I was tagged for this by the wonderful Lori @ The Reading Fairy back in May for this, and I keep putting off writing this post. I don’t know why though: these prompts are PERFECT and May, the creator of the tag did an amazing job with everything!! Anyways, here we go!Continue reading “The Percy Jackson/Heroes of Olympus Book Tag”
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!Continue reading “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”

Happy new year’s eve! Or, I guess, if you’re in a different time zone, it might already be 2020! Anyways, this week’s Top Ten Tuesday, a weekly meme hosted by Jana @That Artsy Reader Girl, is Favorite Books I Read in 2019.
1 It Ain’t So Awful, Falafel, by Firoozeh Dumas is amazing, and one of the best books I’ve read all year.
2 The Mother-Daughter Book Club series, by Heather Vogel Frederick. I know that this is actually 7 books, but I had to include the whole series. The characters, the plot, everything about these books are incredible!
3 Sarah’s Key, by Tatiana DeRosnay, is one of the best, and most powerful books that I’ve read this year, and in my entire life!
4 All of Rick Riordan’s books. I read all of them. Actually, I haven’t read his adult books, and I still have yet to read the latest Trials of Apollo book, but in May, June and July, I reread the Percy Jackson series, I read the Heroes of Olympus series, the first three Trials of Apollo books, (that was all that had been written by then), the Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard series, and all the other ones. I love those books, and I think that Rick Riordan’s writing is amazing, and the way that he adds on to different cultures’ mythology is really cool.
5 I just finished The Wolf Wilder, by Katherine Rundell a couple days ago, and it was amazing. The story, well, I did not expect it to be so good. It was really, really good, and had a very unexpected ending!
Sometimes I do less than ten books because I can’t come up with enough books, but right now, my computer isn’t working very well, and isn’t letting me add any more images, and some of the images are only partially showing up, so even though I could probably come up with another 25 of my favorite books from 2019, I’m going to leave it at this.
What are some of your favorite books you read in 2019? Have you read any of the ones on my top ten list? Chat with me in the comments below!
