Posted August 9, 2014 in Survey / 0 Comments

Another fantastic survey from Jasmine at Flip That Page!

survey

gods

Zeus (Jupiter)

God of the Sky and Thunder / King of the Gods

Favorite book (choose your own category!): Alice in Wonderland. I have a super unhealthy obsession.

Poseidon (Neptune)

God of the Seas and Earthquakes

Book that drowned you in feels: Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare and The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. No explanation needed!

Hades (Pluto)

God of the Underworld

Favorite book with a dark / ominous plot: Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins. Oh wait, favorite book? Hm. Harry Potter #7.

Hera (Juno)

Goddess of Marriage and Family

Cutest fictional couple: I have a whole post on that but I’ll just choose one. Livia and Tavius from I Am Livia by Phyllis T. Smith. They were so dynamic but so devoted.

Athena(Minerva)

Goddess of Wisdom, Handicraft and Strategic Warfare

Series with the best world-building: Inkheart trilogy by Cornelia Funke. It’s a world within the real world. Followed by the Harry Potter series and the Seven Kingdoms series (Kristin Cashore).

Aphrodite (Venus)

Goddess of Love and Beauty

Most beautiful cover on a 2014 release: I hate to disappoint but I don’t really do covers. I don’t pay much attention to them. Nor do I pay attention to yearly releases. The ARCs I read aren’t very widely known and the series’ I read on my own have been published years ago. Sorry!

Ares (Mars)

God of War and Bloodshed

Most violent book you’ve ever read: Any book in the Warriors series by Erin Hunter. It’s a middle grade series but there are more deaths per book than any other series. And they’re cats. Dying cats. It’s horrible. But I still like the series.

Hephaestus (Vulcan)

God of Blacksmiths and Fire

Scorching hot swoon worthy character: Will Herondale from The Infernal Devices. *swoons on the spot*

Artemis (Diana)

Goddess of the Hunt and Virginity

Favorite Kick-Ass Heroine: Katsa from Graceling. Followed by Katniss from The Hunger Games. Katsa’s Graced with survival and has so many cool abilities- how can you beat that? And Katniss is very similar but not quite as awesome.

Phoebus Apollo (Apollo)

God of Light and Healing

Sequel book that redeemed its series: Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare. I didn’t think Clockwork Angel was all that, but the second book was AMAZING. Also, to some degree the second book in the Bartimaeus trilogy renewed my interest, but the whole series was awful anyway.

Hermes (Mercury)

Messenger God of Thieves and Commerce

Book with the best message: To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee.

Hestia (Vesta)

Goddess of the Hearth and Home

Book with the most relatable story: Harry Potter. Just kidding. I wish. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. Not because of the cancer, but because of pretty much everything else.

Demeter (Ceres)

Goddess of Fertility and Agriculture

Favorite bookish setting: Hogwarts. Hands down. Well, there are some others. Narnia, perhaps. Oh! WONDERLAND! I love Alice in Wonderland…

Dionysus (Bacchus)

God of Wine and Celebration

2014 / 2015 release you are most anticipating: I’ve only looked ahead as far as 2014. Like I said, almost all the books on my TBR are ones that have been already published because I’m just so darn behind. So the 2 I’m looking forward to later this year are The Doll People Set Sail by Ann Martin (I loved and own the first 3) and Diary of a Wimpy Kid #9 (still the funniest books I have ever read in my entire life).

What fun! If you’ve done this survey already, link up below, or just comment your answers!
