Reading progress update: I've read 225 out of 410 pages.
Mythos: The Greek Myths Retold - Stephen Fry

The footnotes in this book are brilliant:

 

Aprodite lent Harmonia her girdle, a magical item of lingerie that had the power to provoke the most dizzying and rapturous desire.*

 

*i´m damned if I can find a convincing definition of "girdle". Some thinks it´s a belt, others a device more like a Playtex panelled support or corset - others yet have described it as a "mythical Wonderbra", Calasso calls it "a soft deceiving sash".

Halloween Frost

Halloween Frost (Mythos Academy #1.5)Halloween Frost by Jennifer Estep



I didn't know anything about the world of Mythos Academy because I have never read the first installment but it sounds like the protagonist Gwen Frost, is training to be a kickass warrior. I like it a lot. I picked it up because it is near Halloween.
Gwen's friend wants to dress up and go trick or treating but their fun was lost on a monster and that is just how it is at Mythos Academy. Fight and kill as many of those things as possible. However, the one she has a crush on saves her, yet again. O be still my heart. Her sword, Vic, can talk and has a mouth on him. It was a gift from some god. I need to work out the details guys so don't @ me. It looks like their bags of treats was lost on someone playing a mean trick on them.

Mythos: The Greek Myths Retold - Stephen Fry

Hermes eyed him quizzically. "You must be, let me see ... don´t tell me... Apollo, right?"

Not to be recognized was a new experience for Apollo and one that he found he didn´t quite like. Being spoken to in superior tones by a day-old baby was another on his list of least favorite experiences. He was about to crush this cocky little squirt with a cutting remark and possibly a swift right hook to the chin when he found himself facing a dimpled outstretched hand.

"Put it there, Pol. Delighted to meet you. Hermes, latest addition to the devine roster. You´ll be my half-brother. I think? Mother Maia here took me through the family tree last night. What a nutty bunch we are, eh? Eh?"

 

 

Hahahahaha...

He might not be my favorite Olympian, but I have a soft spot for Hephaestus.

// TA decides to pack light because, after all, she's only leaving for a 2-day business trip.  Then agonizes a half hour over which one of several 100 books on physical TBR to take on the trip. //

 

// Leaving home, finds book in mailbox that was delivered yesterday but which for reasons unknown she didn't immediately retrieve.  Pulls book out of envelope, discards envelope, and stuffs book into travel case. //

 

TA gets to airport:  "Oh, look, there's the book store I knew all the time would be there!"

 

// Buys four more books just because. //
