Circe by Madeline Miller
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
“The thought was this: that all my life had been murk and depths, but I was not a part of that dark water. I was a creature within it.”
Miller flawlessly interweaves the infamous stories and characters of Greek mythology into a provocative tale of a goddess who wasn’t very godlike. Universal themes of motherhood, love, loss, solitude, revenge, compassion, and strength permeate every nook and cranny of a novel you will not want to put down. Typically, I do no like fantasy, but I really liked this. Four enthusiastic stars.
