Fierce, seductive mermaid Syrenka falls in love with Ezra, a young naturalist. When she abandons her life underwater for a chance at happiness on land, she is unaware that this decision comes with horrific and deadly consequences. Almost one hundred forty years later, seventeen-year-old Hester meets a mysterious stranger named Ezra and feels overwhelmingly, inexplicably drawn to him. 

For generations, love has resulted in death for the women in her family. Is it an undiagnosed genetic defect . . . or a curse? With Ezra’s help, Hester investigates her family’s strange, sad history. The answers she seeks are waiting in the graveyard, the crypt, and at the bottom of the ocean—but powerful forces will do anything to keep her from uncovering her connection to Syrenka and to the tragedy of so long ago.

Why I'm Waiting: Firstly, the title makes me go ga-ga. Also, is this going to be a tragic version of The Little Mermaid? Is this going to have reincarnation (Yayyyy!)? Love resulting in DEATH? OH I NEED THIS NOW.

The third book in the Paranormalcy trilogy.

The final chapter of Evie's adventures. Old friends, new ones, all wrapped up in impossible decisions. And some ball gowns. Because what's a life of normal and paranormal drama without a ball gown or two?

Why I'm Waiting: Does this really need an explanation? I'm obsessed with the series, I love Kiersten White and I'm in love with Evie. Clearly I'm itching to know what happens to her!

  9. Eee! I have Paranormalcy and Supernaturally at home, and I'm seriously excited to read them... I mean... THE COVERS! SO PRETTY!
    But seriously, I hear amazing things.

    And Monstrous Beauty... REINCARNATION? I didn't even THINK of this! EEEEEE! WANT WANT WANT!

    1. YOU NEED TO READ THEM SARAH! They are incredibly funny! I read on the train/bus to uni alot and I ended up looking like a loser because I couldn't stop laughing at this book!
      And for Monstrous Beauty? I KNOW RIGHT. EEEEEE! I can't wait!!

    2. Hehe! I know that EXACT feeling... sitting on the bus or train and grinning to myself and giggling, and cringing at the same time XD

    BTW how did you make that pink boxes? I've been trying to figure it out for ages. Mind telling? :D

  11. I also have Monstrous Beauty on my to-read list. Mermaids, the retelling, reincarnation... It just looks so good! I haven't read Paranormalcy so I can't say much about Endlessly, but I'm definitely looking forward to the series. Yeah, someday...
