My Favorite Greek/Roman-Based YA Books

Happy Friday, bibliovores! Today is another day in which I didn't feel like writing/posting a review, but did feel like posting something... so I'm doing another favorites post! You can check out my other favorites posts in a previous posts (for example). 

I love Greek and Roman mythology! Or even simply the ancient Greece/ancient Rome setting. These books below have some sort of Greek/Roman basis and I love them!

Court of Fives (Court of Fives, #1)  Poisoned Blade (Court of Fives, #2)  Buried Heart (Court of Fives, #3)
The Valiant (The Valiant, #1)  The Defiant (The Valiant #2)
Blood and Sand (Blood and Sand, #1)  Of Poseidon (The Syrena Legacy, #1)  
The Lightning Thief (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, #1)  The Sea of Monsters (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, #2)  The Titan's Curse (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, #3)
The Battle of the Labyrinth (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, #4)  The Last Olympian (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, #5)

I've read others, like Everneath by Brodi Ashton, Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini, Abandon by Meg Cabot, Sweet Venom by Tera Lynn Childs. I didn't enjoy these but they are some of the more popular YA books that come up when you're looking at Greek/Roman-based stories.

What I REALLY want is ~adult romance~ novels based on Greek/Roman mythology and/or setting. Any recommendations are appreciated!


  1. I adored Percy Jackson series. I've got my eye on reading Blood and Ash eventually. I love the ancient Greek and Roman settings, too.

  2. Ooh nice ones! Another one I really liked was Kelly Keaton's Gods and Monsters series! I still need to read the fourth book but I know I will be lost because I can't remember much about the first three books!

    I honestly can't think if I've read any adult Greek/Roman mythology based book. I think they've all be YA. Weird. Lol.

  3. I loved the Percy Jackson books! And Valiant was good too, but then I never read the sequel whoops...
    as for adult reads... I know Wendy Higgins has a YA/adult crossover about Cupid/Psyche coming out next year... but other than that i cant think of any

  4. Poseidon and Sea of Monsters looks really good and may be something I would enjoy.

  5. Probably not a big surprise but I LOOOOVE Greek and Roman mythology. Out of the ones you've featured I've only read the first 3 Percy Jackson books. I really need to continue the series. I do have some adult recommendations though. Villain's Love series by Mary Bernsen, Lover Divine by A. Star (my personal fave!) and Ares' Temptation by Aubrie Dionne

  6. I have read Percy Jackson and of Poseidon. I actually enjoyed Starcrossed. I never finished the series, but I thought the first book was good.

  7. Ohh, I have read a few of these too :D The Valiant was so meh for me. Sigh. But I will still be reading the rest of the series, one day, haha :) I do find mythology books to be sort of interesting.
