At B&N Reads Brittany Bunzey tagged ten top books centering women in mythology, including:
Stone Blind: A Novel

Bringing an empathetic and nuanced eye to a woman long villainized, Natalie Haynes gives us Stone Blind, a look into Medusa’s story. Telling of a vulnerable woman who was exploited by a man in power and then blamed for his transgressions, Hayne’s book breathes new life into this monstrous tale, making Medusa’s story relatable in the present. Wonderfully modern and heartbreakingly relatable, Stone Blind will keep you statue-still from the first page to the last.
