Here I am with the weekly tag! *jazz hands* I am coming to you with one that has been sitting in my drafts for a long while. It was created by one of my dear friends, Kyera @ Kyera’s Library!
Kyera always comes up with amazing tags, so I was so excited to see she added another one to her mythological themed group! Egyptian mythology and really all mythology are so intriguing, I love discovering new facts and new histories.
Enough of me chatting let’s get on with it!
- Link back to my original post on Kyera’s Library so I can see all your answers! (Be sure to do this via pingback, I don’t get notified if you just tag my URL)
- Thank the person(s) who tagged you… show the community some love!
- Obviously, come up with your wonderful answers!
- Don’t forget to tag others to keep the tag going!
AMUN-RA – CHARACTER WHO ENTHUSIASTICALLY INVOLVES THEMSELVES IN EVERYBODY’S BUSINESS
Ra is the falcon-headed sun god, the creator and he named five of his fellow gods.
The Nightbringer. (An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir)
No one can do anything without him knowing. Ugh. I know I was probably supposed to choose a character who is fun loving and nosy, but he is a next level kind of nosy you don’t want to meet!
OSIRIS – FAVOURITE DOWN-TO-EARTH MALE CHARACTER
Osiris is the god of death, farming, and vegetation.
Billy from Three Dark Crowns (I forgot his last name…oops)
He is just so cute and naive and I love him. The purest of pure….but like he has seen and done(?) his fair share of bad deeds. No one is perfect.
ISIS – FAVOURITE FEMALE CHARACTER WITH POWERS
Isis is the goddess of magic and fertility, as well as being the mother goddess.
Cinder from The Lunar Chronicles!
I love the fact that she has magic-like powers in her glamour and her computer brain that is a magic on its own!
ANUBIS – CHARACTER YOU WISH YOU COULD BRING BACK FROM THE DEAD
Anubis took over as guardian of the underworld from his father, so he is the god of the afterlife and death.
Sorscha from Heir of Fire.
She deserved the world. Not a decapitation. I will never get over her death, she could have been someone great. Another reason for my disdain of the ToG series.
*End of SPOILERS*
SET – A CHARACTER THAT IS MORE DEVIOUS THAN THE ACTUAL VILLAIN
Set is the god of darkness, chaos, and storms.
Kaz Brekker from Six of Crows
To get the bad guy, you have to be worse than than the bad guy. My man knows what he is doing, and he is doing things right.
HATHOR – QUOTE THAT BRIGHTENS YOUR DAY
Hathor is the cow goddess of motherhood, joy, happiness, music, and love.
“Each day means a new twenty-four hours. Each day means everything’s possible again. You live in the moment, you die in the moment, you take it all one day at a time.”
― Marie Lu,
NEITH – CHARACTER YOU WISH YOU COULD RECEIVE LIFE ADVICE FROM
Neith is the goddess of the hunt, wisdom, weaving, and battle.
Mamie Rila (An Ember in the Ashes)
She always has something beautiful and wise to say, so let her guide me.
MA’AT – INJUSTICE YOU WISH YOU COULD RECTIFY
Ma’at is the goddess of truth, harmony, and justice.
The cover of Tower of Dawn. #Bitter. #ChaolShoulHaveBeenOnTheCover.
HORUS – FAVOURITE BRIGHT/CHEERY BOOK COVER
Horus is the god of light and the sky, as well as the god of the Pharaohs.
*realizes practically all of my books are black/have a sword on them* That doesn’t really scream cheery does it???
UMMM but this copy of Anne sure is cute!
THOTH – BOOK WITH THE MOST BEAUTIFUL PROSE
Thoth is the god of wisdom, writing, magic and the moon.
Whatever Roshani Chokshi writes!
PTAH – BEST WORLD BUILDING
Ptah is the creator and craftsman of the gods.
The Empire in An Ember in the Ashes
Sabaa Tahir is an icon.
KHONSU – BOOK YOU WISH YOU COULD READ FOR THE FIRST TIME AGAIN
Khonsu is the god of time and the moon.
I would really love to read The Lunar Chronicles for the first time again. It would be soooo amazing!!!!!!!!
I mean….to get to fall for Carswell Thorne again *swoon*
SOBEK – BOOK YOU WOULD SAVE FROM DROWNING (POSSIBLY OVER ANOTHER PERSON, NO JUDGEMENT)
Sobek is the god of the Nile and water.
My books by Marie Lu. THEY ARE SIGNED AND PERSONALIZED TO ME. I gotta keep them safe.
*Please ignore my ugly ass attempt to cover my real name XD*
*No pressure to participate, of course!*
Let me know what you think! Which is your favourite Egyptian deity? Know any good books on Egyptian myth? What mythology would you love to see represented in books?
ALSO. Would you guys mind checking out my last review for Mirage, it didn’t get as much traction as I’d hope and I would LOVE to hear your thoughts on this book!
