The January theme for is a folktale or mythological retelling. So, since I wanted to read Circe, I decided it would work for this month’s challenge.

I went into this book knowing some of Circe’s mythology. But not all of it. Circe was a witch, daughter of the Titan Helios. I honestly can’t remember her mother’s name, because she’s not a good mother. Circe is exiled and ends up making a home on her island. She turns men into pigs who might attack her. She has courage.

Everyone else takes a second seat to Circe. The book’s flow is wonderful. The descriptions were lyrical and you felt everything. Helios almost blinded you. You felt Lioness’s fur on your chest.

I don’t want to say too much more, in case I spoil something, but if you’re a fan of mythology, we’ll rounded females, and lots of emotions, then pick up this book. You won’t be disappointed.

10/10 I loved everything about this book. It was perfect!
