I've been learning about Greek Mythology in the last week! I've read a couple fiction novels based on Greek Mythology that's lead to me doing some research into the origins of some of the characters and stories. There are SO many gods and goddesses that it's easy to forget some of them or their specific roles. I've been reading about Persephone, Hades, Thanatos, Demeter, and a lot of the minor characters, too.
