Review: The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan

Percy Jackson is a good kid, but he can’t seem to focus on his schoolwork or control his temper. And lately, being away at boarding school is only getting worse – Percy could have sworn his pre-algebra teacher turned into a monster and tried to kill him. When Percy’s mom finds out, she knows it’s time that he knew the truth about where he came from, and that he go to the one place he’ll be safe. She sends Percy to Camp Half Blood, a summer camp for demigods (on Long Island), where he learns that the father he never knew is Poseidon, God of the Sea. Soon a mystery unfolds and together with his friends—one a satyr and the other the demigod daughter of Athena – Percy sets out on a quest across the United States to reach the gates of the Underworld (located in a recording studio in Hollywood) and prevent a catastrophic war between the gods.(Goodreads)

Only it’s different.

Books That I Got Last Week

Hello, bookworms! Sorry I’ve been quiet since my last update. As I mentioned earlier in my posts, I was away last weekend to visit my friends in Tokyo and I had another bout of inflammatory flare-ups supposedly from physical exhaustion caused by excruciatingly high temperatures in recent weeks.
For those two reasons, I didn’t get to read nor blog as much as I wanted 😦

That said, I did buy/get a ton of books during my stay in Tokyo and I’d love to share them with you today! Continue reading
