‘Allo Mes amis!
It has been almost a month since my last book review! That is WAY too long a wait for me maybe, I don’t know about you guys.
Alrighty then, let’s get started!
The title of this book review, Goddess Girls, is also the name of a book series by Joan Holub and Suzanne Williams. I only have two of the books in the series:
As you can probably see these two so far are focused on two of the Greek Goddesses; Athena and Aphrodite. A quick note for those of you who are not acquainted with these Goddesses: Athena is the goddess of Wisdom and the good side of war. Also weaving. Aphrodite is goddess of love and (of course) beauty.
So, the first book I’ll tell you about; Athena the Brain, is about Athena when she’s a bit younger. In the beginning she’s living with her best friend, Pallas, with no idea who her parents were, until she receives a letter scroll from her dad Zeus. She’s invited to attend MOA, Mount Olympus Academy, where she meets all the other Goddess Girls, Aphrodite, Artemis, Demeter and a couple minor goddesses and all the God boys. She enters the Science fair and has to try and keep the mega secret, secret from the horrible Medusa.
The second book; Aphrodite the Diva, is some what similar. Aphrodite is failing Hero-ology, so she decides to try to get some extra credit by making up a lonely hearts club for mortals. Only thing is one letter gets torn in half and needs to find it! She meets Isis, the Eygptian Goddess of Love, and they get into a serious fight to find out who is the true goddess of love. Will Aphrodite win?
Both of these books are great for ALL ages and are funny! I love them both!
