About SamiK

I'm a Library Director for a small(ish) Texas town with a desire to share my love of books and the library with my community.

Currently, I am working towards my MLS (Master of Library Science) from Texas Woman's University (my alma mater!).

When I'm not treading through a pile a school work and work work, I make precious memories with both my handsome men at home. Whether we are playing with the sand between our toes, making a campfire, or just taking in a movie at home, every moment is unique.

Review: The Accidental Siren

Have I got a treat for you! If you didn't know already, I'm a huge fan of Jake Vander Ark's Lighthouse Nights. See my review here. Sooooo, when he contacted me about reviewing The Accidental Siren for him, of course I jumped on the opportunity! Plus, I have the second ever published copy!!! :) Okay, okay, I won't keep you waiting.

(from Goodreads)
Mara Lynn is the most beautiful girl in the world. James Parker is the ordinary boy who discovers her power.

The Accidental Siren depicts the joys and consequences of young love as Mara and James meet, shoot a movie, fend off bullies, and explore the potential of infinite beauty.
My thoughts:
Honestly, I didn't find it as good as Lighthouse Nights, but I absolutely enjoyed the story of James and Mara from beginning to end. It's kind of like reading the book and then watching the movie expecting it to live up to the book. The details of the story are released at precisely the right moment, and you'll quickly fall in love with Jake's style of writing. Oh, and his characters are always so relatable. I promise if you pick this up you will not be disappointed!


I've been behind this week due to medical issues with my mom, so hopefully I will get caught up this weekend. I have two reviews just waiting to be posted!
