A Siren's voice

It's been a year since my last update. I have a month of summer break to spend on stuff I probably won't be able to do when my clerkship starts.

First of is reading novels. I'm not sure if I can squeeze some reading time pa kaya I'm trying to read more books as much as I can. The reading continues kahit na summer na, basta wag lang transes. Haha.

Second would be blogging. Ever since our Ilocos trip, I kept on thinking about this baby blog of mine. Being in blog-hiatus is finally done and over. I'm officially back! I just need new interesting bagay bagay that I can blog about and not only the medical experiences I will be encountering in the next years to come. I have a mini list on my mind though, which would include the books I'll be reading, movies I'll be watching, my planner stuff (new!!! eeek), music I listen to and sports updates! I'm still debating if blogging about medicine is proper. Hmmm.

Anyhoooo, I'm here to write a review about my recent read, Siren by Kiera Cass. I'm a huge fan of Kiera and her The Selection series. I blogged about those books more than a year ago (you can scroll to previous posts to see).

Siren is not part of the The Selection series by the way and I don't think that it'll be a part of any soon. But the book cover shares the same idea as the The Selection series. Lovely ladies with very very pretty dresses. Just look at the cover. Gaaaah so pretty!!! <3

The funny thing is at first I thought this was a story about mermaids. Kasi nga siren diba. Haha. As I read through the first chapter, mermaid pa rin iniimagine ko, until I realized that they're not mermaids, they're humans! Who sings very lovely. Hahaha. 

To cut the long story short, plus I don't want to spoil anyone, here's a quick summary of the book.

The protagonist is named as Kahlen, the Ocean made her a Siren. She gets to live for 90 years without getting old. The Ocean is her "boss/mother" together with other Sirens, girls same as her. The sirens' job is to sing to a cruising ship whenever the Ocean is hungry. All the people in that ship will die once they hear the Sirens' voice. The sirens live like normal human beings but they are forbidden to speak because their voices are deadly or are poison to humans. Until one day, Kahlen fell in love with a human boy. They hang out but she can't speak or else Akinli (the guy) would die. (See how difficult that would be huhu forbidden love) Kahlen only has 11 years left of service as Siren then she can be a normal human again. But can love wait? Sure Akinli will get older in 11 years, but not her.

Basta! Obviously, I will leave you hanging there. You have to read it for yourself to find out what happened next. It got a little boring midway but gets better as it ends.

I guess that's all for now. I'm currently reading Glass Sword, now that's a better book! So you wait till I blog about it. :P

I miss ya'll.
