At long last Liv Albert has a book coming out. Liv is the host of my number one favorite podcast Let’s Talk About Myths, Baby!

The podcast is wonderful, fascinating, funny and feminist so I can’t recommend it highly enough + it’s all about myths (mostly about Greek mythology). I love it so so so so much! From the podcast I know that Liv has wanted to publish a book forever and next year it’s finally happening. She was asked to write this book on Greek mythology (and it’s going to be illustrated by Sara Richard!) but I also know she’s working on a different book and from what I know about it it’s going to be fiction but also based on a myth. But back to this book, knowing Liv I just can’t imagine this book is going to be anything than amazing and hilarious as fuck so hell yes I can’t wait for it!

    Fuck yes indeed — I actually think this could make all the Greek retellings and the like that are about make more sense too. Also, if you ever find a modern Greek retelling you like, let me know.

    • If it’s anything like how Liv does her podcast then it’s just gonna be one of the best 2021 books! And I have quite the list of Greek myth retellings. 😛
