Great Translation- Still Don’t Like Him

The Odyssey

Homer/ Translated by: Emily Wilson

So I decided to reread this solely because of the translation- apparently the first in English by a woman. Also because I was in a serious Black Sails mood and had sea-faring pirate vibes going.

Having read a messy, broken hard to follow translation in college (or high school? I just remember being annoyed) I thought I’d give this a go. It’s a great translation but man I still hate Odysseus and his son!

The Midnight Library

The Midnight Library

By: Matt Haig

I think everyone has regrets of some sort big or small. Nora Seed however gets the chance to live all the lives she could have in an effort to save the one she doesn’t want anymore.

Matt Haig’s The Humans is one of my favorite books period and the synopsis of this one just spoke to me. I couldn’t even wait for a stateside release. Had to preorder from book depository.

Totally worth it.
