Last month, it was all about Percy Jackson. This month, it’s all about the Heroes of Olympus, the second Percy Jackson series. I’ve enjoyed these books as much as I enjoyed the last Percy Jackson series. Including the three Heroes of Olympus books I read, I finished a total of five books this month.
The Mark of Athena and The Son of Neptune by Rick Riordan
The Heroes of Olympus: The Lost Hero by Rick Riordan
Jason wakes up on a bus with no memory of where he is. All he knows is that a girl named Piper is holding his hand and a guy named Leo is claiming to be his best friend. The three of them discover their demigod heritage at Camp Half-Blood where they undertake a dangerous quest to save the goddess Juno. Just like the first Percy Jackson series, I’ve really enjoyed this one. The viewpoints of the different demigods switch back and forth which gives the reader a chance to really get to know them.
The Heroes of Olympus: The Son of Neptune by Rick Riordan
Percy Jackson is fighting monsters in California, trying to find his way to a camp for demigods. His only memories are of his girlfriend, Annabeth. After finding his way to the camp, he undertakes a quest with his friends Frank and Hazel that will allow his memory to return .
The Heroes of Olympus: The Mark of Athena by Rick Riordan
When the Greek demigods’ meeting with the Romans goes wrong, the seven demigods of the prophecy sail off to find the Doors of Death and stop Gaea from destroying the world. This was the most exciting and heartbreaking book so far. I was pretty close to tears at the end!
The Scorch Trials by James Dashner
After escaping from the Maze, Thomas and the other Gladers are sure they are safe. However, WICKED has other plans for them. The Gladers are forced to face madmen and burning hot deserts in the race for the cure that will save them from the fatal disease they were infected with. I read The Maze Runner several months ago and loved it. I finally got the second book from the library, and it was just as good. I read it all in one day, and it was super exciting and thrilling.
The Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis
This is the classic “letters from a demon” tale. Wormwood, the older and wiser devil, instructs a younger tempter on how to cause a new Christian to stumble.
