After a quiet March and April, May saw a surge in mythology books reviews. I’m excited by this and hope that everyone, including myself, will ourselves to read more books on myths and do some catch-up before the end of the year!
In May we see the following reviews published:
- Jessicabookworm (Percy Jackson and the Sea of Monsters – Rick Riordan)
- The Books of My Life (Graceling by Kristin Cashore)
- Jessicabookworm (Percy Jackson and the Titan’s Curse – Rick Riordan)
- The Books of My Life (The Replacement by Brenna Yovanoff)
- Col Connolly- Ahern (The Penelopiad)
- Bellezza (The Penelopiad by Margaret Atwood)
- Bina (The Penelopiad)
- The Story Girl (Haroun and the Sea of Stories by Salman Rushdie)
- JoV (The Lion’s Honey By David Grossman)
Jessica @ Bookworm Chronicle read a few more books in Percy Jackson series and Bellezza and Colleen organised The Penelopiad read-along. The read-along ignites the fire to pursue the Canongate Myth series project that I did last year but have been left cold for awhile, until I picked up The Lion’s Honey. The Lion’s Honey is an analysis of Samson’s psyche and of his action leading to Delilah’s deception at the end of it. I would like to read a few more books from the series, what came to my mind next is Baba Yaga lay an Egg and Binu and the Great Wall by Su Tong. I am also intrigued with Haroun and the Sea of Stories as I couldn’t recall Rushdie wrote a book of this title!
Don’t forget to hop over to two of Kah Woei @ The Books of my life reviews on her blog!
Although I said it’s a May wrap-up post, let me introduce you to a few more reviews since Bina last did her wrap-up in February 2011….
In April, Kristin reviewed the second book from the Seven Kingdoms trilogy. The book question if it is possible to love someone and be beloved by that person, though the person we love can be unkind or even cruel to others? Read this and find out!
Thank you so much for participating and hope to see more of your reviews coming in!
