    This book absolutely blew me out of the water with it's epicness! And I hope you PAUSED FOR A SECOND to view the flawless grace of that terrific pun right there. Because its'a bout ships and water?? GET IT?? *smothers self for terrible pun* MOVING FORWARD! I'm always on the look out fo...

    I can see now why many folks are having a tough time rating this one. On the one hand, it was fun, enjoyable, and entertaining, but on the other it was filled with the heavy fodder of sailor lingo and descriptions of scenes that were slow and lacking action. Overall, this one won me ov...

    Reviewed by: Rabid Reads 4.5 stars I love YA fantasy. I don't know why, I just do. That being said, in recent years, I've become a bit gun-shy, preferring to rerereread old favorites rather than taking a chance on a new author. I guess I should say I love good YA fantasy. A...

    Man this is a tough one. I adored the story and there was so much potential, but the writing was so difficult to wade through that the plot was a bit lost on me. The first 10% or so was very meh - so much sailor lingo and I honestly had no clue what was going on for the first sever...

    This one's hard to rate because I LOVE ships and finding female characters who go off on pirate adventures. And there were a ton of elements of this world that I loved, like the shadowmen, hints of magic, and harbor towns. But it was still kind of hard for me to get into the overall st...

    dnf @ page 126 Well this sucked. I have no idea why I had high hopes for this book since it was terribly boring. I'm stumped with assignments at the moment so my free reading time really needs to be spent with a book I enjoy and right now I'm hating this book. I've been skim reading...

    3 stars might be too high... I had seen a lot of buzz around this book and I was pretty excited to finally get to it. Sadly, I was a bit disappointed. I liked Caro well enough. She's strong and sassy and can take care of herself. There is an interesting group of characters here ...

    I just cannot rate this! I have no idea how I would even decide the star of this book. When I read other reviewers saying it is hard to rate, I was like hmmm. Now I understand. The idea of the plot is very compelling but during some of the story I was like WTH, am I lost or not compreh...

    SO I TOTALLY COMPLETELY FULLY ENJOYED THAT. It's far tooearly for a full review, but I was in a mini slump and this just swooped in and saved me with its pirates and riverboats and bickering and fiesty-ness and fun-ness. That was just a good old fashioned GREAT FUN READ. ...

    you can read this review on my blog as well! Song of the Current was a book I didn't know I needed in my life until I read it. Considering it has been a while since I've read it, bear with me while I still try to comprehend my thoughts for it. The book itself was sort of a uniqu...

    Unique. Charming. Atmospheric. I'll admit it took me about 35-40% to be drawn into this one, but I'm so glad I stuck with it. I've never read another book like this. I loved how feisty the main character was and how the romance developed (and especially how it was treated in the end wh...

    Probably 2.5 stars This book was really just okay for me. There were some elements that I loved and found really intriguing. But I have to admit that the majority of the time I was bored or wasn't sure what the heck was going on as the lingo was a bit confusing for me. I'll have to ...

    17-year-old Caroline Oresteia has spent her life on her father?s wherry, carrying cargo up and down the rivers that cut through their country. She?s happy being a deck hand. Then her father is arrested, and Caro makes a desperate deal to smuggle a mysterious crate in order to make ...

    Song of the Current was such a surprisingly delightful read. This book pulled me in right from the beginning, and I didn't want to put the book down! There were some slower portions of this book, but it was entertaining as a whole. There were so many fun elements to this story. The...

    Wow. Seriously, wow. River gods and female pirates, sorry privateers, and hate to love romance that worked SO WELL. And enthusiastically consensual teen sex (fade to black) where the guy keeps checking as things get going! And a world where women are still at a disadvantage but several...

    Unique. Charming. Atmospheric. I'll admit it took me about 35-40% to be drawn into this one, but I'm so glad I stuck with it. I've never read another book like this. I loved how feisty the main character was and how the romance developed (and especially how it was treated in the end wh...

    17-year-old Caroline Oresteia has spent her life on her father?s wherry, carrying cargo up and down the rivers that cut through their country. She?s happy being a deck hand. Then her father is arrested, and Caro makes a desperate deal to smuggle a mysterious crate in order to make ...

    SO I TOTALLY COMPLETELY FULLY ENJOYED THAT. It's far tooearly for a full review, but I was in a mini slump and this just swooped in and saved me with its pirates and riverboats and bickering and fiesty-ness and fun-ness. That was just a good old fashioned GREAT FUN READ. ...

    Unique. Charming. Atmospheric. I'll admit it took me about 35-40% to be drawn into this one, but I'm so glad I stuck with it. I've never read another book like this. I loved how feisty the main character was and how the romance developed (and especially how it was treated in the end wh...

    Probably 2.5 stars This book was really just okay for me. There were some elements that I loved and found really intriguing. But I have to admit that the majority of the time I was bored or wasn't sure what the heck was going on as the lingo was a bit confusing for me. I'll have to ...

    17-year-old Caroline Oresteia has spent her life on her father?s wherry, carrying cargo up and down the rivers that cut through their country. She?s happy being a deck hand. Then her father is arrested, and Caro makes a desperate deal to smuggle a mysterious crate in order to make ...

    Song of the Current was such a surprisingly delightful read. This book pulled me in right from the beginning, and I didn't want to put the book down! There were some slower portions of this book, but it was entertaining as a whole. There were so many fun elements to this story. The...

    Unique. Charming. Atmospheric. I'll admit it took me about 35-40% to be drawn into this one, but I'm so glad I stuck with it. I've never read another book like this. I loved how feisty the main character was and how the romance developed (and especially how it was treated in the end wh...

    Probably 2.5 stars This book was really just okay for me. There were some elements that I loved and found really intriguing. But I have to admit that the majority of the time I was bored or wasn't sure what the heck was going on as the lingo was a bit confusing for me. I'll have to ...

    3 stars might be too high... I had seen a lot of buzz around this book and I was pretty excited to finally get to it. Sadly, I was a bit disappointed. I liked Caro well enough. She's strong and sassy and can take care of herself. There is an interesting group of characters here ...

    I just cannot rate this! I have no idea how I would even decide the star of this book. When I read other reviewers saying it is hard to rate, I was like hmmm. Now I understand. The idea of the plot is very compelling but during some of the story I was like WTH, am I lost or not compreh...

    SO I TOTALLY COMPLETELY FULLY ENJOYED THAT. It's far tooearly for a full review, but I was in a mini slump and this just swooped in and saved me with its pirates and riverboats and bickering and fiesty-ness and fun-ness. That was just a good old fashioned GREAT FUN READ. ...

    17-year-old Caroline Oresteia has spent her life on her father?s wherry, carrying cargo up and down the rivers that cut through their country. She?s happy being a deck hand. Then her father is arrested, and Caro makes a desperate deal to smuggle a mysterious crate in order to make ...

    Song of the Current was such a surprisingly delightful read. This book pulled me in right from the beginning, and I didn't want to put the book down! There were some slower portions of this book, but it was entertaining as a whole. There were so many fun elements to this story. The...
