She brought her mouth close to his ear. “My name is Celaena Sardothien,” she whispered. “But it makes no difference if my name’s Celaena or Lillian or Bitch, because I’d still beat you, no matter what you call me.”

Day 11 - Underrated Book
These books don’t get enough recognition for what they are. Strong women, and women of color that are main characters. They embrace sexuality, and the love interests aren’t the main focus of the story.
Lady Assasins, Monsters, and Queens. Pretty bad ass.

Mythology | Iris 

Iris was the ancient Greek goddess of the rainbow, connecting the gods above to mortals below as a messenger of the Olympian gods. She was often identified specifically as Hera’s (the queen of the gods) handmaiden and personal messenger. Since Iris’ father was a marine-god and her mother a cloud-nymph, she was also associated with the sea and sky.

Many Greeks believed that the rainbow’s arc, connecting clouds and the sea, represented Iris’ path or journey as she went from her home above to collect water from the sea in order to replenish clouds that had rained. [x]
