Welcome to A Treasure Trove of Books. My name is Skye and in this blog you will find reviews, book tags, book, hauls, and many other bookish related things and I update daily.
For those who don’t know what Wattpad is Wattpad is a website and an app where you can read books, fan fiction, articles or poems that other uses publish or you can write your own and publish it. Many of the popular and successful stories, even some of the fan fiction, have been published by major publishers such as After by Anna Todd which had some changes when it was published but you can still read the unchanged story on Wattpad. This story started off as being a Harry Styles and One Direction fan fiction but the only thing that was changed were the character names. So anyway on to my top 10 favourite Wattpad stories . . .
Note: this only includes stories not fan fictions and is in no particular order.

Anyone who reads this and wants to do it. So I tag you. <3
This book is not what I was expecting. I picked it up thinking this would be a fun mythological romance novel. Don’t get me wrong this was a quick fun novel and the writing was good but the last three quarters of the book felt really rushed, there would be 3-6 months between chapters and it felt like she was rushed to finish the book.
This book was the first young adult mermaid sort of book I have read. I had been wanting to read a mermaid book for a long time and this kind of introduced me to it because mermaids are kind of based off of sirens. I think I will be reading more mermaid books now because of this book. The mermaid aspect of this book was portrayed beautifully and the motherly connection between the Ocean and the Sirens was spot on. Although the development of the relationship between Kahlen and Akinli was pretty bad. I felt that there was no real connection between them. He only appears in the book a few times and all the other times he comes up is when Kahlen is moping around because she misses him. For a romance novel it really lacks the romance and focuses more on the relationship between the Sirens and the Ocean.
All in all, it was a good read and the ending was fantastic but the relationship between Akinli and could have been better.
Oh my god. This. Book. Is. amazing. I’m still not over it.
The best way to read this book is to not know much about it. I started reading it knowing things about it but I will not spoil it for you as some people did to me.
This book starts off with a map of the family’s island and the Sinclair family tree which helped me understand who lived where and who each character lived with.
This book kept me guessing. I kept coming up with different theories about what was going on. Some theories going pretty out there.
Cadence and here cousins, Johnny and Mirren and step-cousin, Gat, were all called ‘The Liars’. This was a huge plot hole. I don’t understand why the parents, grandparents and the younger cousins called them the Liars. I understand them calling that between themselves but anyway. The younger cousins were called the littlies and didn’t really talk to the older cousins as much because the older cousins kind of distant themselves away from everyone and did their own thing. The Aunts were close at the beginning but after the grandmother passed away they fought over who was having what whilst the grandfather watched on enjoying them arguing.
In parts of the book there were these made up fairy tales. They were a cool addition to the book and I have never read a book with that in it.
The only thing wrong with this book is it isn't longer or has a sequel. I can’t really say much more about it without spoiling it so this was one of the best book I have ever read and is definitely one of my favourites if you are looking for a contemporary, mystery, young adult, or romance novel this is definitely the one, it will leave you with all the feels you can think of.
