Norse Mythology Book Tag

So I am totally in a book hangover after reading the Throne of Glass series and haven’t recovered yet. Hence, the constant book tag posts. Can’t write a review till I read something πŸ™„πŸ™„πŸ™„

I saw this tag at the amazing BookChantedBlog by Rhea and couldn’t resist doing it. I just watched Thor: Ragnarok last week and loved it, so this seems like a wonderful idea. So, let’s get on with it.

ODIN – Favourite Standalone

Odin is the All-Father, the leader of the Norse Gods. He is the god of wisdom, poetry, battle, death, wine, and war, among other things

The Hobbit by J. R. R. Tolkien

7C4DDEA1-A48E-48A6-BB47-8AC11B00AE30

I read so few standalones that I was stumped at this question. So, I took an escape route. Hobbit was an interesting foray into the world of Middle Earth and I loved it.

THOR – A Book That Hits You Right in the Feels

Thor is the god of thunder, weather, warriors, strength, and storms, so his might packs a punch. He is married to the beautiful Lady Sif.

When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon

This is actually a long list but I picked the latest book that made me feel very happy and giggly. It was such a breezy read and exactly what I needed.

LOKI – Biggest Plot Twist or Character Betrayal

Loki is the god of mischief and thieves, and thrives on chaos

Empire of Storms by Sarah J. Maas

Cant you hear me sobbing and weeping and gasping. What the hell just happened??? I actually read the whole series recently, so I just have to wait another year. But I truly sympathize with all my fellow ToG lovers who read this book when it came out. Please please give me ideas on how to cope.

FRIGG – OTP

Frigg is Odin’s wife, the goddess of love, marriage, fertility, and fate.

Feysand

I can actually go on and on with so many names here but I am controlling myself and just listing one. Feyre and Rhysand are the best most badass couple ever. I love them, PERIOD!!!

HEIMDALL – Favourite Second in a Series

Heimdall is the god of loyalty, faithfulness and he is who protects the bi-frost, the bridge that connects all nine worlds.

A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas

img_0746

There has not been a better second book in a series ever. Nothing else. This book is brilliant. And that’s all I am going to say.

BALDUR – Favourite Male Character

Baldur is the beloved son of Odin and Frigg, twin brother of Hodor.

Another loooooooong list to choose from. Sherlock Holmes. Harry Potter. Aragorn. Jem Carstairs. Nikolai Lantsov. Kaz Brekker. Rhysand. Dorian Havilliard. How am I expected to choose from so many wonderful characters??? πŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ€”

Ok ok. I give up. I love Rhysand. Hez too good for this world.

SIF – Most Beautiful Book Cover

Lady Sif is known for her beautiful golden tresses, although she is also the goddess of the harvest and is married to Thor.

The Language of Thorns by Leigh Bardugo

F908FF8B-3718-4C60-B1EA-5BAB4BE78CD6

This book is beautiful. The cover, the spine, every single page – it’s stunning. I would rather stare and admire it than read.

FREY – A Book or Series That Made You Happy

Frey is the Lord of weather, god of light, summer, master of agriculture, fertility, and brother of Freya.

Harry Potter

img_0657

There has never been another book series that has made me happier in my life.

FREYA – Favourite Book Setting

Freya is the goddess of love and beauty, fertility, war, wealth and growth, and sister of Frey.

The Grishaverse

9C61EA55-439D-410D-8130-A508DE2403A2

I am totally in love with this world. I love everything about it. Ravka, Fjerda, Ketterdam… All the places are amazing. I wish I could just visit them for a day.

TYR – Favourite Book With a Huge Upheaval or Epic Fight Scene

Tyr is the god of war.

Lord of the Rings by Tolkien

8924CD44-9AC8-4CA3-9B34-512E24DB7ADA

These books define epic fight scenes. I mean, is there another word that can describe this trilogy? EPIC!!!

ULLER – Character Death That Affected You the Most

Uller is the god of death, winter, archery and hunting.

Sirius Black

62737A11-DBC0-40F0-9437-8DB4862BBC03

SOB! SOB! SOB! Why does everyone Harry loves have to die? This death just killed me 😭😭😭

NJORD – Favourite Book With an Epic Journey in a Water/Sea Setting

Njord is the god of the wind and sea.

Sorry. I don’t think I have ever read anything of this kind. Or atleast I can’t remember.

VALKYRIE – Strong Female Character

The Valkyries, much like the Amazons, are strong female warriors.

Celaena Sardothien / Aelin Ashryver Galathynius

28329C45-8A7C-47C4-90F6-911C721AF682

She is badass. She is sassy. She has immense mental strength that helped her get through all the horrifying things done to her. Her fights are a sight to behold. But do you know what I love most about her – she is a BOOKWORM 😍😍😍

AESIR/VANIR – Favourite Book Crew

The Aesir and the Vanir are the two groups of Norse gods, believed to be the old and new gods.

Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo

67B5FA7B-AD7E-4B14-9958-A5E926C19D1C

No one can even come close. The most badass book crew ever. I love them. LOVE THEM ❀️❀️❀️

SEIPYRTS – Favorite Non-Human Sidekick

Seipyrts is Odin’s trusty eight legged steed; yes, you heard that correctly – eight legs. I promise that he is the god’s horse companion and not a giant spider that he rides around on… although that would probably strike more fear in the hearts of his enemies than pretty horse does.

Kiki from Magic Study by Maria V. Snyder

Yelena’s horse is the cutest thing ever. Their mind conversations are super funny. But the best part is the names that Kiki gives everyone she encounters, they are downright hilarious…

This was fun….. I hope you guys enjoy it too πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ
