Can’t Wait Wednesday: 20 June 2018
Can’t Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Wishful Endings and spotlights upcoming releases.
Sea Witch – Sarah Henning
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.
Why I Can’t Wait:
2018 is definitely the year for The Little Mermaid retellings and I’m loving it. The cover for this hooked me immediately and I’ve heard some really great reviews so I can’t wait to finally read this one. Plus it’s told from the perspective of the villainess which sounds amazing.
