Greek Mythology or Shakespeare???

Do you guys know any books (teen books) that have any greek mythology (Example: Oh, My Gods, Goddes Boot Camp) or shakespeare books (example: Wondrus Strange). Something like that?

 

That would really help me, thanks =)

Re: Greek Mythology or Shakespeare???

One example for Greek Mythology would be the Percy Jackson Series.  It's kinda for younger kids, but I still love them. :smileyhappy: Plus, they're coming out with a movie soon.

Also, there's a book called Shakespeare's Secret, but I read that in 6th Grade, so that may also be for younger kids.  It's about Shakespeare and stuff.

 

They're both for younger kids, but they're not bad.

Hope that helps. :smileyhappy:

Hmmm...don't know anything relatively Shakespearish, but I do know some Greek mythology books:

 

1. Percy Jackson and the Olympians series

2. The Fire Thief Trilogy

 

Both are great and I highly reccomend them :smileyhappy:))

Re: Greek Mythology or Shakespeare???

Ever by Gail Carson Levine. Its not greek mythology exactly, but its greek like. Also I bought Mythology by Edith Hamilton which has basically every greek myth and some norse myths in it too.

Re: Greek Mythology or Shakespeare???

I love the Percy Jackson Series, I love it so much I'm almost not ready for a movie of it lol! That's one of the best that I've found but also ummm...the...oh, Nobody's Princess and Nobody's Prize are good books. There's a 3rd one coming out soon I think also..The Shadow Thieves and The Siren Song from the Cronus Chronicles. Kind of for more little kids but still great books. I really don't look at age levels when I find books, so some of my books are for younger kids. But hey, if they're good, they're good! :smileyhappy:

Re: Greek Mythology or Shakespeare???

Well Shakespeare wise I would recomend Eyes Like Stars.... I forgot the authors name sadly.  I think its Manchov, but it's really good and a very unique read.  I totally adored it.

Re: Greek Mythology or Shakespeare???

my two suggestions are the obvious i suppose:

 

-Percy Jackson

and

-Shakespeare's Secret

 

both good, but indended for younger reads i guess.

umm.. and i think there are other books that i have read .. but im forgetting right now.. ummmmmm....

 

oho there was another series.. i never actually read it.. but own the first book its called "the cronos chronicals" or something along those lines... but again. intended for younger kids.

 

or if you just like greek mythology in general, then i suggest .. [excuse my horrid spelling.. :smileyhappy: ] "d'loures book of greek myths" . my favorite mythology book everrrrrr :smileyvery-happy:

 

if i think of any more

[which i totally am going to do. like randomly in the middle of the night i'll just be like "ohoo i just remeberd another book!! aahhh! i must go post now!!]

i will definatley let you know! i love greek mythology and shakespeare as well. both amazingg indeed! lol i sound like a total dork.. but whatever... haha
