Hey! I am Zander. For starters you should know a little about me before i start blogging. have a dog and two cats, and I love sports! Anyways, lets get to my new favorite book The Trials of Apollo by Rick Riordan. I find a great interest in Greek Mythology. his book is about the god Apollo. He was thrown off of Mt. Olympus because he apparently started a war. Apollo does not think so though. He was mortal and he was scared and confused.
[/spoiler] Apollo gets jumped and a little girl named Meg goes and helps Apollo. Apollo is lost and confused and is losing his godly memories quick! He needs to get to camp halfblood.
Rick Riordan has another great book about Greek gods and demigods? Yes he does, and it is called The Lost Hero. The Lost Hero is a young adult fiction book, which is my favorite genre. It is my favorite genre because books in this genre use strong vocabulary. I choose to read a book by Rick Riordan because many of his other books have been very good. One recent title that I have read is Flush by Carl Hiassen. This book is about how Catherine struggles to get through life as her younger brother, David, gets in the way. David has autism and doesn't understand when not to do things. This frustrates Catherine but throughout the book she works through it. I recommend this book if you are looking for a short, yet entertaining, book. I choose to read The Lost Hero because I have heard many good reviews about it. Currently I am just a little bit into this lengthy book but it is good so far. I know that Jason, the main character, forgets everything about himself and where he is at. He wakes up on a bus holding some girls hand who he has never seen before. But he tries to fit in until a fight breaks out. Jason ends up saving someone from falling off a cliff and beating up two other people who he has never seen before. Oh, and Jason also has a magic coin that turns into a sword. Rick Riordan's style is very live and energetic. In the first two chapters there is lots of action. It is a little early in the novel to make any predictions but the plot is developing pretty quickly. One passage that stands out is when Jason first wakes up. He is completely lost and has no idea whats going on. I think we can all relate to having atleast one moment like this. That's about all I have to say about The Lost Hero so far. But I will keep reading and update you guys soon!
Amy and Dan and all the Cahill relatives have come together to say goodbye to their grandmother. She has left a very cryptic will, where the people who have been listed in the will are given a choice...take $1 million dollars and go on their way or give it up and using clues find the secret of the Cahill Clan. Amy and Dan, both orphans, have decided to take the challenge. Their aunt, their grandmother's sister, has stated that she will give them to CPS in MA if they do this and she is willing to follow through. They convince their au pair to help them on their quest.
They follow Benjamin Franklin from Massachusetts to Pennsylvania and then to France.
In this instance, I started with the first book and my girls loved it! I borrowed the audio version (again, driving in the car) and they were with me and when we got home we had to finish playing the audio so they could hear the ending. I think I will be borrowing the rest of the story. This has many different authors and I am interested to see where the story leads and how different authors will move the story along.
