Just finished up this beauty! Thank you again @librarianryan for sending it to me for #mythsandlegendsswap !! It was my # 1 Most wanted book but then I kept saving it, planning to read it for a special occasion. Circe's story was mesmerizing and made for a wonderful pick me up 🖤

Read-y_Picker I preordered the paperback. It is supposed to arrive by Tuesday but things being what they are who knows when I‘ll get to crack it open. I‘ve waited so long. Glad to hear it‘s worth the wait! 2y

This was a fun read! Thanks @Velvetfur for including this in the #MythsandLegendsSwap🤩🤩

Loki‘s portrayed as snarky, sarcastic and surprisingly human. I had the Avengers‘ Loki in mind from the start; the author was either inspired by him too, or simply created a very similar image of him, cause they really fit.

LittleBug Unfortunately, I‘m not very familiar with Norse mythology, so I may have missed some puns. Will be on the lookout for a book on the subject and will then maybe do a reread... Any recommendations? 2y
LittleBug @ju.ca.no ohhh! Great rec! Didn‘t realise he stayed true to the myths🙈 Stacked it! Thx! 2y

ju.ca.no @LittleBug I don‘t have much knowledge of Norse Mythology but as far as I can tell- he did stay true to the myths! It was an enjoyable read and a good overview of the norse myths☺️ 2y
LittleBug @ju.ca.no sounds good🤩 2y
Velvetfur I'm so happy this was a pick for you! I'm glad you enjoyed it 😁 2y

Not just beautiful world building, but Durst also makes it come alive. Although I‘ve seen it labeled ‘YA‘, it didn‘t read that way for me. Sure, a younger audience would love this, but so would an older one. I for sure really enjoyed it. So, thank you @Velvetfur for including it in the #MythsandLegendsSwap 🤩🤩

LittleBug Although Robert Jordan isn‘t mentioned in the acknowledgments as one if the authors that inspired Durst, the academy reminded me of Tar Valon. The way the spirits are commanded reminded me of a book about dragons, that I read ages ago...Possibly the one from Anne McCaffrey that is mentioned in the acknowledgments😊 2y
Velvetfur Aaww I'm so glad you enjoyed it! 💜 2y

And a super special big ol' shoutout to @MeganAnn and her #mythsandlegendsswap for going way above and beyond. An excellent host and a lovely thoughtful person (and a fellow Supernatural fan, so obviously has great taste!) I love all of this so much. Too blown away to know what to say, other than thank you! And watch your mail towards the end of the week 😉

MeganAnn Oh yay! I‘m so glad you like everything and that it arrived safely! ❤️❤️❤️ 3y
Libby1 Oh, good gracious. The unicorn picture. Is it a postcard or a pencil case? I‘m in love. 🤤 3y

So excited to come home from my long little weekend vacation to find the #mythsandlegendsswap package from @dlowe86 ❤️ Super excited about these books (the Slenderman looks very creepy!) and the mug and keychains are super cute! Many many thanks!
 @MeganAnn

Mitch Cute mug ❤️ 3y
MeganAnn Adorable mug!! 🎉❤️⚡️ 3y
dlowe86 So sorry it took so long. The older gentlemen who works our post office couldn't find the address in the system and we had to wait on the post master to help. She wasn't in the day I went to send. 3y
j9brown @dlowe86 Ah this stupid address! That must have been annoying 😖 Every once in a while some website thinks it doesn't exist, I think the dash makes it confusing. But no worries at all and thank you again for the lovely package 😊 it's all in good fun! 3y

@Avanders the rest of the gifts have shown up and they are breathtaking yet again! I absolutely love the journal, the old leather bound feel with blank pages, ah I just love it. And the cup is fantastic, I adore it so much and the book is going to be so much fun to read, I only know a few Celtic tales I can‘t wait to learn more! Thank you so much! #mythsandlegendsswap

lover.of.the.classics Wow! Those look NICE!!! 3y
Avanders ♥️♥️♥️ I‘m glad you like 🤗 Many thanks to @MeganAnn for coming up with such a fun swap! 🥰🥰 3y
