Gods Behaving Badly

Gods Behaving Badly was excellent. I'm a sucker for the gods/mythology translated to modern times genre (witness one of my favorite books ever, Good Omens), but this was especially well done. And from a debut novelist, too, Marie Phillips. (Whom I'm afraid I have a bit of a crush on now, dang brunettes...)Basically the story of the Greek pantheon of gods, whose power has diminished and are living in a rundown house in central London, and what happens to them when they inadvertently get mixed up in the affairs of a couple of mortals who are trying to fall in love. It's funny, smart, sexy, sweet and did I mention funny? I chuckled, I laughed out loud, I giggled, I think I laughed every way I can think of. Well, maybe I didn't guffaw. I won't admit to guffawing. Great book, though.

Book 94

That DOES sound like a good book! I think I might've been pulled in by a cover like that too. I'll have to keep my eye out for that one... :)

Brunettes, eh? Better watch out- I hear most of 'em bite!
