***warning*** plot spoilers for character deaths in Harry Potter and The Book Thief in Qu 11. In Qu 3 there are plot spoilers for Game of Thrones season 3.
1) Odin-Favourite Stand Alone
Leader of the Norse Gods, God of Wisdom, Poetry, Battle, Death, Wine War
I don't know where to start! The zombie book The Return Man was a good one.
2) Thor-A Book That Hits You In The Feels
God of Thunder, Weather, Warriors, Strength, Storms
I did have a bit of panic worrying about Woof the beagle who was forever in danger in this horror thriller.
3) Biggest Book Plot Twist or Character Betrayal
God of Mischief, Thieves and thrives on Chaos
*spoilers* The whole story of Snape in Harry Potter has so many plot twists that I had to mention it. Lots of twists in A Song of Ice and Fire too! The Red Wedding, Tyrion killing his father..
4) Frigg-One True Pairing
Odin's Wife, Goddess of Love, Marriage, Fertility, Fate
It's a toss up between Mercy & Adam or Warren and Kyle, Anna & Charles or Cat & Bones!
5) Heimdall-Favourite Second Book In A Series
God of Loyalty, Faithfulness and protects bi-frost bridge connecting the Nine Worlds
I totally love Living Dead in Dallas from the Charlaine Harris Southern Vampire series!
6) Baldur-Favourite Male Character
Beloved Son of Odin & Frigg, twin brother of Hodor
There are just so many! I'm going with Fitz, hero of Extinction Horizon series who lost his legs in Afghanistan and now fights variant zombie creatures. I also have to go with the brilliant Deacon Chalk in the James R Tuck books...and Warren the gay werewolf in Patricia Briggs Mercy Thompson books.
7) Sif-Most Beautiful Book Cover
Thor's Wife, Goddess of Hervest, known for her beautiful hair
It has to be a recent boxset release of Harry Potter. The covers are beautiful and I could look at them all day!
8) Frey-Book/Series That Makes You Happy
Brother of Freya, Lord of Weather, God of Light, Summer, Agriculture, Fertility
Well it just has to be Harry Potter hasn't it! This is my favourite comfort read to cheer me up when I'm sad or to help me out a reading slump. I have the original children's cover hardback and paperback sets, the Stephen Fry audio cd set, part of the US paperback and part of the adult UK hardcover set PLUS the paperback and hardback sets of these amazing recent covers!
9) Freya-Favourite Book Setting
Goddess of Love, Beauty, Fertility, War, Wealth, Growth
If I was choosing which world to live in it would be the Harry Potter magical world so I can do spells, go to Hogwarts and shop in Diagon Alley! However Westeros does fascinate me with all the amazing places GRRM has created. I'd love to see Dragonstone, The Eyrie and Dorne! I'd live at Winterfell and have my own dire wolf (I LOVE winter!!!) and maybe cuddle up to Jon Snow at night...I'd love to see this world.
10) Tyr-Favourite Book With A Big Upheaval/Epic Fight Scene
God of War
Has to be Michael Stephen Fuchs Arisen book 5 'Exodus' where tens of thousands of zombies attack the USS John F Kennedy while it is helpless on a sandbar with special forces trying to parachute onto the ship! I've never been so excited by a battle scene!
11) Uller-Character Death That Affected You The Most
God of Death, Winter, Archery, Hunting
Dobby. I'll never forgive JK Rowling for that! I sob when I read the book or watch the film! The death of Hans at the end of The Book Thief comes a close second. And something from Monster Haven that I won't talk about in book three!
12) Favourite Book With An Epic Journey On Water/Ocean
God of Wind and Sea
I don't recall a book that fits this category.
13) Valkyrie-Favourite Strong Female Character
Valkyries are Strong Female Warriors
I read a lot of books with strong women! I'm going to pick three that are strong in different ways. Arya Stark is just a young girl in GRRM's series but she is smart, brave and able to take care of herself. I love her journey in the Game of Thrones tv series. Katniss Everdean is a brave and tough young woman in The Hunger Games and I loved her. Hermione Granger is intelligent, brave and always has a plan. I like seeing someone with brains taking a leading role.
14) Aesir/Vanir-Favourite Book Crew
Two groups of Norse Gods, Old Gods and New Gods
The gang from RL Naquin's Monster Haven series. Maurice the Closet Monster who cleans and bakes when stressed, Iris the male Skunk Ape, the brownies, djinn, reapers, fairies, pooka...they are such a great group of characters! Also loved Deacon Chalk's team in the James R Tuck books and the Pack from the Mercy Thompson series by Patricia Briggs.
15) Seipyrts-Favourite Sidekick (non human)
Odin's Eight Legged Horse
Oberon, the poodle & sausage loving hound from Kevin Hearn'e Iron Druid series! Also Maurice the Closet Monster from Monster Haven deserves a mention.
