Review: Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief

[Goodreads]: Percy Jackson is a good kid, but he can’t seem to focus on his schoolwork or control his temper. And lately, being away at boarding school is only getting worse-Percy could have sworn his pre-algebra teacher turned into a monster and tried to kill him. When Percy’s mom finds out, she knows it’s time that he knew the truth about where he came from, and that he go to the one place he’ll be safe. She sends Percy to Camp Half Blood, a summer camp for demigods (on Long Island), where he learns that the father he never knew is Poseidon, God of the Sea. Soon a mystery unfolds and together with his friends — one a satyr and the other the demigod daughter of Athena — Percy sets out on a quest across the United States to reach the gates of the Underworld (located in a recording studio in Hollywood) and prevent a catastrophic war between the gods.

SeriesTF2019: May Readathon | TBR

It’s finally time for another readathon! I’ve been so busy and mentally tired this month, I think this is just what I need.

This readathon will occur from the 20th to the 26th of May. I’ll be working every day this week except for Friday, but since I can read at work when the shop’s empty, I expect I’ll still be able to read quite a bit at least in the beginning of the week. I’ll try to read more in those days, as I’ll be much more busy on the weekend.
