Top 10 Tuesday #6 (May 19) | Freebie: Top Ten YA Greek Mythology Books/Series

Yay! A freebie! Top 10 Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, and this week’s theme is up to us to choose! So for mine, I chose to make a list of my top 10 YA Greek Mythology books and series. I’ll be listing both books I’ve read and books that are on my TBR.

As usual, in no particular order (All titles link to their Goodreads page):

1. Percy Jackson & the Olympians, Heroes of Olympus series by Rick Riordan (Read)

This series is obviously on the list. It’s the first one that popped into my head, and for good reason!

2. Covenant series by Jennifer L. Armentrout (Read)

I loved this series! It was amazing! Many people compared the series and characters to Richelle Mead’s VA series, and hated on the series as a result. I will admit there are several resemblances, but it did not ruin the books for me! If anything, they were better! (Especially since I liked the main character in Covenant, Alex, much faster than I did in VA with Rose.)

3. Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini (Read)

This book also involves Greek mythology, while a more different take on it. You can check out my review on the book here.

4. The Goddess Test by Aimee Carter (read)

I also liked this book. It’s a type of re-telling of the Persephone myth, and it was well-done.

5. Abandon trilogy by Meg Cabot (read)

Another Persephone retelling, the Abandon was another enjoyable take on Persephone’s myth.

6. Goddess War trilogy by Kendare Blake (first two books read)

This is going to be an amazing trilogy, with Greek gods and goddesses as the main characters. The third book is going to be released September 22nd this year, and I’m so excited! ❤

7. The Gatekeeper’s Sons by Eva Pohler (TBR)

I’ve heard lots of good things about this modernized Greek mythology 6-book series, and I’m eager to start them!

8. The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller (TBR)

I’ve heard several praises on this book as well, and I can’t wait ’till I read it!

9. Persephone by Kaitlin Bevis (TBR)

Another Persephone retelling! I’m interested in seeing how the authors changed up the traditional Persephone myth to make it her own.

10. Betrayal by Mayandree Michel (TBR)

Debut novel of Mayandree Michel, Betrayal follows a girl who is the descendant of Greek gods. Seems very interesting, can’t wait to read it!

The Descendants #1

  2. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE GREEK MYTHOLOGY especially in books! Yes, obviously Rick Riordan’s books must be added in!
    I’m so glad to see you tackle this topic because I am in need of more Greek mythology books. I really want to read The Goddess Test and Starcrossed (plus the author has the same name as me) because they sound great! And now I’ve got a bunch of now books to add to my TBR 😂

    • Ha ha yeah, isn’t it just the best? ❤
      I'm a totally fan of Greek mythology books, and I realized there actually are so many other Greek mythology books I have to get to while making this list! 😀 The Goddess Test & Starcrossed are definitely books I recommend, hope you enjoy them!
      TBR basically explains my reading life 24/7, ha ha. 😉

  3. Oh my gosh, Analee, this is a fantastic list! I’ve read The Percy Jackson and the Olympian series (and some of the Heroes of Olympus) but haven’t really ventured out with this subgenre. Some of these have been on my TBR list for a while now but I’ve added a few more thanks to your post. 😀
