to quoted-books: Hi,
can you recommend any non-romantic (at least not main plot) books that have
someting to do with history or mythology. (Sorry if I accidentally send this
It didn’t come up twice and even if it had- no worries at
all! It is interesting to me to see how many mythology based books to feature
romance. I guess, romance was featured quite a bit in the original stories too.
I have to admit that I have read A LOT of Persephone/Hades type spin-offs so I
can’t really say anything either haha, but here are some that do not feature
romance as a main vehicle for the plot to continue! Hope these help!
Also, I wasn’t sure which age group to pick from so it’s
kind of all over the place. If I picked too many ones considering in the JUV/YA
category, just let me know, and likewise with Adults! I didn’t put Rick Riorden’s
series on there because I feel like it’s pretty well-known at this point but
that’s a series to consider too.
“I believe that mankind’s destiny lies in the stars. I believe that candy really did taste better when I was a kid, that it’s aerodynamically impossible for a bumble bee to fly, that light is a wave and a particle, that there’s a cat in a box somewhere who’s alive and dead at the same time (although if they don’t ever open the box to feed it it’ll eventually just be two different kinds of dead), and that there are stars in the universe billions of years older than the universe itself.”
Wolves by K.L. Armstrong and M.A. Marr- categorized as JUV but I enjoyed it!
“Water does not resist. Water flows. When you plunge your hand into it, all you feel is a caress. Water is not a solid wall, it will not stop you. But water always goes where it wants to go, and nothing in the end can stand against it. Water is patient. Dripping water wears away a stone. Remember that, my child. Remember you are half water. If you can’t go through an obstacle, go around it. Water does.”
