Diverse 2018 TBR // 3rd quarter update

Hey everyone! How are you today? Can you believe 3/4 of the year has already gone by? It’s yet again time to give you an update on my 2018 TBR! This was it:

2018 tbr 3rd quarter check-up

Not bad, ey? I’ve already read nine books on the list, one of which was in the third quarter! This means I have three months left to read three books. I can do that, right?

The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller

I really liked how the author reworked the Illiad in this book. I was familiar with the story, although I haven’t read it myself. (I’m going to start the ancient Greek version soon!). This was the main reason I decided to read this novel and I’m glad Miller delivered. I really didn’t like Achilles though, which made that I enjoyed the book a lot less. On the other hand, I was a fan of Patroclus and Briseïs. Overall, I was disappointed that I didn’t love this book nor cried. I had different expectations. Ultimately, I gave this 3.5 out of 5 stars.

If you want to find my previous check-ups and thoughts about the following books, click here and here.
