The Greek Mythology Tag!

I'm so happy that Erin @ The Book Archive tagged me to do this because Greek Mythology is my sh*t! Alright, let's get started:

Zeus- God of the Sky: Favourite Book of Your Own Category

I'm gonna choose historical fiction for my category and say that Salt to the Sea by: Ruta Sepetys is my new favourite! This book was educational, and yet so harrowing, upsetting, but so important. It gave me new insight on an event that I didn't even know existed.

Hera- Goddess of Love and Fertility: Favourite Book Couple

OBVIOUSLY Pynch from the Raven Cycle! Adam and Ronan were so precious, I could go on and on.

Poseidon- God of the Sea: Book that Drowned you in Feels

It wouldn't be a tag without mentioning Harry Potter, so I'm gonna say Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows! The last book was so emotional and shocking.

Athena- Goddess of Wisdom and Handicraft: Series with the Best World Building

I think that the Divergent series had amazing world building that was completely screwed up in the movies!

Hades- God of the Underworld: Book with a Dark Plot

The Perks of Being a Wallflower had a lot of dark themes and heavy material, but was still amazing nonetheless!

Aphrodite- Goddess of Love and Beauty: 2016 Release with the Most Beautiful Cover

The Thousandth Floor has such a stunning cover! Look at it, just LOOK AT IT!

Ares- God of War: Most Violent Book you've Read

I'm gonna say that An Ember in the Ashes by: Sabaa Tahir was just BRUTAL. AMAZING, but so harsh.

Hephaestus- God of Blacksmiths: Scorching Hot Character

While we're on the subject, Elias Veturius from An Ember in the Ashes is a STUNNER.

Artemis- Goddess of the Hunt and Fertility: Kick ass Female Character


Apollo- God of the Light and Healing: Sequel that Redeemed a Series

Unravel Me in the Shatter Me series was so much better than the original that I actually learned to love the series!

Hermes- Messenger God: Book with the Best Message

The Outsiders by: S.E. Hinton. What I took from this book is incredible.

Hestia- Goddess of the Home: Book that's the Most Relatable

Fangirl by: Rainbow Rowell hand's down! I swear this is a book on my life.

Demeter- Goddess of Agriculture: Favourite Bookish Setting

I would say Hogwarts but that's OBVIOUS, so instead I'll say Cabeswater from the Raven Cycle. It's such a magical, mystical forest.

Dionysus- God of Wine and Celebration: Anticipated Release

I CAN'T WAIT for Veronica Roth's new series!

That's it! I'm tagging:

Lais @ Harumansae Books 

Thanks again, Erin!

Emily @ Paperback Princess


  1. Yes to almost all of these. And I totally agree with Unravel Me; it was so much better than Shatter Me.

    1. I know, right?! I hated the Adam/Juliette dynamic in Shatter Me

  2. Thanks for the tag! Note to self: read Perks. ;)

  3. We were contemplating doing this tag, but then somehow or the other ended up forgetting all about it :D I haven't read ANY book by Rainbow Rowell yet, but Fangirl seems to be almost everyone's favorite. I miiight pick it up sometime soon :D HP and the Deathly Hallows is the perfect pick for a book that drowned me in feels too! Arghh. Loved this post, Em!

    1. You have to read one of Rowell's books! They're so witty and fun, but also very romantic. This was a very fun tag to do :)
