Hello everyone! Time for another book tag! I have always been a huge Greek Mythology nerd, so even though I wasn’t technically tagged by anyone I knew I had to fill this out when I first saw it over at My Tiny Obsessions! This tag was originally created by Flip That Page and I had a great time coming up with answers!
Zeus (Jupiter): God of the Sky and Thunder / King of the Gods
Favorite book (choose your own category!)
This is a question that I am never able to answer! There are so many books I could use for this, but I think I’ll go with my current favorites Carry On by Rainbow Rowell and Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo. There are honestly so many things to love about these book (I honestly can’t choose which one is my absolute favorite!)
Poseidon (Neptune): God of the Seas and Earthquakes
Book that drowned you in feels
Again, there are so many books I could use for this! Stuff like The Serpent King and Mockingjay come to mind, but I think I’m going to say Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare, because that book completely destroyed me.
Hades (Pluto): God of the Underworld
Favorite book with a dark / ominous plot
I think I’m going to say “The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey. This book is so well written, but it is also insanely dark. I’m currently reading the third book in the series, and I think I’m probably going to need to read something light and cute afterwards!
Hera (Juno): Goddess of Marriage and Family
Cutest fictional couple
I know I already used this book, but I have to go with Simon Snow and Baz Pitch from Carry On by Rainbow Rowell! Everything about this paring is absolutely beautiful and adorable and I will never shut up about how much I love it!
Athena (Minerva): Goddess of Wisdom, Handicraft and Strategic Warfare
Series with the best world-building
The world building in “An Ember in the Ashes” by Sabaa Tahir is so good! You can visualize everything about this world so well! (even though it’s pretty messed up.)
Aphrodite (Venus): Goddess of Love and Beauty
Most beautiful cover on a 2016 release
Have I ever mentioned how much I love the cover of Passenger by Alexandra Bracken? Because I do. So much.
Ares (Mars): God of War and Bloodshed
Most violent book you’ve ever read
I was going to say The Hunger Games, but I think I’m going to go with Light by Michael Grant. It’s a great book, but it’s also has probably the highest major character body count I have ever read (pretty much everyone you love dies horribly, but I do highly recommend the series.)
Hephaestus (Vulcan): God of Blacksmiths and Fire
Scorching hot swoon worthy character
I’m going to go with Rowan from the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas!
Artemis (Diana): Goddess of the Hunt and Virginity
Favorite Kick-Ass Heroine
I know I just used this series, but I have to go with Celaena from Throne of Glass! She’s such a great, well developed character and I absolutely love the series!
Phoebus Apollo (Apollo): God of Light and Healing
Sequel book that redeemed its series
I can’t really think of a book that “redeemed its series”, but a sequel I definitely loved was Never Fade by Alexandra Bracken. I absolutely loved the first book in The Darkest Minds series, and the second book expanded on the series so well (and added some characters that I love!)
Hermes (Mercury): Messenger God of Thieves and Commerce
Book with the best message
Going with The Fault In Our Stars by John Green!
Hestia (Vesta): Goddess of the Hearth and Home
Book with the most relatable story
Definitely Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell! I don’t think I have ever related to a book more!
Demeter (Ceres): Goddess of Fertility and Agriculture
Favorite bookish setting
I’m going to go 100% cliché here and say Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry from Harry Potter!
Dionysus (Bacchus): God of Wine and Celebration
2016 release you are most anticipating
There are so many, most notably Empire of Storms, Gemina, A Torch Against the Night, and the one I think I am the most hyped about: Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo. I need to know what happens!
Well that’s about it for the Greek Mythology Book Tag! See you next time and thanks for reading!
