Circe by Madeline Miller

Greek Mythology | Fiction | Fantasy

393 Pages


You guys, I LOVED THIS BOOK SO MUCH that I’ve been afraid to write a review for it. (I read it in December 2018.)

I included this book in my Best of 2018 list, but it definitely deserves a post of it’s own.

I was fascinated by greek mythology when we studied it in school, but I haven’t heard much about it since I left high school behind 12 years ago. For those of you, like me, who don’t remember much of what they learned in school… Circe is the lady from the Odyssey who turns sailors into pigs when they visit her island.

But wait, there’s more. There is so much more to her story and I absolutely loved the way that Madeline Miller told her story. I am a fan for life!

If you have any interest in greek mythology, witchcraft, strong females, strong mothers, or conflicts involving gods and/or monsters… this is a book you are sure to enjoy.

You must read it. Circe is such a beautiful, complex character and the cameos of other famous greek characters was like a delicious dessert after an already delectable dinner. It was, honestly, just awesome.

Did I mention that I loved it?

      1. That’s so cool to hear! I personally enjoyed the character interactions more in Song of Achilles, but I think Circe is a more impressive writing endeavor. 😛 Same, Madeline Miller’s prose is just to die for! ❤
