For more info about her and her books, here are some other places to check out and ways to contact her: It’s a bit darker and more sinister than the first, which I liked. Now, that wasn’t exactly true for the first half of the story since at the time, I was convinced this was just gonna be some filler book, but it e 3. Unlike Wake, Gemma stepped it up a notch. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. She hates the sirens but suffers through to keep Harper and Alex safe.

This was where the suspense really kicked in and had my heart pounding. And how did it feel to see your book in that conventional form? I totally recommend this series to all readers out there. There’s much more going on and the story really takes a step forward in its overall progress. Normally, when you skim-read, the information goes in one eye and out the other that didn’t really make sense but you get what I mean. When your life is in danger the survival instinct kicks in and people can do all kind of things in order to stay alive.

Book one, Wakewas released in August Oct 16, Jennifer rated it really liked it. And yes, there was a song, and the gorgeous sirens and a beautiful night sky but once again, I felt like there was a wall between me movif the story. Dec 25, Rachel Robins rated it it was ok.

Second half is after Gemma decides to leave, despite all the logical reasons why she should not and she can not do so. Frequent and unnecessary use of profanity, including the “F” word earning “Lullaby” a one-way ticket off my 7th grade class bookshelf.


The only character I’m somewhat interested in is Harper, her older sister. I remember really liking the siren elements about the first one, but here Dive into an excerpt from Lullaby Seeing my book in stores feels a bit weird.

I started publishing online in earlyand I went on to sell more than 1. Overall, this could not have been a better book to follow Wake and I am very impatient to read the final Watersong Series book, Tidal which is coming out Spring I don’t mind, can even like, romance in books, but not when its the typical boyfriend drama that is so stupid and petty in a book like this.

So even though Gemma is the first one directly affected, Harper is changed by it, too. Even though I liked it less than Wake, I am going to finish the series, just because these books are mildly entertaining when you take them less seriously and skim-read. I was looking for a quick, easy read, but I’m more exhausted from rolling my eyes than I expected.

More of a background filler, be prepared for the lack of plot progression. So we’re back with Gemma, who had to leave with the other sirens at the end of the last book, because they’d threatened So I had to check this book out from the library so that I could continue in the series and be ready to read the e-galley of the 4th one that I have. The last few chapters were the strongest part of the book, that’s when stuff really started to happen. I think I was just fascinated by the sirens. Strangers in town for the summer, Penn, Thea, and Lexi have caught everyone’s attention, including the eye of practical Harper.


Amanda Hocking sells Trylle Trilogy film rights. Although, the last few pages just pissed me off. Thea is the only slightly more developed character of the bunch, but still not enough to redeem anything about this book.

Daniel is still trying to get through to Harper, it is so obvious to both of them that there is a spark, but Harper doesn’t want to have to worry about Daniel. And the actions scenes were actually laughable.

And after that, read our interview with Hocking as she talks about her start in self-publishing and the upcoming Watersong series. Sirens are like pandas, too dumb to actually survive on their own; I actually think pandas have an evolutionary advantage, since they make humans want to take care of them.

Penn’s character is so awful. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. And yes, I can resist the watersong. But hey, they made a move, we get it!
