Welcome everyone :) Things may be a little slow at the moment as I am in my last few months of school so I am swamped with work and exams but if you had time to leave a comment it would make my day!

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. 

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 Lily found out three years ago that her mother was actually a human, she finally realized why she didn’t feel quite at home in Thalassinia, and she’s been living on land and going to Seaview high school ever since, hoping to find where she truly belongs. Sure, 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 tsunami-sized case of mistaken identity, she is in for a tidal wave of relationship drama, and she finds out, quick as a tailfin flick, that happily-ever-after never sails quite as smoothly as you planned.

Reading Forgive My Fins was like watching a Disney movie. Truly magical. It was sweet and romantic and just too cute. I was in bed all day, sick, and read it in one sitting. It definitely made me feel a lot better!

Lily was just SO much fun. She was a little silly and a tiny bit deluded about romance (like most teenage girls are). She uses phrases like "son of a swordfish". It was hilarious. Quince was just adorable. I want a Quince for myself!!

The plot is a little predictable but it was so much fun that I didn't care at all! It wasn't trying to be serious. It was what it was and I loved that. It was full of witty banter and sarcasm and everything else I love.

If you love romances, fun characters and swoon worthy boys then you will LOVE this. Buy it. Read it. Love it.
