It is encouraging to see so many participants reading mythology this year. Although I have just finished my first mythology book this year, I reviewed a few more books from the Canongate myth series last year.
My personal project was to read all the books in the series, so far I have read this:
- The Penelopiad, Margaret Atwood
- Dream Angus, Alexander McCall Smith
- Where Three Roads Meet, Salley Vickers
- Girl Meets Boy by Ali Smith
- Weight by Jeanette Winterson
- Lion’s Honey by David Grossman
As soon as I finished The Penelopiad I attacked the Canongate Myth series with rigour. My favourites are Ali Smith’s Girl meets boy and then comes The Penelopiad. The individual books in the series is easy to read and can be finished in one sitting.
I have two more books on mythology that I hope to finish this year.
They are bit more chunky and I hope I’ll read them soon.
All the very best of luck everyone! and have a great summer! 😉
