Waiting on Wednesday (7)

I think I should rename it Waiting on Sunday, because I never have time on Wednesdays to blog. Luckily though, Easter holidays start next week although I'll be revising for most of them :(.

Forgive my Fins by Tera Lynn Childs

Lily Sanderson has a secret, and it’s not that she has a huge crush on gorgeous swimming god Brody Bennett, who makes her heart beat flipper-fast. Unrequited love is hard enough when you’re a normal teenage girl, but when you’re half human, half mermaid like Lily, there’s no such thing as a simple crush.

Lily’s mermaid identity is a secret that can’t get out, since she’s not just any mermaid – she’s a Thalassinian princess. When Lily found out three years ago that her mother was actually a human, she finally realized why she didn’t feel quite at home in Thalassinia, and she’s been living on land and going to Seaview high school ever since, hoping to find where she truly belongs. Sure, land has its problems – like her obnoxious, biker boy neighbor Quince Fletcher – but it has that one major perk – Brody. The problem is, mermaids aren’t really the casual dating type – when they “bond,” it’s for life.

When Lily’s attempt to win Brody’s love leads to a tsunami-sized case of mistaken identity, she is in for a tidal wave of relationship drama, and she finds out, quick as a tailfin flick, that happily-ever-after never sails quite as smoothly as you planned.

This looks really interesting because it's about mermaids! I can't really recall seeing any previous YA books previous about mermaids. Also, the cover's really pretty. The romance aspect seems a little predictable (the gorgeous jock and the 'obnoxious, biker boy neighbour'- I think it's a bit obvious who she'll end up with) but fun anyway.


  1. This book is highly anticipated :D

  2. I really want to read this too!

    If you're interested in books about mermaids, I read 'Sea Change' by Aimee Friedman last year and it's along those lines.
