Book Tag

The Percy Jackson / Heroes Of Olympus Book Tag

Hello to the void!

I don’t know if you heard but it’s been announced that Disney+ will be adapting the PJO series into a 5 season series. When I got the news I didn’t know whether to cry, laugh, scream or dance . . . . So I did all of them and more. I revived my campaign to get Disney+ (and addition purchases because Disney+ isn’t available in Jamaica on it’s own) and it worked!

When I saw that May from Forever and Everly was creating a PJO book tag, I jumped at the opportunity to be a part of it and here we are. So thank you so much to May for creating this amazing book tag (and cute graphics) and another thank you for tagging me. Here we go:

Rules:

  1. Thank the person who tagged you and link to their post.
  2. Link to the original creator: May @ Forever and Everly! Please note that she made the artwork/graphics, if using them. *If you care about graphics having a clear quality, make it big enough so that the dimensions are 1103 x 175!
  3. Match books with the given prompts.
  4. Tag however many people as wanted!
  5. Copy-paste the rules and list of prompts.

The Questions:

I’m going to ignore my re-reads for this question. But it’s still incredibly hard to choose a book, I’ve read five books, FIVE BOOKS, that I rated high five stars so this is really hard. Okay, I think I’m going to go with Far From The Tree because it deals with a topic that I’v wondered about before but never seen any one address and I think it was beautifully done.

I might seem fully dunce to any one in the void reading this but I’m going to choose The Gentleman Thief by Kate Gragg. I was in “awe” of the way the author combined what I could only describe as middle grade humour with a uh -not – middle grade story without the book coming off as childish. So that is my answer.

I don’t know if this is actually under-hyped or if it’s just that I’m not seeing the hype but Salt & Storm is a really great book in my opinion. It has a pretty interesting plot with really high stakes, forbidden romance (sometimes) and magic. So there you have it.

The Masterpiece by Chiemeka Nicely. I almost DNFed this one but I pushed through. In the end it was a pretty okay read, I gave it two stars and I would most likely continue the series if I got my hand on the other books

Other than the books that inspired this tag? I’m going to go cheat and choose two series (series needs a new word for it’s plural). I always feel at home with any of the books in these two series (ugh) because I used to read the books before I actually read and they are really easy to just pick up for a quick read. The Nancy Drew books by Carolyn Keene and The Dork Diaries by Rachel Renee Russel.

I loved seeing (reading?) the sibling relationship between Starr and her brother’s in The Hate U Give. It just felt so real and it added a breath of fresh air in the midst of the unfortunate circumstances that took place in this book

I loved Girl, Serpent, Thorn. The only reason I didn’t finish it in one sitting is because every single teacher decided to start giving tests when I got approved for this arc but anyway. I really loved this story, I think one of my favourite parts of the book was the fact the MC was morally grey. Many of her actions were done for selfish reasons but there were a lot of things that she did for the good of others. Plus there was a great f/f romance.

Wicked Fox was definitely an amazing read for me. I think one thing that made it even more amazing — besides the fact that it was a beautiful story with wonderful characters — was the fact that bookstores in Jamaica got the book the week of the release I think and that rarely happens. So I bought it and read before the hype started (or before I noticed the hype , incase I was living under a rock) and the hype is definitely well deserved.

So I’m not going to pass up any more chances to mention a book from the PJO series. I think out of the five books I would prefer to have The Last Olympian with me on an island because it wraps every thing up nicely and (let’s face it this is the real reason) Percabeth finally happens.

I’ve enjoyed all the thrillers I’ve read so far and I’m hoping this one won’t be any different. The synopsis of One Of Us Is Lying seems really interesting, and people I follow and trust seemed to really like it and it’s sequel so.

My Sister, The Serial Killer is already out and I’ve already ordered it but things take a while to ship to Jamaica and Book Depository seems to take even longer. But I’m highly anticipating this book and I’m pretty sure it will be the first book from the box that I read.

The Lightning Thief has to be mentioned. If I hadn’t read this book I wouldn’t be the reader I was today. This book was recommended to me by one of my best friends and when I say recommended I mean she was *lovingly* ranting about it and I ha don clue what she was talking about and then she told me read it to see if I agreed with her.

The Hunger Games was recommended to by my other best friend a couple days after I finished the HOO ( so like a week or so after I finished PJO) when she asked if I was team Peeta or Gale and I had no idea what she was talking about, so she told me to read the books and get back to her (Team Peeta, obviously)

I’m sure this isn’t the funniest book I’ve read but it is the most recent book that made me laugh out loud at least once every chapter. Anne from Anne Of Green Gables was hilarious despite the fact that she wasn’t trying to be. I couldn’t help but laugh at her personality, imagination and thoughts played out and impacted the story.

I read Cloudy With A Chance Of Boys in 2016 and I loved it. I still love it, it’s just a cute funny story about sisterly love and crushes . . . . it’s just cute. That’s all I have to say.

I was afraid to continue reading The Death Cure after we found out that my favourite characters wasn’t immune.

I really like the entire Divergent series which doesn’t seem to be a common thing. But I don’t think I will ever forgive Veronica Roth for killing -redacted- instead of Caleb.

The only book I can think of at the moment is Black Leopard Red Wolf. I did not like this book. It had an interesting concept and I could appreciate the story but the delivery was not for me.

While Percabeth is unmatched I wanted to choose another book for this prompt. I know I already chose Anne of Green Gables earlier but the slow burn rivals to friends to lovers between Anne and Gilbert was *Chef’s Kiss*.

So there we have it. If your interested in this tag go ahead and do it. Be sure to tag me and May, the creator of this tag so we can see your answers.

That’s All I Got, Danielle.
