ODIN – FAVOURITE STANDALONE
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.
EVERYTHING I NEVER TOLD YOU. This book was brilliant. It’s not a book I would have usually picked up but read because of a colleague recommendation. I highly recommend this book to everyone.
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.
THE FAULT IN OUR STARS. This book hit me right in the feels.
LOKI – BIGGEST BOOK PLOT TWIST OR CHARACTER BETRAYAL
Loki is the god of mischief, thieves and thrives on chaos.
LOCKWOOD & CO – THE CREEPING SHADOW. The end of this book fucked me up. Seriously. I was not expecting this plot twist at all and to say it shocked me would be an understatement.
FRIGG – OTP
Frigg is Odin’s wife, the goddess of love, marriage, fertility, and fate.
INEJ und KAZ. Do I have to say more?
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.
There are so many good books, but I think I go for Lockwood & Co. – THE WHISPERING SKULL. I know I talk waaayy too much about this series, but I really like it. And in The Whispering Skull we finally meet the – well – whispering skull and it’s so damn funny.
BALDUR – FAVOURITE MALE CHARACTER
Baldur is the beloved son of Odin and Frigg, twin brother of Hodor.
Oh .. I don’t know. I don’t really have a favourite? There are so many I like but I wouldn’t say I have a favourite.
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.
SLEEPING GIANTS. This cover is so freakingly gorgeous. And to be honest it was the main reason I picked up this book.
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.
JAHRESZEIT SERIE. I may have mentioned this series once or twice (or maybe more. probably more). This series is just so fluffy and cute, reading it really made me happy.
FREYA – FAVOURITE BOOK SETTING
Freya is the goddess of love and beauty, fertility, war, wealth and growth, and sister of Frey.
Can I go again for LOCKWOOD & CO? I’m a huge London fan (You may have guessed that by now) and I love the ghost part in these books.
TYR – FAVOURITE BOOK WITH A BIG UPHEAVAL/EPIC FIGHT SCENE
Tyr is the god of war.
The MONSTER HUNTER INTERNATIONAL series. There are sooo many fight scenes in the books and most of them are already pretty epic. But I think my favourite scene was in the second book. There is an attack on the MHI building and they had f*cking zombie bears. AND ZOMBIE ELEPHANTS.
ULLER – CHARACTER DEATH THAT AFFECTED YOU THE MOST
Uller is the god of death, winter, archery and hunting.
Basically every death.. But I think the death’s in Harry Potter affected me the most.
NJORD – FAVOURITE BOOK AN EPIC JOURNEY ON WATER/OCEAN SETTING
Njord is the god of the wind and the sea.
Does SIX OF CROWS count? Well, I let it count. This book was amazing. I loved absolutely everything about it.
VALKYRIE – FAVOURITE STRONG FEMALE CHARACTER
The Valkyries, much like the Amazons, are strong female warriors.
There are so many great strong female characters nowadays. So I think for this one I’m gonna go for NINA and INEJ from SIX OF CROWS.
AESIR/VANIR – FAVOURITE BOOK CREW
The Aesir and the Vanir are the two groups of Norse gods, believed to be the old and new gods.
At first I wanted to go for the SIX OF CROWS crew but then I thought a bit more about it and I’m going once again for LOCKWOOD & CO. I adore the team of Lockwood, Lucy and George. (I really wanna have a nice cup of tea with George)
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.
The skull in the Lockwood series. OMG I love everything about the skull. I love its sarcastic remarks. I love how it is helping Lucy but doesn’t really want to help so it’s talking in riddles.
