Waiting on Wednesday (16)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine, where we showcase the books that we can't wait to be released.

This week:

Forgive My Fins by Tera Lynn Childs
Release Date: June 1st 2010
Synopsis from Goodreads:
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.

I think that this book sounds like the perfect summer read! I mean, mermaids! What's not to love? And that cover is so cute! I wish that I could wear her makeup on a daily basis =P


  1. Not read a mermaid book, and this one sounds cool. Might have to give it a try.

  2. I'm definitely waiting on this one too. And from the reviews I've already read, I heard it was amazing. I can't wait :D

  3. I love any book with mermaids too! I can't wait for this one!

  4. Cute book! It sounds like a great summer read for sure.

  5. The cover of this one sounds so cool!

  6. I agree with you, this book seems like the perfect summer read! I haven't read any YA mermaid books yet so this will be something new for me. Great pick!

  7. This does look fantastic. I've barely read any mermaid-themed books, but I find them fascinating so I'll definitely be looking out for this. And I totally agree, it'd make a perfect summer read.
