One thought on “Sea Foam and Silence

  1. Nikki

    Received as a gift from the authorIn favour of me enjoying this book I love retellings, especially ones which add in a bit of diversity or something else that updates the story Not in favour it s a verse novel, and in free verse at that I m terrible and tend to prefer really structured poetry Oh, and Lynn chose to use emoticons in the text, which she had solid reasoning for, but I am apparently just a cranky traditionalist and it tended to pull me out of things rather than add to it though it do [...]

  2. Sinead (Huntress of Diverse Books)

    I joined the AceBookClub in reading Sea Foam and Silence The idea of the book club is to read a book together and discuss it on Twitter Just so you know You don t have to be on the asexual spectrum to join It s an asexual retelling of The Little Mermaid It s ownvoices The GoodThis is a free verse novel I was very hesitant about reading this book because of the writing style, but it suited the story The little mermaid is confused most of the time, and the free verse, the emojis and the broken wri [...]

    When I dance, I can tell stories of my sisters When I dance, I am reminded of the sea.Whenever I am homesick for the ocean, I dance until I am dizzied with exhaustion And it is no longer enough I need to see the sea again I want to see my sisters again.I want to know that accepting the Witch s offer was right.Am I a mermaid with the shape of a tall crab Am I a tall crab born a mermaid Am I neither Am I both I do not know the truth any Sea Foam and Silence is a diverse retelling of The Little Mer [...]

  4. Avery (Book Deviant)

    See of my reviews on my blog the Book DeviantI didn t realize this at first, but Sea Foam and Silence is a novella told in verse, from a very limited point of view I at first had difficulties adapting to this, but the style quickly charmed me, and made this an easy read This style of verse was very unique, and, even though you don t know much about the lead character, you become very close to her through her experiences and the way she describes her emotions.Often, the little mermaid was confus [...]

    Yay polyamory, asexuality, queerness This lil mermaid Disney any day I liked the development of Maris s understandings of family, and although found the first person verse a bit tedious at times same rhythm over over some may find this soothing , I didn t feel as exhausted by it as I expected to when I began I also thought the first person would get exhausting but it was pretty ok I didn t actually realize it was supposed to be poetry until I finished it and was speculating on why it was written [...]

    All I knew was it s an ace retelling of The Little Mermaid and I was already sold I had so many other books to read and so little time, so first, I just added it to my to read list Then I became weak, I bought the kindle version, and I started reading few hours later I actually managed to find some time to read, mostly just before sleeping, and it was always hard to put it down The novel is written in free verse, so it s a quick read It was the first time I read a novel in verse, though I wanted [...]

    A little mermaid watches the tall crabs and starts to think they might be people too, but heading to land to find out will come with a cost.This is a retelling of The Little Mermaid written in free verse It s hard to judge length with long poetry, but the book is around novel length Fewer words on each page means it s a relatively quick read.The mermaid is set the deadline of a year to find love or be turned into sea foam There are three main sections, with the first covering her life at sea, th [...]

    This was incredibly comforting as someone still working through aro specness It s often advertised talked about as an ace retelling, but the fact that Maris is aro spec came through just as strongly and was just as important.I loved that multiple characters, human and mermaid, were ace spec and or aro spec It makes it clear that being aspec isn t related to the parts of Maris that aren t human and that aspecness isn t what separated her from her sisters Notes on the chars and rep view spoiler we [...]

    This book was such a lovely read I had it recommended to me for a reading challenge and had never heard of it before, but was very pleasantly surprised It s rare to read narratives like this in verse but I found I rather enjoyed it I really enjoyed the worldbuilding particularly the efforts taken to make mermaids not just humans with fins but entirely different creatures with different values and a different culture as well as the characterization Both the protagonist mermaid and the characters [...]

    this diverse retelling in verse is amazing it is not only refreshing because of its diversity, but also so interesting the way the author engages the retelling and introduces both new and old parts of the story is fabulous the main character was so great, not only in terms of personality but also the journey she goes through definitely recommend

  11. Andrea

    I was really curious about this story because it was described to me as a The Little Mermaid retelling in verse with an ace main character.To be honest, the story is interesting I like the way the mermaid is characterized, her motivations and her personality I also like the way her character evolves and changes and questions herself throughout the novel Well, and the ending is incredibly adorable.The way it s written is different to what I m used to and I thought it was going to be the reason I [...]
