Part of the ritual for me of starting a new book is finding the perfect bookmark! I know, what can I say 🤣🤣🤣

TheBookAddict Nice! 🙂👍🏽 2d
hjreviews I really like that! Do you reuse bookmarks or does each book get one specifically for them? 2d
TheBookHippie Ooooo ❤️ 2d

Went to see the Troy exhibition at the British Museum yesterday - which was fabulous and whet my appetite for a little mythology. Thanks to the wonderful @AmyG my bookshelf could satisfy that itch! Looking forward to a new to me author.

Cinfhen I loved this book!!! 2d

My Jan 2020 reads. Admittedly Bosh is a cook book but as I've made almost everything in it I think it counts. The Silence of the Girls comes out top this month for me but Philosophy for Polar Explorers is a close second.

A very worthy listen - told from the female perspective. Men make war and the women and children of the conquered suffer the consequences - brutal slavery and/or brutal death. This is very intense and disturbing, but well done. #Audiobook #Audible

Loved this so much. The Iliad from the point of view of the women. Pat Barker has done a tremendous job here. A completely fresh look at one of the most well known stories out there.

The Song of Achilles | Madeline Miller
post image

Started this this morning. Loving it so far.

Jess_Franzino One of my faves. Madeline Miller is such a sweetheart, too. I had the pleasure of getting to know her while I was in Greece back in September ❤️ 1mo

⭐⭐⭐⭐1/2. I had read somewhere in all of the praise for Circe that reading Song of Achilles was "not necessary." However because it precedes it and is Madeline Miller's first novel I had always planned on it. And I'm so glad I did! It is an incredible book, easy to read and I was obsessed with the relationship between Achilles and Patroclus. Thetis was formidable and daunting. Agamemnon was disgusting and highly unlikable. Chiron patient and wise

sprainedbrain One of my favorite books ever. Madeline Miller is amazing. 2mo
Kayla.Adriena @sprainedbrain Does she have more planned after Circe? 2mo
Velvetfur Great review! 😁 2mo

I did it! Right under the wire, I finished me Goodreads goal. I realize 24 books is super modest compared to what many of you read, but this challenge really keeps me going throughout the year to make sure I am talking a break from reading unpublished manuscripts at work to do reading for myself. As for this book, I loved it! I sometimes felt like the men were taking center stage, but but the end, I understood the author‘s intention. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Mollyanna Congratulations 🎉🍾🎉 2mo
PickwickPlockPlock Congratulations! 2mo
ravenlee Meeting your goal is awesome! Congratulations! It‘s not a competition, and a lot of it depends on what kind of books you read (I read a lot of kid lit, which goes really fast and makes my total look higher than it otherwise would). Happy New Year! 2mo
