New Year, New Obsession

Last year my book obsession was the Harry Potter series and the Twilight saga. This year Sunny has gotten me on a Percy Jackson & the Olympians kick, and am I glad she did! They're probably one of the best series I have ever read... no joke! Right now I am just starting the second book, The Titan's Curse. Basically, the series is about a 6th-grade boy (Percy Jackson) who thought he was simply abnormal his entire life. He then goes to a school called Yancy Academy and has a very strange experience. From there, everything changes. Percy goes to a camp for kids that are "abnormal" just like him. But, really Percy Jackson isn't abnormal, he's a demigod (his father was a god and his mother was a mortal) and the camp he goes to is especially for demigods. When Sunny went to the movies this weekend, she saw a trailer for the movie-version of the first book, The Lightning Thief. I hope its as good as the book!!!
I didn't have much else to post about so I'm sorry if I bored you with my ramblings! More posts soon! :)

  2. Darn, more books I have to read!


  3. Ditto to Haley, but that sounds really good! As soon as you mentioned "Lighting Theif" I was like OH! Because I remember last summer my friend wanted me to read that, but I forgot the name :P Sounds good, I need a good series right now. Some of my favorite books are ones that I heard of on blogs.
