Hi everyone! I’ve been seeing the Greek Gods book tag floating around, which was created by the awesome Zuky. I love the prompts in this one so I decided to give it a try!
Also, I’ve noticed that whenever I do book tags, I’m rarely able to stick to just one recommendation per prompt – is that against the rules?! Oh well, the more I add to your TBR the better, right? 😉

- Use Zuky’s graphics if you want to – but equally, you don’t have to use them
- Tag as many people as you want, but please, share the love
Zeus: King of the Gods – Your favourite book
My standard answer when I get asked this question tends to be Wuthering Heights/The Book Thief. I can’t choose between the two because they’re both so different.
Hera: Queen of the Gods – A badass female character
The Unnamed Midwife, Kate ‘Puck’ Connolly, and Daenerys Targaryen are the ones that instantly spring to mind.
Janus: God of Beginnings – Your favourite debut
It’s impossible to pick just one. These are a few 2018 debuts I’ve loved!
Athena: Goddess of Wisdom – Your favourite non-fiction book
I don’t tend to read a lot of non-fiction because it feels too much like studying – and I’m already doing enough of that for my diploma! But Matt Haig’s take on mental health is always amazingly relatable and I think these books should be required reading for everyone.
Aphrodite: Goddess of Love – A book you adore and recommend everyone read
I don’t really have books that I will blanket recommend to everyone because we all have different tastes. But these three are books that I consistently name when people ask me for a dystopian, fantasy or historical fiction recommendation!
Hades: God of the Underworld – An evil book you wish didn’t exist
Poseidon: God of the Sea and Earthquakes – A beautiful and ground-breaking book
More Than This is such a brilliantly unique book that really moved me. In fact, everything I’ve read by Patrick Ness has been pretty ground-breaking and beautiful.
Apollo – God of the Arts – A beautiful book cover
I feel like I always pick the same books for the beautiful cover prompts so here are some I haven’t featured as often!
Hypnos: God of Sleep – A book so boring you almost fell asleep
This one has not aged well at ALL.
Hermes: Messenger of the Gods – A book you sped through
I flew through all three of these and definitely recommend them!
Well, there you have it! I hope you’ve found some new books to add to your TBRs 😉 I don’t know who’s done this tag and who hasn’t so if you’re interested, consider yourself tagged! X
