During this time of social distancing and online learning, Mr. Sixta and I are taking part in the #BooksConnectUs campaign to share with you the things we're reading independently at home!
This week I finished a novel called Circe by Madeline Miller. This book tells the story of a witch from ancient Greek mythology who was an important character in The Odyssey by Homer. The Odyssey is one of the oldest stories we still read today! In Circe, we hear the story from a different character's point of view. I thought the characters were very interesting and the writing was really engaging! I love reading about ancient mythology and stories that have magic in them, and this was a perfect mix of both!
