Last of this year's witchy reads. I checked out Sea Witch because of the cover but stayed for the story. 🧞‍♀️🧙‍♀️🎃

While I enjoyed this book and the authors writing, I did think the story line was a bit slow and also very predictable. I will probably continue with the series but only because I want t know how its continued because I felt like this could be a stand alone book

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I really loved this story. It was beautifully written with magic and tragedy at its core along with the hope of a young girl who, despite circumstance‘s cruel demand, had yet to turn bitter.

Hi guys! I'm in reading slump and I hate that. I have a few books on my kindle from my summer #tbr but I probably won't read them until end of the year. I really want to read Sea Witch. Have you already read it? Did you like it?

I was not expecting that ending! Shit got real, and changed what was a fairly pleasant but simple tale into an exciting retelling!

There's one fairytale retelling that I can never pass up, Ursula's origin story. I've no idea why. Maybe I just like a villainess. This story was fine. I would've liked to see her using her powers more or wrecking vengeance on the people who tried to kill her. It was a nice read, but I'll most likely have forgotten it in a year.

Shley9225 There is a sequel too, just so you know. Probably has more vengeance and power-using in that one 4mo

Book 49 of the year, finished June 27, audio

An interesting origin story for The Little Mermaid. Seems to go off of the original story rather than the Disney version. Probably won't reread, but it was enjoyable.

I had a hard time getting into this novel. The third-person narration of certain chapters can be confusing - I mixed Iker and Nik‘s POVs at least once. The characters sometimes show immaturity in ridiculous ways. I would have liked a darker tone, as I could not quite relate to the tragic events of the past or those to come: I could not feel Evie‘s emotions, be it pain or joy, for most of the book. It was a bland read. (But look at that cover! ❤️)

Shley9225 One of my favourite covers ever. The eyes! They glow!! 6mo
ulrichyumiodd @Shley9225 I totally judged the book by its cover and expected it to be a new favorite, haha. (edited) 6mo
Shley9225 @ulrichyumiodd So will you be reading the sequel when it comes out? 6mo
ulrichyumiodd @Shley9225 I doubt I will. Perhaps if I find it at a good price, just by curiosity. In the end, it wasn‘t a book for me, despite the gorgeous cover. 6mo

Fairytale retellings are hit or miss, but for me this one is a BIG HIT. The story pulled me in from the first sentence and kept me there until the very end. I know that there is a sequel coming but I don‘t think it‘s needed, this book was perfect as a stand-alone. These aren‘t the mermaids of your childhood!

I am a sucker for anything to do with mermaids or water. And this cover is so gorgeous, so I naturally had to get this book. I really enjoyed the story although I wanted a bit more overall from it. More depth, more ambience and more magic. That said, I still really liked the story and the characters. I'm curious to see where the second book will go as this felt like a standalone to me.

I really enjoyed this retelling :) Sometimes it‘s hard to go into a novel you know is going to end sad (and boy did this one pull on the heartstrings at the very end) but I absolutely loved it. And also, the physical cover for this book is absolutely gorgeous. Her purple eyes absolutely GLOW and I‘m sorry but it‘s totally worth it to read this just so you can look at that every day. Great debut.

This one had some redeeming qualities, but not a lot. I liked Evie a fair amount, and I also liked her relationships with both the boys. I also thought the flashbacks were used effectively. I wasn't a fan of the way she used the setting - it was there, and it was an important part of the story, but it didn't feel magical at all. Most of the townspeople were annoying. I also didn't like the epilogue and the way it resolved. #audiobook via #scribd

I went into this book not knowing it was the origin story for the sea witch from the little mermaid, I really didn't look at the cover, I was just looking for an ocean story. This book took my breath away and shook me up. I wasn't prepared for a sad ended and it hit me hard.

Shley9225 Omg right that ending was killer I was SO SAD 😭😭😭 10mo

Between a 3 & 4 star review. This was a fun read. I don‘t think the world building was phenomenal & characters could have been flushed out a bit more & sometimes felt cliched. BUT, the ending was shockingly spectacular. I liked the dark twists & certain parts left me with my jaw open. I love when authors surprise me. If you like YA & don‘t mind common YA flaws + enjoy fairy tale retellings then I think you‘d enjoy this book!

I found this book a bit slow to start.
I did enjoy it. The story mainly tells the story of the Sea Witch from The Little Mermaid before she became the sea witch and the events that turn her into the sea witch.
If you like retellings do give this a try.

A retelling of the little mermaid. Some cool magic and a little bit of an explanation. Mostly I liked it. But toward the last quarter of the book there was a bit of a twist that made no sense with the plot and information I already had.

A retelling of The Little Mermaid, this doesn't focus on the Ariel character but rather on Ursula, the Sea Witch. I've read a few retellings before but I really really enjoyed this one because it felt more like an original legend. Like something that exists before Disney gets its hands on it. If you enjoyed the book Wicked, this may be right up your alley. Definitely pick this up if you can.

RaimeyGallant I love the premise. 1y

High hopes dashed on this hot mess. I was confused often. The writing style was borderline mediocre, character development flat, pacing unbalanced, and littered with useless details. Flawed to the point of an eminent trashing, and I do not enjoy trashing books. World building was almost OK. I struggled to finish and wish I hadn't.
SO MUCH POTENTIAL!

Fun reimagining of the Little Mermaid. Some how added a Little Mermaid retelling and Ursula origin story along with being fairly original.

If you‘re a fan of retellings, definitely give this one a read!
