Happy Monday, everyone! 

Goodreads Monday is a weekly meme created by Lauren’s Page Turners. All you have to do to participate is pick a book from your Goodreads TBR, and explain why you want to read it.

I’ve been itching to read this one for a while, so here goes nothin’…

 

GOODREADS MONDAY (1/27/20)-LIES BENEATH by Anne Greenwood Brown

Blurb from Goodreads: 

Calder White lives in the cold, clear waters of Lake Superior, the only brother in a family of murderous mermaids. To survive, Calder and his sisters prey on humans and absorb their positive energy. Usually, they select their victims at random, but this time around, the underwater clan chooses its target for a reason: revenge. They want to kill Jason Hancock, the man they blame for their mother’s death.

It’s going to take a concerted effort to lure the aquaphobic Hancock onto the water. Calder’s job is to gain Hancock’s trust by getting close to his family. Relying on his irresistible good looks and charm, Calder sets out to seduce Hancock’s daughter Lily. Easy enough, but Calder screws everything up by falling in love – just as Lily starts to suspect there’s more to the monster-in-the-lake legends than she ever imagined, and just as the mermaids threaten to take matters into their own hands, forcing Calder to choose between them and the girl he loves.

One thing’s for sure: whatever Calder decides, the outcome won’t be pretty.

 

So why do I want to read this?

Even though the romantic subplot does sound a bit cliched, I’m still hooked for one reason, and one reason only…

MERMAIDS.

Beyond that, I’m interested how they weave said supernatural element into an intricate revenge story. Like I said; not enough quality mermaid content in YA. [chanting] good mermaid book good mermaid book GOOD MERMAID BOOK GOOD MERMAID BOOK GOOD MERMAID BOOK G O O D M E R M A I D B O O K 

[ahem]

Anyway. Needless to say, I’m pretty excited to get my hands on this one.

 

Today’s song:

Yep. Watchmen is my newest obsession now.

 

That just about wraps up this week’s Goodreads Monday! Have  a great rest of your day, and take care of yourselves!
