Greek Mythology Book Tag
I think this tag was created by Flip That Page but please let me know if I’m wrong! As I’ve just finished Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief, this seemed like the perfect tag.
Zeus // God of the Sky and Thunder // Favourite book.
This is a really, really hard question but Harry Potter is probably the series I’ve re-read the most.
Poseidon // God of the Seas and Earthquakes // A book that drowned you in feels.
Both A Little Life and The Song of Achilles were very emotional reads for me.
Hades // God of the Underworld // Favourite book with a dark/ominous plot.
I reread The Shining every Halloween and plots don’t get much darker than this one.
Hera // Goddess of Marriage and Family // Cutest fictional couple.
Simon and Blue from Simon Vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda are one of the most adorable fictional couples.
Athena // Goddess of Wisdom and Battle Strategy // Series with the best world-building.
The detail in the world-building of Game of Thrones is so complex that I have to choose that. I’m trying not to pick the same book more than once otherwise Harry Potter would have been a contender.
Aphrodite // Goddess of Love and Beauty // Most beautiful cover.
The Bear and the Nightingale will always be my first choice for this prompt.
Ares // God of War and Bloodshed // Most violent book you’ve read.
One of the most disturbing and gratuitously violent books I’ve ever read was American Psycho. It was absolutely horrific and I’ll never reread it.
Hephaestus // God of Blacksmiths and Flame // Scorching hot swoon-worthy character.
It’s got to be Rhysand from A Court of Mist and Fury for this one.
Artemis // Goddess of the Hunt and Virginity // Favourite kick-ass heroine.
A recent kick-ass heroine I loved was Amani from Rebel of the Sands. She’s skilled with a gun, brave, and so capable. She also has a great character arc.
Apollo // God of Light and Healing // Sequel book that redeemed its series.
I had some problems with the female representation in Red Rising but Golden Son completely redeemed this series for me. It’s so refreshing to see an author correct their mistakes.
Hermes // Messenger God of Thieves and Commerce // Book with the best message.
I think The Hate U Give is an example of a recently published book that carries a powerful political message that is relevant now more than ever.
Hestia // Goddess of the Hearth and Home // Book with the most relatable story.
A recent character I really related to was Kiko from Starfish.
Demeter // Goddess of Agriculture and Fertility // Favourite bookish setting.
I know I’m trying not to give the same answer but who doesn’t dream of going to Hogwarts?
Dionysus // God of Wine and Celebration // 2018 book you’re most anticipating.
There are a few books I’m really excited for but my top 3 are The Winter of the Witch, My Plain Jane and Muse of Nightmares.
Feel free to consider yourself tagged if you’d like to have a go at this one.
