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!

Top Ten Tuesday: Bookish Places I’d Love to Visit Someday

Hello there, and happy Tuesday! Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl where there is a topic and you make a list that best fits that topic! This week’s topic is a very fun one, and one that I am very excited for: Book Events/Festivals I’d Love to Go to Someday (Real or Fictional. Submitted by Nandini @ Unputdownable Books). I kind of changed it though, and instead did bookish places that I’d someday love to visit.

Rereading all of the Percy Jackson books in a day | no I’m not crazy, I just love books

Hello everyone! I’ve been reading quite a bit in the last week, and I was even planning on doing attempting a 24 hour readathon on Tuesday. However, I woke up late, and was really tired, so I went back to sleep and ended up sleeping for another hour! When I woke up again, I didn’t really feel like reading for a full 24 hours, so I figured, why not just reread the whole Percy Jackson series. (‘Cause I’m logical that way.) Anyways, it took me about 12 hours, but I read all five books, which was honestly really fun! Anyways, below I’ve written my favorite parts of each book, and then attached some pictures of quotes I enjoyed. I also put in some pictures of my pets who visited me throughout the day! Happy reading!
