Good morning! Happy Monday, I suppose. Yay, I’m so happy it’s Monday -_-
Goodreads Monday is a weekly meme that was started by @Lauren’s Page Turners. The meme is pretty easy to follow, to participate simply choose a random book from your TBR and explain why you want to read it!
I used a randomizer to pick a book for me because I’m awful with decisions.
This week’s pick is
The Surface Breaks by Louise O’Neill
Deep beneath the sea, off the cold Irish coast, Gaia is a young mermaid who dreams of freedom from her controlling father. On her first swim to the surface, she is drawn towards a human boy. She longs to join his carefree world, but how much will she have to sacrifice? What will it take for the little mermaid to find her voice? Hans Christian Andersen’s original fairy tale is re-imagined through a searing feminist lens, with the stunning, scalpel-sharp writing and world building that has won Louise her legions of devoted fans. A book with the darkest of undercurrents, full of rage and rallying cries: storytelling at its most spellbinding.
Why I Want To Read It:
I like pretty things and this cover is beyond pretty, just LOOK AT IT. Also, you can never have too many retellings especially about The Little Mermaid.
Why Haven’t I Read It Yet
I don’t have the time lmao okay that’s a lie, I do but I have so many books to read! I will read it soon I promise.
What’s on your TBR?
