Circe by Madeleine MIller

Circe is a witch banished to an island by her father Helios – Titan god of the sun. Circe is smart, self-reliant, resilient and uses all her wits to survive her banishment. You don’t even need to know much about Greek mythology but I found myself reading about the various gods whose deeds Circe continuously thwarts. I found myself rooting for her at every turn. A great read!
