I loved Circe.
I saw the beautiful cover all over Instagram, and heard all about the pricing snafu on a Book Riot podcast, so I ordered it in my Book of the Month box. Typically, a book about mythology is not in my wheelhouse, but maybe I need to change my tune. Or, maybe I am just a big Madeline Miller fan.
This book is follows the life of Circe, daughter of a god and a nypmh. Her father is Helios, god of the sun. She is her parent’s first child, and is considered strange from the beginning of her life. She is dedicated to her father as a child, but also has a will of her own. You are introduced to many of the Greek gods and mythological characters, but their power and the lure of their stories does not overpower the story of Circe.
I spent most of my time with this book outside, enjoying the spring/early summer weather and a drink. It was hard to put this book down, and I couldn’t wait to get back to it each time.
Pick this one up if you haven’t!
