Greek mythology has been a passion of mine since I was little.  The Odyssey is one my favorite reads.  I've kind of hit a slump when comes to books set around Greek mythology, but I have high hopes for this one!

So what is everyone else not really not so patiently waiting to read?  


  1. This one isn't really my cup of tea but I sure hope you get the chance to read and enjoy it :-). Here's my WoW if you'd like to stop by my blog.

    1. Thanks! Maybe if I get through my current stack I can reward myself with this one.

  2. I love Greek mythology so thanks for the heads up about this book. Hope you enjoy it!
