I thought this book was OK. I wasn't sure where Hocking was going with it. I also had a hard time figuring out who was supposed to be the main character. From the back cover, it should be Gemma but she followed Harper more. Truth be told, I liked Harper better. I thought Gemma was a little selfish. Halfway through the book, I wasn't sure if I wanted to continue the series. But then Harper's relationship with Daniel started getting good and interesting and the story started picking up all the way around. By the end, I wanted more. ( )

Not a bad book, I’m just not into it. I was most of the way through, but I didn’t care enough to finish.

I’ve been wanting to read something by Amanda Hocking for a while now and within the first month of 2013 I bought four of her books. I wasn’t sure where to start but I was in the mood for Wake. So I grabbed it off my shelf and read the while book in a day.

It’s not a very long book and because the story is so good I just didn’t want to stop reading. I enjoyed Wake so much. I’m not sure why I’m only giving it four stars because I can’t think of a single thing I disliked. I really, really liked it. I just didn’t love it and I wish I knew why that is.

Please pick up this book if you haven’t yet. I know I will be picking up the next book in this series, Lullaby. I will also be starting Switched, the first book in Hockings Trylle Trilogy very soon. ( )

I read the Trylle books by Amanda Hocking a while ago, and decided that I wanted to read more books written by her. I had seen Wake in my local bookshop for a while now, and decided to just buy it in July. A little investigating on Goodreads told me that this book was about mermaids, or sirens as they call themselves in the story. The first mermaid/siren book I would read; a bit nice since most of the books that I had wanted to read were about vampires, zombies, werewolves or angels.

This book is about Harper (eighteen) and Gemma (sixteen), two sisters who live in Capri with their father. Harper works at the library and reads a lot of books, Gemma loves to swim, and I mean she LOVES it. She takes every chance to be in the water.

Harper cares a lot for her younger sister, sometimes perhaps even too much. She acts like a mother because they don’t really have one themselves. And though that is okay, I sometimes thought Harper was taking it too far.

Then, there were the two love-interests; Daniel (for Harper) and Alex (for Gemma). Honestly, I didn’t feel anything when they got together (not that Harper and Daniel actually got together, because the first half of the book Harper was grossed out by him or something). I didn’t cry out with joy when Alex and Gemma first kissed; like the people of Tumblr would say: I don’t ship it.

And of course there are Penn, Lexi and Thea. The three pretty, mysterious tourists who seem all too interested with Gemma. I thought it was a bit of a shame that we already knew that they were the bad guys from the beginning, because I would have liked a bit more mystery actually. But anyway, they were bitches, absolute bitches. I wanted to smack each of them in the face, ugh.

There wasn’t much action in this book, which I thought was a bit of a shame, because I really liked all the action in the Trylle books, so I had hoped that her other books would have had as much awesome action (I am an action person). I do hope there will be more action and fighting going on in the rest of the series, which I will definitely read!

Amanda Hocking’s writing is good, simple and I really enjoyed reading it. If you’re sick of all those books about vampires, and other overrated supernatural creatures, I recommend you read Wake! And I just have to say, the cover is amazing, wow! ( )
