The Women of the Trojan War

I love the idea of telling stories of the women of antiquity and specifically the women of The Trojan War has become a popular topic recently so I jumped at the chance to pick up A Thousand Ships.

Overall it’s a good book. I enjoyed it I just find myself almost bummed (don’t know if that’s the right word) that the women who stand out so brightly in this book are the ones with the stories that always have.

Promising Young Woman

I have been trying to write a review of Promising Young Woman for a week. I ended up loving the film (to be honest it was one of my most anticipated so perhaps that’s not a surprise) but not only did it leave me crying it left me really questioning what I had wanted out of it to begin with and why.

So the first part is going to be spoiler free but I do have to talk about spoilers. I need to purge my thoughts on this one and why I think it works exactly as intended to but understand why people feel differently.
