The book of the month: Circe

On this occasion, I want to share with you my enthusiasm for "Circe" by Madeline Miller who by the way is the same author of "the song of Achilles".


This novel plunges us into the fascinating world of Greek mythology, focusing on the story of Circe, a goddess with unique magical abilities.

Madeline Miller writes in a formidable, light and agile way, giving voice to a character often underestimated in myths. His pen takes us through captivating adventures, exploring loneliness, power and authenticity.


The story is based on the myth of Circe, the sorceress of the island of Eea, known for transforming men into pigs. However, Miller presents us with a more complete and human version of Circe, exploring its motivations and challenges.


Although I have just started reading this book once again, like its predecessor "the song of Achilles", it has caught me from the first page. Miller's fresh and authentic style makes these old stories come to life and imagine them with perfectly possible and feasible human faces.


Published in 2018, "Circe" has conquered hearts with its mixture of mythology, magic and well-developed characters. Immerse yourself on this literary journey that will make you learn more about the Greek gods and their stories!

I was in tears even before playing the video! Recently started watching Bluey and to be honest I am saviouring every episode, making sure not to rush through them. Luce as a kid would have love it too! Without all the sometimes extreme drama cartoons such as "Candy", "Peline" and the anime series called in Spanish "La Ranita Demetan" displayed. I also remember feeling sad and stressed after watching some of them...But Bluey is so not like that. I am sure this is appreciated by kids and parents equally. Cheers to all healthy, innocent and non invasive copying mechanisms! And thanks for sharing this one! 😍
