Have you read Lovely War or is it on your TBR?
I love reading your Throwback Thursday posts!
Thanks Gina! 😍🙌
This has been on my TBR for too long! I am adding it to my February list.
I love your review!
Why are the Greek goda narrating a WW1 story👀
😂 It’s interesting!!
I haven’t read much on WW1, sounds interesting.
If you love Greek mythology you might love the story within a story!

It’s not a typical chick lit romance so you might be ok. I think you’d like the mythology!
