According to my GoodReads account, I've challenged myself to read 25 books this year. When you think, "oh I can read 25 books in a year", you don't really realize that that's about a book every two weeks (or 2.5 a month). Now for some people that might be cake...however I'm at school 40 hours a week and then I also work on top of that. Yeah, have I bitten off more than I can chew? Maybe, but I sure as heck am not gonna let that stop me! So every month I'm going to fill you all in on what I read in the last 30 or so days! So let's begin :)
Keeping in mind that I've got a lot of reading to do, I've started off great! I read 4.5 books this month! WHOOOOOO. Of course it might also be because I've read these books at least twice each, they're super quick and only 370 some pages each....
Alright, so some of you might say "But those are kids books!" And sure, in some ways they are. But they are also some of the most action packed, mythology filled, characters-who-make-you-cry-both-happy-and-sad-tears filled, and moral lessons filled books you will ever find.
Wow, that was a great sentence, Sarah....
But these books, oh man these books. I forgot how much I loved them and how much they had taught me and have influenced me over the years. The second series (Heroes of Olympus) doesn't even compare. Every once in a while, after some intense and horrific thing happens in the books, you have to remind yourself that these are kids and would you have been able to stand your ground?
I could talk about these books forever, literally, but I'm going to stop myself before I even get started. But if you love Greek myth, have always been interested in the old gods- read these books!
I promise you, you won't regret it. Ever.
