Can’t Wait Wednesday – Sarah Henning’s SEA WITCH


“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, which encourages fellow bloggers to spotlight upcoming releases that we’re excited about.  It is a meme that I have  loved participating in for over a year now, but as Jill is no longer actively posting, from now on I’ll just be linking to Can’t Wait Wednesday, hosted by Tressa, which is a spinoff of the original WoW meme.

My selection for this week is SEA WITCH by Sarah Henning.  I just recently read and loved To Kill a Kingdom, which is a Little Mermaid retelling, so when I saw that this book was also a Little Mermaid retelling but from the perspective of the villain, it immediately became a must-read for me.


SEA WITCH by Sarah Henning

Publication Date:  July 31, 2018



From Goodreads:

The fairy tale you thought you knew…

The story of the Sea Witch, the villainess from Hans Christian Anderson’s classic tale The Little Mermaid, told from the viewpoint of the Sea Witch when she was a twelve-year-old girl…

Evie has been wracked with guilt ever since her best friend, Anna, drowned. So when a girl appears on shore with an uncanny resemblance to Anna, Evie befriends her in an effort to make amends. And as the two girls catch the eyes – and hearts – of two charming princes, Evie believes that she might finally have a chance at happy ever after. But is Evie’s new friend really who she says she is? Or will Evie discover, too late, the truth of her bargain? A gripping story of friendship, betrayal and the power of hope…Because ‘though magic can shape life and death… love is the one thing it cannot control

    The idea of a retelling from the villain’s POV is so interesting because there’s so much potential, but I am always slightly afraid they might just ruin a favourite villain entirely at the same time. It turns out I can be very protective of my fave villains lol

    I’m super excited for this one too! I just love the concept I haven’t had the chance to read to kill a kingdom yet but it’s on the list too! So exciting!

    I didn’t realize this was a retelling for The Little Mermaid! That’s not something you see every day! Now I’m even more excited about it, and I don’t normally like retellings. <3
