Trailer Tuesday: Mesmerizing Mermaids


Title: Real Mermaids Don’t Wear Toe Rings
Author: Helene Boudreau
Publisher: Sourcebooks
Publication Date: 9 Feb 2011

Synopsis: From Amazon

It's hard being a pre-teen girl; it's even harder when you find out you're a mermaid!
Fourteen-year-old Jade feels like a freak-of-nature when she finally gets her first period while trying on an XL tankini at the mall. It gets worse when she runs into handsome Luke Martin in the feminine products aisle while her dad Googles 'menstruation' on his Blackberry. But 'freak-of-nature' takes on a whole new meaning when raging hormones bring on another metamorphosis -- complete with scales and a tail. When Jade learns she's inherited her mermaid tendencies from her late mother, it raises the question: if Mom was a mermaid, how did she drown?

There wasn't an official trailer for this book but I wanted to include it as I really want to read this book. It looks such fun. So please remember that this is a fan made trailer.

Title: The Mermaid’s Mirror
Author: LK Madigan
Publisher: Graphia Books
Publication Date: 17 Jan 2012

Synopsis: From GoodReads

Lena has lived her whole life near the beach — walking for miles up and down the shore and breathing the salty air, swimming in the cold water, and watching the surfers rule the waves — the problem is, she’s spent her whole life just watching.

As her sixteenth birthday approaches, Lena vows she will no longer watch from the sand: she will learn to surf.
But her father — a former surfer himself — refuses to allow her to take lessons. After his near drowning years ago, he can’t bear to let Lena take up the risky sport.
Yet something keeps drawing Lena to the water . . . an ancient, powerful magic. And one morning Lena catches sight of this magic: a beautiful woman — with a silvery tail.
Now nothing can stop Lena from seeking the mermaid, not even the dangerous waves at Magic Crescent Cove.

And soon . . . what she sees in the mermaid’s mirror will change her life forever.

How desperate am I to read this. The answer is VERY. Brilliant review at My Favourite Books check it out HERE

Title: Between the Sea and Sky
Author: Jaclyn Dolamore
Publisher: Bloomsbury Publishing PLC
Publication Date: 25 Oct 2011

Synopsis: From GoodReads

For as long as Esmerine can remember, she has longed to join her older sister, Dosinia, as a siren—the highest calling a mermaid can have. When Dosinia runs away to the mainland, Esmerine is sent to retrieve her. Using magic to transform her tail into legs, she makes her way unsteadily to the capital city. There she comes upon a friend she hasn't seen since childhood—a dashing young man named Alandare, who belongs to a winged race of people. As Esmerine and Alandare band together to search for Dosinia, they rekindle a friendship . . . and ignite the emotions for a love so great, it cannot be bound by sea, land, or air.

No trailer available for this one YET - I am hoping there will be but I wanted to include it because it looks so gorgeous.

Title: Mermaid
Author: Carolyn Turgeon
Publisher: Headline Review
Publication Date: 3 Mar 2011

Synopsis: From GoodReads

The story of two very different women, one mortal, one mermaid, and the clash between worlds best kept apart... It is a cold day at the end of the world when a young woman, a princess in hiding, looks out across a Northern sea and sees something she could not have seen. It can't be. It looks like a mermaid's tail. And, as she looks more closely, she sees that the mermaid is dragging a drowning sailor in her arms.
Because, only hours before, another princess, the daughter of the sea queen, has decided to risk everything and take a look at the world above the sea: the world of mortals. And there she finds a storm, a shipwreck, a sailor, and sets in train events which will change both women's worlds forever.

I have all of these lovely books on my personal wish-list - there covers call to me like a siren song lol. I hope you are as mesmerized as I am [ : D ]

  1. There was me thinking you would have included the other two mermaid books out now too. Forgive My Fins and the Bloomsbury one.

    I feel like I should be swimming over to this post today.

    The Mermaid's Mirror - yay!
