The Song of Achilles | Madeline Miller

Omg, I loved this so much, I almost didn‘t finish it, knowing where it was going. I wasn‘t looking forward to it, because it‘s really not my usual taste, being YA style, but it‘s probably my fave book in a long time

I know I‘m way behind, but this was an excellent pick from start to finish. I was reminded that it was in one of my to-be-read stacks by a student who was reading it. Glad I opened it! Much better than Miller‘s Circe, which I enjoyed. Achilles was much more engrossing, better written, and more lyrical. A wonderful love tale of the great Greek hero!

A joy to read, effortless 600 pages. Not what I was expecting, a pleasant surprise.

I‘ll call this a Pick because I liked it well enough, but it felt a bit long and it didn‘t contain author‘s notes about why this particular myth was being retold and what sources, if any, were drawn upon. (Natalie Haynes writes good author‘s notes in this regard.) Content warning for rape / sexual assault.

Middlesex: A Novel | Jeffrey Eugenides

I am sitting here in awe of what I just read. I was given this book in a swap years ago and it‘s been sitting on my shelf ever since because I never really felt excited to read it. Once I finally started however I fell in love with the narrator Calliope Stephanides immediately. The story that he weaved from his grandparents in Greece to his parents in Detroit to his transformation into Cal was epic, heartbreaking and gorgeous.

Here's the thing with this book - It's a simplified version of some things we can try to implement to increase our functional potential. It does not address all the obstacles that hinder each individual from achieving their goals with nutrition or fitness. The advice is not for everyone depending on your goals or situation. It's one guy's opinion based on his experience and basic-level research, nothing more. ⬇️ (Cont'd in comments) ⬇️

jitteryjane724 HOWEVER, after reading this book I do feel more inspired to find smart ways to challenge and exceed my current limitations. And that is enough for me to recommend this book. 2w

So I‘m trying to create a mythology unit for my first graders. It started with me playing some songs from Epic: The Musical to me reading a kid version of the Odyssey to them wanting more. Trying to think of how kid-friendly I can be when Zeus did so much damage with his libido.

SamAnne What a great idea. 2w
