Circe

by Madeline Miller


Circe takes place in the Greek mythology house of Helios, the Greek God of the Sun and the Oceanid Nymph Perse. From the moment of her immortal birth, Circe was unlike any of her fellow Greek Gods/ Goddesses/ Nymphs. Being not as naturally pretty that comes from being an immortal of having the voice of a goddess, she is quickly scorned and bullied among her peers.

Madeline Miller takes us through a thousand something years of Circe’s everyday life as she continues to grow and become her own person. We meet other mythological Gods/ creatures that follow closely to the original greek mythology tales. This is not a story to miss if you love mythology, romance, and fantasy!

Themes: greek mythology, romance, YA fantasy, historical fiction, magic

Stolen Fate

By V.T. DO


Blurb from Author:

Jace: For three months, I searched her out. For Him. Everything I have done before meeting her has been for him. Everything I have done after is for her. Perhaps it was all in Fate’s plan. Whatever it was, I can’t let her go. I don’t know how.

Evelyn: There’s no such thing as fate. Or Coincidence. My meeting Jace isn’t a coincidence, nnor is it at fate’s hand. It was him. I became defenseless in his eyes. I became someone I hadn’t been in. six long years, someone I was happy to be once more. I showed him all of my soft parts, thinking he was strong enough to protect it, protect me from the world. Am I wrong?

Themes: contemporary, romance, spicy, emotional rollercoaster

To Kill A Kingdom

by Alexandra Christo


I have to say, this was probably my favourite standalone that I’ve had the pleasure of reading in 2020. To Kill a Kingdom is a retelling of the classic Little Mermaid story.

It’s quite a dark YA fantasy, yet it has playful banter between the characters and of course a touch of romance and magic. This story was definitely a page turner for me and a book I would forever now recommend to people.

Themes: re-tellings, YA fantasy, mermaids/sirens, romance, magic, royalty, enemies to lovers
