Mermaid - Carolyn TurgeonJust finished reading this book. A while back I read that Joe Wright was thinking of making it into a movie, with Saorise Ronan as Lenia (the mermaid), since then though I haven’t seen much about it, so I don’t know if it’s happening anymore. But I got it out to read anyway :)Basically it’s a novel, adult version of the little mermaid, with both sides of the story, the mermaids AND the princess that finds the prince washed up on shore. (It’s refreshing to read an adult novel about a fairytale that HASN’T been modernised. here’s nothing wrong with that, but it gets a bit old after a while.) I quite enjoyed it! It wasn’t the best novel I’ll ever read, and there was a lot of potential for it to be a great novel, but it was interesting and stayed pretty true to the fairytale, though there are a few interesting changes. It’s definitely worth a read.

hello there,
I'm Rebecca, and I'm rather fanciful*.
This tumblr is a mixture of everything
and anything (Except for boring stuff,
unless it's particularly useful),
from what inspires me,
to what just makes me expire,
due to many laugh laugh sounds.
