Goodreads summary:

Alosa’s mission is finally complete. Not only has she recovered all three pieces of the map to a legendary hidden treasure, but the pirates who originally took her captive are now prisoners on her ship. Still unfairly attractive and unexpectedly loyal, first mate Riden is a constant distraction, but now he’s under her orders. And she takes great comfort in knowing that the villainous Vordan will soon be facing her father’s justice.

When Vordan exposes a secret her father has kept for years, Alosa and her crew find themselves in a deadly race with the feared Pirate King. Despite the danger, Alosa knows they will recover the treasure first . . . after all, she is the daughter of the Siren Queen.

My thoughts:

“I may not have been born in the sea, but I was born to rule it.
I am the daughter of the siren queen.” 

I just realized that I have never reviewed a second book in a series before so this will be a first. I don’t know why but I usually have a hard time reviewing second books because they’re either as awesome as the first or a complete disappointment in comparison to it. This book was somewhere in the middle.

Just like Daughter of the Pirate King, this one also started super strong in the middle of action. It was another fast paced read with plenty of humor and non stop action which I loved. But sadly, despite really enjoying it, I also had a lot of issues with it.

Bookstagram Tips and Tricks

Hello and happy 1st day of Spring! I know I disappeared again the past few weeks (I’ve once again been super busy) but the sun is shining outside today and I’m in a rather good mood so I’m finally back with a new blog post! And this one is all about bookstagram! I’ve had so many people ask me for advice on how to start a bookstagram or how to improve their accounts and photography so I figured it would be a good idea to write a blog post and give you all some tips on bookstagramming! Keep in mind that I’m in no way an expert, nor do I consider myself one, but I’ve been a bookstagrammer for almost three years now so I’ve a learned a thing or two! 🙂

Getting Started

Theme

The first thing you need to establish before you start your bookstagram is your theme. Not all your photos have to look the same but it’s nice to have some consistency and the easiest way to achieve that is through editing. Editing is a bookstagrammer’s best friend. You might wanna take a photo outside but also take a photo on your shelves. You know that they’re going to be completely different but editing them the same way or adding the same filter can go a long way into making them match! I personally love seeing bookstagram feeds that have a certain style or theme and always find them more aesthetically pleasing!
