Title: Of Poseidon
Author: Anna Banks
Series: unknown at this time
Publisher: Feiwel & Friends, an imprint of Macmillan
Publication Date: May 22, 2012
Why I'm waiting: Just as vampires and werewolves before them, mermaids -- or maybe I should say sea creatures, in general, just to be politically correct -- are the new trend in YA literature this year. In addition to Of Poseidon, I'm also looking forward to Lies Beneath and Monstrous Beauty, both due out later this year.
I've been a fan of mermaids ever since the first time I saw Disney's The Little Mermaid. Well, probably even before that, but that movie solidified my love for all things "under the sea". Heh. But in all seriousness, this particular mer tale boasts some serious potential and has already garnered some spectacular reviews. I can't wait to dive in! Okay, okay...I'll stop. I just had to get that last one in. :D
