“… if there is one thing I’ve learned over the eons, it’s that you can’t give up on your family, no matter how tempting they make it.”
Percy Jackson’s seventh-grade year has been surprisingly quiet. Not a single monster has set foot on his New York prep-school campus. But when an innocent game of dodgeball among Percy and his classmates turns into a death match against an ugly gang of cannibal giants, things get… well, ugly. And the unexpected arrival of Percy’s friend Annabeth brings more bad news: the magical borders that protect Camp Half-Blood have been poisoned by a mysterious enemy, and unless a cure is found, the only safe haven for demigods will be destroyed.
In this fresh, funny, and hugely anticipated follow up to The Lightning Thief, Percy and his friends must journey into the Sea of Monsters to save their beloved camp. But first, Percy will discover a stunning new secret about his family—one that makes him question whether being claimed as Poseidon’s son is an honor or simply a cruel joke.
Readathon has been my way to read more and to challenge myself with finding books that might fit the prompts and also choose a book that I would not pick on my own. I do not have any plan to join any readathon as I am taking things slow in the reading department. However, this readathon has caught my attention and I am shameless to do this. You’ll understand why…😅
The readathon is called TheOlympic Games (which you probably know based on the title of this blog) and it is a Percy Jackson themed readathon! And I have never read that series, I know I am shameless. However, according to the host of this readathon, you do not need to read the series to join. So here I am.
This was hosted by Ishi from Ishi Timeon YouTube and it will run from June 01 to 30. Basically, this is a month-long readathon. But before getting into the prompts, this readathon has teams based on the gods and goddesses. Each team has different prompts and you can either choose your team or take Rick Riordan’s quiz on “What God are you Descended from?”. I took the quiz thrice and I am in team Aphrodite.
There are only 5 prompts per team but there are also Advanced Challenges once you finished the given prompts. However, you cannot use one book for different prompts and you can only start the Advance Challenges when you finished the 5 prompts.
So this intro was already so long so let’s get into my TBR!
