This book came to my attention because I had picked it for my Book of the Month for March. Having read The Song of Achilles. I am excited to dig into this one.

Mythology is so intriguing to me. So far I am intrigued by Circe. Miller writes this mythical character but makes them so relatable.

  • The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller

Unknown

My Thoughts:

HOLY MOLY!!!! Check out my blog post: Incredible Reads: Part 2

Here is the Goodreads synopsis:

Greece in the age of heroes. Patroclus, an awkward young prince, has been exiled to the court of King Peleus and his perfect son Achilles. By all rights their paths should never cross, but Achilles takes the shamed prince as his friend, and as they grow into young men skilled in the arts of war and medicine their bond blossoms into something deeper – despite the displeasure of Achilles’ mother Thetis, a cruel sea goddess. But then word comes that Helen of Sparta has been kidnapped. Torn between love and fear for his friend, Patroclus journeys with Achilles to Troy, little knowing that the years that follow will test everything they hold dear.

Profoundly moving and breathtakingly original, this rendering of the epic Trojan War is a dazzling feat of the imagination, a devastating love story, and an almighty battle between gods and kings, peace and glory, immortal fame and the human heart.

Up Next

My reads for next week are:

  • To Kill a Kingdom By Alexandra Christo
  • White Houses by Amy Bloom

When they say life is a marathon not a sprint obviouslt never had a week like mine. c8105078a42256945aa04ed5dd9c212c.jpgLOL I just felt like I was dragging it like a ball and chain.

How else felt this way this week?

Summer is inching closer and my patience is thin. I think my kids would agree. We are wokring quickly to line-up swimming lessons and camps for the boys. We like to relax but we also love going on adventures.

The girls and I are excited for the summer beach trip. The hubby and I are planning on a few parent-only getaways.  This time of year our suitcases and weekend bags get a lot of use.

We also had an event with our carnival krewe. They hosted a crawfish boil-off and car show. We had a great time eating our way through 10 teams of crawfish Each time boils with there own special blend of seasoning in an effort to win 1st prize. Everyone attending get an armband that allows them to go around to all the teams and try theirs out. Lots of crawfish was eaten yesterday but it was a great day with beautiful weather.

    Although i think i’m as far from being a mermaid as possible. Was just discussing the upcoming beach holiday with my BF and he was talking about swimming in the sea and i was like “that’s not how i do beach. i go there to read my books and drink cocktails” 😀

      That’s mug is about as close as I get. I do love the beach 🏝 and enjoy some sun and sand with some water time. But I do prefer the book and beverage idea more. Lol
