It’s Monday and another ARCstravaganza post! I got away from doing these posts for a bit – mainly because I’ve had a couple of busy weeks. But, I’ve also been behind in writing/creating posts because I’ve really been in the reading mood lately. I’m excited to talk about ARCs again!
It’s time to get back into posting these weekly meme’s regularly and I’m excited to showcase some more fun ARCs that I’ve been lucky enough to receive from publishers.
For those unfamiliar, ARCstravaganza was a weekly meme created by Krysti at YA and Wine and was hosted by her, and Sarah at The Clever Reader. Due to personal reasons they had to let it go and it is now hosted by Flavia at Flavia the Bibliophile. This meme specifically allows book bloggers to showcase and discuss ARC’s that they have been sent.
Sea Witch by Sarah Henning
Publisher: Katharine Tegen Books | Release: July 31st, 2018
A few months ago, I was able to visit the Harper Collins office to hear about upcoming releases. I was really excited once they showed Sea Witch. It looks like it will be an interesting retelling of the Little Mermaid. And, as someone obsessed with all things Disney, I’m sure I’ll love it!
Everyone knows what happens in the end.
A mermaid, a prince, a true love’s kiss.
But before that young siren’s tale, there were three friends.
One feared, one royal, and one already dead.
Ever since her best friend, Anna, drowned, Evie has been an outcast in her small fishing town. A freak. A curse. A witch.
A girl with an uncanny resemblance to Anna appears offshore and, though the girl denies it, Evie is convinced that her best friend actually survived. That her own magic wasn’t so powerless after all. And, as the two girls catch the eyes—and hearts—of two charming princes, Evie believes that she might finally have a chance at her own happily ever after.
But her new friend has secrets of her own. She can’t stay in Havnestad, or on two legs, unless Evie finds a way to help her. Now Evie will do anything to save her friend’s humanity, along with her prince’s heart—harnessing the power of her magic, her ocean, and her love until she discovers, too late, the truth of her bargain.
The rise of Hans Christian Andersen’s iconic villainess is a heart-wrenching story of friendship, betrayal, and a girl pushed beyond her limits—to become a monster.
