Waiting on Wednesday

"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. It lets us all gush about what soon-to-be released books we are jumping-up-and-down excited for.

Of Poseidon

hitting shelves May 22nd, 2012 from Feiwel & Friends

Emma and her friend Chloe are spending vacation in Florida. When Emma (literally) runs into a hot guy named Galen on the beach, little does she know he’s a prince of the Syrena. Galen and Emma both feel something strange – is it attraction? – and Galen suspects that Emma might well be the girl he’s heard of – a human who can communicate with fish.

What follows is a deadly scene with a shark in which Galen witnesses Emma’s gifts. He must know more about her, and follows her back to New Jersey, and high school, to find out for sure if she’s the key to saving his kingdom. Soon, Emma can’t deny her feelings for him, but can’t explain them, either – and both she and Galen must learn more about where she comes from and what her powers are before they can trust one another and their feelings.

My thoughts: Mermaids, awesome cover, and girl who can talk to...fish? Well, what the heck are the fish saying, I want to know! This one definitely has me intrigued, but more than anything I am completely smitten with that gorgeous cover. Definitely on my wishlist.


  1. I've seen this one around a lot today, and it looks better each time (though somebody really needs to tell the girl on the cover that she won't get so much water up her nose if she tucks her chin in!). Great pick!

  2. I want this one already and I heard about it TODAY !

    Great Pick!

  4. I really love the cover for this one! Too bad it doesn't come out until May next year. That's a long wait! Great pick!

  5. OMG TOO cool. And I love that it starts in Florida. Great pick!

  6. I can't wait for this one either, it sounds great! Pretty cover too, nice pick :).

  7. hmm it does seem like an interesting read... and your right, the cover is freaking awesome!

  8. i saw this for the first time earlier today, it's definitely on my list too!

  9. I wanted to see Dead Like Me because I thought it sounded like a cool show but never got around to watching it.

    I agree with all of your reasons for picking this one. It sounds awesome. Great choice!
