A story from the POV of Noah's wife during the great flood. I love books that take silent observers in old stories and turn them into living, breathing characters. Send me more! #MSWL (especially from stories/myths that are non-Western!)

Okay, I never go into a Greek myth story and expect it to be happy... but wow. I shed FLOODS of tears reading this. A brilliant, dark, gripping book about the forgotten women of the Trojan war. It's a dark read, but definitely worth it. I LOVE books that retell myths! #MSWL

I thought this would be a light memoir about wine and working in the restaurant industry... instead it was a visceral memoir about Victoria's life and her time in the restaurant industry... the horrors and joys of it. I couldn't put it down. #MSWL restaurant-industry memoirs!
