As always this was an exciting and entertaining read, but also more tense and "dark" (pun intended for the adventures in the Tartarus!)
Can't wait to read the end of the series, and I hope all these characters that I learned to love will have their happy ending!

This was my #doublespin for October @TheAromaofBooks

Bones & All: A Novel | Camille DeAngelis

⭐⭐⭐

Did I read it just because there's a movie adaptation coming out in a few weeks?! Yes, of course.. can't wait to see Guadagnino & T.Chalamet together again!
The story itself is peculiar and interesting.. I didn't love the ending, but it was an overall okay reading.

This third book of the series was a little bit more chaotic than the first two, maybe all seven demigods and multiple storylines were a LOT to handle at the same time.. But that ending?!? It was brutal 🥺😭💔

Transfer of Power | Vince Flynn

⭐⭐⭐? (3.5/5)

Another good action packed novel by Vince Flynn.. it was fun, with a lot of tension (and a lot of characters and names!!!).
This was published in 1999 and I think it was some sort of inspiration for "Olympus Has Fallen" and "Whithe House Down"..

(The italian cover is awful!?)

I've got to say it, I preferred the tv series ??
I know I'm waaaay out of this book target, but there's something in Han's writing style that don't sit well with me..a few years back I tried "To all the boys.." but I DNFed it (this time I ended the audiobook, so there's an improvement ?)

Such a great start for a new series!!! And as Italian I loved all the Roman mythology 🦅🗡🏛 I'm really curious to see how Riordan will develop this aspect. I liked all the new characters (Leo is my favourite 💟) and it was good seeing some old friends.. can't wait to read the next one and find out what happened to Percy!

⭐⭐⭐

Book #2 with the super spy/killer Mitch Rapp.. I really like the main characters but I enjoyed better the first book, this story was a bit slower and a few chapters seemed to be there just for fill in more pages.
I listened the italian audiobook (thanks Audible!) and the narrator was really good 👍🏻🎧
