You should read the Iron Druid Chronicles  by Kevin Hearne. They are really good

HookedOnBooks says:

Am I the only one who loved the Kane Chronicles by Rick that are based on Egyptian mythology? Cause it seems like everyone forgets those happened lol

AllstarDirection says:

Someone might have already mentioned it but ACOWAR is a very loose Snow White retelling. It’s hard to see if you’re not paying attention but its there. The poison apple. The 7th high lords for the seven dwarves. The mirror.

Kat Haug says:

ACOWAR is inspired by Snow White, it is a very loose retelling, though. (the apple, the ouroboros mirror, and ianthe is kind of the evil queen in the way that she wants the people’s love.) I’ll definitely have to check the Sisters Red series out, it sounds interesting! Thanks for sharing some good recommendations.

PawsOnPages Ana says:

I really need to start ACOTAR.. like really need to.

Audrey Raj says:

For mythological reads, I recommend The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel by Michael Scott. It covers many different types of mythology including Greek, Norse, Japanese, Aztec, Celtic and many more. I love the characters and Nicholas Flamel is so interesting and the different Shadow Realms they go into are so well developed and beautiful and think this series started my love for mythology.

Anne Barbara Lee says:

Is the first one a lie??

Patrick Adams says:

If you like Mythology stuff you need to read “A Red Tails Dream” by Minna Sundberg. Its a graphic novel/webcomic based on Finnish myth and its absolutely awesome. I’ve been waiting patiently for a new printing to come out but here’s a link to it.

rahne176 says:

You need to read The Kane Chronicles by Rick Riordan. For some reason it always gets overlooked, but it’s one of my favorites and I learned a lot about Egypitan mythology.

Sam S says:

2nd one is a lie.

Magical Molly says:

The call is def mythology because it’s based heavily on some specific Celtic myths from Ireland also his name is pronounced “peter”

AmaisBooks says:

I’m not sure, but apparently ACOWAR is a Helen of Troy retelling? (I did just Google it, so I can’t personally comment on whether it is or not.)

Jane W says:

The phones not true lol??

Zainab Hussain says:

Your hair is amazing x

Eliza and her books says:

Sarah J maas has said the 3rd A court of thrones and roses book is a retelling of sleeping beauty

lori craven says:

The dark hunter series by sherrilyn kenyon is deep in Greek mythology

Jackie Lopez says:

Great recommendations!! I hope you make more videos like this one!

Book Dreamer says:

Kat! You don’t look 30! Are you really 30 years old?

Karkat Vantas says:

If you love Rick Riordan you must read The Kane Chronicles. They’re so good.

The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel by Michael Scott (multiple mythologies)
The Chronicles of the Imaginarium Geographica by James A. Owen (multiple mythologies, but there is a focus on the Judeo-Christian mythology)
Timekeeper by Tara Sim has a mythos which is loosely based on the story of Kronos from Greek mythology
The Joshua Files by M. G. Harris (Mayan mythology with a sci-fi twist)
The Young Heroes series by Jane Yolen and Robert J. Harris (Greek mythology) I’ve only read Odysseus and the Serpent Maze but that was a childhood favourite and I love it to this day, even if I only own an uncorrected proof copy.
I don’t remember much about them, but The Eye of the Serpent (Alec Devlin series) by Philip Caveney, and The Great Pyramid Robbery (Seven Fabulous Wonders) by Katherine Roberts were two books focused on Egyptian mythology that I loved as a kid.

The lie is the phones one. #1.

SUsii Hadry says:

Is the lie that your punk rock band was bad and actually everything you said was true but your punk rock band was dope af?

L Rose says:

About what age group would you say the Lunar Chronicles are aimed towards?

TRex_Reads says:

Have you read Rick Riordan’s Egyptian gods series? It is called the Kane Chronicles. I got given the first book in the series for my birthday, I have an ancient Egyptian obsession. I have not read any of his books and I am wondering what your thoughts are on this series of his before I jump into it.

A Fangirl says:

I think the cellphone one is a lie.
