Zeus

ZEUS – King of the Gods: your favourite book

Wow, what a way to start a book tag! No pressure or anything!

I don’t think I have an overall favourite book but these are my top 2, in fact just thinking about it I think I might make a post about my top 5 favourites.

adsadsadsdividerarrowleftfeatureThe Golden Door (The Three Doors Trilogy #1) The Final Empire (Mistborn, #1)dividerarrowrightfeature

The Golden Door // The Final Empire

These are two of my favourite fantasy books, I was going to talk about my favourite contemporary novel as well but this was supposed to be a single book answer and I’m already cheating.

The Golden Door is that book I read when I was 12 and I loved it but never really appreciated how ingenious it was and so didn’t continue the trilogy. But then I picked it up again randomly 4 years later and boy, was my mind blown! The Doors trilogy is probably my favourite trilogy of all time. Crazy, right?

And then we have The Final Empire, who hasn’t heard of this book. TFE is probably my favourite first book in a series. I cannot not praise these books, so I urge you guys to pick them up. I know The Golden Door is middle grade and that TFE is terrifyingly large but they are soo worth it!

Hera

HERA – Queen of the Gods: A badass female character

adsadsadsdividerarrowleftfeatureThe Lightning Thief (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, #1) My Lady Janedividerarrowrightfeature

Percy Jackson // My Lady Jane

Annabeth Chase (PJO) and Lady Jane Grey (MLJ). If you have read these books you cannot sit there and tell me that these ladies are not badass. With Annabeth it’s a given, she’s more badass then half of Camp Half-Blood put together (okay, that’s an exaggeration but you get the point). And then there’s Jane, at first she’s just a bookworm who just wants to read but as the story goes on she really stands up for herself and at one point I’m pretty sure she’s fighting people off with a pan, Tangled style.

Janus

JANUS – God of Beginnings: Your favourite debut(s)

ssdividerarrowleftfeatureSimon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda First & Then Charm & Strangedividerarrowrightfeature

Simon VTHA // First & Then // Charm & Strange

I love all of these books but I think that Simon is definitely my favourite, in fact I would go as far  as to say Simon is my favourite contemporary novel, that being said I haven’t read Albertalli’s new novel yet.

First & Then is also a really cool novel, it’s a modern adaptation of Pride and Prejudice and I LOVE it! It’s a really light and fun read that I totally recommend if you’re ever in a reading slump.

Charm & Strange is definitely not a readathon or reading slump read, it’s something you need to be focused on and you really need to be in the right mood to read. You really do need to be prepared for a really heavy plot and you should probably have some tissues on standby.

Athena

ATHENA – Goddess of Wisdom: Your favourite non-ficton book

adsdsadsadsadsadsdividerarrowleftfeatureEating Animalsdividerarrowrightfeature

Eating Animals

This book is seriously amazing. This is the book that got me into non-fiction, and I cannot recommend it enough.

Aphrodite

APHRODITE – Goddess of Love: A book you adore and recommend everyone read (other than your favourite book!)

Uggghhh, I really want to recommend The Golden Door but I’ve already used it! 😭

dividerarrowleftfeatureAmazing X-Men, Volume 1: The Quest for NightcrawlerAll the Truth That's in Me Fahrenheit 451dividerarrowrightfeature

Amazing X-Men Vol 1 // All The Truth That’s In Me // Fahrenheit 451

If you are a comic lover like myself, than you should totally pick up Amazing X-Men, it’s a really fun pirate filled volume and you guys should definitely pick it up!

I haven’t read All The Truth That’s In Me in years but I do know that I started it on a whim at like 1am a few years ago and was up until 6 finishing it! It’s a really intense and hard-hitting novel so I would recommend not starting it at 1am but it is a really amazzing read (again, have tissues on standby).

And then there’s Fahrenheit 451, the book that everyone knows about and everyone says you shoudl read. But for real, you should read this.

Hades

HADES – God of the Underworld: An evil book you wish didn’t exist

addsdividerarrowleftfeatureCity of Bones (The Mortal Instruments, #1) Carve the Mark (Carve the Mark, #1) Look Who's Backdividerarrowrightfeature

TMI // Carve The Mark // Look Who’s Back

Okay, so I know that basically everyone loves The Mortal Instruments but I hate it.  I absolutely cannot stand this series, I completely detest the characters and honestly I don’t like talking about it – basically the show is 1000x better.

Carve The Mark is a given. I will never read this. And now folks, let me tell you about Look Who’s Back, a lovely comedy about Hitler coming back and living in the 21st century. Because who wouldn’t want to read this, right?

Poseidon

POSEIDON – God of the Sea & Earthquakes: A beautiful & ground-breaking book

Originally I didn’t have an answer for this question. I wasn’t sure if it meant ground breaking for everyone or just me. And I wasn’t sure I had even read any books I thought were ground breaking.

But then I really thought about it, and I think that Eating Animals definitely had an impact on me.

Eating Animals

I know it’s a repeat but it’s honestly the only book I could think of. I loved this book, and I wasn’t even expecting to make it through the first chapter, I am not a non-fiction reader and this really got me interested in the genre. Also, just the topic this book is on is really eye-opening and I really think everyone should read it, or at least think about why someone would spend years researching and writing this book.

Apollo

APOLLO – God of the Arts: A beautiful book cover

adsadsadsdividerarrowleftfeatureHenry Hoey Hobson The Hidden Oracle (The Trials of Apollo, #1)dividerarrowrightfeature

Henry Hoey Hobson // The Trials of Apollo

Look at these books and try to tell me you don’t love the covers. These books, along with the covers are amazing! HHH is one of my favourite middle grade reads and The Hidden Oracle is a new favourite of mine!

Hypnos

HYPNOS – God of Sleep: A book so boring you almost fell asleep

addsadsadsdividerarrowleftfeatureFinnikin of the Rock (Lumatere Chronicles, #1) 172 Hours on the Moondividerarrowrightfeature

Finnikin of The Rock // 172 Hours

Aaaah, these two books, on one hand you’ve got the high fantasy that will have you falling asleep and on the other hand you have the horror that is so predictable you will literally see everything coming because you’ve seen it all before.

Hermes

HERMES – Messenger of the Gods: A book you sped through

I really want to say Simon Vs The Homo Sapiens Agenda but I already used that.

adasdasdasdasdasddividerarrowleftfeatureAnya's Ghostdividerarrowrightfeature

Anya’s Ghost

This is a short graphic novel, Anya’s Ghost is a really realistic depiction of a young girl in high school. She doesn’t fit in at school and then one day she stumbles upon a friend only there’s something not so right.

  1. I’ve been wanting to read Eating Animals for a while, so it’s awesome to hear that you loved it! Two of my friends are vegan and one is vegetarian, so they’ve been trying to get me to read stuff like this for ages. Awesome tag! 🙂

    • Thank you! 😍 I think this is a really important novel but you should definitely prepare yourself before you read it, as it’s very hard-hitting. It took me just under a month to read because I really took my time with it, and though I’ve been vegetarian for almost three years now I still felt really disturbed even just walking down the meat aisle, so you may want to distance yourself from meat while you read it!

  2. Omg this is such a cool book tag. I’m definitely going to do this one.

    Also I’m really, really intrigued about Eating Animals. I recently became vegetarian (and drink soya milk) after doing a module on human-animal relations, and actually taking the time to learn about meat production, etc. I’m definitely going to look into the book so thanks for including it!

    • I just saw taht you did the tag, your answers were awesome!

      Eating Animals is a super hard-hitting book about the meat industry so you’ll be glad you don’t eat meat when you read it. It may be hard to read at times but it’s definitely worth it!

    • I loved Charm & Strange when I read it, and I totally consumed The Truth That’s In Me, so I hope you enjoy them when you get to them!!

      You should totally pick up Simon VS, I actually re-read it (for the third time whoops) last night and completely fell in love with Becky Albertalli’s writing all over again!

  3. Annabeth is SUCH an amazing character!! I have My Lady Jane on my TBR but had kind of forgotten about it? But now I definitely must read it haha, Jane sounds fabulous. OH and Simon vs!! One of my favourite books ever, oh my gosh. First & Then sounds so cute! I so want to read it. ❤

    • I agree, she is the ultimate badass! You should definitely read My Lady Jane, Jne is a really fun character and she is a bookworm just like us!
      I actually re-read Simon last night and I totally re-fell in love with Becky Albertalli’s writing.
      First & Then is a really cute book and I definitely recommend it if you need a cute love story to read in one sitting!
