Waiting on Wednesday (3): Ripple by Mandy Hubbard
Lexi is cursed with a dark secret. Each day she goes to school like a normal teenager, and each night she must swim, or the pain will be unbearable. She is a siren - a deadly mermaid destined to lure men to their watery deaths. After a terrible tragedy, Lexi shut herself off from the world, vowing to protect the ones she loves. But she soon finds herself caught between a new boy at school who may have the power to melt her icy exterior, and a handsome water spirit who says he can break Lexi's curse if she gives up everything else. Lexi is faced with the hardest decision she's ever had to make: the life she's always longed for - or the love she can't live without?
This is one of those books I'm more interested in for the author than the premise. Yeah, I'd probably pick the book up anyway, but mermaid books are always a crap shoot with me, much like angel books. Hubbard is the author of Prada & Prejudice, which I liked, and You Wish, which is in my too read pile.
On a side note, I'm looking to comment about some tv shows I'm enjoying, which is almost unheard of for me considering I have commitment issues with television series. Nine Lives of Chloe King, Falling Skies, Alphas and a couple of new season changes to True Blood suddenly have me interested.
