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
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.
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.
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!
Goddess of Marriage and Family
Cutest fictional couple: Shazi and Khalid from The Wrath and the Dawn!
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.
Goddess of Love and Beauty
Most beautiful cover on a 2017 release: I have to give this to Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor. That cover really is beautiful!
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.
God of Blacksmiths and Fire
Scorching hot swoon worthy character: Rhysand, Rhysand, Rhysand…
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…
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.
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.
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…
God of Wine and Celebration
2017 release you are most anticipating: Flame in the Mist by Renee Ahdieh!
Heroes of Olympus
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!
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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?
