Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.



My first WoW post, but I learned about a new book this week that I'm eagerly waiting for. I was thinking about my favourite books of last year and Jaclyn Dolamore's Magic Under Glass was one of them. I decided to see whether or not she had any new books coming out and lucky for me, she does:


Between the Sea and the Sky by Jaclyn Dolamore


For as long as Esmerine can remember, she has longed to join her older sister, Dosinia, as a siren—the highest calling a mermaid can have. When Dosinia runs away to the mainland, Esmerine is sent to retrieve her. Using magic to transform her tail into legs, she makes her way unsteadily to the capital city. There she comes upon a friend she hasn't seen since childhood—a dashing young man named Alandare, who belongs to a winged race of people. As Esmerine and Alandare band together to search for Dosinia, they rekindle a friendship . . . and ignite the emotions for a love so great, it cannot be bound by sea, land, or air.



WoW because: I have a weakness for mermaid tales and the mythology of this one sounds really interesting and this book should tide me over until Dolamore releases Magic Under Stone.

  4. Although no a huge fan of mermaids, this does sound intriguingly different than many of the mermaid summaries I have read lately. Great pick!
