Myths express our basic need to explain and preserve the story of life. All cultures have mythologies that explain the origin of the world and the existence of good and evil, and when analyzed collectively, often these stories have more in common than difference. The classic stories of mythology have been repeatedly mined for inspiration and reinterpreted for modern times, and have been an ongoing trend in young adult literature. The drama of myths are particularly well-suited to provide the scaffolding for teenage stories, whether focused coming of age or romance and adventure. Fans of stories with roots in mythology should check out this eclectic array of YA novels inspired by myths and legends. Bull by David Elliott. This new release is a twist on the the timeless story of Theseus and the Minotaur.

My first bookish memories are of holing up in my closet my favorite reading spot and reading my illustrated ancient Greek mythologies for hours. My fascination with the soap opera—worthy cast of goddesses and gods, heart-breaking tragedies, and fantastical shifts from human to beast and back again has only grown stronger over the years. Greek mythology books retellings, translations, and commentary continue to be some of my favorite reads. Books are broken down by category: translations of the classics, fictional retellings, nonfiction commentary, as well as books for teens, middle graders, and kids. All book descriptions come from Amazon. When it comes to Greek mythology, you can go back to the source. Each new translator from the original Greek adds their own spin on the stories, highlighting certain sections and altering the words in profound ways.
