2015: January Recap

Catch up with the latest posts from Mermaid Vision Books with this handy guide to the month!

Happy end of the month, dear readers! I know I can’t be the only one who’s ready to see the cold temperatures start to ease away and allow spring to start. January was a pretty dramatic month for me, with lots of personal things going on, so I didn’t get to read or write as much as I would have liked.

I did have a piece go up on Women Write About Comics this month that I’m quite proud of: an introspective on the use of time travel in Korean dramas. One of my goals for the year is to write more about Asian media, and I look forward to sharing those pieces with you!

Vivian Apple at the End of the World by Katie Coyle: “Katie Coyle asks readers to take a look at Vivian Apple at the End of the World, and dares them to find where they stand and what they believe and hold fast to them, a challenge that will delight and polarize audiences.”

All Fall Down by Ally Carter: “All Fall Down heralds the start of a strong new series, with Ally Carter’s deft hand guiding Grace’s story. Readers will not only be satisfied, but yearn for the next installment immediately after closing the cover.”

Fairest by Marissa Meyer: “Fairest is a chilling addition to the Lunar Chronicles canon, setting up for the inevitable final stand against a queen who has everything, including herself, to lose.”

Through the Woods by Emily Carroll: “Through the Woods is a stellar collection of beautifully drawn tales, best read as the winter sun begins to set, and the curtains ripple with the wind you’re sure can’t be coming from outside. Because that window is closed. Right?”


The Premise: What if the world ended tomorrow, and the only place we could go was space? 97 years after a nuclear apocalypse devastates the Earth, 100 juvenile delinquents (a relative term) are sent down to the ground from the Ark, a space station humanity has inhabited since the disaster. Their newfound freedom is exhilarating as it is short-lived, as they realize that a) they are not the only human beings on Earth and b) their families’ lives and the future of humanity depend on their survival.
