A Month of Myths-An August 2021 TBR

As you can guess by the title, I have decided to dedicate this month to retellings. But not just any retellings. Greek myth retellings.

Why am I doing this, you may be asking? Well, it’s because I have a few of them (re:5) and I want to read them. Plus I bought one I had my eye on specifically for this TBR, so that’s fun.

On to the books!

The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller

The story of Patroclus, Achilles and the Trojan war. I have been told to expect feelings while reading this. So yeah.

Circe by Madeline Miller

This is the story of Circe, the sorceress from the Odyssey. It sounds fascinating and I’ve had it for a while, so I’m looking forward to reading it.

A Thousand Ships by Natalie Haynes

The story of the women at the heart of The Trojan War. Yes, another Trojan War story. It’s a pretty famous conflict.

Lore by Alexandra Bracken

Some of the ancient gods rebelled, now every seven years they must walk the world as mortals, only to be hunted by ancient enemies. This one just sounds good, and, bonus, a friend of mine really liked it.

Ariadne by Jennifer Saint

Ariadne is the sister to the famed Minotaur of Crete. This is her story. The minotaur isn’t a story that gets told enough, so it will be fun to read this one.

Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan

The half human son of Neptune goes to a camp for other half human children of the Greek pantheon. I’ve wanted to read this one for a while, basically ever since I saw the movie, which I have since learned is a very bad interpretation of the books.

And there you have it, my TBR for the month of August. Here’s hoping I can finish all of these!
