Welcome to another Sat and with it the Top 5 Saturday meme created by the wonderful and supportive Mandy over at Devouring Books. This week’s topic is: Books Inspired by Myth. I have to admit, mythology is usually Nen’s domain as opposed to mine but as a result of her recommendations there are a few I’m keen to give a try!
Here are they are:
Madeline Miller’s writing has been on my radar since Nen fell in love with Circe and raved over it. From the inclusion of myth to adding a unique spin on plot and characters, hearing about Miller’s writing had me adding these two books to my TBR in the hope that I’ll eventually get to them. Seriously… my TBR is a bit insane right now!
I’ve been a Lords of the Underworld fan for a LONG TIME now. I mean… this is the 15th book in the series and it’s still going strong! William of the Dark has been one of my fav characters all along and its ABOUT TIME Showalter got to bringing his book out. I’m apprehensive and incredibly excited about reading it as I already know from some minor spoilers that it’s going to be different than what I had been hoping for. Fingers crossed it’s worth all of the wait!
First off… I’m gonna be THAT PERSON and just admit that these books (mostly) made it on to my TBR because of their stunningly pretty covers and the authors’ cred. I mean… does it get much better in mythology than Fry and Gaiman? For those reasons alone I’ve added them! Plus, Nen owns the books so that’s always a convenient way to give them a try!
