February Book of the Month

I decided that I need to read more and Jenners over at Life with Little One recommended this book a few weeks back and I decided I would give it a go.  I enjoyed Lottery (which was a previous Jenners recommendation) so I thought "Why Not".
I'm so glad that I did.  It was so imaginative.  Basically, it answers the question--After Jesus started gaining popularity and had throngs of followers, what happened to the Greek gods and goddesses?
The book is written by a first time author and she can paint a vivid picture
Artemis, for example, the goddess of hunting, the moon, and chastity, is forced to become a dog walker and Aphrodite, the godess of beauty, is a phone sex operator.  Once you figure out the distinct personalities of all the characters, including the unlikely mortal heros, you will thoroughly enjoy this book.
I'm taking on quite a challenge for March.  I'm going to attempt to read Wicked .  After seeing the musical earlier this month, I just have to find out more.
In other business:  Shannon over at Inkhearts won our birthday/Harry Potter contest. Shannon watch your email for your cool prize.

Lets do a book swap! You send me Gods Behaving Badly and I will send you Wicked. Then we can review them on our blogs! What do you think? And thanks for the super cool prize, I cannot wait to spend it! Tell Greta I said thanks.
