Ariadne: A Beach Read Myth Retelling

I must admit I only really knew the story of Ariadne through who she’s connected to. Mainly the Minotaur (not one I ever really knew either) and Daedalus and Icarus.

So when I picked this book up thinking to just try a chapter I was drawn in fast. It’s a pretty readable book. Ariadne is like a good beach read myth retelling. While nowhere near as lyrically drawn it has some shades of Circe as well.

How to Nail an Adaptation: Shadow and Bone

If the unnamed HBO abomination taught me anything it’s that I am a character person at least with the stories I connect whole heartedly to so for me a great adaptation has to get the character right.

Not the look of the character either because everyone will see that differently but the spirit and oh my gosh Shadow and Bone did such a good job with that. It was beautiful.

The damned show even made me like Mal.
