      All in all, I liked this book, it was fresh, cute and a fast read, and that s what I needed because I ve been reading heartbreaking, sad books That said it was not what I expected In good ways and in bad ways Let s start with something I m not sure if I liked or not, but it sure had me intrigued The Ocean.I really liked Her sometimes, but there were other times that She just confused me I mean, I liked the idea, I think that She was the strongest character of the book, and it s the first time I [...]

      The Siren was a SNOOZEFEST.I m so disappointed in this book I was such a huge fan of The Selection series so I expected to really like The Siren but honestly, everything was just super dull.The characters were boring The only thing I enjoyed about the siren sisters was their dedication and loyalty to one another The concept behind the Sirens and the Ocean was interesting but I didn t really love it And on top of that, the romance was 100 percent insta love Their feelings developed too fast after [...]

      Please do yourself 2 favors 1 Do not avoid this book simply because you hated Cass s The Selection series The two are nothing, nothing, nothing alike The characters, the world, the writing tone are all so very different Sure, you may still dislike this one for any number of reasons, but if you re interested in the premise, don t judge it based on a totally separate book series.2 Do not avoid this book simply because mushy romances aren t your thing Yes, there is a romance, and that s very much a [...]

      The Siren es una novela r pida y sencilla, con un punto de partida interesante y una historia de amor algo t pica.La primera novela que leo de Kiera Cass fuera del mundo de La Selecci n de hecho, es la nica que tiene , y es tambi n la primera novela que ella escribi Pese a haber sido revisada y editada, creo que se nota la mejora que ha tenido en el resto de sus trabajos Vamos, que s , se nota que le faltaba poner un poco en orden las ideas y dotarlas de detalles.La novela es en s entretenida la [...]

      Sometimes you have to give the hurt a noise and let it out If you don t, it fills you up with its emptiness I hate to say it, but I don t think I would read another novel by Kiera Cass If she did write something else, I don t think I would bother reading it or trying at least Even if it would be something totally different than her Selection series, I don t think I would give it a shot They re cute and small and I really like how Kiera makes it enjoyable at times, but other than that, I don t en [...]

    8. Sara on said:

      This book was laaaaaaame I listened to it on audio and considered DNF ing at least 10 times Major instalove Flat writing Flat characters The resolution was way too convenient I did like the concept of the siren world and the Ocean being personified I think it would ve been better if someone else wrote this book I think I might be done with Kiera Cass.

      WrensReads Review I don t know how to review this book It wasn t the best thing I have ever read, but with my emotions all mixed up and my health not being as it should be right now, this book straight up made me cry for what I yearn for love.Ever since I was little, I have fallen in love with the ideas of mermaids or sirens, as some have called them They are beautiful and mythical and quite honestly the root of my obsession of fantasy novels and movies Anyone who knows me knows that, even thoug [...]

      Reviewed by Samantha Clanton, aka Harlequin Twilight for TeensReadTooAfter reading this story, it is taking everything in me to not totally gush it is that good THE SIREN is the story of Kahlen, mostly, along with her sisters and the Ocean A siren is a singer, a singer of the Ocean In order to maintain herself, the Ocean must feed sirens help her to do that.Kahlen and her sisters, Marilyn and Aisling, begin the story and you find out quite a lot of how sirens and their lives work They are beauti [...]

      This is a retelling of the classic fairy tale, The Little Mermaid, and due to being fascinated and familiar with both the story and mermaid lore in general, this was a highly anticipated release for me And, as you can probably guess from my rating, I was left a little disappointed.I felt the story opened strongly The reader is thrust straight into the heart of the action with no preamble and we oversee the death of the main protagonist s parents and her subsequent rebirth in mermaid form, all wi [...]

      I hate to say this but even though the book wasn t really bad, it wasn t anything much else either In other words, it was simply meh Actually in retrospect, it was kind of bad Just kind of I couldn t wait to finish it not because it s compelling or anything I just wanted to be over with it which I wasn t expecting to be feeling because despite the Selection Series being a cheesy fairytale dystopia, I found the writing gripping and it s why I liked it I m sad to say that that was a missing ingred [...]

      Will it be good Will it be terrible Who knows Reading Cass s books is a little like playing Russian Roulette It might blow your mind, it might not.

    16. Lara on said:

      She told me to live I didn t know how to tell Her that simply being alive was not enough to be called living Mixed feelings about this one This book obviously isn t as good as The Selection But it had huge potential in it and I wish Kiera Cass used it I liked the main idea of the book however it would be much better if it was longer, maybe a duology There are so many questions that re unanswered in the book First of, why ocean eats humans or why does she needs sinkings The ocean was pretty weir [...]

    17. Renata on said:

      Kiera Cass has that style to write books which are kind of cute and really easy to get into them but at some points everything turns out so predictive and nothing surprised me and specially in this book In The Selection books I kind of read all of them really fast and I enjoyed them a lot, but The Siren I had to force myself a little bit to keep reading it and the plot was kind of cheesy If there s something that I really liked was the relationship between the sisters butdly that s all I enjoyed [...]

      I heard the door to the spare room creak and pretended to be asleep, but hoping I could pull off looking like a normal person for just a few hours.I felt a warm hand touch my forehead And then my cheek I held my act steady though Akinli s touch made me feel than awake Where in the world did you come from, you beautiful, silent girl he whispered After along moment, I heard him slowly creep out of the room, quietly closing the door behind him.Written by the infamous author of The Selection serie [...]

      A pesar del orden de publicaci n, The Siren fue el primer libro que escribi Kiera Cass y eso se nota much simo en el estilo, la manera de escribir y el c mo nos cuenta la autora la historia Pero bueno, antes de decirles de qu va The Siren, quiero contarles que la historia me sorprendi much simo La aproximaci n de Kiera Cass a la figura mitol gica de la sirena me dej muy intrigada, pues no era para nada lo que me esperaba Vamos, que supon a que iba a ser algo muy tipo La Sirenita de Disney con av [...]

      There s always room for love Even if it s as small as a crack in the door Oh, The Siren you had so much promise Why didn t you live up to all your potential I have such mixed emotions about The Siren I wanted to love this such much I saw the beautiful hardcover book in the store and read the summary and I was instantly sold It s my first book from Kiera Cass, so I won t be drawing any comparisons between this and The Selection series This is also my first book about sirens and it just fell reall [...]

    22. Kezia Miller on said:

      This book was nothing like The Selection series and I really enjoyed that I really enjoyed how modern this book was because stories like this that I read are usually set in the past or in a different universe that I could never picture on Earth It was an easy read and just a cute romance This was the definitely the kind of book I needed It wasn t super complex like some books I ve read that make your brain hurt but included some things that were very captivating and enjoyable to read I really li [...]

      Release the gowns.The name Kiera Cass is synonymous with young adult, instant love, cliche storylines and of course ballgowns Her Selection series covers are absolutely stunning and considering the predicament her protagonist America finds herself in, are well suited to the storyline and a great representation Her novels are perfect for early teen readers who love a fairytale romance The Siren on the other hand managed to weave underwater ballgowns into the storyline and although I enjoyed it sp [...]

    24. Erica on said:

      Wow, Kiera Cass has such talent She is definately an author to watch The Siren covers decades all in 276 pages, and you never once find yourself bored, only overcome with a need to know what happens next You grow with the characters and experience their life The Siren had me crying at numerous points and I m by no means a big crier in books It wasn t just sad parts that had me crying either, I was tearing up over some of the happiest parts of the book Parts of The Siren were so heartbreaking, bu [...]

      I cannot express how much I loved this book Sweet Heartwarming THE SIREN is a story about many different kinds of love I cried happy and sad tears Once again, Kiera Cass delivered a tale that kept me reading late into the night I can t explain it Her books are sirens of their own.

      DNF at page 122.I know I have been DNFing like crazy, but when the main character says she has fallen in love with a boy when she has spent no than real time 2 hours with him, I no longer take the book seriously It for real made me roll my eyes.
