This is Your Sign!

Hello, hello and happy Friday! Today I want to share with you a post I came upon while doing some blog reading. The Book Raven is a blog I have been following for a while and I absolutely love it! The post I am reblogging today is about trust, signs, confidence and finding courage 🙂 Check it out!

The Book Raven

I see this a lot on the inter-webs. Posts, images, and descriptions saying this is your sign! Your sign to go out and do that thing that you’ve been procrastinating about. Your sign to ask out that certain someone that has caught your eye or to reconcile with someone you thought you lost.

Considered the best fiction book of 2018, Circe is certainly not one to miss! I’ve read it last year in December but it would be impossible for me to just skip it here. Although it wasn’t love at first word, as it happened with The Bear and the Nightingale a little later, this book made it up on my favorites list.

The story revolves around Circe and her life throughout the centuries. For those who are not familiar with the stories and legends of the Olympus – you should read the books though, they make for a nice and entertaining evening read – Helios took as consort Perse, an Oceanid nymph, daughter of Oceanos (one of the three thousand…) and together they had four children that stood out: Aeetes, Perses of Colchis, Pasiphae and Circe. Circe was a nymph, a lesser god, and she was also different from her…
