The Mermaid’s Mirror: A playlist of siren songs

At Novel Novice, we think every good book deserves a playlist, and with so many songs mentioned in The Mermaid’s Mirror, we just couldn’t resist. L.K. even sent us some of her own suggestions! Some songs are serious, but many are just silly. After all, how can you even talk about mermaids without mentioning “The Little Mermaid?” Click on the title below to go to the soundtrack.
