I just love Madeline Miller's writing style, in general. The way she finds that compromise between re-introducing characters from old classics while still bringing something new to the table is always so creatively done and this book is no exception--Circe, as a character, is incredibly well-written and a very captivating protagonist.
Adorable art and an even more adorable series. I loved absolutely everything about Nick and Charlie's story, which may be one of the most cliché high school romances ever but is still utterly heartwarming and constantly rejuvenated by the emotional intelligence of its main characters throughout the entire series.
Oryx and Crake
Set in the aftermath of a devastating environmental apocalypse, but with plenty of flashbacks to the times before it happened, this is an excellent dystopian sci-fi novel that perfectly exemplifies Atwood's prescient and thought-provoking writing style. This book honestly works as a standalone piece, but for anyone wanting to delve further into the story, there are two other books in the series.
