Circe | Madeline Miller

I am a huge fan of Greek mythology. And the story of the Odyssey is one of my favorites. That being said, it was fascinating to read about Odysseus and some of the other characters from a completely fresh, new and interesting perspective. She makes classical literature fun. She makes adventure stories relatable, poignant and memorable. I will definitely pick up anything she writes. #recentlyread #nospoilers #mythology #CIRCE #yessss ❤️😊🎉

#ChristmasCarolBuddyRead #FaveXmasGhost👻I'm not sure I have a fave ghost but probably either Padt or Present as the Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come always freaks me out a bit😱Then there's Marley's ghost who warns Scrooge in this issue. I'm enjoying the #ChristmasCarolReread. Tonight I savored it by holiday lights with a cup of tea & Peanut Rocky Road Chocolate Bark-a great way to start the weekend & it makes me say #Yessss #SeasonsReadings2017🎄

#SeasonsReadings2017 Day 15: #Yessss I got my new babies back home here in Singapore. That was a whirlwind KL trip. Two suitcases plus an extra plastic bag filled with super cheap but new books (including Shonda Rhimes‘ #Yessss. #BigBadWolf is the best ever. Late post as I was too conked out last night from lack of sleep to do anything else.

I went to brush my teeth and found Batman storytime in session. I'm so happy that the 6yo enjoyed reading out loud (at least tonight he is) to his little brother.

I had a serious #Yessss moment earlier today, when I took a break from exam writing to read a chapter of HP and eat a bowl of my favourite Christmas dessert - Risalamande 😋👌


JenP That looks amazing. What is it exactly? 2y
Kalalalatja @JenP it is a sort of rice pudding mixed with vanilla, whipped cream and almonds, and topped with warm cherry sauce 👌 2y
4thhouseontheleft I have been wanting to make that! Do you have a recipe that you can share? 2y

Kalalalatja @4thhouseontheleft sure! This seems like a good one, but I haven't tried it myself http://nordicfoodliving.com/risalamande-danish-rice-dessert/ 👍 2y
4thhouseontheleft @Kalalalatja Lol that‘s the recipe I have saved on Pinterest! I have to figure out where I can buy cherry sauce. 2y
Kalalalatja @4thhouseontheleft it can be eaten without it if you can't wait 😉 2y
RealLifeReading Yum that sounds delightful! 2y
JenP @Kalalalatja thanks! That sounds really good! 2y
Christine11 Love the cover !! 😊 2y
Kalalalatja @Christine11 I don't really like the Danish covers, I have seen so many beautiful, simple editions that I would prefer 😄 2y
Christine11 @Kalalalatja There are so many stunning and different editions ! I‘ve never seen the danish ones though 😊 2y
Kalalalatja @Christine11 if I remember it, I will take a pic of all the Danish books, once I have moved and unpacked all my books, and tag you in it 👍 2y
Christine11 @Kalalalatja That would be lovely 😊 good luck with your move - hope it‘s stress-free ! 2y
Jinjer That looks delicious!!!! 2y

#yessss!!! I can see why everyone loves this book! Im 2/3 Of the way through this and I want to mark every page for something that is said or done in this book. Eleanor sees the world in a whole new way - things most of us take for granted. I have laughed out loud so many times. It is not a comedy though, there are dark parts too. #seasonsreadings2017

RealLifeReading Those trees are so cute! 2y

That feeling when you finally finish wrapping the presents #yessss The tagged book is my mum's present. Don't worry, she isn't on Litsy. She doesn't really understand what "that internet" is. #SeasonsReadings2017 @RealLifeReading

kathedron My dad calls the internet "a criminal's playground" and refuses to have anything to do with it. 2y
batsy My mother warily acknowledges, with deep skepticism, that sometimes I can get things done for her via "the online". 2y
BarbaraBB @River_Voice 😂😂 Love that! 2y

Kaye @River_Voice Criminal‘s Playground 😄 Funny. Maybe you should be more careful , hanging out with all us book-reading, dope smoking, bank robbing gang members. 🤪 2y
kathedron @Kaye Well, now you mention it... my husband asked me the other day if I wanted any money from the cash machine and I told him 10 thousand in used bank-notes would be fine. (Where did that come from?!) 2y
Kaye @River_Voice 😄 We kept ours the old fashioned way. We have coffee cans full of the Loot buried in the backyard. We have to go out at night with a metal detector to find a can when we need extra money. Don‘t want the neighbors seeing us, or the whole yard will be dug up some morning. 2y
arlenefinnigan 😂😂😂😂😂 2y
kathedron @Kaye 😂 Glad to hear you're keeping the old ways alive. These traditional skills are in danger of being lost. 2y
