"I always say the truth is best even when we find it unpleasant. Any rat in a sewer can lie. It's how rats are. It's what makes them rats. But a human doesn't run and hide in dark places, because he's something more. Lying is the most personal act of cowardice there is." ---- The House of the Scorpion

There are so many editions of Harry Potter but when I saw Kazu Kibuishi's, I was all **grabby hands** and snapped them right up. Highly recommend his comics anthology series, Flight. 💙💙💙💙

...They took driftwood from a beach and gave them human shapes. Odin then gave them the breath of life, Vili gave them wit and emotions, and Ve gave them senses and speech. The first man and woman, Ask and Embla. The progenitors of the human race at Midgard.

... Вони взяли дерева, що прибилися до берегу і надали їм людські форми. Одін дав їм подих життя, Вілі дав їм розум і емоції, і Ве дав їм почуття і мову.  Перший чоловік та жінка, Аск(ясень) та Ембла(В'яз). Прабатьки людського роду в Мідгаді.

The shop is filled to the brim with beautiful well written books this week!
.
One of them is this stunner, Norse Myths Tales of Odin, Thor and Loki written by Kevin Crossley Holland and illustrated by Jeffrey Alan Love. Filled with tales of god's, giants, magic and even a bit of love this spectacular book is perfect for reading aloud as a family and suitable for lovers of Viking folklore and those just starting to explore Norse mythology alike.
.
.
"A collaboration by two talented creators provides the perfect means to delve into Norse mythology and pore over the enthralling exploits of all-powerful Odin; mighty Thor and his hammer, Mjolnir; and Loki, the infamous trickster. From the creation of the nine worlds to the final battle of Ragnarok, Carnegie Medal winner Kevin Crossley-Holland details the Viking gods as never before, while Jeffrey Alan Love’s lavish illustrations bring the mythic figures to life on the page. Readers will be caught up in the seesawing struggle for power between gods, dwarfs, and giants, punctuated by surprising love matches, thrilling journeys, and dazzling magic. With its well-researched, lyrical prose and its dramatic and powerful artwork, this wonderful gift edition makes the perfect book for both the staunchest fans of mythology and newcomers with no knowledge of Viking folklore "

What should you do when you've finished reading one of the 9 books you're reading? .
Pick up a new one. 🙊
.

Yes, so I just started reading Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman. Instagram ate my last caption and it is midnight and I have to write it again. 😫 .
.
I was as yet uninitiated in the Norse myths like many other Indians might also be. We have no dearth of our own mythologies to read. 😛 So, this retelling by Gaiman is not a "retelling" for me but an introduction to a new world of gods and giants. New heavens, new heroes. .
.
.
I haven't read Thor comics or watched the movie. But even the introduction had me hooked to the build up to the Norse world. Gaiman is telling a story like the readers are gathered around him under a tree on a summer evening. He asks the readers to read the story and retell it to others in your own words, that's the unique beauty of folktales and mythologies. This is my first Neil Gaiman book so I am extra-excited. .

I bought myself an iPad with my tax return so I could draw in bed. I'm also reading some Norse Mythology. So I present, a Fenris Wolf in progress. .

I am delving back into Norse Mythology now the little one is settled for the evening. I’m hoping I finish this tonight as I’m eager to read CoBaB. It’s so fun to be back with the Norse gods though, 💁🏼‍♀️🖤 #bookstagram #booklover #bookblogger #bookaddict #norsemyths #mythology #history #inkandwonderdesigns #bibliophile

Hello ! Nice to see you all ! I’ve been away for what feels like forever (in reality it is 2-3 months) but I am back. I’ve missed being in this community so much ! 🖤 I’m currently halfway through Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman (which I am loving) and have finished my second year of university (which means I get early summer break!). How are you all? What have you been up to? What are you reading!? Tell me everything ⚔️🖤 #bookstagram #bookblogger #booklover #fantasy #norsemyths #neilgaiman #currentlyreading #bookaddict #bibliophile

Nothing goes better with mead than Norse myths. @thomas.denmark published the most beautiful Norse bestiary book. If you haven’t checked him out you absolutely should. .

I'm starting to really like Norse mythology. The Asgardians/Aesir are so much cooler and better gods than those of Greek mythology, Christian mythology, etc.

I really need a new book shelf 😩 or to stop buying books.... 😂😂😂

It's been a slow reading week for me, instead I have been (trying) to be a good housewife and mother and actually have a clean house 🙈 it has not gone successfully 😅
🏺I did however finish The Song of Achilles! I really ended up enjoying this book (despite the amount of time it took me to read) and my review is up on Goodreads! 🏺 I have also started to read Beyond a Darkened Shore by Jessica Leake 🗡☺️

I will start with a caveat, I have loved all other #neilgaiman's books, like #stardust and #theoceanattheendofthelane, but i guess this just wasn't my cup of tea! This the great Norse Myths retold by Neil Gaiman. What did you think of #norsemythology? I would love to hear your thoughts! #bookstagram #holidayread #bookaddict #whattoreadnext #neilgaiman #norsemythology #bookshelf #mybookbelly #bookworm #booksofinstagram #bookaholic #ilovetoread #bookgroup #bookclub #allthingsbooks #happywhenimreading #books #norsemyths #myths #legends

Taking a moment to shout out indie booksellers. I live 2 hours away from any indie bookstore. When I found out that a few indie locations would be getting these beautiful posters alongside the paperback release of Neil Gaiman’s Norse Mythology I contacted a few indies I frequent. One of them was Fiction Addiction in Greenville, SC. I discovered Fiction Addiction a few years ago when Neil Gaiman released a select few signed first editions of View From the Cheap Seats and they so wonderfully shipped me a copy to save me the trip. Given our Gaiman past, I reached out to them again. They didn’t have them, but they would see if they could get them. Months passed. I reached out to a few more places with no avail. I’d given up on this bit of Gaiman-abilia. Today, I received a message from Fiction Addiction letting me know, after all of this time, that they were in if I was still interested. Needless to say, I dropped everything and roadtripped to Greenville to bring this beauty home (& browse their shelves of course). Support your indies, y’all. They get IT. Three copies of the same book, a poster, a scribbled name, they get it. Thanks @fictionaddictionbookstore! .
(And to @instagleam for chauffeuring me & @ijeffcoat0204 in heavy traffic)
