This right here! This is my kinda post. I live for folklore and mythology in books and love nothing more that learning all about new cultures, my one problem… there was no way I was going to be able to narrow this down to 5, so I may have cheated. The book below are some of my all time favourite reads or are on my TBR, and a huge part of that is the fact they are all based around some kind of mythology or folklore. To help me cheat, I’ve narrowed these down to continents and then included all the books I have read ( there are probably loads more out there) that feature in that continent. Have you read any of the below? Or have any of them on your TBR’s? Let me know in the comments.
