Book Review: Forgive my Fins

Forgive my Fins, by Tera Lynn Childs 

Release date: January 1, 2010
Read: September 2015
Publisher: Katherine Tegan Books
Format: Hardcover, 291 pages

Description on GoodReads: 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.

Review: Forgive my Fins is the epitome of a stereotypical mermaid romance novel.  From the moment the book started, cough cough page six, I already knew who Lily ended up with. It was expected, but still cute to see, or I guess read, how they slowly fell in love with each other. Tera Lynn Childs did a fantastic job of describing life under the sea, with all the specific plant types, colours and even going as far as describing the swift movement of the current. I just wish the fish slang had stayed underwater with the rest of the mermaids.

Favourite quote:
"Some people find beauty in chaos."
-Tera Lynn Childs

Rating: 7/10

Recommended if you like: mermaids, fantasy, romance, a light/playful/childish read

A recipe for disaster,
