REVIEW: The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller

Most of my reviews this year have been non-fiction as I've been focusing a lot of increasing my understanding and knowledge base. However, half way through the year, I hit a wall.

A Tightly Woven Tale of Three Women

Welcome back, my glorious readers. Today, I am continuing with my Pride Month festivities as I review Michael Cunningham's The Hours. Before reading this book this past week, I had seen the movie that was created from it. At the time, I was on a bit of a Nicole Kidman kick, so this was one …
