Books with ARCHERY

One of the things I like to do when I'm not reading or writing is shoot with a bow and arrows. I very much love everything to do with archery, so naturally, when a book includes archery, it basically makes it an insta-read.

Here are a few of my favorites!

1.) the Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins (you knew this was coming)

Katniss Everdeen uses a bow to hunt for food and defend herself.

2). the Hawkeye comics (they count, okay? Okay?)

Hawkeye uses a bow as a superhero and an Avenger. If you go back far enough, you get to see him learn archery in the circus, woo!

3). The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien (Woo, Legolas!)

Legolas uses a bow to fight and generally be completely awesome.

4). The Odyssey by Homer (Odysseus is a badass. End scene)

Odysseus famously strings his bow to prove to his wife that he's worthy of marrying her.  (it's a long story) Then he and his son use bows to kill her other suitors. (again, it's a long story, but hella worth it)

5). The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis

Susan Pevensie gets a bow from Father Christmas to use in the battle for Narnia.
