Hi everyone! This is Julia of The Broke and the Bookish, formerly blogging on my own at The Competitive Bibliomaniac.
I read mostly historical romance, but can often be found reviewing paranormal romance, young adult books (mostly distopian/fantasy), fantasy/sci-fi, classics, and the occasional non-fiction book about languages.
Feel free to follow and reblog!
This book sucked the big one. I had such high hopes for a retelling of some Greek myths. But you know what, it wasn't even close to anything I know about the myths. She must have just used the names so it looked like they tied in.
And you know what? I knew that this was going to suck going in. I knew it. I am not really disappointed in this book, I am disappointed that I have never really read any good Greek Myth retelling books. I read a decent amount of the Dark-Hunters series before it started to get so achingly repetitive that I couldn't ignore it anymore. But I wouldn't consider that a retelling... just an expansion.
So does anyone had any recommendations for a good retelling of Greek or any other mythos? Persephone/Hades would be amazing but seriously I will take anything. Give me all your recs!
