever since, hoping to find where she truly belongs. Sure, land has its problems – like her obnoxious, biker boy neighbor Quince Fletcher – but it has that one major perk – Brody. The problem is, mermaids aren’t really the casual dating type – when they “bond,” it’s for life.

When Lily’s attempt to win Brody’s love leads to a tsunami-sized case of mistaken identity, she is in for a tidal wave of relationship drama, and she finds out, quick as a tailfin flick, that happily-ever-after never sails quite as smoothly as you planned.

This was one refreshing read. I loved it to the ends of the world. Omg, amazing. Ms. Childs created my fantasy world. It's always been a dream of mine to become a real life mermaid and she made it happen.

I was sucked in by the world building and the sweet characters she created for all of us to fall in love with and fall I did. Lily with her silly but enticing fishy terminology and Brody with his sweet personality, a guy you just hope that'll sweep you off your own feet one day.

Plus, the fun little extras you get in the back of the book. Even get a recipe for Mermaid Cupcakes. They were fun to make. :)

If you just love mermaids or fantasy with sweet romances then this is a must read.

Daring is the game, I've dared you now it's your time to dare me.

Leave a comment-no matter if you take place in this meme or not- I would love to hear what you have to say! :) 

Happy Reading Everybody!
