Greek Mythology Tag

12:00 PM


Most of you might know already how much I love greek mythology, so when I saw this post at Nicka @ Read by Nicka's blog, I knew that I had to do it, even though no one tagged me for it. It's greek myth guys, I can't just skip by it :D

ZEUS (JUPITER): GOD OF THE SKY AND THUNDER / KING OF THE GODS
Favorite book (choose your own category!)

CLOCKWORK PRINCESS by Cassandra Clare. No surprise here. I've said it so many times and I'll said it again, Clockwork Princess is my favorite book EVER. It's a rollercoaster of emotion from beginning to the end, and I'm a mess after reading it. It was also the greatest hangover I've ever had.

HERA (JUNO): GODDESS OF MARRIAGE AND FAMILY
Cutest book couple

PERCABETH aka mother of all otp. It's really cute seeing their romance develop from friendship, how ignorant Percy is and how ridiculous they were when they were 11 <3

POSEIDON (NEPTUNE): GOD OF THE SEAS AND EARTHQUAKES
Book that drowned you in feels

CLOCKWORK PRINCESS. I mean, Jem dying??? Will actually died??? War?? Magnus freaking Bane??? Will risking everything for Jem??? NOTHING IS OKAY IN THIS BOOK FOR MY HEART.

ATHENA (MINERVA): GODDESS OF WISDOM, HANDICRAFT AND STRATEGIC WARFARE
Series with the best world-building

THE GRISHA TRILOGY by Leigh Bardugo. Ravka is based from Russia but I'm really in love with it. The description makes the world realy vivid, the usage of Russian names and addition of folktales from every region makes Ravka even more real.

HADES (PLUTO): GOD OF THE UNDERWORLD
Favorite book with a dark / ominous plot

THE UNBECOMING OF MARA DYER by Michelle Hodkin. This book is really dark. There are deaths everywhere, and the atmosphere is also pretty tense. Mara is an unreliable narrator, so we have no idea if it's a figment of her imagination or if it's real.


APHRODITE (VENUS): GODDESS OF LOVE AND BEAUTY
Most beautiful cover on a 2016 release

STRANGE THE DREAMER by Laini Taylor. No explanation needed guys, just look at it. It's the US cover and while the UK cover is also gorgeous, I just like the US one more!

ARES (MARS): GOD OF WAR AND BLOODSHED
Most violent book you’ve ever read

THE KNIFE OF NEVER LETTING GO by Patrick Ness. Bad shit just keep happening to our main characters. From beating, stabbing, shooting, hanging, burning. You mentioned it, this book has it. {my review}


HEPHAESTUS (VULCAN): GOD OF BLACKSMITHS AND FIRE
Scorching hot swoon worthy character

Um.. Idk. It's been a while honestly since I fell deeply madly in love with a character...

ARTEMIS (DIANA): GODDESS OF THE HUNT AND VIRGINITY
Favorite Kick-Ass Heroine

Shahzrad. She married the killer king for revenge. Her sharp tounge and cunning mind help her navigating her life through enemies and friends alike. She stopped the killing and stopped a war. She also really cares about the people, not just her inner circle. {my review}


PHOEBUS APOLLO (APOLLO):GOD OF LIGHT AND HEALING
Sequel book that redeemed its series

IGNITE ME by Tahereh Mafi. I'm okay with Shatter Me, and didn't like Unravel Me (except for chapter 62. we all like it). The writing style really grates on my nerve and Juliette needs to get her head out of her neck. Thankfully, Juliette becomes the badass women she meant to be in Ignite Me, and there are tons of action for me to stay invested.{my review}

HERMES (MERCURY): MESSENGER GOD OF THIEVES AND COMMERCE
Book with the best message

WONDER by R.J Palacio. The message of this book is really uplifting guys. Most people are mean, but we could also see that people can be supportive and acceptive too. And children has the biggest tolerance of us all. Hate is taught, it doesn't came out of nowhere. {my review}

HESTIA (VESTA): GODDESS OF THE HEARTH AND HOME
Book with the most relatable story

CRAZY RICH ASIANS by Kevin Kwan. I'm not crazy, and I'm not outrageously rich ike the characters in this book, but I'm asian and the way the people behave, the language, slangs, food, it's really relateable to me. I know all those things by heart. {my review}

DEMETER (CERES):GODDESS OF FERTILITY AND AGRICULTURE
Favorite bookish setting


DIONYSUS (BACCHUS): GOD OF WINE AND CELEBRATION
2016 release you are most anticipating

CROOKED KINGDOM. Dear Leigh Bardugo, PLEASE DONT KILL ANYONE.

  1. I agree with all your answers! Clockwork Princess is THE BEST ever! All the feels, all the fluff, eep! Oh yes The Knife of Never Letting Go is really violent. Nearly every chapter has someone dying, or blood. I also can't wait for Crooked Kingdom, but I'm really scared too! I'm 100% certain someone will die, and I hope it isn't any of my favourite ones! Great answers and thanks for tagging me! :)

  2. Oh - I could not agree more with your thoughts on WONDER. I am so delighted that it is getting the hype it deserves in the MG & YA communities; its message is endlessly gorgeous, and I don't think it would be an overstatement that all of us could benefit from a (re)read and a good soul-searching session afterwards. The way we treat people like Auggie seems so overlooked in society, and a book that looks at that mistreatment in the eye, unflinching yet lovely all the same, is priceless. Thank you for sharing, friend. xx

    1. Yes omg! I read it so long ago and wonder why it wasn't hyped up in the book community, but I'm glad now people are starting to talk about it! It should be a required reading in school, because it would teach children to treat people better. I'm pretty sure it would be the kind of book that could make the children see things in different way.
