I guess this would be one of those times where I’ve never found a quote that struck as something I wanted to remember or I was just too busy enjoying reading that I forgot I need to look for one.
I gotten this book free after signing up in a newsletter because Partner Games was uploaded per chapter on the author’s website as it was written and I just got too excited I wanted to be notified when the new chapter is up.
So one morning, feels like a fairytale, isn’t it?, I decided to read the book wit
It isn't uncommon for the premise of books such as The Mermaid's Knight to be thought of as "Cliche", "Childish", and "Totally not worth the time". Well, ok I have to admit that: Cliche? Yes. Childish? A liiiittle bit. Totally not worth the time? Utter bullshit. Cause this book had my completely under its thrall throughout the reading process. It was, and is, THAT good. Hence, I was shellshocked.
Just a brief summary before I continue ...more
I did end up finishing this, mostly because I read book 2, The Beast' s Bride, and like it so much that inspired me to give this another shot. Still Mermaid's Knight never did really grab me, she fell in love too easily, and without her being able to speak there was no deeper relationship development bey ...more
The writing was lackluster ... I'm not dying to absorb more of Miss Myles wordplay, I've forgotten most of it already, but the characters were engaging as I read. It seemed a bit long for what it was, lots of padding here and there that I had to force myself not to flick through. Without a doubt wh ...more
“You must make the prince – well, actually he’s a baron, since princes are dreadfully difficult to come by – fall in love with you in a month’s time or we’ll be taking that trip to Heaven after all.”
The story begins with Leah Sunderland, who dies in a car accident. Luckily for her, she has a ...more
As to The Mermaids Knight, I loved the re-telling of The Little Mermaid. It's actually the first retelling of the classic that I've ever read, but I thought that it ...more
I'll throw together a full review whenever I'm not feeling so lazy ;)
"I am a fairy godmother, girl. A fairy godmother. Not a pimp."

Leah wakes up dead after she's been killed by a drunk driver and her not quite watchful fairy godmother, Muffin, is there to help her earn a second chance at life. All Leah has to do is charm an arrogant lord that thinks she's a spy for his enemy. In thirty days!
This breezy read had well drawn characters for the material and was quick and entertaining. It would be perfect to read on the beach but it does have a tendency to make you snort with laughter.
Not exactly sure what made me not like it. I think also I kept thinking 'oh god, it's going to be the Disney version'.
It wasn't. That was nice.
I'm too tired to remember anything else at the moment, but I do remember that all in all, it was enjoyable.
The cover looked so ...more
Jill Myles writes beautifully and the characters she creates don't feel like characters at all - it feels like you're reading a true story about real people. So what if one of them is a mermaid? I couldn't put this book down and Jill Myles has become an author ...more
