I am currently in the middle of my reread for The Lost Hero and I am loving it so far! It definitely is giving me the same vibes as the Percy Jackson series and from what I remember its pretty much follows the same formula. Theres some sort of impending doom, there’s a quest and like a mini resolution leading to the next obstacle. I’m enjoying the new perspectives we’re getting in this series and how they differ from the original characters. Just the fact that we are moving away from the main three (aside from Jason and Percy) and showcasing a few of the children from the different gods is keeping me invested. Once again the pacing is consistent and fast, I have flew through the first half of the book! I think we are on the higher end of the middle-grade age range with this series but I will see whether or not it stays consistent as the books continue!
I have made the last minute decision to participate in the Backlist Readathon hosted by gabbyreads which started today and runs through to this Sunday 15th March! I have been slowly trying to get through all the physical books on my TBR over the last couple of months and I figured this readathon coincides perfectly with my goals. Now I have two books on my TBR that fit all of the prompts, but I am going to try my best to finish couple more of my backlist titles this week as well!
Backlist Readathon TBR:
The first book I would like to read is The Black Prism by Brent Weeks! This fits the prompts for read a backlist you added as a recommendation from someone else & read a book on your backlist that intimidates you the most!
The second book I would like to read this week is Girls of Storm and Shadow by Natasha Ngan! This books fits the prompts for read your shortest backlist title, read a backlist title you are most excited for, read a diverse backlist title (ex: lgbt rep, fat rep, poc, authors or characters with disabilities) & read a backlist with blue on the cover
Other books that fit the prompts that I could potentially complete are:
WWW WednesdayI am currently reading Fire by Kristin Cashore. I’m not too far into this yet but I’m enjoying it so far!
I just recently finished Morning Star by Pierce Brown and OMG it was amazing!!
I think I want to pick up Yes No Maybe So by Becky Albertalli and Aisha Saeed. It’s been getting some buzz recently, so I wanted to see what it was about!
I am on holidays at the moment and haven’t been doing a lot of reading while I have been away…. It’s been nice just taking a break and relaxing and not really worrying about what to pick up next. The only physical book I brought with me though is Fire by Kristin Cashore so I think I will definitely be picking this book up next. I loved Graceling when I read it a few years ago and I bought the two companion novels straight away but they have been sitting on my shelves gathering dust ever since. I have heard nothing but great things about the other two book and by bringing Fire with me I almost guarantee I will be completing it within the next few days!
