Wrap Up: September 2017

1. Percy Jackson and the Sea of Monsters by Rick Riordan (Book 2)

I liked this book a lot better than the first book. I enjoyed that the plot had a theme, which was the sea, the monsters were sea themed and all in all it was a more cohesive story. Friendships developed and characters matured which I think has a lot to do with their situation as half bloods. 

Rating: 3.5/5

2. Percy Jackson and Titan's Curse by Rick Riordan (Book 3)

I was a bit put off in the first quarter of this book because there was some lines that were a bit misogynistic so I did not appreciate that. Also this book had the same erratic feel as the first book. Which was attack after attack after attack. I don't like that there are sooo many obstacles to overcome. However the last quarter which was the final battle (of this book) I really did enjoy.

Rating: 3/5

3. Percy Jackson and the Battle of the Labyrinth by Rick Riordan (Book 4)

For some reason I'm just not getting into this series. In saying that it's my favourite book in the series so far. The concept of the how to navigate the Labyrinth made no sense but it was an interesting twist. There were a few random obstacles (like always) that were out of place but I still had fun reading this book. This book more so than the others I didn't want to put down. And it's made me excited for the final. 

Rating: 3.75/5

4. Percy Jackson and the Last Olympian by Rick Riordan (Final Book)

This book got a little repetitive for me but overall this finale was epic. The lead up to the first battle was fascinating. You get a bit more insight into some of the characters' backgrounds and we meet some demigods who are actually very interesting. But when the battle began I just wanted it to end because it just kept going and going and its like we get it. But once we reach that final battle wow. Such a good ending. I'm not giving this 4 or 5 stars because there were bits where I was very bored but overall...solid finish.

Rating: 3.75/5

5. The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater

It took a while for me to get into the writing, for some reason I just couldn't get into it. I don't know if it was the story but I wasn't enjoying it. Half way through though I started to get more invested in the story. I was also surprised that there were some bits that gave me the chills. Overall I did enjoy the book but not as much as others seem to. 

Rating: 3.75/5
