There was an author in store today: Treena Wynes. She was really active and engaging and I was really excited for her because of that alone. There have been so many authors who haven't stepped around the table and really made the effort to draw people's attention. I haven't had a chance to read her book yet, but I wanted to share its existence with anyone who takes the time to even read what I write (thanks man, I know who you are).

I haven't finished the series yet. I'm halfway through The Battle of the Labyrinth (book 4), and I realized what's missing. One of the biggest problems I have with this series is that Percy's perspective doesn't change. He's getting older in the series and the transition from pre-teen to teen is huge. But I feel like his thoughts and his way of thinking about things is stagnant. Yes, he relies on his old experiences and instincts when confronting new problems. He doesn't really have teenage boy problems though. I feel like even though this is a series targeted for a younger audience, there should still be some mention of Percy trying to achieve maturity. The action and adventure overwhelms any mention of Percy growing as a character and a personality.

There are hints when it comes to his relationship with Annabeth, but it's kind of pushed aside and never confronted. Maybe everything that I'm complaining about goes down in the last book... but I don't think this series had to wait so long for it to happen if that's the case. C'mon now. Percy is jealous of Luke and Annabeth's obsession with Luke, so would it really hurt to spend two pages talking about Percy's feels? I want to read about his feels that reflect my feels about his feels.

And can we talk about how fucking cute Clarisse is? Omh she's like the third grade bully that pulls your hair, but turns out to be a marshmallow.

(can we also talk about how hot I am for Apollo and Luke?)



Of course someone is going to disagree with me on this, but I just wanted to share my thoughts.

Excuse me while I pause all the books I'm currently reading so I can reread Red Dragon and finally read Silence of the Lambs, Hannibal, and Hannibal Rising.

I propose a collaborative effort to create a Hannibal Lecter cookbook. Substitute the meat for something a little less ~exotic~ and I think it'll be a hit. Mads Mikkelsen is making me want to eat everything he makes in the pilot.

FOR EVERYONE WHO HASN'T READ RED DRAGON, YOU ARE MISSING OUT.

“Can't you just like a girl who likes you back?'


'None of them likes me back. I may as well like the one I really want.”

I don't feel like writing a proper review for this book. I loved it, it was so much fun. I'm sure almost everyone has already read this series because I'm super late to the party. I'm excited to read the rest of them and my favourites are definitely Percy and Luke right now. I kind of dislike Grover. There. I said it. Everyone can commence with the haterade.

"Now that the ley lines around Cabeswater have been woken, nothing for Ronan, Gansey, Blue, and Adam will be the same. Ronan, for one, is falling more and more deeply into his dreams, and his dreams are intruding more and more into waking life. Meanwhile, some very sinister people are looking for some of the same pieces of the Cabeswater puzzle that Gansey is after..."

my book crush tbqh.

First of all the inside cover is way more appealing than this dust jacket.
