1. (in folklore) a female marine creature, having the head, torso, andarms of a woman and the tail of a fish.

2. a highly skilled female swimmer.


1300-50; Middle English mermayde


Featured Mermaid:

Galen from Of Poseidon

Galen was the main reason why I got sucked into this book so quick. He’s one of those perfect male leads who is completely unrealistic, yet you fall in love with them anyways. It’s basically impossible not to love him because he’s the perfect guy. He’s understanding, romantic, and absolutely gorgeous. Well, in my mind anyway. He also has these really great relationships with all the other characters. Every time he interacts with someone it’s different from the person before. He’s always surprising you with what he says and does. Also, did I mention he’s royalty? Yea, that helps.

Summary: Galen is the prince of the Syrena, sent to land to find a girl he’s heard can communicate with fish. Emma is on vacation at the beach. When she runs into Galen—literally, ouch!—both teens sense a connection. But it will take several encounters, including a deadly one with a shark, for Galen to be convinced of Emma’s gifts. Now, if he can only convince Emma that she holds the key to his kingdom…

Told from both Emma and Galen’s points of view, here is a fish-out-of-water story that sparkles with intrigue, humor, and waves of romance.

I haven’t read very many mermaid books so any recommendations are appreciated! Happy reading!

  1. For me mermaids work in a fantasy marine setting. I have struggled with it in writing when it’s put into a modern everyday setting. However years ago I did enjoy the film “Splash” and I can quite happily watch the children’s Australian TV show called H2O, mermaids probably need to keep with the younger genres to work for me.

    I’ve wondered why mermaids don’t have a human lower half and a fishy upper half.

    And M is for Midway point of A to Z! Thanks for your continued participation!
