I heard of Life Altering Beautiful by T.A. Hardenbrook from a book blog on facebook, and the cover caught my interest (gorgeous book cover). I started keeping up with the teasers T.A. Hardenbrook was posting about the book, and had to add it to my TBR pile. Now, I can't wait for it's release in August!
Title: Beauty's Daughter: The Story of Hermione and Helen of Troy
Author: Caroyln Meyer
Publisher: Harcourt Children's Books
Expected Publication Date: October 8, 2013
Description from Goodreads:
What is it like to be the daughter of the most beautiful woman in the world?
Hermione knows . . . her mother is Helen of Troy, the famed beauty of
Greek myth. Helen is not only beautiful but also impulsive, and when she
falls in love with charming Prince Paris, she runs off with him to
Troy, abandoning her distraught daughter. Determined to reclaim their
enchanting queen, the Greek army sails for Troy. Hermione stows away in
one of the thousand ships in the fleet and witnesses the start of the
legendary Trojan War. In the rough Greek encampment outside the
walls of Troy, Hermione’s life is far from that of a pampered princess.
Meanwhile, her mother basks in luxury in the royal palace inside the
city. Hermione desperately wishes for the gods and goddesses to
intervene and end the brutal war—and to bring her love. Will she end up
with the handsome archer Orestes, or the formidable Pyrrhus, leader of a
tribe of fierce warriors? And will she ever forgive her mother for
bringing such chaos to her life and the lives of so many others?
I will basically read anything that has to do with Greek Mythology, because I love Greek Mythology :D!
