*Top Ten Tuesday* Books I Want to Read Because I'm in a Mythology Retelling Phase

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Joood - Hooligan of Platypire reviews bossed me into doing this, so I guess this is a thing I do now. 

This week’s theme is books for people who liked Author X (where I obviously pick an author to build a suggestion list around). Well I won't be doing that because I suck at that kind of thing. I read a lot, but unless there's a pretty obvious similarity between stories I read, I don't relate books to each other, and I certainly don't have the brain capacity to put together a whole 10 book list of books that would be good to dive into if you liked one particular author. Instead, I'm going to feature ten books I want to read because I'm currently in a mythology retelling reading phase that started because The Shadow of Perseus by Claire Heywood was amazing. So here we go. 

Athena's Child by Hannah Lynn

Meduso by B.J. Irons

The Maiden and the Unseen by Jeanette Rose and Alexis Rune

Labyrinth of Shadows by Kyla Stone

Thief of Spring by Katherine Macdonald

Atalanta by Jennifer Saint

Nostos by Konstantinos Kapotsis

Electric Idol by Katee Robert

Pandora's Jar by Natalie Haynes

Ariadne by Zenobia Neil

There we go. Ten mythology retellings that I want to read because that's the phase I'm going through right now. I do own two of them, so I am likely to read a whole 20% of this list in maybe the near future. But if we're being honest here, I'm probably going to find a new hyper-fixation theme soon and won't end up reading any of them for a hot minute. 

Do any of these look good to you? Wanna make a guess on which two of these books I already own? If you're stopping by from the linkup, please leave a link to your post below so I can repay your visit this weekend when I have time to sit down and do that. - Katie
