I had a harder time getting into the Sea of Monsters, compared to the first book, and didn‘t like it quite as much as The Lightning Thief. The second half was excellent though, and I breezed through to the end!

4thhouseontheleft +15 for #TBRread and +5 for book to movie adaptation and since I'm not a fan of the cover design I“m counting this for Ugly Cover on #WinterReadsBingo (edited) 1d

I‘m having a hard time getting into the second Percy Jackson book. Someone tell me it gets better?

At least I am enjoying some hot and sour soup on this cold, rainy day! Just battled through crazy parking lots and shoppers to pick up a prescription and rabbit litter. I don‘t think I‘m stepping foot near a shopping complex until January. People are being jerks right now! #booksandlunch

gradcat There‘s something very ironic about the way people behave the closer it gets to a religious holiday, imho.... 2d
LibrarianRyan It does, it just takes a bit. 2d
4thhouseontheleft @gradcat I know, right? 2d

4thhouseontheleft @LibrarianRyan Thanks! That may give me enough boost to sit down and keep reading this afternoon. 😊 2d
Sharpeipup It is a slower read. 2d
gradcat You have a rabbit? That just entered my brain...I just read “litter,” and thought cat. Pictures? 🐰 🐇 ♥️ (edited) 2d
4thhouseontheleft @gradcat Yes! We have 2 🐈 and one 🐇. The rabbit uses a different litter. I‘ll try to tag you in some of my past rabbit posts. 2d
LeahBergen I love Hot and Sour soup! 2d
gradcat I would love to see your bunny. Is it @monalyisha that also has bunnies? Or another Litten? I know I saw some posts when I first joined last year. 🐰♥️🐇 22h
monalyisha @gradcat It‘s me! #rabbitsoflitsy (edited) 22h
gradcat @monalyisha I thought so! You‘re the first person that I knew that had “freely roaming” rabbits in her house! I think they‘re so adorable!! 🐇😍🐰 22h

To be 100% honest this was a horrible take on the novel. The art wasn‘t that pleasant to me, and so much of the story was left out, the “battle” scenes were cut so short that they lost their luster and just made the story boring. If this wasn‘t based on the novel I already read I would have given this a much lower score.

The Lightning Thief is a fun read! What a ride!

Percy Jackson‘s life is about to turn upside down when he learns he is not just a kid, but the son of the god, Poseidon! And his best friend is no regular kid either - he is Percy‘s keeper, and oh! half goat!

Adventurous and entertaining. I think this would make for a fantastic read aloud for upper elementary school students. Definitely appreciated how so many gods‘ stories were included.

NovelGirl82 This and the follow-up (HOO) are some of my fave series & re-reads! 2w
Lucy_Anywhere This series is always my recommendation for reluctant middle school readers! 2w
Bookish_Gal This is still one of my favorite book series all these years later. AnnaBeth is a Boss! 2w

A good follow up to The Lightning Thief. Riordan does a good job introducing the characters & history for those who haven't read the first book. I love the comic relief weaved through the story, keeping things light & fun. The story moves fast & the characters are growing in depth. There are some moral lessons to be learned in addition to the bits of Greek mythology. I am really enjoying this series & finished this in 1 day. On to the next one!

I'm so glad I finally read this. Yes, there is some less mature writing since the intended age is younger, but it was still incredibly entertaining. I love the detail of the Greek mythology & the somewhat flippant attitude of the writing made things both interesting & fun. The overall mystery wasn't obvious, but clues allowed the reader to discern the ending if they paid close enough attention. I will definitely be continuing on with the series.
