Today, I’m bringing you a book tag that I’m so excited to do! I’m a big fan of Greek mythology (any mythology, really) and a big fan of book tags, so the Greek Gods Book Tag is the perfect combination for me. I’m hoping you have as much fun reading it as I do writing it!
First, I want to thank the lovely Erika @ And On She Reads for the tag ❤ Erika is an incredible blogger who writes fabulous bookish posts. You should definitely go check out her blog when you get the chance.
Alright, let’s get to the post!

- Tag as many people as you want, but please share the love.
Zeus, King of the Gods: Your favorite book
This is an unfair question! How am I supposed to just pick one?! To play along, I’ve decided to pick one of my favorite books that I’ve re-read the most: Raybearer by Jordan Ifueko. It’s a beautiful story with lush world-building and a main character you can’t help but love. The fact that the main character is an idealistic Black young woman certainly helps! I love this story and am always eager to fall back into the world of Aritsar, so this gets the top spot for now!
Hera, Queen of the Gods: A badass female character
The main character from Little Thieves by Margaret Owen immediately came to mind! Vanja is the goddaughter of Death and Fortune, a unrepentant thief, and a young woman bent on living her own life. She’s such an incredible character and I loved watching her work! Her growth throughout the story was wonderful to see, as well.
Janus, Good of Beginnings: Your favorite debut(s)
I’ve read a lot of fantastic debuts lately. I decided to go with one that I just read this year: The Gilded Ones by Namina Forna. This book blew. my. MIND! It was a stunning novel that felt like I was reading a movie. It’s vibrant, action-packed, and features a strong, Black character growing into her own. I absolutely loved this book and I can’t wait for the sequel!
