There‘s a lot of interesting information in this book about Black soldiers during WWI. It‘s meticulously researched, especially for a fictional text.

This was a fun book, especially if you're into #greekmythology. I haven't met a Rick Riordan book I didn't enjoy even though I'm not the target audience of most of his work. #mythology #apollo #greekgods #YAlit

I adored this wild, unexpected mashup of Greek mythology and love stories during wartime! The premise put me off for a while, because how could you possibly make that combo work?!, but Julie Berry pulled it off. In spades! This one is going to linger with me for a long, long time. 🎶

Happy Saturday!

Another book I missed out on as a child. Just starting The Lightning Thief. I am really enjoying the mythology behind it so far.

I‘m so unaware of this series, I honestly don‘t even know what is going to happen!

Christine I‘m reading this for the first time, too (aloud, with one of my kids at his bedtime) and really enjoying it! 3w
CafeMom I did not read these as a kid either. I read this book with my book club. I enjoyed it. 3w
Lucy_Anywhere My brother and I devoured these books as kids - we loved them 💜 3w
writerlibrarian As a geek mythology nerd i loved this series and i'm so not a kid. 😁 3w

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. 1mo
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! 1mo
LibrarianRyan @QuoteQueen yeah. They took a few years off between the last book or two, but I think they finally finished the series. 1mo
Texreader Great idea!! 1mo

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!

CarolynM I was wondering what to choose for the cover change prompt. I might give this one a go too🙂 1mo
Blh87 Such a good series! The Heroes of Olympus series that followed this series was also SO good! 1mo
LibrarianRyan Yeahhhh. @CarolynM there are a bunch of suggestion on my time line under #coverchangemidseries (I think ) 1mo

LibrarianRyan @CarolynM I lied. There are a few under that. I‘ll look up the tag I used for all the others tomorrow morning. 1mo
veritysalter Ah a fellow lover of “crackle TV”!! 🔥🔥🔥 I use it in my garden room that doesn‘t have a fire, the best noise to read to. 1mo
4thhouseontheleft @veritysalter 😂😂 YesX I love the sound! We actually have a gas fireplace in this room, but sometimes I want the sound without the heat. 🔥 1mo
veritysalter @4thhouseontheleft Best thing on YouTube, it gives off the cosy vibes, with a book, a blanket and a warm drink (dog or cat optional) - heaven. Happy reading 📖 xx 1mo

A unique combination of historical fiction, mythology, and a compelling method of storytelling, this “YA” book captured my imagination and provided a new lens through which to see the time of the Great War. Glad I picked it up on recommendation from #modernmrsdarcy!
