What to Read Wednesday: Greek Mythology

Happy What to Read Wednesday! This week we’re talking about Mythology. When we studied ancient Greece for homeschool history we took an epic side journey into mythology, and lingered there for an what seemed like a golden era– during which time we partook of both fictional and historical literature with the gluttony of Dionysus himself.

Rick Riordan‘s the modern master when it comes to mythical gods and goddesses, we devoured his entire Percy Jackson saga with the ravenous zeal of Medusa. (his volumes give a tamer overview of oft mature lore)

His other series, Greek Heroes, is also highly acclaimed, though I confess we’ve yet to read them.

On the Big Screen:

Each of the two Percy Jackson movies, both old and new renditions of The Clash of the Titans, The Wrath of the Titans, and Disney’s Hercules are great films on mythology that we’ve found to be suitable for impressionable eyes.
