JANUARY Book Haul: Books

Here it is! The JANUARY book haul (it is called that now lol)! I am here with all these 12 books:

january-book-haul

Riverkeep, Martin Stewart; The Selection, Kiera Cass; The Elite, Kiera Cass; The One, Kiera Cass; The Guard, Kiera Cass; The Prince, Kiera Cass; Son of Neptune, Rick Riordan; Mark of Athena, Rick Riordan; The Invaders, John Flanagan; The Hunters, John Flanagan; Anne of Green Gables, L. M. Montgomery;; Ms. Marvel, G. Willow Wilson.

The first book I am going to review is Riverkeep, by Martin Stewart:

Synopsis: Wulliam is the son of the Riverkeep; Keeper of the untamed Danek River. His father’s job is to keep weeds in check, light lanterns to keep the ice from melting and retrieve dead bodies from the water. But his father falls into the Danek’s cold depths, only to come out as if a new person. Wulliam realizes that he had been possessed. And it is now Wulliam’s job to keep the river in check, and find a cure for his father. But he must kill a mystical beast to find the cure… How will Wulliam handle that?

Review: “I liked it! It wasn’t my favorite but there were some pretty funny lines, and exceptional lines that were pretty poetic. Then ending wasn’t satisfying but it was a good read!”

Rating:star_png1597star_png1597star_png1597star_png1597star_png1597star_png1597/star_png1597star_png1597star_png1597star_png1597 (6/10)

Next is The Selection/The Elite/The One/The Prince/The Guard, by Kiera Cass:

Synopsis: America is a Five. The 3rd lowest rank in the Caste. She had received a letter to be put in the Selection: A “competition” to win over to Prince’s heart… Against 34 other girls. Unwillingly she puts her name in and her life changes forever. She now wears the finest dresses and eats the best food, but will she win over Prince Maxon’s heart? Or does she even want to? It is up to America to decide who she loves most: Maxon or Aspen?

Review: “I thoroughly enjoyed the three books. I liked the next one better than the one before and it kept me on edge the entire time. Though there were a lot of hints that The Hunger Games inspired her, but I loved it. One of my favorite reads.”

Next up: The Brotherband Chronicles Book 2-3, by John Flanagan:

Synopsis: Hal and the Heron Crew are searching for the Raven and it’s pirate inhabitants. They venture to retrieve what was stolen from them: the Andomal.

Review: “I really enjoyed it! Can’t wait to read the next book, because GILAN is in it… EHHEHEHUEHUE!”

Rating: star_png1597star_png1597star_png1597star_png1597star_png1597star_png1597star_png1597star_png1597star_png1597star_png1597 (10/10)

Now it is time for Son of Neptune/Mark of Athena, by Rick Riordan:

Synopsis: Percy Jackson’s story continues… Read my reviews!

Review: Son Of Neptune Mark Of Athena

Rating: star_png1597star_png1597star_png1597star_png1597star_png1597star_png1597star_png1597/star_png1597star_png1597star_png1597 (7/10)

AHHH! Anne of Green Gables, by L. M. Montgomery:

Synopsis: Anne Shirley, a young orphan is mistakingly adopted by two siblings, Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert. She faces all the mishaps and adventures that she creates with her quick tongue and fiery personality.

Review: “I loved the movies, so what the heck! Let’s read the book! I loved it so much! I see a little of the girls in my family in Anne Shirley. If you read you’ll never forget Ann with an ‘e’.”

Here we are with:

And Finally, Ms. Marvel, by G. Willow Wilson:

Synopsis: Kamala Khan is just a normal teenage Muslim from Jersey City, right? Wrong. She is actually a superhero known as Ms. Marvel, with the ability to shift her body to stretch, grow, shrink and morph into someone else. But what happens when Kamala gets grounded from going out besides going to school? Do you think that will stop the head-strong Kamala? Nope. It never will.

Review: It was my type of humor. The drawings described the scene well, and I loved the use of comedy and live that was breathed into it. I totally recommend it to Marvel (or DC) fans. (I am a DC fan but I enjoy Marvel’s content a lot).

Rating: star_png1597star_png1597star_png1597star_png1597star_png1597star_png1597star_png1597star_png1597/star_png1597star_png1597 (7/10)

Hope you all enjoyed this! BYE!

Mark of Athena | Book Review/Rant #5

I borrowed the book from the library and I had already read it recently but I (again) fell in love with the characters. Why RICK?

Anyways I wrote a list of things that I love about the Mark Of Athena. Here they are:

  • I love how Annabeth and Percy’s relationship is unbreakable.
  • I love how Jason and Percy have the greatest bromance in the history of bromance.
  • I love how Leo teases everyone, but is hiding his deep, dark sadness inside.
  • How Hazel & Leo have a deep connection
  • How Ella, Tyson and Mrs. O’Leary are the greatest trio.
  • How Intuitive Annabeth is.
  • How Annabeth and Piper steal each others food.
  • How Hazel doesn’t know what a chicken nugget is.
  • How Buford the Table has a secret crush on the engine.
  • How Hazel fanned her face and couldn’t meet Percy’s eyes when he and Annabeth fell asleep in the stables.
  • How Leo screams as Frank the Friendly Eagle flies him to the Argo II but crashes them instead.
  • How Sammy stole Hazel’s heart.
  • How Mermaids hiss and it turns out to be laughing.
  • When Percy pretends that Mr. D is on board the Argo II.
  • When the girls pretend to go crazy.
  • When Frank turns into a Dolphin.
  • When Annabeth wants to punch the Mark of Athena in the face.
  • How Leo is the McShizzle and Bad Boy Supreme.
  • How Leo wished he wasn’t so good.
  • How Frank hates “Leo’s World”.

I love all these things about the Mark of Athena.

That’s all I guess.

Oh, wait!

7/10 stars.

And remember guys: It is never too late to write “Team Leo” on your shirt, no matter what circumstance.

Peace out!

The Son of Neptune | Book Review/Rant #4

Okay, Rick. Please don’t keep doing this to us. YOU MAKE ME UNABLE TO PUT BOOKS DOWN! GRRR!

You keep doing this to me! I don’t care how many times I will read the books, and I’ll KEEP reading them.

FYI! I read this book years ago and I don’t remember the Iris Vegan Shop thingy. lol

 

I forget how much I like Frank. He is wicked awesome! lol. I also have read the Lightning Thief again and I can see how little Percy has changed. Maybe he is a LITTLE bit more mature, but lol. Same ole Persasseus.

 

I rate it:

7/10

Trials of Apollo, Rick Riordan: Short Book Review/Rant #3 with NO SPOILERS

     This is my NON-SPOILER REVIEW! I loved it. SO MUCH!

     The development of the characters are fantastic (As usual), and I read until 10:30pm so I could finish it. (Got it at 5:30, was gone at 6pm – 7:30pm. So about 3:30 hours of reading. Dang)

     I enjoyed every part of it and I can’t wait to read more! WHY MUST I WAIT UNTIL MAY 2nd???? WHY DID YOU DO THIS TO US? Now I know how readers will feel when I come out with books. 😄

      Meg and Apollo seem to be a good team and I enjoyed the ups and downs of the friendship. The Story was a good speed, and I loved it.

       “Riordan mixes Greek Myths, Modern times, Humor and Poetry together very well. And then bakes it into a delicious Trials of Apollo Cake! The Plot was very tasty!” ~My review 😄 so weird, I know. But here is another one I will make.

The Book was so good,
I wish there was more right now,
Love it, Rick, My man!

😄 The review is in a haiku! lol

Definitely 9/10 stars!

Trials of Apollo, Rick Riordan: Book Review/Rant #2 (Contains Spoilers)

     So a few days ago I got the Trials of Apollo, Book One, at 5:30pm. I read 5 chapters then I had to go at 6pm and I returned at 7:30p. And since I got back (and did some chores) I read the book. And finished it… at 10:30pm. Curse my fast reading!

     Is it just me or are books NEVER long enough? Especially the good ones. And it definitely feels good to read a book I have NEVER read before. I always have to reread books and stuff, but FINALLY!

     So this review contains spoilers (I am posting a NON-SPOILER edition soon), and if you haven’t read it yet DON’T READ AHEAD! I know some people like to be spoiled (*cough cough* Sometimes that is me *cough cough*) but I warned you! :3

     So…. Haikus? L. O. L. Rick Riordan had this thought out, spectacularly! His writing style was slightly altered and made to sound like how Apollo would say/write it. So many crazy descriptions from the very start. 

     So, I’ve gotta say: Out of all the Greek gods, Apollo is my favorite. I know he can be egotistical and a snot sometimes but I think he is cool! 😄 No wait. I quote from PJO, Book Three: “I am so Awesome” was the last line of his Haiku. So that kinda proves the egotistical part.

     Rick did a few things different than I though he would. I was hoping Apollo would take on the alias Lester and pretend to be a demigod and be secretive, but now that I have read it, Apollo would have NEVER done that. 

     Once again, Rick has OUT DONE EVERYTHING POSSIBLE! He has made fantastic characters and made yet ANOTHER baddie! I NEVER really would have thought of Nero until they mentioned the Emperors of Rome. Then I thought of the BIGGEST, BADDEST OF ALL! Nero. I never imagined Nero to look like that. I always thought in my mind he looked like this:

hqdefault (1).jpg

     Stupid Story Keepers 😄

     And another thing about Rick Riordan is that every time I read one of his books, I learn something new about writing. I see a sentence and I am like, “That is acceptable? I will keep that in mind”. So he teaches me WHILE i read his awesomeness!

     And the part that made me fangirl. I will say one word:

     Leo.

     THE MCSHIZZLE IS BACK! Mr. Valdez the flaming BAD BOY SUPREME! (FYI, to make this all clear, I AM NOT SOO OBSESSED WITH THE CHARACTER THAT I MADE A SANDWICH CALLED THE BAD BOY SUPREME… Okay maybe I did, but that is not important. PEANUT BUTTER, HONEY, BANANAAAA!

     Leo Valdez is my favorite character. In almost EVERY fandom, I have my fictional crush, but LEO BEATS DEM ALL! Horace/Gilan from Rangers Apprentice (I can’t choose), Sokka from Avatar: The Last Airbender, Nova from Ultimate Spiderman, FLASH, KIDFLASH! And Suni if you are reading this… Don’t bring any of those things you always mention to me up! jk. Do it if you want. I AM STRONG NOW THAT LEO IS BACK! Team Leo FTW!

     And Calypso is there. She is actually a good ship to Leo. I know that I can’t have him cuz he ain’t real, but Caleo is really good. Calypso is adorable! She is sassy, strong-willed and kind of reminds me of my lil sister. In someways. Especially that she (MAJOR SPOILER: Wore a Pink Snow Jacket SPOILER END) Okay that spoiler was not a major spoiler I lied, XD.

     And thanks, Rick! You bring these Greek Myths to life in a very good manner. I love your writing style!

Here is my review:

The Book was so good,
I wish there was more right now,
Love it, Rick, My man!

I rate it 9/10 stars!

That’s all for now,

The Lost Hero | Book Review #1

Oh, Rick… Why must you do this to me? I CAN’T GET ENOUGH OF PERCY JACKSON!

Hey guys! It’s Aggie, and today I want to tell you a little story before I go into the book review of Percy Jackson.

When the Percy Jackson Movie came out, my parents rented it and we watched it as a family. I didn’t know who Percy Jackson was, but I thought the movie was pretty cool (I was young XD).

Then later that year, we were cast into a play where we saw so many people reading the Percy Jackson books, saying it was good! But I didn’t see the connection with the movie (I was young).

While in the play I was in 5th grade, I had to read a book about Greek Myths… Boy, I LOVED that book. I read the myths over and over and OVER again. It was so interesting. I even made a poll of WHO IS YOUR FAVORITE GOD/GODDESS! and I got cut down by some guy who thought he was awesome on how to pronounce the names. I don’t care if I still pronounce them wrong. It is just a trait I have.

But in 2011 or 2012 my friend, Josh (let’s call him that) came over to our house and I was trying to force him to read the Hunger Games, whilst he was trying to force me into reading Percy Jackson. He said it was connected to the movie and stuff, and I was thinking back at it and remembering how STUPID it was (I just didn’t want to give in easily).

Finally we agreed to swap books. After a couple of months, I remember going to the Book Store and couldn’t find a good book to read. I then saw Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief. That moment changed EVERYTHING!

I swear I couldn’t put the book down. So thanks Josh! You are AWESOME!

So here we are at the SECOND series. The Heroes of Olympus. I already finished the series in 2015 and it was epic. But I decided to read “The Lost Hero” after not reading it for around 2 years.

It was awesome! I finished it (yet again) in about 2 or 3 days. I love that series.

My favorite character: Leo Valdez, bad boy supreme! 😄 TEAM LEO FTW!

Least Favorite Character: Dylan? Is that his name? Hate him.

Review:

“A good introduction to the new series, introducing new characters, and bringing back old. Rick is back with his witty words, interesting plot line, and his skill at hooking you! A recommendation to fans of mythology and nonstop action!” ~MOI!

Lol. Hope you liked this post! If I get a few more likes I will consider re-buying “The Son of Neptune”. We gave it away after I finished it. I really don’t remember much about it. Then it was my least favorite of the series. AND I am considering buying the missing books from the first series (I am missing The Lightning Thief and The Titan’s Curse).

See ya later, peeps! ❤

~AGGIE KOPP (A. F. KOPP) A part of TEAM LEO!
