Want to swim with Mermaids? Here are some Book Recommendations


Hey readers! I have a new book recommendations post and this one is all about mermaids and the ocean. I don’t know why but there’s just something I love so damn much about mermaids, I mean magical swimming girls that rule the ocean (let’s ignore mermen okay, who even needs them anyway right?are just so damn badass and lovely. Would I give my legs up in order to become a beautiful mermaid? Yes yes yes. I just have to make my kindle waterproof, I’ll let scientists take care of that, so I can still read books because life is just not complete without them.

However, being a mermaid is still not possible (magical mermaids please appear and transform me now, I really want to swim with dolphins) so in the meanwhile, I’ll just have to read books about them instead.

Truth is, I don’t think I have ever read a book where mermaids are the main theme of the book. That feels so weird considering I actually love them. That’s why I went out on a scavenger hunt to find some young adult books about mermaids. Down below is the list of the seven books about and/or with mermaids that I found. The titles are linked to Goodreads.


  1. The Mermaid’s Sister by Carrie Anne Noble. Buy on Amazon.
  2. Shearwater by D. S. Murphy. Buy on Amazon (free right now!).
  3. Of Poseidon by Anna Banks. Buy on Amazon.
  4. Just Breathe by Heather Allen. Buy on Amazon (free right now!).
  5. The Siren by Kiera Cass. Buy on Amazon.
  6. Promises by Amber Garr. Buy on Amazon (free right now!).
  7. The Summer of Chasing Mermaids by Sarah Ockler. Buy on Amazon.

These are all about mermaids but in different ways and I really can’t wait to take a dive with them. Three of these books are free right now so I’d grab those right away. These books vary in the form they feature mermaids in them but that’s what’s so perfect, you can really find the one you’re in the mood for. All of these have aspects that lure me in. Do you become a mermaid for love, family, friendship? What kind of struggles do they face and is it really as magical as we all like to believe? All of that I’m dying to find out as a read these books. Maybe I can’t be a mermaid, but reading one of these books will hopefully be close enough.

Do you love books with mermaids in them? Do you have any more books to add to this list?

  1. Great post! Atlantia by Ally Condie definitely has a mermaid feel to it. It’s not technically about mermaids but it is pretty close for sure. I also will forever love the Emily Windsnap series!


  2. I OWN THE SUMMER OF CHASING MERMAIDS AND THANKS TO YOU I WANT TO READ IT NOW ❤ shearwater has been on my kindle forever! need to get onto that. and i've been wanting to read of poseidon too. hit me up if you want to read any of those 😉
