Egyptian Mythology Book Tag

Greetings readers!

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!

The Rules:

  • 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.png

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!

Sobek (1).png

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.png

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.png

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.

*SPOILERS* *SPOILERS*

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.png

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.png

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 LuLegend

ICONIC.

Neith.png

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.png

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.png

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!

Happy Mothers Day!  While finding books to take this photo I realized that there are not a lot of moms present in YA (fantasy to be specific). While going along the shelves and looking at my books I either said dead mom or bad mom.  Luckily today we can celebrate all the women in our lives who teach us, guide us and strengthen our hearts. Not mothers of our birth but mothers of our souls!  So special shout out to my favourite fictional motherly figures: Marilla Cuthbert, stern but kind hearted and Ximena the most kickass yet gentle nurse ever!  Once again happy Mother's Day to all the mother-like women in our lives!  Who are some of your fave fictional mothers?  #thegirloffireandthorns #raecarson #anneofgreengables #lmmontgomery #mothersday #fictionalmoms #marillacuthbert #ximena #youngadultbooks #reader #bookworm #bookaddict #readingwithrendz

THoth.png

THOTH – BOOK WITH THE MOST BEAUTIFUL PROSE

Thoth is the god of wisdom, writing, magic and the moon.

Whatever Roshani Chokshi writes!

Happy New Years Eve!  It's the last day of 2017 people, that's crazy!  On this night, my family gets together to count down to midnight and ring in the new year together! We also gobble down twelve grapes for each ring of the bell. With each grape you make one wish or resolution that you hope to fulfill in the new year. (Last year the grapes had seeds so it was a struggle 🙃) 2017 was a great year for me and the growth of my blog and bookstagram.  I got to read so many great books including The Star-Touched Queen by @roshanichokshi !  I recently bought A Crown of Wishes to complete the the series on my shelf! I featured the duology in my post today! (Plus it was fitting with the whole grape - wish thing... At least the wish part!) What plans do you have to ring in the New Year? What is your most anticipated 2018 read?  #thestartouchedqueen #acrownofwishes #roshanichokshi #ya #yafantasy #youngadultbooks #bookstagram #books #yabooks #newyearseve

Ptah.png

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.png

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.png

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.

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!

Happy reading!

  1. Omg, I didn’t even know such a tag exists. Because of Rock Riordan, I’m such a fan of both Egyptian and Greek mythology (although Kane Chronicles is my favorite) and all these gods. (Also, hi fellow Sabaa Tahir follower, I too belong on the same boat 😂)

  2. Oh I love this tag so much! Anything mythology really, but this one looks especially cool and so aesthetically pleasing ❤

    #ChaolShoulHaveBeenOnTheCover <– THIS A HUNDRED TIMES OVER (I have a lot of feelings, and I finally got the book the other day so I only need to finish EoS and start reading it. That's all. That's all it takes. Ugh, I wish I'd want to read EoS at all T_T)

    By the way, your Cinder drawing? Perfection. I love it. I LOVE IT. You have real talent there, missy ^^

    I have recently started Legend so I'm crossing my fingers it'll be as exciting as everyone makes it out to be. Not trying to get my hopes up tooo much but definitely pumped 🙂

    Great post, Rendz!

    • Oh dear for some reason the rest of your comment got cut off and I couldn’t read it yesterday, but today I can!!!
      I know how you feel about EoS, I had the same experience, but I had to push through so I could read my baby’s book. I mean ToD has its eye rolling moments too especially since a certain character has to be mentioned on practically each page…but there is some really good stuff in that one too! So just push through EoS and get to the good stuff!

      AND THANK YOU FOR THE COMPLIMENTS ON THE DRAWING, IT MEANS A LOT!

      I am also not trying to get your hopes to high, but I hope you enjoy Legend!!!

      • I will!! Ugh, I need to get this over with… I mean, IT’S MY REPUTATION THAT’S AT STAKE! I NEED to read our baby’s book and find some way to love it. I don’t care how but I will! I just miss him so much 😭

        I am enjoying Legend so far, thank you 😀 It’s quite quick-paced and it feels like things happen super fast hahaha But maybe it’s because I’m listening to the audiobook? Who knows. But I’m glad to have someone else raving about it, makes me hopeful for a very promising ending ❤

      • Trust me you WILL find things to love in ToD. There are two things I’m really excited for you to read and I hope we can discuss them after!!!
        Legend is quite fast paced and short so its quite a good rush!

  3. Oooooh these were fantastic answers as always, Rendz! Omg, yes, it would be amazing to reread TLC for the first time. Meeting Thorne and being like, who is this man, and why do I feel the strange desire to love with him ASAP??? And looking at all your bookstagram pictures has me sighing with their beauty. Wonderful answers, Rendz!! 🙂
