Jenny Lawson has done it again. She is fearless, funny and deep about her life and I absolutely love her for it. If you haven't read any of her books before I encourage you to do it - she's a unique voice. My wish for us to be best friends still stands...! HAHAHA!

Title: Ariadne: A Novel

Comments: 

Oh the tragedy! the drama! the horror! the heartbreak of it all!  The gods show their ugly sides and the women are in full force in this amazing retelling of Ariadne’s story. So many of the famous show up - Daedalus and Icarus, Theseus, Minos and the Minotaur of course!  Hippolytus, Dionysus and his maenads - it’s a huge cast all tripping over each other with the drama that only gods and their vengeful games can create. And out of it all is this blazing human story of sisterhood and sadness that rages even in the eyes of Medusa — highlighting the cost that all the women have paid. Best book I’ve read in 2021!  I hope Jennifer Saint will write many more books.
