Greek Mythology Book Tag

Greek Mythology Book Tag

I have always been fascinated by Greek mythology and studied classical civilisation for one of my A Levels. So when Umairah @ Sereadipity tagged me for the Greek Mythology Book Tag, I had to do this! If my googling is correct, this tag was originally created by Jasmine @ Flip That Page.

Zeus: God of the Sky and Thunder, King of the Gods

Favourite book

pride-and-prejudice

If you correctly guessed Pride and Prejudice, then you can read me like a book. 😊

Poseidon: God of the Sea and Earthquakes

A Book That Drowned You in Feels

the hate u give

The Hate U Give took me on an emotional rollercoaster. The film adaptation also tugged at my heartstrings.

Hades: God of the Underworld

Favourite Book with a Dark/Ominous Plot

To Kill a Kingdom

I’m currently reading To Kill a Kingdom and this is the first book that sprang to mind! It’s a dark retelling of The Little Mermaid with sirens and pirates, and I am loving it so far.

Hera: Goddess of Marriage and Family

Cutest Fictional Couple

Heartstopper Volume 1

Nick and Charlie from Heartstopper! ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜

Athena: Goddess of Wisdom, Handicraft, and Strategic Warfare

Favourite Intelligent Heroine

harry potter and the prisoner of azkaban

I agree with Umairah on this one! When I first read the Harry Potter books as a child and teenager, Hermione taught me that it’s okay to be smart.

Gaea: Mother Earth

Favourite World-Building Book

a game of thrones

The world-building in A Song of Ice and Fire series is amazing. It’s so detailed and richly imagined.

Aphrodite: Goddess of Love and Beauty

Most Gorgeous CoverWarcross

Warcross by Marie Lu is shiny and beautiful! 😍

Ares: God of War and Bloodshed

Most Violent Book You’ve Read

Carrie

I don’t read a lot of violent books, so this is a tricky prompt! Probably Carrie by Stephen King. As you can see from the cover, there is a lot of gore in this one.

Hephastus: God of Blacksmiths and Fire

Hottest Book You’ve Ever Read

Who's That Girl

I feel like romance has taken a back seat in my reading this past year, even though it’s one of my favourite genres. I’ll go with Who’s That Girl? by Mhairi McFarlane which is relatively hot! 🔥

Artemis: Goddess of the Hunt, the Moon, and Virginity

A Heroine Who Doesn’t Need a Man to Save Her

gonewiththewind

Scarlett O’Hara from Gone With Wind. Initially, she is a spoiled Southern belle who manipulates men and wants what she can’t have. But Scarlett learns that she doesn’t actually need a man to save her.

Apollo: God of Light and Healing

A Book That’s an Exception to a Genre You Don’t Usually Like

gone girl

I don’t usually read thrillers, but one that I really liked and recommend is Gone Girl. It’s a compelling story, complete with unreliable narrators.

Hermes: Messenger Gods of Thieves and Commerce

A Book that Stole Your Heart

the outsiders

So many books have stolen my heart, but if I had to choose one, it has to be The Outsiders, aka the original YA novel.

Hestia: Goddess of the Heart and Home

A Book You Go Back to for Comfort

little women

I tend not to re-read books, but one which I have re-read is Little Women. This is a delightful classic and I’m looking forward to watching the new film adaptation, starring Saoirse Ronan, Emma Watson, Florence Pugh, and Eliza Scanlen.

Demeter: Goddess of Fertility and Agriculture

Favourite Bookish Setting

Harry Potter

I adore a well-written and imaginative fantasy setting. It’s an obvious choice, but one of my favourite bookish settings is the magical world J.K. Rowling created in Harry Potter.

Dionysus: God of Wine and Celebration

Book You are Most Anticipating in the Next Year

One of Us Is Next

I loved One of Us Is Lying by Karen M. McManus and can’t wait to go back to Bayview with One of Us Is Next!

Hecate: Goddess of Witchcraft, Magic, and Ghosts

Favourite Magical Book

ella enchanted

For variety, I’m going to pick another book besides Harry Potter haha. Ella Enchanted is a wonderful reimagining of Cinderella. The main character, Ella, lives in the magical kingdom of Frell which is home to ogres, fairies, and more.

Nemesis: Goddess of Divine Retribution

Favourite Revenge Story

a storm of swords 1: steel and snow

There’s a lot going on in George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series, and Arya’s revenge story is quite something. You do not want to be on her list!
