Greek Mythology Book Tag!

Greek Mythology Book tag!

Although nobody tagged me for this book tag, I’m really excited to do this tag as I’ve been a big fan of Greek Mythology ever since I was 14. My favourite Greek Goddess will have to be Athena as she is wise and level-headed. Let me know who is your favourite Greek God or Goddess in the comments below!

This tag was created by Flip that page 

Zeus (Jupiter) – God of Sky and Thunder, King of the Gods

[Favourite book]

11235712.jpg

Hands down, it would be Cinder by Marissa Meyer. It was the book that brought me back to reading and starting to read YA, it was beautifully written with a well-crafted world and fantastic characters.

 

Poseidon (Neptune) – God of the Seas and Earthquakes

[A book that drowned you in feels]

30724132.jpg

Geekerella by Ashley Poston. I didn’t get into the book much until the middle and after that I absolutely loved the novel! It’s a love letter to all the misfits and the rejects that society labels nerds and weirdos. A cinderella retelling that made me like the idea of Cinderella.

 

Hades (Pluto) – God of the Underworld

[Favourite book with a dark/ominous plot]

10429045.jpg

I would choose Shatter me by Tahereh Mafi. I loved the whole idea that Juliet is poison to anyone and no one can touch her. And its pretty dark but in a beautiful and deadly kind of way.

 

Hera (Juno) – Goddess of Marriage and Family

[Cutest fictional couple]

16071187.jpg

I would pick Cora and Cassian from The Cage series. (Spoiler alert) Although they do not end up together, I felt that their romance throughout the entire series was awesome.

 

Athena (Minerva) – Goddess of Wisdom, Handicraft and Strategic warfare

[Series with the best world building]

20759393.jpg

Without a doubt, The Arcana Chronicles by Kresley Cole. The first book, Poison Princess had me hooked all the way throughout the series. Similar to the hunger games, but with a darker dystopian and Tarot card twist

 

Aphrodite (Venus) – Goddess of Love and Beauty

[ Most beautiful cover on a 2016 release]

25785357.jpg

I would have to go with Firstlife by Gena Showalter, the cover looks absolutely stunning and the world is built on the cover of the book!

 

Ares (Mars) – God of War and Bloodshed

[ Most violent book you’ve ever read]

18746546.jpg

Dead of Winter (The Arcana Chronicles #3) by Kresley Cole (I’m sorry that I repeated the book) but this series is legit gory and not for the faint-hearted. It takes about zombies and torture on every level possible. (Fair warning if you’re going to read this series, but its really good)

 

Hephaestus (Vulcan) – God of Blacksmiths and Fire

[Scorching hot swoon worthy character]

10194157.jpg

The Darkling from The Grisha Trilogy by Leigh Bardugo!!! I feel that he was totally pushed to the side due to him being a power-hungry maniac, but that darkness and vibe around him is so OMG and he totally deserved a redemption arc.

 

Artemis (Diana) – Goddess of the Hunt and Virginity

[Favourite Kick-Ass Heroine]

5743031040cee59931cd9f271e720321.jpg

Cinder in Cinder by Marissa Meyer, secretly a heir to the throne, a gifted mechanic and rebel leader, is there any more to say? (OMG, this version of the cover looks absolutely stunning)

 

Phoebus Apollo (Apollo) – God of Light and Healing

[ Sequel book that redeemed its series]

None, I wouldn’t continue reading a series if the 1st book didn’t catch my attention

 

Hermes (Mercury) – Messenger God of Thieves and Commerce

[Book with the best message]

Gorgeous by Paul Rudnick, it teaches one that beauty is from the inside, not the outside.

 

Hestia (Vesta) – Goddess of the Hearth and Home

[ Book with the most relatable story]

13206828.jpg

Cress by Marissa Meyer. I feel that my personality is really similar to Cress’s and that she’s stuck in a satellite far in space and doesn’t fit in anywhere, this is literally me.

 

Demeter (Ceres) – Goddess of Fertility and Agriculture

[ Best bookish setting]

Factions (From the Divergent series), I think the idea of different factions really show that even though each faction is strong in different traits, when combined together, they symbolise a flawed person, like everyone of us.

 

Dionysus (Bacchus) – God of Wine and Celebration

[ 2016 release you are most anticipating]

23174274.jpg

Glass Sword ( Red Queen #2) by Victoria Aveyard. After the first book, I’ve been dying to find out more about Mare and her adventures.

 

 

Anyone who’s interested can take part in the tag!

This tag was fun and leave in the comments whether you have read these books or who your favourite Greek God and Goddess is!

Books and music book tag!

Hello, I’m finally doing another book tag since I suddenly started googling it today😂

I saw this book tag on chellesbookramblings.wordpress.com (do check her out!) but the original book tag was created by Debbie at debbieslibrary.wordpress.com (Do check her out too!)

I wasn’t tagged by anyone, but wanted to give it a shot since, who doesn’t love music?

I enjoy pop music and some of my favourite artistes are, Demi Lovato, Simple Plan, well anything that has a good tune

Here are the rules:

  • Tag the creator of this tag and the one who tagged you
  • Pick 5 songs (or more) that you just have to listen whenever they are played
  • Pick the books/characters you think fit that song the best, and explain why you pick this book/character for this song
  • Tag some friends!
  1. Mama by Jonas Blue ft. William Singe
  • This song definitely reminded me of Geekerella by Ashley Poston which I just recently read. The protagonist, Danielle (or better known as Elle), desperately needs to escape her horrible life with her stepmother and her step sisters and her perfect escape is into the world of Star Field.
  • This song talks about escaping troubles and just living life in the now, without a care in the world
  • When Danielle meets Darien, he is her perfect escape as he understands her pain and everything

2. Sorry not sorry by Demi Lovato

  • For this song, I thought of Mare Barrow from the Red Queen series by Victoria Aveyard, she’s treated like a trophy after the Silvers discovered she is a red blood, but has silver abilities and they parade her around like a doll.
  • But more to that, this song represents her in the 3rd book, after she’s experienced all the trauma and pain, it tells us all that- She can no longer be controlled by them, and she’s not sorry for that

3. Promise me no promises by Cheat codes ft. Demi Lovato

  • Can I first mention how much I’m hooked on this song right now? And the music video looks lit😍 (Okay, If the music video has any dystopic elements, I LOVE it)
  • For this song, I thought of the Crewel world series by Gennifer Albin, I just read the first book and just felt that the book was really suitable for this song

“Oh na na, Just be careful, na na”

“Love ain’t simple, na na”

“Promise me no promises”

  • The people around Adeline keep expecting her to go with the norm now that she’s the next Creweller. And now that she has escaped to earth with Erik and Jost, she can’t promise anything
  • But I think this song is more fitting for the relationship between Jost and Adeline, where they promise each other no promises, because they themselves have no idea how this will turn out

4. Crying in the club by Camila Cabello

  • This song, I have never heard it before, I just randomly picked it in the youtube suggestion side bar from the previous song’s video
  • The moment I heard the first line of the song, I immediately thought about The lovely reckless by Kami Garcia
  • The entire song also shows the protagonist, Frankie’s character arc when she goes from a crying mess into a girl who’s reckless and no longer crying in the club

5. Rock bottom by Hailee Steinfield ft. DNCE

  • I really liked this song since I listened to it awhile back, by re-listening to this song, I immediately knew what book that fit it
  • The Shatter me series by Tahereh Mafi, especially the relationship between Juliet and Warner. Its a love hate battle between the two of them until the final book

 

Feel free to try out this tag and let me know you’ve done it and I’ll check it out! Hope you liked my song choices and their respective book choices along with it! Have a great day😉

 

Booktag!- The book blogger memory challenge

Hey guys, I got tagged by Myrth at http://clistebella.blogspot.sg/ to do this book blogger memory challenge!

First things first, I have very bad memory about books T.T and I always read similar genres most of the time, so I don’t think I’m going to be able to do well on this, but I’ll try my best 😉

 

The rules :

You must answer these questions without looking anything up on the internet and without looking at your bookshelves!!
Name a book written by an author called Michael.
I’m already stuck at the first question 😦 I don’t think I’ve read any books by an author called Michael, so is a fictional character okay? There’s Michael from the Demon Princess Series (Sorry for my lack of knowledge on authors 😦 )
Name a book with a dragon on the cover.
I have never read a book with a dragon on the cover, the nearest I can remember is the firelight series, on the cover they have dragon scales? (OMG I suck at this)
Name a book about a character called George.
I really could not think of a character called George (Maybe its time for me to read more books XD )
Name a book written by an author with the surname Smith.
Tantalize by Cynthia Leitich Smith
Name a book set in Australia.
I have not read a book set in Australia yet, any recommendations?
Name a book with the name of a month in the title.
I have never read a book with the name of a month in the title, any recommendations for me?
 
Name a book with a knife on the cover.
The assassin’s blade
Name a book with the word ‘one’ in the title.
The one which is part of the selection series by Kiera Cass
Name a book with an eponymous title.
I had to look up the word eponymous, but still couldn’t think of anything 😦
Name a book that was turned into a movie.
The mortal instruments: City of bones (I’ve been watching the TV series and have watched the movie, I’m about to read the first book soon!)
Hey guys, I apologise that I wasn’t able to answer so many of these questions (my book knowledge has failed me) but feel free to tag me in more bookish tags and I would love to try them out!
