Top 10 Mermaid Books of 2016

 

According to Charles Darwin, and his theory of evolution, humans are descended from creatures that once roamed in our seas hundreds of millions of years ago. This information has always been entrenched in our subconsciousness which is why we often feel this deep yearning to head over to the sea. This is why most of our myths and fables often portray various sea creatures, from mermaids to the rest. One of the reasons why Mermaid books often have a better reception than say some other fantastical creature is often a result of this subconsciousness kicking in.
