If you’re looking for a book to read after a long day at work, may we suggest Marie Phillips’ Gods Behaving Badly? This light read (only 300 pages!) is perfect for you to unwind with at the end of the day!

It’s the 21st century and the Greek pantheon is alive and well… and holding onto mundane jobs: Artemis is a dog-walker, the good-looking Apollo is a failed TV psychic, Hermes is a businessman with a packed schedule and Aphrodite – the Goddess of Love – is a phone sex operator. Their powers, once at its peak in Ancient Greece, have now dwindled due to the lack of worshippers, and with them not being able to meddle in the affairs of humans like they’ve done way back then, they’re bored. Until a minor squabble between Artemis and Apollo catches two humans in a crossfire of godly proportions that is! Can these two ordinary mortals harness their inner hero and replicate the feats of the mythical heroes of days gone by?

While both books touch on mythical gods living in contemporary times dealing with the concept of “mortality”, Gods Behaving Badly  is Neil Gaiman’s American Gods fluffier cousin, doling out a serving of lighter comedy as opposed to American Gods’ heavier literary approach.

Gods Behaving Badly is available at Kinokuniya.
