“Never underestimate the girls of this world.”

🌟 Currently there are only 6 people who rated this 1 star and I am one of those people! I feel bad about it but I just can’t. I gave this many chances and I decided finally that it is just not for me.

🌟 The day this book was released I was excited for it but then I wasn’t in the mood to read it so I finished Mirage and City of Ghosts and a couple of days later, I am in the mood again to read this so I picked it up immediately.

🌟 I also hadn’t much luck with mermaids and Pirate stories this year (And there were many), I thought that this was going  to save the day but it looks like I am not into the whole pirate thing. I really love the cover and a really wanted to love the book too.

🌟 My problem was with the writing style, I did not like it. I went into this and felt sleepy after a few chapters. I thought it may be due to studying and I was tired. I put it down and picked it up at a later break where the same thing happened again and again.
I had insomnia that night, and I was flipping in my bed and I decided to read this! I read 2 pages and I slept immediately (I swear this truly happened and not an exaggeration).

🌟 I just couldn’t get into the story, I tried once and twice and thrice and I found a moment or two where I saw a light at the end of the tunnel, where I thought I will finally get into the story, only to lose interest a couple of pages later.

🌟 So I don’t know if the problem was me, or with the writing or with the whole Pirates genre but I gave this many chances and read exactly one-third of it before giving up on it and deciding to DNF. I don’t feel regret or interest in the story after I let it sink in. I do recommend trying the book, if you like it then it is great but if you can’t get into it then you probably won’t. I ended up giving it 1.5 out of 5 stars!

  2. I’m sorry to hear you didn’t like this one 😦 I’ve surprisingly never read a pirate book before but this one will probably be my first. It’s on my TBR, I’m just not sure when I’ll get to it haha.

  4. I like when I am the first review or the top of review. But I think that being part of the six that gave of one store it’s good enough haha maybe this book fell flat for you since they are so many Pirates and mermaids around :/ hope you could get your money back if you made any time for it haha thank you for sharing!!

    I I am struggling with a book too so I feel you there xD

  5. Oh no! I’m so sorry to hear you disliked this so much 😦 Well, ‘dislike’ I guess is a very strong word… More like it was super boring and put you to sleep xD Oh dear.

    I was really looking forward to it because I absolutely adore pirates and mermaids stories but I think I need to lower my expectations a bit now. Just so I don’t have any unpleasant surprises!

    Anyway, great review and I hope you find something more interesting to read soon! 🙂
