Top 5 Saturday – Books Inspired by Mythology

This is a weekly meme hosted Devouring Books. This week’s prompt is Books Inspired by Mythology. Here’s my list:

1. The Penelopiad by Margaret Atwood

2. The Silence of the Girls by Pat Barker

3. American Gods by Neil Gaiman

4. The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller

5. The Lightning Thief (Percy Jackson and the Olympians #1) by Rick Riordan

(All book covers from Goodreads)

If you’d like to do this list too, consider yourself tagged!

Did you make a Top 5 Saturday list?

  1. I read ‘The Penelopiad’ recently and I was surprised how much I liked it. It almost made reading that agonizing slog that is ‘The Odyssey’ worth it, because it helped with context. I haven’t read any of the others, though I really like the books I have read by Neil Gaiman.
