Book Review: Aphrodite the Diva by Joan Holub and Suzanne Williams

Posted on the 26 October 2011 by Darthclavie @DarthClavie
AphroditeAt First Sight: Aphrodite doesn't like when people think she's all beauty and no brains, and she knows her getting a D on hero-logy isn't going to help matters, particularly after that small incident known as the Trojan war, which she helped to start.
So - and even though she really wanted to take a holiday with her friends during Hero Week - Aphrodite convinces Mr. Cyclops, the herology teacher, to let her work on a special project to bring her grade up. 
So she starts The Lonely Hearts Club, where she plans to use her skills as Goddess of Love to help mortals find love. But a small problem arises when her first case leads her to Isis - the Egyptian Goddess of Love - and soon she finds herself in competition with the other goddess girl, trying to find a match for one of the most annoying boys ever! much as she much rather like be Isis friend.
Second Glance: This was such a fun book to read. Not only because the Goddess Girls series is one of my favorite series, but because I like the road the authors start to take with Aphrodite the Diva. I love how they are starting to expand on the lovely world they have already created. 
Aphrodite is such a girly, adorable girl, and I loved how she wanted to prove she was more than just a pretty girl, that she was smart and a hard worker too - much as she would rather spend her time shopping, she still takes her job seriously. She's funny and loves her friends and honestly believe there is a crush for everyone.
Also, I love seeing the consistency throughout the stories, and how -while every book can be read on it's own - how the world of MoA keeps going and growing. 
Bottom Line: An adorable addition to an adorable series. Aphrodite the Diva is cute, it has heart and it's a lot of fun to read. 
Favorite Quote: "Just when you thought you had godboys figured out, you didn't!"
