Percy Jackson and the Olympians: A Collective Review

Believe it or not, I had never read the Percy Jackson series before. Actually, I had never read any of Rick Riordan’s books! I know, it’s an actual freaking shame. Because these books are AHHHHHHHHHHHmazing. The Lightning Thief was a lot of fun, however, I had seen the movie. And the movie is so much like the book that it was more of a refresher. Obviously there were elements that […]

That’s why I really enjoyed this book. It was interesting and detailed and full of incredible stories from the Second World War. I hadn’t really studied much on Patton as a person, and I like to think that I learned […]

Believe it or not, I have never read a J.R.R. Tolkien book. *gasp* I know. It’s quite unfortunate. But I fully intend to change that this year. Sadly, I think my library had the wrong audiobook available. It was the BBC Radio Dramatization made in like the 60’s, so it didn’t really include much except dialogue and sound effects. It was lacking, I’m sure, the actual book portions…if that makes […]
