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.

395040

Not YA, but my favorite book is The Bell Jar.

 

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.

 

25014114

I’ve cried twice reading this year and both times were books by Adam Silvera.

 

LOKI – BIGGEST PLOT TWIST OR CHARACTER BETRAYAL

Loki is the god of mischief, thieves and thrives on chaos

29236298

I can’t say who this is about, but there was a character in this book who wasn’t who they said they were.

 

FRIGG – OTP

Frigg is Odin’s wife, the goddess of love, marriage, fertility and fate.

32075662 (1)

I adored Kate and August in This Savage Song and Our Dark Duet.

 

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.

15755296

I’m not sure if it’s my favorite second book, but it was one I gave 5 stars.  There are still so many popular YA series that I haven’t read yet.

 

BALDUR – FAVOURITE MALE CHARACTER

Baldur is the beloved son of Odin and Frigg, twin brother of Hodor.

8709527

Another one that was tough for me.  But I really love Adrian Ivashkov.

 

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.

31931941

Not sure it’s the most beautiful cover, but I love this one.  Maybe not my favorite, but definitely a stand out for me.

 

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.

30264

Not sure that it makes me happy, but I do laugh a lot in this series. It’s pretty serious, but the humor is great, too.

 

FRAYA – FAVOURITE BOOK SETTING

Freya is the goddess of love and beauty, fertility, war, wealth and growth, and sister of Frey.

21523103

Hard to pick anything other than Hogwarts.  But there are quite a few cool book settings I love.

 

ULLER – CHARACTER DEATH THAT AFFECTED YOU THE MOST

Uller is the god of death, winter, archery and hunting.

33385229

There may be others that bothered me more, but I don’t want to post any spoilers for books.  So I’ll go with this one since we all know they both die at the end.

 

NJORD – FAVOURITE BOOK AN EPIC JOURNEY ON WATER/OCEAN SETTING

Njord is the god of the wind and the sea.

I’m not sure on this one.  If I think of one, I’ll come back and edit it. I can think of some I haven’t read yet, but nothing I’ve read is jumping out at me right now.

 

VALKYRIE – FAVOURITE STRONG FEMALE CHARACTER

The Valkyries, much like the Amazons, are strong female warriors.

345627

There are so many strong female leads that I love, but I went with Rose Hathaway.

 

AESIR/VANIR – FAVOURITE BOOK CREW

The Aesir and the Vanir are two groups of Norse gods, believed to be old and new gods.

30183

Might not be my favorite, but I love the group from the House of Night series.

 

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.

28524058

Not really a sidekick, but I love the dragons in this so far (still reading this one right now).  I really want a pet dragon.
