I saw this tag however long ago on Marianna’s blog @ Marianna’s Corner, and I’ve had it in my drafts for however long too but the creator of the tag goes to Kyera @ Kyera’s Library. So now I’m only just getting around to doing it, probably because the game I’ve been playing with my friend (Fortnite) has gone down the Norse route and has Thor and such out at the moment.
Link back to my original post and to Kyera’s original post on Kyera’s Library so we can see all your answers! (Be sure to do this via pingback, I don’t get notified if you just tag my URL)
Thank the person(s) who tagged you… show the community some love!
Obviously, come up with your wonderful answers!
Don’t forget to tag others to keep the tag going!
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.
I read this one a couple of months ago, and fell in love with it. I was sad that it was only a standalone because I wanted to stay in that world much longer. I was torn between either choosing this, Red White & Royal Blue or an Enchantment of Ravens but I figured to try and use books that I’ve read so far this year hence why I picked this book instead. It was such a good fantasy book for me that I couldn’t even put it down and couldn’t stop thinking about it.
Thor – A book that hits you 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.
This trilogy is such a beautiful one, covering all sorts of themes and having disability rep, LGBT+ rep and just having such beautiful illustrations. It’s had me feeling emotional when I read from book one onto book three and honestly I could re-read it so many times because of how they’re all adorable!
Loki – Biggest book plot twist or character betrayal
Loki is the god of mischief, thieves and thrives on chaos.
I had to break the rules and use a older read, because there’s been no better betrayal or plot twists than the entire The Kiss of Deception trilogy and the Dance of Thieves duology, even though I’ve yet to read Vow of Thieves. But I’ve been putting it off because I know it’s gonna have a lot more twists and betrayal and honestly I’m not ready for a major book hangover yet.
Frig – OTP
Frigg is Odin’s wife, the goddess of love, marriage, ferillity and fate.
There is no better one true pairing than Fie and Tavin, they are the endgame for me and honestly I’m scared to read The Faithless Hawk (whenever it does decide to arrive) because I don’t want to see either of them hurting. Please Margaret don’t hurt my babies!
Heimdall – Favourite second book in a series.
Heimdall is the god of loyalty, faithfulness and it is he who protects the bi-frost, the bridge that connects all nine worlds.
Since the first favourite, I have read several series and several second book in a series, but nothing has been able to knock this book out of the top spot so I had to feature it again. It’s been a favourite for like two years now and I’ve reread it once a year since then and still loving it so much. It holds so much for me and I’ll forever always be grateful for it.
Baldur – Favourite main character
Baldur is the beloved son of Odin and Frigg, twin brother of Hodor
I had to pick this one because I saw so much of myself in Maya, she’s the fictional version of me. It was even better knowing she has a hearing impairment and refused to go down the Cochlear Implant route. We had the same experiences moving from a Deaf school to a Hearing school, and even moving houses and even having a single mom in the process too. It’s been so brilliant seeing her develop and grow over the process too and I just love her so much.
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.
This is a upcoming new release but the cover just gives me so much cottagecore vibes that y’know, I just had to include it! Ashley has also became one of my favourite authors too since I’ve read her whole Geekerella series and loved every book, and also finding out her Heart of Iron duology is a Anastasia retelling which is just the cherry on the cake.
Frey – Book or series that makes you happy
Frey is the Lord of weather, God of light, summer, master of agriculture, fertillity and brother of Freya.
If I ever felt sad or poorly, you can guarantee I will pick up all four novels in this graphic book series and binge read them all. They’re short and very quick reads and you just can’t help but fall in love with everyone especially Nicholas and Seiji!
Freya – Favourite book setting
Freya is the goddess of love and beauty, fertility, war, wealth and growth, and sister of Frey.
My favourite setting has to be fantasy, can be anywhere. But I also love a school setting for manga, especially since the anime I watch are all slice of life or even fantasy ones take place in a school too. But my absolute favourites have been the fantasy worlds/settings that Sarah J Maas created in her books, I haven’t read Crescent City but I already know I’d love it so much.
Tyr – Favourite book with a big upheaval/epic fight scene.
Tyr is the god of war
I had two other answers for this but couldn’t include them as 1. I’m reading one of them (Girls of Storm and Shadow) and 2. The other book hasn’t arrived yet (The Faithless Hawk) so I went with The Crow Rider instead because man, the fight scenes towards the end really had me on the edge of my seat and hoping that none of my faves got hurt.
Uller – Character death that affected you the most
Uller is the god of death, winter, archery and hunting
I still haven’t forgiven Sarah J Maas for the pain she inflicted on me with the big death scene in this, it was the only book to really make me cry, especially in front of my partner. It was that bad I hurled the book across the room, only to then pick it up and stick it in the naughty corner and told it was grounded for life. I still can’t get over it and it’s been almost two years, it has completely scarred me for life.
Njord – Favourite book/an epic journey on water/ocean setting
Njoyd is the god of wind and the sea
This was the only book I could come up with that had a journey at sea, and honestly after all the Little Mermaid and Aquaman vibes I was getting while reading this, it’s become a favourite. I would recommend you give this a go because it’s so good and keeps you in its grips.
Valkyrie – Favourite strong female character
The Valkyries, much like the Amazons, are strong female warriors.
This was a recent read and ugh Lei is just so so freaking awesome, badass and so strong. I’m reading the sequel right now and I’m still loving her so much so it’s only fair I used her for this.
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.
There can only be one answer, well okay two but you can only pick one so Manon and the Thirteen coven is my answer. I’m so in love with them all and ugh just I want to give the whole world to them. My other answer would’ve been the Inner Circle because ugh just the exact same feels.
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.
And lastly we’ve gotten to the last post and I’m gonna use this to mention Camden from Three Dark Crowns. Well it was either her or Res from The Storm Crow but Camden needs more mention because ugh she’s so lovable and I just want her to be endgame too. I haven’t read Two Dark Reigns or Five Dark Fates so no spoilers please.
See y’all in my next post
