The Mermaid’s Sister

The Mermaid's Sister via Besotted Blog iI just finished reading The Mermaid’s Sister, a lovely little book (I read it in one night), it’s targeted for YA, but it seems almost everything is these days. I have to admit I picked it up because of the cover and if you get a chance to read the book you will note how well illustrated it is, it truly depicts the story so well. The illustrations are by M.S. Corley, I found on his blog the alternate concepts he created for the book (a treat to get a peek behind the scenes). I am trying desperately to fill the void that the Night Circus left, I so want more of that wildly creative world in my reading life, it was one of the books that a lot of you had said was your favorite and I can absolutely see why. So my friends, especially those that recommend the Night Circus what should I read next?

And of course we have a winner to announce!  And the winner is…Chelsea Tschanen! Congrats Chelsea, and even though these are always random picks, Michelle and I both wanted to give a thumbs up to wanting to be Madonna’s backup dancer.

  1. Thanks for this recommendation! I too loved the Night Circus and desperately wanted more of it! Here’s a few that sorta scratch that itch and are equally good in their own magicality:
    – Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell is perhaps one of my all-time favorite books. And ALL of Susanna Clarke’s books are great! And the BBC miniseries of Jonathan Strange is AWESOME.
    – Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore by Robin Sloan – totally fun, reads fast
    – The Magicians and its trilogy by Lev Grossman – a little more Harry Potter-ish, though more cynical/mature, not AS fun but still fun
    – The Thinking Woman’s Guide to Real Magic by Emily Croy Barker – full on magical world/fairy tale type
