Throwback Thursday #18: Prophecy of the Most Beautiful by Diantha Jones

Throwback Thursday is a bookish meme hosted every two weeks by me and Christina @ Booksane where we feature books that we've read in the past but are still crazy about. It could be a book you read as a child and still remember and love or maybe just a book that you haven't read in a long time and want to show your love for.
Each week we'll be featuring a new random question to answer!

Prophecy of the Most Beautiful (Oracle of Delphi #1) by Diantha Jones
Published March 1st 2012 by Diantha Jones


She has a destiny so great that even the gods fear her.

Constant hallucinations and the frequent conversations with the voices in her head, have earned eighteen-year-old Chloe Clever the not-so-coveted title of "Whack Job" in her home town of Adel, Georgia. With the onslaught of prescription medications and therapists threatening to push her over the edge, she wishes for a life far away from the one she has, a life where she is destined to be more than the butt of everyone's jokes and mockery.

Be careful what you wish for has never rung more true.

After living through an attack from her worst nightmare, she awakens to find herself far from home, surrounded by glorious riches and servants…and a few demigods who enjoy killing things. Upon learning that her favorite rockstar is an Olympian god, she is thrust into her new life as the Oracle of Delphi, the prophesier of the future, and the great Pythia that the gods have been anxiously awaiting to arrive for centuries. Setting out to fulfill the prophecy she has been given and to keep her family safe from a demigod Princess that wants her dead, Chloe learns of how great she is to become, all the while fighting mythical monsters, evading divine assassins and trying to outwit the ever-cunning Greek gods who harbor secrets of their own. In the hopes of discovering the Most Beautiful and the truth of her destiny, she strives to uncover the mysteries of the demigod Prince who has sworn to protect her with his life…and threatens to win her heart in the process.





I read this book in the summer of 2012 I think and I'm still loving this series. I'm so glad the author, Diantha Jones, asked me to review it back then.  I love the characters, the story, the writing and of course the greek mythology in it. Just amazing! If you haven't read this book yet you need to start now!




Question of this week:

Do you have a reading goal for 2014, if so how many books do plan on reading?


I'm taking it easy this year and challenged myself to 50 books on the 2014 reading challenge on Goodreads. 
If I should reach the 50 then I might up the goal a little.




How about you?
