Each day this month I am going to try to post an artwork that although not classified as Horror Art, could generously be considered “unsettling,“ “macabre,“ or even “horrifying.“ First up is Caravaggio's Medusa. Caravaggio created 2 versions, 1 of which, cleverly experimenting with perspective, was created on a circular wooden shield & subsequently presented to Ferdinando Medici. It is currently displayed in the Uffizi. The tale of Perseus👇
Oops, a day late but did read 3 chapters to finish the tagged yesterday 😅
Goal - 20 chapters in 4 days, finish 4 books
Stone Blind - Natalie Haynes
The Secret History - Donna Tartt
How to kill your family- Bella Mackie
The kingdom under the sea - Joan Aiken

Ithaca is a retelling of Penelope's story, which I loved in theory. To be fair, there is so much in this book that I loved, but the shifts in tone due to Hera being the narrator of the tale felt out of place and became annoying.
I'm still glad that I read it, but it's not a Greek retelling I'll revisit.
Another short story collection finished this week… another mixed bag of reactions! I disliked the first few stories, loved several in the middle, and am on the fence about the rest. I did love the little connections between the stories as well as the hints of magical realism, which become more pronounced as the stories progress. This was my August #DoubleSpin.
Kicking off my #Scarathlon2022 #readathon with the brand new full cast audiobook of The Sandman: Act III(which is not the tagged book coz it‘s not in the database!)I‘m a bit late, tonight‘s been kinda crap.
