    Ahh so good! Rick does it again!
  • Jesse (JesseTheReader)
    I enjoyed this so much! Though I will admit that I didn't enjoy it as much as book one. Percy is such a fun narrator and I'm excited to continue following his journey.

    (A-) 80% | Very GoodNotes: It finds emotion and character in shame and open wounds; set beyond humanity’s shores, adrift in primeval bedlam.

    A guy in Greek armor drew his sword and charged, but slipped in a puddle of pina colada. Really, who can not love a book with lines like that? I actually had the urge take this book in my hand with a strong grip and whirl it towards my head for waiting so long to read this series. I just kept putting it off for some reason or other. Luckily I came to my senses.For the most part things have been pretty quiet this school year and Percy even makes a...

    3.7 STARSTHE REVIEW IS POSTED3.7 STARS Tomorrow, I'd be be on my way to my favorite place in the world-Camp Half-Blood.This is the last day in Percy's 7th grade. For the first time in his life, he almost makes it an entire year without getting expelled. No attacks or anything that can make him expelled and tomorrow he'll be going to camp Half-Blood but then Percy's mother tells him that Chiron sent her a message last night saying that it might no...

    Another 5* from Celyn. I read this book to her out of order, having read book 1 then book 3 before it. I hate it when people do that, but the books are pretty stand-alone and we picked the wrong one when leaving the house in a hurry.Actually I can now better appreciate the cross-book story and it's quite clever, so that's good.This volume continues the mix of Greek myth, modern America, and teenagers. Percy battles through various monsters in blo...

    Ugh, I’m sooooo late with this review (not that anyone has been holding their breath since – let’s be real – I’m probably that 0.01% who hasn’t read Percy Jackson in their life) but hey better late than never, right?Soooo, this book. This book was epic. For a middle school series, Rick Riordan truly went all out. The characters, the plot, the battles, the adventures; the pre-wedding it was all spectacular. (Notice all the vague adje...

    Wowowowo!! What an amazing adventure it was!! I loved it! Percy's narration was still amazing! Now Camp Half-Blood's magical boundary has been weakened as someone has poisoned the Pine Tree which strengthen it. There is only cure to reverse the effect of poison. For this cure, Percy has to go on a quest to find it. A fatal quest!I loved everything in this book!! Action scenes were amazing.Chariot Races were also amazing.Every single character in ...

    Loving this series.Between working my way through this series, the Harry Potter series, and Miss Peregrine’s series this year, I am enjoying myself immensely. I am apparently newly obsessed with middle grade fantasy and comic books. Who would have thunk it. And to know Riordan has three other series in addition to this one just makes me childishly joyful.

    What is it with me and not knowing how I feel about rating a book lately! I would like to give all the stars to Tyson! I am in love with Tyson and what he is =) I'm really hoping to get more of him in the other books. I thought the rest of the book was good and I love reading about all of the creatures. Of course, Percy and them are usually getting in trouble with all of said creatures. Well, not the sweet ones. I look forward to finishing the bo...

    I need to take Tyson, wrap a blanket around him, give him a stuffed Rainbow and protect him from everything.

    “Don't you ever feel that way? Like you could do a better job if you ran the world?''Um... no. Me running the world would be kind of a nightmare.” this and the final book were tied as my favourite I enjoyed Sea of Monsters SO much. After reading The Lightning Thief, I wasn't sure if I would ever continue this series. It didn't grab me as I would have wanted and I didn't feel very connected to the characters. But Sea of Monsters FINALLY got m...

    I think the humor is definitely my favorite thing about these books. I wish I had read them a few years ago but I'm still really enjoying them as an adult too. I can't wait to read the next one! Also, can we just talk about those Goodreads emails "You've finished the book!" I know, Goodreads. I just told you that myself.

Percy Jackson Series Review:The Lightning Thief ★★★★★The Sea of Monsters: See below!The Titan's Curse: RTCThe Battle of the Labyrinth: RTCThe Last Olympian: RTCI always get a bit nervous going into the second book in a series. There's a lot of pressure on the author to prove that the first wasn't just a fluke, and that they can keep the story compelling over the course of a number of midd...

    Look mom! It’s a book! It’s a movie! No, it’s a book that is better than the movie!!!Now, I know that is the case in 90% of the cases, but here it is so painfully obvious. The movies butchered Kronos’ arc and that is one of the best arcs in any book I’ve ever read.Seriously, Kronos and that main minion of him (I won’t name him because I don’t want to spoil things) are such amazing villains.And then you have Riordan’s jokes. Bring ...

    Fetus May was wrong this deserves 5 stars and more I love my children s o mu ch o h myg od I was literally tearing up at the end over the characters is this allowed

    I don't get it. I just don't really like this series. My two kids would argue to the death with me about them, and I don't know why I don't like them, I just...don't. Maybe I don't like ancient Greeks mixing with 21st-century Americans. Maybe it's Annabeth's recurring refrain of "oh my gods" that drives me insane, or maybe it's the fact that you can't turn 3 pages without Percy being in mortal peril. (Too much adventure is bad for the heart.) May...

    “Families are messy. Immortal families are eternally messy. Sometimes the best we can do is to remind each other that we're related for better or for worse...and try to keep the maiming and killing to a minimum.” This might be my least favorite book of the series. Reading this book in one night, I kind of felt like I was being left out by some of the characters that I was attached to from The Lightning Thief. Percy Jackson still slays as alwa...

I know I’ve mentioned this before, but I somehow missed the Rick Riordan train entirely as a kid.

    NOOOOOOO! OMG. WHY IS IT NIGHT TIME NOW? I NEED TO GET THE THIRD BOOK NOW. LIKE RIGHT THIS MOMENT NOW.Hold on...let me go check out the movie before I post my review.......I've finished watching the movie, and I just want to scream and cry for everything that got lost and twisted in translation in the movie adaptation. But I get it, movies shouldn't have to adapt a book with exactness. But I stick to my belief-books are almost always better than...

    I have to say this is my favorite book in the entire series. Wonderfully written and filled with new characters, The Sea of Monsters is a real page turner! Within the first three paragraphs, Riordan intordunces a funny new character: a friendly 8-year-old Cyclops named Tyson; son of Posiden!The magical girl-who-became-a-pine-tree, Thailia, has been poisoned. The magical boundary that protects Camp Half-Blood is weakening, and deadly monsters atte...
