Aphrodite: Goddess of Love | George O'Connor

While I am obsessed with Greek mythology, I cant say I know much about Aphrodite. I enjoyed this one a lot.

2023 is right around the corner. So with that being said, I thought I would help some of you with choices for your #PLC books. In the comments will be some suggestions. I did also add books we have already read for our group.... that is for people that haven't read it yet or want to do a reread. Good Luck and here's to a wonderfully read year.

This book tells a story of magic, adoption, asian culture and adventure. We follow our main character, and non magic human in a world of magic witches, including everyone else i. her family. After her sister performs a spell to share her magic, our main character must go on a journey to prove herself.

I enjoyed this graphic novel for the most part and loved the art style. My only complaint is that, despite being a comic book, it still seemed to do an awful lot of telling rather than showing.

Inanna | Diane Wolkstein
post image

For I, Wolkstein‘s wonderful translation of the stories of a Sumerian goddess, Inanna. (Also known as Ishtar, and in the Old Testament as Astarte - those corrupting Astarte poles.)

For other I‘s, see the comments.

Graywacke Inferno is a more obvious answer, since for me it changed the nature of literature and world building. Two classics: I Know Why the Cages Bird Sings-Maya Angelou, If Beale Street Could Talk-James Baldwin. A personal favorite: Into the Wild-Jon Krakauer. A Nabokov favorite: Invitation to a Beheading. And a surprisingly terrific anthology of place (i adore this): Island Fire: Anthology of Literature from Hawai‘i-Cheryl & James Harstad (edited) 6mo
Jari-chan I just recently read Olga Tokarczuks take on this old tale, that's how I came to know about Inanna. 6mo
merelybookish Your picks are so interesting! (I also like Into the Wild, and still think about it more than a lot of books. It made an impression.) 6mo

eeclayton I loved Into the Wild too. Stacking the Nabokov for later. 6mo
batsy This sounds super fascinating! 6mo
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Thank you for playing! 6mo
Graywacke @Jari-chan how interesting! Which novel is this? 6mo
Graywacke @merelybookish I think the same when I read your picks. 🙂 Into the Wild has an oddly strong draw (even if the book is actually more about Krakauer than McCandless) 6mo
Graywacke @eeclayton i was really drawn to Invitation to a Beheading when i read it a couple years ago. 6mo
Graywacke @batsy it is. And Wolkstein‘s actually makes it something better in her translation, searching for the different meanings (and the pictures in the book are pretty amazing too) 6mo
Graywacke @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks of course. Thanks again for making us make these lists. 🙂 6mo
Jari-chan @Graywacke The tagged one. I'm not sure if there's an English translation, yet. GR doesn't list any... 6mo

Pride Month: Day Twenty Five! ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜

I couldn't decide between these three EXCELLENT graphic novels, so I just decided to feature them all today! 😋

Do like Riley and her desire to be included in her magic family of Gom witches, her having no magic. There was so much going on back and forth, mystery wise, that the book could‘ve used either less or be longer. I liked this passage, thou it felt out of place for Riley since she‘s not an angry person. She holds back all emotions. Wish it connected more, her wanting to get out there. End felt thrown in the air; where does it land?

I read most of this series back in middle school, but when I found it for $3 online I knew I had to reread it. The nostalgia is there, but as an adult looking back, I‘m able to recognize that they aren‘t as good as I remember them being.

If you‘d like to read my reviews of each individual story, I have them posted on my blog (!!!): rainyreader.com. Very proud of how it‘s turned out, and excited to finally get it up and running!


wanderinglynn Your blog looks great! I especially love the “What I‘m reading” section. Did you use a platform (Wordpress, wix, etc.) or build it yourself? Also did you know that U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service has a wildlife forensics lab? Thought as a biologist & forensic scientists, you might find that interesting. 12mo
MsRadioSilence I used Wix! They had a deal i couldnt refuse haha. And i did not know that! Im trying to get a job at the Department of Forensic Science in RVA doing DNA analysis @wanderinglynn 12mo
wanderinglynn The FWS Forensics Lab is really cool. I got to tour it when I worked at the Department of the Interior. https://www.fws.gov/lab/ 12mo
