mini mention

CIRCE BY MADELINE MILLER

Fiction, Greek mythology and fantasy

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

squiggle

This just landed in our top-10 reads of all time. 

Rich in description and beautifully written, Circe is an absolute pageturner that anyone can read – no PHD in Greek mythology needed.

The biggest strength of this book is the character development.

When we first meet Circe, she is a young and naive nymph who is shunned by her family and longs to be loved. After a series of betrayals, a hardened Circe is fed by a strange mix of compassion and rage that aid her in becoming a powerful witch. 

Exiled to the island of Aeaea, the story moves from strength to strength as we discover more about the depths of Circe, the interconnected nature of other Greek myths and the power that love, heartbreak, motherhood and pain can play in your life.
