Forgive My Fins book. This is the first book I’ve read by Tera Lynn Childs. It was also my first mermaid story, other than The Little Mermaid

Forgive My Fins book. It was also my first mermaid story, other than The Little Mermaid. So, I can’t compare it to any other YA mermaid books out there, but I did like the different twist from the Little Mermaid.

Forgive My Fins - Tera Lynn Childs. Forgive My Fins is an adorable tale about a young mermaid living her teenage years on land. It's filled with fun terminology and an adorable love story that I look forward to reading more about these memorable characters!Lily Sanderson is half mermaid and half human, she has lived in the sea for all of her life and she wants to get a taste of the world that her mother comes from.

Unrequited love is hard enough when you’re a normal teenage girl, but for mermaid Lily Sanderson, there’s no such thing as a simple crush.

Lily has a secret, and it’s not her huge crush on gorgeous swimming god Brody Bennett, who makes her heart beat flipper-fast. Lily’s mermaid identity is a secret that can’t get out, since she’s not just any mermaid—she’s a Thalassinian princess.

When she discovered three years ago that her mother was actually a human, Lily finally realized why she didn’t feel quite at home in Thalassinia, and she’s been going to Seaview High ever since.

Living on land has its problems—like her obnoxious biker-boy neighbor, Quince Fletcher—but it has that one major perk: Brody. The problem is, mermaids aren’t really the casual dating type—when they bond, it’s for life.

When Lily’s attempt to win Brody’s love leads to a case of mistaken identity, she finds out, quick as a tailfin flick, that happily ever after never sails quite as smoothly as you planned.

This book was beyond cute. I haven't read a good mermaid book in over a year, so I was past due for one. And this was the perfect series for me to pick up. I have already started the second book because I didn't want the story to be over when I finished the first one. I have been reading so many new adult contemporaries lately (which I still love) that it was nice to switch it up to a cute paranormal young adult book.

Lily is a mermaid that is living on land for a while. Her dad is king of her mer kingdom, but he seems like the most loving, most understanding dad out there. Seriously, he was great. Lily seems just like a normal girl, except she has powers, like she can affect the temperature of water and she can craft minor items of clothing and stuff like that, and she loves salty baths. Lily goes to high school where she has a crush Brody, a guy on the swim team. She also has a best friend and an annoying next door neighbor Quince. It becomes apparent pretty quickly who the real love interest was going to be but that didn't bug me. I loved Quince and even though Lily "couldn't stand him" they were still beyond adorable together.

Lily accidentally bonds with Quince and she has to take him to her kingdom to sever the bond so she can bond with Brody. The whole book is about their adventures back and forth between land and her mer kingdom. I loved Quince. He kind of butts heads with Lily but he makes her passionate and fiery about life. I think he makes her a more lively and interesting person, or mermaid. I was so annoyed with Lily a few times when she kept making choices for the two of them. She kind of made up for it at the end but I just wanted to shake her and get her to see how great Quince was. I really liked Lily. She is responsible, and loyal and a great person. But man oh man is she stubborn. Quince gets her though, and he likes her despite all of her quirks. Lily made a decision at the end of the book that broke my heart. She kind of made up for it but I really just wanted her to go about things differently.

What I really liked about Forgive my Fins is that it was a journey for Lily more than anyone else. I know that sounds backwards, it should be a journey for Quince since he was being introduced to a completely new world, but it was much more growth for Lily than for Quince. He seemed to take everything in stride, but Lily needed a bit of a wake up call. I loved watching her progress, and sometimes her setbacks, and I loved watching her mature and grow. Another great thing about this book is that the ending is not a cliffhanger. It can be seen as a standalone almost because the second book picks up a different plotline. Something completely new happens, but it follows the same characters. I can't wait to see where Lily and Quince will end up next!
doesnt Do You
Lily Sanderson is not your typically teenage girl crushing on the popular swimmer boy, Brody. She’s also a mermaid. Through a few unfortunate circumstances, she ends up bonding with her neighbor and tormentor, Quince. For mermaids, bonding is for life, unless broken before the next lunar cycle. Lily doesn’t waste a moment in trying to get the bond broken, but is it what she actually wants?

When buying books I don’t know much about, I’ve started to read the reviews others have posted. There were a decent amount of people that didn’t like the book, but I decided to buy it anyways because the book was on sale for $1.99. I really regret it.

There was definitely a lot of good things in this book. I loved how the author incorporated the sea slang into the book. I found the mermaid mythology to be really interesting and I liked that the author actually clothed the mermaids (which is a very rare thing with mermaid stories).

My biggest issue with this book is Lilly, the main character. I can totally understand (and identify) with the whole ‘having a crush on a guy that you don’t really know,’ but Lilly took it too far. She couldn’t get over him at all and they barely spoke. I was so frustrated when she couldn’t even recognize her growing feelings for Quince. Any normal person wouldn’t be that stupid to brush them off so easily.

I really liked Quince’s character, but I wish there was a bit more of the real him showing through before they were bonded. Everyone could tell that he picked on her because he liked her, but I feel like his shift between annoying and caring was a bit abrupt. Once they were bonded, he seemed to just completely stop picking on her/joking about her and that is a bit uncharacteristic of him.

I really didn’t enjoy the ending. (SPOILERS) Because of Lily’s stupidity, they get the separation and then she finally understands that she love him. It’s so aggravating that he was going to give up everything for her, but she just threw it back in his face. Then she goes back to land to be with him. Ugh! Could you not have just been a little less pig-headed and stayed bonded with him? I understand it’s sweet and all that she’s now sacrificing her world for his, but as of the synopsis of the next book, we see she has to go back. (END SPOILERS)

I would really love to know how this all ends, mostly because I can’t really stand starting a series and not finishing it, but I really don’t want to have to sit through the rest of the books. I could feel myself just wishing this book got to the inevitable point – where Lily realized she loved Quince. Don’t get me wrong, the writing in this book was good, but I just couldn’t stand Lily’s frustrating emotions and stubbornness.
