Book Review: The Hidden Oracle by Rick Riordan

Book Reviews | September 15, 2016

Even I, by now, am wondering if Uncle Rick is just milking it. I mean, to start up yet another series in the same universe is pretty damning. But at the same time, I love Greek mythology and the possibility of getting glimpses of Percy too much to resist. The Hidden Oracle is fun but still a bit […]

Book Reviews | September 27, 2015

Oh man. First of all, I just want to say ten thousand thank yous to Tiemen and the American Book Center for making it possible for me to read this early. It might very well be the most exciting review copy I’ve ever had the honor of receiving. Those who know me will probably know that Uncle Rick […]

Book Review: The Blood of Olympus by Rick Riordan

Book Reviews | December 18, 2014

It’s here. The end of an era. The end of Percy Jackson. NO NO, DON’T CRY, DEBBY. Breathe. In many ways, this was a nice conclusion to the Heroes of Olympus series, but in other ways, I couldn’t help but be frustratingly disappointed. So this review will be a long one. You’ve been warned. The Blood of Olympus […]

Book Review: The House of Hades by Rick Riordan

Book Reviews | January 27, 2014

At it’s close-to-600 pages (seriously? was all of that necessary?), The House of Hades took me an upsettingly long time to read. Clearly I read the rest of the series when I was not on a semi-strict reading schedule of two books per week, heh. Also I had more free time then. But all in all, Rick Riordan […]

Graphic Novel Review: The Lightning Thief

Book Reviews | October 10, 2013

When I saw this listed on the Book Depository, I just knew I had to buy it. It had to happen. I love the Percy Jackson series so much, so I honestly didn’t care that it would be the exact same story. The illustrations would make it a whole new and wonderful experience. In a way, I was correct, […]

Book Review: The Mark of Athena by Rick Riordan

Book Reviews | November 13, 2012

First off, I AM IN A GLASS CASE OF EMOTION. (Because the ending. Yeah.) *cough* So after devouring the original Percy Jackson & the Olympians series in May and the first two books of The Heroes of Olympus in June, the time finally came that I had to wait for the next installment. Ew, waiting. However, I was […]

Book Review: The Son of Neptune by Rick Riordan

Book Reviews | June 12, 2012

Wow. After The Lost Hero, which was extremely disappointing to me, The Son of Neptune is a definite improvement. I started really skeptically, and the first half was extremely slow and contrived, but the second half more than made up for it. The Positives I think should first give honorable mention to Ella. I think of all the […]

Book Review: The Lost Hero by Rick Riordan

Book Reviews | June 6, 2012

I have to say, coming off the high of The Last Olympian, this book is plain and simple: a letdown. There may be slight spoilers, so beware. Let’s start, however, with the positives. I was immediately ecstatic when I started reading because Riordan had decided to switch to third person narrative. I’ve always been a bigger fan of […]
