So I’m back with Part Two of the Bookish Survey: Greek Mythology Style! It took longer than I said it would to post this, but that was because I got sick, along with the rest of my family. Anyways, let’s get started!
This part of the challenge will include characters from Heroes of Olympus. Hope you enjoy!
Percy Jackson – a brave, spirited natural leader with a sarcastic sense of humor, and a will to save friends and enemies alike
I hate to be one of those people who can’t get over a certain book series, but for this I’ve got to say Feyre Acheron from the A Court of Thorns and Roses series by Sarah J Maas. She’s super strong, and she has had the best development. When I first started the series I was a bit hesitant because I thought she was going to be overhyped, but she definitely was not. So because of that, she wins the title as my favorite protagonist.
Annabeth Chase – intellectual genius with a strong mind, brave heart, and a love for architecture
Series/Book With the Cleverest Plot
This was a hard one for me. So many series popped into my head, and it was difficult to choose just one. But after some thinking and scrolling through my Goodreads lists, I went with The Romantics By Leah Konen. It was one of my favorite romance plots, and I even gave it a 5 stars on Goodreads. The plot was original and adorable that I had to choose it, even if it wasn’t the best answer I could’ve given for this category. (Er – character?)
Jason Grace – has a moderate sense of humor, but a strong sense of honor, justice and compassion, often described as perfect
Book With An Epic Finale
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by JK Rowling. was my choice for this category. I love Harry Potter a lot, ok? So this series was definitely epic for me. Even the tear filled finale. It was amazing in the world of finales (even with the death of my favorite character – WHY FRED ? WHYYY!) so this book definitely deserves the title of Book With An Epic Finale.
Piper McLean – 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!)
Ten By Gretchen McNeil! I found this book after someone recommended it when I was looking for book recommendations. I looked it up on Goodreads, read about it, and fell in love with it! But unfortunately neither the library nor any local bookstores has it. I would buy it, but I’m broke. So until the library decides to stock this interesting book, it’ll forever be stuck on my want to read list on Goodreads.
Leo Valdez – good-natured and energetic, funny but intelligent, honest and witty, and is skilled with machines
Book That Made You Laugh
Fun Fact: I don’t really read “humor” books. But I do sometimes find books with adorable, funny main characters that make me smile a little bit. So I’ll be telling you guys about one of those – Sunkissed by Jenny McLachlan. The main character – Kat – is adorably awkward and fun to read as she’s forced to go spend her summer in Sweden. On an island. With no wifi. She makes friends, attempts (and fails) to compete in a physical competition, and of course, meets a boy. Anyways, it’s adorable and I got a few smiles while reading this book.
Hazel Levesque – 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
Adam Parrish from The Raven Cycle series by Maggie Stiefvater. Adam deserves nothing but happiness. I would die for him. Truly. Adam was a scholarship student, a trailer park boy in a school of trust fund guys. He had a terrible home life, and yet still managed to be so loveable and strong. I wish I could say I wasn’t crying as I typed this, but that would be a lie.
Frank Zhang – 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
Wonder Woman: Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo. Before I had read the book, I read some reviews on it to see what other people thought. One of my friends did not like it at all, so it gave me low standards. But when I read it, I loved it! The book showed off how strong and powerful Diana Prince is, which I loved. It also had a really interesting plot and plot twists I did not expect. (Highly recommend you read, by the way.)
Nico di Angelo – grim, solitary, powerful and mysterious, highly unpredictable and selectively affectionate
Most Mysterious Character You’ve Ever Encountered
Probably Azriel from A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Maas. From the moment he was introduced, I was intrigued. He had a very mysterious and dark vibe to him, and the amount of things I knew about him was very limited. It still is! I hope we learn more about him in the new novella because I’m definitely interested in learning about this dark and mysterious character.
Grover Underwood – cheerful, upbeat and protective satyr who chews on furniture when he gets nervous
Book You Won’t Read Due To Warnings Against Them
Elixir by Hilary Duff. While I’d love to read this since Hilary wrote it, I just can’t. I like to see what the reviews on Goodreads are before I read it, and this one had the worst. The highest one I’ve seen was three stars, and that’s just not workable for me. So because of that, I refuse to read.
Clarisse La Rue – arrogant and hot-tempered, but brave, strong and protective of camp
Most Annoying Character
Natasha from No Second Chances by Kate Evangelista. Don’t get me wrong, she was treated badly by her ex boyfriend, but some of the things she did… were just plain annoying. One thing that irked me was when she attended her ex boyfriend’s brother’s engagement party…. and got mad when she saw her ex boyfriend there. “How dare you show your face here!” Sweetheart, this is his brother’s event. Honest to god, you have no right to be angry. She’s also annoyingly stubborn and bratty throughout the book, which does not help. I just can’t with her.
So that’s the end of that! I was a lot of fun making this survey, so I hope you guys enjoy it as much as I did!
THANKS FOR READING WITH ME!
