Hello from the other sideeeeeeeee. Pretty sure I've ascended to book heaven because TODAY is Damaged Like Us release day, and it's in my kindle library looking all gorgeous, calling out to me like a siren. To be absolutely honest, life took over since the fall and my excitement for this book after finishing Some Kind of Perfect was only average. Not that I wasn't anticipating it because HECK YES we're diving into the lives of the Addicted kids and I'll cling to this era as much as I did the first! It wasn't until Krista and Becca starting announcing news and updates for DLU that it hit me like a freaking truck. I'm so hyped, I'm flying. I won't be able to start right away but still. IT'S. HERE. DLU. IS. LIVE. It is a happy day! *gets out cake and ice cream*

I have never read Homer's Iliad or The Odyssey, but not because I didn't want to. It's been on my to-be-read list for eons now. Any Greek mythology knowledge I have comes from movies like '300', 'Percy Jackson' and 'Hercules' (*sings* Who put the 'Glad' in 'Gladiator'? Herc-u-les!). Basically, I know very little! And despite having an interest in mythology and historical fiction, I've read very few of the genre. This book was recommended to me by my trusty Fizzle Reads book pushers, and I'm kicking myself for not diving right in. The Song of Achilles was both lyrical and enchanting—I couldn't turn the pages fast enough.
