Yes, Circe is the only one I've read from that list, but to be honest I'm not sure if Eclipse will like it...
It's just ok in balance, with a poor first half and a good second half.

So I just had basically a full week of social interactions. Being a massive introvert, I expected to be mentally put out for several days or maybe even the rest of the week, but after one day I'm actually feeling way better than expected. A couple of years ago, my current mental state would have been "vacant" and all my effort would be spent getting back to normal and staying vigilant that my state of low energy didn't sidle into a depressive episode. But yesterday I not only managed to recover quite well, but also did some stuff around the house and got some reading done. I had zero expectations on that day except for resting up.

My many years of building positive habits and learning to read the signs of my mind are beginning to pay off. It certainly hasn't been easy, but it's important to remember that all that effort pays off. I still work on mindfulness, vigilance, and prevention nearly every day, but each little trick and method slowly becomes a habit and requires less energy. I know it will never go away completely, but it's good to know that it does, slowly, get easier.

Is that because you see me as a Goddess.

It was because Circe was the only book I've heard about ;D I think it was Bea who read it.

Thank you, Sadly I was working, but got some books and book vouchers and may celebrate at the weekend.

I think it was @ScarletBea who once told me when I did a similar exercise on my blog that I read some odd books.
;D you're right, I did!
Although that conclusion might be due to: location (many of these books might be easily available in Australia while rare on the other side of the world), age (if I was consciously reading fantasy in the 80s and 90s I might recognise way more than I do) and plain individual taste and book availability.
The internet has made it much easier to find books, old or new, irrespective of where they were originally published. I’ve read a fair bit of DAW’s material, despite them not having an Australian distributor. I am lucky to have a good speciality store; Minotaur Books, accessible, but I am envious of those in the UK who have the Waterstones chain and when we found Forbidden Planet in London that was like stumbling into Aladdin’s cave for us.

I was torn. Circe is very good, but I went for Theodora Goss’ take on classic horror characters.
