Personal Post: How do books affect my life?


As you know, I  put up a poll asking what I should do for personal blog posts, and I thought this one was a good idea. A person had an idea that I should blog about how books affect my life. So this is what I’m going to do!


Since I’ve been reading since I was really little, reading has been a major part of my life. I probably started learning to read when I was about 4. Reading is just one of those things that you can do when you’re bored, tired, or upset and you want something to calm you down. Reading affects my life like that. Usually, every Christmas, or Birthday, I get books (which I’m perfectly fine with that! I usually get interesting books😃) and they all turn out to be a really good book. I’ve pretty much given myself the title of a “Bookworm”, because I’m always reading all the time (😂)

If had to list the most important things in my life, books would be on that list along with my family and friends. If I never read, I would have .2 knowledge of Greek Mythology, and a lot of my knowledge comes from books. So, I’m so very happy that I’m a bookworm, and that books exist! Everyday at lunch, I’ll go to the library, and pretty much after I’m done with my homework everyday, I’ll read. My library at home is also huge, and I’ve read every book (pretty much).

The Lost Hero:Rick Riordan| Summary and Review


The Lost Hero, is a virtual continuation of Rick Riordan’s Percy Jackson and the Olympians series, except slightly different. Instead of in 1st person point of view, Riordan wrote it as 3rd person, with 3 different characters. The titles of each chapters would be something like, XVI Jason.  The book would show the points of view from 3 different characters, instead of just Percy. Also, this series isn’t based on Greek Mythology, it also is based on Roman Mythology as well.

Summary

Jason had no idea where on earth he was, he couldn’t remember anything either. Yet, he could remember one thing, a girl named Thalia, Jason could make an exact picture of her for some reason. Jason’s friend Piper was irritated, he seemed to be brainwashed. He even forgot Piper’s name. Piper was confused, he seemed to not know what was happening. Leo didn’t seem to care, he was doing his own thing. The three were with their school on a trip to the Grand Canyon.

Then this girl named Annabeth Chase came into the scene. She seemed to be looking for someone. Jason, Piper, and Leo heard that she was looking for someone named Percy Jackson. Their “P.E Coach”, Gleeson Hedge turned out to be something even weirder, he wasn’t a human, he was a satyr. Annabeth and Gleeson Hedge, took the three to this camp all the way in Long Island, New York. This camp was called, “Camp Half Blood”.

Jason kept on calling all the Gods, their Roman name. Such as whenever someone would mention Hera, Jason would automatically say “Juno”. Jason, Piper, and Leo soon found out their Godly parent. Jason was the son of Zeus, Piper daughter of Aphrodite, and Leo son of Hephaestus (Pronounced He-Fest-us). Jason went to see the Oracle of Delphi, a girl named Rachel Dare. She said a prophecy, that meant a camper had to go on a mission. Jason was chosen, and he took Piper and Leo. He had a secret crush on Piper, and Leo asked if he could go. Jason said Leo could go as long he could find a ride.

Jason, Leo, and Piper went to find Hera (Juno) and rescue her. Leo managed to tinker with a giant golden dragon, and fixed the dragon. While the trio were on their journey, Annabeth and Artemis’ hunters were on the search for Percy Jackson.  Continue reading

Happy Winter Break!


Hey Guys! I am so very sorry that I haven’t posted since the summer. Since I’m only a sixth grader, and I  am very busy with school and other things, I haven’t been able to post!
