What is it about?
(Blurb from GoodReads)
Maisy Parker isn’t asking for a lot in life. Just good friends, good fun, and finally reaching one hundred thousand followers on Instagram.
She’s well on her way to all of that, until one drunken dare ends up with a cut hand, blood sacrifices, and a thousand-year-old prison opening to reveal a giant of a man.
Finding herself with a Titan of a problem, she does the only thing that makes sense in that situation: selfie. Because he’s beyond hot, and that has got to be worth twenty thousand followers.
Only it turns out, this is no joke.
Cronus is really a Titan, and he’s set out to destroy the leader of the Greek pantheon.
When Maisy makes a colossal mistake, unleashing an untold evil on the world, Cronus is the only one that can help her.
Maisy is starting to see that she should have been less interested in Instagram and more interested in the impending end of the world.
An end she quite possibly caused—not that she’s admitting to anything just yet.
Thoughts on Releasing The Gods
#GodsAreHot #GodsAreJerks #SorryNotSorry
Two of my favorite authors team up to create a funny, if fast, modern tale of historical proportions. We’ve got Titans, Greek gods, the fates and a millennial who really just wants to reach those 100k followers on the ‘Gram. Cute, funny and timely… if a bit annoying at times. Seriously, the girl talks in hashtags like it’s an official language.
Favorite Line (and no…. I am not putting any Hashtags here….)
A guy didn’t give you his hoodie unless he wanted to fuck you. (67%)
- She’s immature and flighty, but there is sooo much more to her.
- The Titans are hot.
- Hashtag heaven.
- Pop culture galore… bit bothersome, actually.
- The hashtags… I laughed, I got annoyed.
- Where do these emotions come from? I don’t get it, there’s no build, just attraction, and that even feels startling from Cronus.
- Girl needs to read a dang book.
- Ok…. how is she so accepting of all of this? I mean, seriously? He just walked out of a dang wall!! How is that ok? Where is your freak out? #TooAccepting #WheresTheFreak?
First Person, Single POV
YA worthy (that means upper teen, 16+)

My Final Verdict on Releasing The Gods
No matter how you hack it, this book is just plain fun. It’s modern, witty, strangely intelligent and fast paced – at least action wise. Well written with a moving plot, it jumps into the narrative and keeps running. #JustBewareOfTheHashtags… Free on KU
