My Obsession with PRIDE AND PREJUDICE

PRIDE AND PREJUDICE is my favorite book, and I love most things Jane Austen.  I enjoy reading sequels and retellings of her novels and watching movies made from her works.  Well, I've come across a novel, that is making the rounds in the blogosphere called PROM AND PREJUDICE.  This book sounds really special.  I haven't read any negative feedback for it, and it has gone to the top of my wish list.  So, let me know what you think, if you've read it.  All opinions are appreciated.

Review of HERA: BOOK ONE OF THE GODDESS CHRONICLES

HERA:  BOOK ONE OF THE GODDESS CHRONICLES
Julien Longo
Fire Raven Press, 2010
ISBN:  978-0-9826489-2-6

Hera is living a fairly sedate life in a small village on the island of Atlantis, until her friend, Artemis, becomes injured in a hunting accident, and it becomes evident that she has untapped powers.  Hera's life changes rapidly, and she learns, that her parents have been keeping secrets about her heritage.  To further complicate matters, Hera meets and develops a crush on Zeus, who is rather power hungry.

HERA: BOOK ONE OF THE GODDESS CHRONICLES shows a different prospective of Greek mythology, than the male centric versions, that this reader is used to.  This book is told from Hera's point of view,and while at first, she seemed something of a brat, this book shows her growth and maturation into an admirable character.  I enjoyed Ms. Longo's take on Greek mythology and look forward to the next book in the series.  It was great to get the female side of things, because let's face it, females aren't usually portrayed in a very good light in Greek mythology, especially Hera.

Note:  I was sent this book in return for an impartial review.

Happy New Year and Resolutions

Happy New Year!  I've resolved to post more to my blog this year.  Hopefully, this is one resolution, that I can keep.  Last year, I resolved to lose weight.  Well, I wound up gaining.  I'm not a very good resolution keeper, but I have high hopes for this year.  Here's hoping I can make a dent in my TBR mountain.  Happy, happy New Year!
