Good morning my loves!
I hope you’ve had a swell week and are looking forward to some lovely things this weekend. As for me, tomorrow I shall be finishing off my Christmas shopping and on Sunday, Mother Bear and I are spending the day at the spa… if my flu has gone by then *cough cough*.
Anyway, I digress. Today’s post is one that I really, really enjoyed writing. Of late, since reading The Song of Achilles actually, I’ve become a huge fan of Greek Mythology. Having then come across this tag, I just knew I had to do it!

Zeus – your favourite book
Yeah, this won’t be a surprise at all. It was always be Harry Potter for me. It’s super nostalgic and is like a comfort blanket for me now.
Hera – a badass female character
I’ve read so many books recently with real badass females in it, I think I’ll go for Clementine from Snowglobe by Amy Wilson. While she is scared of the adventure she is about to embark upon, she shows so much bravery. I love her.
Janus – your favourite debuts
Oh my lord. I’ll try and keep this quick because I’ve read so many incredible debuts this year; The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle by Stuart Turton, The Silent Patient by Alex Michaelides, Beasts of Extraordinary Circumstance, Tilly and The Bookwanderers by Anna James, An Unremarkable Body by Elisa Lodato, The Water Cure by Sophie Mackintosh, The Tattooist of Auschwitz by Heather Morris, The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller (of course!) and The Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi. Okay. Sorry. I’ll stop now!
Athena – your favourite non-fiction book
Again, I’m just going on this year because the list will be as long as the one for the last question otherwise! Ill Be Gone in the Dark by Michelle McNamara , I Am I Am I Am by Maggie O’Farrell and All That Remains by Sue Black.
Aphrodite – a book you adore and recommend everyone read
AHHH, SOO MANY TO CHOSE FROM! I think I’ll have to go with The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle by Stuart Turton, Tilly and The Bookwanderers by Anna James and If Only I Could Tell You by Hannah Beckerman.
Hades – a book you wish didn’t exist
My go to answer for these types of questions is always, and probably will always be, Talking to Psychopaths and Savages by Christopher Berry Dee. Don’t waste your time. Seriously.
Poseidon – a beautiful and ground-breaking book
I think it has to be The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas for this one. This was one of the first young adult books that I read that covered the topic of racism and police brutality in such an honest way. It wasn’t glorified nor was it glamorised. This book was just utterly brilliant.
Apollo – a beautiful book cover
Okay, I’m going to go for the most recent book I’ve purchased and that is The Writers Map: An Atlas of Imaginary Lands by Huw Lewis Jones. This book is gorgeous both inside and out. So, after having enough of looking at the cover, fear not, because the inside is just as spectacular.
Hypnos – a book so boring you almost fell asleep
I think this is Salt by David Harsent. While I really do enjoy poetry, this one could put an insomniac to sleep…
Hermes – a book you sped through
The first one that comes to mind for this question is the Geek Girl Series. I have flown through the ones that I have already read and should imagine that I fly through the ones to come!
And there we have it! The Greek Gods Book Tag. Now, there are so many people I would love to see doing this tag that I couldn’t possibly tag you all. sooooooooo, I TAG EVERYONE!
Peace and pages
