Very enjoyable, but I don't think it'll be one of those books that I think about now that I'm done.
Gianna and 2304 other people liked Emily May's review of Circe:
Circe by Madeline Miller
"
“Witches are not so delicate,” I said.

I absolutely loved this. If you enjoy Greek mythology, complex heroines, and a generous serving of adventure, bloodshed, betrayal, magic, and monsters - both literal and figurative - then hell, READ THIS BOOK.

Where the Forest Meets the Stars by Glendy Vanderah
"There’s a reason (or two or three) why Where the Forest Meets the Stars is an Amazon bestseller. It’s special! ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐

So special, in fact, I’m unlikely to forget this story or its characters.

Joanna has had her share of trauma and grief. As a..." Read more of this review »

This book would have been a great short story. Too much as a novel though.

Fragile Things by Neil Gaiman

This is the only novel by Neil Gaiman that I actually dislike. It seemed like he realized that it had been too long since he published a novel, so he looked at his writing desk, gathered a few things he had been working on but weren't good enough to ...more

Alice Hoffman
“The craft was dangerous and unpredictable, and witches were difficult to control, for they had minds of their own and didn’t hold to keeping to the law.”
Alice Hoffman, The Rules of Magic

J.K. Rowling
“Words are, in my not-so-humble opinion, our most inexhaustible source of magic. Capable of both inflicting injury, and remedying it.”
JK Rowling, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

Marvin Bell
“Learn the rules, break the rules, make up new rules, break the new rules.”
Marvin Bell

Henry David Thoreau
“I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived. I did not wish to live what was not life, living is so dear; nor did I wish to practise resignation, unless it was quite necessary. I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life, to live so sturdily and Spartan-like as to put to rout all that was not life, to cut a broad swath and shave close, to drive life into a corner, and reduce it to its lowest terms...”
Henry David Thoreau

Stephen King
“Both Rowling and Meyer, they’re speaking directly to young people. … The real difference is that Jo Rowling is a terrific writer and Stephenie Meyer can’t write worth a darn. She’s not very good.”
Stephen King
