Book Survey – Greek Mythology Style

So I dug deep, you guys… I was looking for an interesting book tag to give you guys and couldn’t find any recent book tags that we haven’t done here on Thrice Read before… So I went back in time, all the way to 2014 to dust this gem of a book tag off.

It was created by Flip That Page and I found it on Dreamland Book Blog, based off of the Percy Jackson series, this book tag features two of my favorite things: Greek mythology and book tags. So here goes nothing!


Gods of Olympus

Zeus (Jupiter)

God of the Sky and Thunder / King of the Gods

Favorite book (choose your own category!): This is a difficult question no matter what category I choose! I think I will go with A Court of Mist and Fury because it really is my favorite book right now. No beating around the bush, nothing.

Poseidon (Neptune)

God of the Seas and Earthquakes

Book that drowned you in feels: So many books make me ugly cry, but I think I will go with The Sun is Also a Star. It really just had so much going for it and it really made me feel all sorts of things.

Hades (Pluto)

God of the Underworld

Favorite book with a dark / ominous plot: In a Dark, Dark Wood by Ruth Ware was a great dark book. It didn’t completely pull me under to the darkness and I really enjoyed reading it!

Hera (Juno)

Goddess of Marriage and Family

Cutest fictional couple: Shazi and Khalid from The Wrath and the Dawn!

Athena(Minerva)

Goddess of Wisdom, Handicraft and Strategic Warfare

Series with the best world-building: Throne of Glass. Adarlan is such a fascinating world and I’m so waiting for the connection Prythian, Maas.

 

Aphrodite (Venus)

Goddess of Love and Beauty

Most beautiful cover on a 2017 release: have to give this to Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor. That cover really is beautiful!

Strange the Dreamer

Ares (Mars)

God of War and Bloodshed

Most violent book you’ve ever read: I think An Ember in the Ashes really surprised me with the levels of violence that occurred in it.

Hephaestus (Vulcan)

God of Blacksmiths and Fire

Scorching hot swoon worthy character: Rhysand, Rhysand, Rhysand…

Artemis (Diana)

Goddess of the Hunt and Virginity

Favorite Kick-Ass Heroine: Let’s talk about how much I love Nina from Six of Crows. I loved her since day one and she really proved herself for me throughout both books!

Phoebus Apollo (Apollo)

God of Light and Healing

Sequel book that redeemed its series: A COURT OF MIST AND FURY. This book made me go back and change the rating I gave to A Court of Thorns and Roses because I saw what Maas was doing with the first book…

Hermes (Mercury)

Messenger God of Thieves and Commerce

Book with the best message: I’m really no good at seeing the hidden message in books… I think I will go with Furthermore though because it really felt like I learned a lot from that book.

Hestia (Vesta)

Goddess of the Hearth and Home

Book with the most relatable story: P.S. I Like You by Kasie West. That book really felt like it was written about my family. I love how honest the whole story and all the characters felt in that book.

Demeter (Ceres)

Goddess of Fertility and Agriculture

Favorite bookish setting: I’m not sure how I answer this one… Um, I really like high fantasy settings the most…

Dionysus (Bacchus)

God of Wine and Celebration

2017 release you are most anticipating: Flame in the Mist by Renee Ahdieh!

Heroes of Olympus

Percy Jackson

A brave, spirited natural leader with a sarcastic sense of humor, and a will to save friends and enemies alike

Favorite protagonist: Alex from Female of the Species. She was such a badass!

Annabeth Chase

Intellectual genius with a strong mind, brave heart, and a love for architecture

Series / book with the most clever plot: I’m going to give this one to Heartless. I love what Meyer did that story and never expected it to be told from that light.

Jason Grace

Has a moderate sense of humor, but a strong sense of honor, justice and compassion, often described as perfect

Book with an epic finale: I loved Morningstar, the finale of the Red Rising series. What a great book.

Piper McLean

Aggressive and persuasive but down to earth, caring and loving towards Jason, her friends and family

Book with a tempting synopsis (one you haven’t read!): This is a difficult one for me because I hate reading synopses! I like not knowing what to expect when I open a book and the synopsis gives so much away for me!

Leo Valdez

Good-natured and energetic, funny but intelligent, honest and witty, and is skilled with machines

Book that made you laugh: A Man Called Ove. I have never laughed s hard reading an way book always I did with that one. 

Hazel Levesque

Bright and outgoing despite an unfortunate childhood, is mature for her age and has a love for horseback riding

Favorite character with a tragic past: I really loved Grace from A Madness So Discreet and she went through some terrible things.

Frank Zhang

Somewhat shy, cynical, and clumsy, though he possesses a strong sense of duty, loyalty, and love

Book you loved more than you thought you would: There are so many! I was really hesitate about The Wrath and the Dawn and boy was I wrong about that!

Nico di Angelo

Grim, solitary, powerful and mysterious, highly unpredictable and selectively affectionate

Most mysterious character you’ve ever encountered: I’m going to go with Professor Snape. Rowling was so great at making us believe one thing or another without giving us too much and always keeping us in the dark with him.

Grover Underwood

Cheerful, upbeat and protective satyr who chews on furniture when he gets nervous

Book you won’t read due to warnings against them: Umm, I’m big on reader reviews so if the people really disliked a book then I probably won’t read it either. 

Clarisse La Rue

Arrogant and hot-tempered, but brave, strong and protective of camp

Most annoying character: I honestly don’t have a most annoying character I don’t think. I feel like if I can’t remember them, they must not have been that annoying, right?
