|Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine. |
This event highlights our most-wanted upcoming releases!
Okay, so I'm featuring two modern day contemporary novels that have threads of The Little Mermaid running through them.
So...like mermaids or hate 'em, you may enjoy these two novels!
Release Date: June 2, 2014
Publisher: Vintage // Random House
I'm so anxious to finally read Kate Forsyth this fall when BITTER GREENS comes to the USA. It's really hard getting books from Australia!
Kate is awesome, and I always love working with her or talking to her online.
I think it's so cool that the main character in this book is inspired by The Little Mermaid, "Like the mermaid in the fairytale her Spanish grandmother once told her, Sara imagines she is Dancing on Knives, unable to speak. "
I want to read this and really hope it comes State-Side!
Title: THE SUMMER OF CHASING MERMAIDS
Author: Sarah Ockler
Release Date: June 2015
Publisher: Simon Pulse
Like DANCING ON KNIVES, this one is inspired by The Little Mermaid (Even more so!).
The summary reminds me a bit of Alyssa Sheinmel's SECOND STAR, which takes the magic out of Peter Pan and sets the story in a contemporary world, only this time, the contemporary world is mimicking The Little Mermaid. Oh, you know I want to read this!!!!
What are you anxiously waiting for this Wednesday?
