ODIN – FAVORITE 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.

Um, where do I start? I have so many favorite stand alones…

And these are only two of them…(More will appear in this post!)

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.

Um, yeah…this book was very emotional, let’s just say that…

LOKI – BIGGEST BOOK PLOT TWIST OR CHARACTER BETRAYAL

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

This is one of the very few books that I can say I did not see that coming. This was a jaw-dropper.

FRIGG – OTP

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

Oh crud…I’ve had ships recently, but not really any recent OTPs. (Sigh) I’ll just mention my usual series that has fantastic romance.

HEIMDALL – FAVORITE 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.

This is everything a second book should be. The mystery was better, the characters improved, and the stakes got higher…and that cliffhanger was killer.

BALDUR – FAVOURITE MALE CHARACTER

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

Well, when faced with questions like these, I usually just go with my most recent favorite characters…

I have to say that I really enjoyed Nikolai from Siege and Storm a lot (he’s probably my favorite in the Grisha Trilogy) and for my latest Webtoon addiction, I like Jun from My Boo. He’s a very new take on a ghost character.

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.

You guys knew this was coming, didn’t you? Well, what can I say? It is a gorgeous cover.

FREY – BOOK/SERIES THAT MAKES YOU HAPPY

Frey is the Lord of weather, god of light, summer, master of agriculture, fertility, and brother of Freya.

Uh…again, I have too many to count. Oh! Happy! That narrows things down…(no putting I Hunt Killers here…)

Besides Saphie, this is the cutest Webtoon out there.

FREYA – FAVORITE BOOK SETTING

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

This is such a cool world, I would love to visit it! (key word is “visit”)

TYR – FAVORITE BOOK WITH A BIG UPHEAVAL/EPIC FIGHT SCENE

Tyr is the god of war

Huh. This is interesting. I liked the tournaments in Warcross, but are those fight scenes? I may have to go with an old series I like: Percy Jackson and the Heroes of Olympus series. Rick Riordan is good at writing fights.

ULLER – CHARACTER DEATH THAT AFFECTED YOU THE MOST

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

I’ll opt out of this one. Too many deaths have affected me to count, and well, spoilers.

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

Njord is the god of the wind and the sea.

(Winces) I haven’t read many of these yet. (Sigh) The only one I can think of is Siege and Storm.

VALKYRIE – FAVORITE STRONG FEMALE CHARACTER

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

I have written an entire article series on female strength. This is hard. I suppose I could go with Emika from Warcross. She was a great lead.

AESIR/VANIR – FAVORITE BOOK “CREW”

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

In the classic fashion of the crew I am choosing, I am gonna steal Mandy’s answer and say the Six of Crows gang.

SEIPYRTS – FAVORITE 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.

The Doorman from I am the Messenger. He’s such a good dog.

  1. This is such a cool tag! I’m excited to do it!
    It sounds like you’ve been very productive with your time, if you’re posting everyday and all. It’s so cool that you’re so dedicated! (Meanwhile I’ve just been binge watching anime on break, and playing video games. 😅) I need to get back in the rhythm of things.

      1. Yeah, it’s time to get back in that school mode. *loud sigh* And I kept myself busy so that I couldn’t feel bored, but it’s understandable to not feel motivated to watch anything when you feel you’re already out of the loop.

  2. Ooooh, this was a lot of fun, Kate! 😀 I’m so glad you did it, and I loved your answers. I’m going to have to check out My Boo, because I love the idea of a new take on the ghost character. And now I’m excited to get to Siege and Storm to meet Nikolai if he’s a new favorite. Wonderful answers, Kate! 😀

    1. My Boo is really good. Much better than the title suggests. The art is beautiful, the story touching, and it just feels like a really realistic ghost story. Both of the main characters are very unique.
      I liked Siege and Storm much more than Shadow and Bone. However, I still don’t compare The Grisha Trilogy to SoC. I prefer SoC, but Grisha is still good!

      1. Oooooh. I like that. SO adding it to the Webtoons TBR.
        And okay, good to know. I’m just about to finish Shadow and Bone, and I was debating about whether or not to give it some space or to jump into Siege and Storm. If you think it was better, I think I’m going to need to jump into it.

      2. Cool! I hope you like it! (Which other Webtoons are in your TBR?)
        I hope you like Siege and Storm. I think it got a little more into Alina’s mind (while I like that, I wish it had been a touch more subtle. But I still think it was a gutsy move). It was just more creative than the first one, in my mind.
