I’m currently reading The Satyricon by Petronius and I think it might be the funniest book I’ve ever read. •

The story follows Encolpius, his previous lover Ascyltus, and his current slave and lover Giton. Just your average gay love triangle. I’d call it an adventure story of sorts. It’s very nonsensical and satirical.. Which makes it the absolute best. •

THIS is why I’ve chosen Classics as my field of study. The story is satirical and strange, but something about it gives you a glimpse into what Roman life was like. By no means is it a 100% accurate depiction of life back in the 1st century CE, but it gives you an idea when it comes to certain aspects of daily life. It transports me right there while I’m reading it. I’m so sad that not all chapters of this book has survived, but what has survived is amazing. I’m falling in love with the Romans, HARD. I used to be a Greek loving girl, but the Romans are my jam now. I love them. Did I say I love them? • 
Do you like Roman literature? Greek? Love them both? I know there’s not that many of you that are into this type of stuff, but if you are, I’m very interested in hearing what you have to say! •

Alexander Mosaic at the National Archaeological Museum in Naples. The video shows the House of the Faun in Pompeii, where a replica is now where the original mosaic was found..

Being on bookstagram has become increasingly more difficult the past few months, as most books I’ve read are either on kindle or audio. I don’t really know how to talk about or review them without a picture that makes sense to post alongside the text. I’m not really sure how this happened.. I have at least 20 unfinished books on my shelf that I feel weird talking about without having read the whole thing. I guess I’m just struggling to find a balance. •

These books here are the perfect example of my eclectic reading life. I will unexpectedly start reading several at one just to gather information about a certain subject. For instance, yesterday I was looking for information on marriage in ancient Rome, preferably from a females point of view, so I pulled out these books. I feel like I don’t read like most people on here, so I’m having a hard time figuring out how to talk about my reading. If you like seeing what I’m currently reading and what I’ve read recently, please add me on goodreads, and you’ll get fressssh updates. I sometimes update too much while reading. Sorry💁🏻‍♀️ (there’s a link to my goodreads account in my bio btw!) •

I’m reading The Secret History whilst I’m away, because The Priory of the Orange Tree was way too huge to bring with me. But I’m really enjoying this one. It seems to be the perfect read for Rome and it’s making me interested to know more about classical studies.

Today we found a bookshop around the corner from our hotel. Aside from selling a lot of books in Italian, there was a tiny English section. It had classics for €3.60 which we thought was too good not to utilise, so we bought four books between us. I haven’t read many classics, but I hope to change that. Do you have any to recommend?.

Guess who’s going to University to get a degree in Classical studies? This lady!🙋🏻‍♀️ Anyone who knows me knows that this is a pretty big deal for me, I’ve had such a love affair with Ancient Rome and Ancient Greece for many years now..🖤I can’t believe I get to do this, actually get an education. I’m so thankful. I’m so happy. I’m excited for the future, for academia, I’m excited to learn! .

I just wanted to share this happy news with all of you, and I thought it was very fitting to use this photo of a Mary Beard book.. I’m so excited!!! 🏺 .

Going to be really real here, I 100% ordered this book based entirely on title and dustjacket after seeing it on @swiftfootedachilles feed. 🙊😹 It arrived the other day and has been in quarantine until I could determine there was definitely no hidden bookworms inside. It seems safe enough so I’m really excited to look through it soon! My copy sadly came without a dust jacket but its title page has the same lovely illustration. 🙊🐞 Feat. Achilles from @polywaxpotions — use my code SOPHOCLES10 for a discount!

I began reading Grief Lessons whilst making lunch earlier... “Why does tragedy exist? Because you are full of rage. Why are you full of rage? Because you are full of grief” — this single line has moved me and changed my outlook in ways that I cannot even put into words. It’s raw truth and cut deep into my soul as I see myself in it. Looking at it in this way makes me wonder if I could do anything but love Euripides because I am full of rage, full of grief and tragedy is a light in the darkness - making you feel you’re not alone. #currentlyreading #euripides #annecarson #grieflessons #classicist #classicsstudent #classicalstudies #bookstamums.

When you’re trying to run a house, be good parent, be a good friend, train for a marathon, hold down two jobs well, keep an allotment going, do yoga, watch Buffy, keep yourself looking half decent, eat well, date and study. 
Sometimes the bath bubbles just disappear.... 🧖🏽‍♀️🛁🧘🏽‍♀️
