ODIN – FAVOURITE STAND ALONE
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.
My favourite book ever is a stand-alone, and it is, of course, The Book Thief by Markus Zusak which is weird because I’m not a massive historical fiction fan but this book is just amazing!! I also love a lot of YA stand-alones. The Fault in our Stars is probably my favourite out of these!
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.
I could include The Book Thief and The Fault in Out Stars in this category. But, instead, it just has to be Boys Don’t Cry by Malorie Blackman. This book was just incredible. Boys might not cry cry but I definitely did reading this novel!
LOKI – BIGGEST PLOT TWIST OR CHARACTER BETRAYAL
Loki is the god of mischief, thieves and thrives on chaos
I was actually really surprised by the big reveal in Everything Everything by Nicola Yoon. I have seen a few people say that they were’t that shocked but I did not see the twist coming.
FRIGG – OTP
Frigg is Odin’s wife, the goddess of love, marriage, fertility and fate.
Adam and Ronan from The Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater swiftly followed by Isabel and Cole from The Shiver Series also by Maggie Stiefvater. Can Maggie Stiefvater dictate my love life please?
HEIMDALL – FAVOURITE SECOND BOOK 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.
Stealing Pheonix by Joss Stirling from The Savant Series. I really liked the first book in this series and the second followed quite a similar pattern, I just preferred the characters in the second book.
BALDUR – FAVOURITE MALE CHARACTER
Baldur is the beloved son of Odin and Frigg, twin brother of Hodor.
This is so hard because I have so many!! Most recently is probably Nate from One of us is Lying by Karen M. McManus. Of all time though? It might just be between Peeta Mellark from The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins and Cedric Diggory from Harry Potter by J.K.Rowling. No, I’m sorry, I can’t choose between them!!
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.
At the moment I am really loving the simplistic, white designs that seem to be quite current. My favourite out of these is The Names they Gave us by Emery Lord because it is just so pretty!! Away from that type of design I also love the cover of Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi.
FREY – BOOK/SERIES THAT ALWAYS MAKES YOU HAPPY
Frey is the lord of weather, god of light, summer, master of agriculture, fertility, and brother of Freya.
It just has to be The Harry Potter Series by J.K.Rowling, especially the first few books. Not only are these books just incredibly magical (excuse the pun!) they also make me really happy because one of my first reading memories is sitting on my Mum and Dad’s bed with my Mum on one side and my big sister on the other, all reading different copies of the latest Harry Potter book.
FRAYA – FAVOURITE BOOK SETTING
Freya is the goddess of love and beauty, fertility, war, wealth and growth, and sister of Frey.
Another difficult one here because I love Hogwarts (from Harry Potter by J.K.Rowling) but I’m also very tempted by Middle Earth from The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R.Tolkien. I think it has to be Hogwarts though, I was crushed when I never recieved my letter!
TYR – FAVOURITE BOOK WITH A BIG UPHEAVAL/EPIC FIGHT
Tyr is the god of war.
I don’t think I’ve read that many books with epic fights in them (cue me remembering loads of them tomorrow!) Might be a bit of a cheat but I’m going to say Forever from the Shiver Series by Maggie Stiefvater because it gets very tense near the end between the wolves and the hunters.
ULLER – CHARACTER DEATH THAT AFFECTED YOU THE MOST
Uller is the god of death, winter, archery and hunting.
SPOILERS AHEAD! Again, there are a lot of options (unfortunately 😭😭). Cedric Diggory from Harry Potter, Eight from The Lorien Legacies by Pittacus Lore, Augustus from John Green’s The Fault in Our Stars. Ultimately I actually can’t decide between two. The first is John Wing from Legend by Marie Lu, the way he sacrificies himself for Day just crushes me. The second is Rudy from The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. What’s crazy about Rudy’s death is that you know it’s coming from really early on in the book but I still found myself praying it wouldn’t happen. When it did, it broke my heart.
NJORD – FAVOURITE BOOK AN EPIC JOURNEY ON WATER/OCEAN SETTING
Njord is the god of the wind and the sea.
I might have to pass this one, I’m not sure I have read a book that’s fits the criteria 🙈🙈!!
VALKYRIE – FAVOURITE STRONG FEMALE CHARACTER
The Valkyries, much like the Amazons, are strong female warriors.
Ooh another difficult one but ultimately I have to go for the one and only Hermione Granger from Harry Potter by J.K.Rowling, my original inspiration!
AESIR/VANIR – FAVOURITE BOOK CREW
The Aesir and the Vanir are two groups of Norse gods, believed to be old and new gods.
I love the crew from The Raven Cycle, they’re so cute and it’s so nice not to have a group of friends break up because of romantic relationships. More recently I also really love the group of four narrators from One of Us is Lying.
SEIPYRTS – FAVOURITE SIDEKICK (NON-HUMAN CHARACTER)
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 a pretty horse does.
Although I really like Bernie Kosar from The Lorien Legacies by Pittacus Lore, it just has to be Hedwig from Harry Potter.
No worries if you have already done this tag or just don’t fancy it but please ping me if you do because I would love to see your answers!
Thanks for looking at this tag, I had a really good time doing my first one ever!
