Once Upon a Read-a-Thon (Post # 2)
Today is Day 2 of Once Upon a Read-A-Thon and I am having so much fun! Yesterday I read The Iron Queen, White Cat and The Demon's Lexicon! Today I hope to finish The Girl in the Steel Corset and Clockwork Angel.
Mini-Challenge # 1
Yesterday, I participated in the mini-challenge hosted by IB Book Blogging . I answered on twitter, which can be found here, but I will answer more fully here:
Questions 1: What is your favorite type of myth (Greek, Roman, Egyptian etc)?
I have always be fascinated with Greek Mythology. I thought the stories and myths were so amazing! If I was ever going to take more college classes, I would love to take a class on Greek Mythology.
Question 2: What is your favorite book with some type of mythology in it?
I think my favorite book that is based on Greek Mythology is the Percy Jackson series! Those books are so much fun, and I think it brings in a whole generation of young kids to not only want to read, but want to learn more about Greek Mythology.
Also, in college, I was in the sorority Tri Delta and our Greek God was Poseidon. The fact that Percy's dad was Poseidon was very cool!
