Hey loves! Top Ten Tuesday is a book blog meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl! This week’s prompt is Freebie. For this week, I was thinking about the beach, since being summer and all, I’ve been going pretty frequently. And the other day at the beach I was just singing little mermaid songs and wishing I was Ariel, so I figured, why not do mermaid books?
1. Daughter of the Siren Queen
I love this duology! Pirates and sirens–amazing! Who wouldn’t want to be daughter of a siren queen?
2. To Kill A Kingdom
I love this darker grittier mermaid book. I mean, isn’t any book that starts with a girl ripping out and burying a heart bound to be good?
3. Sea Witch
Enough of the mermaid, I really enjoyed this retelling of the evil sea witch! It was so cool to see what drove her to that point.
4. The Wicked King
Obviously not a mermaid book, but a significant part of it takes place underwater with mermaids, so it definitely belongs on this list! This book is incredible!
This was one of the first upper YA series I loved, and I remember being so shocked by how gritty the sirens were–pulling hearts and ripping open bodies and all. And I absolutely loved them!
6. Forgive My Fins
This was I think the first YA mermaid books I ever read? I loved reading about a mermaid princess (who loves sushi by the way)!
7. The Sweetest Kind of Fate
This is more younger YA, and not very well known, but I definitely loved it! I loved the idea of witches and sirens, and pulling a reverse little mermaid and giving up legs for a fin!
8. Selkie Girl
I barely remember this book, I read it so long ago, but I remember loving the idea of a selkie–not a mermaid, but a girl who can literally put on and take off a seal skin!
9. The Siren
Another guilty pleasure book–I know she doesn’t write good books but I’m such trash for Kiera Cass! As if the cover enough wasn’t enough to fall in love.
10. Deep Blue
I remember this was a bit boring, but I still enjoyed reading about royal mermaids!
