    One thought on “Updrift”

    1. Overall Rate 4Performance Rate 5Story Rate 4This book is going to be hard to review. Not because I disliked it, on the contrary I think it's fantastic but it is so good that I don't want to ruin any of it with spoilers. Oh well here goesAfter the death of her husband, Cara decides to move, with her daughter Kate to become a librarian in a small coastal town. They find contentment there, and make some good friends including the mysterious Blake family. Cara falls in love with John, they marry and [...]

    2. If any of you guys know my bookish taste, you would know i love a great mermaid novel, and Uplift is one amazing one. An intense romance to end all romances. Updrift is a very original story. The “rules” in mermaid novels are completely different from the “rules” in this novel! and thats why this book is very unique. Mermaids and Sirens everywhere it awesome. The relationships in this novel were INTENSE! Like SO intense and i loved every minute of it. I loved Gabe and Kates relationship! [...]

    3. Well this was the book to get me out of my reading slump. I started Updrift and found it beyond difficult to ever put it down. Other than Han's Christian Anderson's The Little Mermaid, I haven't ventured much into the waters of siren mythology. So I found the modern take on the folklore of Updrift to be fascinating and refreshing. The romance here is spot on. I found myself riding the waves of sexual tension with pleasure. And the intrigue kept me turning pages far into the night. Beautifully wr [...]

Kate is happy for her mother's new found happiness, but after a while, she feels [...]

    5. YAY! Mermaids! Love mermaids and the cover, so reading this is a no brainer. I immediately thought of Splash, only in reverse, the girl ‘falls’ in the water and falls in love with the ‘boy’. I’m hooked.Updrift by Errin Stevens is Kate’s life from the time she is five years old to adulthood. I love seeing her grow and develop from an introverted nerd, to a strong, determined woman with desires that will not be denied and one who knows the difference between right and wrong and will st [...]

    6. "Use the term siren, please," he begged. "I always picture myself in drag when I hear mermaid, and I'm not very pretty." He shuddered.This is my favourite line in the book.I have wanted to read Updrift ever since I met Erri on I stagram over a year ago and I honestly have to say that I absolutely loved this story! It's exciting, it's new and fresh and it has all the feels!!I have nothing bad to say about this book. Sure, part 1 is a little slow but it's not boring or dull in any way. There's hum [...]

    7. With so few mermaid tales out there I was thrilled to discover Updrift, even more so when I realized that the mermaid’s in the book were actually the guys – orSiren’sI should say.The story is simple enough, Kate and her mum move to a new town where they both form strong bonds with a couple of the local men. The book then follows them through many years and life changing events. For me, this is where a lot of my issues with Updrift lay.When the story begins Kate is just six years old. The f [...]

    8. A copy was given to me in exchange for an honest review. As much as I wanted to like this book, it was quite disappointing.The story's premise was interestimg, yes. Thats's what made me want to read it in the first place, but the story was dragging. I put it down one too many times, even considered DNFing it, but decided not to. After ignoring it again and again, I gave it another go.I finished it, but it still didn't change my opinion about it.The pacing was slow.The characters didn't really le [...]

    9. I received this book for free through a Giveaway in exchange for an honest review.It had a rough start for me But to be fair I started reading it during Christmas week and was in and out of it with family distractions. It felt much more fluid about halfway through. I loved the deep romance that the sirens experience and the magics they possess. I had been craving a mermaid novel and was pleased to find one that wasn't toooo young and fluffy. All in all, it was a nice story. =)

    10. *Warning - harsh, maybe brutal* I really wanted to like this book. Bottom line, I felt like this was an info dump. It was the prime example writers are told NOT to do show not tell. I felt shoved through this story as fast as Kate's hijacked life set by her mother and Gabe's mother. Brutal, I know. Snobbish? Most certainly. I always try to find the good in stories and there were glimmers of hope sprinkled about but not seized upon. As a reader I was told about dialogue but not made a part of. I [...]

    11. UPDRIFT BY: ERRIN STEVENS    Updrift wasn't exactly what I was expecting, but it was still an enjoyable read. I guess I was expecting a little more action and fantasy in this book, and while it did ultimately deliver on both of these, it did take quite some time to really do so. BUT where these elements were lacking in the first half or so of the story, there was really strong character and relationship development. In my opinion this was probably the strongest element in this story. So while [...]

    12. First I want to thank Errin Stevens for sending me a review copy of Updrift!I found this book quite difficult to get into in the beginning.We start off with Kate being a child and moving with her mother to a new town. We got a taste of her home life and her family. I really enjoyed the beginning, but I found it very fast paced. This wasn’t necessarily a bad thing, although it made it hard to focus. A lot of things were happening very quickly after each other. A hundred pages covered 17 years i [...]

    13. Updrift is a beautifully crafted romance novel that involves fantasy and a wider scope of events. One of my favorite things about this romance was that it wasn't just merely a romance; instead, it was a fantasy adventure as well as a mystery, and that added tantalizing substance to the story.It is not often that I read a book that captures such a beautiful perspective of a child, and this novel achieved that perspective from the beginning. Errin Stevens also made Kate's growth appear so effortle [...]

    14. I'm deciding to DNF this one because there are just so many problems with it that I'm struggling now to continue on. Let's start with the writing: There is so much TELLING! Like it's mostly the narrator prattling off a list of stuff that's happening. The POV is third person but switches who he focus is at random increments and introduces new character focuses 1/3 of the way thru the book.The pacing was just awful . In the beginning I never could figure out what age the characters were when stuff [...]

    15. I have very mixed feelings about this book.I love the story and the idea of it, but I just couldn't get into it or get motivated to read it. I found myself looking for other books to read and eventually ended up listening to the audiobook so I could get it done.I did however, love the story line. The beginning half is a bit hard to get into because it is Kate's whole childhood all in 100 pages, making it hard to become connected to the characters.The characters weren't my absolute favourite, I w [...]

    16. * I received this book in exchange for an honest review *It's hard to rate this book. I liked it, it was good, but it took me so long to finish.It's the first book I've ever read about mermaid, excuse me, sirens. The way it was written slowed down the story though.What I did really like was the way the story was built. The first half of the book it Kate growing up with Gabe. It takes the instant romance away that you often encounter in book. You know the history these two characters have and tha [...]

    17. I had yet to read a book on mermaids/sirens, and I'm glad I was able to pick this one up. The story line to this book was perfect and the characters were perfect. If you're looking for a book with some mermaids and some love tension that will take you out of a reading slump, satisfy your needs for a good book. You need to pick this up. I can't wait to read the next books in this series by Errin Stevens, this book had me wanting more!

    18. omg!This book starts of as one thing and ends as another! It was such an incredible romance read. The relationship between Kate and Gabe was just breath taking and refreshing. His bound with her is incredible.I loved this take on mermaids/ sirens, such a different read. LOVE LOVE LOVECan i be a merman now!

    19. I gobbled this book up,,,great imagination,,,great adventure,,spectacular evil/compromised character,,,a plot that just kept unwinding with an amazing ending. Highly imaginative but very real with an adventurous romance.

    20. I was vacation in the Outerbanks of North Carolina when I read this. Was such a fun read. Loved how you followed the characters through there years of school and how Gabriel and Kate were such good friends throughout. It seemed a bit rushed once they became older, and would have liked to learn more about the way the stars had to do with how Kate and Gabe were so close to each other. With the book taking place in North Carolina and myself visiting it made the book that much more interesting to re [...]

    21. First of all let me say that I'm not usually a fan of paranormal romance, but honestly I've never read a mermaid story before (except for watching The Little Mermaid with my daughters of course)! But when I happened on this title on Litsy, I realized I needed to give it a chance and I was pleasantly surprised! I liked the relationship between Kate and her mother, Cara who is mourning her husband's untimely death. When the two relocate, we meet the Blake family and it's clear there are some oddit [...]

    22. I will start by saying, wow!!! A beautifully written aquatic tale full of sexual tension, engrossing characters and captivating imagery. Once you begin to read this book, you will find yourself captivated until the adventurous end. Will definitely read the second book!!I requested a copy for reviewing purposes and made no guarantee of a favorable review. The opinions expressed here are unbiased and my own.

    23. -I received this book in exchange for an honest review.Updrift, by Errin Stevens, is a paranormal romance that tells the story of two lovers. The book is reminiscent of a children’s story, shrouded by innocence and magic, as their love unfolds. The book is divided into three parts. The first part introduces Kate, a young girl who meets the enigmatic Gabe and his family, as well as illustrates their budding friendship. The second part focuses on Kate struggling to grow up, and not only addresse [...]

    24. I'm always interested in different author's takes on sirens and mermaids. it was a good enough story to keep me reading but not a memorable one. I felt no connection to the characters and often felt like they were still teenagers despite being in their 20's.

    25. My Review: 3(2.5?)/5 stars (spoiler-free!!)I was sent this book in return for an honest review. I think in order to properly review this book, I have to do it in sections.I'll start with the plot, which overall I would rate a 3/5. I really liked the way certain events played out, were paced, etc. However, some events felt like they weren't necessary. For example, all of the focus on Dana and Will in the middle of the book. I thought they were going to be part of a key event/turn into main charac [...]

    26. This book was hands down one of the best that I've read this year. I love books about fantasy creatures and Updrift doesn't dissapoint. The author has taken the normal stories of mermaids and breathed new life into them. Kate, a sweet and caring girl from Kansas, moves to a small North Carolina town with her mother after the death of her father. In the new nurturing environment Kate's mom finally starts to heal, the two become happier then they have in years. Kate meets Gabe a cute and charming [...]

    28. Review by TinaThe minute I received the book from the author herself, I began to read it right away. What a compelling story! From the opening paragraph, the story captured my interest completely. The story begins with a little girl out boating with her mother when she was lured into the ocean to play with a little boy. He promises her adventure and the little girl follows him. To her mother's horror, she thought she'd drown. This is how the Sweetings fatefully met the Blakes that day. The two f [...]

    29. ***After chatting with Author on Instagram for a while, I received a copy of this book as a gift from her. The following review is fully my own opinion.The idea of a modern retelling of The Little Mermaid was very intriguing to me, especially after Errins said she pulled from the HC Andersen version, not the Disney version. I was more than excited for this concept.And then I started reading the book it was just not for me As I often say in my reviews, I need to be transported into the world thro [...]

    30. DNF @2% Ive attempted to start this book several times in the past few months and each time I have been unable to immerse myself and read more than a few pages in. I am incredibly intrigued by the story and want to discover it but I'm blocked by a wall of clunky writing. I read sentences that are badly constructed and read like they were written by a non-native English speaker. For example:"This meant, Kate knew, a visit the next day was unlikely."Should have been written as"Kate knew this meant [...]
