Reading Wolf Just watched your TBR for Feb. and I wanted to suggest this book for FTF. I enjoyed it a lot especially the way the author told the story from each girl's prospective. It is definitely one of the better Little Mermaid retellings I have read.

message 2: by Misty (new) - added it

Misty I do want to read this one, but I don't own it (yet). I mentioned in the video that Bonnie recommended Godmother to me, and it was actually as a result of this book - she contributed an interview last year with Carolyn, who was promoting this at the time, and it sounded excellent. Plus Carolyn just seemed kind of awesome.

And I don't know that I've ever actually read a full-length retelling of TLM. And I don't know how I'd feel about one, honestly. I mean, it's a really negative story in actuality (which most people don't know, because they don't know it's anything outside of a Disney tale), and part of me would want a retelling to be true to that side, and part of me wants the LM to have her happy ending...
