5 out of 5 stars

I am first going to say that I have been search for a mermaid book that I liked as much as Promised and the whole Syrenka series by Amber Garr and I have found it with Susan Fodor's amazing story Silver Tides! I loved the fact that this book was fun, heartwarming, realistic, and made me laugh out loud!

Mya feels invisible, she doesn't think she is pretty and she thinks she is a little overweight compared to all the other skinny popular girls. Mya's best friend is Jaimie who is pr

4.5 stars.

I finally started diving into other mermaid tales recently, and I wasn’t disappointed with Silver Tides. Right away I felt compassion for Mya as she struggled to fit in and right away I hated all of the “mean girls”. The high school drama, cliques, bullying…yuck. But, it happens and I think Susan did a good job of creating that tension and making it more believable as to why Mya would be so drawn to an unconscious boy that washed up on the beach. And speaking of Daniel…right away you g

when I first started this book I was iffy about it. I wanted to put it down it seemed like it was going to be very slow and not my type of book.but than when she started visiting John/Daniel my heart felt for her, especially since Miranda seemed to want what wasn't hers, a lot of people can relate to that I know I can.I loved the book, and I can't wait for the next book. ...more

This was a cute story. It was also my 1st mermaid book. I learned a lot. I also enjoyed reading about the concept of amnesia and deja vu. It reminded me of the heroine in my companion novel. This story has a great beginning and ending. I like the twist at the end, and wonder what's going to happen in bk 2. ...more

Silver Tides is a young adult urban fantasy — it will come as no surprise to anyone who looks at the cover for more than a milisecond that the urban fantasy element is mermaid-related. (And just stop and look at that cover for a second. Wow.) But Fodor has put a great deal of thought into the way her mythological world works, so it’s more complicated than that. (I won’t go into it though, because spoilers.)

I had mixed feelings about this book. A lot of them come from the fact that Fodor drew the

A girl from Australia. A guy with amnesia. Twilight references and a royal lineage. It kind of sounds like Melanie's Evanescent Journey until the guy returns to the sea. This is the first book I've ever read where mythical sea creatures were the main characters and I learned a lot I didn't know.

Mya is a high school senior trying to make it through to graduation. When she finds a drowning boy in the bay and administers CPR, her peaceful life is upended. When he awakes, the boy has no memory. He i

Mya gets a lot more than she fishes for when she pulls a gorgeous boy out of the water and saves his life. As a next to invisible and socially awkward teenager, her life flips over entirely when Daniel sets the majority of his focus on her, while trying to recover from his amnesia.

Mya and Daniel were really cute together, as well as an effective team, rising to meet all of the challenges put before them. Mya was loyal, smart and open-minded, while Daniel was a supportive and strengthening match

This one was definitely a little younger than what I expected. The writing seems firmly planted in middle grade, but the content could easily fit into the upper YA category, which kept it from really impressing me because I couldn't get over the clashing styles.
The story seems to drag a lot too, and I cared way more about the supernatural stuff than the cliche, but honestly depicted, bullying subplot, which becomes the plot for a good fifty to a hundred pages.
That being said, I like the mytholog

I was up and down with this one! Started out good, then a little boring near the middle (lots of unnecessary high school drama), picked up again toward the end, but the ending itself was kind of blah for me. Combine that with a fair amount of spelling/grammatical errors and I've got a book I can't give more than a 3 star to. I did enjoy certain parts and there was some decent writing but overall it wasn't as good as I'd hoped. ...more

From the very beginning the author thrusts you into this story already in process. Things get a little bizarre, and then they get a lot bizarre but Susan has done a wonderful job creating a relatable character to anyone that has ever felt less than adequate and a story that keeps you on the edge of your seat. I would highly recommend this read for fantasy and romance lovers. I can't wait to read the sequel! ...more

I'm finished with Silver Tides: Wow this book hooked me straight away. I must admit that I got a surprise a third of the way through when things started to fall into place. A modern day fable which is full of all the ways I would would like us all to embrace a great read for the young to learn from & for the more mature to be reminded of the values we would like to achieve ...more

I'm kinda mixed with liking this book, well, because it reminded me a bit of Twilight, but I guess there were a lot of things I truly liked with the story may be the overflow of cuteness.

Yeah. I'm still woozy of this one...
