Amelia's Book Room: Aphrodite's Blessings

As you know, I've been way into the Percy Jackson series, which involves the Greek Gods and myths. So, when I saw Aphrodite's Blessings on the shelf while volunteering at the library, I knew I had to read it!

Clemence McLaren retells the stories of three young women of the Greek myths, whose destinies are all touched by the Goddess of love, Aphrodite. In Running From Love, we meet Atalanta, an oddly-raised princess who, instead of practicing embroidery and wearing traditional robes, is well trained in sports and prefers a man's tunic. She feels terrible when dozens of male athletes begin competing against her for the grand prize: if they win, they have her hand in marriage; if she wins, they are put to death. And Atalanta is too good!

The second tale focuses on the beautiful Andromeda, whose father has picked her a very unsavory husband, and in the final story, Psyche must venture into the land of Hades to earn her soul mate's love. If, like me, you recently finished Rick Riordan's hit series and you're hungering for some more Greek mythology, this is the book for you!

Don't forget, we're reading Carl Hiaasen's Scat this month for the Dekoposh Book Club, and will have a meeting to discuss it at the end of August. Happy reading, and don't let your busy new back-to-school schedules keep you from the books you love!
