Publisher: Penguin Group (Aug 2013)

Format: Paperback (342 pages)

Source: Brought

Synopsis:

This time the stakes are higher. Percy, who is the son of Poseidon, now has to watch his back everywhere he goes because Kronos is rising.  Although there is a minor problem that is a little bit closer to home- Luke is planning to invade Camp Blood by using a Labyrinth. It is now Percy and his companions` job to find a way to stop Luke and his evil team.

Review:

This book was a thrilling read that kept me caught the whole way though. I had enjoyed the entire book so far in this series and I couldn`t wait to read this book.

I really enjoyed the narrative of Percy in this series. For some reason Riordan present Percy in a way that makes me immediately like him. Normally I would be able to understand the male point of view, however with Percy I was able to understand him. Additionally it could also be due the humour of Percy. Percy has a universal humour that makes him very accessible and so I was able to enjoy his character.

Although, in this book I didn`t enjoy Annabeth`s character. Before one of my favourite characters was Annabeth because she was strong, clever and very inspirational. However in this book she wasn`t very open and I know it was because she upset, but to me she seemed very angsty. I also thought Percy and Annabeth` relationship would improve, but I was a little disappointed.Read More »

A Reflection on my Reading and Life…

It`s quite scary how this month is now July, to me it still feels like March. Another month means it`s time for another reflection post.

A Reflection on my Reading life is a monthly (ish) theme here on Life is Sweet in Books where I talk about the books I have read and my life. I thought this would be a better post to make than a wrap up post because it is less restricted and it allows me to be more original.

Percy Jackson series

From my last post, I have successfully completed the Percy Jackson series! Like any other book lover out there, I can tell you that I love this series and it has become one of my top favourite series out there! I love the adventure that Percy has and the family aspect that Rich Riordan embeds in the books. I am also a huge lover of Greek Mythology.

Sophie Someone by Hayley Long

This book was a little out of my comfort zone because I don`t really tend to read books that evolve around a girl trying to find out her heritage and where she actually comes from. However I was determined to read a different book in order to widen my reading experience. I quite enjoyed this book as it was very emotional and the secret language in this book was an unique experience.Read More »

Books I want to read during Summer 2016

Hello,

I know it`s already a few weeks into summer, but I desperately wanted to make this post, as it might encourage me to actually read the books. 

Summer is a season where there is no school and many people will be holdiay, this means that I will have a lot of time to read. However, sadly, I won`t be reading on the beach aka the ideal place to read during the summer. Although this doesn`t mean I won`l be out in the sun- I definitely have to get that vitamin D. 🙂

First of I want to finish reading the Percy Jackson series, because I have been enjoying them so far and I can`t believe I have been putting off reading it. I wished I read it when I was younger because it is a series that I know I would have enjoyed, but alas! We can`t turn back time, therefore I want to read it asap. I am also loving Camp HalfBlood and it`s a place that is on my fictional to visit places!Read More »
