    One thought on “Lullaby”

    1. Me ha aburrido mucho, la cosa es que desde el principio todo pintaba en buscar una salvación y ha pasado de todo menos encontrar algo. Las partes de Harper me siguen pareciendo aburridas y sólo me parecen interesantes cuando está con Daniel o Álex pero aún así.Hubiese estado genial leer más sobre los poderes de Gemma y que explique los cambios y como se siente y todo sobre sirenas por que al final este es el tema principal pero lo están dejando como muy secundario. Espero que el tercer l [...]

    2. 2 stars.To all you aspiring authors out there, what's the number one rule of writing? Show, don't tell. I really don't think Amanda Hocking's grasped this concept yet. Instead of telling us how the sirens' commands work, show us by making Gemma accidentally command someone. Instead of telling us how Harper's coping without Gemma, show us by making her fret about laundry or something. I usually have a pretty high tolerance of telling-not-showing, but this was a case I couldn't gloss over.Gemma ha [...]

    3. Since Gemma ran off with the sirens, Harper and Alex have teamed up to bring Gemma home no matter what it takes. They do some research on sirens but find no way to kill them or free Gemma. It seems almost impossible but Daniel also agrees to help. Alex puts up missing person ads all over the web and Daniel checks the newspapers.Gemma is fighting against her siren nature as hard as she can but it is making her sick. She hates the sirens but suffers through to keep Harper and Alex safe. I'm not su [...]

    4. If you think the first book was uneventful, wait until you read this one. First half is full of angst, and Gemma whining about wanting to leave and not being able to. Second half is after Gemma decides to leave, despite all the logical reasons why she should not and she can not do so. Did I mention that in the first book she draws all sort of stupid conclusions so I kinda felt she was stupid? Well, be prepared, because this book does it's best to validate my point. Here, despite the fact that sh [...]

    5. Amaaazing Book i don't know why but i never been into sirens stuff but in this book it just sounds real or i can imagine it this book really have many cute parts where you'll bee likee owww aaahh cuteee :') you can feel the character feeling there described perfectly not too detailed but over all its just a simple book i love the fact that Love is way stronger that the sirens stuff which basically shows that nothing can stop the way you feel towards that special person but seriously the wate [...]

    6. I really have some review to re do.That means i'll be re reading some of my faves : sweet!!!!But what I can say about this one it's that this story made me laugh, fall in love, fear and feel angry at the same time. A whole action movie where the mermaids aren't the sweetest thing just like Ariel made us believe!XDoh, and they have peaks!

    7. 2.5 StarsLullaby is more of a background filler than an actual plot progression.The first half of the book is extremely slow, uneventful and boring as hell but the other half progressed mercifully quickly. I don't hate the book but I don't love it either. I'm not even sure I like it. The main reason why I picked up this book is because the sirens intrigued me and this is the first time I've come across such mythological creatures and I love Greek Mythology. Harper and Daniel were also one of the [...]

    8. Overall Rating: 3.5 starsShort Summary. After inheriting the curse of a siren and leaving her home and everyone she loved, Gemma Fisher begins her new life. Having beauty, magical power, and immortality scares her and she decides to treat it as a curse and not as a gift. However, one kiss will push her over the edge which makes her lose control of herself and everything she believes in. Her sister, Harper, decides that she will do anything that's in her will to find Gemma even if it means to lea [...]

    9. Actually 1,5*Again, nothing really happens in this book.The first part of the book is all about Harper trying to find Gemma by calling people on the phone (like, seriously?) and trying desperately not to get involved with Daniel because he will somehow distract her from finding her sister, even though he is the only helpful one in this situation (again, seriously?).As for Gemma, the first part is about her whining for being a mermaid and doing everything in her power to be miserable and weak, wh [...]

    10. Ook van het tweede deel in de Watersong serie heb ik oprecht genoten. Ik vind het onderwerp van de serie heel origineel. Het boek leest heel vlot, je leest het in één keer uit. Het verhaal is spannend en onvoorspelbaar. Waarom dan geen vijf sterren? Naar mijn mening mocht er nog wat meer actie in het boek voorkomen. Ik hoop dan ook dat er in het derde deel wat meer gaat gebeuren. Alsnog heb ik van dit boek genoten!

    11. So I had to check this book out from the library so that I could continue in the series and be ready to read the e-galley of the 4th one that I have. Now, I only gave the first book in the series a 3 out of 5 stars, but I liked this one even better than the first, and gave it a 4 out of 5. If you haven't read the first one, you might want to stop here, as there will be spoilers.So we're back with Gemma, who had to leave with the other sirens at the end of the last book, because they'd threatened [...]

    12. After reading Wake, I basically devoured Lullaby right away. It bugs me to leave a story unfinished let alone a series, so I finished Lullaby in no time. But it took me awhile to gather my thoughts about this book. In some ways, I became more invested in the series. But at the same time, Lullaby didn't shatter my world.Lullaby suffers from second book syndrome. The book was more of a filler than a plot progressor. It had a cliffhanger at the end and there weren't really any "twists" to make the [...]

    13. This book was so good, despite the comments that say so otherwise. Again, my only problem is that it should be longer -I read the whole book in a sitting. The end of this novel left me on a cliffhanger (kind of), and I can't wait to find out what happens next. I totally recommend this series to all readers out there.

    14. A great continuation of the story. This is my kind of "magic" story, some of the genre can really bore me but I love the sexy yet scary mix. Really had me sucked into the story. Can't wait to read the next one! Great Read!

    15. I have one sister, and growing up, we fought frequently. As much fighting as we did, we never went so far as to actually try to murder one another like the sirens in Lullaby did. If I had to spend a couple of thousands of years in close proximity with a couple of sisters, completely with insanity and jealousy and rivalry, I'm pretty sure I wouldn't make it either.I have a theory as to why there aren't any more mermaids and sirens in the world these days. It's not because they're mythical creatur [...]

    16. 3.5/5Review also on my blogIf you read my Wake review you’d know that I just thought it was okay, but fortunately I ended up liking Lullaby more! It didn't completely blow my mind and make me fall head over heels in love with it or anything, but I found myself growing onto the characters more, and there was more suspense and things actually happening! Now, that wasn't exactly true for the first half of the story since at the time, I was convinced this was just gonna be some filler book, but it [...]

    17. If you have not read book one, Wake, I would recommend not reading this review until you have read the first. I lost myself to the watersong once again! Amanda Hocking created a sequel that was even better than its predecessor. LULLABY was filled with secrets, tons of actions, and more of the sirens! It's official: I am addicted to this series!LULLABY had so much action in it! Especially the ending. As we travel with Gemma and the sirens, we are introduced to more characters and more betrayals. [...]

    18. Lullaby! What a great title, right? I pictured the sea shining under the moonlight and a beautiful song sounding from the pit of the world, like magic, calling people to its trap. And yes, there was a song, and the gorgeous sirens and a beautiful night sky but once again, I felt like there was a wall between me and the story. I couldn't connect with the characters even if they were good characters. Harper too despite that she is a control freak. But there is this space between me and the story t [...]

    19. I have to say that this book is better than the first. There's much more going on and the story really takes a step forward in its overall progress. That being said, I do think that Wake and Lullaby could possibly been condensed into one book. Perhaps not, but some of the mundane activities that we watch the characters partake in really aren't needed. Then there was that whole scene with the Ouija Board-- was that filler, or was that groundwork for something to come? It was out of place to say t [...]

    20. 3.5 - 4 StarsMermaids and magic, what could be better?!This started off a bit slow but the last few chapters were so gripping! I was losing kind of interest but then stuff started to happen and I couldn't put the book down!I'm really interested in this curse and I really want the third book to focus on that a lot more. I feel like this book only touched on it. There wasn't a lot of time spent researching about sirens or curses, it seemed like until the last few pages everyone was just taking thi [...]

    21. Antes de empezar esta saga, una de mis booktubers favoritas comento que despues de el primer libro todo carecía de sentido y era relleno. . . espere, y al leer este libro puedo decir que no encontre nada de mi agrado. Lo que me hace querer seguir leyendo es el misterio que envuelve a las sirenas, pero si el próximo libro es asi. . . realmente me quita las ganas de leer esta saga.

    22. Read this baby in a day and it was OK.I enjoyed Watersong #1 ("Wake")-it's a new series about a girl who is turned into a Siren and I'm a sucker for modern-takes on mythology. I will admit, I also read "Siren" by Tricia Rayburn and found the same subject tackled but executed much better.Anyway, "Lullaby" explores the idea of Sirens in more depth and we get more on Harper, Gemma's sister, who is on a quest to save her little sister from the beautiful and sinister sirens. Great plot all around.How [...]

    23. **3.5**Okay, so after reading Wake, I was looking forward to reading Lullaby. I enjoyed it, although not as much as I would have thought. The characters were great and you could see the grow. I love Daniel, I think he is my favorite character out of all of them. I really hope the next book has more of Daniel and his story. I'm very curious as to why he isnt affected by the Sirens song while Alex and Harper are. It was interesting watching Gemma fight instict with morality and the choices that sh [...]

    24. I just read Wake a couple days ago, & was DYING to know what happened. I was lucky enough to find a signed hardcover edition of Lullaby last night, so of course I bought it, started it, & finished it today.I LOVE these books. I love the modern YA mythology retellings; books like Meg Cabot's ABANDON and Tera Lynn Childs' SWEET VENOM and OH MY GODS books are high on my list of favorites, and I can now say that Amanda Hocking's WATERSONG books- delving into the myths of the Sirens in a comp [...]

    25. He estado dudando entre las dos o tres estrellas pero creo que lo justo es quedarse en 2'5 (tirando hacía abajo).A pesar de que esta segunda parte no ha estado mal (la narración sigue siendo fluida y sencilla, y ocurren ciertas cosas interesantes) esperaba algo más, y es que a 'Encanto' le falta chicha. Si bien es cierto que la primera parte del libro pinta bastante bien, a partir de la segunda mitad la acción se detiene y comienza a crearse una atmósfera llena de tensión ya que -se supone [...]

    26. I'm shocked. Speechless, in fact. Lullaby was better than I expected. I didn't bother reading Wake, just cause it didn't catch my attention as much as Lullaby did. But I fully understand everything even if I didn't read the first book!Harper and Daniel make such a cute couple! And he is just soo sexy ;)Gemma was never exactly my favorite, and I totally hate her now because of what happened at the end of Lullaby and what she did to Alex.The Sirens stayed the same: hags. Penn is just beyond evil. [...]
