My 9yo has decided to read the book! Yay! She‘s one chapter in and loving it!

However, it was not my reading it that convinced her to read it. It was my idea to draw pictures for books that had none that convinced her (she prefers comic type chapter books and she LOVES to draw and has been running out of ideas). She was immediately excited about it!

Stay tuned for some bookish fan art! 😁

LibrarianRyan Cool idea! Just FYI in case you didn't know, there is an illustrated edition of this book and I think they just completed the graphic novel series to match. 1w
QuoteQueen @LibrarianRyan I knew there was an illustrated version, but had no idea there was a graphic novel series. I‘ll have to look into that! Thanks! 1w
LibrarianRyan @QuoteQueen yeah. They took a few years off between the last book or two, but I think they finally finished the series. 1w

4/5💚s

I read the book to try to encourage my 9yo to read it too (it‘s her book). I ended up really liking it! I‘m a huge fan of Greek myth and fictional retellings so this was right up my alley. The characters were fun and sarcastic for 12yos which I really appreciate (pretty sure my 9yo and Annabeth have much in common lol). Now I‘m tempted to read more of the series. It‘s was an easy read for me and probably for middle graders as well.

I really enjoyed this! It was a fun and entertaining read, I can see why kids love this series. I‘ll definitely be reading the others soon.

And this fulfills my last prompt for the #MGME portion of #BBRC (cover change mid-series). I‘ll be updating my google form tomorrow, on to #teenangst!

I‘m only a few chapters in, but I can already see why this is an enduring, hugely popular series! I feel like I‘m the only person who hasn‘t read it. 😂 I may just lay around and read it the rest of the afternoon!

MatchlessMarie I haven't read it either but I want to because of the Broadway Cast Recording. This is very on brand for me lol 2w
4thhouseontheleft @MatchlessMarie The full cast album is definitely on my list of things to listen to when I finish the book! 2w
Kaila-ann I haven‘t read it either 😳 2w
Scochrane26 I listened to books 2-5 & the heroes of Olympus series on audio but not a cast recording. They were entertaining on several long car trips. I think they‘re great for boys and girls (& us adults). They have some good female leads. 2w

I read this before and was so-so on it. The writing is not sophisticated, and Percy‘s ADHD behavior bugged the hell out of me. But now I have a first-grader who‘s diagnosed ADHD...lots more sympathy for Percy. I am reading this aloud with my kid at bedtime, and he‘s loving it. The writing is actually perfect for a kids‘ book. (It‘s not for every first-grader, more of a middle-grade book, but my kid is pretty advanced.)

My daughter got this for Easter, tried to read it then got bored maybe? Idk. She loves Greek myths, so I‘m hoping if I read it first and talk it up a bit she might give it an honest shot. We shall see!

Finally read this and I found it to be entertaining. I watched the movie so I kept going back to that. I thought the changes made in the movie made sense for that medium, but I did enjoy seeing more characters in the book.

This was such a fun adventure book. I highly enjoyed the action and characters. I loved the modern take of the Greek mythology as well. Can't wait to read more of Percy Jackson in the future. 4 out of 5.

I've been reading this book to my boys for the past few weeks. We read a chapter (two if they're short) a night, before bed. I've never read this series before, but my husband bought me them all, knowing I've wanted to read them for YEARS.

So this will be for the "On your TBR the longest" slot on my 2019 #ReadingChallenge.

My boys are really enjoying it too. They look forward to listening to it every night. Which brings me SO much joy.

[#BookReview] Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan. It‘s been so long since I read this series that I remember almost nothing! So re-reading it seemed like a fun idea and so far it has been! I really enjoyed this re-read and it makes me excited to continue the series and finally branch out to the spin offs. 📖🌊🧜🏼‍♂️

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ if you enjoy middle grade that is made to entertain all ages and you‘ve been putting off the Percy Jackson books, you must put whatever you are reading aside and start them! They are really fun and entertaining. I love the mix of Greek mythology mixed with the modern world. Quick read! #percyjackson

Alright so I got smart and decided to jump into Percy Jackson and oh I loved this way more than the Apollo Trials. The writing tone is completely different from this series to the latest series. This has a much more mature feel to it with no cringy jokes which I appreciate so much. The monsters were great, the story pacing perfect. I can‘t wait to read the rest of it. I did cry at one point and I appreciate a book that can make me cry.

Simplykellyk All of them are so so good! ❤️ 5mo
Sweetkokoro @Simplykellyk I‘m all over the place with This entire series (started with the Apollo Trials cuz I‘m a fool haha) and I have to say so far This series is the best one. I still have loads to read though. 5mo
Simplykellyk I haven‘t read the Apollo series. But I have read Percy and then the heroes of Olympus series. Percy is by far the best 5mo

Sweetkokoro @Simplykellyk I have a feeling I‘m gonna like Percy a ton. The writing tones are just so different from Percy to Apollo, Percy feels more geared towards teens while Apollo feels geared towards 10yr olds. 5mo

I‘ve seen the movie before, but never read the book, so I thought I‘d give the audiobook a shot. It was a fun quick read, and a cool way to spin Greek mythology into a new story. While I enjoyed it, I‘m not sure I‘ll continue with the rest of the series. It was fun, but I‘m definitely much older than its intended audience, lol.

TheBookKeepers I felt the same! But my 10 yo son freaking devours all his books! I always recommend it to younger readers 6mo
Annl I am reading the series bc it was recommended by one of my tutoring students. It is an easy read for these last couple of weeks of school. 6mo

Filling in my gaps in children's literature with the introduction to the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series. I appreciate the world-building and the incorporation of Greek mythology into the present, as well as the sense of humor (the Chimera's dog tag and the Echidna cursing Australia made me laugh out loud). However, I just wanted more from it. Perhaps it's been too long since I read middle-grade books and my perception is off.

This is definitely above his reading level, but he LOVED it!! And finished it quicker than I anticipated! Did you know that research has shown that kids CAN read above their reading level & have full comprehension if the material is of high interest to them?
#raisingreaders

BookwormM Just out of interest how do you improve a child‘s reading level if they don‘t read above it? 10mo
TheBookKeepers Find a book at or even just below their reading level, and have them read lots of them. The concept is high quantity of books with high success of comprehension. This builds love of reading & confidence. It keeps them from getting frustrated and the more they read the more they improve. Then sprinkle in books of high interest when they get excited about a topic or book that just excites them @BookwormM 10mo
TheBookKeepers Many kids (especially audio learners) can also comprehend books above their reading level when being read to! So I supplement with audiobooks & read aloud a that I do with my son. And if ur little one struggles with tracking, listening to audio while following along in print can help overcome that struggle. @BookwormM ❤️ 10mo
