Surface Breaks
Surface Breaks: A Reimagining of the Little Mermaid | Louise O'Neill
3 posts | 6 read | 4 to read
Deep beneath the sea, off the cold Irish coast, Gaia is a young mermaid who dreams of freedom from her controlling father. On her first swim to the surface, she is drawn towards a human boy. She longs to join his carefree world, but how much will she have to sacrifice? What will it take for the little mermaid to find her voice? Hans Christian Andersen's original fairy tale is reimagined through a searing feminist lens, with the stunning, scalpel-sharp writing and world building that has won Louise her legions of devoted fans. A book with the darkest of undercurrents, full of rage and rallying cries: story-telling at its most spellbinding.

I was really excited to read this one since I love fairy tale retellings but I could not get into it. I read about 70 pages and skimmed a bit more but eventually gave up on it. What a gorgeous book design, though. #februaryreads #ya

Library haul. I‘m a sucker for fairy tale retellings so I can‘t wait to read this.
