Percy Jackson & The Olympians: A Review
“When Percy Jackson receives an urgent distress call from his friend Grover, he immediately prepares for battle. He knows he’ll need his powerful demigod allies at his side; his trusty bronze sword, Riptide; and…a ride from his mom.
The demigods race to the rescue to find that Grover has made an important discovery: two new powerful half-bloods, whose parentage is unknown. But that’s not all that awaits them. The Titan lord, Kronos, has set up a devious trap, and the young heroes have just fallen prey.”
I am not mature enough to not fangirl over this series.
Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige
“I DIDN’T ASK FOR ANY OF THIS. I DIDN’T ASK TO BE SOME KIND OF HERO.
But when your whole life gets swept up by a tornado—taking you with it—you have no choice but to go along, you know?
Sure, I’ve read the books. I’ve seen the movies. But I never expected Oz to look like this. A place where Good Witches can’t be trusted and Wicked Witches just might be the good guys. A place where even the yellow brick road is crumbling.
What happened? Dorothy.
My name is Amy Gumm—and I’m the other girl from Kansas. I’ve been recruited by the Revolutionary Order of the Wicked, and I’ve been given a mission:
THE TIN WOODMAN’S HEART
THE SCARECROW’S BRAIN.
THE LION’S COURAGE
DOROTHY MUST DIE.”
Naturally, this sounds pretty awesome 🙂

Welcome to the center of (hopefully) educational ramblings!
Being a consumer myself, I like to research the products I intend to buy. You always want to make sure that the product will live up to your standards, tickle your fancy, and be physically appealing to the eye.
With books it’s more complicated. The cover can be an absolute Mona Lisa of covers, so devastatingly handsome it literally rocks your socks off and you must have it at any and all costs. The only catch? The cover was amazing and it looks fantastic on your shelf but the story… Gosh! The story is lacking. It took you months to read, pushing yourself to finish all those pages, only to leave you feeling empty and resentful of all the time you put in.
Well that’s the purpose of this blog. I won’t hold anything back. I won’t be sweet or nice if it isn’t warranted. I’ll tell you the nitty gritty details as to whether I thought it was an absolute win or an absolute fail.
Happy book hunting!
