Book recs based on your favorite character in Hades

BOOK RECOMMENDATIONS:
HADES EDITION


During quarantine, I decided to invest in a Switch. I mean, what else is there to do stuck indoors except invest a lot of time and money in fictional stories and characters? (Wait, I just realized that that sounds very similar to books. Huh… who would’ve thunk it.) It seemed like a good idea at the time. In fact, it was such a genius idea that all of the US decided to join in on the fun. It was virtually impossible to find a Switch, and it took me a few months to get my hands on one.

Now that I’ve got one, I’ve become super obsessed with this little game called Hades. You might’ve heard of it. It won The Game Awards for Best Independent Game and Best Action Game in 2020. While I don’t know much about The Game Awards (or care, to be frank), I can understand why it won. It’s a super fun game, and it has fantastic artwork. If you’re looking to take a break from gaming, but want something Hades related, this is the place for you. If you’re looking for book recommendations in general, this is also the place for you. We welcome gamers and non-gamers alike here.

Graphic Novel Recommendations | The Awkward Book Blogger

I don’t know about you, but I love graphic novels. They’re a quick way to read a story with beautiful artwork. The only way I’ve been able to keep up with my reading goals every year was because of graphic novels. That being said, I’d like to think that I’ve read a lot of graphic novels in my time, and I’m excited to finally share my recommendations!

For the most part, I read a lot of middle grade/young adult graphic novels with a sprinkling of books targeted towards adults. They’re mostly in the fantasy or contemporary fiction genre.

If you don’t have enough time to commit to a full novel or just want to spruce up your TBR, this is the right place for you!

Help! I need book recommendations….

Guys! I need your help! I’m in a weird spot right now where I want to read, but I don’t want to read any of the books in my TBR.

That’s where you guys come in.

I’m looking for a young adult book with romance in it but is not a contemporary novel. The romance doesn’t have to be the main focus of the story, but I’d like there to be some. If you know of any that you’ve enjoyed in the past, please let me know! The more options, the better!

Thanks in advanced!

I read:

young adult, new adult, adult…

fantasy

Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling
Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas
A Court of Thorns and Roses series by Sarah J. Maas
Graceling by Kristin Cashore
anything by Cassandra Clare
Mistborn trilogy by Brandon Sanderson
The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer

Please give some suggestions because I’m desperate to discover new great books that I never knew existed!
