Mythology Challenge

so this was found on Ashley's  blog whats your story? but had no origin blog and when I asked her where she found it, she told me it was on a page on goodreads.  so we'll just say thats its a mystery on to who originally wrote it. I'm also not giving myself a time limit on how long to complete it. it could take me a month to a few years. this ones more chill, and less stressful. but still looks supper fun!

1. Read a book about Greek gods

2. Read a book about ancient Folklore... (any)

3. Read a book about Dragons, featuring Dragons or has Dragons in it :)

4. Read a book about Vampires :D

5. Egyptian mythology

6. Read a book about a heroine from myth or folklore. This doesn't have to be a warrior, but merely a main character. Examples: Penelope, Helen of Troy, Lilith, Beauty.

7. Read a book about zombies!

8. Read about about gods in a modern context (Percy Jackson, American Gods etc)

9. Read any pre-1900 Vampire novel

10. Arthurian Legend - Think Geneviere, Merlin, the lady in the lake etc.

14. Read a collection of fairytales (old or new)

15. Read a book about a mythical monster, excluding those already nominated (currently vampires, zombies, and dragons). Monster examples: Kraken, Minotaur, Medusa, orcs. The monster should play a significant role in the story, not just be mentioned in passing or briefly encountered. To qualify as a monster the creature should be dangerous or hideous.
