This was a good follow up that focuses on the story of Ursula and Ariel and what made the sea witch such a villain. I liked how it still had Circe and her odd sisters and connected to the beast.

If you‘ve seen The Little Mermaid, then you already know Ursula‘s story. Not much about it is expanded here, although you do get some backstory that is absent from the film. Poor Unfortunate Soul reveals her familial connection to Ariel, her deep rooted hatred for Triton, and why she has assumed her octopus form.
This was my least favorite so far, regardless it's still a fun read. Ursala's back story is heart wrenching, full of sadness and turmoil and it really shows how hate can build and become fuel for spite and heartlessness. Odd Sisters, though they were much less vindictive in this one. I missed that. The only thing I don't like is tying in the next book randomly to hook you. Regardless, #teamnosleep for #poorunfortunatesouls
This is also coming out in September. 🐍
I need this one!
Poor Unfortunate Soul was a nice, quick read. I enjoyed it, but not as much as I thought I would. Maybe if I had realized sooner that it was the third in a series that was actually entwined with the previous books, I would‘ve enjoyed it more. Now I have the problem of too many choices in what I read next.... #shelfie #books #toomanychoices #whatdoireadnext #help
Ok, I caved. I'm really tired but I NEEDED to open one of my swaps. So I chose the #allhallowsreadswap package from the awesome @TheReadingMermaid
Thanks so much! I've been wanting the tagged book. I may have eaten some candy in 🛌 (now I'm probably too wired to go to sleep). Thanks so much and Happy Halloween! 🎃👻😈👹👺💀🤡🕷🦈🦇🕸🍎
I‘m in the middle of a few books right now and I started one of the Disney Villians books this morning — Poor Unfortunate Souls: The Tale of the Sea Witch. I‘ve always been a fan of the little mermaid fairytale and the Disney retelling so I obviously had to try this one first. I‘m surprised actually how enjoyable it is and I may have to read them all after all. #bookaddict #booklover #bookblog
I realllllly enjoyed this book. This is Ursula‘s side of the story of The Little Mermaid and it was a lot of fun. I liked how other Disney evil queens were mentioned and incorporated into the story. Great story!
After reading this book, I was “WOW”. I have been playing “Poor Unfortunate Souls” while reading it XD. All in all, I do enjoy it especially there were parts that mentioned the “The Little Mermaid & Beauty and The Beast”. Also, some minor that based on Ursula‘s past. I recommend you guys reading it. I‘m looking forward to read the whole series from the author: Miss Serena Valentino.
Finished my anime manga break, Now it‘s time to read this book. Any thoughts? (No spoilers! Please and Thank you)
I love Disney stories. With this version, I think I needed more depth. I wanted more history between Ursula and Triton. I wanted more details of what she was doing when Ariel was with Eric. I liked the book, but it left me wanting more.
I love the cover though. I wish the title was more visible!
Last review of the night! I had to take advantage of having signal, lol. I wanted so badly to like this book, but if the book is the story through Ursula's point-of-view, shouldn't the focus be her? I'm really disappointed with this one... iBook read.
I got my gorgeous @book_keeperx yesterday & I'm so excited to show it off! I love that it looks so lovely with my books, but also looks great with some of my husband's as well.
A quick and interesting take on some of Ursula's back story as well as how all the magical kingdoms are intertwined. Simple and different. It could have been more in depth, but it was more of a lighthearted read without many layers. I definitely plan to read the next one.
I'm lost for words! This one is my favourite so far and there were so many hints with what book could be next! I love this series so much and hope it continues, I'm in such a book hangover I don't think I can wait for the next book.
