The Lightning Thief

22 posts | 62 read | 3 to read
Percy Jackson is about to be kicked out of boarding school... again. And that's the least of his troubles. Lately, mythological monsters and the gods of Mount Olympus seem to be walking straight out of the pages of Percy's Greek mythology textbook and into his life. And worse, he's angered a few of them. Zeus' master lightning bolt has been stolen, and Percy is the prime suspect. Now Percy and his friends have just ten days to find and return Zeus' stolen property and bring peace to a warring Mount Olympus. But to succeed on his quest, Percy will have to do more than catch the true thief: he must come to terms with the father who abandoned him; solve the riddle of the Oracle, which warns him of betrayal by a friend; and unravel a treachery more powerful than the gods themselves.

Fantasy

January 2019 - February 3, 2019

I chose this book because Greek Mythology Interests me.

Zeus' master bolt, which holds the power to create lightning, was stolen. Poseidon, Zeus' brother was blamed for the theft. If Poseidon does not return the master bolt in time, Zeus will declare war with him. Poseidon sets his son Percy Jackson along with his friends on a mission to retrieve the master bolt. Will Percy get it to Zeus on time?

This a modern fantasy book about a 12 year old boy and his journey across the USA to catch a thief who has stolen weapons of mass destruction. This book won a Hampshire book award and it would be good for independent reading at a middle school level. #ucflae3414f19

ChrisC Www.rickriordan.com you could find a complete Lightning thief unit that includes vocabulary activities quizzes and more. The ELL strategy to use would be to integrate speaking, listening, reading and writing activities to engage students. The UDL strategy to use would be 5.1 to use for multiple media for communication. 2mo
DrSpalding Using the author as a resource is very wise. Much better information regarding what you would use on his website. Your English learner and universal design principles match well. 1mo

I‘m hoping to fly through the rest of my Percy Jackson book this afternoon so I can dive into all the GR Award nominees I currently have on the holds shelf at the library!

Anyone else “cramming” in a few reads before the first round of voting closes? 😁

4thhouseontheleft @Sharpeipup 🙌🏽🙌🏽 What‘s on your list? (edited) 2mo
Sharpeipup Pretty much every non fiction nominee... 2mo
4thhouseontheleft @Sharpeipup There are some really good ones in the NF category! I requested a few from the library, but they haven‘t come in yet. 2mo
Bookzombie The GR Awards always make me realize that I don‘t read a lot of recently released books. I think I counted 5 out of all the categories that I have read. 🙂 2mo

The best part of the book, in my opinion, is the fight with Ares

I would say this is a good fantasy book because it is super creative, but very relatable. It‘s relatable because it is for young adults and related to family troubles. I read the full chapter book.

Hey all. Today I want to talk about cover changes. I‘m talking cover changes in the middle of a series. Not new edition covers after the series was complicate. Meaning you will NOT see Harry Potter on this list.

Cover changes happen in adult books but not often. It happens frequently in kids and teen needs.

We are starting off with TLL. The original cover screamed read me to this adult, but it didn‘t sell well 👇🏻

LibrarianRyan So the publisher redid the cover for the paperback, and book 2 and a mega series was born. #coverchanges. 6mo
Oldschool_millenial I'd have bought that book as a kid! So cool! 6mo
LibrarianRyan @Oldschool_millenial I know right. I read it under that cover. We ordered paperbacks for a book club and got a surprise when we opened the box. 6mo

4thhouseontheleft That‘s a cool cover! 5mo
LibrarianRyan @4thhouseontheleft I know. That cover made me want to read it. But it wasn‘t selling well enough. Then again it was up against Hp. 5mo

What are everyone else's favorite #holidayreads? Despite having nothing to do with the holidays (or winter!) I often find myself rereading #TheLightningThief this time of year. Still one of my favorites! ♡

Today's #tarottakeover is #thefool and that's a card that I feel has tons of literary possibility! But I'm picking Percy Jackson! I mean, talk about improvisation and inexperience! I love how, for the most part, Percy took every lump and far out unknown situation head on! This series is a favorite!
@ErinSueG @WhiskeyMistress

ErinSueMreads Excellent choice! I haven‘t read the series but from everything I have heard it sounds like it‘s perfect 1y
madamereadsalot1 @ErinSueG you should read it! I'm actually planning a reread soon. They really are so good 1y

This book is the start to one of the greatest series in the world. I love Greek Mythology, so this was perfect for me. I have read this book about eight or nine times. That tells you how much I love it. I really recommend this book. I feel like anyone 3rd grade and up could read this. This is the best for teens though. It‘s great for all ages!!!!

One of the best books I've ever read. It's got a perfect blend of everything - mythology and humour, to name a few.

Although I love many kid and YA fiction books, this one was not my cup of tea. I tried hard and got half way, but found every excuse not to pick it back up. It is very silly though, so I can see why kids like it.
