2012 Mythology Challenge

If you follow this blog, there's a "chance" you like books with mythology in them.  Am I right?  Well then, what could be better than a MYTHOLOGY CHALLENGE?
hop
I'm planning on participating in the challenge -- hosted by About to Read -- in which the only goal is to read 10 YA or MG novels that have some sort of mythology in them.  Could be Greek, Norse, Irish, Russian, you name it!  (Oh, and I'm pretty sure Destined qualifies...)

If you'd like to participate too, head on over to About to Read and sign up. 2012 is right around the corner. Might as well set an early New Year's Resolution!

Happy reading, everyone!

WHAT. FUN.
All of the challenges I'm reading about in the past couple of weeks are SO INCREDIBLE. I'm having a really hard time choosing the ones I want to do. I may just have to do a bunch of them and aim low in them all...

In fact, that's probably what I'll end up doing! This is one I hadn't heard of yet. Thanks for bringing it to my attention...I'm going to seriously consider it, given how much I ADORE mythology. Might even do a little Destined re-read. :)

This sounds like a great idea!I love reading books which bring mythology to life, and remember reading, and being thrilled by, Mary Renault's books about Theseus. Of course this was years ago when I was a YA myself! Now I am a publisher- mostly of books based in the history and mythology of Britain's Heroic Age aimed at adults- but my latest, due out in the next month or so- is about a boy in Ancient Greece, a "soul swap" with a modern girl, and the gods in action in the context of the Olympics of 432 BC. More about The Boy with Two Heads: http://trifoliumbooks.blogspot.com/2011/11/boy-with-two-heads.html I would love to think I could contribute to this challenge- perhaps a copy of a book as a prize?

Well, I've already read 7 Rick Riordan stories...so I'm pretty close to this goal already. Did I tell you when I was in high school I wrote a modern day Cupid and Psyche story so I am so very intrigued to read yours???
