Aaaah! I loved this book, and the emotional roller coaster I went through leaves me unsure if I‘m mentally ready for the next book. Well, until then, know that I really enjoyed this book and recommend it! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I must say there were a lot of main characters. I confused Hazel and Piper quite often, because I don't know them so well. However, all the divisions they made for beating new obstacles was a nice touch. In almost every chapter they formed a new trio, which gave new dynamics. I liked the chapters from Percy's POV the best, because he remains the original hero. We met awesome monsters and the cliffhanger was thrilling! On to the next book!
5✨ This series is so much fun! I‘m glad I still have two books to enjoy. We follow four main characters: Percy, Leo, Piper, and Annabeth. Annabeth is really the main storyline though. These characters along with others have one main quest, but they have to split up and each split has its own adventures. The main task through the series will obviously conclude on the last book, but the mini adventures along the way keep you on the edge of your seat
I feel like this third book in the Heroes of Olympus series is really where things start to take off. I really loved seeing this group of demigods take on such a big quest. The fact that they had to figure out how to work together in pretty dire circumstances really heightened the tension. I also think this book really allowed us to get to know Annabeth more than we have in the past.
Continued on IG and GR
It was fun dipping back into this world & esp. seeing all these characters working together. Bouncing btwn their perspectives was excellent, and the stops on the quest were fun & led perfectly one to the next. A few parts did drag a bit, and there was a great deal of repetition of their missions & the various prophecies that they were following that felt unnecessary. Still willing to see where their quest goes from here.
And Leo is still awesome.
Things I loved about this book (the best Riordan I have read so far):
1. The gang is all together! We get so many PoVs.
2. Annabeth's solo quest
3. More of Leo's backstory
4. I got to google Archimedes. #rabbithole
5. I also got to google Athena Parthenos. #rabbithole Did you know that there is a to-scale replica of the Parthenon complete with Athena Parthenos in...Nashville, TN? So that's weird.

I am loving this second series. This one has a lot of POV characters out on the quest and it was sometimes a little hard to keep track of. But I loved all the myths and legends.
I remember that episode of Myth Busters. That was an awesome show.
I made a suggestion for their show once and they actually did it. One of the great moments of my life. 😁
Enjoying the tagged book whenever I get time to spend on it. We just watched The Princess Bride. I‘m currently charging my new iPad mini and will fool around with it soon. Thanks to @LibrarianRyan @TheAromaofBooks @Butterfinger @wanderinglynn for the input! We decided to go with the familiar platform and hope that helps. I am so not tech functional!
Here‘s the kiddo doing an online ballet class, because she‘s cute. #keepLitsypositive
I started this today, hoping it‘ll stick. The last few days I‘ve had no time to myself at all, and any attempts at reading have fizzed out.
I appreciate all the positivity here, but since this is my safe place I feel like I can say I‘m really struggling. The uncertainty of it all, the frustration for my daughter missing out on activities, craziness at my husband‘s work (military), and all the strain on me as the one holding it all (cont)
I really found this book interesting because its an adventure romance, my favorite genre. It's very sweet because Percy risks his life and lets go of the cliff knowing that he could very much die, but he does it for Annabeth.

How did you choose this book: Completing a series
Annabeth Chase is terrified. Just when she is reunited with Percy, it seems like Camp Jupiter is ready for war. And that's only one of her worries. In her pocket she carries a gift from her mother that came with an unnerving command: Follow the Mark of Athena, Avenge me.
I thought this was a great book.
It had a lot of ups and downs and offered a lot to the series.
Can‘t wait for the House Of Hades📚
Continuing the adventures of the demigods, the two groups from the first two books are united, and I found the combination very satisfying. Annabeth gets to shine, which I appreciated. All in all, a nice chapter in the saga.

1. My daughter getting her books signed by Rick Riordan at the LA Times Festival of Books!
2. No... my daughters like to watch AGT so I sometimes get sucked in.
3. I Contain Multitudes, by Ed Yong
4. Bookmarks... I love both but I probably have too many totes.
5. Between Heaven and Here by Susan Straight
Currently reading this book. Great book!!!
Rick Riordan is my top read author so far. If you haven't read any of his book start with Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief and so on...

Engaging and action packed and heartrending AND PERCABETH BETTER BE OK BECAUSE IM NOT.
My daughter got me into this series, when she knew I was reading this book she told me that Annabeth reminded her of me so much. After reading this book I feel stronger than wonder woman. Getting at last the pov of Annabeth and her fears and wits made me glad. She is everything I expected and more. Loved this book so much.
#CurrentlyReading I have been reading this for over 2 weeks but haven't read much because Netgalley decided to approve all my requests at once 😳 but I'm so glad to be back with my bf, Percy💜

How do I explain that??? Like honestly, my feelings are a wreck right now! I didn‘t expect that! Utterly beautifully brilliant! Wicked! Insane! Chilling!

"I try not to think, it interferes with being nuts"
Leo, The Mark of Athena. I'm getting so close to the end, the suspense is killing me and I have a fair few questions. I hope and pray that everyone in this book will be okay, you'd think by now I'd learn to not expect this from having feels shattered many times in books but alas, I'm hopeful ? #booklover #rickriordan #markofathena #percyjackson #booknerd #bibliophile #bookdragon #booklife
Page 265 and this book is just getting better and better. The writing is effortless and brilliant, Riordan weaves each character narration flows beautifully. Jumping between Percy, Annabeth, Leo and Piper's point of view, the rest of this book is going to be insane!
