Book Review: Aphrodite the Beauty by Joan Holub

Aphrodite delights in helping mortals in love, but she’s pretty annoyed at the constant attention she gets from the godboys at Mount Olympus Academy.


When she decides to give Athena a makeover, she’s a bit unprepared for the result. She didn’t count on all the interest Athena’s new look would get. And she certainly never thought she’d find herself jealous of one of her best friends!


But when the hottest godboys at school start ignoring Aphrodite, she learns that some boys are nicer and more sensitive than others–including a mortal youth who has requested her help in winning the heart of a young maiden.


Can she put her jealousy behind her and help him find true love?

I totally love this series. So cute for girls ages 8+. I often find myself slightly bored while reading middle grade books but that hasn’t been the case with this series. Joan Holub has put such a fun spin on Greek Mythology with these godboys and goddessgirls enrolled at Mount Olympus Academy.

The third book in the series Aphrodite the Beauty teaches the importance of being yourself and being a good friend.  It also deals with crushes on boys and jealously in friendship. 

This book had a myth I was unfamiliar with, Atalanta and the Golden Apples (which I looked up and read online after finishing the book).

I highly recommend this series to those young or old who enjoy Greek Mythology.
