Hello fellow bookaddicts. I almost forgot, but here I am back for another Waiting on Wednesday which is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating. A similar meme, Can’t-Wait Wednesday, is hosted by Tressa over at Wishful Endings. If you’d like to participate in either one, don’t forget to link back to these lovely ladies and add your links in their posts.
My pick for this week’s “can’t wait to read” is
Expected publication: July 31st 2018 by Katherine Tegen Books
Hardcover 368 pages
Genre(s): Young Adult, Fantasy, Retellings, Mermaids, Mythology
Everyone knows what happens in the end.
A mermaid, a prince, a true love’s kiss.
But before that young siren’s tale, there were three friends.
One feared, one royal, and one already dead.
Ever since her best friend, Anna, drowned, Evie has been an outcast in her small fishing town. A freak. A curse. A witch.
A girl with an uncanny resemblance to Anna appears offshore and, though the girl denies it, Evie is convinced that her best friend actually survived. That her own magic wasn’t so powerless after all. And, as the two girls catch the eyes—and hearts—of two charming princes, Evie believes that she might finally have a chance at her own happily ever after.
But her new friend has secrets of her own. She can’t stay in Havnestad, or on two legs, unless Evie finds a way to help her. Now Evie will do anything to save her friend’s humanity, along with her prince’s heart—harnessing the power of her magic, her ocean, and her love until she discovers, too late, the truth of her bargain.
The rise of Hans Christian Andersen’s iconic villainess is a heart-wrenching story of friendship, betrayal, and a girl pushed beyond her limits—to become a monster.
First of all, that book cover is absolutely mesmerizing… It’s seriously calling to me so of course I had to add this on my TBR. BUT… after reading the synopsis, I’m honestly super excited to read this retelling and it’s from Ursula’s POV!! Sounds like there’ll be some epic FEELS and heartbreak and I just can’t wait!! Probably shouldn’t request this on Netgalley since I still have so many ARCS to read…but I’m most definitely considering it…I’m trying so hard not to do it cause I really need to be good and not request anymore….it’s just this really sounds so AMAZING!!!
So far I haven’t requested…but who knows what will happen later, tomorrow, or next week.
