Here's some of my #DNFBooks for this year. Some of them I plan on giving another chance.

#ReadingResolutions @Jess7

ravenlee I finished Pillars of the Earth, and I. Hated. It. I do love Siddhartha, but it‘s one you have to be in the right mood for. 9mo
MirrorMask @ravenlee Kudos for finishing Pillars of Earth, it's way too long for me to attempt to finish something I don't enjoy. 9mo
Burghbookaddict I finished Where'd You Go Bernadette but I hated everything about it. It's probably one of the stupidest books I've ever read. 9mo
See All 8 Comments
RamsFan1963 I can see why you didn't finish Accelerando by Stross. It is IMHO his weakest novel and his hardest to get into character-wise. 9mo
MirrorMask @BurghBookAddict I got far enough, that I might as well have finished but I hated everything about it. 9mo
MirrorMask @RamsFan1963 Do you have any suggestions for a Stross book I should read? 9mo
RamsFan1963 Singularity Sky and Iron Sunrise are my personal favorites. Halting State and Saturn's Children were also very good. If you'd like something more fantasy bent, his Laundry Files series, starting with The Nightmare Stacks, is a lot of fun. It deals with a secret British govt agency who fights Lovecraftian horrors. 9mo

"...The thing about fate, Magnus: even if we can't change the big picture, our choices can alter the details. That's how we rebel against destiny, how we make our mark. What will you choose to do?"
Dang, Loki. Eloquence despite the punishment. Smooth...

I really enjoyed this book. Only problem I had was I felt like the characters were being sent on too many errands. Like a video game with too many side quests. I all I wanted was the characters to complete the main quest line.

This must be the summer of Riordan for me because it's the third book of his that I've read since the end of April. This was a reread for me and I think I loved it even more than the first time around.

“My name is Magnus Chase. I‘m sixteen years old. This is the story of how my life went downhill after I got myself killed.”

It‘s finally spring, but the weather is acting like it‘s still winter. So this is the perfect time to curl up with a fun book. Such a promising start.

Book was good! I forgot how funny Riordan is; I laughed out loud several times.

The narrator was terrible; like he was doing a parody of someone reading to children. As my kids say: cringe.

Basically Riordan is like a modern Homer, right? Retelling the great stories of folks interacting with the gods in a way that people enjoy? You get where I‘m going w/ this.

My fave thing abt these books is how Riordan realized how normative heroic YA typically is. It started around the last PJATO book & got progressively socially aware from there. Check out the nod to class, disability, gender (&more) in this series!

omalora Gah I want to read that so bad but I have so many books to go through first 1y

Well, I was done Christmas shopping. Then the Magnus Chase hardcover box set was only $13.62 on Amazon, so I had to order it for my boy. Yeah. For him. I just have to preview it first.

My take on the pride flag made of books *hides because it's awful* ?️‍? I made it the "new" one with the added brown and black stripes because that's an amazing idea.
I'm very glad we got to end pride month with Germany finally legalizing gay marriage, which was definitely loooooong overdue.
So happy last day of #pridemonth! And let's make it a lifetime of respect and love ?️‍?

Hi guys☺️ pretty new to this whole thing, I don't even have a bookstagram but let's do this!!

Was feeling pretty nostalgic so I picked up this one and I remember why I loved the Percy Jackson series so much when I was a kid😍 humor is spot on and the characters are so diverse (and not just with mythical creatures either). Can't wait to finish it🙌🏼

This is my Rick Riordan shelf (which holds part of my collection--look at those worn Percy Jackson spines). He's a local author here in Boston! Boston is featured in the Magnus Chase series and I love recognizing all the landmarks he tosses in there.

We have a number of amazing authors in and around San Antonio, David Liss, Paulette Jiles to name a couple. But seeing as my son has devoured all of Rick Riordan's books, he's my pick for #localauthor. To be fair, my husband has read all of Liss's books and Jiles book is high on my tbr list. #aprilbookshowers

I'm catching up with my 9 yr old, who is on book two of this series. It's fun and engaging, and I was more than a little amused to find that the lead character's resemblance to Kurt Cobain on the book's cover is intentional.

readinginthedark Really? 'Cause I totally thought that when I saw the cover! 😆 2y

HollyMcMiller I loved this book! If he likes it there's a second book called Magnus Chase and The Hammer of Thor. There is also The Apollo Series by Rick Riordan too. He writes great books for kids that Adult Kids like to read too! :) 2y

Definitely proof that Riordan refuses to lessen in quality. Great take on Norse mythology separating itself from mainstream marvel interpretations.

I really enjoyed this book. I'm glad that Rick is starting to step away from Percy. (Poor boy needs to be left alone for awhile) I definitely would recommend Magnus Chase. I love this new character and can't wait for the next installment.

I am a huge fan of Rick Riordan! I thoroughly enjoyed the first book in this new series, which is based on the Norse Gods. I didn't plow through it as quickly as I did Percy, but once I got in to it it moved quickly. If you're a fan of Riordan's writing, you're sure to enjoy Magnus & his friends!

This is not Ricks best book or story by any means. The characters weren't as strong as in previous books or a lovable. I still enjoyed the book. However, I am hoping the second book is stronger all way around.

I only made it to page 180 before calling it quits. The tone of the narrator's voice was much too "dude-bro" for me to handle it very long. While I enjoyed the choice for Magnus' divine father, in a sense, it still wasn't enough for me to keep reading. Maybe the sequel will be better.

"Myths are simply stories about truths we've forgotten." Not his strongest work but I've never met a Rick Riordan book I didn't like.

Classic Riordan. Make sure you don't skip the chapter titles!

kdwinchester I adore Rick Riordan. When I got my puppy last fall, reading this book kept me sane. I am not sure what that says about my mental state. 😳😅 3y
kgriffith @Kdwinchester Ha! Over the years I've come to accept that Riordan has a very specific style present in all of these series, and as long as I don't expect something different, I'll always enjoy his books. I've been sitting on this one since Christmas! 3y

This was my first time reading Rick Riordan, and I can see why he is so popular. To be honest I didn't love Magnus, but some of the other characters were pretty fun, and I really enjoyed the way the Norse mythology was woven through the story.

Like PJO, the characters were funny and endearing. I liked all the references to PJO and the way Rick Riordan weaved the Norse mythology with his own story. The only thing I didn't appreciate was Magnus Chase sounding so much like Percy Jackson. My 12 year old self would have loved this, though.
