1/2 Part one of my #MonthInReview for #JanuaryReads. I got a lot of reading done, and as you can see, I wasn't afraid to DNF when books weren't working for me. I was very excited to read Susanna Hoff's first novel (it comes out in April I think), because I am a huge Bangles fan. I also read a lot of romance and holiday stories- but that's what popped up in my audiobook library holds. TBC...

A “modern” version of the Persephone and Hades love story. Very cute, easy to read graphic novel. Trigger warning: SA scene

ChasingOm I just finished this yesterday! 14h
Mariasimon @ChasingOm what did you think?? 14h
kera_11 are these good?? they‘ve been on my maybe list for a long time 10h
ChasingOm It was good enough that I‘ll put the second volume on hold at the library, but it didn‘t blow me away. 2h

My final read of January is in the books! (Pun intended.)

This is a gorgeous graphic novel, made from a webcomic of the same name. The art is both bright and dark, playing off itself in interesting ways, and the story is compelling. I love Greek mythology and found myself asking “wait, is that REALLY what happened?!?” — as if any of it REALLY happened. 😂

January Reading Log: 5 books! Woooo I'm pretty impressed with myself! I finished the Lunar chronicles and I won't be falling up with Stars above since it's a bunch of backstories! Circe was my favorite read of the month. I'm really excited for February and can't wait to see what stories I'll immerse myself in! 💖

Gender Swapped Greek Myths | Karrie Fransman

My husband found this for me as a holiday gift, and it was a lot of fun to read. The intro was especially delightful as the authors spoke about their motivation and talked a bit about the gendered roles we see in these modified stories. The illustrations are also gorgeous. #Mythology #GenderStudies

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 didn't know how much I needed a story like this until I read it. This was adorable. It was a lighter read than I was expecting. And I loved the artistry, it was so good.

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!
