The Silence of the Girls No More

The Silence of the Girls

The Silence of the Girls

Grade: A

“None of that gives him the right to take another man’s prize of honor. It doesn’t belong to him; he hasn’t earned it.”

There was a lot more, but I’d stopped listening.┬áHonor, courage, loyalty, reputation- all those big words being bandied about- but for me there was only one word, one very small word: it. It doesn’t belong to him, he hasn’t earned it.”

It is our narrator Briseis. Actual person. Not it.

Wonder Woman Warbringer

Warbringer

Warbringer

By: Leigh Bardugo

Grade: B

This Wonder Woman tale by one of my favorite authors was definitely on my most anticipated lists. So I picked it up immediately upon its release last week and I have to say I’m a little torn. The story is about how a teenage Diana saves a girl from drowning but that girl is a blood descendant Warbringer. Not will she bring war she tends to cause conflict and strife wherever she goes and her presence on the island is destroying it.
