Percy Jackson Series
Percy Jackson and the Olympians Boxed Set - Rick Riordan

The Percy Jackson series is a really great series that has had spin offs. It is a great series for advanced readers in the 4th or fifth grade. But also a great series for middle schoolers to read. I think that both boys and girls will enjoy this series. You could probably use this series in the classroom as whole group reading in the 4th or 5th grade. It also teaches the students about Greek Mythology.

The lightning theif
The Lightning Thief - Rick Riordan

This story follows the adventures of Percy Jackson as he attempts to save the world from Zeus wrath at the theft of his master lighting bolt. 

 

This book i would recommend for any grade level but lets just say third. I would use it to teach a lesson on how even though everyone feels different and alienated at times we can all find where we should be in life.

Review: Percy Jackson and the Olympians series by Rick Riordan
Percy Jackson and the Olympians 5 Book Paperback Boxed Set (New Covers W/Poster)[PERCY JACKSON & THE OLYMPIANS][Paperback] - RickRiordan

Goodreads summary:

Because the summary of the last book (Percy Jackson and the Last Olympian) will give you spoilers, I decided to give you all the links of my reviews of the previous books in this series. In my review of the first book you'll see a summary too. Here are all the links:

#1: click

#2: click

#3: click

#4: click

 

My opinion:

I like the conclusion to this series, but that's all I can see about my opinion. (If I could still rate in in comparison to the rest of my ratings of this series I would give the last book 3.5 stars). This series is just a series that you either love or just appreciate, and I ''just'' appreciate it. I admire Rick Riordan as an author and he has done an excellent job creating this world, especially with all the mythology in it, but it was sadly enough my cup of tea (anymore). I know it's middle grade and mostly I don't mind reading books when a character is much younger than me, but I honestly think that this series really is for middle grade readers (I know older reader love it too though, but sadly enough not me). The thing for me was that I just don't like fantasy stories that much anymore (which I already knew, but I still wanted to read it). I still recommend it to everyone who (still) likes to read fantasy and/or about mythology. I just wished I read it when I was a lot younger. 

 

What is your opinion about this series?

Review: Percy Jackson and the Battle of the Labyrinth (Percy Jackson and the Olympians #4) by Rick Riordan
The Battle of the Labyrinth - Rick Riordan

Goodreads summary:

This summary has some spoilers in it from the previous books, so that's why I'm not showing it to you guys.

 

My opinion:

While reading it I had a feeling between liking it and really liking it, but I wasn't obsessed. It took me more than ten days to read a book that only has 360 pages, so that says something. This is why I give this novel 3,5 stars. I still really appreciate this series and recommend it. I cant't say much more because it'll spoil the previous books too. If you like Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, I'm sure you'll like this book in this series too. Unfortunately that was/is my least favorite book (I still like all Harry Potter books, of course, but I've never been a fan of tournaments and sports events), because there were quite a few elements that were similar.

June Wrap-Up

In June I finished one book I started in May, did I decided to dnf a book and read two novels (which one of them I technically finished today but that's okay) and one little black classic. These are the books I'm talking about:

- In The Afterlight by Alexandra Bracken (The Darkest Minds #3) 2/5★ review

- Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie 4/5★ review

- The Gate Of A Hundred Sorrows (short story collection) by Rudyard Kipling 2/5★ review

- Gunfight at the Oldlake Canal by GB Hope (dnf'ed it halfway through)

- Percy Jackson and the Titan's Curse (Percy Jackson and the Olympians #3) by Rick Riordan 4.5★ review

 

The author was being weird while I was reading Gunfight at the Oldlake Canal and because I didn't love it that much I decided to dnf it. If an author acts weird and not that kind, I can't seperate the book from the author. Maybe I'll pick it up in the future and finish it, but at the moment I have no desire to do so. 

 

You also might be wondering why I still haven't picked up A Court Of Thornes and Roses, but I decided to allow myself to read only one series at a time instead of two. This because I read so slowly atm and I want to remember everytime much more which means finishing a series faster than I did before. I want to start that series after I've finished Percy Jackson and the Olympians. 

 

I read a bit more than in the months before, but in my opinion still not that much (that's also because of tv shows like OINTB and because of a happy personal reason). However, I finally have a future again when it comes to school/work but that'll start in September, so I have now much time to read because I don't have to worry about anything anymore atm. Next month I hope to read The Kite Runner, To Kill A Mockingbird, Along for the Ride, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and much more, but we shall see. 

 

What did you read in June?
