Reading Guide: Intro to Mythology Books

Posted March 5, 2017 in Books / Leave a comment!

Hey guys! Time for a fun post today! It’s fun for me anyways. I love sharing what kinds of books I read without just posting a bunch of reviews. Today I’m writing a guide of sorts to get you started into reading books of different genres. This will hopefully become a series of sorts that you can look forward to in the near future. This is my intro to mythology books.

I want to make it clear before I show you this list of mythology books, these books are only BASED off mythology. That means that they don’t follow the myths exactly. For me, that’s fine. I like reading all these different stories and picking out what is similar and different. I’m just saying this because some people get very annoyed when fictional books don’t follow history or mythology perfectly. I think it’s completely up to the author what they want to do with their story. Therefore, I love mythology books.

Note: I haven’t read all of these (because my TBR is massive) but I’ve heard good things about all of these books and think they’re worth checking out. Even though I haven’t read all of these, every single one of them is on my TBR and I do own most of them.

These are also primarily young adult and middle grade mythology books though I added an adult section at the bottom for those who read beyond the young adult genre.
