Ghost Boys is a devastating novel. It will grieve you in the way our news cycle seems to be an unceasing parade of grief. But it is also hopeful, full of compassion, and a compelling case for the fact that "we can all do better, be better, live better." Jerome's story is heartbreaking, and the telling of it is necessary. Just as the telling of Emmett Till's story is necessary, though it so often goes untold.
Furyborn is the latest fantasy novel by Claire Legrand. When I first saw the blurb for this book I added it to my TBR and scooped up a copy as quickly as possible.
"Two queens will rise. One with the power to save the world. One with the power to destroy it."
That’s all I needed to hear to know I had to read this book!
The story is told in two points of view, that of Rielle Dardenne and Eliana Ferracora, two fierce women living more than a thousand years apart.
Madeline Miller’s Circe was a fantastic way to end a rather difficult year for me. I have to say that when I first opened the cover and began to read, I had no idea I would find myself completely immersed. Ancient gods and goddesses come to life in this book. Heroes are no longer blurry outlines in old stories but living, breathing characters rich in color. Circe was a name I’ll admit I had forgotten. She was no more to me than a witch who turned men into pigs and helped Odysseus on his journey home.
