The Missing Girls - Linda O'Neal
The Missing Girls: A Shocking True Story of Abduction and Murder - Linda O'Neal,Rick Watson,Philip Tennyson
A friend and co-worker of mine lent me this book. I love true crime, and had not heard of this particular case before.
What a sad, tragic story about two girls murdered in Oregon. Unfortunately if it wasn't for a third teen being raped, the murderer wouldn't have been discovered. I cried a couple of times. As a mom, it was tough to read about. The abuse and savage murders were too much for me. The manipulation and head games disgusted me to my soul. I had to put the book aside so many times.
The writing felt like reading a news report at times. Not throughout, but enough to sometimes be a snooze fest. It was the only downside to reading it. It also added to me taking a bit to read it.
I love true crime though. Reading facts and real stories excite me like reading a horror novel. I'm sure I'm not alone either, so pick his one up.

The Dark Prohecy
The Dark Prophecy - Rick Riordan

Vague spoilers for all Percy Jackson/Heroes of Olympus/Trials of Apollo that I've read so far.

tl;dr: the books are long but nothing is happening in them (or maybe I'm just not interested in the action? That's very possible).

Der verschwundene Halbgott // The Lost Hero!!!
Der verschwundene Halbgott (Heroes of Olympus, #1) - Rick Riordan

spoilerfree
german and english review

Inhalt: Jason erinnert sich an nichts mehr - nicht einmal an seinen Namen. Leo und Piper scheinen zwar seine Freunde zu sein, aber auch das kann er nicht mit Sicherheit sagen. Und als es die drei dann plötzlich ins Camp Half Blood verschlägt, wo angeblich nur Kinder von griechischen Göttern aufgenommen werden, versteht er gar nichts mehr ...
Allem Anschein nach gehören die drei Freunde tatsächlich zu den legendären sieben Halbgöttern, die den Olymp vor dem Untergang bewahren sollen. Kein Problem, los geht's -denn Leo treibt einen kaputten mechanischen Drachen als Transportmittel auf und macht ihn wieder flott!
Und dann gilt es auch noch einen seit längerem verschwundenen Halbgott zu finden, einen gewissen Percy Jackson ...

Meine Bewertung: Ich liebe es!!!

Oh Gott, es ist großartig wieder etwas in der Welt zu lesen, vor allem etwas Neues, nachdem ich ja immer nur die Percy Jackson Reihe gelesen habe. Ich wusste echt nicht in welche Richtung die Serie hier gehen würde und war vorher auch wirklich jedem einzelnen Spoiler aus dem Weg gegangen, was garnicht so einfach war.

Ich bin total begeistert. Von den Charakteren, der Story. ALLES.

Die drei neuen Hauptcharaktere sind schon jetzt meine Babies. Ich liebe Piper so sehr. Und Leo. Jason auch, nur nicht so sehr wie die anderen Beiden. Ooops. Ich finde aber seine Geschichte unheimlich spannend und interessant. Die Freundschaft der drei ist einfach alles. Sie sind noch nicht auf dem "Percy, Annabeth, Grover sind meine Babies" Level, aber ich hab ja noch einige Bücher übrig.

Ich bin wirklich auf den Rest der Serie gespannt und wo das alles hinführt.

***

Summary: JASON HAS A PROBLEM. He doesn’t remember anything before waking up in a bus full of kids on a field trip. Apparently he has a girlfriend named Piper, and his best friend is a guy named Leo. They’re all students at the Wilderness School, a boarding school for “bad kids," as Leo puts it. What did Jason do to end up here? And where is here, exactly? Jason doesn't know anything—except that everything seems very wrong.

PIPER HAS A SECRET. Her father has been missing for three days, ever since she had that terrifying nightmare about his being in trouble. Piper doesn’t understand her dream, or why her boyfriend suddenly doesn’t recognize her. When a freak storm hits during the school trip, unleashing strange creatures and whisking her, Jason, and Leo away to someplace called Camp Half-Blood, she has a feeling she’s going to find out, whether she wants to or not.

LEO HAS A WAY WITH TOOLS. When he sees his cabin at Camp Half-Blood, filled with power tools and machine parts, he feels right at home. But there’s weird stuff, too—like the curse everyone keeps talking about, and some camper who's gone missing. Weirdest of all, his bunkmates insist that each of them—including Leo—is related to a god. Does this have anything to do with Jason's amnesia, or the fact that Leo keeps seeing ghosts?

My review: I love it!!!

Oh god, it was just the greatest to be back into the world and to actually read something new than just rereading the Percy Jackson series. I didn't know what to expect from this series and I avoided every single spoiler, which wasn't that easy.

I'm totally excited about this. The characters, the story. EVERYTHING.

The three new characters are my babies already. I love Piper so much. And Leo. Jason, of course, not as much as the others but I like him. Ooops. But I find his story super interesting and just fascinating. The friendship between these three is everything. They aren't on the "Percy, Annabeth, Grover are my babies" level, but I still got a few more books left.

I'm just totally excited to read the rest of the series and I'm sooo looking forward to finding out where this will go.

Book review : The titans curse Rick Riordan
The titans curse - Rick Riordan

October 4 - 19

Summary - When Percy Jackson receives an urgent distress call from his friend Grover, he immediately prepares for battle. He knows he'll need his powerful demigod allies at his side; his trusty bronze sword, Riptide; and . . . a ride from his mom.

The demigods reace to the rescue to find that Grover has made an important discovery: two new powerful half-bloods, whose parentage is unknown. But that's not all that awaits them. The Titan lord, Kronos, has set up a devious trap, and the young heroes have just fallen prey.

Hilarious and action-packed, this third adventure in the series finds Percy faced with his most dangerous challenge yet—the chilling prophecy of the Titan's curse

favorite quotes “Wow,” Thalia muttered. “Apollo is hot.”
“He’s the sun god,” I said.
“That’s not what I mean


Let us find the dam snack bar," Zoe said. "We should eat while we can."
Grover cracked a smile. "The dam snack bar?"
Zoe blinked. "Yes. What is funny?"
"Nothing," Grover said, trying to keep a straight face. "I could use some dam french fries."
Even Thalia smiled at that. "And I need to use the dam restroom."
...
I started cracking up, and Thalia and Grover joined in, while Zoe just looked at me. "I do not understand."
"I want to use the dam water fountain," Grover said.
"And..." Thalia tried to catch her breath. "I want to buy a dam t-shirt.”

 

Do you always try to kill people when they blow their nose?”
