Circe | Madeline Miller

"The worst of my cowardice had been sweated out. In its place was a giddy spark. I will not be like a bird bred in a cage, I thought, too dull to fly even when the door stands open. I stepped into those woods and my life began."

The mythology is what initially drew me to this book but now it's the writing from Circe's perspective, as well as lines like the quote above that solidify my love.
I'm looking for more of this book, please. ???

Reading “Circe” by Madeline Miller, and I definitely feel like I had some hyped up recommendations.... I‘m about half way through the book and really having a difficult time finishing. Miller is a phenomenal writer and has wonderful descriptions of her characters and the world they live in. It‘s about Circe from Greek Mythology, and maybe I‘m just not as interested in that as I thought. Hopefully it finishes strong 🤞🏻

This is one of the best books I have read this year. I loved the characters, especially Circe, I loved the story of her life as a witch, the settings and plot were beautifully written and the ending was very satisfying.

5/5⭐ Perfect for close examination. Motifs like stones, seeds, & scars pervade Circe's character arc but also other characters/themes. Miller brilliantly fills in gaps in myth to produce a lush world & multidimensional characters. The wordsmithing is drop-dead gorgeous. One readthrough is not enough to get everything out of it that Miller put in. The audio narrator could not have been more perfectly chosen or done a better job. #NEWTsReadathon2019

Mid-19th century burn. 🤣. The good Rev. Sabine Baring-Gould intends to take down the William Tell myth (in his 1867 book - 1977 version tagged). I almost feel as though I‘m doing him a disservice if I do not respond to his stated intention by growling “Do your worst, sir!” 😂

I was already familiar with most of these stories, but I think I was bound to love Gaiman‘s fanciful, often funny, spin on them. Especially in audiobook format, read by the author. 😍

It‘s like listening to a brilliant storyteller recount magical legends... because that‘s exactly what it is.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️1/2 I finally read this book and it was so good! So much happens but the book is overall well paced with a few slower parts. There were definitely times when I couldn‘t put this book down. Such a great story, wonderful imagery, and beautifully written. I‘ll definitely pick up what Madeline Miller writes next.
