⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Going back to my mythology nerd roots with this one! I had a lot of fun with this, and I‘m excited to see where the trilogy goes next!

Gotta admit. I'm pretty sketchy with my Norse mythology.
But I loved this book, certainly a fresh take on being a demigod.
A good addition to Rick Riordan's mythologically based stories :)

Here I am once again reading Rick Riordans book completely out of order. I thought “hey this about Norse gods it won‘t connect to PJO”.. it connects lol. But not by a lot, at least for the first book. I actually enjoyed this so much, Norse God‘s are my fav and I enjoyed these versions of them. Also I was glad the parentage of Magnus wasn‘t predictable, the banter the characters had was actually funny. Only down side was Sam she annoyed me so bad.

Sweetkokoro Also I forgot to mention i am now 4 hours into #24b4monday let‘s see how far I get this time. Although my stopwatch on my phone reset, so I lost that initial 4 hour marker :( 8mo

?"My name is Magnus Chase. I'm sixteen years old. This is the story of how my life went downhill after I got myself killed."?
Magnus Chase is probably my second favourite character out of all of the characters in Rick Riordan's mythology books.

Generally pretty good. I really loved the diversity of the characters. I also really enjoyed how the characters were able to turn a weakness into an advantage and how the mythology was woven throughout the story. However, I did find Magnus‘s tone to get a little irritating at times.

#NOSPOILERS I got pretty far into the book, but didn't finish it. I liked the humor and all, but to me, something felt missing and/or confusing. Yes, yes, the main point I stopped was that I had trouble understanding and interpreting the plot and what was going on. Also, part of it was, my therapist spoiled the second book for me. If I could read this head on, no break, no nothin', I would. I feel guilt for leaving a book I wanted to read. 7.5/10

I was wary picking up another #riordan book because I tried to read the #percyjackson series, and it was just a little bit too kiddish for me. I was pleasantly surprised. The #diversity in this book is absolutely impressive. From disabilities to religion, almost every character has something that makes them unique, and towards the end of the book, it‘s shown how those traits that in society might have been treated as a weakness becomes a strength.

I always enjoy Riordan's mix of mythology and the modern world! This book made me glad I had read about some Norse mythology last year, made me want to learn more, and made me laugh out loud several times. The characters are great and I love how they build friendships and work together.

JaclynW My son is reading the Percy Jackson series by this author. He has really enjoyed learning about Greek Mythology. I'm sure he will want to read the Magnus Chase series too (which I just discovered existed). 2y
Daisey @JaclynW The original Percy Jackson series is probably my favorite, but I have enjoyed all of his books that I've gotten to read. Are you aware of the other series? I think there are 5 now. 2y
JaclynW @Daisey I only know about the Greek, Norse and Egypt mythology books. I will have to look up the others. 2y

I always enjoy the crazy mash ups between the real world and Riordan‘s take on mythology, but I‘m finding the setting in this book especially entertaining since I visited some of the places mentioned during a trip to Boston a few years ago.

Here the characters are able to move between the nine worlds of Norse mythology by using the Make Way for Ducklings statues in the Boston Public Garden.

I don‘t need to start another book over lunch, but it sounds fun. This book has been on my TBR and off my class library shelf for far too long waiting to be read.

After analyzing my 2017 reading stats and seeing everyone else‘s TBR challenge goals, I‘m setting a more specific goal of at least 1 first read of a book from my shelves every month. This is the first one, because although I also own Jane Eyre, it‘s a reread.

It was okay, but not as funny and the characters not as likeable as I'm used from Rick Riordan's other books. I felt like the story lacked an arc of suspense, it was just one task for Magnus and his friends after the other. Not sure if I'm gonna continue reading this series.

Es war ganz okay, aber nicht so lustig, wie ich es von Rick Riordans Büchern gewöhnt bin. Mir hat auch ein Spannungsbogen gefehlt. Mal gucken, ob ich weiterlese.

First of all let me just say this book was amazing. I orginally picked it up because I loved Rick Riordan's percy jackson series when I was in elementary school. The plot was entertaining and absolutely adored blitz and hearthstone (their definitely my new #otp ).
And of course there were references to his previous series which were hilarious.
