I finally finished the Percy Jackson series a few week ago and in honor of me finally getting myself together (and being kinda sad that the series is over) I thought it would be fun to do the Greek Gods tag, originally created by Zuki @ Book Bum.
Zeus: King of the Gods – Your Favorite Book
Wow, so glad we started with an easy one! To avoid my brain spontaneously combusting I went with the classic favorite fall back, Harry Potter. There are plenty of other books I call my favorites, but it’s just too hard to pick.
HERA: QUEEN OF THE GODS – A BADASS FEMALE CHARACTER
I know that everyone loves Inej – I do too! – but Nina Zenik is one of my all time favorite badass women.
JANUS: GOD OF BEGINNINGS – YOUR FAVOURITE DEBUT(S)
ATHENA: GODDESS OF WISDOM – YOUR FAVORITE
Call the Midwife by Jennifer Worth is one of my favorite non-fiction books of all time. I started watching the TV show when it first came out years ago (I’m a PBS junkie) and finally got around to reading the first book in the trilogy last year.
APHRODITE: GODDESS OF LOVE – A BOOK YOU ADORE
AND RECOMMEND EVERYONE READ
I will forever push Code Name Verity. I don’t care if you don’t like historical fiction or WWII settings, YOU NEED TO READ THIS BOOK!!
HADES: GOD OF THE UNDERWORLD – AN EVIL BOOK YOU WISH DIDN’T EXIST
There aren’t any books that I wish didn’t exist. There are definitely some books I didn’t enjoy, but one reader’s least favorite is another reader’s most favorite.
POSEIDON: GOD OF THE SEA & EARTHQUAKES – A BEAUTIFUL & GROUND BREAKING BOOK
Love Comes Softly isn’t just a beautifully written story, it was Janette Oke’s first book. Her writing carved out the inspirational historical fiction genre. She paved the way for so many authors (like me!) and really changed the way historical fiction was written.
APOLLO: GOD OF THE ARTS – A BEAUTIFUL BOOK COVER
Cherokee America was the book cover that made me stop and gawk most recently.
HYPNOS: GOD OF SLEEP – A BOOK SO BORING YOU ALMOST FELL ASLEEP
If I find a book boring, I’ll immediately stop reading it. I have no problem putting a book down two pages in if I feel like I’m not going to like it, so I don’t have an answer for this one.
HERMES: MESSENGER OF THE GODS – A BOOK YOU SPED THROUGH
The Journey of the Heart book series has six books and all clock in at just at 100 pages. I flew through the whole series in just a few days!
