Welcome back to Favorites February! This week I will be looking at the third book in the Percy Jackson series, The Titan’s Curse. This might be my favorite book in the original Percy Jackson series. There’s just so much to love about this book.
Percy, Annabeth, Grover, and Thalia are making a special winter trip to rescue some half-bloods and bring them to camp. But when the monster proves tougher than they expected, Annabeth goes missing. Percy and Thalia join forces with the Hunters of Artemis to rescue Annabeth and save Olympus from a mysterious monster with the power to destroy the Gods.

Hi friends! Welcome back to Favorites February, where I am re-reading the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series and discussing it along the way. Up this week, The Sea of Monsters, #2 in the series. Honestly, I completely forgot how much I enjoyed this book, and had a great time re-discovering it’s awesomeness. Please feel free to join in the discussion in the comments! ❤
Camp Half-Blood is in trouble. The magical tree that protects the borders from monsters has been poisoned, and the demigods are barely managing to stay alive. But Percy and Annabeth think they might just have a solution: the legendary Golden Fleece. Their journey to find it will take them through the perilous Sea of Monsters, on a route that very closely mirrors that of Odysseus in Homer’s The Odyssey. Yet all the while a bigger trouble is brewing… Continue reading “Favorites February: The Sea of Monsters”
Hello friends, and welcome to the first annual Favorites February! This month I will be re-reading the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series, and blogging about it as I go. This is one of my favorite middle-grade series, and I wish it had been around when I was a kid. I’ve really been enjoying the re-read. I got the box set for Christmas about three years ago and have never had the chance to read them, so I’m cracking these lovely books open for the first time and trying desperately not to ruin them!
First up, The Lightning Thief!
Percy didn’t ask to be a half-blood. It’s bad enough that he’s ADHD and dyslexic, and he’s been kicked out of six schools in six years, but he just found out his dad is a Greek god. That’s right, those Greek gods. Also, his best friend is half-goat, which is totally weird, his mom is missing, and his step-dad is a smelly jerk-face who is blaming him for his mom’s disappearance. Still, he gets to go to this cool summer camp where he learns sword fighting and archery and Ancient Greek, so life isn’t ALL bad. Until the gods issue a warning, and Percy only has until the summer solstice to prevent World War III. Three pre-teens trying to save the world. What could go wrong?

So as I mentioned in my 2018 post, I’m really looking forward to starting a short-term blog series titled Favorites February this year. I like re-reading things, and that’s about the time of year I usually get stressed at work and don’t feel like reading anything I’m not already in love with. Plus, alliteration.
This year I’m re-reading the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series. And I’m so stoked. I’ve been wanting to re-read it for several years and just haven’t had time. Rick Riordan always makes me laugh, and it’ll be the perfect light read post-baby.
Buuuuuuuut… I’m not really sure what I’m doing. lol
I need YOUR input! Below I’m posting a link to a survey. Please take a minute to let me know what you would be interested in reading.
Also, if you would for some reason be interested in like, reading with me or something, let me know in the comments. I’m not planning on doing a read-along or anything, I don’t have time to organize it. But a partner might be nice. 🙂
