So, recently, I have discovered that I have great skills in the art of hair dyeing.
Now, I know that everyone said to not dye or cut your hair during the quarantine, but I have. 12 times in fact. I am sitting on my bed typing this up with a clementine white claw and grey dye in my hair.
Why am I mentioning this? Because I’ve had plenty of 30-40 minute increments in which I have to sit up, with my hair awkwardly piled on top of my head. Most would say that they would watch a movie or catch up on their latest show binge. Not me. I’ve been reading.
I decided that I was going to read a certain amount of books this year in order to keep busy. Well that started a lot earlier because of this whole COVID-19 situation, clearly along with the hair dyeing. I found a comic on WebToons that I was instantly drawn to: Lore Olympus, or the very wonderfully drawn story of Hades and Persephone. This of course became my new obsession, so automatically I found all the YA adaptations of Hades and Persephone and I BINGED THEM ALL.
My favorite series out of all of them was the trilogy by Kaitlin Bevis: Persephone, Daughter of Earth and Sky, and The Iron Queen. It was a modern day adaptation of the love story that I felt truly encapsulated what was important, love and a whole lot of magic. It was brilliant. The flow worked well, the storyline was not too monotonous, and the characters were enjoyable.
So the next time you too are sitting down wearing the foulest-smelling substance on your hair, I say give it a try! 🙂
