Grishaverse Readathon Recommendations (Part One)

Are you participating in my Grishaverse readathon but don’t know what books to pick for your prompts? This post is the first of four, in which I will give you some recommendations for each of the prompts, and I’ll also tell you which Grishaverse books you can pick for each of the prompts! In this post, I will be focusing on the team prompts, as well as the series prompts!

Part One | Part Two | Part Three | Part Four

I’ve tried to mostly recommend books I have read myself, but for some of the prompts, I picked books I still have on my TBR but fit into the prompts perfectly.

Team Prompts

Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard by Rick Riordan (Fantasy/Mythology)
