The Goddesses book series by Clea Hantman were possibly on of my favorites when I was a young teenager. I believe I re-read this series about four times. I found this book at the book fair when I was in elementary school and once I had finished I begged my father to get me the rest of the books in the series which he did with trouble since they were hard to find.

This juvenile/pre-teen series is beyond adorable. Its twist on the classic mythology keeps the young reader guessing. I absolutely loved the first two books when I was in elementary/middle school, and I'm only now finishing the series as an adult.

Even coming back to it years later, this series has some awesome attitude and a tone perfectly suited to its audience. The Furies' poems are funny and clever, Thalia's voice is distinct and fun to read, the plot (despite some shallow points) is light an

An innocent, sweet, elementary school book about three goddesses sent to Earth by their father Zeus after an accident they caused. (But it really wasn't necessary.) It's interesting to see the pure outlook they have on Earth and it's society and their human-like reactions when the worst happens. It's a cute book. But, it's meant for little girls, so I have to give it more of 2.5 rating because, as a high schooler, not really my taste.

#2. Goddesses by Heaven Sent was an amazing book because it shows you that it doesn’t matter how you are, you always have to be yourself. Also when Zeus sent his daughters from heaven to earth it shows me that there is going to be a time when I have to take care of my own and that I have to learn how to be responsible. Also that no matter how hard you think your life is there is always a solution for every problem.

Okay I liked this one. Didn't think I would since I don't go in for contemporary YA, but this one was a little different in that our high school heroines are banished goddesses from several thousand years in the past. They now have to figure out how to survive high school while each fulfilling their tasks before they can return to Olympus. Very cute. I'll read more in the series.

This book is for young readers, mostly likely middle school to maybe freshman readers. Its a cute story and while I had a hard time getting into from the beginning as I read more I enjoyed the story more. I like that its a little series of books, but not sure that I will be looking for book 2 anytime soon.

I loved the first book of this series. The three teenage goddesses portrayed in it are simply hilarious. As if suddenly living on their own in the mortal world wasn't bad enough, they're stuck in the modern mortal world to boot.

On the reread, this series is just adorable. Is it the best writing? Well, no, but it's charming, it's an easy read, and I'm glad to have found it again for the nostalgia. Plus, Greek mythology is always "in" ;)

I remember getting this book at a book fair when I was in middle school. When I found it again a month ago, I promptly downloaded it onto my nook. I love the take on Greek mythology and the use of the Muses.

Very good. It was especially good for me because it was based off of greek mythology. I am a big fan of Greek myths or really any mythology.

I wasn't expecting this book to be that good because the cover was awful. But surprisingly I liked it a lot I plan to read the next one.

I should re-read this series; don't remember much except I'm pretty sure I shipped Apollo/Thalia like mad. They were so cute.
