    One thought on “Greek Gods #Squadgoals”

    1. Srsly, these books are to die 4!!! Okay, once again I was blown away by the immensely creative way this book was written. As an adult, some of the text shortcuts were not ones I understood or knew what they meant, but fortunately there was a bit of a glossary to help with that. As a high school librarian, I love how well this explains in an easy to understand way the Greek myths and really how messed up all of those gods were. It only took me two thirty minute lunch breaks to read this, as it is [...]

    2. This book was an absolute riot from start to finish. I'm a grown woman, and even I found myself laughing at some of the clever jokes told through fictional social media posts and emojis in this book. While it's not likely to win any literary awards (it is, after all, written in "chat speak"), it is a perfect overview of Greek myths told in a way that most middle and high school students will understand very well. As a bonus for us not-so-savvy adults, there's a helpful glossary in the back expla [...]

    3. While the charm of this emoticon- and text-abbreviation series wears off pretty quickly once you've read a few of them, it still is strong enough to keep teen and middle graders reading--and it might just make readers of some of them. In this installment, that clever author, Courtney Carbone, sends up the Greek gods and goddesses in all their glory--and insecurity. Readers will meet Zeus who's always looking for a hookup, Oedipus who tries to thwart the dire prophecy about his future, Narcissus [...]

    4. Greek Gods is a unique little book that pretty much gives you a run down of all the gods and how they came to be by the gods themselves.What would things be like if the Greek gods had cell phones, well there conversations would be a lot different I am sure and this book gives us that view. It's written all in text and tweets from the gods themselves to their spouse or family members. You can read about all the different gods and what happened to them or how they get themselves in trouble and it' [...]

    5. Ever wonder what the Greek Gods would be like in today's smartphone, text-speak, social media society? Well, Greek Gods #squadgoals is for you. It's a goofy, fun slim book that tells the entire story of the Greek Gods pantheon all thru texts, emojis, and social media posts. Having a base knowledge of original myths helped make this especially funny for me, but you don't really need to be that familiar with the myths to still have fun reading the book. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this and would [...]

    6. It's hard to make me laugh, and I rarely LOL when reading, but I busted out laughing several times in this little gem of a book. This is the first of these books I've read and the first I've purchased for my HS library, but it certainly won't be the last. I handed it off to my teenagers several times, and my 15-year old daughter is reading it now. Many stories of the Greek gods are told via texts, emojis, and social media. And they are so stinkin' creative! It is a very quick and thoroughly enjo [...]

    7. All of the books in this "series" are cute, but this one was fantastic. I laughed out loud at almost every page, and just had a total blast reading this. This was definitely my favorite in the series!Oh, and I'm so glad there was a glossary in the back. I know the common text abbreviations, of course, but there were still a ton used here that I had to look up.

    8. Wow this was such a creative way to portray the Greek gods!!! Since I am such a nerd I got all the jokes that the gods made and I just REALLY LOVED HOW funny and short and awesome it was !!! I need to check out the rest of these!! Once I started I couldn’t stop it was addicting 😆

    9. Greek myths via text. Quick read, captured the essence of the myth not necessarily all the details. Gift idea for Rick Riordan fans who already own everything he has written. 😉

    10. These books are just so fun. They’re short and sweet, but they’re a great laugh and I like that she chose some not-so-popular tales from Greek mythology.

    11. Hilarious social media version of the Olympians. I loved how they told the lengthy story in emoticons and group chat speak. Thanks to my school librarian for sharing this with me.

    12. This is such a fast, fun read, I giggle snorted so hard I thought I was going to do permanent damage to my nasal passages. What a gun, millinneal twist on Greek mythology.

    13. Original review: HERE Watch Macy Kate's Vlog HERE I read Greek Gods while waiting in the parent pick-up line for my daughter & Macy Kate and it was hilarious! The modern day spin of texting & social media combined with the historical personalities of these God/Goddesses was really fun. I mean who doesn't like a good #hashtag or funny emoji? 🤓📱📚There are several books in this series, OMG Classics, and I actually want them all. They are such a fun way to introduce classics, in thi [...]
