Greek Mythology Books For Adults

Greek Mythology Books Adult

Thanks to BookTok, Greek Mythology is now recognised as something that isn’t reserved for young adult book lovers. The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller is a much older novel for adults.

In this post, we wanted to issue a look at Greek Mythology books for adults that you might not have known existed. Don’t expect to see Percy Jackson on this list though. We will be doing another on Greek Mythology Young Adult books.

Jennifer Saint

A Greek Mythological author that we were introduced to recently is Jennifer Saint. She has written several books on female figures in Greek myth that don’t get much coverage. She has written about:

  • Ariadne
  • Elektra
  • Atalanta
  • Hera (her most recent book)

Madeline Miller

We haven’t read any of Madeline Miller’s books, we do own one of them. We’ve also seen her two most well-known books on the shelves of our local retail stores.

  • The Song of Achilles
  • Circe
  • Galatea
  • Heracles’ Bow

Costanza Casati

One of the youngest authors on our list of Greek Mythology books for adults is Costanza Casati. She has written three books, but only two are Greek Myth-based. These include:

  • Clytemnestra
  • Babylonia

Natalie Haynes

Natalie Haynes has written several novels on Greek Mythological figures. Her books include:

  • A Thousand Ships
  • Stone Blind
  • Pandora’s Jar: Women in the Greek Myths
  • The Children of Jocasta
  • Divine Might: Goddesses in Greek Myth
  • The Furies
  • The Ancient Guide To Modern Life

Luna McNamara

Luna McNamara is a new author and has written one book which is Psyche & Eros. She has another book coming out in 2025.

Honorary Mention: Homer

You cannot have Greek Mythology books for adults without mentioning Homer who wrote The Iliad and The Odyssey.
