Hello everyone! I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but I’ve been a bit inactive lately. I haven’t posted here or on instagram (which I should have), I haven’t caught up with other blog posts or comments and I rarely checked social media. That’s because this past week has been crazy, and I don’t expect the next two to be any different – with all the school work I’ve had to do, it’s a miracle I still find time to read!
(For the records, I don’t. I just have to sacrifice my time for other things in order to find time to read.)
Today I’m sharing with you a post I wrote some time ago, and sadly, it’s a review of a book that I didn’t like that much. I haven’t read any mermaid book besides A Thousand Salt Kisses, and now, its sequel, A Thousand Salt Kisses Later – I actually found the titles a bit odd, but by reading this second book, I understood it. Unfortunately, they didn’t live up to my expectations.
Title: A Thousand Salt Kisses Later
(A Thousand Salt Kisses, #2)
Author: Josie Demuth
Publisher: Wise Ink
The spellbinding sequel to A Thousand Salt Kisses.
Four years ago, Crystal White fell in love with Llyr, a prince of the magical mer colony living off the coast of Starfish Island. For one summer, he enchanted her with stories of jeweled palaces and underwater gardens, but then he left, returning beneath the waves with her heart in tow.
Now, graduated and with no job in sight, Crystal is forced to go back to the island she thought she had left in the past. By the sea again, she realizes she is far from over her first love, and when an opportunity arises to contact the merfolk, Crystal can’t resist.
Once more with the mer, Crystal is forced to come to terms with the fact that Llyr has moved on, and also with her own magical secret that has endangered her life, his throne, and every mer kingdom. Working against all odds, she has to try to save the people she has come to love and—if she can—rekindle the romance of her first summer on Starfish Island.
