Everyone knows what happens in the end. A mermaid, a prince, a true love’s kiss. But before that young siren’s tale, there were three friends. One feared, one royal, and one already dead.
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.
Wow, August went by fast. I’m not even sure why. I think it’s because I had to do so much for university as I tried to get ahead before I start work experience in September. I don’t think I’m going to get much reading done in September, yikes. I typically read over ten books so I’m a little nervous. But, that is not this month.
I didn’t do a lot throughout August. I did multiple university assignments, started walking my dog every day, my arthritis medication finally started to work. I didn’t do anything socially, so it was a tad bit of a boring month in terms of a social life.
My reading month was all over the place though. I read some books I loved and I read some books I hated. I had some of my most anticipated releases let me down and I had some shock books that I absolutely loved. I read way more books than I even thought I would this month as well.
Over August I read 26 books and 7,929 pages. I find the page count interesting, so I’m going to start adding it to my wrap-ups!
A lot of my reviews I have written for my August reads haven’t been published yet. I scheduled all my posts for September, which are mostly these reviews. I hope you all stick around to read them!
