Hours 5 and 6 of #Deweys24HourReadathon had me listening to the tagged audiobook while doing some audiopuzzling and taking a walk around town, including a stop at the cute library. So glad someone told me to listen to this before starting Into the Drowning Deep and that it was available on Hoopla!

So glad I read this! I loved Into The Drowning Deep and wanted to read Grant's novella that came before it. Admittedly I love ITDD a bit more because of the depth (hah!) of the story and characters, but if you're not willing to commit to 450 pgs this is a solid alternative option. Or if you love the idea of killer mermaids then read both 😉 #screamathon

Current kindle read finished tonight. It was a quick read since it‘s basically a novella. Interesting topic - mermaid horror - that has intrigued me enough to read the main book in the series, Into the Drowning Deep. 3.5⭐️ // #fiction #horror #fantasy #novella #mermaidhorror

This was a crazy little novella. I wasn't sure what to expect. Sometimes I go into things blind based on the author or recommendations and this was an example of that. This was wild. A documentary on mermaids turns out to be more than anyone expected. The team was all set to create a hoax, but got the surprise of their life. I'm definitely going to read the follow-up, Into the Drowning Deep.

A great little prequel to one of my favourite mermaid horror books from last year 🧜‍♀️

BF found me a new game to try out and so far, it's amusing as hell so it looks like I'm spending the rest of the night #audiogaming and trying to forget that I go back to work on Monday 😑

Whether or not you read Into the Drowning Deep first, you know right off the bat that everyone is going to die, but I still found myself on the edge of my seat waiting to see how that all went down. I would have liked the opportunity to know these characters a little better and to spend a little more time witnessing these horrors on the sea, but for what this little novella is, it's great. Check out this relevant library bookmark too! 🐙🧜‍♀️

Well this was a fun, quick read. As the prequel to Into the Drowning Deep, it provides the events of the Atargatis‘s fateful voyage to the Mariana Trench.

The audiobook narrator did a pretty decent job, but sometimes she would inexplicably slow down when she was reading ASL dialogue. Weird.

I love Mira Grant/Seanan McGuire‘s books. And this was 3 hours well spent.

Prequel to Into the Drowning Deep, that could be read first without any loss of storyline. Mermaids are real, and they are Apex predators that will eat your face! Amazingly plausible horror novella. Too much fun! Highly recommend if it sounds like your thing.

Literary_Siren I enjoyed this more than I did Into the Drowning Deep. After reading Rolling in the Deep the actual novel was redundant. 2y
FlowerFairy Read Into the Drowning Deep and liked it very much. Got Rolling in the Deep as an audiobook but couldn‘t get into it due to not caring for the voice actor. Will read it instead. 2y
Exbrarian @Literary_Siren I think the author meant for Rolling in the Deep to be read second. Only of interest to those who were left wanting more - like me. 2y
Exbrarian @FlowerFairy I dislike most audiobooks. I have a few, but I just don't like listening to very many people. 2y
FlowerFairy I have a long work commute so listen to audiobooks to occupy the time. But if I do t care for the voice actor, I can‘t move past that to get into the story. 2y

Mermurder time again! An entertainment company sends out a “documentary” crew to prove the existence of mermaids, even if they have to bring their own.

Now, usually, I hate prequels. Knowing where the characters end up, there‘s only so much dramatic irony I can handle in a story. This is one of the few exceptions that answers questions I had and ones I didn‘t know I had, as well as providing me with interesting/diverse characters. 🌕🌕🌕🌕🌑

Killer mermaids for the win. I listened to this after already having listened to Into the Drowning Deep...so I knew the deal with the mermaids but it was still ultimately a diabolical foray into the deep waters of the Mariana Trench. The characters are rather unlikeable, so I wasn't sad to see them come to their dastardly end (not really a spoiler).

This #novella is the best, most scientifically realistic portrayal of “mermaids“ I've ever seen, to the point that I found myself thinking multiple times while reading it, “I can't believe mermaids are real and want to kill us.“ I also loved the diversity of the cast; the short but imposing female captain, her deaf first mate, and the tetchy gay scientist couple. Top notch stuff. #mermaids #thrillers #horror

I‘ve been listening to The Lightbringer Series by Brent Weeks on Audible but I‘ve just finished The Blood Mirror. I have a week until the next book comes out so I guess now is a perfect time to listen to some novellas that I‘ve been hoarding on Audible. I really enjoyed Into the Drowning Deep. So far, this prequel is fine.

Finished Rolling in the Deep and started Into the Drowning Deep in audio for my drives to and from PA.
I've read both books already, but am really enjoying them now in audio. However, the narrator for each book pronounced the ship's name "Atargatis" differently. It's a bit annoying.

This has been a very frustrating couple of weeks for me, reading wise. Reading slumps suck.
Mira Grant's Newflesh series is my favorite series of all-time, but I haven't liked anything else I've tried by her (as Grant or as Seanan McGuire). But, this sounds unique and it's a novella. Hopefully it will not disappoint.

So I just read the prequel, a quick novella, to the book for my #HorrorPostalBookClub, just last night: ‘Rolling In The Deep‘ by #MiraGrant! My dastardly group of readers helped narrow down my choices, and we are picking killer mermaids. ‘Rolling in The Deep‘ gives you a little ‘bloody‘ taste of what is to come in ‘Into The Drowning Deep‘, and gives some background to the novel. Plus I had to show everyone the KILLER journal I‘ve picked out! 💀

Seanan McGuire is my favorite author. She's a queer woman who strives to reflect real world people in her stories. Every Heart a Doorway and Down Among the Sticks and Bones feature asexual, trans* and lesbian characters. Rolling in the Deep (written as her horror alter ego Mira Grant) gives you dialogue in ASL and people with disabilities. The October Daye series is filled with strong women of all races and identities. #24in48 #ownvoices

Very quick read that I loved! Really like Mira Grant's Newsflesh series so when this floated by my radar I snapped it up. It is not great literature but it is fun, the characters actually were just as I imagined a documentary crew of filmmakers and scientists would be. I am looking forward to the next installment in November! And for the record: this is just pure fun so don't expect a Nobel prize winner! #litsypartyofone

I was able to start and finish this short, creepy book today (in between a lot of cleaning and organizing). This book has you thinking about where the mythology of mermaids did come from, everything from "pretty girls with fins" to sirens that lure men to their death. Either way, the depths of the ocean can be a scary and unknown thing - most likely with many things with sharp, point teeth.

This book. This book made me very glad that my mattress has no gap between it and the floor (and yet I still didn't let my legs hang off the edge while I read this, surrounded by land, with no major body of water for miles and miles.) I love Mira Grant. I have read and will read anything she puts out. This was a little scarier (to me) than her other books, but I loved it.
