The Blood Of Olympus: The Heroes Of Olympus by Rick Riordan


Yes. I have finally made it. When receiving the book last year on the day that it was published, I was very excited, not only because it had more about my favourite demigods, but also it was signed by the author himself. But then I thought, do I really want to finish what I started so many years ago? The book universe which literally made me the person I am today - writing to you. That is why it took over a year to gain the courage to tell myself that it is ok to move on. To not be stuck in the past. Cherish the moments that you have now, and see how much of a person you have become in these last few years.

So, with my heart in my throat, I have decided to record and review the last Percy Jackson story that we will ever know there to be (except of course for the books which talk about Greek God's and Heroes). Right, just gathering my thoughts to tell you the final chapter. I guess you never know how difficult it is to give up your favourite characters, until the very end, where there is nothing left.

Even though this was meant to be the final book in the series, it didn't leave without a big story, in more ways than one. Including as to how, the plot line was huge, but also the number of pages that consist within the book.

I must admit, I wasn't crazily amazed by this book. I found it quite dull. Boring. To be honest, I can't believe that I am actually saying this, let alone admitting it. From being one of the biggest Percy Jackson fans, to slating one of it's final books, feels quite wrong. Although, I am glad about what ending Leo got in the end, it seemed like he always got the short end of the stick. He seemed like the under dog compared to everyone else, not as valued. Even though he may have put the most effort into the deadly quest in so many various ways.

Besides, even if I wasn't a huge fan of the book, the book cover is literally incredible. I love the colours, it seems like the perfect contrast between the antagonist and the protagonists. When first seeing as to what it looked like in a cover reveal, I thought this is truly a beauty, one of the most beautiful covers I've seen, let alone read in my life.

Overall Rating: **

The Gods have spoken! - Mythos by Stephen Fry

I love mythology. That is a fact that many people know in my life. So when I found out that the brilliant mind of Stephen Fry was going to write a book on Greek mythology, I couldn't have been more ecstatic. In three words: perfect bedtime stories.

Did it excel my expectations?

Well, I guess that you could say yeah.

I understand that some people did not like the way that it was written in such simple 'Fry way'. But I found that much more funny.

You see, I find that there is nothing better than drama. In fact, as social beings we all have a certain feel about it. It is something that breathes life within all of us.


You see, you can feel the absolute significance of why a book like this should be read. It brings us back to a time where stories of such marvellous wonders exist. That there is hope out there. That there is a reason why certain events happen as they do.

A reason. That is all we need to keep going on.

So, as I began reading Mythos, it took me back to a time when …

Here We Are Now by Jasmine Warga

When I look at 'Here we are now' I think of a fair few things. First of all, there is not many father/daughter relationship type YA books on the market at the moment. Secondly, I thought that it would be interesting to see how such a relationship between father and daughter, with the added stress of the Dad being famous adds to the hype of this type of story.

However, when delving into the book itself, it felt as though it was more about the relationship between her father and mother, rather than the main protagonist herself. In fact, it seemed as though the main character was pushed to the side so much, due to the flashbacks, that it felt as though she was a weak supporting character. To this day, it feels as though I haven't really understood what Taliah (the supposed main character) was all about and her mind processes, that we usually see with other beloved characters.

Throughout the book I had found that for the plot itself, I felt as though it was far too short for a…

Cover Reveal: Miranda's Rights by Lily Luchesi

So merry Christmas to all! With only Christmas Day finally on the horizon! I hope you all remember Lily Luchesi from earlier this year! Where I did a cover reveal and review. You would be glad to know now, that once again I have the priveledge to reveal the cover of the sequel to Stake Out and will be able to review in the new year!


Miranda’s Rights (Paranormal Detectives Book Two) by Lily Luchesi


The dead don’t always rest easy... Retired detective Danny Mancini is haunted by nightmares after he found out that paranormal creatures exist. All he wants is to forget them…especially a certain half-vampire. When cursed werewolves show up trying to kill him, he is forced to go back to the Paranormal Investigative Division for help against a powerful old enemy. What he was not expecting was a dead ex showing back up after twenty-six years.
My own view of the book itself is refreshing. Not only is it a sequel book to the story, Stake-out, but also that by the look of the cover this is definitely…
