review SPOILER ALERT! 2017-07-20 23:11
The Lost Hero
The Lost Hero (Heroes of Olympus, #1) - Rick Riordan

This book was too long. Seriously. Also Rick Riordan obviously never watched Charmed.

 

The references in this book were less obvious than in Percy Jackson and the Olympians but that might just be because I'd read those before and I was coming to this series fresh.

 

Also, this series needs some good Asian characters. Before I started Son of Neptune I actually googled Asian characters of Rick Riordan's because I needed reassurance some were coming... I was not disappointed and that's pretty much the reason I kept with the series. I mean, before Frank the best we had was Annabeth's stepmom who's in the series for all of two seconds.

 

The Lost Hero continues with this whole "too much" makeup/people who wear makeup are shallow/natural beauty is best bs idea. I'm still not a fan of that.

 

But I'm glad Riordan finally addresses the use of "half-blood" in the series (forgot to mention that in my PJO reviews... oops).

 

I also have a lot of thoughts about Piper's dad and his Hollywood career, but they're not organized in my head yet.

Reading progress update: I've read 18 out of 240 pages.
The Lost Worlds of 2001 - Arthur C. Clarke

So I picked this off my bookshelf yesterday while I was waiting for something. I have read only the first two chapters (again) but I had forgotten what an extraordinary writer Arthur C. Clarke was. The book itself is old with microscopic print and cost only £1.50! You wouldn't even get a coffee for that these days. I won't be in a hurry to finish it but I will dip in and out as I go savouring every quaint morsel.

Lost Boy: The True Story of Captain Hook - Christina Henry

I received this book in a contest and I enjoyed reading it. I never really like the sugar coated Disney Version. I believe this to be a more true version of the story of Peter Pan and Captain Hook. Well written and I enjoyed reading it. I looked through some reviews when I received it to see if I could let my 8 year old granddaughter read it first and didn't find anything. I read it and have given it to her to read. I will try to add her review in the future. If you like Peter Pan tales, you'll enjoy this one. Kept you wondering what would happen.

Somehow, I have ended up with a stack of very large books, plus I'm reading to a deadline.  All of them have holds on them. 

 

This may become like fishing--catch & release.  I'll see how much I can read over the Canada Day long weekend.
