What do I love about Mythology

Another type of genre I love is mythology. I never thought much about I love mythology. I know I have loved mythology for a long time. The genre of mythology goes back to Ancient Greece- they believed in Gods and Goddesses.

There Gods and Goddesses consist of Zeus, Ares, Poseidon, Athena, and Aphrodite, etc. There are a lot of them. As a matter of fact, a character in my Fairy Frogs book is named after a Greek God- Aries- he may be spelled like the horoscope, but is named after the Greek God. Each of the Gods and Goddesses are a God or Goddesses of ( …….). For instance Aphrodite is the Goddesses of Love. There are these monsters and creatures in mythology like Medusa among many others. There is something about the Gods, Goddesses, the creatures, and monsters that make me love mythology. I love the Illiad and Odyssey. In middle school (I believe), I fell in love with the Percy Jackson series. I love the adventures and quests the characters go on. In some ways, mythology is similar to fantasy (just different)- mythology is way different than fantasy- but like fantasy, is home to quests and journeys and has these type of creatures that don’t exist anywhere else but in the books of mythology.

I barely own mythology books. It still is something I love. I have always loved Ancient Greece, and their culture- that can be part of why I love mythology so much.

My taste in book are classics, mythology, fantasy, magic, and adventure. What exactly makes a good book? A good book is always home to a incredible plot along with incredible characters as well. As for the classics, I love reading them due to the challenge that they bring and as for now, reading them in between semester and reading them in a limited amount of time gives me the motivation to actually finish them
