The Lighting Thief: book, movie and musical | ft. some reasons on why I love the book, why I despise the movie, and why the musical is pretty amazing

Two months ago Kay @ Hammock of Books did a post with her thoughts on the Percy Jackson movie. It was so hilarious, and brought back memories of the first time I watched the movie. I didn’t watch it when it first came out, since I was four, but I did watch it a few years ago, when I was eleven or twelve, I think.

So, I thought, why not do a similar thing? So I did, even if it took me a really long time. I watched the movie and wrote down my thoughts on it as I was watching it. That’s what I have below.

Since I don’t want it to be a completely negative post, I’m also going to include a few reasons why I like the Lightning Thief musical, which I was also able to see, and some of my favorite parts from the book itself.

The thing is, The Lightning Thief started as a book, and now it’s more than that. Not that it’s become a musical, movie, and is soon to be a show, but now, it’s a universe. Everything that Rick Riordan has written is so much more than a few stories, and it all started with this one book.

So, I’m going to be going through the different ways that the original book has been told, and share my thoughts!

The ‘Failed Readathon’ Readathon sign up post

Hey! I read about this readathon a few days ago when Laura @ The Book Corps posted her announcemnt post, and I immediately wanted to do it. There was only one problem: I’ve only ever participated in one readathon before. That was The Reading Rush which I actually did just last week.

However, I set a rather ambitious TBR for it and read five of the nine books. So, I’m going to be reading the four books that I didn’t read during The Reading Rush throughout the month of August! It works out perfectly!

100 followers q & a | and maybe some other questions from a q & a I should have done a few months ago

Hello! Today I finally bring to you my answers to the questions that a few of you asked me about a month ago. And also the answers to the questions I got five months ago that I never answered. Sorry guys!

This has been a lot of fun to do, but I think that in the future I might structure it differently, because I sort of just threw my plea for questions randomly at the bottom of one of my posts. Next time, I’ll do it differently!

Anyway, I’ve answered all of the questions I got below, and it was really fun!
