Tiger’s Curse review

Description: Passion. Fate. Loyalty.

Would you risk it all to change your destiny?

The last thing Kelsey Hayes thought she’d be doing this summer was trying to break a 300-year-old Indian curse. With a mysterious white tiger named Ren. Halfway around the world. But that’s exactly what happened. Face-to-face with dark forces, spellbinding magic, and mystical worlds where nothing is what it seems, Kelsey risks everything to piece together an ancient prophecy that could break the curse forever.

Tiger’s Curse is the exciting first volume in an epic fantasy-romance that will leave you breathless and yearning for more.

My thoughts: I feel like I’ve been saying some of the same things I said in my last review. Tiger’s Curse was interesting, but it left much to be desired. The premise was exciting and sounded like the beginning of a potentially great series. But by the end of this first book, I was just thinking that most of the story feels like the prologue before the real story starts. There was adventure and romance, but it seemed premature. And the real enemy didn’t even show up until the last few pages.

The only thing I can go off of right now is the potential of the series. Like, maybe I’d read the next book because it has the potential to be good. I don’t know if it will, but I might give it a try.

For now, this is how I feel about this book/series: 
(which means I'm contemplating if I should read the next book)

My Top Ten Books I'd Recommend As Good Beach Reads

I actually read one book per summer. And since this is my third summer, that means I'll finally finish the trilogy *tear*.

OK, I have not read this yet. But I know enough to know it's a great book to read this summer.

This isn't a light read, but it'll probably give you a different outlook on how you live your life. And summer is the perfect time for change.

This is another one of John Green's book that makes me reassess how I see myself (and others). It's also my favorite book of all time!

This selection has more to do with the fact that I am now reading the last book in this series. And I can still remember buying this book from Amazon about 3-4 summers ago, right before I started this blog.

Sidenote: The Wicked Lovely series is my favorite series ever!

I can also remember having this book by the side of my bed so I could read it after Wicked Lovely. And now the Black Dagger Brotherhood series is my favorite adult series. If you like this kind of book (and are old enough to read it), you'll probably love this series.

Love love LOVE this book and the other books in this series. And summer is a great time to catch up on your mythology!

This is a fast read (which is summer appropriate), but very fun and very smart. I'd also suggest the second book in the series.

In My Mailbox 82

I only received one book this week, but I've been M.I.A. for a couple months, so I'm pretty happy!
