Sometimes the real world can get too hard to handle. That’s when you feel like you want to escape someplace else, even if for a short while. Since the pandemic doesn’t let us have the vacation we want, there’s an easier way to travel to a faraway world – through a book!

I personally love books that have entire fantasy worlds created in them. It’s an attestation to the power of the written word how much they make it seem believable, and how much they get us invested in the characters. When you’re in fantasy world, nothing seems impossible. You can meet anyone, from a leprechaun to a fairy to a mermaid!

So if you’ve got a fantasy novel all set for your summer reading, we’ve got the perfect bookmark for you – another creature from the land of fantasy – a mermaid! Well, not exactly a full mermaid – we only have her tail. To know where the mermaid herself is, you’ll have to read the entire book!
