I was just looking at my clustr map and flag counter, and I was amazed at how far I have come even this year. I would just like to say thank you for supporting me and my blog because without you, I wouldn’t have as awesome as a blog as I think I have. Just remember, it’s all about YOU! My goal is to post over the summer as much as I can. Hopefully it can be accomplished, but you know how summer goes, right??!!??!!??!!??!
Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Battle of the Labyrinth is an exciting fiction novel that keeps your attention until the end. Percy Jackson has to go to high school orientation, because he got kicked out of his last school, again! While he is there he notices that things don’t seem quite right, and later he figured out why! He ran into a mortal who could see through the mist and a cheerleader who isn’t who she has been disguised as. Camp Half-blood realizes that some how they are going to have to fight the titan lord, Kronos. They figured out that they would have to travel through the labyrinth, underground tunnels that have no reason for their twists and turns. Will Camp Half-blood be saved, or will the Titans over rule?
I really liked the continuous writing style from the books before. I like how the characters keep building and growing to their fullest potential. I think that one of the biggest strengths of the book is the writers ability to keep the reader interested the entire time. Every time I picked up the book, I would read about 100 pages because I just couldn’t put it down!
I would recommend this book to anyone who has read the series before because it is intense! First of all, the book keeps you interested to the point where your heart is racing because you favorite character is in a fight for their life. It also teaches you many things about Greek Gods and Greek Mythology. Finally, I would recommend this book because it makes you think that you are running for your life just like the characters in the book.
I read this book in the Fourth Quarter, and I would give it a 10/10. I finished and surpassed my goal, so I am done with my reading challenge! I read 1,232 pages this quarter.
The Titan’s Curse by Rick Riordan is an amazing book in the series of Percy Jackson and The Olympians. The Titan’s Curse is the third book of the series and is just as thrilling as the others. Percy knew something was wrong when his friend Grover called him and told him to come help him right away. Percy got his friends Annabeth and Thalia to come along to help. When they get to Grover, they found out that he has found two knew half-bloods! Half-bloods are people were one parent is mortal and the other parent is a god/goddess. The three team up to get the half-bloods back to camp, but they run into a problem…. the Titan curse! Can the team figure out how to ward off evil while also coming to peace with people from their pasts? Will they be able to have others join the team? Will they be able to save Mount Olympus? Figure out by reading The Titan’s Curse!
I wouldn’t go so far as to say that The Titan’s Curse is the best book I have ever read, but it is definitely up there. I have two favorite series, the first one is Percy Jackson and the Olympians and the second one is the Mysterious Benedict Society. So even though this book is in one of my favorite series, I wouldn’t say the book itself is my favorite book. Having said that, I really, really enjoyed this book!
I thought that the writing was very beautiful in a way that isn’t beautiful. In other words, it was gory enough that it kept me interested, but it wasn’t so gory that I wanted to put it down. So, if you like books that have some gore to them, the Percy Jackson series is the perfect book for you!
I would recommend this book to others because it is an interesting book and it doesn’t let you put it down. I also would recommend it because, since it is a series, it is still building off of the first two books. This allows the reader to know the characters really well. Finally, I liked it and would recommend it because it makes the Greek God mythology seem like it actually is happening right now.
I read this book in the Fourth Quarter and I would give it a 10/10. I only have 329 pages left, so I’ll keep you posted!
The book Percy Jackson and The Olympians the Sea of Monsters written by Rick Riordan is a fiction book that has a great setting. Percy Jackson has been at his school all year without interruption by monsters. During his last day of school, at gym class, Percy and his friend Tyson become in a dodge ball match with Cannibal giants. Cannibal giants are huge monsters that could rip you to shreds in a matter of seconds. (cool right) Annabeth, Percy’s friend, shows up to the dodge ball match and Percy gets confused. After the match ended and Tyson saved the day with his magical heat touching hands, Percy, Annabeth, and Tyson headed off to Camp Half-Blood with the fear that something major was about to happen. Once they got there they realized that the magical boarders that protect Camp Half-Blood have gotten poisoned. Annabeth, Percy, and Tyson realize that they are going to have to go on a quest to find this magical fleece that will save the camp. The only problem is that they aren’t supposed to leave Camp Half-Blood according to Chiron, an important leader within Camp Half-Blood. What will they do in order to save the camp. Will they leave and disobey orders and risk getting suspended, or will they stay at the camp letting others take over the quest?
I thought that the writing style of the book was just my type because it was so suspenseful and exciting. I really like the Percy Jackson series because it doesn’t allow you to put the book down even for one minute. I also like how the author kept making major twists that you never would see coming!My overall response of the book would have to be that it is interesting. I think it was so appealing to me because I enjoy fighting and intense situations without the goriness that some books offer. The Sea of Monsters provided just that for me which is why I was so happy with the book.
I would recommend it to others because although it is fiction, it makes it seem like all of the things happening are real. I also would recommend it because it isn’t a really hard read, but it is a good book. Finally, I would recommend it to people who have liked other books that I have read. The series is much like the Mysterious Benedict Society in where it doesn’t allow you to put it down!
I read this book in the Fourth Quarter and I would give it a 10/10. I only have 641 pages left so I’ll keep you posted!
I read Deep Down Popular by the author Phoebe Stone for Reading Counts and I passed my test with flying colors! I completed 280 pages, and I would give this book a rating of 5 out of 10.
I have 920 pages left to read in the 4th quarter! I’ll keeep you updated.
Deep Down Popular has been so good, but it is getting even better as it keeps going! I only have 40 pages left so hopefully I can finish it tonight, but the only way I will be able to do that is if I get off my blog now. Sooooooo BYE!
Deep Down Popular by Phoebe Stone is about a sixth grade girl named Jessie Lou Ferguson. Jessie Lou has to carry Conrad’s books home from school. Conrad is the most popular boy in school, and his leg is in a brace due to a leg problem that is never explained. Therefore he can’t ride the bus which is why Jessie Lou has to help him. Jessie Lou is very far from popular but will she become more popular while she helps Conrad, the popular boy?
I haven’t finished the book, but I am only 70 pages away! I think that Jessie Lou is going to continue to hang out with Conrad. I also believe that Conrad will make Jessie Lou fit in to the popular group as a repayment to her. I can’t wait to see what happens next!! I will make a new post when I am done with the 70 pages. Until then!

Once they recovered from a close escape Macey goes back to campaign and Cammie goes to school.

Cammie remembers seeing a symbol that was on one of the man’s finger but she can’t remember where see has seen it. Can Cammie, Macey and the rest of the gang figure out who attacked them on the roof, or will they be left with questions unanswered?
I love Ally Carter’s writing style. She writes her books with a passion that shows. I think that she has written perfect books for the perfect audience. Great job, Ally Carter! I thought that the book was very interesting and fun. The book kept me interested throughout the entire thing. I thought that it was so interesting because it was so suspenseful yet funny at many parts. Ally Carter did a great job with making the characters funny.
I would recommend this book because it has very nice, funny characters, It also keeps you interested throughout the entire book. Finally it makes you want to be in the shoes of the characters.

The Mysterious Benedict Society and The Prisoner’s Dilemma by Trenton Lee Stewart is a mystery/fiction book. The theme of remembering that the past doesn’t always have to be bad catches many readers eye. It caught my eye which is why I would recommend this book to anyone because it keeps you interested. It kept my keen attention throughout the entire book. Also, the characters made me laugh because of their sense of hummer in their actions.
The writing in the Mysterious Benedict Society and the Prisoner’s Dilemma was effective. It was effective because it got the point across without being so straight forward. Since it was a mystery the author would give clues and then “forget” about them for many pages. Some of the weaknesses of the book were when the action became very slow. What I mean by this is when the plot came to a halt and just seemed to stop. Although there were many other weaknesses, the strengths of the book such as keeping me interested over powers the faults by far.
The Mysterious Benedict Society and The Perilous Journy by Trenton Lee Stewart is a fantastic book. It is a fiction book but it has a lot of mystery in it. The Mysterious Benedict Society is summoned again by Mr. Benedict himself. This time he isn’t getting them together to go on a dangerous mission, but that is exactly how it turned out. Reynie, Kate, Sticky and Constance were going to go on a scavenger hunt that Mr. Benedict planned for them, but things quickly get twisted around. Mr. Benedict and his assistant, Number Two, got kidnapped while they were setting up the scavenger hunt for the society. The society was supposed to stay in the house while the adults and the police found Mr. Benedict and Number Two, but they left the safe secure house any way just to find and help their friends.
Trenton Lee Stewart addressed his purposes of the characters and of the novel perfectly. The book showed off the creative mind and skill behind every character. Trenton Lee Stewart was also trying to accomplish the task of getting the theme across. The theme was that everyone on a team is needed to complete he task at hand.
There some weaknesses of the book but the strengths definitely overcame the weaknesses. One of the weaknesses was when you could easily predict what was going to happen. One of the strengths was when the moments got so intense that you couldn’t put the book down and you just kept on reading and reading.
I would recommend this book to anyone because it is suspenseful but not scary. It also was very interesting which made me not be able to put it down. And it was finally very well written.
