I‘m only about 1/4 through, but I‘m enjoying this book focusing on the women of The Trojan War. The story is still driven by men, but one could say that that is a reflection of what little power these strong women had.

I wanted to like this more, as I really enjoy Christina Henry‘s books, but this just was a little slow and dull. It read slightly younger than its intended adult audience and had a writing style that struggled to keep my attention. It is short though so I did finish it. 2.5⭐️ Another #bookspinbingo and #roll100 done though!

Clare-Dragonfly I felt similarly, though I liked it. So her other books are not quite as slow and young? Maybe I should give her another try. 23h
Nessavamusic @clare-dragonfly My favorite by her is this, which is a monster survival horror: (edited) 19h

Mythology has never been my jam, but I've read a handful of great feminist retellings lately, so I gave this one a go. It had some parts that were enjoyable, but it covered too many characters and stories and, therefore, felt disjointed. Medusa ended up being in just a fraction of the book. Overall, I was underwhelmed.
Also, I'm way behind on posting finished books, so here come a bunch of May/June patio and porch reads!

I am not familiar with Greek mythology, so this book was a learning curve, which means it took a week to read it. I loved the themes that poked through without being too obvious. The writing was fantastic.

What a sweet and beautiful fairy tale! This is exactly the kind of book that could make a wonderful movie if they included every single word and detail.

The end of an era! I loved this Webtoon and look forward to rereading in trade.
