#5OnMyTBR — 5 Books with Sirens

Hello darlings!

First #5OnMyTBR of July, how are you??


#5OnMyTBR is a bookish meme hosted by E. @ Local Bee Hunter’s Nook (me!) and you can learn more about it here or in the post announcing it. It occurs every Monday when we post about 5 books on our TBR.

This week’s prompt is Sirens and other water creatures!

We have summer here so I thought it’s a good prompt to make up for missing out on the sea because of COVID! I surely miss swimming in this heat!

|| Into the Drowning Deep by Mira Grant ||




πŸ’› sapphics
πŸ’› “mockumentary”
πŸ’› other rep

I’m a chicken and this is a horror which I’m not good at reading but this is sapphic and the premise of the team wanting to film a “mockumentary” and actually finding sirens and dying is πŸ‘€πŸ‘€ much to think about.

Anyway, evil sirens are great and I hope their teeth are very sharp and they’ll eat some men. Bon AppΓ©tit.

πŸ’› sapphics

Honestly, the thing that hooks me in the most about this book is the cover.

I mean?? Who allowed you to be this pretty?

But also I like the premise of this soft magic mixed in with reality brought into MC’s life by another girl from the island.

It sounds solitary and kind of lonely, too?

||Β In Other Lands byΒ  Sarah Rees Brennan




πŸ’› bi MC
πŸ’› kickass girls
πŸ’› humour

This sounds like a good book for fans of Percy Jackson — funny narrator, fantasy creatures (including mermaids), secret society, weaponry and fitness training… Also, it’s a boarding school in a magic realm like those books which-should-not-be-named!!

And there’s queer rep! BISEXUAL MC, YAY!!!

||Β Siren’s Debt by Richard Amos ||

πŸ’› gay MC
πŸ’› urban fantasy
πŸ’› healing through sex???

I love urban fantasy and that’s the first one I found with a siren MC and that’s also the first male siren MC for me.

Oh, and he’s also a pop star.

That should be a fun read and I want to pick up more series in the future so hopefully, I’ll get to it sometime soon.

Also, the cover looks quite nice for urban fantasy.

|| Found at Sea by Jaclyn Osborn

πŸ’› m/m romance
πŸ’› pirates

So, I might have overshot the number of siren books on my TBR while creating this prompt and I must improvise with the last one.

There are some mermaids, even though they’re not the main cast or main adversary and the pirate Captain is cursed? So it counts, right?


Last thought!

How’s your summer, friends?? I’m already tired of the sun and just want to be able to wear jeans and full-length pants… I’m not the best with hot weather lmao.


  • Do you participate in #5OnMyTBR?
  • Do you have any of those on your TBR?
  • Have you read them maybe? (Make me read them then!!)

  1. Growing up, I desperately used to look for proofs that mermaids exist! That Atlantis existed . I watched Aquamarine and fell in love with it! OH MY GOD THAT WAS SUCH A MAGICAL TIME!! 😍😍

    Been ages since I read anything remotely related to sirens and mermaids and I think it’s time now – looking at all these magical books in your post! 😍😍❀️❀️


    It’s been so long since I read anything related to mermaids.

    1. I’m writing this reply 2nd time since the 1st didn’t send apparently but ah! I loved Aquamarine! Mako Mermaids! Good times… 😍😍

      I’ve read some mermaid books some time ago but now I’m more into those with big teeth! πŸ˜€

      Thank you!!

      (BTW, did you know that humans evolved with the water for some time and we’re one of the few mammals of which offspring can swim right after birth?? πŸ‘€πŸ‘€)
