My daily Goodreads email has just alerted me to the fact that the Kindle edition of The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller is on sale for $1.99 until July 31. This book is GORGEOUS and GLORIOUS and TRAGIC and I LOVE IT and I promise you will love it too. It’s about Patroclus and Achilles and friendship and love and the Trojan War, and it will make you feel so many feelings. Here’s what is probably my favorite quote:

When he speaks at last, his voice is weary, and defeated. He doesn’t know how to be angry with me, either. We are like damp wood that won’t light.

GORGEOUS!!!
