Waiting On Wednesday #17: Fathomless by Jackson Pearce

"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly meme hosted by  

This is were we get to 'spotlight' books that we are anxiously waiting to be released! The ones that we are dying to get our hands on and read into the wee hours of the night and make our shelves look all pretty :)

Fairytale Retellings #3
by Jackson Pearce 
Release date: September 4th, 2012

(from Goodreads) 

"Celia Reynolds is the youngest in a set of triplets and the one with the least valuable power. Anne can see the future, and Jane can see the present, but all Celia can see is the past. And the past seems so insignificant -- until Celia meets Lo. 
Lo doesn't know who she is. Or who she was. Once a human, she is now almost entirely a creature of the sea -- a nymph, an ocean girl, a mermaid -- all terms too pretty for the soulless monster she knows she's becoming. Lo clings to shreds of her former self, fighting to remember her past, even as she's tempted to embrace her dark immortality.
When a handsome boy named Jude falls off a pier and into the ocean, Celia and Lo work together to rescue him from the waves. The two form a friendship, but soon they find themselves competing for Jude's affection. Lo wants more than that, though. According to the ocean girls, there's only one way for Lo to earn back her humanity. She must persuade a mortal to love her . . . and steal his soul."

Why I'm waiting on... Fathomless? 

You all know that that is my main thing ;) 

And, have you read Sisters Red and Sweetly yet??? 
Have you seen the NEW covers??? 

 I believe that all three will look lovely on the shelf ;) 

Sooo, what are you waiting on this week??? 
Please leave your comments and links, I want to see :)

Happy 4th of July!!! and happy reading!!! 


  1. Definitely excited to read Fathomless, too! Jackson Pearce is amazing! :D

  2. I actually just finished reading Sweetly last night so I'm especially excited to get my hands on this! I'm curious to see if she ties the characters of Sweetly into this or not because Lo definitely sounds like a certain character I remember ;) Great pick and thanks for sharing!
